We visited with a large group. The food was awesome. The service was great and they kept up with beverage refills and keeping the table cleared.

An excellent buffet with a wide selection of meats and vegetables, as well as a good salad bar and a dessert bar.

We have been here 3 times now and it was very good every time ! They change some selections daily and keep some as staples for every day. Very nice selection of home cooked foods, nice salad bar and desert bar too . We grabbed a flyer so we would know the ' featured food ' changes for each day of the week. Example--lasagna is not an everyday choice--just certain days.
There was only one incident I didn't care for. The big spoons ( 2 ) had fallen into the peaches on the salad bar, and I brought it to the attention of a worker, who did not immediately address it. She said " oh yeah--we will have to get different spoons for that ". NOT--oh we will throw those out and start with fresh ones. I don't know if that was done or not. She should have expressed that. So did they throw them out or just replace spoons ???? I mean, people had their hands all over those spoons, so I hope they were dumped. ? Other than that, we have been very happy with the service and cleanliness of the restaurant. We will be going back !

My wife and I were visiting Lakeland for the State basketball championships and her sister who lives in Lakeland took us to Fred's. You could tell by the yummy smell as soon as you walked in the food would be awesome! None of us were disappointed and we all went back for seconds. There was nothing on the Buffett that was not awesome! So glad my sister in law took us here.

We stopped in for breakfast and wasn’t disappointed at all. This was the 1st time we went there for breakfast and it was well worth the 30 minute wait. We will definitely stop in again when around the Lakeland area. The staff was super friendly and kept the tables cleaned.
