Old Main Grille with delightful American dishes! Great Food!!! Full Bar and a lively, fun atmosphere where neighbors meet and eat. I have tried every dish on the menu and I cannot believe how great the food is. Fresh, clean and wonderful - Three words to describe it: O. M. G.!!! Come look at their amazing collection of old black and white photographs of Avoca in the "Olden' Days". Located on the new Avoca Retro- Renovated Down Town Strip! All I have to say is you gotta eat it to believe it!!!!!
Came here on a road trip. Got the burger, a side salad, and the onion rings. The burger was dry (it was well-done, they didn't ask how I wanted it cooked) and the side salad was sad (it was iceberg with some cheddar on it). But the onion rings. OH MY. Now, they were amazing! The service was friendly and it was in an extremely charming neighborhood as well.
i was very surprised with this little restaurant...its has a decent menu and the burger i order was perfectly cooked and delicious...at first it looked like a plain old burger but once you bit in to it...you will notice all the vegetables are inside the meat! Onions, peppers etc...i highly recommend you to stop by if you have a chance.

This place was great! Home style cooking and friendly waitstaff. I'm gluten-free, and they were happy to answer my questions about ingredients. The beets in the salad bar were excellent and the waitress said they were homemade with pickling spices. I had broiled walleye that was yummy and my boyfriend had chicken parm. We really enjoyed this stop for dinner on our way to Des Moines. Right off the highway and lots of parking.
Very quaint, kind, and comfortable place. Walked in and felt at home. Loved the lunch box collection and vintage board games on display. Had the salad bar and soup. Satisfied. Ordered the fried Carp. Fish was good, but the breading was strangely limp. No crunch. Wonder if it was heated up after it had been previously fried? Had tater tots instead of fries. DIVINE! Wish I Could get those all the time instead of fries. We also had the cheeseburger. DELISH! I'd stop here again. Service is so friendly!
Great meat! Great prices! A little rough around the edges. Passing through on a cross country trip and would stop here again if I was local. Hot roast beef was delicious.

Fred's Bar Online, Jukebox, Snooker Table, Darts, Billiard Table and cheap domestic beer DO YOU NEED MORE?? The patron's are local and make strangers feel welcome similar to An American Werewolf in London in the Slaughtered Lamb. Considering Avoca on has two bars this is the better choice with room to move and SMOKE. Yes, folks that's right, some of us still like to smoke cigarettes indoors, and if you don't like it, you have the choice to go somewhere that has no smoking (Like your house) After a few beers Fred, himself might hand you a Sharpie and ask you to autograph the ceiling (Make sure you pick the stool that doesn't rock back and forth) Plan on hearing A L O T of country music unless you want to pay a small fortune to pick music off the Web. Just an average Iowa bar with the regular working guys. Careful of the pool sharks- some of these guys are nationally ranked-no joke. Ask for an annual Fred's calender and get your pick of naked ladies or hunkie guys. Fred's is FUN FUN FUN!! Although you can no longer smoke in Fred's - they have a handy little back deck thing to go smoke on- *sigh* I miss the good old days
