“Going Downhill - Great Food, Poor Service - Not worth the wait”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Reviewed this location in December and have been back on several occasions under the new management. Primarily what we are seeing is a decline in service over time. My first clue should have been the help wanted sign tacked to the door when we arrived. Overall, there is a lack of management/ownership oversight. Tonight there were two servers to handle the bar and seating area. My guess is that there was one cook in the kitchen. During the time we were there I saw two tables get up and leave before receiving their food. The server still put the food where they had been sitting and there it sat. The food was still sitting there when we left. There was not a clean table for new arrivals to sit at and there was no effort to clean the tables where people had left. Very disappointing because we loved this place; however, the "help wanted" sign tells me that there are problems. I am afraid this may have been our last visit here because there are to many other choices in the area. The food is consistently good and plentiful. The problem is the lack of service and management/ownership oversite. At this point, if you decide to eat here, be prepared for good food, a long wait, and no follow-up while you wait or after you receive your food because there is not enough help. Very disappointing...If there is a next time, it will be carry out...

“Great Neighborhood Bar and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

We have been coming to Freddy T's for over 20-years (various owners), primarily because my wife loves their Tator-Tots. The have a great variety of food and the newer owners have added smoked meats to the menu from the smoker out front of the restaurant. I have not had bad food here; although, the negative is when they are busy service is very slooooooow. They do bands and Karaoke; both of which I try my best to stay clear of. The bands tend to play at a volume that is to loud for a sports bar, eliminating any hope for conversation. I will not address Karaoke. As for the bands, it puts fannies in the chairs, which keeps the doors open. For the most part, the bands start at 8pm so I make it point to come early and leave quickly when they start up. At that point they become more of a bar and the service gets slower. Overall, it is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is great, the drinks are reasonably priced with generous pours, and the place is clean. If you like loud bands, come early, and stay late. If not, come early and leave early.

“A true local sports bar and grill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2010

The Food is OK, typical bar food. My 12 yr old boy enjoys going there and having dinner (just the guys). Neighbors meet here for beers, dinner specials are a great value. I like the burger, wings and the Filet. Even in horrible weather they are open, even in bad weather they will have a least a handful of folks at the bar. The entire city is Non-smoking, OK by me. They have outdoor smoking area seating.

“Just a bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2009

Nothing fancy. Delicious bar food. Prices are decent. Friendly service. Lots of TVs to watch games on. On Sundays in the fall it becomes a Packer bar. Lots of fun times here!
