Description: Time Out NY named us one of The Best Burgers in the City, and our Macaroni -n- Cheese made with aged cheddar is legendary.Fred’s well-rounded menu has something for everyone, be it Crab Cake Benedict or an omelet for brunch, Fred’s Pear Salad, a burger, Lobster Ravioli, or our New York Shell Steak for dinner. Our desserts are the perfect finish to any meal, whether you choose our Homemade Cheesecake or California Carrot Cake.Our full bar is always a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink and get to meet other people. Try a themed cocktail off of our menu, like Hair of the Dog or Paw Punch. We also offer Trivia ever Monday at 8:30 p.m.

Having read the reviews of Fred's on Tripadvisor we were really looking forward to trying it. In our 12 day stay in New York we only had two disappointing meals and unfortunately this was one of them. We shared buffalo tenders to start which were quite ordinary. For main i had a really disappointing steak - it came with a spoonful of mash which in fairness was delicious. On the plate though the dish looked basic - not restaurant standard. The veg were tasteless and unremarkable. My husband's burger was disappointing. For desert we shared a dry mediocre chocolate cake. The service although friendly wasnt great as was evidenced by the fact we had to share a fork between us for the main course as they forgot to replace our cutlery after mains. On the plus side it's a real New York eatery (not a tourist trap) and the pics of the dogs were a lovely touch.

Fred's (named after his dog) with the great tag line: "Come, Sit, Stay" is a neighborhood favorite. Well prepared American cuisine that always rates several thumbs up...
Excellent bar that is best on cold days in November and a wonderful street dining area for spring, summer & fall.
Rock on, Fred.

Welcomed in out of the storm, promptly seated, we had the 8oz burger with onion and Swiss cheese... Awesome burger ... Great flavour with a fresh salad on the side. Great service.

We met up with a friend who lives on 57th St and she recommended this restaurant. What a great meal, service was good even though our waiter was being trained - he did a good job! The walls are covered in pictures of dogs in recognition of restaurant being named after the owners dog - alas Fred is long gone. Between us we had a burger, chilli and lobster ravioli, all delicious. Would certainly go back and would urge you to eat here

We had such a great experience dining at Fred's. The restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly and the food was affordable and tasty. They had an extensive children's menu and activity pages to color. The kids loved all the pictures of dogs around the restaurant! In the warmer months they have outdoor seating which is great. We loved our dinner at Fred's and will be back when we travel to NYC again.
