“Price the specials”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The food and ambiance of Freda's are terrific Great location and cozy atmosphere Our only complaint is that the specials are not priced and there are many of them Customers should not have to ask and wait staff cannot recite the prices of 15 entrees and apps

“GREAT restaurant with different food”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We have gone to Freda's many times and NEVER have we been disappointed.
The food is outstanding and the choices are different.
I had a scallop / mushroom dish over pasta with a wine / cream and herb sauce. It was sooo good I felt like drinking the sauce.
My wife had salmons stuffed with REAL lump crabmeat with grilled veggies - awesome.
Its a bit pricey but, worth every penny.
you MUST make reservations in advance.
BTW - you can BYOB.

Enjoy - I'm sure you will.

“Tasty lunch”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We enjoyed a nice family lunch here during vacation. The special soup that day blew us away -- Jamaican cream of carrot with crab -- and our kids loved their meals. Much better than standard kid menu fare. Our entrees were delish; the only criticism I'd offer is that the salads were not as fresh/local as they could have been. But very tasty, creative food.

“Delicious Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We went here to celebrate our daughter's 25th birthday. The food was so good--from the ribs, lamb chops, swordfish, crab cakes, chicken parm to ahi tuna everyone loved their choices. The seafood bisque was also tasty and the stuffed pepper appetizer everyone raved! this is our third time here and we will definitely return. It's BOYB which is great. Agreed the seating is close, but it does give you a chance to see what else is on the menu. The menu says they add gratuity for parties of 6 and above, but we were seven and they did not add the tip. Glad we asked or our waitress Ashley would have been stiffed!

“Consistently Excellent!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We have had the pleasure of dining at Freda's for a number of years. Freda's offers a wonderful menu with special entrees offered each evening. I can honestly say that Freda's is one of the best restaurants in the Cape May area. Service is excellent.
