I really hate writing bad reviews but this was awful. We waited for an hour and 20 minutes before getting our food and there was about 8 other people in there. I had Fred’s special ribs and to be fair the portion sizes were really good but the quality was nothing to write home about. They were burnt not marinated... More

All other steak-houses around was fully packed on a Friday night, so took a chance on this one that had only one table occupied. Mistake! Ordered the top of the line filet. a little chewy, and falling apart on one side like it was put together to become a bigger piece. Baked vegetables, totally over cooked and lousy presented. Oven...

Fred's was something like the run of the mill steak and ribs places that are scattered around the USA but much smaller. I wanted to see what the best cut if meat was like in a place like this. Two guys do it all in this place. When we arrived the other two parties were nearing finishing. We ordered and... More

Quality of steak was not good, appeared to receive multiple pieces to make up the weight. Asked for rare and came out medium to well done. Overpriced for quality. People next to us seemed to enjoy their ribs but we won't be going back to try.

Great steaks, cooked perfectly and full of flavour, The service was brilliant: the waitress even allowed us to taste a couple of different wines before choosing and sorted out a special deal for my daughter, who didn't want anything off the kids menu - she prefers fillet steak! Not much to look at from the outside and the interior has... More

We were looking for somewhere suitable for children that was not too expensive. This fitted the bill perfectly and we were not disappointed. The waitress was lovely, helping us to decide between the different steaks, and even allowed us to try a couple of the wines before deciding which to buy. The steaks were well cooked (rare t-bone for me,... More

Don't be put off by the outside of this restaurant or the menu with the pictures on in the window! We had one of our best meals in Amsterdam here. We had Argentinian sausages and chicken wings to start with which were lovely followed by a mixed grill for my husband and ribs for me. The mixed grill included rump... More
