Yum!

We went to No Frill for my birthday and it was great! The portions of food are large for the price paid. It was very good. The staff were pleasant and very friendly. No Frill became a favorite amongst our group of friends!

We had been here several years ago for a lunch and I recall the sandwiches being very good. On this Saturday, we stopped in at 5:30. Reservations aren’t taken on weekends. The line was out the door. We put our name in for 2 and were told it would be about a 20-25 minute wait. It was a 25 minutes... More

Food was great. Tasty and rather large portions. Can't see how they only charge $4.99 for the kids menu when it was got sized and came with a decent sized side. Prices for beer were average to high, my stout was $7.50 or so for a really small glass. Like that they serve local beer too. Bbq sandwich was good.... More

Very popular establishment, always quite busy so be prepared for a wait for seating. Food is very good, is in an area where you can have a meal and walk to shops.

The food here is consistently good and generous portions. We often share a meal. It is reasonably priced.

I've been to both locations on several occasions and pleased each time. Great food and excellent value. I like the changing menu/specials and the desserts are divine. Servers have always been outstanding as well.

We normally dine at this fine eatery before or after a movie at the Naro -- our favorite moviehouse. Last night the special was a meatloaf dinner for $ 10. Said dinner included a large, inch think slice of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, greens and onion rings -- I had to carry half the meal home with me!!! I also generally... More
