This was a great South Austin experience: bar, restaurant, outdoor music venue and children's playground all rolled into one, family friendly place. I hope something good replaces it.

It was a live music venue where your kids could climb on a natural outdoor playscape and your dog could tag along while you enjoyed a cocktail and heard live music.

Freddie's Place represents what I like about old Austin, family and dog friendly places, with simple fare, entertainment, and a playscape for kids, all under a "backyard" setting. The food isn't super good, but the atmosphere is. I'll miss it when it closes.

Wasn't too busy when we went, so service was fast and friendly. Food was great, all 5 of us enjoyed our meals. Actually the only exception was the country fried steak. That wasn't so good. Large booths able to acomodate big groups.

Only visited Freddie's for cocktails but Stoner the bartender was fabulous. He was a wealth of information and entertainment. We will return without a doubt.

For a few bucks you will get homemade good food. It is served with a smile and the atmosphere in the area is inviting. Wondering how it will be in the evening.

It's not easy to find but if you want a taste of what "makes Austin Weird", go to Freddies. The food is very good, the coffee delicious, the service is excellant, but it's strictly a no frills kind of place. It's friendly for family and...More

I like coming here for lunch because they have a nice patio area where my dogs are welcome. There's even a doggie burger on the menu and help-yourself water bowls for the dogs. The food is your basic burgers, salads, fried chicken kind of thing,...More

Met some friends here for breakfast with the kids. Weather was perfect, so we were able to sit, talk, watch college gameday while the kids played on the playground and got to pet a few dogs as well. Food is your basic breakfast fare with...More
