We are locals and enjoy dining here on a regular basis. They have a very large menu to choose from and have daily specials. The food is consistently good with generous portions. The prices are very reasonable. I love the fresh tuna pita and the salads. My husband really enjoys the cheese steak and my daughter likes the crab cakes.... More

I tried something new. A vege-burger? Who knew? It was crispy and the bun was fresh. I had mashed potatoes and it was wonderful? Great service, great parking for a Wednesday night. Very low key and I enjoyed the vibe here

Everything about No Frill Grill is simply - awesome! I generally try to avoid the 6:30 p.m. queue, but the food is mouth-watering, the service is quick, the food is well priced (and a lot too)! The only one thing that No Frill should consider is their restrooms - there is something quirky about the number/place/process. Still, the food is... More

This place is a bit on the funky side - funny servers, colorful people abound there. Food was great, promptly served, and I left both satisfied and smiling. My companion likes off the beaten path places and this one qualified. Given the full parking lot a lot of the locals regard this as one of their favorite lunch spots. We... More

Can't go wrong with this place. We ordered four meals and all four of us said that we would order the same again. Had the pumpkin ale draft for five bucks, can't beat it. We'll definitely be back!

Overall great dining experience. No wait at 8pm on a Saturday. Energetic waitress, greated us and helped us sort our meal choices. Her recommendations were spot on. Food came at exactly the right intervals. Drinks, Appetizer, and main meals allowing us to enjoy our company. Never felt rushed and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. Definitely would come back again.

Doing some shopping in Norfolk, and based on the reviews we chose No Frills. Maybe the best choice in a while. We started off with the Drunken Cheese Bread. Amazing! My wife had the Funky Chicken, and I had the Scallops, Shrimp, and Italian Sausage Pasta. Both were excellent! They also had a great beverage selection. My wife had a... More

Really enjoyed dinner here with friends. The portions are large, the food is wonderful. The hummus and artichoke dip appetizers are tremendous. This place deserves the outstanding reviews. I'll go again.

The Spotswood Burger is and continues to be one of the best sandwiches I have ever had at this restaurant. We have eaten here many times in the past and will continue to do so. The quality never changes. It is always good. I have my sights on the club sandwich next time.
