Dear Valued Guest and Visitor; Thanks you so much for writing a review of us! We are sorry we couldn't accommodate your request for Halibut Fish and Chips... We served Fresh Haddock as it is plentiful and a local favorite. Halibut is not usually used for Fish and Chips in Nova Scotia although you can get great Halibut pan fried... More

Had the full sampler dish. 2 one piece fish and chips, 6 scallop's and a full order of clams. All was cooked well. Batter on the fish was just enough. Clams were great.

Thought we'd check this out, as it got such good TA reviews...not disappointed. It is an unassuming little place in what looks like a strip mall. There is limited indoor/counter seating, with most seats outside. Good thing it was a nice night! I had the chowder which came with a small warm roll and a piece of fish. The broth... More

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
