We LOVED the food and had a very genuine sweetest blond waitress. We couldn't finish all our meal and it was cooked to perfection. The setting over the lake is ideal too!

Locals recommended we try this restaurant-and it was fabulous! We had the catfish which was fried to perfection! We also enjoyed the pickled green tomatoes! It was a relaxing, beautiful view of the lake as well!

This was our second trip to Fred's . We found it by chance on our last trip to Mountain Home area. Great food at a good price. They serve a large amount of food for the price. I suggest the catfish and pecan cobbler for...More
