Fred's reputation is well-earned, and maintained! Fabulously smoky, flavorful, tender, moist meats, delicious sides. I was WOWED by the crab-stuffed mushrooms.

My husband and I split the Fred's special. Plenty of outstanding food, and will return because of the awesome service.

To Fred's for steak. Shame, I hate steak (oh all right, I love it really!). So here we are in this modern (yet traditional) restaurant, post-fire as my family were keen to point out, surveying a wall of signed pictures from celebs big and not so (Bill Clinton was clearly a fan) whilst we awaited our table. It duly arrived,... More

In 2014, Fred's experienced a substantial fire. Unlike Cafe du Monde, Fred's was not able to rebuild in a day. It took over a year. So locals and vendors had to wait. Oftentimes, my husband and I would stop here in the late afternoon and grab some wine in the cozy bar area. Fortunately, that survived. We have been here... More

As a recent transplant-to Bentonvillle, I just love Fred s Hickory Inn. We Love their happy hour in the log cabin area. The staff is nice and knows what they're talking about. Steaks, wine, spinich dip are all great.

Wanting to treat a friend to lunch around the holidays I chose Fred's----convenient to Bella Vista but just a short distance from her usual favorite place. Gosh, not a good choice for that particular day and time? (I hope!) Still have not figured out if the waiter was new, poorly trained, or terribly distracted! The restaurant did not appear to...

Nothing better than warming up by the fire at Fred's! Amazing traditional Italian food & amazing, unsurpassed bbq. Bbq is vinegar based and absolutely AMAZING. Perfect place for a date, family dinner or just friends catching up. Bar is also a great local hangout.

My daughter suggested this place and we were very pleased. Among us we got the burnt ends, half a rack of ribs, grilled chicken, and a pulled pork sandwich. Big portions so we shared and had enough to take leftovers home. No one was disappointed. Our server was very friendly and helpful.
