Freddie's Beach Bar is an awesome place with a friendly staff and entertainment. It is also a great karaoke venue where you can sing your heart out every night. Freddie's is a straight friendly Gay Bar where all are welcome. Saturday drag shows are wonderful as well as the piano bar on specific Sundays. Parties happen just about every weekend for birthday's, bachelorette parties, anniversaries etc. Drag Bingo Night is a hoot every Wednesday. The owner Freddie Lutz, is on site often and always spends time greeting and getting to know his customers.

You owe it to yourself to go to Freddie’s. The atmosphere is so much fun and it’s the best weekend buffet you can get. Make your reservation and treat yourself!

Freddie's is my neighborhood bar. They have an incredible "Crazy Hour" from 4-8pm with great discounts on beverages and bar food. Their papusas are awesome when paired with a drink or two. They have an incredible Sunday brunch that's great to bring your friends with champagne and mimosas. They have great deals of Taco Tuesday and 1/2 price burgers on Wednesday. On Wednesdays, drag bingo also makes it a lot of fun. I can't say enough great things about this place. Freddie is a great guy that does a lot for the Arlington community and the staff really make you feel great.

Freddies is always a great place to go for brunch or Happy Hour or just because. Omelets & waffles are made to order & served hot. Our server, BJ, was outstanding & very customer oriented!!! Just love her!!!!

Always have a good time here at Freddie’s. The Freddie came by to check that our experience was going well. My favorites on the brunch buffet are the spinach salad and the chicken pesto pasta.

Disappointing! This is the first time that I had to pay a cover charge to eat at a restaurant. Made a reservation to eat, have some drinks and see the show, and they ended up seating us in the patio with no access view to the show and still required us to pay the cover charge (the doorman made us pay the cover charge before we knew we would be seated outside)

I picked Freddie's because I wanted to do karaoke. I didn't realize there would be a drag show - bonus! Also a bonus - I got there at 7:30 and it was a Saturday - and they actually had happy hour drink specials until 8 PM! Who knew? It was very busy and very loud, so not really great if your goal is conversation. But if you want to be entertained, enjoy some strawberry daiquiris, and maybe even sing - it doesn't get much better than this. Our waiter, James, was awesome - very friendly, very attentive. I would definitely come back for more.

We go to Freddie’s often and on this occasion we were celebrating my nephew’s birthday. The staff is awesome. This is the best straight friendly gay bar where everyone treats you like family. The karaoke is fun and entertaining. Crazy hour runs until 8 and has excellent deals. All around awesome time!!!!!

I really wanted to love this place based upon recommendations and location but it just missed the mark for me. The service was outstanding and the people seemed friendly enough but the food left a bit to be desired. All of the entree’s on the buffet were lukewarm when we fished them up and completely cold by the time we reached our table. I ordered an omelette from the manned station expecting better but I was disappointed again. The spinach in my ham and spinach omelette was so bitter and overpowering that I couldn’t take anymore than two bites. Needless to say, I left still hungry. I was so disappointed that I didn’t even try the desserts. We won’t be back.

Taco Tuesdays? Nightly GREAT karaoke? Brunch? Excellent service, tasty food, and warm, friendly locals. LGBTQ+ bar that is also a family-friendly dinner spot. That's Freddie's. The owner also is devoted to helping the community, so your dining bucks go back to making Arlington stronger. Go. Now. You're welcome.
