While in Halifax in the Bayer Lake area, we just switched on our GPS for places to eat and one of the options was this restaurant. With a name like "Fredies Fantastic Fishhouse", you can't go wrong, you have to live up to the name. It's a tiny diner, and we got there during rush hour. It took some 45... More

This is my go to spot for fish 'n' chips. Good things come from small packages! As a Newfoundlander, the Newfie Fries are the real deal. Thick gravy, dressing made with summer savory and Eversweet Margarine . The good stuff! No matter what you choose from their menu, it won't be difficult to satisfy your local seafood craving.

We wanted to find a fish and chip restaurant in Halifax and turned to Tripadvisor to check out the possibilities. We were not disappointed. Our first visit was in August and went back two weeks later during my subsequent visit to the city. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious on the menu. The staff friendly and appreciated our business, and... More

A gal at work suggested that I check out Fredie's as she thought the fish & chips were the best in the city. Once I checked out the website I decided that I really wanted to try their chowder. This is a quaint little diner with seating inside as well as outside. The service was friendly and fast. I had... More

It's hard to get deep fried fish right and Fredies does it right. The batter is light and crisp and doesn't overwhelm the tender halibut contained within. I can also recommend the deep fried scallops and oysters. And also, the fries, particularly the sweet potato fries. Fredies is a small storefront restaurant. The venue is 1950's diner style, with stools... More

These have to be the BEST fish and chips I have had in Halifax. The fish is fresh with a light batter and the chips are homemade. The restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful. We will be back again.

A grand mother,mother,daughter operation, you're in good company. The food goes through a TLC ( tender loving care) procedure before it delivers to your table. The fish can't be any fresher than that. The batter is so light, it permits you to have a full taste of the fish. The lobster roll is awesome, no gimmick, no fillers, no complication,... More

Chips were great but the Fish is amazing, possibly the best I've tasted. The flavor and texture is spot on. The fried clams are also awesome. I was lucky to have their last batch. The eatery is very clean and the ladies were charming. Two thumbs up from Burlington, ON.
