Norske Nook Norwegian Restaurant

Serving Tradition Daily

At Norske Nook we feed the stomach and the soul. All of our four Western Wisconsin restaurants (locations in Osseo, Rice Lake, Hayward and DeForest) serve home cooked Norwegian food with an American flare. In addition to serving a great meal, our dining environment & hospitality evoke feelings of home and tradition from the traditional Scandinavian dress of our wait staff to the rosemailing and Scandinavian art that decorate the restaurant. We serve foods that you may typically only get at grandma’s house during the holidays.

Norwegian Food & American Favorites

Unlike so many restaurants today, we create meals from scratch. Our family-style kitchen is filled aromas of slow-cooked roasts, real mashed potatoes, fresh Norwegian lefse, and, of course, homemade pie. Our time-honored recipes bring back memories and create new ones. Specials are served daily.

On Norske Nook’s restaurant menu you’ll find a combination of Norwegian food and American favorites. For example, Norske Nook is proud to continue the tradition of Norwegian lefse (lef-suh). Our lefse wraps can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Breakfast is also served all day. Every year we also serve a traditional lutefisk dinner on the first Sunday in October and December.

Service with a Smile

Your experience at our restaurant doesn’t end with the food. We understand that great customer service is an important part of the restaurant-dining experience. Dressed in traditional Scandinavian apparel, our servers have been with Norske Nook an average of ten years. They know many customers by name. We don’t just take your order, we enjoy friendly conversation and getting to know you and your family. After your meal, be sure to stop by the bakery to see what items we have for you to take home for your family.

With every meal, the entire staff at Norske Nook will exceed your expectations in service, quality, and value. We are always here to welcome you with a great piece of pie and a smile. You’ll never leave hungry!
