Fred's Hickory Inn
slow hickory smoked for at least 5 hours
Food came out at just the right time and was great.
Good food and service
The steaks were delicious, cooked to perfection. Service was very good, and the free slice of birthday cheesecake was divine
Ribs were not on point, but overall we had a nice dinner experience. Service was excellent!!
Ate a nice meal with extended family at Fred's for Father's Day. It was our first time eating in a restaurant since the pandemic began. We felt well taken care of and the staff was wonderful. Our waitress wore a mask, was extremely courteous and made sure we were comfortable. The food was delicious! Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.
It took a while to receive our meal, but when we finally did, it was excellent. The 20% discount given on our bill because of the wait was unexpected, but much appreciated. Next time we make a reservation, it will be for outdoor seating. They have excellent entertainment on Friday nights!
Perfect for a cozy steakhouse/BBQ place....food and service were great...with great price point!
This is our favorite restaurant in northwest Arkansas. Wide selection of food is expertly prepared. My favorite are the ribs. Nowhere better exce6Texas. Servers are personable without being intrusive. Staff are prepared for sanitizing and social distancing. Highly recommended.
Our food was very good. Service was outstanding; we were treated very well.
It was wonderful!! Great service and amazing food. Thank you.
I’ve always wondered about this restaurant but seemed to forget about it until my wife mentioned it and we both had an “oh yeah!!” Moment. Finally ate here and absolutely loved it. The sirloin was fantastic and the pork, despite being a little dry, was very good. The cheesecake was massive and was the perfect way to end my date with my wife! The atmosphere was also a very nice break from reality. A great place to get away or have a business dinner while still being able to watch the game on TV. We will absolutely come back.
Came and brought my family for a late valentines dinner and the atmosphere was awesome love the place
Loved my food waitress was really nice would definitely go back
We went on Valentine's night and had the steak for two. It was a bone-in ribeye and was cooked perfectly. Everything we had was delicious. It had been many years since we had been to Fred's and we weren't disappointed. It was a perfect meal.
Very nice place for a special dinner! Warm and cozy environment with great service! The steaks were cooked perfectly! I would highly recommend Fred’s! I plan to return!
Had reservations for an early Valentines dinner. When they sat us, we waited 15 minutes at our table before I found someone to serve us. Ridiculous!! Food was pretty good once we got service!
Good grades - kid’s choice
First time I’ve had the Chop steak and it was delicious. It had a nice char on it, medium rare juicy and awesome. I would definitely order again.
Great food great atmosphere excellent service we will be back
Awesome food and service. This has been my favorite place for smoked sirloin since I was a young child. Still just as good as I remember it. Great job!
The service was good but the food wasn't good at all. And for $100 for a family of four, it should be the best meal of my life. The Mac & cheese tasted like mushy noodles with warm cream with no cheese, salt or pepper. The beer cheese sauce had neither beer nor cheese in it. As tasteless as the Mac & cheese. The kid’s meal included Ruffles chips dumped straight out of the bag onto the plate. Would not return.
Steaks were awesome...chicken pasta was clumpy and not warm.
Always a great meal! My salmon was awesome; my friend’s basil chicken was wonderful; hubby’s 4 smoked meats- He loved! Other friend had smoked chicken which was good too. My sautéed spinach was very good also. But the star of the meal was the cheesecake! Absolutely hands down the best cheesecake EVER! We also had Tiramisu, which was good, but it couldn’t hold a candle to the cheesecake. All in all, a fantastic meal for our friends’ 50th wedding anniversary!
The place looks to have great potential but it is so dark in there it’s hard to see the food. And the food was terrible. There were 6 of us and not one of us had a good meal. The service was okay but bartender was slammed and doing her very best. Would not recommend.
We had reservations for 4pm so maybe that’s why the following was observed.
All of the food came out warm, would have liked the food to be hotter and fresher. The ribs were dry and excessively greasy. The side salad was an extra cost and felt like it should be a side that could be part of the main entree. Also there was no bread offered with the food. Not sure if they had bread on the menu or not. The atmosphere was the best attribute of our experience.
I was very disappointed with Open Table. We arrived for our reservation only to find the restaurant was Not Open at all. We learned a valuable lesson. You can’t trust Open Table. Call the restaurant and make a reservation with a PERSON.
We celebrated Christmas Eve at Fred’s for the second year in a row, and plan to return in the future. 🙂
“ BEWARE “ If you drink. They seem to like to rip off there customers. Had our Christmas party here a few days ago. I ordered a round of Patron tequila shots to toast the year we had. When I got my bill , they charged me $15 each. With tax and automatic 20% gratuity. That was a very pricy toast. I won’t be back.
Excellent food with friendly staff. Best cheesecake you will ever, ever, ever eat.
First time dining there but it certainly won’t be the last. Great food and service. A bit out of the way, but well worth it. Steaks were prepared properly and sides were very good.
Perfect for a special night out or even a casual dinner. Fred’s always has impeccable service and amazing food.
Took my team to dinner at Fred’s and had a wonderful evening. The service was excellent and the food tasted so good.
We went for Thanksgiving. I was slightly disappointed in the way the buffet was set up and actually what was provided as far as food goes. It looked like something set out at your house. I will say the service was excellent.
The buffet for the price wasn’t good at all. Things were empty, down to bottom. Buffet line was a mess. Will not go again.
We reserved table via opentable app for thanksgiving—when we arrived we were seated promptly but were surprised the regular menu wasn’t offered. There was a buffet—very nice selection and everything was great. They did tend to run out of certain items, but the staff appeared to make every effort to keep all fresh
the food was better than last years, we really liked the smoke flavor,but the price is a little high for the limited choices. the waitress was at her best as always
The food was cold and not very tasty and it was way overpriced!
It was Thanksgiving and we were all very thankful for Fred’s being open!! We had a party of 7 and we were seated immediately. They did an exceptional job managing the big crowd!! Great job!
