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.

This place reminded me of a toned down version of Senior Frogs in Cancun. It was a solid restaurant with decent prices given the proximity to the Main St. sweep. Go for drinks and appetizers.

Visited this spot for a late afternoon lunch and enjoyed our visit. It was seat yourself at the time and had a short wait to have a server bring menus to the table. They also had brought complimentary chips and salsa! I ordered the Surf and Turf tacos and was not disappointed. They were delicious, perfect serving size! My girlfriend... More

While soaking up the sun in Huntington Beach, take a break from the beach, walk across PCH to Fred's and have one (??) of their special Margaritas, some appetizers, and sample a couple of their salsas (a few to choose from). They have a great menu with a variety of items to pick from (salads, burgers, sandwiches too), and when... More

During her barhopping for anniversary, we happened into Fred's for a margarita right on the ocean. Overlooking the ocean, it was great people watching scene

I really like this place - you can't beat the location: Main St, upstairs with ocean views if you sit outside. I've been a few times and have been pleased with food every time. Surf and turf burrito - Yum and so cheap!!

The atmosphere, view, and food were all great! The service was slow. That was the only downfall on this visit. A long wait in between the time the waitress would check on us. No silverware till after the meals were served. Wth that said, I'd still recommend!

Thank Adubs247
