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.

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
