“Dead Freddies”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Our favorite place in OC! The food is tasty, especially the pasta salad, and the atmosphere is fun. The prices are a little too high, though, for a family restaurant of this caliber. If the prices were a little more reasonable, I'd give it 5 stars and visit more often!

“Not my best experience”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Went to Dead Freddies in December for a light dinner. We had been there last year, but just for drinks. It seemed like a fun place with a nice atmosphere, so we went back. I ordered a cosmo before dinner. The martini glasses are very small there, and it wasn't even quite half full. It was a terrible pour, and as a former bartender and bar owner, I would have been embarrassed to serve this. My friend ordered a manhattan martini that was approximately three quarters full. At least that was slightly better than mine. Our dinners were very bland, not what I expected at all. I had a cajun shrimp and crab wrap. I expected more spice and flavor. The best part of my dinner was the homemade potatoe chips. We were really disappointed and will probably not go back.

“Good for chachkis, comparable to Red Robin but pricey”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

A $90 dinner out for 2 kids, 2 adults. WAY too pricey. Won't be happening again:

We went for dinner on a Saturday night in December. We were a party of 7 total. There was a 20 minute wait so we put our name on the list, got handed a pager and could see our name on the electronic board displaying what each parties place in line was and their respective wait. After about 20 minutes or so, we went back out to look at the electronic queue board and saw that our name was no longer there, but we had not been called/paged. We asked where our name went and they could not explain....were told that we'd be seated asap. About 5-10 minutes later, we got seated.

The restaurant is very appealing with lots to look at (pretty, professionally maintained fish tanks, pirates hanging from the ceiling etc.). The place is great for kids (again, lots to look at plus the noise level is naturally loud so any meltdowns etc. will not be noticed terribly). We were greeted promptly by a great waitress, Kim. She was attentive and friendly. No problem in splitting the checks between our two parties. The drink menu was impressive but had no prices. Many of the drinks come in chachki take home cups--a fish bowl, a plastic coconut etc. We ordered some beers and and a coco loco drink (plastic purple coconut). The coco loco was very, very icy with little beverage to it. $10 price tag. Was not impressed with the taste either.

Ordered a chicken sandwich, rockfish fish and chips and 2 kids meals, one coco loco and a 32 ounce beer came to $76 something plus a $14 tip. The kids meals were kids meals. Chicken sandwich (Honey Do chicken sandwich) was fair. The bun seemed to disintegrate as you ate it. The flavor was nothing special, average boring chicken burger. The rockfish plate was very good though.

All in all, a fun atmosphere especially with the kids. However, the food and drinks just did not live up to the pricetag. Would try some place else next time.
