It's only been open for a few months, but The Norwegian is already packed with great food, strong drinks and an incredible atmosphere.

The Norwegian, 1402 N Main Street, officially opened in Rockford last December but when you take one step inside, you'd be convinced it's been around for years.

Maybe it's the giant bar in the middle of the restaurant or the natural light beaming in, but it seems like the staff and customers are one big happy family.

The buzz about The Norwegian started well before it opened, so we knew we had to plan a trip to visit Emily and Mark for season two of Ate One Five.

Follow Ate One Five on Instagram and let us know where we should go next on Facebook.

Catch Midday Michelle on 97 ZOK from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
