Best onion rings ever!

Food is excellent. Love the onion rings! Lot's of choices. I enjoy sitting outside weather permitting. Only thing I didn't care for - the accoustics. Inside restaurant can be loud.

We had read some of the reviews for this restaurant and noticed some of the reviews were negative. We decided to see for ourselves and glad we went to this restaurant. I ordered the Fred's Special which was linguini with marinara sauce, two skewers, one with fresh vegetables and one with steak cubes cooked perfectly. This meal was $12.95 which... More

The place has great chicken strips, burger, steak sandwiches, and fries. I don't think the expensive dinners are worth the price, but the casual food is great!

Attentive (but not overbearing) service along with really good-sized portions of food that were reasonable for the prices!!! Had the cheeseburger with pepper jack cheese. Was not pleased with the extra $2.25 charge for sauteed onions.......but all-in-all, four circles and a good recommendation for this place!!

I love Fred's, my favorite place to eat in Butte. Cesar's salad is the best I have ever had. This is a great place if you are a low-carb eater. Shrimp is large and wild caught.

My family and I make Fred's one of the must-go places whenever we travel to Butte. Sometimes we'll travel to Butte just to go to Fred's! Their food is delicious, and their service has always been great as well. The atmosphere is cool and casual, as well as family-friendly. Definitely a gem in this old mining town.

This is one of those accidental finds one stumbles into on road trips. A typical grill and steak house with extra friendly service and accommodating wait staff. They even made half portions of their sumptous entré to suit our smaller appetite. The sweet potato fry was fabulous as was the recommended ice cream. They have a good selection of beers... More

The wife and I stopped in to see what the place was like. The place was busy so we did have to wait a bit. However, once we got the menu and saw the cost of the items we decided that this was not the place for us.

We were there the weekend of the Folk Festival in July 2014. The service was the worst I've ever had, the waitress avoided us, the salad (which was wilted) came out 40 minutes after ordering and the main meal another 20 after that. Their excuse was a small grill (lots of ways to take care of that problem). When we... More
