We drove all over looking for this restaurant, only to find out it was closed for renovations. We were quite disappointed as this restaurant is rated top in Halifax for seafood.

Service is very friendly, and the food is really good. The restaurant is small, but is expanding so this should help with the overflow of people at times.

Fish is very lightly breaded. Clams also. Thick filets. This place is comparable to a "seafood restaurant" not a "fish&chip" shop, as the dominant taste is the fish and not the batter. If you're looking for thick, crunchy batter look elsewhere. If you're looking for fresh fish taste, come here. Next time I'll ask them to cook the clams a... More

This is the best fish and chips I've ever had. Hands down! And I've had plenty💛Go anywhere in Nova Scotia and you won't be able to beat the best that you'll get here. Very small. Some stools at the counter and some stools across at another counter. Like an old time diner. Very small but I've never had to wait... More

Fredies is a regular stop of mine when I'm visiting family in Nova Scotia! All the staff there are so welcoming and friendly they make you feel right at home! The food is absolutely delicious! The portion sizes are like no other. They are always very big to the point you leave feeling completely full. Highly recommend!!
