If you want quiet, fine dining don't come here. Very upbeat, great for a variety of tacos. Good for watching sports. Good cocktails and beer.

Fred’s offers good Mexican food, and great cocktails. The location is great, with an ocean view. We got very good service, and I would return to Fred’s again.

Great and diverse food selection, epic portions, and well served, Fred’s is a staple we always hit in Kihei. Lots of interesting things to look at, inside and out.
