Above the run of the mill buffets. Fred's is part of a chain but there are slight differences between this location and the one in Plant City. Love Fred's fried chicken! I think they make up for charging lower Buffet prices with expensive drinks.

As one reviewer previously stated, " there is a reason for the wait". We live in another state and when planning to be in Tampa I told the family, " I want to go back to Freds", and was not disappointed! We waited about 45 mins, had a party of 7 and it's so true, so worth the wait. Southern food, cooked southern style with a seemingly endless selection. We had the most gracious and fun server, Marcy, what a delight! If you're in the area please stop in, again, its well worth it!

We took my mom here for her birthday lunch and everyone enjoyed it. We got there about 2:30 pm and it wasn't too crowded, plenty of empty tables. We walked right up to the hostess stand with no wait at all. The hostess, for lack of a better word, was very crabby, and seemed very bothered that we had a party of 6. We noticed she was unpleasant to everyone, so we didn't take it too personally, but it did make a bad first impression. Our server, Becky, was fabulous. Everyone else was so friendly and the food was wonderful. Our family left stuffed and happy.

This was the second year i visited Freds. Superb southern food, so much choice. Great atmosphere and very attentive staff keeping our drinks topped up. A must to visit next time i am in Florida.

Buffets are not usually my favorite way to dine...but for Fred's I make an exception! Breakfast was exceptional and being able to have fried green tomatoes for breakfast plus one of the best cinnamon rolls ever was a treat.
I understand that dinner at Fred's is equally good. It is a family-owned and operated business and that is probably why the food is so good.
Our waitress was excellent.
