OK, I'm not from the Atlantic seaboard. When I'm there, I have a preference for blue crabs (in season) and crab cakes. I couldn't get past the Crab Cake Benedict on the brunch menu. Neither could my wife and son. So what? It was excellent! No Frill scored high on service, atmosphere, people watching, easy parking and really great food.... More

I saw all the reviews and I decided to give this a shot. We had burger and seafood. Both of them were great. We went there for the second time and I decided to choose from sandwiches. It was not as good as I expected. There was no taste in it whatsoever. This place is pretty crowded most of the... More

I've been here multiple times for lunch and dinner, and always needed a box to take back the rest because portions are huge (and the prices are reasonable). I always liked the food I had for lunch and dinner. Then I went for brunch. That was way better than lunch and dinner IMO. I had the Philly Cheese Steak Omelette... More

We have given up on the Va Beach location...not impressed with the food. Had been to the Norfolk location for drinks so decided to give dinner a try. The food was OK but the service was strange indeed. We arrived about 5:40 PM and I noticed drinks were reduced for Happy Hour at the bar. I asked our waitress if... More

No fill's has been a favorite of mine for over 8 years! I first went for a co-workers birthday and have since made it a tradition to go there on my birthday as well. When in Norfolk or Virginia beach (their second location at Hilltop) No frill's is where I go to eat. I always come home with left overs... More

I've been here numerous times and every time we go, the food is always on point!!! When out in Norfolk and in need of a meal, this is the spot to go. The restaurant fills up quickly so finding the "right" time to go will help easy or reduce your wait time.

Went Sunday (after seeing the giant duck)lol... it was crowded but service was still great. Had the reuben sandwich with onion rings-great. It was overstuffed and the onion rings came with... More
