Visited for breakfast, as I read all the good reviews decided to give it a try. Just moved here and trying to find the good diners and restaurants. I'm afraid I won't be back. The cook/owner (assumption) was cleaning the tables as we walked in, while the waitress (twitter generation) fiddled with her phone. Silverware was dirty, not just water... More

Good food, small quarters, but food at a great price. It is probably the best diner in Watertown. It reminds one of diners in the 50's and 60's.

I don't remember the last time I went out for break fast and my whole family of 4 and got full and it cost less than $40. The breakfast is good. I will be going back to try the wild menu with gator and kangaroo for dinner.

If you like to eat at a diner that will remind you of a classic 50's , clean, large portions of homemade food, then this is the place. All last summer Friede's was my spot every Sat. for a great breakfast! Home made bread that I would order toasted reminded me of my grandmothers. The menu offers just about everyone... More

If you haven't been here yet and crave the past for great large portions of good breakfast fare ( I ,have not been able to try lunch or dinner yet), you are truly missing something. From the outside. Friede's looks like just another lonely diner reminiscent of the fifties,but new ownership spiff-it up inside . You can eat at the... More
