I just visited Fred's House with my family again and I was very happy to confirm that the quality of their food is still top notch! I tried a little bit from everybody's plates, the lobster was fresh and cooked to perfection, the cod was magnificent. Don't miss the chance of trying out the barbecue grilled king crab legs, it's...

Two of us showed up without a reservation, luckily the staff escorted us to an available table outside just as the sun was setting over the lagoon. Spectacular View! We had the Beet Salad and Lobster Bisque to start, then shared the Au Gratin Potatoes and the Salt Crusted Grouper. The Grouper came to our table on a flaming platter,... More

Food was very good, service and staff made for a fun dining experience. Great personalities and very attentive. A couple of dishes were good, not great, otherwise this would be five stars. Don't skimp on desserts, they're great.

On the recommendation of a fellow traveler, I enjoyed dinner with friends at Fred's House. Welcomed by the manager and his team the evening was a great success. The menu offers a wide range of fresh seafood. Service is a highlight as timing and service was the ultimate treat. Recommend for the pleasant environment, delicious food and great service. I...

I eat out ALOT. All over the world. But the staff at Fred's was amazing. Friendly, efficient, quick. And the food was consistently fresh. Oysters and clams were incredible. Octopus delicious. And I loved the lobster tacos. Fantastic food served by an awesome staff. Thanks for letting me have a great experience.

Dined at Fred's on a work vacation with one other couple. Yes we skipped out from the group 😂! It was good! The mojito menu was unique and they tasted great! The food was average to good... nothing to go crazy about. The service was over the top... we may have had 10 different guys taking plates forks etc off... More

Located in the heart of the hotel zone, Fred's American Seafood and Oyster House rings true to its name. American style Mexican food is served in a Spanish colonial atmospherem with tiled floors, high ceilings, and no curtains. Thus, this sports bar and reestaurant is not the place for a quiet dinner. However, the service excels, and the varied menu... More

As we were staying in one of the hotels in the hotel zone (where the food is pretty average), we decided to check out Freds House because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We made a reservation using Top Table but decided to arrive early on the off chance we may be able to be seated, which were efficiently. Once... More
