When looking for great food in the Ghent section of Norfolk, look no further than the No Frills Grill. A no-nonsense, casual establishment that great food, fantastic libations and friendly staff. They feature award-winning meatloaf and write-home ribs. The whole menu is a sure bet!...More

No Frills has a unique menu. You can always get something not found on all other menus. Great opportunity to try something new or something old with a new twist. All the different food I've tried has been very good. Staff is friendly and accommodating.

I wouldn't consider this a "healthy" Restaurant but more like comfort food. Google and check out the Menu online to get an idea. There's quite a variety of food. Salads are great too. Enjoy!

Yes, they are marked on the menu and the wait staff can make suggestions if you let them know.
