Great place, great food & nice strong drinks right on Huntington Beach with a great view of the ocean! If you're looking for a lazy afternoon knocking back killer drinks & taking it easy then this is your place!

Took my 6 teenage kids here for dinner. Had great Fish tacos, burgers and fajitas. Service above par and the view overlooking the Pacific were fantastic!

We went to Fred’s on a Sunday evening for drinks and appetizers. We will not be going back to Fred’s and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The service was terrible. She never smiled and seemed uninterested in being there. She didn’t bring us a drink menu so we asked which beers they had on tap and she only listed off... More

There's better Mexican food. The service wasn't good they ran out of chips??? It was a Friday after noon. The food wasn't very good we aren't drinkers so maybe that's good?? Don't take kids it says kid friendly but that questionable.

I had been to one other many times on my trips to Maui. THAT Fred's is really good, from cocktails to a broad Mexican menu with daily specials. Smaller menu here with the usual basic Mexican fare and it seems like that's fine because their location across from the beach and Huntington Pier guarantees a crowd.

Fred's is located on 2nd floor, on the corner of PCH / Pacific Coast Hwy, and Main Street. Wonderful views from glass enclosed wind buffers, which let in fresh air, but hopefully cut the wind to a gentle breeze. We split a burrito with shrimp and beef, and also a very nice side salad, with Feta Cheese crumbles on top.... More

I walked into the waiting area and it was full of people with dogs. Lost my appetite and went to another place for lunch.

I always eat here when I'm in Huntington. It's pretty good food and cool beachy atmosphere. Sitting out on the balconey for a sunset meal is pretty awesome. Staff is always friendly.

I ate here with a large group, and they did a limited menu for us. The choices were excellent and varied - everyone found something they liked. The food was good and the portions were large. Good service as well.

We visited the open restaurant on a Friday evening and for being in a very busy tourist community the waitress was able to get us in with very little wait. We was seated and promptly the waiter came over to get our drink order. We reviewed the menu and all decided on the perfect dinner order and was only minutes... More
