During a recent stay at the beach, I chose to try this place that I had heard so much about. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, they were only doing carry-out but that was OK. I ordered mushroom ravioli on a whim, and I will say...it was absolutely delicious! It came with a nice size side salad with their house dressing and a large breadstick. It was very plentiful and properly packaged to transport it back to the rental house. I am hoping that next time I visit, I will be able to enjoy the inside of this personable Italian American restaurant!More

Even with the Virus going on Freddie’s is still just as good as ever! I had the cheese ravioli and wife had chicken parm and both was excellent! And even bought 32oz of Barbs salad dressing to take home!

We ordered take out to take back to the house we were renting. Very cute inside the restaurant thought. Our dinner was incredible! Chicken parm for my daughter and chicken florentine for me. Enough for leftovers the next day.

All-around fantastic dinner. Cozy and quaint atmosphere. We were there about 5 pm and on a weeknight, so maybe that's why we were able to get a table because the restaurant filled quickly. There's a reason for that: the food is delicious, and the service...is superb. (Sorry, I can't remember our waitress' name, but she's fantastic - blond long braid) We are Rhode Islanders, and RI has many excellent Italian restaurants, so I must say that we wouldn't normally go to an Italian place in NC. However, we read the reviews, and we wholeheartedly agree with the five-stars! Mangia bene!More

Have been here several times. This is one of the most over rated piece of crap places on the beach. I cannot see unless the city inspectors eat here for free how in the hell it stays open. The only other place around thats worse.nastier.and...more disgusting is called Caseys Buffet. Now thats really one for the books?????More

We went on New Year's Eve and really enjoyed the dinner. Freddie's is a very small place, which makes it cozy and a great experience. On New Year's Eve, they had a more limited menu and we had to let them know in advance what...we wanted. But, that actually made the meal much more relaxing. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Every time we have been to Freddie's, we have had a great experience. Give it a try and we're pretty sure you will enjoy it as well!More

Thank goodness for TA or we might not have found this gem. From the moment we walked in we knew it was a special place. Popular with locals, we were lucky to get a table. A great wine selection too. I got the chicken piccata...and it was really good, the sauce was lemony like I like it and the chicken was tender but not rubbery. Hubby got Freddie’s Special Spaghetti and he real,y liked it. I wish we had another night in Kure Beach so we could come back and try their famous pork chops. Next time!More

Have been going here for 20 years, as we live locally...Doesn't matter what time of the year you will wait for a table, not really big inside...reservations only for parties of 5 or more..Don't be detracted by the decor..its very dated...I'm not really sure why...they don't update it...The food is so good...they are known for their pork chops...and on Mondays its 2 for 20.00 can't beat that...If you are a chicken parmesan fan, this is the place...the chicken parmesan is so good here...but tonight was dry...first time so giving them a pass on that...if you like cosmos...wow ....so great here...I think the prices are definitely reasonable...especially for the quality of the food served...the salad is to die for..I mean unreal...communal bowl on the table...is outstanding...this review is based on many times coming here...because its always so consistently great..out waitress was okay but not the most attentive, and it was not crowded...that said, great dinner all around...come for the pork chops, chicken Parmesan...and you will not forget that salad...More
