We were in Norfolk for one day. This place had great reviews so we gave it a try. We arrived early (before 5) and the place filled up shortly after arriving. Don't let the "bar and grill" fool you. The food is excellent. I tried the smoked salmon BLT sandwich with cucumber and a homemade sauce. Great blend of flavors.... More

This restaurant is perfect for all the family. Their menu has something for everyone; burgers, quesadillas, sandwiches, salads, etc. Each item is prepared beautifully and all the ingredients are fresh. Ideal for Brunch, lunch or dinner.

Great food and allowed a birthday cake and even put a candle on it. Waiter was wonderful and he dealt great with the 4 children we had.

Consistently good, at reasonable prices, with complex daily specials. Well mixed drinks. Inclusive and diverse clientele. Professional service. An anchor business in the neighborhood. Only negative: it can get very busy and noisy.

I love the variety available at No Frill. Depending on the time of day, it can be pretty packed (which is generally a good sign even when it's an inconvenience), but service is almost always very good. The quantity slightly outstrips the quality, but neither is lacking. When I want something substantial and close, I come here.

Well prepared, fresh food attractively presented. Appetizers, Soups, sandwiches and salads are all terrific. Service is friendly and fast. Worth a visit!

I've been going here for years, and whenever an out of town friend asks if we can go to a good local place. I take them to No Frill. Excellent service and food, but I must admit the only entree I ever order is the penne pasta with portobello mushroom and andouille sausage. Had it my first time and refuse... More

This used to be our favourite restaurant for years... we haven't been back for nearly a year now because the last 5 times were just steadily worse and worse. Recipes were changed, potato salad went from savoury to sweet to just plain bad and stale. Pulled Pork sandwich went from sweet bbq style to vinegar style and was just awful.... More
