They immediately came to the window and said they'd be right with us. Over 20 minuets went by, and no one took our order at the window. We rang the bell an additional time, and then left. They obviously weren't interested in our order. Hard to explain to a 5 year old.... They didn't take our order within 15 minutes.... More

This was by far one of the worst experiences of all the times I have travelled to the Oregon Coast! REALLY $14.00 for some chicken fingers and fries. Ice-cream scoops so small, I think they used a teaspoon instead of a scoop! A hot fudge sundae in the smallest possible bowl was $6.95. It took over a half hour just... More

Over priced food, advertised fresh fish and it's frozen Alaskan cod from Sysco. Employees treated wrong in front of customers and as a Serve Safe certified food handler saw many violations of food safety. Will not stop there again.

All the way from England we happened to be driving along and needing a snack meal. There was Gat Freddy's! The young woman who greeted us was friendly, polite and informative. The menu describes what you are going to get and you get it quickly. Two of us had a burger served with fries; three had tomato sandwiches. The food... More

Over the years we have stopped at Fat Freddy's for a quick meal.. I love the old pictures of the area that are posted around the walls of the restaurant. It is a nice friendly family place and you never go away hungry...

Went for the name and got a cute mom and pop style vibe. A little on the spendy side for thier style but after eating the Jr. Fat Freddy hamburger and a grilled ham and cheese each had fries served all was well. The fries were great light but golden and crunchy and service was great

This is an interesting place. The food is good, very good. Burgers are wonderful, staff is very friendly, chowder and fish and chips good, fish tacos very good. While you are here you can get a sense of history by reading all the old photos on the walls.

I wanted a quick, filling bite to go and on the spur of the moment chose Fat Freddy's as it is located just down from the beach access. I ordered a veggie sandwich with swiss cheese from the menu, thinking low fat, reasonably healthy and the cheese would give me the protein I need to keep me going. Although the... More

this review quite shocks me because our veggie sandwich is priced at $5.90 it does include fresh veggies, a real slice of Tillamook swiss cheese,lettuce, tomatoe, guacamole, pickles, mayo and cucumber, served on wheat bread. we do also carry the original garden burger. served on a sesame seed bun with our special sauce, garden patty, swiss cheese, pickles, lettuce tomatoe...

My son and I each ordered the burger with fries and a milkshake. We were very satisfied with the taste and fresh ingredients! It is always a pleasure to be able to get fast food that is delicious and not from a chain! It filled us up nicely after our wonderful beach ride! We also enjoyed the down home decor... More

We ordered the special Fish & Chips and was disappointed. The fish itself looked great but the beer batter and oil it was cooked in was not good. The oil had a rancid taste and oily. Probably needs to change oil out. The chowder was disappointing not very good. Probably came out of can. The service was slow and odd.... More

Do try to time your trip lunch or dinner here. This is stepping back in time to a family-run diner that has all the family there and fantastic hamburgers. It is very individual and very reasonable.
