    Drag show was amazing, one of them gave my best friend a quick dance to celebrate her getting married, BJ severed us always joking around with us super fun, and nice, the owner freddie was great and gave my friend advice on love. They only thing i we had a problem with was everyone one was receiving their food at different times and the bride was basically forgot about other then that Freddies and by far the best restaurant I've ever been too and highly recommend!!!!

    We read reviews giving Freddies 4 stars out of 5. Freddies is nothing more than a gay bar ( my wife and I have gay family and do not judge). The bar was cold (30s outside) and therefore we wore our jackets. Food quality was good but the menu is basicly bar food. Alcoholic drinks were watered down.

    Freddie’s hospitality and customer service was spot on, you really felt like you’re welcomed and wanted. Food was solid, ambiance lovely and fun. Freddie was super kind and walked us over to his other restaurant Fredricos, a trattoria just like the kind I grew up going to, will go visit soon. He was also nice to walk us over to a consignment shop, and got some real cool pieces. Thanks so much my lady loves it and wants to go ASAP

    Not happy that my party of 2 was sat in the back next to the t-shirt case and ATM. As a result, we were disturbed and inconvenienced severs times. Reservations were made a week in advance but still ushered to the back and could not see the stage of performers. However, we made it a point to tip every performer.

    The wait staff was annoyed that we did not go with the easy to administer brunch buffet. Also, the coffee was weak and tepid, the eggs were room temperature, no music. We had a reservation for 2, but brought a third person. Despite the fact that the restaurant was about 20% full, they put us at a high top in the back that is usually meant for 2 patrons. The other tables were empty for the duration of our meal. We could have sat at a table for 4, but NO! we had to sit in the back at the cramped table for 2. There was no music, no ambiance except shelves of Barbie dolls collecting dust.

    We LOVE Freddie’s!!! My daughter and her friend wanted to celebrate their birthday (one day apart from each other) with the family friendly Sunday brunch. Freddie himself gave each of them goody bags and the staff sang and presented them each a cupcake. The staff is very professional, friendly, and the food is delish!!!

    Freddie's Beach bar has a very friendly, neighborhood vibe. Our server was incredibly efficient and accommodating during brunch, which can be notoriously hectic. The food for the most part was typical neighborhood restaurant quality, although the fried pork was a pleasant and very tasty surprise. For the price and for catching up with friends in a casual, kitschy, low-key environment, you really can't beat it.

    The ambiance was great, the staff was nice and friendly. Unfortunately the alcohol was of pretty poor quality - I didn't drink much that night but got very sick. The drag queen show was mediocre, I wish the Queens talked and danced more and made more jokes.

    Freddie’s is, as always, a fabulous treat! Freddie himself is always present showing you how much he cares for his establishment in the community and loves his customers. From start to finish, his commitment to excellence is evident at every part of every meal I have ever enjoyed there for almost 20 years. I come from Gaithersburg as often as I can and I am ‘always’ well received by Freddie and his staff. I am happy from the moment I arrive until the moment I have to say goodnight. If I ever own a restaurant or public service venue, I will take a page from Freddie’s book on how to treat your customers and run your labor of love.

    Definitely an eclectic but friendly vibe as you enter the restaurant. We went there for brunch and there were plenty of dishes to choose from even for me since I do not eat meat or cheese. Our server, James, made sure our drinks were replenished throughout our meal. Freddie himself, came to all the tables to say hello and inquire that everything is all right. Bonus that brunch came with either mimosas, bloody mary, coffee, tea, or soft drinks. We would definitely come back again.

    We had an absolute blast! Our table was back in a corner, so we thought we wouldn’t be able to see the drag show, but the queens circle the room and really put on a wonderful show. Our service was beyond exceptional, thanks to Matt. He was attentive, personable, and did a fantastic job taking care of us. The food was delicious- we tried two appetizers and three entrees, and everything was really great. The prices are incredibly reasonable too, especially for DC. Our bill for 3 ended up being $110, which included two cocktails each. Thank you Freddie’s for a fantastic night!
