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.

One of the staff at the REI store recommended this restaurant and we are glad he did. We were looking for a nice local seafood place with atmosphere, and this was the place. Very reasonable for an upper scale place. Dustin did a great job for us, and the food was excellent.

Another delicious meal at Freda's tonight. I was tempted to stray from my favorite dish, the Bourbon Street Pasta, but couldn't resist sticking with it- creamy, spicy, full of seafood and sausage and more than enough so that I can enjoy it again for lunch tomorrow. My husband's filet cut like butter and was "excellent". We splurged on the White... More

Portion sizes need some work, but food was tasty. Little high on the $$, but close to HIE next door, so is walkable
