Had a great lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. Interesting place with great friendly service. The burgers are yummy, served on a Brioche roll, done to perfection. Crab Cake was delicious.

My husband & I stopped here for lunch & were pleasantly surprised by some pretty creative choices. I had fish tacos which were awesome! The server could not have been more accommodating & the atmosphere was pub / energetic & welcoming. Highly recommend!

Excellent food and reasonable prices. Waitress was not only an excellent server but made us feel at ease with our children.

Add the chicken and you will have two meals! It is very busy but the wait was short and worth it. Great start to an afternoon at Smithville.

enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Fred and Ethel's. I would say the menu was "comfort food" our service was great. It was walking distance to our room in the barn at colonial inn.
