We typically make three-day visits to Lake Norfork and we eat at Fred's both nights. I prefer to eat on their covered deck. The view of the lake is fantastic. The view of the neighboring rundown cabins isn't so attractive. The atmosphere is just what you would expect from a restaurant on the lake. Fish are both pictured and mounted on the walls. Their prices are very reasonable. Their portions are hefty. Our family has been satisfied with everything they have ever ordered. I suggest ordering the Big 'Un with both breading options. The service is fast and friendly. They have a large gravel lot with plenty of parking. The desserts are a great way to end a fantastic meal. Fred's isn't a trendy/modern restaurant. Fred's has character. They are a good old fashioned restaurant that is perfect for a family after a long day on the lake.

This place has been here 25-30 years and nothing's changed. That's good regarding the fried fish, but not so much when it comes to their facilities. This was my favorite area restaurant in 1990, worth the drive to its out-of-town location. There has obviously been no additional investment; everything from the parking lot to building and furnishings look eroded, run down and tired.
Despite the decline in the facilities, the restaurant remains fairly busy.
I suppose this is a testament to the public's appreciation of their tasty fried catfish.
