Fredies is a regular stop of mine when I'm visiting family in Nova Scotia! All the staff there are so welcoming and friendly they make you feel right at home! The food is absolutely delicious! The portion sizes are like no other. They are always very big to the point you leave feeling completely full. Highly recommend!!

delicious food served up fast and you can tell by the line ups and steady stream of people coming and going from here that it is a popular place to get great fish and chips.

Very simple surrounding but your there for the food and friendly atmosphere. Take out or sit at the counter to enjoy. Very fresh fish ,as we say,the boat just dropped it off. Every thing is fresh and lots of it. Check their hours to make sure it's open.

Stopped by as I have been hearing great reviews from friends. Perhaps I had high expectations as a result and was set for disappointment. There was nothing wrong with the food; the service was very good and staff friendly. I ordered clams and chips. I have had better and I have had worse. I just can't rave about this place... More

I can honestly say we've eaten just about everything on the menu over the years since Fredies Fantastic Fishhouse opened. The fish, scallops and clams are very fresh and cooked to perfection. You will love the atmosphere of this place with people coming and going and the owners and staff chat with everyone like it is old home week. I... More

The ladies who work there are jems they take good care of their customers. Their recipe for fish is my favourite that I've tasted so far. It's fast friendly service I take my mom there and she loves it too. The building is nothing fancy but to me it's about the food!

I appreciate that opinions on fish & chip shops are personal, based upon things such as quality and quantity of fish, batter,fries etc.. My wife and I have been going to the Bayers Lake location of this operation for many years and consider it the best fish and chip shop in Halifax. Consistent quality in both the fish and batter,coupled... More

This little treasure is consistently the best in fish and chips, and their fried clams are to die for. Everyone there is so friendly and the service is very quick. I've become a regular.
