Freddy's is a good, local, Nevada City place. Have a drink at the Mine Shaft first. Great menu and good food in an authentic environment.

The food is excellent. A wide choice of options. Everything from vegan to meat eaters delight. We have gone for both dinner and lunch. Service is prompt and courteous.

My friend and I were looking for a good meal before the play. We ordered Woe wonton soup. It was wonderful. Fred's has been opened for 34 years. The service was quick. They have a full bar, great prices and the soup was awesome.
