    Ordered catfish and coconut shrimp and paid up for baked potatoes. 2 small shrimp and I small piece of fish no butter in potato. Catfish had no taste at all. Shrimp were very tough. Waiter rushed us and was slow to bring us 2 tiny little scoops of butter. Very expensive meal for the two of us snd very very disappointed. Won’t come back.

    Freda's was closed due to damage from an ice storm. I left a neutral review because I wasn't able to judge the service. I never received notification of the closing, however; so a phone call or email would have been a help.

    Mom wanted seafood for her 58th birthday, so to Freda’s we went! Everything was really great. Nice vibe for a birthday dinner to get a little dressed up for and even got to meet Freda! Food was good but the starters were the best part. We had the crab stuffed mushrooms and the shrimp and crawfish fondue, the cornbread they served was also very scrumptious. Dessert was enjoyable with the white chocolate bread pudding a la mode taking first over the crème brûlée, both were very good. Special shout out to Ben for his wonderful service, he made the experience that much more special with his knowledge of the menu and great personality! Only down side was the 20min wait for our reservation. Other than that, we would dine here again. Thanks y’all!

    I know many love this place. The service is good, and the manager was friendly and was clearly interested in our satisfaction. The atmosphere is lovely. But the food is bland. It's as simple as that. It's really unfortunate. The food needs more/better flavor to rise to the level of the literally everything else about the place.

    I had the shrimp wedge salad, which was excellent. The bacon had a sweetness that was unexpected and nice. The shrimp was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Also enjoyed the large fresh oysters.

    We purposely selected this restaurant for its 4.75 star rating. The food was okay - but I won’t go back. Average at best. Overall I was very disappointed-certainly not a near 5-star experience.

    Went on New Year's Eve. Food was good, but for the price I would have liked more selection in the menu. When I made the reservation, there was no indication that there would be a limited menu on New Year's Eve. My wife adores seafood, so this dinner was mostly for her. I'm a vegetarian, so I had hoped to graze from their decent selection of sides on their regular menu. However, when we got there, I learned that the menu was very limited, and no options for me. I ended up with the server getting me one of each of the sides that are served with the existing entrees. That is, I had three items, none of which I would have selected, given more variety. Otherwise the meal was good. We sat outside, which was nice, since the weather was good, and not crowded at all.

    It was New Year's Eve and we were seated in the bar area near the restrooms so it is obvious that we had many distractions to our conversation. We arrived about 10 minutes prior to our reservation and were seated after 15 minutes. Waited for a few minutes before wait staff arrived to take drink orders but they returned quickly, Placed an order for the shrimp/crab bisque which was presented at room temperature and had no visible shrimp or crab and it was more like a puree with no appreciable flavor. Wife ordered the orange roughy and I ordered the crab stuffed salmon. Both were served at proper temperature and were very delicious. We passed on dessert and left shortly after receiving check and it being processed. our trips to Freda's are normally a more pleasant experience but considering the celebrations, it was ok.
