    I like the concept, the food was good, our waitress excellent and the bartender helpful. But the host stand left something to be desired. I was meeting friends and wanted to be in the right place (I didn't see the restaurant name since I came from the side - past dirty dishes stacked at a visible busing station) and I asked at the host stand the name. The man yawned, and while covering his mouth said the name. I asked him to repeat what he said and I got an eyeroll. Really? I almost left, but then thought I'd talk to the manager, and finally decided to relax and get over it. That's when the bartender was very helpful, and friendly, and he turned my mood back to good. Honestly though, I'm going to think twice before going back.

    I was disappointed my drink came so late into dinner. I was told they made a mistake and had to make it again, I was hoping they would compensate for this. Overall the experience was a delight and the waiter was knowledgable.

    arrived 5 mins early and had to wait 10 mins for table, 'hosts' distracted and impersonal, seater took us to an awful table and couldn't understand why I said I wouldn't sit there, then entered into a 3 way conversation with host and seater re why there wasn't a better table available when there clearly were. Eventually seater who was at a loss asked if we wanted to see a manager, manager showed up and WITHOUT A WORD of any kind showed us to an acceptable table . waitress not too sharp or focused, drinks took for ever to arrive, waitress recommended 2 servings of pretzels to start which were way too much, shared pizza as a main, would have been better from papa johns, founding farmers going down hill, would seem you also, menu way to long

    I'd heard good things and made a reservation here for my birthday. Service was very slow. Server took our drink orders instantly before anyone even had a breath to look at the drink list - my mom asked about whether they had chianti (since she didn't have time to look at the wine list) "Is that a brand of wine?" the server asked. It was so loud, I have to think he just couldn't hear her. Came back at least three times each time with no drinks, no drinks, took an appetizer order but still no drinks. Finally drinks, finally apps, finally he takes the entrée order. Food was okay. But the restaurant was so loud and distracting it was nearly impossible to have a conversation. That said the staff were super nice, just disorganized.

    i couldn't finish my meal (which is unusual for me) but i appreciate the big portions they serve. the food is great for the price and high quality. i came here thinking it would be different from founding farmers but didn't notice much difference. overall, same great quality and food. just wish it was a little bit quieter inside.

    I've been to this restaurant several times, and I've been very pleased with most of my experiences. However, the last time that I went there, it was not quite as good. The food was still very good, albeit a little over priced, but the service this time was terrible. The waitress was very slow to take our order, and not very enthusiastic or happy. We ordered the guacamole, which is fantastic, but it didn't come with enough chips. We asked for extra chips, which turned out to be an extra $2.50, but the waitress didn't say anything. I was a little disappointed with the poor service this time, and I will definitely be trying different restaurants instead of FF&B in the future. Also the music was a little too loud.

    The hostesses weren't friendly or accommodating at all, the place was incredibly loud, the waiter recommended the rock sole which was amazingly bland (basically, a piece of fried fish on grits with some peas on top), the waiter forgot to bring the lemon wedges we requested for our water, we were continually having to wait for anything from him, whether it was a menu, to order, to get our coffee, etc. And the prices weren't great, either ($24 for my boring lunch, $30 for brunch). Just about the only thing this place has going for it is its location on the waterfront (but even then there's not much of a view from its position in the back of the courtyard), which is the only reason I can assume people eat here.

    I don't know the diet of the farmers, bakers or fishers that they are "working" with -- but they must enjoy fried food. Seriously, no regard to fresh ingredients -- every dish was fried. The crab came from Thailand -- it is early September I am sure you can still get crab from the Bay. I knew once I saw the giant menu - we were in trouble. Too many choices for a kitchen to produce anything of quality.

    I made a reservation for 12:15 on Saturday assuming we'd have a simple lunch. Evidently the restaurant offers a buffet brunch on Saturdays only, no exceptions. This wasn't advertised anywhere- I had checked menus online prior to reserving and looked subsequently. We didn't want $30 buffet and were pressed for time, but there's nothing else in that area so we were SOL.

    This was fun outing and the only problem was the noise level. We got seating by a window and that helped. I liked the idea of the kids under six eating for free and the tea being included with the brunch fare. Although the price was steep, my husband loved all the food!!! Definitely a man's place.

    I am a great fan of Founding Farmers. While this is similar, it has a more limited menu which didn't offer as much interest to me. FFB is more like Pub food -- pizza, burgers, are the largest section of the menu. The jambalaya was good, don't get me wrong, but I didnt find as many exciting choices.

  • Disappointed! Poor Lunch!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 9/8/2014
    The Fishers Fry Combo Platter of seafood was over cooked and the quality of seafood was poor. Going to Long John Silver's or Captain D's would have been more satisfying. The scallops seemed like okra rather than scallops, and there was only one tiny piece of fish. The Cioppino was extremely salty, and the mussels seemed to be all empty shells. The Ahi Tuna & Lemon Aioli sandwich was a true disappointment. It was random chunks of ahi tuna, that did not work very well for a sandwich. Take one bite and everything else falls out of it. None of us enjoyed our food. The ambiance and service was OK, but we were very disappointed with the food. I expected much more from Farmers, Fishers, Bakers. Their weekend brunch is much better.

    Farmers Fishers Bakers had a great variety of entrée choices and an excellent arrangement of tastes and spices to fit all members of our party's needs. Peanut cider spice for the cole slaw was particularly tasty. The sushi bar was a bit sparse but for entrees the portions were more than adequate. The banana split was to die for and definitely worth the price. We all plan to eat again at Farmers Fishers Bakers and look forward to new trying new items.

    I'd say the food here is just about on par with their sister restaurants, Founding Farmers. I had the seared tuna but it was definitely not of the best quality although cooked as stated in the menu. Seafood Jambalaya was rather tasteless, fried onion rings were very good. Noise level was deafening even with the walls lined with old tire treads. Would not rush back unless dining outside.

    The location is cool. The design is fun. The food was delicious from the appetizers through dessert. Almost everything on the menu is made fresh by the restaurant. I have many "favorite" foods and everything I had here is reaching towards the top of that list. I couldn't recommend this place more. I'll definitely be back. The only one negative comment I have is that the main room is quite loud when the place is full.

    The food here is great, and the menu chock-full of choices, but the list of positives stop there. While in theory, you can have a scenic view of the Potomac and the fountain of the Georgetown Harbour area, we were shoved in a windowless section of the restaurant, right by the kitchen. The server was still able to ignore us, surprisingly, in this location. When we were genuinely curious about what some of the menu items were, he was clueless. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks from the bar. The food was excellent, though, and even though there isn't a kids menu, there are several choices that were pleasing to my children like chicken tenders and pizza. Good place to take houseguests, if you are patient!

    A group of 4 of us had made reservations for an early dinner at 5:00. Restaurant was huge, but a bit noisy, however we did have great table service. Menu was extensive and they even had a vegetarian menu for my hubby who got the "best veggie" Rueben in town. We ordered the soft pretzels which came out with 3 dipping sauces: pimento, cheese, and ginger wasabi. All 3 were great. I had the fried scallops which were okay because they came out warm, not hot. (I know they were busy). Brother order the fried chicken which he loved and mom order the white fish which used the same breading as the scallops. All in all, good fried food but next time I'll order the seared scallops. No dessert was ordered.

    Love this place, but I've had several bad experiences now with seating/service. After arriving right on time for our reservation, we were not seated until almost 20 minutes after our scheduled time. Amazing food- probably one of the best brunches around- but it's frustrating to start with bad taste in mouth from late seating (this is now the second time this has happened). Server we had was friendly and hard working but struggled to keep up because restaurant was severely understaffed, so we felt bad for him and certainly didn't fault him for slower than normal service. Overall, a fantastic place to go on weekends for a fresh, tasty, and unique brunch. Just make sure you have time to wait and come prepared to be patient.

    went to brunch here for the second time. food was terrible. hot selections were cold, salads were soggy and there were many options which were unclear what they were (great for my Vegitarian friend trying what we thought was artichoke dip but instead was crab). I've been here three other times for dinner which was much better. not worth the price for brunch. many other good options in the area instead.

    We were seat promptly upon arrival (1030) and our server, tom, was very nice and accommodating. It was my MIL's birthday and they knew from the reservation I had made but made a point to make her feel special. The food was great, although they ran out of the garlic sausage shortly after we arrived. The lines weren't bad but people could not figure out how to use them. Nothing was labeled so there was a lot of guessing what was what. The desserts were just ok...some had been there for a while and some were just bland. Overall a good place to go back to.
