Great food and service!

We stopped here in our way into Halifax. While the location is more urban/business complex, the food was fresh and service very personal. The whole family loved it!

Fredies is one of the best, if not THE BEST fish and chips spots in Halifax. Batter is perfect. Fries are home cut. Service is impeccable. Usually order by phone to go and they wait til you walk through door and take the food from the frier so it's VERY fresh. Staff is SUPER friendly and in many cases (mine... More

This is a locally owned business. Tammy, aka Fredie, and daughter Laura were both there and made our visit special. Laura greeted us and got us seated in the tiny restaurant, where there are 6 low counter seats and 6 high counter seats. She took our order and got us drinks to wait for the freshly cooked seafood. After we... More

Returning to our hotel from Peggy's Cove, we searched good fish and chips in the area. Fredie's came up in every search and it was on our way so we decided to try it out. Restaurant is small but quaint and you instantly feel welcomed like walking into someone's home. Both ladies working were incredibly kind and warm. We ordered... More

I went to this restaurant today with a good friend. He ordered 2 pc fish and chips and I ordered the lobster roll. I shared a few bites of the fish, which I found to be excellent. It had a nice light batter and was very crispy and tasty. The lobster roll was good, lots of lobster filling, but I... More

Dear Phil; Thank you so much for the visit the other day! I truly enjoyed our conversation. I'm glad you enjoyed our Fish and were happy with the amount of lobster in your lobster roll. You gave us a lot to think about... using a different type of bun might be something we could experiment with. Your suggestion is much... More

In Halifax for a few days and wanted to pick up a quick meal after a long drive back from Cape Breton. Stopped in at Fredies and was not disappointed. Nice fish, light batter and still hot when I got them home. Great classic Fish 'n Chips!

There are two places I go in Canada for fish & chips (and clams!). Fredies is my #1. Every time I go home to visit, my family and friends know that we will be making a trip to Fredies. Food is fantastic, portions are large, prices are good, and the staff are lovely. You simply have to make the trip... More

Fast & fresh in a Very Casual setting. Great on a nice day when you can sit outside as seating is very limited. Excellent Fish & Clams with great fries
