One of my favorite places here in Norfolk, in fact it's actually one of my favorites in all of Hampton Roads. Was introduced several years ago, at the inception of my relocation to this area; I immediately fell in love with the Meatloaf and cornbread. I've since graduated to the "Shrimp & Chips" which is the only dish I order.... More

BLUF: Good, but I wasn't impressed enough for the price. I stopped into No Frill before a concert on a Saturday night. It was fairly busy, but I was able to be seated after only about a 5 minute wait. I ordered the duck ($19) which came with Hawaiian fried rice and an egg. The rice was okay, just not... More

My wife's meal of fish was very good, but my choice was average. However, I did order a bland meal of a turkey sandwich and broccoli. The thing to note about No Frill Bar and Grill is the size of the meals. They are big, easily enough food for two meals.

We stopped at this location based on previous reviews. It definitely lived up to its praises. Although it was busy, we were sat and served quickly. We ordered the special of the day which was a brisket sandwich. The portions were enormous and the taste amazing. I would recommend sharing.

I have been there twice in the last month, and both trips were excellent. Portions are large, prices are reasonable and there is something for everyone. Flavors were spot on. One of my new favorite places.

Makes my mouth water thinking of their excellent salads....my son loved their buffalo tenders and the sald with tuna on top was to die for! Been twice and can't wait to go back...(Atmosphere would be too noisy for my hard of... More

Went back to this place when I was in town. This restaurant is one of three places I like to go to whenever I'm in Norfolk. My smoked salmon BLT was delicious and they have a good selection of local beers on tap. We were seated on the sidewalk section, which made me worried since it was cold outside, but... More
