I was just here Sunday morning. I was heading out of town back to sacramento and I wanted a good breakfast. I looked up some places in Sausalito figuring it would be cute and quiet on a Sunday morning. I picked Freds because the reviews mentioned deep fried french toast. I sat outside and they were quick to put the... More

Our very entertaining server suggested we have the "bottomless" bitter mimosa - grapefruit juice with sparkling wine...good suggestion. The breakfast was as good as we were expecting, and a very enjoyable experience all round. Highly recommended for breakfast/brunch.

My son and I had breakfast at Fred's. Great vibe and ambiance, and the food was very good, but the service was I thought average. Staff seemed focused on the next thing they had to do and impatient to get you in and out. The vibe and food fit the profile of a great local breakfast spot, but the service... More

I wasn't a fan of communal tables, but given the size of this restaurant, it is a necessity. However, I had the pleasure of sitting with three, local, older gentlemen who made the whole experience great. My daughters had the 1) kids pancakes and 2) the Fat Fred French Toast. I had the Maugerite Omelet. All three were excellent tasting,... More

Amazing deep fried french toast. Friendly service. 20 minute walk from ferry pier. Worth the boat trip from San Francisco.

Friendly service, so-so food although the spuds are great. Millionaire bacon looked interesting. 5 slides per pound baked for hours in brown sugar.

We drove over to Sausalito as we were in town for vacation. A quick check of tripadvisor let us know that we should stop at Fred's for lunch. We got a table out front and it was a nice December day to eat outside. The waiter was very friendly and did recommend the chicken sandwich. He was so right. It... More

And then some. The staff is friendly. The atmosphere is exactly what you'd expect of a bay side breakfast joint. The food was delicious. The black stone Benedict was amazing. I highly suggest ordering an extra side of bacon.

This place was rated #1 in Sausalito, so we dropped in. But, not sure what all of the fuss was about. We were there for lunch. Seemed like a regular diner to me. Very casual. Food was good, but not outstanding. Maybe breakfasts are better? Service was good, but not outstanding. Bathroom was dirty. Not sure I see a compelling... More

Great, fast service, our coffee was never less then half full. Very quick with the food and big portions! We sat at the bar and could watch the cooks work their magic. One complaint I would make was the cooks could be a little cleaner. They were wearing rubber gloves but I never saw them change them the whole time... More
