Frederick Wine and Dine food is great I love there fried pork chops.
Service is friendly but not timely they focus on larger group and forget about their small customers.

Overall our experience was
Overall our experience was very good. LOVED the band, Forecast. The acoustics are very good and we had no problem conversating while the band was playing. Also, was very glad to be able to watch the game at the same time. Seating was great. I would, however, reduce some of the lighting in the dining area. It seemed too bright to me for the ambiance.
Our party of 4 ordered appetizers. The Fredericks spicy shrimp was excellent! The shrimp was a good size and the breading was light and the sauce flavorful; however, the buffalo wings were a HUGE disappointment. The wings were so small they looked like they came from pidgeons. Drinks were good and strong and well priced. I would go again, but would NEVER order the wings.

I and my party were very pleased and since we dine out weekly, will definitely include Frederick's on our list of the best places to dine.

When making our reservation, we were informed that we had a two-hour limit for our table as it was a Friday reservation & a band would begin performing at 8PM. Our reservation was for 5:45, plenty of time to chat & enjoy our meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the mussel appetizers but did have to ask for a spoon to scoop up the wonderfully seasoned broth with the mussels. Salads arrived five minutes later & two minutes after that our entrees (hadn't even started eating our salads) so our table was full of plates. Timing of delivery needs to be worked on. This was our 2nd visit - the first time we sat & ate at that very high bar - don't understand the logic for the height - appetizers were unappetizing. Second visit was more palatable.

As an African-American, I
As an African-American, I try to support Africam-American businesses, but at the bottom line, if you treat me with a high level of respect and courtesy as a customer, you have me for life, and I will tell all my friends. I have recommended Fredericks to several friends already. The service was excellent, the servers were friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and wine listings,and the food was well prepared, very tasty and generously portioned. The live jazz is a nice little bonus.

The 2nd Time is a charm
This was my second visit to this restaurant. The first visit more than 1 year ago, was not favorable. This visit however, was OUTSTANDING. The restaurant was clean, the hostess was pleasant and our server was very accommodating. Now on to the star of the show....the FOOD! The food was fresh and tasty, the portions were more than generous. We left full and happy. I was so pleasantly surprised by this second visit, that I stopped the manager (who was visible throughout the entire visit, setting up tables, checking on customers etc.), to convey how pleased we were. I highly recommend this restaurant, I can't wait to re-visit....SOON!!

Great Food and Great Service
I was recommended to try Frederick's and I am so glad that I did! My whole family and I enjoyed the food. I ordered the catfish dinner with the garlic mash potatoes and cole slaw and everything was seasoned and fried to perfection. They played great music. The dining area was well lit and the hostess and waitresses were very personable and friendly. I will DEFINITELY be coming back here in very near future.

Satisfied Once Again!
The best advice I can give is to arrive early and stay late. Arriving early is not required, but because we did so, we began to enjoy ourselves sooner. The restaurant was able to seat us before our reservation time. Between good food, excellent service, bumping into several acquaintances, and enjoying the atmosphere, we stayed longer than expected. We thought we would be gone before the band started playing, but because we weren't we had to stay just a even longer. A brief visit and conversation at our table by the very hospitable owner capped off an excellent evening.

There are two things that can be improved:
* Use a plastic tablecloth instead of the white paper on the tables
* Have some handwipes/sanitizer on the table or on the counter when you leave instead of the server coming over to skirt some in your hand.

"There's Good in the Hood"
My high school John F Kennedy held the class reunion last year there and my husband and I love it and since we have nothing like this in Akron. We always bringing family and friends to experience the place. The live bands are excellent shout out for "Ro Ro Brown and JAM-Just About Music" . We encourage our adults sons to take their lady, for it's cozy and it grown up!
