This place really lived up to its reviews. Classy décor, muted relaxing background music and the most tender, delicious fried oyster sandwich I have ever eaten. It was served with a delicate lemon and dill sauce on a roll with lettuce tomato and bacon. They...More

Always a great meal. Wonderful deserts. Wish it was a little bit larger. Kind of cramped in some places.

Nice decor, good service, good food and good value. Try the mac and cheese! We were told it was like no other and it was! Decent portions for lunch.

We went here on a Sunday evening around 6:30 and were seated right away. The food was very fresh and innovative. Our waiter was very helpful with good recommendations on the menu. Wonderful fresh fish.

Went to Freda's for lunch on Sat (5.2.15). As usual, it was fantastic. My husband, myself and my daughter (who had never been to this restaurant before). All three of us had a delicious lunch (and it is close to the shops). It is also...More

I hesitate when Trip Advisor asks if this is one of the best meals you've had in a restaurant, but this time I clicked "Yes" for the first time. Appetizers of cherry peppers stuffed with prosciutto and cheese as well as coconut and sweet potato-crusted...More
