Continental Airlines Travel Magazine: "Freddy's...casual, free swinging atmosphere." AM NY: "One of the city's most popular Dive Bars." Metro (Mix): "Freddy's is all you would want (and more!) in a dive bar. The beer is cold. Their calendar is chock-full of interesting and offbeat events, including tons of live music, a diorama/craft night and something called "strip club." There is always something interesting on the TV sets, including amusing B-movie footage that you'll have to see to believe." Local Bozo: "like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, Freddy’s Bar has returned. In our ever changing and yuppified city, we need places like Freddy’s to thrive. Being original and respected is not easy to come by. Too many of our city’s watering holes and sports bars appear seriously prepackaged and have no soul to them. When I go sit down at a bar for a pint or even a shot, I want to feel like I am at a place...where I can call home."
