Fred’s Not Here ★★

Price: $20+

Fred’s Not Here is not bad but they could improve. First of all, just getting into the restaurant is a little confusing. Their sign is above the wrong restaurant so you must read a little sign pointing you next door to know where it is. Not hard but it doesn’t look professional if you get what I mean.

I just had a starter – the baked lobster and crab soup with a shot of cherry ($9.49). It’s good and hot; they somehow puff the bread up over a soup bowl so once you break it, it deflates and you can scoop out the soup. If you order this, probably order another item as well since as a starter it is not filling enough. This usually wouldn’t be enough for me too but my friend also brought in cake (I ate here for her birthday), so by the time we finished I was actually full.

I noticed some people liked the seafood especially, so maybe that might be worth checking out. I wouldn’t suggest the fries though, I saw them and they seemed like ones you find in a frozen bag. I think it would be wise to ask the servers for recommendations if you really are debating, they probably won’t steer you wrong.

This leads me to the next part of my review, the service. I think service here is actually fast paced. At times I felt rushed to order or finish my meal but since I was with a big group, I kind of understood where they were coming from. Our server was nice but she seemed scattered at the end. When everyone was paying their bills she gave a lot of us the wrong change, so make sure you check your bills when paying cash here.

Overall, good place for lunch and dinner with friends, coworkers or older relatives. Not so much with your boss. They have a lower level bar area but its hardly packed on a weeknight. Dresscode: Casual to Semi-Casual.
