Fred's Southern Kitchen Winter Haven closed several months ago. Sad to see them go they had a really good breakfast and lunch at a reasonable price, dinner was a little over priced.

This restaurant closed several months ago and became Johnson's Barbeque. This has also closed recently. I answered questions only because I could not post this closing with out doing so.

This is a newly remodeled place that has a nice menu. I would recommend it to almost all my friends,. It's reasonably priced, clean and tasty.

Fred's was just so-so. Maybe it was me, not fond buffet type restaurants. Now a Bar-B-Que place - haven't tried new place yet.

A great smorgasbord! Had the chicken (of course), very good, ribs were also very good. Catfish great as was Mac n Cheese. They now have a small selection of cold beer. It has bee 4 years since we were here last and the decor is new and rearranged a bit but all else is still great.
