Casual, Relaxed atmosphere with friendly service. Grilled fish is excellent as is the fried. Good burgers too. All the trimmings like hush puppies pickled tomatoes & brown beans. Can you say YUM?!

Excellent food - the hush puppies are the best. The service is awesome - esp if they know you! Usually go with my friend who lives in Batesville and her family loves it!

Best catfish in the area, and their prime rib is very good as well. Reasonably priced, courteous waitresses, and definitely worth the drive.

A casual dining restaurant with the best fried catfish in town, not to mention friendly service. Be sure to ask for the pickled green tomatoes and pinto beans with your order.

My family’s “go to” fish place in Batesville. We usually place a “to go” order. In addition to the fish and sides, we love their pinto beans!

The fish is great at this restaurant, friendly waitress, and fair prices. What makes it even better are the free appetizers: great hush puppies, good coleslaw, and absolutely delicious pickled green tomatoes.

My wife and I frequent Fred's for lunch because we enjoy their catfish. We usually order a small fish dinner. That along with the pinto beans and green tomato pickles provided with the meal fills us up. Good value for the money.
