    I live in Arlington and so I usually frequent the locations in DC. We chose this location and we were disappointed. My friend ordered the chicken and waffles and found the waffle bland and the string beans "not great." I ordered short ribs with mashed potatoes and collard greens. The short rib was 50% fat! The mashed potatoes and collard greens were cold and the collard greens were dry. We were very disappointed and do not plan to return to this location.

    I visited w/ my mom, husband and 3yr old. We had a1:15 reservation, we arrived around 1:10; when I checked in with the hostess she told us that it would be about a 15 min wait for our table. Twenty min. passed and I walked back and ask how much longer she said again about 15 more min. We were seated about 5 minutes after that. In all we waited about 25 minutes WITH a reservation, which is what the wait was, for walk in customers! What's the benefit of having a reservation when you still have to wait? Also there is no kids menu or even smaller portions for kids. No kid friendly cups, my daughter was given her juice in a coffee to-go cup with a straw! Overall the food was good with generous portions and I will definitely eat here again.

    The food was very good, but service was slow. While it was a very busy Sunday, I would have expected they were used to it. Also it was extremely noisy (no sound absorbing materials on walls or floor), so it is not the place to carry on a serious conversation.

    although the food was quite good, we found the service to be very bad. For example, our table ordered pancakes and French toast, which were brought to the table with no syrup. We requested syrup at the time, and the server said of course, but then never brought the syrup. 10 minutes after the food was delivered and numerous attempts to gain the attention of a wait staff, I walked over to a service station for the waiters to pick up a bottle of syrup that had been used by another table. Of course by this time, the food was cold. Another server was pouring coffee and I raised my hand to ask for a refill- it was clear he looked at me, but then he turned and walked away from the table to put the coffee pot down. I will not return given this

    This trip to Founding Farmers proved excellent customer service in that my friend who is on a stringent elimination diet due to trying to diagnose causes to medical symptom thought she could only eat a bowl of fruit after looking at the menu online. However when we got there our waiter, Andrew, after finding out what was going on took the time to get a list from her and discuss with the kitchen to find out exactly what else she could eat. It ended up there was more and she had a lovely first time eating there and would not be afraid to come back.

    We are gin drinkers, so were looking forward to trying the fabulous creative gin concoctions at the bar. Excellent! Our food was also first rate - especially loved the warn beignets for dessert. The restaurant was busy and the noise level is high - probably not the best venue for intimate conversation. Also, when we arrived for our 7:15 reservation we were told they were just seating the 7:00's , so would be a few minutes late..... A few minutes turned into an hour and we were not seated until 8:15. This would have been a major problem if we had a babysitter at home or some such time constraint, but since we were free birds that night we just went with it and had fun at the bar. Definitely want to come back.

    Spectacular food in an okay environment. The upstairs looks a little dingy and the entire restaurant is quite loud, but I've never been disappointed by the food here. Always delicious, and the service is always considerate, especially if you have any food allergy/restriction issues.

    This restaurant consistently delivers high quality, locally sourced and fresh food. I have not had anything here that I wouldn't recommend. The salad with avocadoes and dates is scrumptious, the pan fried cornbread is delicious, and the Southern Fried Chicken and Pot Roast are great.

    The food at Founding Farmers has always been delicious for us, and service has always been okay or good. However, we love custom cocktails, and were pretty disappointed this particular evening. The Martinez was OK (maybe just not my taste), but Nice Coat went overboard on sourness (although not quite undrinkable), and Chief's Scorpion tasted like fruity cough syrup. In short, whoever was mixing the drinks wasn't doing them properly.

    Love the mac and cheese, biscuits too! Great selection of beers on tap. We (group of 5) ordered table biscuits, but there was an expected 20-minute backlog for biscuits...who knew that could happen. So we decided to forgo the biscuits...and then were offered some later on the house once they were available -- fantastic!! All main dishes were first rate, as usual, perhaps chicken and waffles hits the highest note. Such welcoming and considerate staff team, one and all from start to finish, made this a fun and memorable visit.

    This was the fourth time I dined at Founding Farmers since May, because the first time I went it was spectacular. I want to take my colleagues there. Unfortunately the last two times the drinks were subpar and the food was not prepared correctly. We returned one dark and stormy because the ginger beer was essentially carbonated water and it took nearly 15 minutes to replace it. Worse still when two out of three steaks were returned because they were not prepared as ordered no one from the management team delivered the food or came to check on us. Our server was completely unapologetic. Dreadful, embarrassing (since I recommended the place so highly) experience, will not go back.

    Dinner outside was wonderful. We chose to eat outside because inside is always VERY loud… not just noisy… LOUD. It is better upstairs and much better outside. We had a time constraint and our server, Allie, made sure we were promptly served and done in plenty of time. Food was excellent, as usual.

    Why it is that so many places choose to foresake interiors and insist on hard surfaces throughout. Exposed pipes and vents are so outdated. Yet, this is exactly what FF has done to itself. The food was good enough, though the drinks and wine are way over-priced and not that notable ($12/18 for okay rose & chardonnay!!). We could not wait to exit so that our hearing and conversation would return to normal. We'll chalk this place off of our future lists.

    We eat here regularly and they changes the menu so there are no longer any descriptions. At most restaurants this isn't a problem, but founding often add new twists to their plates. For example, my husband and I each had a hash for brunch. I order the beef goat cheese. It was cooked perfectly and was very good except it was topped with a sauce that had a lot of Mustard and I HATE mustard. My husband also hates mustard so we would have ordered differently if we had known. Otherwise we enjoy FF and take our out of town guests there.

    Had a great breakfast with part of the family (wife and son). The steak and eggs were fantastic. The scrambled eggs were the best eggs ever. I am sure they had a lot of butter in them to get them that good. the steak along with the eggs was prepared perfectly. The eggs dragged thru the garden was also excellent and my wife's french toast was very good too. Of course we had the Begnets(sp?) and they were great. Andy our server was also outstanding. Thorough. Pleasant. Top Notch.

    Although the building has underground parking, there's no entrance into the restaurant from the lobby or an awning you can walk under. It was pouring when we arrived, and we got soaked running from the lobby to the restaurant entrance. Service was a little slow; however, our mood improved when our delicious food arrived.

    The food was terrific if you could wait for service from a very disinterested staff. The $12 Bloody Marys were sold as pepper infused Vodka... but reality is that it was loaded with cracked pepper which made it undrinkable without swallowing a pile of pepper. I was a bartender in my past and I would never make them this poorly.... terrible.... and for $12? SO disappointed that they wouldn't refund me. In any case... go for the food... drinking there is pricey and not worth it... but the food is comfort style fresh food...

    Bottom line: overpriced and they do not know how to cook vegetables. - way way undercooked to the point of almost being raw - and I don't like eating raw green beans. A dinner for five cost $270 which includes tip and three bears.

    I've been to FF before and would say the service was not on par with the other visits. It all seemed kind of rushed. Our server never checked in on how our food was. My shrimp had pieces of shell still on it and when they're smothered in gravy/grits there was no way for me to know until I ate it. Gross. Turned me off to the dish. Overall, it's a cute restaurant but the noise level on the second floor is too much. I could hear the entire conversation of the table next to us and barely could get a sentence out without repeating myself. For the price of entrees I would want to feel less like I'm in a TGIFridays.

    Many of my co-workers have been to this restaurant, but I had not previously joined them. A new director recommended this as a close-by location with great gluten-free options. They were very flexible with the "edits" I desired for my order. I was surprised it took so long for orders to come out; I expected fewer people at 2PM in the restaurant, but we did have a party of 9. I wish there were a bit more detail in the menu; I kept trying to avoid un-welcome items in my salad which were not listed. I neglected to say "no avocado," so I spent the first few minutes of my meal fishing out avocado, which I REALLY HATE. And besides wishing there were more ice in the water, I had no other regrets.

    It was Labor Day at 6:00 p.m. Glad we had a reservation ... our table however was in a very noisy spot and hot ... couldn't feel the AC and we didn't get ice in our water to begin with. But our server was great and made our time there pleasant in spite of the noise level. One of the four of us had the rock fish ($29, a little overpriced) which was overcooked and the broccolini was way undercooked. Two of us had the chicken, one Southern and one Northern ... we agreed the Northern was the crispier but it was a little overdone. Fish and chips were satisfactory. Felt we were there at the wrong time on the wrong day, but weren't thrilled enough with anything to plan a return trip in the near future.

    Founding Farmers is a great restaurant in Montgomery County off of 270. I visit this restaurant a lot and every time I visit I always have a pleasant experience. As Founding Farmers becomes more popular, its becoming harder to get in even with a reservation however, once you get it, its worth the wait! My favorite is the Shrimp and Grits and the Ultimate Seafood dish. You cannot go wrong with either of these two dishes. Also, the home made Ice Cream and Cakes are excellent! My only regret is I wish they had a loyalty card because I eat there at least 6 times a month.

    I've been to this Founding Farmers location before and have always come away a happy customer - and this visit followed the same pattern. Because it was Labor Day around noon, the restaurant was understandably very crowded. Due to the crowd, our server didn't come by the table as quickly or as frequently as usual, but he tended to our needs very well and stopped by enough to refill our water and coffee. The food was as good as always - I ordered the farmers breakfast with the applewood smoked bacon (so good!) My girlfriend got the Beets and Goat Cheese hash - which was great, except for the fact that they didn't put any goat cheese in it...big bummer, but it still tasted good.

    I have heard nothing but great reviews about this restaurant so I was quite excited to try out their brunch. Unfortunately, I will not be going back. The service was very bad. Our party of four was ignored and our sides (that came with our meal) never showed up to our table. Additionally, the server brought us the wrong check and because of the infrequent visits to our table, we ate our meals without water or refills. The food was tasty though. I would like to purchase the cookbook.

    We love Founding Farmers - MoCo as the food is always excellent and the servers are extra helpful and friendly. Our complaint is that you always (and I do mean always in our experience of going there many times) have to wait for a table despite showing up on time for your reservation. In this most recent experience the wait was 25 minutes after arriving right on time for a reservation made several weeks in advance to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. Yes, we love the place and yes, we will no doubt come back again, but just be prepared to grow irritable while you wait as Founding Farmers has some serious flaws with their models for calculating table turnover.

    Go for the fried green tomatoes, crispy and unique. Highly recommend the southern fried chicken. My friends had the ravioli and crab cakes. They raved about it.

    We went there for dinner - as usual, great food. I had forgotten that the menu is sparse in terms of descriptions, so we had ordered sides that we didn't really need - our entrees came with sides that weren't listed on the menu. So my suggestion is to ask the server more about entrees you're interested in ordering. Also, our server was great, but he wasn't getting the back up he needed in terms of beverages so it took a long time to get our drinks. It was very crowded.
