We stayed very close by and decided to make a simple evening of it. So we came to Fred's and were delighted with the atmosphere, food and wait staff. Reasonably priced, great Tex-Mex and across from the beach. Ate here twice, very pleased.

Being from Texas, we're always looking for good Mexican food. I am most comfortable with our TexMex, but Fred's offered fine Mexican fare. It's a bit more traditional Mexican. It was delicious!

Nice chilled out beach front restaurant and pub. Sand on the floor, laid back service and atmosphere. Decent food, what you expect from this type of place, good cocktails and cold beer. Just what you want while wanting a feed and a cold beer in Maui.

We actually were going to Moose Mcgillicuddy's for breakfast but were seated in Fred's. Found a 2 for one breakfast coupon in one of the free magazines. Great service and good value.

We visited here both for breakfast with family and dinner with friends. This is a casual, open-air restaurant within easy reach of several local vacation rentals and beaches. Breakfast had large portions, a large number of options, great coffee and reasonable value. Dinner had some very good options (Taco Tuesdays is very popular) and also good value, with dishes ranging... More
