Buffet’s usually get a bad rap, and with good reason. Most of them offer large quantities of food at a decent price, but the food is usually two grades above slop level. I've always held to the idea that a high quality Vegas style buffet would do well in Orlando. One with quality selections of chef carved meats and live action chef stations with enticing sides like one might find at the Bellagio. Fred’s Market isn't quite on that level, but what it does do, it does fairly well.
 

Fred's Market Restaurant serves up a taste of farm to plate freshness, with food that is slowly cooked in a natural and unprocessed way. The restaurant aims to provide a cozy atmosphere full of warmth and fun. It's southern comfort food that's pure and hearty all the way to the core.
 

The buffet for dinner is full of traditional southern fare like Fried Chicken, Pot Roast, Pulled Pork, Chicken Pot Pie and a host of sides like Mac & Cheese, Collard Greens, Mashed Potatoes, Fried Green Tomatoes, and of course an extensive salad and soup bar with a dessert bar as well. Fred’s also offers a weekday and weekend breakfast buffet as well, with biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and you can even get the famous fried chicken in the AM.

Fred's Market took over the recently closed Romano’s Macaroni Grill. aside of a few touches here and there, the inside and outside is relatively unchanged from the previous tenant.

The salad bar has something for everyone.

There are plenty of fresh fruits and an assortment of fruit and vegetable salads on the buffet. I really enjoyed the broccoli salad, as well as the apple raisin salad.

All of the food I tried was pretty good, but the Fried Chicken here is the star of the show. Dare I say…it could be some of the best fried chicken in Central Florida?

A variety of southern comfort side dishes.

It doesn't get any more southern than banana pudding, red velvet cake and pumpkin pie.

Here is a loaded plate with fried chicken, mac & cheese, mashed potatoes and a fried green tomato.

Overall, I was very impressed with the food at Fred’s Market. All of the food was fresh and seasoned very well. If you are looking for some good southern comfort food at an affordable price in a family friendly atmosphere, stop by Fred’s Market.
 

Fred’s is open Monday to Saturday from 7:00am to 9:00pm, and Sunday from 8:00am to 9:00pm

I always enjoy restaurants and bars that really try to go for an authentic as you can get style with food and decor. When it comes to Irish food in Orlando and surrounding areas we have a few smaller locations like Harp and Celt that do a decent job at providing that atmosphere and traditional food cravings from the homeland. Of course there is the larger Raglan Road at downtown Disney and Meg O'Malleys Irish Pub in Melbourne FL, but I have yet to find somewhere in between these until I visited Liam Fitzpatrick’s.

Located at the Colonial Town Park Shopping Center in Lake Mary, Liam Fitzpatrick’s, is carrying on the two hundred year old tradition of a great Irish Pub with a hearty mix of great food and drink, warm and friendly hospitality, good music and great conversation. Liam’s was inspired by the owners visits to Ireland and by the wonderful times they experienced there. Their desire was to bring the spirit of that great culture of food and friendship to Lake Mary where upon stepping through their doors you can feel as though you are with friends and ready to enjoy a great time.

Outside of Liam’s, you will be drawn in by the classic exterior, which resembles a traditional Irish pub. Once inside, the Irish pub decor takes things up a notch with elaborate rich wood furnishings and accents. Two separate pub areas, front of house and back, offer fully stocked bars with perfect pours of Guinness or whatever you may be in the mood for. The inside is very spacious and open with plenty of seating. There is also a private dining room which is available for pretty much any type of event you would like to have.

Liam Fitzpatrick’s is lively and festive at anytime of the day. There is live music almost any night of the week and Saturday nights feature dueling pianos. There are yearly block parties which include St. Patrick’s Day, Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween, New Year’s Eve and many more keeping Liam’s largely involved in the local community and always a happening place.

The menu here consists of your traditional Irish favorites like Shepherd's Pie, Corned Beef & Cabbage and Fish & Chips. However, the creative team at Liam’s, has put together some additional mouth watering items with an Irish twist. Some of these items include the Galway Burger, an Irish Cheese Steak, Curry Chicken and Lobster Mac & Cheese. Of course it goes without saying, Guinness and a selection of other craft beers and cocktails are available to help wash down all of this delicious food.


The Baileys Irish Coffee is a great pick me up at the end of your day, and a “Perfect Pour” of Guinness in a proper 20 ounce tulip pint glass is sure to satisfy your thirst.

Scotch Eggs are pretty common to find at most Irish pubs, but Liam’s has spiced up this classic appetizer by rolling the eggs in chorizo sausage before breading them. This was a unique twist that I really enjoyed.

Although not a “traditional dish” the Apple Walnut Salad was outstanding. This salad is made with baby spinach, walnuts, apples, goat cheese, and dried cranberries tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette. For an additional charge, you can have grilled or blackened chicken or shrimp added to this salad. We opted for the blackened shrimp, and the savory flavors blended well with the sweetness of salad.

The Corned Beef and Cabbage is roasted in beer for ten hours and is served with cabbage, boiled red potatoes and a horseradish Dijon sauce.

This is a proper fish & chips with jumbo pieces of haddock fried in special recipe batter served with tartar sauce and mushy peas.

The Shepherd’s Pie at Liam’s is made with a blend of ground beef and lamb with carrots, onions, peas, celery and corn baked with a cap of mashed potatoes. For an added bonus, you can have them top it off with melted cheese.

For an Irish American twist, the Galway Burger is Angus beef, topped with Irish Whiskey glazed onions, lettuce, tomato and imported Irish porter stout cheese (which sometimes doesn’t make it through customs) and Guinness BBQ sauce. This burger is loaded with flavor and does not disappoint. You can get a number of side items with this burger and we chose the sweet potato fries.

Bread & Butter Pudding is a traditional Irish bread pudding made with raisins, served with whiskey creme anglaise and is ridiculously good.


The Baileys Cream Cheesecake is a signature cheesecake made with Baileys Irish Cream, topped with chocolate and caramel. It is very rich but very delicious.

Whether it’s a business lunch, a gathering with old friends or a celebration with new friends, Liam’s provides a great setting for your visit. With a wide ranging menu of great home cooked food to suit every taste and pouring some of the best beers and wines in the world, Liam Fitzpatrick’s delivers an authentic Irish experience in warm hospitality that can only be described as brilliant!
