Home cooking that will knock your socks off

Want some delicacies? The food is outstanding and prices are very good. Can't wait to return. Entertaining wall décor. The setting is so homey, woodsey, and relaxing. Our small group of friends gathered and had an exciting time here. Service is great.

This is a brief update that Freds still remains closed. I hope to see them open soon. As of Jan 1 2015 they are still working on it. The steaks and BBQ are great, side dishes always tasty and warm friendly service.

Fred's is a treasure, a local institution. Always a genuine greeting at the door, all the menu is good, service very good, servers are attentive and personable. A recent fire in the attic above the kitchen has closed the restaurant for repairs. Hopefully it will be repaired and ready for the holiday season very soon.

I was disappointed in my recent meal at Fred's. It started with a salad that was mostly iceberg lettuce with two thin tomato slices. Most of the dressings were creamy and the waitress told me she would attempt to find a vinaigrette for me, as if this was a favor. I ordered the ribs which came with a baked potato.... More

A friend suggested Fred's & are we glad! Clay was our server...nice young man & attentive. My husband had the KS strip & I the ribeye. Both cooked perfectly per request. We ordered extra mushrooms...they were delish! Just be ready for the iceberg & tomato dinner salad...hadn't seen one of those in a while! Neat atmosphere, relaxing, great location.

You can't really even see it from the road. But it's like discovering a hideway when you pull up. I think they said they've been there 47 years. My wife got a filet that you could cut with a fork. I had smoked ribeye, they say's it's their version of prime rib. They have a super cheesecake for desert.

The hostess tonight tall blonde, had to be one of the worst ever. Rude with attitude. Fortunately there was a waiter that took charge of the situation and made things right. The waitress started off well but then we didn't see her for at least 25 min. What the heck break time while you have a table. Weird. The food... More

My wife had "Fred's steak" & I had a mixed grill which included beef, pork, ribs and sausage with beans & coleslaw. The steak was superb and two could easily have dined on the amount of excellent food on my plate. With excellent service to boot, we had no complaints.

We went with another couple to this restaurant. The atmosphere is very pleasant. We ordered an Italian dish and some of their smoked meats. We had salads and baked potatoes which were absolutely delicious as was the food. Nice quantity and the food was fresh. Service was good as well. Pricing is good and competitive with other restaurants in this... More
