Surprising cafe

We just dropped in to this café because we were really hungry and is was the first place we found. After entering, we weren't real sure what the food would be like, but surprisingly it was very good and the price was very reasonable. We will definitely eat here again the next time we are in Butte.

If you like baby back ribs this is the place to get them in Butte. These ribs had more meat on them than any rib I've ever eaten anywhere and two people could easily share a half rack. They came with BQ sauce on them and if I had known I would have asked for the sauce on the side.... More

If you are looking for large portions of really okay to good food, this is your restaurant. If you are looking for lots of variety in food choices, this would not be a good place to go. I had trouble choosing, because there was nothing on the menu that appealed to me. I finally chose a cheeseburger and fries. None... More

Great salads, great onion rings, delicious fries and trendy neighborhood bar feel really made our dinner. As a family of four, there was something for all of us. I recommend what appears to be the house specialty: a kabob of some sort. I had the steak and it was phenomenal! As a matter of fact all the beef ordered at... More

Fred's is always busy and in the summer time the deck is packed. Huge variety of food on the menu and the portions are mighty big. Steaks are fabulous! Long tables for big groups or smaller round ones are available. Go early because there will be a wait if you're there at prime eating time.

I was in over the 4th of July weekend and has I had heard good things, I decided to stop for lunch before leaving town. The service was outstanding, from the moment I walked in the door everyone was friendly and helpful. The menu is packed with variety and everything sounded good. I was in the mood for BBQ, their...

We stopped for a bite to eat and this was excellent. The onion rings are super good as well as the shiskabobs. We ate on the deck and it was very nice.

The restaurant is in a great location, with an excellent dining atmosphere. The food is outstanding and they have several local brews available. The only issue I had is the parking is sparse, so you might end up parking a few blocks away to eat there.

This is not a fancy place, but god, we enjoyed this after a long drive. Juicy ribs, some good beers, ours kids loved their grilled chicken skewers and fries.

My girlfriend and I went to Fred's while we were in Butte. I have eaten here before and find the food excellent. I had the chicken strips with fries. Their chicken strips are Not breaded but battered and are so tender. The fries are great also. My gf had a salad with a kabob of grilled chicken pieces. She said... More
