I highly recommend this reastaurant for lunch or dinner. Great crab cakes , BBQ sandwich, and sandwiches are very good. Chilling is very good. Nice salads. This place has perogies!..hard to find at a restaurant. Sides are great. It is not really "no frills", that was a predecessor place where there were no waitresses and you ordered like at Panera,...

This Ghent neighborhood spot has an incredibly varied menu and the food is always deliciously consistent. Whether you're out for lunch or a big dinner, you'll find something that fits the bill. This is also a great spot for diners with varying tastes / dietary restrictions because they aim to please.

This place never disappoints. Good for lunch or dinner. Get the Cajun Catfish or the Funky Chicken sandwich.

The wife and I visited No Frill last month. Everything I've tried on the menu so far has been great. The portions are large and we typically take food home from this great Norfolk restaurant.

My husband and I went for date night and enjoyed ourselves. I had the meatloaf meal with string beans, potatoes, and onions rings. It was so much food that I had enough for lunch the next day and all for about $10. My husband had a turkey club sandwich and it was delicious as well. Our waiter was excellent, professional...

No Frill has been a favorite since childhood, every time I'm near Norfolk I plan to stop and grab something. Not once have I had a bad experience it's always been above and beyond!!!! Spotswood melt is to die for, the nachos are a meal in itself for at least 4 people! Beers are good, have craft options which is... More

Great food with a lot to eat and share. Can be noisy but it is worth it. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable.

The food is so good and the portions are ridiculously big. A friend and I shared brunch and still had leftovers. The staff were so friendly and our waitress was so accommodating and pleasant. I can't wait to go back my next visit.

I had a great dinner here tonight. It was a half chicken with steamed squash and potato salad (I substituted sautéed spinach for the potatoes) on the daily specials. It was all very good for a decent price. I even got a pretty decent spicy bloody mary. I will definitely eat here again soon.
