Tiny restaurant not enough seats. Food is good. Not a lot of parking space. A little bit hidden. It is always full.

The food and the service are second to none! The fish and chips are amazing! Also excellent seafood chowder and lobster rolls. The portions are generous and the staff make you feel like you are the most important person there! Fredie’s Is the BEST!

Great hidden gem in Bayer’s Lake park with delicious fish and chips. Awesome lunch deals and great clams too! Resto is quite small so better to order takeout for a large group.

I know good clams. This place pre cooks their clams because they are so busy, but the end up being overcooked. Clams were lime rubber. Deep fried haddock was excellent. Clams not so much.
