Waitress seemed like we were an inconvenience. Bartender was friendly. Food decent and lots of it. Very good chips and salsa. Fun atmosphere.

From the moment we walked to the bar, the drinks, the chips, the service, the food. Very rustic, but somehow high quality, great tasting and a great vibe. Bartender is magnificent. That man can multi-task and not miss a beat. Great experience. Thank you.

Fred's is really just another Mexican restaurant, but it has terrific views of the ocean as it sits on the second floor of a building overlooking the Pacific Coast Highway. The service was great at the bar and everyone seemed to be having fun.

There is parking right in front of the restaurant if you are lucky enough to find one. If not then you continue down the road one block turn right and there will be public parking that Fred's will validate for.
