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 atmosphere is awesome and the queens were amazing!! The service was horrible!!!! We ordered food that we never got. He never put in our order. Drinks took forever. I would go back for the queens but eat before I go

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.

Freddie's continues to be the most entertaining venue in Crystal Pentagon City. The welcoming ambiance of the wait staff, sheer joy and energy of the Drag Show and great overall atmosphere make it my favorite bar!

We love Freddie's brunch! $25 per person and you get four mimosas/champagne and a full buffet. The crowd is interesting and fun. The wait staff are always so nice and helpful. And we just love the decor.

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!

The food was pretty good and i think their signature dish is the ham/cheese cinnamon roll. We got disappointed towards the end of our brunch when we were told that the Drag Queen performances are during dinner time and not brunch. We miss that highlight of entertainment, but overall great restaurant and atmosphere.
