We had the nicest waitress and she suggested some food. We came for a drink and appetizers. The buffalo chicken dip was so good- I would come back just for that!! Other snacks were good. Glad they have outdoor seating. Fred's has been here forever.....the...staff in the liquor store are quite expert at many types of alcohol and will always be honest. They have so many things and we love coming here to get some special "booze" for our beach trips. Will always come here for "browsing" and we leave with great choices. A MUST if you come to Stone HarborMore

I ventured into Fred's based upon the high review rating. I liked sitting outside, it was a beautiful day. It was downhill from there. My well done hamburger - I requested medium rare - lacked flavor. Ironically, the bacon could have been cooked more. And,...the accompanying potato chips were stale.More

I had not been to Fred's in year's but decided to take the family for dinner. The majority had burgers and all commented on how good they were. Service was attentive and fast. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Thumbs up!

I finally got around to getting to Fred's. My grown stepchildren used to go here as children. They are all now grown and gone. What a surprise. A perfect place for order out or dine in with quick pleasant service and top notch food. This...is one of the best cheesesteaks I've ever had in New Jersey and really challenges the best of Philadelphia. We settled for a french onion cheese steak and sweet potato fries. Simple fare but done beautifully and delicious. I was told 15 minutes and they were ready right on time. I'd say this is the best place for a quick lunch or snack dinner in Stone harbor. And, it was low in price! I wish I had tried them sooner. As an aside, there are three stores in one - a liquor store, a bar, and the restaurant and kitchen. This is a great place to know about. Give them a try and I'm sure you'll want to go back.More

My wife and I shared the Asian salad and it was large enough for two and very good. We each ordered the french onion cheese steak sandwich with seasoned fries. It was excellent along with the fries. Plenty of meat and the roll was good....We both were able to eat only half the sandwich.More

Ordered out here as we were late heading out to dinner. Stop by to pick up food and were incredibly amazed by the updating and renovations of what used to be a “town bar”. No more!! The restaurant was incredible to look at, very warm...and engaging and welcoming. Will definitely eat in next time. As for the food, it was wonderful. From cheeseburgers to chicken Parm sandwiches to nachos to salad, the menu is wonderful and affordable, especially in the Stone Harbor area. Enjoy.More

Grabbed a late lunch to go and it was one of the best cheesesteaks I have ever had. (get the one named "French Onion Cheesesteak"). Combined with their onion rings and it was a winner. Will definitely do it again when back in Avalon.

Fred’s has great pub fare. Freshly prepared and always consistent. Great for burgers, salads, nachos and beers. Outdoor dining in the front and outdoor beer garden in the back. Family friendly— easy option for tavern food.

Yes, children are welcome. They don't have a kids menu, but they are accommodating. They can adjust the appetizers or entree to fit your child's food choice.
