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.

My husband loves good fish and chips and he certainly gave these a top rating. On the other hand I do not like fried fish in any form and had read that the chowder was good. Granted there is lots of fish in the chowder but it is absolutely flavorless and thin with a generic roll on the side. Perhaps... More

This is a small place, with only a few stools inside, and tables outside. They only do fried seafood, but they do it well. Mom loved the scallops, the fish and chips were good, nice and crispy.

I had read online that this place was rated number two by Coast magazine for the best fried clams in Halifax. I was not disappointed. I ordered a large order with French fries and it was so large the clams and fries had to come on separate plates. They were golden brown and delicious. Many ask how to eat fried... More
