“Super Popular - Straight-Forward Food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This restaurant is off the beaten path in Ghent, but it's clear that people beat a path to their door. It is always bustling and the delicious, un-fussy food at really great prices is the main reason. Love the Spotswood salad and buffalo shrimp! Everything is great, and they do brunch!

“Once there it's all good!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Lunched 2 consecutive days at NFG recently. The menu pleased a "weight-watching" former co-worker and petite lady the first day; six curmudgeonly ROMEO's (Retired Old Men Eating Out) the second. Accommodations are comfortable, the decor pleasing to the eye, and you can have a conversation without shouting. Menu selection is awesome, preparation excellent and tasty, portions generous (took half of both my lunches home), wait staff pleasant and doting. Be advised this place is POPULAR and fills up BEFORE NOON for lunch. Get there at least 20 minutes beforehand to avoid waiting for a table. Also recommend knowing your way around the area, because of the many One-Way streets and limited parking. But once inside, you're going to have a very enjoyable meal!

Great place for the entire family. Food isn't great.... The exception is the crab dip- one of the yummiest ever!

Nice wines, sandwiches are good and plentiful. Breakfast is good and the early evening specials are good too.

“Fresh and yummy...my favorite spot in Norfolk!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

No Frill in Norfolk has long been a favorite of mine and my last visit was no exception. It's a "must stop" on any foodie's journey through Norfolk. :) The ingredients are always fresh and the flavor combinations inspiring. Enjoy! :)
