Freddie's Beach Bar & Restaurant
Saturday - Sunday: 10:00 am - 2:00 am
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 !
We has a great time at the Easter brunch! We were not expecting a drag show and were very excited by the performances. The place is just so much fun and there are tons of food options. The only downside was even though we made reservations 2 weeks in advance we were sat at the bar. Both my friend and I commented to one another that we had never been assigned bar seating with a reservation in the past. The place wasn't even full but I got the sense they were trying to maximize occupancy, which totally makes sense!
I love this restaurant, the food is great, the service is fantastic and the atmosphere is fun. Try it, you'll love it!
Great atmosphere great people and great food. Valentino our waiter was awesome. The show was awesome. We will be back!!!
Freddie (the owne) was a great host. He meets all patrons at the entrance, walks them to their table, and also gives them a tour of the food stations located throughout the restaurant. He truly provides great hospitality.
Food was delicious with a variety of Sunday brunch buffet items to choose from. The owner, Freddie was a great host to my family and I. He was very friendly and worked the floor just as much as his staff! I would recommend Freddie's to anyone looking for good food and good vibes! WE WILL BE BACK!
It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t what we were expecting. I thought it would be more lively and it was very tame, and cramped.
A funky atmosphere and personable staff almost draw you away from just how good the food is. Brunch was of excellent quality considering the buffet format. Do not skip desert. Bread pudding made with a dense banana bread was my favorite. My friend couldn’t get enough cheesecake. Enjoy. I’ll be back.
Had brunch here. Loved it! Restaurant is so beautiful and vibrant! Good and drinks were good! Can't wait to visit again!
Awesome spot for brunch!
We celebrated the birthday of a dear friend who has been wanting to go to Freddie's for a long time. What a great welcome thanks to Freddie and staff! The Fabulous Champagne Brunch was, indeed, fabulous. Extensive, tasty buffet with something for everyone and every diet, and even green champagne for St. Pat's. Freddie's is a fun, jovial, friendly environment and all can feel welcome. All the reasons you might have to go out to eat will be met at Freddie's, and a happy, feel good experience is included at no fee. 😀💜
We had a really enjoyable experience. Our server was nice and was knowledgeable about the menu. Drinks were mixed well and food was pretty good. Unfortunately, about half way through the drag show the owner had to come on the mic and ask for volunteers to pay up and vacate. Apparently the Fire Marshall showed up and said they were about 50 people over limit. This was weird to me because having been there before for the same thing, I'd seen it much more crowded without any issues. I have to wonder if someone complained...
Our third visit - always great brunch choices. Tasty food, friendly atmosphere. Relaxing morning/afternoon.
Not my first time here. Got my 16 friends to join in celebrating an 85th birthday of one of our friends. No one else had been to a drag bar before. ALL straights had a great time. Marvelous drag contest. Great food and service. Very reasonable prices. Straight friendly, non- threatening fun time. Will probably go back for final contest.
We never miss stopping at Freddie's when we're in town. Always fun. The owner is delightful and always seems to be there. Friendly neighborhood bar and eatery.
