Great seafood, beautiful restaurant

Great food, excellent service, reasonably priced. We wanted a restaurant close to our hotel so that we wouldn't have to venture far. We could have gone to that chain restaurant that serves unlimited breaksticks and salad Italian cuisine, but chose this family owned and run seafood house. It was... read more

We're lucky to have such a great restaurant here in NW Austin. The meals and wines are always excellent. All of the steaks I've had here are tender, and they don't over salt them like most of the steakhouses around here do.

I work at the hotel next door and had stopped in for a moment with my fiancé on our anniversary. We had never been to Freda's and decided that since it was right next door we would walk over and try it out. Looking at the prices the appetizers were a bit pricey (10 a piece) but it was a... More

Took my wife for her birthday lunch. What a disappointment. They only had buffet available at the noon hour. Only two offerings were worthwhile. The prime rib and the gumbo were fine. The fried shrimp tasted like frozen not freshly breaded, the snow crab was over cooked, the fish was barely edible. Maybe if we were to try ordering off... More

The portions were generous, and the food was tasty. I tried the gumbo and etouffee. My wife enjoyed her salmon and the cornbread muffins that were brought to the table. My only complaint was that the service was very good and some areas and needed improvement in others. Our waiter was friendly and we did receive a visit from the... More

I'm surprised that I had never heard about this restaurant. Apparently it has been around for a long time. The crab stuffed Salmon was delicious. This had to be the fastest I've ever received my meal and appetizer in a fine restaurant. The servers were very friendly. When I asked my wife if she wanted to share meals, our ritual... More

My wife had been craving seafood & Freda's definitely satisfied it! We stopped in & was seated immediately. Our server Matt was personable, knowledgeable, & simply great. Being our first time here, we decided to start by sharing a bowl of gumbo, which was accompanied by homemade honey butter & corn muffins They were delicious! My wife ordered the catfish... More

Nestled next to the Holiday Inn near the intersection of 620 and 183, Freda's is a fabulous find for the lover of fine dining at affordable prices. Our group arrived late in the evening after bypassing a chain that offered free breadsticks. What a great choice--expansive outdoor dining area and a charming main room with comfy booths and granite table... More

I went here on a Friday night with my work gals at 6pm. Got in with no wait. Great set up inside - inviting and cozy. The little pre-meal cornbread is simply delish. We had the spinach artichoke dip which was very good. I had the bourbon street pasta which was very very good and huge portion. This was my... More
