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

This restraunt was closed last year after a fire. Since reopening they tried to change to a more high scale place. They have leaned that the Fred's people liked the way it was before. They are in the process making changes to be the old Fred's. I look forward to this. The people who work their are great. The food... More

I'm not kidding when I say the meat was bigger than my face. The food and atmosphere was good, we had a group of around 12 and it was comfortable and enjoyable. The salad was also delicious with an interesting flavored light ranch dressing. With a rustic feel, it's good for family birthdays and gatherings, business meals, and fancy dates.... More

Fred's is a locals favorite! The atmosphere here is fantastic. Perfect place for a nice dinner. Personal favorite is the Smoked Sirloin. Steaks and smoked meats are their specialty.
