This was our first visit and they didn't disappoint! We had the fish and chips, it was awesome, the fish was perfectly crispy and not soggy at all. The service was great and we appreciated the owner checking in on us. The only downfall is the size of the eating space, we would prefer a table but this wouldn't affect... More

This place is the best fish in town and the nicest people serving you. Period. The Fonz (Henry Winkler) even loves it there and they have a picture of him when he came to town.

My wife, son and I went to Fredies and absolutely loved it! The fish was great with a very nice light batter and the chips were fresh cut and fried to perfection. Service was awesome and the price was just right! We will definitely visit Fredies again!

We live closer to, and have frequented, another, widely known and respected seafood facility in Dartmouth. My first visit to Fredies Fantastic Fishhouse was an absolute delight, both for the warm, friendly service and the "Fantastic" food. This restaurant has won awards and appeared on the Marilyn Dennis show, and for good reason. Do yourself a favour and try the... More

I love coming here for their food... but more importantly, their customer service! Everyone is extremely friendly, and I love the atmosphere. My boyfriend and I ususally share the sampler, and they will give you two smaller pieces of fish instead of the 1 (if you get the sampler for 1 person), that way you can share! I will keep... More

We thought it was strange that one of the best restaurants was not in the city center, but we drove all the way here for lunch. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The fish and chips and the seafood chowder was simply amazing. Everyone working there was so extremely friendly, I have never felt so at home. The staff... More

The best Fish and Chips, Clams were excellent too. The owner/cook so friendly and welcoming. Not a big place but who cares when you get quality seafood,it would be worth the wait.
