Perfect Meal Spot for Tourists and Locals!

Great food. Great atmosphere. Great drinks. Great prices. Great location. Within walking distance of so many things- including O.D.U and Downtown Norfolk. Definitely recommend checking No Frill out! Good for lunch or dinner!

I have always enjoyed "No Frill" in Ghent and Hilltop. The food is consistently great and portions are more than generous.

I love this place. Great food, great service, and great prices. You do not leave there hungry. They have the best ribs in town and you must try their artichoke dip.

I live pretty close to this restaurant. It is always packed, but that's understandable because they give you great food and a lot of it. One of my favorites is the barbecue rib appetizer -- it is actually enough for a meal! It comes with a black bean and corn salsa and warm corn bread. They have a larger portion... More

We eat here on a fairly regular basis and rarely have any complaints. Salads are fresh, sandwiches are good and dinner entrees always look good. Not gourmet, but good American fare!

Our friends from Norfolk suggested this grill - we were not disappointed. I had a salad with grilled tuna - the tuna was expertly prepared - the salad full of a variety of fresh vegetables and cheese. The sandwiches and fish platter were also good. What impressed the most was the willingness of the staff to answer all our questions... More

No Frill Grill is one of my favorite places to go for brunch. They make an absolutely fabulous mango-mosa!

We chose this eatery based on Trip Advisor reviews and website menu. We were glad we did. Though they were very crowded for a late Sunday evening, we were seated immediately and brought water with a lemon slice. Server was friendly throughout our interactions. The food was delivered promptly and as ordered. Serving size was generous. Food looked appealing on... More

My husband and I went to the No Frill Bar and Grill for our date night on a Friday night. I found the food to be very average. We had pirogies as an appetizer. While we of course enjoyed the bacon and cheese, the inside of the pirogies was completely unseasoned. I ordered the crab cake sandwich. The first sandwich... More
