Fred's was everything I would want in an East Coast diner. Fred's had wide array of food on the menu. I had to decide between a Gyro, Burger or a taco. My wife chose the Chicken Quesadilla and I had the deluxe Burger with cheddar. My Burger was very good and my wife's Quesadilla was mui bueno. What really inspired... More

I wasn't expecting much from Fred's diner but my mom was set on going here for dinner. This place has been around for at least 30 years; I think it used to be called Nollers. We went around 7:00 on a Friday night, and it was surprisingly empty; there were only a few filled tables. By 8:00, the restaurant started... More

To tell you the truth I was not to impressed with Fred's Beach Haven Diner. I wanted an omelette but the Eggospecials did not seemed inviting to eat. Many unusual combinations for breakfast. Regular omelette you had to build your own. Choice meat, or vegetable etc. I did order my favorite breakfast of Blueberry pancakes. Nothing exceptional here either. There... More

Friendly diner, perfect way to end your stay at LBI. Gets very crowded on Saturday mornings so be prepared to wait on line. But it moves quickly. Food is served promptly. Good eats at a good value,

Our breakfast was delicious and we can't complain about much here. The service was not 100 percent professional and tip-top, but they did attempt to cater to us when the thought occurred. Their coffee was weaker than what we're used to but it was manageable. The prices were more than what we're used to paying back home, but they we... More

Food is pretty good, service is great. If you have to eat at a diner Fred's is the place to go. Good for breakfast or an air conditioned lunch

Doesn't have the baked goods typical of a Jersey diner but has a large menu, good service, reasonable prices. Open seasonally for dinner. Open breakfast and lunch most of the year.

Wasn't too crowded as the season just began. Had the breakfast sandwich which was very good. Server forgot our side of bacon but apologized and returned with it immediately. Good food, reasonable prices, excellent value.

Recently went for breakfast. Food was decent but there are better options in the immediate area. Staff also seemed somewhat less than interested and perhaps a little pushy to move everyone along - and it was not crowded at all the day we went. We may try It again because we know others who rave about Fred's. We just were... More
