I come here for the cornbread!!! It's so good! I like the menu at No Frill bc I think it provides enough variety for a little of everything for everyone. Everything is pretty tasty. Basically I don't know if there is a bad dish on the menu. The only issue is space and it always seems busy which makes service... More

Local friends of ours recommended meeting here for dinner. Seems like a fun area to explore but on a rainy and unseasonably cold night, we headed right to the resto and enjoyed local brews, delicious apps, and copious amounts of amazingly fresh and delicious food. The menu is EXTENSIVE, so much so that I just couldn't decide what to eat!... More

We visited with a small group over the weekend. We were seated in the middle of the room, and it was a little too loud and crowded for my taste. However, our server was extremely sweet and knowledgeable, and the food was amazing so my family and I (being understanding as our daughter works at a restaurant) left happy. Overall... More

Quite busy for a Monday night, but decided to wait. Wasn't long, about 15 minutes. Nice atmosphere, friendly waiter. Food was good, onion soup was plentiful, lots of cheese on top, just the way I like it. Killer dirty vodka martini's. All in all, a fun night with family members.

Before or after a movie at the Naro in Ghent or a shopping trip on 21st St. or Colley Ave. the locals know to go to No Frill Grill for lunch or dinner. My two favorite meals are the Tuna Melt and the Norfolk Brown, yumm! On the weekends the restaurant can get busy and you might have to wait... More

We love the eclectic menu so a great go- to place with a large groups who have picky eating preferences. Can be very noisy, so only plan to talk to your nearest dinner mates.
