Over the last 8 years Bentonville, AR has changed quite a bit. What was once a sleepy, dusty small town with casual BBQ and beer on offer has become a center of "Farm to Table" and "Artisanal Avocado Toast," etc. Fred's has changed, too, but...More

When I moved to Bentonville 3 years ago, Fred’s was being remodeled after a fire. It’s nestled snuggly up on a hill and is surrounded by trees. It looks like an old Southern, classy restaurant and the inside carries that ambiance through, complete with a...More

This place was really expensive for what it was. If I remember correctly the 7 oz sirloin was around $19 and 11oz for $25. For sirloin that pretty high. The sirloin is smoked. They cut it very thin to get it smoked all the way...More

Arrived on a Saturday evening around 5:30 pm. Staff was friendly, but beyond that we were very disappointed on so many fronts. First, the spinach-artichoke appetizer dip was "average", nothing more. The real disappointment was waiting 50 minutes for our entree after we ordered. The...More
