Conversations with Pam (the bartender-not High Peaks Pammy) reveal the nature of Frederick's as the season unzips: Karaoke Fridays, Sundays with live entertainment and a raw bar on the sprawling deck, which seats up to 100, and full lunch, dinner and late-night menus are all waiting their turn, parkas buttoned to their chins. Open at noon on Saturday and Sunday and 4:00 Monday through Friday during the off-season, Frederick's will expand its hours and open at 11:30 every day from Memorial Day to Labor Day. I poked my nose into the dining room and detected a faint whiff of sage. There's room for around 70 people in the dining room and 55 in the bar area. A modest game room in the back contains a pool table and electronic dartboard with plenty of shelves to hold the drinks and elbows of spectators and socializers.
Add Frederick's to our list of hits! I can't wait to visit this summer.
