Fish Burgers to die for!

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... read 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

I spoke with my Daughter who would have taken your order that night and with Yvonne who would have been cooking your order. I can assure you they are so sad to know you were unhappy! Clams are extremely hard to get this time of year, and... More

As per the title. This is a no frills spot that would likely be fine to grab a quick dinner or take out. The fish is battered lightly, not too greasy and the haddock is fresh. The fries are good and plentiful so you will not go hungry with you order, :-) My parents discovered the place when it had... More

You could completely miss this place. The food was excellent. My friends had the fish and chips, I had the clams. The best I've had in a very long time!

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
