We visited Fred's on two occasions during our weekend stay. Since it was the offseason not too many places are open but Fred's was, and as a bar I can see why. It felt like a place were locals went for drinks after work. The bar area is large and drinks were well priced. Nothing too fancy but service was... More

I looked up Fred's on trip advisor and everyone had great things to say about Fred's. Well let me tell you it's all true. The food is extremely excellent. The beer selection is phenomenal. The service is out of this world! It is a simple down to earth restaurant that has been in business since the 30's! Now I know... More

Delicious and plentiful in an old time tavern atmosphere . Weather was ice enough to eat in the outdoor area .

Place is jumping when we get there. Only one waitress and she was hustling. Got our drinks and a wait for our food. Get the grilled cheese on cibata roll, worth the wait. Lots of specials every day and taco Tuesday is a good one. Service very friendly and coffee refills were right in time. Don' t miss Fred's tavern.

We love Fred's! My wife and I and our family have been going to Fred's since we were dating 30 years ago. We live it more each time we go.

I don't think I have ever been to Fred's when it hasn't been busy. That said, on a Wednesday evening in September, we were promptly seated at around 5:45. There was a nice selection of sandwich specials. The service is efficient and friendly. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food ... cheese steaks, fish sandwiches and salads.

Fred's is basically the only game in town other then the reeds and other expensive hotel bars. Fred's is friendly and reasonably priced for a tourist town. what I loved about Fred's was his liquor store side. very low prices on fifths and he sells chips and munchies. If your in stone harbor hit Fred's up after 8 pm and... More

Was visiting the area with a large group of golfers. Called to see if they could accommodate us on a Friday night. They were very accommodating and we only had to wait a short time even though they were very busy. Fred's was recommended by a stranger at my hotel and they weren't wrong! Great burgers.

After reading some reviews we decided to stop in last evening as we were in the mood for comfort food. Glad we did! Great, well priced pub grub. The wings were great as were the steak sandwich special and the burger. Nice selection of beer, wine and cocktails, easily something for everyone. And service was excellent. From the friendly hostess... More
