Stopped the other night getting off Septa and what am amazing french dip, along with yummy chicken soup/salad. The owner/chef really has stepped up to the plate and improved food from the original owner. I would highly recommend. Waiter was an incredible young man, who was more than accommodating. Improvement over some of the woman who worked in there.

We put together a funeral reception very quickly. The Owner and Head Chef were nothing short of amazing. We had family style pastas, Roast beef au jus, veggies and the best roasted potatoes ever. The Wait staff was beyond kind and accommodating. They are wonderful people who bent over backwards for a group of 70+ people. We received a considerable... More

This place always is crowded because they always have good food at fair prices. Frequently visit with coworkers for lunch and we're always happy.

While food is good and plentiful, this place is in serious need of some upgrades. Like the land (restaurant) that time forgot. Service is ok, servers seem nice, bar was filled with what appeared to be regulars who have been going there for the last 30 or 40 years. Definitely NOT a younger crowd whatsoever.

Management response:

Thank you kindly for your review. Freddie's Tavern is an 82 year old restaurant and we have a lot of customers that have been loyal for a very long time, and in many cases, decades even. We are currently in the process of a major renovation of our banquet room, dining room, front lobby, and all bathrooms. We hope that... More

Our veal was raw in middle - told to order something else since cook can't. Steak sandwich was really just thin sliced roast beef. The sauce/gravy has lost isn't familiar taste - that's what happens when the family sells.

Years ago I frequented this restaurant often, while working on nearby Stuyvesant Avenue. My expectations were high. I read where the owners had changed over the years. I had a turkey wrap and my friend had the crab cake lunch. The food was good and fresh! The building greatly needed work, and was having renovations as we ate lunch. The... More

Here for family style lunch with family and friends with reservations. Staff friendly but rushed, not enough help. Food was average (salad drenched in dressing, rigatoni - nothing special, chicken parmigian dry, roast beef unfortunately the same, not especially flavorful). Congenial bartender. Big parking lot. Easy access to highway.

Over the past weekend my wife and I went to Freddie's to see a band that was playing there for the first time. We had lunch once in the past, under the old owner, and it was average at best. From the excellent waitress, Sheila K, to the special personal piazza and chicken parm sandwich it was a major improvement... More

For years my husband and I went to Freddie's Tavern and enjoyed the food and management. We heard there was a change in ownership and also that the food wasn't so great. I decided to give Freddie's a try anyway and recommended it to my retired teacher group for dinner and drinks. We sat at the bar and I was... More

Freddie's has been a staple in West Trenton for many years. It is now under new ownership and although I was leery at first, I must it is the same great food with even a few improvements. The crab cakes were always sensational and now they are even better. For a good meal at a reasonable price, Freddie's is the... More
