The Freda Mae’s Story

Freda Mae’s was established in 2016 by Katie Bishoff and Brandy Thacker. Katie has over 15 years of experience in the restaurant/hospitality industry and has always had the dream of owning her own restaurant.

What our customers say

“We have been watching the progress the past few weeks and were so happy to see this restaurant reopening under new ownership. Stopped by for a late lunch. Wayne loved the mashed potatoes, chopped steak and cornbread.The smothered chicken was a tasty dish. The atmosphere is very nice and the owners welcoming and fun to chat with. We will definitely go back.Earlene Hogg

“First impressions are everything! Went for my first visit, and so glad my wonderful co workers recommended. I ordered the meatloaf sandwich which happened to be their special of the day “FRIDAY” it was AMAZING. I will definitely order again, and look forward to trying other great items on the MENU as well. The slogan suited the staff because Berkely was very pleasant and made my co worker and I feel very welcomed. I was so pleased, I am going back for dinner to order take out, so my husband can try. Very nice experience. Keep up the great work Freda Maes 🙂 sincerely a very HIGHLY satisfied GUEST!!Stacy Bynum
