Happy Hour at Freda’s

In: Drinking|Eating

(map) Freda’s Seafood Grille throws a happy hour every day from 4 to 7, except for Saturdays and Sundays, when it goes on all day. That makes for a pretty happy hour indeed, with special prices on 11 seafood appetizers, as well as on wine, margaritas and martinis. Above, the seafood-stuffed avocado, two halves overflowing with shrimp, crawfish and spicy Cajun andouille sausage.

Freda’s Crab Cakes are unconventionally thin, but packed with a lot of crab. In fact, they’re mostly crab, dusted lightly with crunchy panko bread crumbs. They’re served on a deliciously rich foam of lemon butter.

The calamari is light, too, fried in a tempura batter. Dipped into a freshly made marinara sauce spiked with Italian herbs, the rings are tender, not rubbery.

Peel-and-eat shrimp are always fun. These are slightly spiced, with a horseradish-y cocktail sauce for dipping.

Happy-hour specials are available either on the outside deck, which is shaded by a big pergola, or inside at the bar.
