Well oiled machine!

Stopped in for breakfast on the way to Napa Valley! Small joint that is busy but great! With a large menu and plenty to choose from this place turns out quality dishes to those who frequent it!

I stopped in Sausalito for a brief visit, and I wanted to eat at one of the best TA rated restaurants for lunch. I was not disappointed. I had an excellent hamburger, and the sweet potato fries were amazing. The space is a bit cramped, but it adds to the character of the restaurant.

We found this restaurant through TA, and were not disappointed! We came at brunch time, during the week - it was not too crowded, and we were seated right away. The staff were very warm and friendly. We had delicious dishes: eggs benedict w/avocado, a Greek egg scramble, potatoes, hash browns, and, best of all, a ricotta pancake...awesome! Everything was... More

Okay - once again we were looking at the portions & decided to get 3 meals for the 4 of us (& I have said it before but I will say it again - we CAN EAT) We shared eggs, an omlette & the french toast. The hash browns were amazing - & the portions just ridiculously huge. All was... More

What a wonderful little place. I had a salad with Turkey which was good and my wife ordered a Ricotta pancake which was outstanding. The service was terrific - enjoy!

We went into the restaurant when it was quite busy, and wanted to eat inside, although there were tables outdoors. The waiter was very attentive and brought us out coffee while we waited. We were evenly divided between the Eggs and hashbrowns with hollandaise sauce and the breakfast with the touted bacon. I loved the seasoned and meaty but fully... More

Ambiance and great food. Right on street near harbor and downtown. Pancakes are unbelievable. Service a little slow, but worth the wait.

Fred's is anything BUT a well-kept secret - at least among locals. The menu has a somewhat unconventional look and read to it, but rest assured, everything is there, perhaps just under a slightly different name. Our breakfasts had a somewhat unconventional look to and taste to them. NOT a negative by any means - just not the cookie-cutter food... More

Recently had a chance to re-visit Fred's, an old favorite of mine when I lived nearby in the late 70's. The place is brighter and fresher than I remember, but the vibe and the value are unchanged. Generous portions and attentive service with a laid back, communal feel, A don't miss.
