Want a casual dining experience, a night out with the kids, a fun-filled night out on the town, or a place with plenty of TV’s to watch the game? No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it at Dead Freddies Island Grill on 64th Street and the Bay in Ocean City.
Dead Freddies opened their doors on May 13th and have swarms of people coming in since. Dead Freddies now occupies the building that used to be Castaways Bar and Grill. You thought Castaways was good, Dead Freddies is even better!
Many renovations and changes have taken place since you were at the location last summer. The restaurant’s dining area provides a cozy, intimate setting for families, couples, and groups. Big beachy curtains are used to separate the restaurant into sections. After eating dinner, pass through the curtains to the outside patio and bar area. The huge blue lights illuminate the 18-foot pirate ship for children to play on while parents can sit and observe their kids and enjoy the bay breezes. Manager Julie Burton says, “Dead Freddies is a family restaurant first, with a focus on great customer service.”
Dead Freddies has multiple areas for entertainment. Party outside at the deck bar covered in Maryland sports teams flags, watch the Zion Reggae Band perform on Thursday nights, or enjoy the game on any of the 12 televisions hanging above the indoor bar.
The average entrée costs around $18, a steal in a resort town! “Anything on the menu with crab is a favorite,” says Freddies publicist, Jay Bosley. The restaurant staff highly recommends the Crab Fritters. The 5 jumbo lump, battered crab tempura fritters are served with spicy aioli sauce for dipping and make for the perfect snack anytime. The kids menu is impeccable and great for even the pickiest little eaters. Children can chomp on “Peg Legs” or kid-sized chicken wings, grilled cheese sandwiches, “Fish or Chicken Planks”, corn dogs, and other pint-sized proportions.
Looking for a place to drink? Grab yourself a fish bowl or a sand bucket and you’re set. Fish bowls and buckets are filled with a tasty Caribbean punch, mixed Malibu Rum flavors, and Grenadine. Stab your straw into a real coconut and try the special Coco Loco house drink. Natural Lights are only $1.75 while Red Stripe and Red Stripe Light bottles are only $2.75. Sit back, have a drink, and enjoy the island themes and relaxing setting of Dead Freddies on the bay.
Dead Freddies is open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Food is currently served until 10 p.m. now but the full menu will be available until 1 a.m. starting in mid-Summer. Dinner reservations are recommended.
