The food was pretty good and i think their signature dish is the ham/cheese cinnamon roll. We got disappointed towards the end of our brunch when we were told that the Drag Queen performances are during dinner time and not brunch. We miss that highlight of entertainment, but overall great restaurant and atmosphere.

I go to Freddie's a few times a year and I like it. Sorry to post a negative review, but it reflects only today's visit. Saturday brunch on a blistering hot day. Very few customers. Something told me to order from the menu, but I chose the buffet. Indeed everything had dried and was unappetizing. Was not a good value. I hasten to add that I've been there on a busy day and it was excellent.

The entertainment was amazing, the food is ok, but the service could have been better. It took some time to get appetizers and drinks and then the main entree. My friend came about 10 mins later and it took at least 20 mins for her to be able to get a menu. Once we got our food we didn’t see the waitress again until after the drag show was over and then it took 30mins to pay our tab and able to leave. Which would have been fine if we could stay for the karaoke but we had a minor with us and the rules are they have to leave after the drag show. Overall the entertain was awesome and we had a great time, service could be better.

I try to visit Freddie’s every time I am in town, especially if I can get there on a Wednesday night for bingo and half price burgers. This is a very fun restaurant, extremely friendly staff, good food and great fun! I highly recommend Freddie’s!

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.
