Valentino was great - every time I was just about to take the last sip of my champagne he appeared at our table with another full glass. Also the gentleman making the omelettes is friendly and delivered our omelettes tableside when they were done. Freddie's is my go-to place for brunch in the DMV area, the ambiance, service, and price can't be beat!

I love Freddie’s! The food is great, and the ambiance is even better. Freddie is so warm and personable, and my daughter loves it when he shows her the new Barbies he has in his collection. A must-do in Arlington!

Awesome place for brunch on a Sunday with friends. It is the only GLBTQ place in Nova and is always a good time. I’ve been coming here for years. The decor is fabulous, the ambience is great and the staff is really fun. Freddie is the best!

Our waiter was not good and kept messing up our oder. Lastly, we ordered a dessert and it never came.
Also, people who sit on the patio, shouldn’t be charged a cover fee. You don’t get the same opportunity/show as those who are sitting inside.

The atmosphere was lots of fun as there was a guest singer for several hours and then it became karaoke night. The food is nothing to write home about and and their wine selection is horrible! They really need to get a better selection. Fun place to go with friends but don't go for the food.

I took my boyfriend here for a nice quiet brunch on Sunday. Great selection for the price! $24.99 included 3 mimosas, a wide variety of breakfast foods (Asian, Southwest, American, and more) and an omelette bar. The owner even came up to us at one point, greeted us, and gave us some souvenirs and told us about his other restaurant. Very nice experience overall and it’s hard to find that combination of great food and small-town, face-to-face customer service these days.

They have an incredible happy hour from 4-8pm that I enjoy. On Wednesdays, it's 1/2 price burgers and then Drag Bingo starts at 8p. Who doesn't love bingo and drag queens? They have a large Sunday brunch with champagne, mimosas, or bloody Mary's as well. The staff is friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is inviting. I bring my friends there and enjoy it. It's a great spot on 23rd and living in Pentagon City, it's like my 2nd home.

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.

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.

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)
