This is awful! There is nothing on their menu to keep you in your seat. Don't pass go. Leave fast! Don't be fooled by anything that you've heard. If someone likes it, they have no taste buds.

Went for dinner expecting to get my favorite item on Freddy's menu only to find that it's no longer served. The waitress said it was off because it was too expensive. Really, you still serve lobster? Instead I had the fish and chips. Good fish,...More

We ended up at Freddy's by mistake, but we were really drawn in by the casual and beach feel. It was a Sunday afternoon and the place was pretty empty. We ordered the Seafood bake which included lobster, shrimp, mussels, and fish. It had a...More

Stopped into Freddy's last night for a birthday dinner. The results and food were mixed. The service was a bit slow, although our waitress was pleasant. The truffle fries were very good - we all enjoyed them. My husband's lobster was good. My lobster roll...More

Came here and got the Lobster Roll and it was the best lobster roll I've ever had! The service was fast and nice. The atmosphere was cool and it felt like I was in a Florida beachside cafe. I really loved this place.

It's not exactly a cheap eat, but a good lobster sandwich is hard to find, Other items are also good, especially the top-notch clam chowder.

Visited this restaurant today after having it on my " must visit" restaurant for several months. It is a cute, rustic place in the middle of an urban area. The inside was decorated like a beach restaurant with picnic tables and a few booths. So...More

The cold lobster rolls and the "crabcake BLT" are very good. The fries served with the BLT are fine. In late summer, they have soft shell (recently moulted) lobsters, which make the best lobster rolls. Service is casual to indifferent. The beer list is good....More

This would be an excellent restaurant, if it were located at or near the beach. However, for an in-town location, it leaves something to be desired. Starting with the clam chowder, it was tasty but very watery. All chowders do not need to be thick...More
