“Traditional Diner with Modern Beach Decor”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

The interior of this traditional diner is light and bright. We ordered a breakfast of eggs with the standard sides. The food was great and the coffee was excellent! The staff was friendly and pleasant. We will definitely stop in again when we vacation in Beach Haven.

“Very Good!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here with my son... service was prompt and with a smile. Food quite good. Price was very reasonable for a resort town.

“Simple and Good”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Clean and nicely remodeled after Hurricane Sandy. Went for breakfast and the choices included a good variety of eggs, omelets, and pancakes. Our omelets were fluffy and delicious.

“Great place in Beach Haven”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Well we've been going to Fred's for 4 years now and we've never been disappointed. Of course, diners are hard to review...what CAN you say about diner food? But Fred's is such an institution, it's a real pleasure to 'come home' to.

The food is pretty typical of good diners (and yes, there ARE BAD diners out there.) Lots of 'comfort food'...meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc. My wife and I usually hit them for breakfast on our way back home from the shore.

Pancakes are VERY good as is my favorite creamed chip beef on toast. The meatloaf is pretty good as well. Their tomato bisque soup is EXCELLENT. All in all, everything on the menu that we've tried has been at least as good, if not better, than other diners I've been to (and I've been all over the country.)

What really sets Fred's apart is the service and the 'atmosphere' for a diner. It's a family run business and it shows. Everyone is VERY friendly, service is helpful and prompt. You never really wait a long time for food. Fred and everyone is always ready to crack a joke or help you catch up on the latest gossip around the island.

Prices are pretty typical as well, and a BARGAIN for a Long Beach Island restaurant. And bathrooms are VERY clean.

So if you're looking for good food at a reasonable price, Fred's is hard to beat.

“Great for Breakfast!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We went to Fred's early in the am before it got busy and we had great service and great food. We all just ordered breakfast: eggs, home fries, toast and various breakfast meats. Great service, great food and definitely would go back.
