I loved the little cafe, they have a unique menu. I enjoyed my salad and my husband enjoyed his kobe burger. It is a very quaint cafe, my one complaint which required me to only give this cafe 4 stars, is that you have to ask for a key to get into the restaurant which is located outside the actual... More

I dined at Fredas this afternoon for lunch. The ambiance of the adorably small restraunt are perfect! The food is also unique and tasty. My only complaint is that the service was a little slow, although the waitress was friendly at ever table approach. I would like to try this place again and would recommend it.

I had a scallop / mushroom dish over pasta with a wine / cream and herb sauce. It was sooo good I felt like drinking the sauce. My wife had salmons stuffed with REAL lump crabmeat with grilled...

We enjoyed a nice family lunch here during vacation. The special soup that day blew us away -- Jamaican cream of carrot with crab -- and our kids loved their meals. Much better than standard kid menu fare. Our entrees were delish; the only criticism I'd offer is that the salads were not as fresh/local as they could have been.... More

We went here to celebrate our daughter's 25th birthday. The food was so good--from the ribs, lamb chops, swordfish, crab cakes, chicken parm to ahi tuna everyone loved their choices. The seafood bisque was also tasty and the stuffed pepper appetizer everyone raved! this is our third time here and we will definitely return. It's BOYB which is great. Agreed... More

We have had the pleasure of dining at Freda's for a number of years. Freda's offers a wonderful menu with special entrees offered each evening. I can honestly say that Freda's is one of the best restaurants in the Cape May area. Service is excellent.

The food was really tasty and place was casual. The barbecued pulled pork sandwich was excellent. The service was friendly and informative, will go back when I am in Cape May.

Have been dining in Cape May for over 10 years now. We decided to try something new. Went there for lunch. Seating is a little tight and there is no music playing so it is awkward because you can hear everyone's conversations. The food was amazing! We had 3 specials: Grilled Cheese (amazing), Basil Burger and Fiesta Chicken Salad. Great... More
