My boyfriend and I came to this town on a spur of the moment. We were not sure what to find but we came across this little restaurant. We thought the food was pretty good with a large portion size. Staff was very friendly and helpful. One thing I will recommend is the bacon wrapped shrimp. It was very tasty!!

Great place and delocous food, large servings for dinner. We loved everything we ordered and the service was great too. Located in a cute little old town, so we took a walk and went into some of the shops after dinner, then scoops for dessert. We recommend checking it out.

This is one of our favorite local restaurants to visit for lunch or dinner. The food is always excellent and being able to walk around to visit the different shops makes it even more of a pleasure. A club that we belong to had our awards banquet/Christmas dinner there in 2015 and it was decided at our January meeting that... More

I enjoyed dinner at Fred and Ethel's in June 2016. The service was very good and my turkey dinner was delicious. We shared a chocolate lava cake, and it was devine. I would definitely visit again.

Amid the all the eateries in Historic Smithville lies Fred and Ethel's. Their menu is loaded with ample choices of comfort food. I had the bacon cheeseburger. It was cooked to perfection and delicious! The service was stellar. The prices were very reasonable, too, for being in a tourist attraction. There is also a lovely patio for outdoor seating.

This awesome restaurant is located in the Historic Smithville Village. We are going back next month to explore this area and to eat at this restaurant again. We had appetizers, soup, chili and Mussels. All were perfectly cooked. My favorite was the french onion soup and mussels. Its my birthday and I am heading there!!

It's our anniversary and we are hungry after antiquing and shopping. Fred & Ethel's had 2 lunch specials that caught our eyes - homemade chicken & rice soup and my wife spied the Shrimp, Feta with Bacon Salad. Our server was so friendly and she made us feel more than welcome. The soup had such large chunks of white meat... More

Friendly, casual restaurant that has a nice menu with a creative twist! We had apps and ordered from the lunch menu. Everyone was pleased with their selection including a Vegetarian in the group. Prices are very reasonable and mix drinks/craft beer selection was good.

Food was good, price was reasonable, server wasn't the best. Had to finally get the attentive waiter to get my waitress after a long period of time away.
