We were a table of eleven so there was allot of variety on our table. I ordered a appetizer of scallops rapped in bacon and they were fresh, sweet and delicious. The large homemade dinner roll that came with my lobster stew was fresh and delicious unfortunately they served it with margarine. The... read more

My wife and I visited Fred's Restaurant this past weekend. This restaurant has been around for a number of years now. It has always been know for the huge portions, great seafood and reasonable prices. The fried clams, scallops and fish and chips are great choices. Make sure you try their famous home made onion rings. You certainly won't be... More

All I can say is Meh. Would I go back again, probably not. The little packets of tartar sauce was a turn off. If I'm going to a seafood restaurant I kind of expect homemade tartar sauce (heck we even make our own homemade tartar sauce). Nothing we ordered got us excited.

MUST GO if you're in the area or make a special trip there. The food options, quality, taste and friendly staff make this restaurant a must. It has a casual atmosphere and the servers love to talk to tourists.

One of the worst meals I've had in a while. We were a family of four and our meal came to $90. Not a bad price for good food but sadly this was not good food. The only thing that was good was the mozzarella sticks. Most of the food on the menu was deep fried - this should be... More

I am a fitness buff and my daughter is gluten free so this place did not stand a chance of meeting our expectations, if we had only known. From the huge white bun served with a packet of margarine I new we were... More

If it's deep fried, they have it and do it very well. Nice clean spot in Cap-Pele with lots of seating. We noticed it is well used by the local people for family partys and such. Always good and hot here. We will return.
