I’ve been dining at NoFrill since 2010. The experiences have been between Very Good and Excellent, but never less than Very Good. A few weeks ago My Lady had a taste for fried shrimp and fries. When we went to NoFrill, we each ordered the shrimp and fries. The platters were loaded … delicious! My Lady couldn’t eat all of... More

We accidentally found this restaurant featured on Triple D after a drive to Sandbridge beach. Small inside, cute decor& friendly staff made it inviting. Raspberry glazed scallops as an appetizer told us we definitely picked a great place, but the tacos were amazing! My bf had the fish& I had pork w/a delicious honey sriracha glaze & pineapple salsa &... More

No Frill Bar is a place you go to have good food in a very casual and relaxed environment. It's a neighborhood place that meets the needs of the people around it. We started with chili which was very good and went on to Buffalo shrimp and chips which were excellent. Salads are large enough to share. Prices are very... More

No Frill Grill has a great menu and the prices are reasonable. The service was very good. Great place to go for lunch. Ideal for couples, family, friends or just by yourself.

I had the pierogis and it was awesome! Great ambience even without frills. Friendly staff, very responsive. Minimal wait time even during lunch.

This is great place to eat as they have selections for every taste. Had the Spotswood salad that was delicious especially with Raspberry Vinaigrette. Chili was hearty and had great flavor. Our server Justin was very attentive and accomodating, wish all servers were as great! Go enjoy!

Though the portions are large the quality is poor. In addition the fries were cold and the meat fatty.

This is a locals' favorite located in the Ghent section of Norfolk. It's "upscale casual", with original artwork, cool lighting and nice architectural detail. In good weather, the outdoor seating area is a place to see and be seen. The food is always fresh, flavorful and well presented, but I give it highest marks for consistency. Excellent salads, wraps, burgers,... More

A friend and I went in on Saturday afternoon about 2 PM. The restaurant was still busy but we were seated right away. My friend was hesitant as she had eaten at the Hilltop location and did not have a good experience. We started with the Drunken Cheese Bread. It was hot and gooey and very good. Great comfort food.... More
