Fred's is a good place for lunch in Beech Mountain. Wide variety menu. Food is tasty. Not always is the amount of food provided a good value relative to cost. Great ice-tea. Good beverages (Coke products).

Absolutely without a doubt 100% NOT the best breakfast on the mountain. Got the big breakfast over easy with sausage & hash browns. Well my eggs were over hard the hash browns were actually home fries that were stone cold & as salty as your granny when she misses mattock. The sausage was ok & the toast was done well.... More

Stopped in for lunch on the way to ski beech mountain and got the chicken cordon blue sandwhich which was tasty. The deli downstairs has a good selection and the general store upstairs is well stocked w trinkets and essentials

What a pleasant suprise hidden under Fred's General Store. Excellent fresh baked breads, muffins and cakes alongside deli cheeses and meats served in a casual atmosphere overlooking the mountains.

Well, I took their slogan because it is true. Downstairs is the Deli that puts out some great sandwiches! Upstairs is the hardware and gift shop. The 2nd floor is a gallery of nice pictures and various moments of your visit. We even picked up milk, bread, etc. for our return to our cottage.

Vegetable soup was great. Heard the chili was better but it goes fast. Shouldve bought more soup. Freds has everything you need

We went here twice for breakfast during New Years weekend. Both times the food was great. On one of the visits the register ran out of paper and it took FOREVER to order but I would go back. if you get there before the rush, you'll be fine. I wou;d definitely go back.

Fred's is a general store with a little deli off the back of the building. The food was good but the best part was the view. We had a long wait since it was new years weekend so we sat in the sunroom watching the snowfall sipping on our coffee until the food was ready.

Thank Greg D
