We have been going to Fred's for years. The big draw for me is there IPA beer selection and good food. They have a ton of beers on tap 25+. This place is conveniently located in the antique part of Snohomish. Great place to stop if you are touring the quaint town. Have a beer and the Asian Nachos. They... More

Impromptu first time visit for me. Friend said the bisque was reportedly really good. Got that w a Reuben pastrami classic. Marbled Jewish Ryebread-grilled just right. Sauce n cheese was perfectly balanced w the sauerkraut. Think they may marinate the kraut in beer or stout - slightly darker and smoother sharp notes of vinegar than usual - really good portion...

Great place to hang out, drink beer and BS. Food is always good, a mix of burgers, pizza, some pasta and fish and chips. It can get kind of noisy and there might be a wait unless you get there early, but it's totally worth it.

Love their Asian nachos. Great scotch and whisky. Beer flights are another favorite. Some unusual beer choices that were delicious. Include this place on you food & beverage tour of the area. Great place to meet people for dinner.

This is an easy place to like, since it has a good many menu choices. It is a casual place with a quiet ambiance that makes it easy to talk over lunch, etc. and not be distracted by noise. The food is good and a decent price point. The bar serves pretty much anything you want.

It was raining the day we visited Snohomish but that didn't stop my husband and I from having a wonderful time in this cozy little town. We stopped at Fred's to get out of the rain and have a beer but once we saw the menu, we knew we had to try the food. We were not let down. Between... More

Been here many times over the years. Hasn't changed much but is one of the most visited bars/restaurants in Snohomish. Good social atmosphere and great for meeting up with friends. The food is somewhat on the expensive side but not bad tasting.

Plopped down here for dinner after an afternoon of antique shopping. The atmosphere is relaxed & casual with friendly, attentive service. The food was very good also. I had the meatloaf, which was excellent.

It's Monday, that's it. The staff on Monday are more interested in talking with each other than service. Again only 7 customers in the restaurant. Two Southwest salads and both made with old brown lettuce, who ever cut up the lettuce and made the salad should be let go. One of the owners should be there on Monday to supervise.... More

Stopped in because my wife wouldn't stop raving about the Asian Nachos. OK, they are pretty good. Fred's also has a very impressive list of beers and ales on tap. Worth it for you to stop in for some refreshment next time you are in Snohomish 👍
