This past Friday my wife had her retirement happy hour at Freda's. We've eaten there before and it's always been good. For a Friday evening/night there were hardly any customers. They were out of Tito's vodka and many of the normal beers, ie: Shine Bock, Michelob Light, and a few others. We had a good server which saved the evening.... More

A friend suggested Freda's for lunch today, and I had to admit that I had never heard of it. I was not very hungry, so I ordered a bowl of seafood gumbo. My wife had the Salmon Florentine, friends had Blackened catfish and Pecan Tilapia. As an appetizer, we split an order of Fried Pickles. Drinks arrived very quickly as... More

I had the grilled red snapper (simple snapper), and my wife had the blackened red snapper with crawfish etouffee. We both added a side salad with the house dressing, which was excellent. Nice atmosphere, also. Maybe not quite up to par with seafood on the gulf coast at places like Galveston, but certainly fine for Central Texas. We enjoyed it,... More

Family Birthday and everyone enjoyed everything, especially the crabs and bottomless mimosas as well. Third time I've been all for brunch.

Three of us ate recently at Freda's Seafood. My Fried Softshell Crabs were amazing! There were four of them on the platter, nice and crispy and fresh, with 2 sides... $28. I've never rec'd more than 1-2 for that price at other places. Another person had the Salmon Stuffed with Crabmeat. It too was a generous portion, with 2 sides...... More

We were torn between Eddie V's and Freda's and decided on Freda's for the easier parking and lower prices. Our snapper with crab topping (Oscar) was delicious and perfectly cooked. The steak was too rare, so was sent back and our amazing server, Carlos, returned with a new steak perfectly cooked. This was our second dinner at Freda's, both were... More

We attended a family celebration at Freda's with a catered buffet in one of the rear rooms - over 55 people attended. Wait staff was very attentive. Starters included chips and the best spinach / artichoke dip - hot, creamy and fantastic, plus delicious Bruschetta topped with pesto, peperonata, cotija cheese & tomato. The main entree included a nice tossed... More

FIRST TIMER - I ordered Sea Bass and Caesar salad which was delicious! Pricey, but delicious. Then washed it down with white chocolate bread pudding. My meal was a healthy size and I didn't feel overly full after. Atmosphere has a business feel with a bar option. Service was on par and my water was never empty. I'd recommend it!

Happy hour food menu had good food selection and our sea bass tasted alright. The outside ambiance was comfortable and we could hear the piano player from inside. Unfortunately, we dined on an evening when there was only one waiter for the whole outside. He brought us the wrong dish, but did try to make up for it by taking... More
