Only open Saturday, 8-12. Music starts about 9 and goes on until 12 or later. No food, just drinks, Bloody Mary;s, Virgin Mary;s and more. It is about 15 min. from Eunice and easy to find, well marked as it is the only place to go in Mamou

We arrived early, just after 8, thinking that's when the music started, but the band started playing at 9. It was a good thing we arrived early, because we had a chance to chat with the friendly people there, including staff and regulars. I had planned to stay only a short while, then pick up some boudin at T-Boy's on... More

We just started going to Fred's Lounge about 4 or 5 years ago and it gets to be more fun every time we go. We go at least once or twice a year with a group of 6 or 8 and have a blast. If you like good Cajun music, cold beer or a good mixed drink and friendly people... More

I have heard of freds but I was a bit concerned it may not be too "family oriented" so I normally listen to the Saturday morning jam at Savoy's in Eunice. This time I tried Freds. It was everything you read in these reviews. The live music is good but it is crowded and difficult for this mobility impaired guy... More

This Fun Filled 4hrs or so are also on a Live Broascast on AM radio. They are celebrating their 70th birthday this year. Get to Fred's, get... More

We stopped in here as part of our bike ride through southern Louisiana - Cycle Zydeco. The organizers told us in advance, "You want to get an early start on Saturday morning so you can get to Fred's Lounge before it gets too crowded." I thought, what's the big deal about a bar. I'll tell you what the big deal... More

We went to Fred's because of the history and it did not disappoint! The music was wonderful and the people so very friendly. It was a true Acadian experience!

We were there at 7:30 as per instructions...didn't open until 9. We went across the street to the Krazy Cajun Cafe and had breakfast. Went back to Fred's at 9 and really enjoyed the French Cajun music! Very crowded, but still room for dancing! An adventure at 9 am on a Saturday morning!

My wife and I arrived at 10 am on a Saturday morning. The bar was not as crowded as I expected it to be based on what I read before going. The band was very lively, as were the bar patrons. The crowd was a mix of local Cajuns and tourists. The beers were pretty reasonably priced while mixed drinks... More
