Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant
Saturday - Sunday: 10:00 am - 2:00 am
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.
We were having a small family celebrating. Everyone enjoyed the food and our server was attentive but gave us room to enjoy ourselves.
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)
My bestfriend came all the way from NC for her 24th birthday and she really enjoyed herself !
Our server Tyler was great and James keeps you entertained.
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.
The Sunday brunch was amazing. They have a wide variety of items to choose from and they were all delicious.
Great value for the money.
Yet another fun, festive, wonderful Saturday evening at Freddies'. The show is always top notch and there is no place that makes you feel so welcome. Great food and reasonable prices and a top notch wait staff.

Always fun to go to Brunch at Fredie's. Can't wait to try his Italian restaurant opening just down the street in a few weeks. He gave us a peak preview.
We always enjoy our time at Freddie’s, this particular evening we had Pam as a server and she is outstanding.
The staff was amazing! I had Tre’ and he was attentive and on point. I will be back next week!
Went for date night/my birthday. It was absolutely amazing. This is second time going for drag night and we love it more and more every time. We'll definitely be back!
Always a wonderful time! Freddie never fails!! Can’t wait to try the new place!!
If you are an open minded person Freddys is a fun place
Love this place! Love Freddie! Can’t wait for Fredericos!!!
The food was great, the ambiance was amazing and the staff was out of this world! Our host BJ in particular is a jewel and an asset to his establishment. I would go here ANYDAY! I certainly will be back soon.
Super fun. Great happy hour and lots of fun on wednesday nights with drag queen bingo
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!!!!!
Great show! Great waitstaff! Great food and all around great people! OH! And the happy hour prices are ridiculously great!
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.
I am a longtime regular at Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant. An absolute wonderful experience each time you go- energetic, fun, friendly, and gay! Brunch is a must at this iconic Arlington, VA establishment.
I came with Tiffany, Freddie’s friend. I did not miss my reservation. The host did not check me in. Freddy sat us himself.
My friends & I got together for an impromptu brunch. The seating was great, James our server was outstanding, & the variety of food was very good. The pointsettias (drinks) we're tasty & come with the brunch. Or mimosas or a Bloody Mary. Very enjoyable.
Everyone at Freddie’s is so nice and friendly. I love the energy and fun of the drag shows. It’s always a good time!
An excellent place to have a birthday party and enjoy some piano music and later do some karaoke.
Went for drag bingo and had a blast! The entertainment was live and very entertaining. You WILL have a ball.
I brought some family that was in town for Mother's Day to the show on Saturday evening and they all had a blast! Shout out to our fabulous server Megan! I love Freddie's and i will definitely be back again soon! <3
Always great choices, great service, relaxing atmosphere. Very reasonably priced as well.
The drag show was so much fun!! Great queens and performances. Food and service, not so much. I'll be back taste some different dishes and hopefully get a nicer waitress
Excellent brunch with even better service.
We've never had a bad experience at Freddie's. In fact, this is our go-to spot in the neighborhood, and we love meeting up with friends here for brunch. It's one of the most welcoming places for everyone!
Had a very nice time - the service was very good and the waiter was very pleasant. You can't beat the unique, fun, and cozy ambiance.
The food was a bit hit or miss. The only reason I would deduct a star is because I don't really think the value matched the price. $24.99 whether you drink alcohol or not for a buffet that was rather average was a bit steep - I had been under the impression it was $14.99 based on other reviews (and I don't drink).
Overall, nice and fun, though I don't think I'll be back for the buffet.
One of my most favorite establishments of all time!
Freddie himself is a gem and it shows in his care to detail, not only of the very unique and special decor and ambiance he has created by putting his personal collection of items throughout the upper level of the room, but to his level of standards and quality as a caring owner. He makes a special effort to personally come and greet you and stops at each customer’s table to check on your comfort and accommodation.
THE FOOD!!! Oh my goodness the food! From Sushi to Mac n cheese, a beef carving station, waffle and omelette station, tons of fresh shrimp!, all different kinds of eggs, Chinese cuisine, Latin cuisine, sausage gravy and biscuits, fresh fruits, mimosas (included), and so many other dishes! The room sparkles as the eyes dance on every niche. The music plays softly in the background and the efficient and friendly staff rush to your every care and desire with a smile! (Our waiter James was so cute, so sweet and so attentive that he just took my breath away!)
The patio is just lovely for a sunny day and the karaoke at the grand piano later into the evening is just so much fun! (I went back for dinner again that night and had their sesame seared salmon and almost went into shock it was so delicious!)
I come into VA when I can and only wish I lived closer so that I could look forward to being a regular to enjoying Freddie’s brunch every weekend! Thank you Freddie for providing this little haven as a beacon in an otherwise cookie-cutter world.
Karaoke night was excellent.
I love the brunch buffet. I go there occasionally as a Sunday brunch treat.
Wonderfully friendly and fun place. Pamela Stanley was incredible, and with such a low cover charge! Good is delicious.
Easter brunch was wonderful. Been to Freddie's many times and the food is great and service is wonderful. We'll definitely be back !
