Fredie's is an unpretentious little place on a side street. There's a lot of bad fried fish around, so I'm glad to give Fredie a thumbs up!

Visited the restaurant after hearing about it from family. Was impressed with both the food and the service. Will definitely return when looking for a good fast meal. If going, be aware that seating is very limited and you may have to wait a bit, but it will be well worth it.

There isn't a lot of room to eat inside but the staff were very quick to accommodate our family. Its in a plaza and out of the way but easy enough to find and very busy. Looks like they're expanding soon though! Good luck!

We came here for lunch. I'm not a fan of battered fish so we didn't try it. However, their seafood chowder was delicious. So full of seafood. I could see the lobster chunks and mine even had a claw in it. Yum yum. My husband thought the chowder was too thin. I enjoyed it very much even if it wasn't... More

I have had the fish and chips twice and both times they have been very good. Their is very little room to eat inside and they are very busy during lunch time.

We visited Fredies after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor - I got the three piece fish and chips, and my fiancé got the lobster roll and fries. He couldn't believe the amount of lobster on the lobster roll - he decided he didn't need to go for a lobster dinner during our vacation in Halifax, because he had so... More

Fredie's was our first meal in Halifax. What a great initiation! The staff were simply lovely and the food was delish. I had the lobster roll and chowder. Lobster was fresh and ample, bun was fresh and didn't overpower the lobster. Chowder was on the soupier (as opposed to goop-ier) side, which is my preference. Lots of white fish, scallops... More
