My husband and I went to Fred's February 16 for dinner. Upon walking in we were greeted by two rude hostesses. We had reservations but were asked to wait while folks with no reservations were being seated. The waiter was very nice. He told us...More

Arrived on a Saturday evening around 5:30 pm. Staff was friendly, but beyond that we were very disappointed on so many fronts. First, the spinach-artichoke appetizer dip was "average", nothing more. The real disappointment was waiting 50 minutes for our entree after we ordered. The...More

One of my favorite BBQ restaurants. Good food, good service and good drinks. We really enjoy the outside area in the fall. Good weather and music some nights.

Had the unfortunate experience of attending a club event at this place on Saturday. Just awful! Salmon heavily salted could not enjoy, a shame as Fish was properly cooked. Deserts both over done with sugar. So many good places I would avoid this place. Go...More
