I think my expectations were higher than the results. It may be my fault though. I ordered a French dip and didn't care for the horseradish sauce on it. I thought it would have come on the side. My friend had a turkey pita that she loved. The best sandwich she had while in Norfolk. The children's burger was huge!... More

A college friend lives in the area and we always get together whenever I'm in town. And her dining spots are never a disappointment. The food was on the plus side of awesome! I had the French Onion soup (outstanding) and the Seafood Trilogy (crab cake, fried jumbo shrimp, blackened fish on a bed of sauteed spinach and a corn/bean... More

The food was really good, but what surprised me the most was that when the staff said hello and ask how I was doing, I believed they were really interested. Now maybe they practice that because they know it will turn heads, but after so many years of hearing disingenuous greetings from restaurant workers, it really made this place feel... More

I have been here many times over the years and have always had a great experience. The menu has a great selection and everything my family or I have tried has been greatly enjoyed. The servers are wonderful too. One of my best local favorites.

Today I had lunch at the No Frill Bar and Grill. It was good but nothing to write home about. I tried the crab cake sandwich with fries. The fries were fine, just the way they should be. The crab cake was ok but not the best I have ever had. The lettuce, onion and tomato slices were the largest... More

No Frill Bar and Grill is one of our favorite casual dining locations in the heart of Ghent. The menu is loaded with wonderful selection that are always good. It is a fun atmosphere and friendly service that has made this a landmark.

Our family went to dinner with friends the other night and the food was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals with the exception of the hot brown. Only a few bites were taken, it was just not very good. The wait staff did not ask if he wanted something else. Good thing we'd had appetizers before ordering the meals. The seafood... More
