It's Monday, that's it. The staff on Monday are more interested in talking with each other than service. Again only 7 customers in the restaurant. Two Southwest salads and both made with old brown lettuce, who ever cut up the lettuce and made the salad should be let go. One of the owners should be there on Monday to supervise.... More

Stopped in because my wife wouldn't stop raving about the Asian Nachos. OK, they are pretty good. Fred's also has a very impressive list of beers and ales on tap. Worth it for you to stop in for some refreshment next time you are in Snohomish 👍

As before, my wife and I had a good/decent dining experience. We really feel they have good food and affordable prices. Fred's offers a good value. However, there are a couple things I do have to note from this visit. First...the wait staff still does a good job, but they all seemed a little lethargic on this visit. Maybe it... More

Fred's is one of our go-to's when we're meeting up with friends we haven't seen in awhile, for birthday get togethers, and if my husband and I want to enjoy a tasty beverage with our dinner out. It has a fun laid back atmosphere. It gets loud and it's a little darker inside than your typical restaurant. But that's what... More

Great small atmosphere restaurant. They have a variety of food to choose from. Pricing for lunch was above average but you got a lot of food for your money. Food tasted fresh and cooked well. Service was good. This place is located right in the downtown shopping district.

A lot of beers on tap, and a lot of scotches too plus good food, you can't lose! It has a full bar, but it is a restaurant so the whole family can come in. Their brewery nights are a lot of fun too.

We've eaten here a few times in the last few years and liked it, so was confident to recommend for a lunch with old friends that hadn't seen each other for awhile. We enjoyed the atmosphere but we shared my sandwich and my friends fish & chips. My sandwich was dry and her fish was overcooked. I know they can... More

This is one of my our go to places. We have 2 youger kids and a teenager, so it can be hard to find somewhere that everyone can agree on but this is the exception. They have good food and a large selection of beers. The only negative is that a lot of times, after finally selecting a beer of... More
