Our desserts are the perfect finish to any meal, whether you choose our Homemade Cheesecake or California Carrot Cake.Our full bar is always a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink and get to meet other people.

“Nice Place. Dog Theme”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Named after a black lab, Fred's is a casual restaurant with walls lined with photos of DOGS! Went for Sunday brunch. $16.95 for full brunch including coffee and a Bloody Mary! Kid friendly dining rooms with a full bar up front. Quick service too. We will return....

“Great spot on the UWS”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Just went to Fred's for the first time with a bunch of friends and it was great! The staff is so welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. The menu is great with lots of fun choices and the prices are very reasonable, especially for NYC. They did not rush us, even though we had one of the largest groups in the restaurant and they were crowded. I will definitely being going back.

“Great family spot”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Been to Fred's a few times with my family and have never been disappointed! The service is very friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Can't go wrong with one of their delicious burgers. Plus as a dog lover, the pictures of dogs on the walls only makes this place even greater.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

What a great late night find for our tired family! Warm,inviting and welcoming with fabulous but easy going service. Nothing too unusual on the menu but everything we had was excellent. The roast chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and both our kids loved their pasta dishes. They have hundreds of dog photos on their walls which we enjoyed - there is a dog story behind their name. Happy to have found them.

“great family friendly spot”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We ate at Fred's on a Saturday night during Christmas break following our day at the American Museum of Natural History. We had read about this restaurant on the Mommy Poppins blog of family friendly spots. It did not disappoint. We had a group of 8 - 4 adults and 4 kids ages 15, 7, 7, 5. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. kids menu and crayons. Excellent pear and pomegranate martini ! We all enjoyed our meals and found the prices to be excellent....not that much different then back home ! Service was terrific- they kept our water glasses full, which was much appreciated after a long day of sightseeing. It was a perfect place to be with our kids and we felt like we were in a neighborhood joint. The rest of the diners were a mixture of adult and families with kids. The décor is nothing fancy (dog pics all over the wall). We would come back in a heartbeat for the value, good food, and family friendly atmosphere.
