“Average diner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2011

After reading a lot of good reviews , I decided to take my family there for lunch. We were left largely unimpressed. For a diner, this place is extremely slow. There were only few patrons in the diner at the time but it took almost 40 minutes to get our salads. And no, there were not worth the wait.
There are plenty of other options if you want to eat inexpensively within walking distance of this diner. So do yourself a favor and pick a different place.

“love this diner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2010

We've been going for for years - since it was Noller's Diner. They have a huge menu, reasonably priced, and great service. Love their "garden omelette" and "cinnamon bun french toast". You usually have to wait for breakfast but it's worth it. Even if the line looks long, so inside and see how long the wait is - we've never waited more than 15 minutes. It's a big place and they get you served quickly. Highly recommend and will go there next time we're in LBI!

“Can't beat the selection!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2009

We go to LBI every year and always make a visit to Fred's at least once during our week's stay. The pancakes are yummy and service is great. The only problem is making the decision as to what to eat as there is so much to choose from.

“Good breakfast before a day at the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2009

Fred's is your standard diner with all the usual menu choices. Nothing too fancy, just good, solid food. And really good coffee. We went at 8:30 on 4th of July weekend and were seated right away. If you go later, there might be a wait. The diner is located near a lot of the shops on Long Beach Boulevard and a couple blocks from the beach.

“Favorite diner in new jersey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2009

Fred's is by far one of the best diners in New Jersey. The food is always excellent and plentiful, you won't leave hungry, that's for sure! I have been going to Fred's for the past 10 years and never ever had a bad meal there. The service is also excellent, very friendly, accomodating staff. On weekends, especially during the summer, there is a line waiting outside the door - the food is that good! Very accomodating for families, groups, anyone. The quality of the food, the friendly, fast service and the price can't be beat. They have the best omelettes I've ever had! Go to Fred's, you won't be disappointed.
