Great place for lunch, after work, or drinks. Wife loves the Fried chicken salad, I love the Double Cheeseburger and Fries. Staff is great and Fred is a local legend. Decorations for Holidays are amazing.

Fred's reminds me of neighborhood bars in my hometown. Think Slapshot. If you want a can of beer and a great burger, this is your place... The grill is at the bar and there's a pot of chili simmering right there. Near as I could...More
