“I had an amazing experience at Captain Groovy’s Seafood Bar! The food was amazing, especially the Oyster Rockefeller and bucket of garlic butter Clams. For our main meal we had the fried flounder and the broiled flounder topped with lump crab meat, shrimp, and creamy bearnaise sauce.Jenny made our experience great! She was on top of everything.The manager's personal touch made us feel truly valued. Catch their happy hour deals before 6 pm. They also have daily specials. This place is my new favorite seafood spot and deserves every star!”

Glass Light Restaurant 201 Granby St, Norfolk American • $$$
201 Granby St, Norfolk

“Visited this restaurant on a staycation. I called and reserved the Chefs Counter for two and tried the Five course with wine pairing. We enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and watching each dish be prepared. The selection was excellent and I definitely enjoyed the waitress expertise in wine. The chef that was present for the day was not the regular chef. However, he was very friendly, explained every dish in detail and answered all questions without hesitation. We missed out on seeing the museum because we took our time enjoying each dish that was served.”

No Frill Bar And Grill 806 Spotswood Ave, Norfolk American • $$

“No Frill once again succeeds on all fronts. I haven't been to the eatery in several years and stopped in with a friend in February 2024, with an hour to go before we were due for a live theater show in downtown Norfolk. We let our waitress know that we "had a deadline" and sure enough, she delivered. My pal and I both ordered the reliable BBQ meatloaf with mashed, crisp green beans, two onion rings and sweet cornbread... which came out promptly. The potatoes could have been hotter, but all else was divine. Plentiful, flavorful and well-presented. We were in and out in 40 minutes. Once again, despite its horrific name, No Frill is one of the best restaurants in Norfolk. A+”

“My wife and I finally made it here after living in the area for 2 years. We went for restaurant week and I must say the hype is justified. The Brussel sprouts were some of the best I’ve ever had, the charcoal chicken was so juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The sticky toffee pudding was a perfect way to finish it off. The real star and headliner was my wife’s order of Ricotta Gnudi which was some of the best food I think I’ve ever eaten. We will be back many times!”

Gogi Guys Korean BBQ 717 W 21st St, Norfolk Korean • $$$
717 W 21st St, Norfolk

“Wow! This was absolutely the best Korean BBQ place I have ever been to! I was hesitant when I saw it was $35 per person but you get to order up to 5 proteins so when you do the math you're doing well. I started with the chili pineapple bulgogi and that was excellent, especially when combined with the yum yum sauce. I had the squid next and it was good but took a while to cook through properly. My wife had the BBQ marinated pork chop and she said it was delicious. I then ordered the rib eye, which doesn't come seasoned, so you'll enjoy it with the yum yum sauce also. The showstopper was the LA Galbi (beef short rib)...I seriously may only order that next time as the seasonings were so perfectly balanced of sweet and savory... absolutely my favorite thing here. The yuja tea is a citrus flavor but better than just how that sounds. Before you leave you need to leave enough room for the tiramisu... absolute perfect level of sweetness. We shall definitely return and continue to give them our business!”

“Small Filipino destination off of Granby. Went here with a few colleagues for a quick lunch. The staff was fast and the food was really tasteful. My only problem was the amount of bone shards scattered throughout the dish. It felt like something you could eat rather quickly but because I kept running into shards of bone from the chicken I was very careful and felt like it took away from the enjoyment.”
