Description: Fred's Market Restaurant serves up a special taste of farm-to-plate freshness, on our MarketTableTM. Our food is slowly cooked in a natural and unprocessed way, served in a cozy atmosphere full of warmth and fun. We don't compromise on quality or character whether it's the ingredients in our dishes or the attitudes of our people. It's southern comfort that's pure and hearty all the way to the core and it's all found at Fred's Market Restaurant.

The tea was fantastic, just like my mama used to make - and honestly, I could just picture someone's grandma in the kitchen making this food - it was that good!!!!

Whenever we want a big meal with all the vegetable choices we go to Fred's. We have never been disappointed and look forward to each visit as a real treat.

This was an unplanned dinner stop. Torrential rains hit I-4 during peak travel time and we decided to wait it out and get some dinner. Fred's was nearby and that's where we went.

OMG, what a great find. We were seated promptly and our server (shout out to CYNTHIA) arrived to give us the dinner options - buffet (either one trip or several trips) or order from the menu. She also took our drink orders and before we got up from the table she was already back with water and sweet tea (hey, it's Southern).

As mentioned, we were there at dinnertime, and occasionally buffet kitchens have trouble keeping the serving line items filled. Not here, everything was in good supply despite the eager diners.

It's Southern fare in every way. Country fried steak (a Thursday special) was tender and tasty. Ribs (fall off the bone tender). Corn casserole. Collards, Fried green tomatoes, etc. I never even got to the salad section. Or to the dessert section.
