Hot lobster roll was lacking - just lobster meat on a roll, no lettuce or accompaniments of any kind. And the butter that the lobster meat was tossed in had an artificial taste. Just nothing particularly special.

The truffle french fries were awsome. I am not a big bread eater, but the roll that the lobster was so good...I ate it all.

The Clams are awesome. The Lobsters are delicious. And, the beer selection is unmatched.

When I was a kid and visited friends in Maine, I had the most delicious fried clams straight from a wooden shack right on the beach. I have never had anything like those clams since then. The fried clams that I had at Freddy's were disappointing. I had hoped for better. Nice beer selection, but I can find a nice beer selection at dozens of places around the metro area.

The clam chowder was not good. It was mostly broth with a few pieces of potato and fewer clams....

Service wasn't necessarily the best though, not sure if it was a new server, but she forgot part of our order and just didn't seem all that attentive. Nice place though.

From Our Editors

Some of Jeff Heineman's earliest memories involved scouring sandy beaches for clams that he and his grandfather "Freddy" would then bake together. These formative culinary experiences instilled in Jeff a deep love for New England–style seafood, inspiring him to become a chef and eventually open his Mid-Atlantic take on a northeastern lobster shack, which he named Freddy's Lobster & Clams in honor of his grandfather.

The menu's Maine lobster rolls, fried clam strips, and ocean-fresh steamer clams exemplify this passion and help create a pleasantly anomalous eatery that Bethesda Patch described as "a seafood shack you’d typically find in Bar Harbor or Nantucket." However, the menu doesn't stop at the shoreline. The cooks also grill half-pound sirloin and short-rib burgers, and they load plates with crispy chicken paillard, grilled asparagus, and rosemary roasted potatoes with sage gravy.

The laid-back, casual inspiration behind the menu also influences the restaurant's décor, which features simple wooden booths and picnic tables amid walls lined with nets and fishing bobbers. This cozy setting creates a neighborhood vibe where visitors can feel comfortable lingering long enough to enjoy one more beer—and there are plenty to choose from, as Freddy's offers more than 100 ranging from hoppy IPAs to dense stouts made with malted black holes.
