My favourite fish & chip shop in Canada!

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... read 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

This review is sort of recent experience, and about all my experiences! I started going to Freddy's when they opened close to my home in Clayton Park. As a East Coaster, sometimes you need a good fish dinner! Freddy's is the place to go for it! To begin, the prices are great! $9.99 for a 2 piece fish and chips.... More

If our family has a craving for fish and chips we always go to fantastic Freddie's. The fish is lightly battered and delicious and the staff is nice and friendly. We always do takeout.

This is one of our very favourite spots for seafood. Whatever seafood choice you might make, it is all uniformly delicious. I am a huge fan of the fish burgers and they are simply done to perfection each time I order. The chowder is great and the clams are fresh and largish. This spot is a real find not too... More

Fredies is the best fish and chip restaurant in Halifax! I usually order the 1pc fish and chip but upgrade my fries to the incredible "Newfie fries" (fries, dressing and gravy, which are to die for!) I also really enjoy the fish burger, the fish I love in between a fresh bun topped with cheese and tartar sauce, yum! Fredies... More

We've eaten here a few times, although we preferred the Tantallon location, and the food has always been good however our last visit was a big disappointment. Hopefully it was just a bad evening. Firstly they were out of clams so said they were offering an extra piece of fish plus 2 extra scallops on the sampler so we ordered... More

Dear 4states; I am truly sorry you were dissatisfied with your recent visit.
