Been about 7 months since I hate here and this time I could not eat the fish! Very bland and greasy with the batter not covering the fish totally. Plus a few hairs from the "in over their heads" ladies that were working there.This place was a weekly visit the first 2 years for me.I would have returned it but was short on time. I will return to tell them about this now that Iam home again. Do not go here unless you can go back in time a year.

A friend of mine who is a Newfoundlander has always told me about fries dressing and gravy and how amazing it is. I was a little hesitant about it but when she heard that Fredie's makes them she had to go and I had to come and try them. It was amazing. The fish was amazing, the Newfie fries were to die for. I will be back! Maybe not as soon as I would like to be. You need to try this!!

My Newfie friend decided to bring me here so I could have my first fries, dressing and gravy experience and my god was it delicious! The people are amazing, friendly and made me feel like an honorary Newfie. Newfie fries are definitely a new favorite.

First time visiting this wonderful place and it blew every expectation out of the water. Amazingly friendly staff and incredible fish. But the best part by far was the Newfie fries - fries, dressing and gravy! Being a Newfoundlander this is my new favourite treasure and I will definitely be back any time I need a piece of home!!
