Loved everything had the 1/5 sampler which is way more than I thought! Everyone working treated me like family which is rare for a restaurant!

All prices were changed one month ago. For example, family portion of fish and chips coasts now 46$ (it was 35$). But the quality is perfect and the staff is friendly and polite. Big portions of fish!

Overall a lack lustre meal for the money. Friendly staff though but for the money we found this place a little too highly rated.

I've ben to Fredies a couple of times but my daughter visits her grandparents every summer and always goes at least twice. Best fish and chips, great seafood chowder and really friendly staff. A must visit every time in Halifax!!

Okay, it was alright. The fish was good, one person got a big piece, the other a little piece. Fries were good. Clams were okay - I usually like them but I didn’t care for these. Scallops were quite good. This is a popular lunch...More
