Freddie’s Restaurant & Pizzeria has been a staple on Broadway in Long Branch N.J. for over 60 years.

Freddie’s was founded by Fred Scialla in 1944 and was originally opened across the street from its present location at 563 Broadway in the building presently occupied by Wenning & Sons Wholesale Foods. It moved across the street in 1952 and has been there ever since. Fred Scialla was an Italian baker whose unique recipe for making pizza dough was apparently also a recipe for pizza success. Specializing in thin crust pizza and home-style Italian dinners Freddie’s has become an institution, feeding generations of families. Freddie’s itself is no stranger to family generations as it was originally operated by Freddie Sr. for many years and then by his four sons Joe, Sam, John and Freddie Jr. until 1995. Freddie’s was then sold by the Scialla family to their first cousins the Brockriede family and is now being operated by Mark Brockriede, who represents the third generation of the Scialla / Brockriede family. Though many things have changed at Freddie’s over the years, such as an expanded dinner menu, a remodeled dining room and many, many, new pizza toppings and combinations, one thing will never change--Freddie’s will always continue to use those same unique family recipes to serve you the finest home-style Italian dinners, and its now-famous thin crust pizza!
