If you are looking for good, old comfort food, this is the place. Great breakfast for a reasonable price. Yes, the decor is outdated but that’s part of the charm. Food is always cooked well and is plentiful. Don’t miss this gem.

Great food especially their breakfast #2. Not any frills (small diner) just good food and coffee. Price is right for the amount of food you receive

Great prices, quality and quantity. Open for breakfast and lunch - but honestly I can never get past the breakfast. Never had a bad meal at Fred's. Small place, but well worth it, if you can get a seat!

I am retired restaurant manager, and over the years I have discovered that your locally owned establishments are sometimes the best place to eat anytime of the day. AND FRED's IS THE BEST......My friends daughter who lives in Akron took us to breakfast here. And...More

I would say no; very old place from back in the day. Tight and crowded.
