An excellent meal

We ate here one evening during our Austin visit. We both had the shrimp & crawfish etouffee. It was excellent - a very well seasoned sauce, and the shrimp were huge. The portion was large, as was the Caesar salad that I had. We had drinks, and one dessert. It's a bit pricey, but it's more... read more

We were looking for good seafood something above Red Lobster and somewhat below Eddie V's in Northwest Austin. Freda's, across from Lakeline Mall, has been serving quality seafood and Cajun cuisine for a decade. Why we didn't know about Freda's is beyond us because our food and the service were both terrific. Our crab cake appetizer rocked. So did the... More

I liked it enough to eat there twice, but I got the squirts after I ate there the 2nd time. I was looking for some local catfish but all they had was frozen. I went through the menu and most of the fish was frozen. The waiter didn't know what was frozen and what wasn't or how different dishes were... More

I was introduced to Freda's Seafood Grille earlier this week by a friend of more than a half a century. It proved to be a wonderful dining experience; the service was attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. The shrimp and crawfish etouffee was outstanding, perhaps some of the best etouffee I have ever had. Outside seating is available... More

We have dined at this establishment a few times and felt compelled to compliment the establishment for the great meals we experienced. Growing up on the coast and traveling the country, I have consumed more seafood than the average diner. Freda's is one of the best in the state, and for seafood it surpasses most of the seafood restaurants on... More

My husband and I ate dinner at Freda's Seafood Grill Friday evening, March 23, 2015. There was no crowd and no waiting, although the restaurant was well filled. We were seated at a quiet booth, which I appreciated since I have trouble hearing, and this meant my husband and I could enjoy chatting with each other. I ordered the Tilapia... More

Steak undercooked and pricey. Salmon fair. Happy hour til 7pm. Bar apps offer good value. Ask for booth in dining area. May give it another try. Manager needs social skills. Not proactive to offer apology for lack of service and omission of salads with meal order.

I hadn't been here for a couple of years but recently decided to try it again. I had always liked the main dishes but the sides were limited and too starchy for my taste. I was thrilled to find that they have updated their menu with new and interesting main dishes and added several excellent vegetable side dishes. There is... More

We met friends at Frieda's for drinks and dinner. The atmosphere is nice, however a bit dark. Our waiter was the absolute best and the best part of the evening. He was attentive but did not hover and had a great sense of humor. The food was fine. Not the best we've had but good. The prices are pretty high... More

Chose Freda's for a couples brunch date and it was wonderful! So many breakfast & brunch items to choose from as well as upscale items like the crab legs and prime rib! The service was wonderful too.
