Battling a cold so Freds is always my choice for some home remedies to fix what ails me. The tomato soup is my favorite. Add a grilled cheese and I'm feeling much better!

If you haven't tried the tomato soup , you must! Get a grilled cheese sandwich with it if you are a dipper. Fred's has great breakfast and lunches. The price is right and the portions are take home size. Enjoy your meal :)

I like Fred's! If you like diners (and New Jersey has a load of them), you'll probably like Fred's Diner. I think it's the only diner-style restaurant on the whole island, with counter, booth and table seating. The menu is extensive, the food is great and the service is excellent.

The food and service was excellent and at a very reasonable price. My wife had the hot open roast beef and I had the meatloaf special which was amazing. Both platters were around $11.00 which included soup or salad. I would recommend this place for a quick bite to eat at a reasonable cost.

Stopped here on Saturday afternoon. Service was fast and very nice. The clam chowder was amazing! I don't normally like Manhattan clam chowder, but after tasting my friends, I ordered my own! Fried clams were delicious too. Will come again!

Every year I come to LBI for vacation and meet a friend at Fred's for breakfast. It's big, clean, and has a basic breakfast menu. Service is good and since it's not crowded when we go, we always have a leisurely breakfast. Last year I thought the feta filling for the omelette was a little skimpy but overlooked it. This...

nice diner atmosphere. Service was a bit slow and hostess grumpy but food was good. My daughter had cinnamon french toast and it was really good.

The food did not taste fresh to me- pleasant atmosphere, but I didn't care for my breakfast. I didn't feel it was worth the price.

I went here twice for morning coffee and, not wanting to have the waits at more famous breakfast places. The staff was nice both times, efficient and friendly. It was quick in and out. The diner is very clean.
