This was my first brunch experience at Freddie's and wont be my last. The food; ambiance and our server, BJ was awesome! The owner, Freddie came up to our table and introduced himself to us and made us feel at home. I have been recommending Freddie's to everyone.

Freddie's is an institution. The food is ok but my husband and I go for the experience, the ambience, and the characters who work the front of house. Plus Freddie's very generous support of Dining Out for Life, supporting Food & Friends.

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!

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.
