Great spot often overlooked as you stroll by their subterranean venue. Decided to stop in and have dinner. Ordered happy hour drinks which were a great deal. Nice dog pics on the wall and I mean every wall. Pretty cool spot. Dinner was mammas chicken, mammas meatloaf, meatballs over pasta and Caesar salad. There were a few of us eating.... More

You really can't say more then you just gotta try Fred's. Its a local haunt that has all its walls covered in dog photos since its named after 'Fred' the dog. The drinks are great and not too pricey, the food is amazing for a little pub and not to pricey either. Really a warm and inviting atmosphere with great... More

When you walk in the door it almost feels like you should be on the set of "Cheers." Get seated around the corner and it's a comfortable and inviting (and family friendly) dining area. The chicken parmesan portion was enormous and delicious. Great burgers and house specialty mac and cheese. If you are on the upper west side it's worth... More

Went out with friends, the owner saw us looking at the menu posted outside the restaurant, and came out to greet us. We had the best time, the food, the ambience, the pictures of dogs, the waiter, the DRINKS, OMG, I had the best Pear Pomegranate Martini. I and my colleagues will be back, rest assure.

The staff and food are AMAZING. It is a fun atmosphere. When I was there Billy Joel was playing (not in person) and the whole place was singing. It was KaRaZy fun...A must when you visit the city..

One of the few places where the bartenders are nice to people. They don't act like they are doing you a favor by them pouring you a drink. The bar may be a little tight but it's a great place to sit at the bar and eat. Also, if you love dogs, the place is loaded with pictures of them

We met friends here for dinner at their recommendation. The tables provided enough room to eat and talk. The filet of sole was flavorless however the autumn salad was good and could have done as a light meal. The chicken parmigiana was unremarkable. Service was good.

We were visiting family in the neighborhood and stopped here for dinner. Our kids love mac and cheese so they all ordered it off the kid's menu. Unfortunately, none of them liked the taste of it as it was made with stronger, more pungent cheeses, not the usual mild cheeses used in kid's mac and cheese. Wish the kids' menu... More

Couldn't get into the current hot spot across the street, so stumbled down into Fred's. Eclectic menu, from great crab cakes to Shepard's pie, along with other classics. Excellent neighborhood place, good food, good ambiance, and a lovely story with the name. I'm a cat girl, but fell in love with Fred! Am surprised it took me this long to... More

Cute restaurant with good food. I hadn't been here in awhile, and was happy to see the food and vibe was still good.

Our desserts are the perfect finish to any meal, whether you choose our Homemade Cheesecake or California Carrot Cake.Our full bar is always a great atmosphere to enjoy a drink and get to meet other people.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
