This is a small local seafood restaurant that has both eat-in and take out options. The fish is fresh and high quality and the portions are really generous. The staff and general atmosphere are warm and inviting. This little gem has a stellar reputation for a reason - check it out!

This is the best fried fish in HRM that I've ever eaten. And you can eat it outside or inside. Very light and fluffy.

A good feed was had by all, the staff were very nice and the fish was nice and fresh. Also the hand cut fries were excellent so many places use frozen fries but not at Fredies

Food always fast, fresh and served with a smile. Nice small-town feel in the city. Excellent customer service,usually remember your name.Parking can get busy so avoid traditional lunch hours.

Fish is always good, nice size fillets with big flakes. Fresh and nicely battered, not too heavily. Fast service no matter how busy they are.

Awesome fish - lightly battered and crunchy, tons of condiments. Fried were fresh as well and seemed hand cut with peels on.

Thank Alexis k
