The service was great! The food was delicious. It was very busy, but the wait staff did a great job. Hush puppies are so good. We would definitely go back.

There were six of us so we had almost everything on the menu. The catfish was golden brown and American raised. The hush puppies were a big hit and we asked for more. I really liked the pickled green tomatoes. We all had to try the local favorite peanut butter pie and it became our new favorite. The staff made... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Batesville. Before Fred's moved to Batesville I would make the drive to Cord Charlotte. They fry their fish right so it's crispy not mushy. Their hushpuppies are light and crisp instead of small and rock hard like other fish houses. If you don't want fish they also have hamburgers, steak, chicken, seafood, and frog... More

Fred's is not a fancy place but their fried catfish is to die for! Just a good little place to eat. Down home service and dining.

There's nothing but greatness here. Personalized service, guidance on cooking menu items at home, and the best food ever. Brought back some of the sweeter memories I had of growing up in the area.

We stopped by Fred's between Batesville and Moorefield just before supper hour and they were quite busy already. Service was prompt, and we loved that the waitress brought us beans, slaw and hush puppies before we even placed our orders. That and sweet tea settled us right in. The catfish was good, but we thought the servings pretty small compared... More

Catfish is good, we come here all the time. This is the place to take out-of-town relatives for a traditional Arkansas meal with green tomato relish, beans, and hush puppies. Don't forget the raw onion!
