Went on a Saturday afternoon. Got seated right away and the wait staff were really good. Looking at the menu the prices all seemed pretty high. I went with the cheeseburger and fries($13.75) and my son went with fish and chips( 6 oz. fish, $13.75). The burger was nice and large and made with fresh beef and on a specialty... More

The fries were good. Fried veggies basket was mostly batter crumbs and the batter isn't very good. They were okay though. Very greasy.... On the chicken strips the batter was too thick and gooey on parts. Skewers were okay. Wouldn't go back or recommend though.... Service wasn't good either.

I was in town for some accounting training. I asked for a great place to go and found this on the way to the recommendation. I went in and was seated quickly. I saw a man sitting at the table next to me and asked him if he had eaten there. He eats there all the time and recommended that... More

Stopped for dinner while staying in Butte overnight. The town was kind of dead, but Fred's had some cars in the parking lot. When I walked in, I glanced over to where they were preparing the food and saw a huge container of fresh raw onion rings. Since they were not prepackaged or frozen, we tried them. I could have...

Went here to enjoy outside dining but there was some sort of car show next door and it was too loud to sit outside. The atmosphere was ok. I ordered Fred's special and it was just OK. Garlic fries were good, but pretty pricey for what it is all around. Seemed to be the consensus of our group.

We were in Butte for the day hitting some of the high spots and just wanted a fun easy place for lunch. We got recommendations from both the Chamber of Commerce along with a local at a gas station - both suggested Fred's. It's a great little place - nothing fancy, but good solid food and the best fries I've... More

Great grilled food on the deck with a cold micro brew! This is what summer is all about! Good food and experience. Would recommend.

We were debating where to eat, and a chance conversation with a Butte police officer led to a recommendation for Fred's. What a great choice! Just walking up, the smokey smell was incredible. There was patio seating available, so we dined outside. Seating and service was fast and efficient. We had a slight delay getting the bill, but nothing major.... More
