This is not your typical ALL-U-CAN-EAT buffet! There's not 100's of items to choose from, but what they offer is super tasty and good quality. First, you decide whether you want all-u-can-eat ($10.99), or if you want to make one plate trip through the Market Table (main buffet) and then one plate trip to the Salad Table ($9.49). There is...

Food was ok. I wouldn't rave about it. But the service was horrible. Our server got us our drinks. We weren't sure if we wanted something off the menu or the buffet. He said he would give us a few minutes then went and hung out with his for 15 minutes. Came back and asked if everything was ok. We... More

I like this restaurant, and the service is friendly. I went with my son who has a peanut allergy, and they fry in peanut oil, so his buffet options were limited. They did have s sign warning of that. Still, there was a nice selection of other foods.

Driving back to south Florida needed lunch after leaving Tampa. Found this place using tripadvisor. Thanks fellow travelers. Food was good home cooked deliciousness. Lots of southern favorites and so many sides. They had a gluten free list available for me so I was able to enjoy a buffet for once. Family enjoyed fried chicken, fried catfish, mac and cheese...

We were on a road trip and missed the exit where all the fast food restaurants were advertised from the highway. We took the next exit and accidentally found Fred's. What a find! The breakfast buffet is phenomenal and there are different options: full buffet, small plate with meat or no meat options. The service is friendly and efficient. I... More

For breakfast, lunch or dinner, Fred's is yummy! It's down home Southern cooking. Best fried chicken and fried catfish plus a huge buffet of other meats and veggie. At breakfast there is also a huge buffet or you can order just what you like. All the local folks eat there!

Fred's is an excellent place to eat if you want lots of southern food. They have a lot of choices of meats and vegetables. I ate recently in a restaurant in Savannah and this place bests them hands down. You can also choose what size plate that you want. That is a great option for those who don't eat a... More
