I guess because there is just about no good food in this area. The catfish we had was thin and had lots of dark strips in it that should be cut out of fish before cooking. Tasteless except for salt. Fried but not browned. Very...More

The owner is the rudest person around. I wouldn't step foot in this place. I'd starve before I ever ate here. Tried to get a table for 15 people. The owner used the f-bomb for no reason. Went somewhere else and was treated very kind...More

Pretty setting for this fish place. The food was ok. My husband had walleye and it wasn’t the best. My fish was cool not cooked well. It is a nice place. We should give it another chance

Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed every bit of it. The desserts should not be missed. We stopped as we were heading out to buy a few to take home with us!

Eating at Fred"s each year we come to the lake is a family tradition. The fried catfish here is just excellent. The grilled fish is also great. The only thing I would advise for tourists to know is that during the week they close at...More

If you're a big fish eater, get the all you can eat fish dinner. There catfish and walleye is exceptional. It takes me awhile to get it to your table. But it is fresh out of the fryer. I would highly recommend it, like I...More
