We met friends here for dinner at their recommendation. The tables provided enough room to eat and talk. The filet of sole was flavorless however the autumn salad was good and could have done as a light meal. The chicken parmigiana was unremarkable. Service was good.

We were visiting family in the neighborhood and stopped here for dinner. Our kids love mac and cheese so they all ordered it off the kid's menu. Unfortunately, none of them liked the taste of it as it was made with stronger, more pungent cheeses, not the usual mild cheeses used in kid's mac and cheese. Wish the kids' menu... More

Couldn't get into the current hot spot across the street, so stumbled down into Fred's. Eclectic menu, from great crab cakes to Shepard's pie, along with other classics. Excellent neighborhood place, good food, good ambiance, and a lovely story with the name. I'm a cat girl, but fell in love with Fred! Am surprised it took me this long to... More

Cute restaurant with good food. I hadn't been here in awhile, and was happy to see the food and vibe was still good.

This is one of the coziest, pleasant and comfortable places to eat. The owner, David, and his staff are extremely warm and friendly and will do most anything to accomodate. With a diversified menu containing a lot of down home food as well - Mac n' Cheese, hamburgers, Veggie burger and orecchiette w/sausage are my favorites. Tonight I had the... More

I've been a few times at Fred's and I had a great time. I remember spending a whole day there in the middle of a blizzard and my friends and I we had a blast. Bartenders are super friendly and nice and they have good American food.

I've been here 3 times in the last couple of months. The food has been consistently very good as has the service. Very full menu and for NYC reasonably priced. Seems to be very popular as the bar is packed most nights.

Fred's has good American style food. Great for Brunch (with a good brunch deal!) and dinner. They also do good holiday dinners. Very comfortable atmosphere - with a British pub feel inside. Friendly, relaxed, unpretentious. One of our very favorites in the neighborhood.

Fred's is a great local restaurant for visitors to NY. It's always crowded, and it's got a huge bar area where you can eat if you'd like. We ate at the bar, and I had a lamb burger with sweet potato fries. Yummy! The owner is really friendly and all of the staff are nice. There are fun photos of... More

My first visit and it will NOT be my last. Very crowded for the holiday but the service was super and the food was five star turkey with everything.
