We were there last year for the breakfast buffet and liked it so much we tried the lunch. They are so busy and no wonder. The food is very good and they had quite an assortment. We didn't try the soup or salad bar as there were too many other dishes to try. Then they have an assortment of desserts.... More

This is a great buffet restaurant with hot food and friendly service. I often pick it for my birthday dinner with the family. The only problem is stopping when you are full, the food is so good and everyone can get what they want with the variety of food available. Love this place. Writing about it makes me want to...

We were on our way to Tampa for football game and needed brunch. Tried Freds. Great choice. HUGE buffet with Southern dishes galore. They offer many options for prices depending how hungry you are. 1 trip, multiple trips, meatless trip, they have you covered. Everything seemed fresh.

Breakfast is the best meal there for me. Plenty of fresh fruit to choose from and cheese grits, regular grits, cheese eggs, regular scrambled eggs and the people are great with customer service. My In-laws have to stop there every visit to Florida.

If you are craving a great southern home cooked meal, this is your place. Nothing canned, everything fresh. You can order off the menu or eat at the all you can eat buffet. This buffet is continually being refreshed with new food, so you never get old yucky dried up food.

You won't find a better southern style country buffet anywhere in central Florida. Eaten here many times, never disappointed!

Stopped in for Lunch with some family and all 3 got the buffet. I have to say this was not the Fred's we remember from our last visit. The fried chicken was very dark looking, like it had been fried a long time, or had been re-fried to warm It back up, and was not crispy. The gravy was very... More
