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.

Following a devastating fire, Fred's Hickory Inn has recently reopened in its original location. The new building closely resembles the pre-fire original, so long-time patrons will feel right at home. The food is good, the proportions generous and the service is warm and friendly.

Outstanding place for lunch or dinner. Atmosphere is great and the new design of the building lends itself to a great dining experience.

Great restaurant with great tasting food. Has traditional bar B-Q, steaks and pasta. This was our first visit after they reopened after fire. Ozarks restaurant with country feel and great service in log building.

Great steaks, we had a nice dinner. The interior is very nice and the staff was great. We were seated right away, the spinach artichoke dip was really tasty. I had the smoked sirloin and it was awesome. I dont normally like smoked meats but it was just enough. The portions were HUGE, we took enough for a second meal... More

Don't miss this place old style midwestern steak house with a smoker and pasta chef. I had the smoked sirloin, it looks like prime rib but tastes much better.

Recently celebrated my birthday there with friends. Staff was very accommodating in providing a seating area for 12 people. They accommodated separate checks...the wait staff very attentive. Wife and I split the smoked sirloin and staff again accommodated this. Great atmosphere at this Bentonville landmark whether you want more formal or less formal. They have a great outdoor seating area... More

We have been back 3 times now since the restaurant reopened and it still has issues. Ate there last week and ordered the hamburger with fried potatoes. They used to have great fried potatoes with onion & bacon that were crispy. I received some sort of potato cubes that were mushy, absent any hint of bacon, and heavily salted. They... More

We had planned on stopping here for lunch but got busy with other things and before we knew it we were past the lunch hour. So we stopped for dinner. We didn't have a reservation but they seated us right away. I had the grilled chicken with sweet potato purée and he had the "Fred's steak" I think it was... More
