I love Fred's and have ever since I moved to NWA 16 years ago. I was sad when it burned up, but they have rebuilt it. The food is as good as it ever was. Fred's steak is very tasty. I also enjoy the French dip. Definitely a must visit place!

Atmosphete, pork chop, sautéed spinach salad and bread is very good. Steamed broccoli not so good and wine list could be better. Waitress, Matilda , was also awsome. I will ask for her next trip.

Freds is sort of quaint, yet has a bar and grill feeling to it. You could have people of all sorts walking through when dining here. They had very tasty meatballs to go with the marinara sauce and spaghetti. Everyone in my party had nothing but good things to say about their meal. Our waitress only checked on us once,... More

Went to Fred's for a business dinner, and the boss says this is a Bentonville favorite spot. Very nice atmosphere, and the wait staff was very friendly and made suggestions to our group. We were all very pleased with our dinner choices.

We visited friends who live near Fred's Hickory Inn just this past weekend. They were very knowledgeable on the history of the place, so we were anxious to try it. So glad we did! The restaurant building itself is quite the site to see. We were a party of 8. We were seated quickly and in tune with our reservation... More

Fred's was rebuilt after a fire a couple of years ago. However, they maintained the same footprint and amenities as the original. Food is still excellent and reasonably priced. Parking is ample. they still mantain the small town, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended
