A great mix of locals, tourists and foreigners were up early on Saturday morning to listen, dance and drink to authentic Cajun music. It is worth the drive off the beaten path!

Repeat visitor to Fred's. Never get enough of it. Love Tante Sue. Great Cajun music. Great Blood Marys. People come all over the world to visit Fred's. Meet lots of new folks and do some Cajun dancing.

A native of mamou, Louisiana, I can certainly recommend this establishment. Wonderful people. True Cajun music on a Saturday morning. I rarely go anymore, because I have been so many times. Plenty of fond memories with Mr Fred and Taunte Sue. Do not miss this if in the area on a Saturday morning.

Our friend Debbie in Alexandria said, "Don't schedule ANYTHING for Saturday morning!". We didn't and found ourselves at Fred's Lounge in li'l ol' Mamou, LA. Got a seat at the bar and met Tante Sue. From that point on we were on a Cajun E-ticket ride! Her holster and the bar got us feelin' good, the foot didn't stop tappin',... More

Just read everyone else's reviews and then go! This is the real deal. The party starts early make sure to buy a drink and tip the band they don't charge a penny for this experience.

Heard about this place while we were at the RV park. Could have stayed for the whole four hours without any problem. The music is fabulous and the environment is like walking back in time. Unfortunately Tante Sue was not there as she had recently broken her hip but we sure heard lots of stories from the regular patrons. This... More

I have been to LA many times and never got the chance to go to Freds Lounge. Now I will never miss an opportunity to go. This place is great, nice people, great bloody marys.

We came for the Saturday Cajun Music Jam Session being broadcast live on the radio, along with 10 of our friends. Arrived at 8:30 a.m. and was able to get the last table. Enjoyed the large Bloody Mary for $8 and received great service and greetings from the locals. Music was fantastic and is a "must do place" if you... More

The last time had been to Fred's was just over 39 years ago. It was the day I graduated from Mamou High School. You see, back then 18 years old was the drinking age, I was kind of enjoying being there legally. I was sipping on my second beer, waiting for my friend Mike Dupuis to get there, when Mr.... More
