    Place delivers good quality food and the location is awesome. Their ongoing issue is the lack of proper management to "manage" the number of people they can take. You will hope they use the opentable software to help them do this. Today for the third time, I found myself waiting almost 30 minutes even though I had a reservation and confirmed by phone just 3 days ago. Very disappointing.

    I've been to FFB for lunch and dinner, and it was recommended I try the brunch as well. I love buffet brunches, you get a different variety of things to try. The food was tasty and I would go back again. I appreciate there were regular items from the menu and there were waiters walking around with other foods to try that were not on the buffet. All-in-all, I think it was a success. However, it would nice if they did bottomless mimosas. That would be the icing on the cake.

    Brunch was decent. I know people love it, perhaps just for the wide variety of food, which is great and offers something for everyone. I just don't like mass produced food, which is what you're going to get given its a buffet and the restaurant has a lot if tabletops. Id recommend trying it for yourself, but I'll personally be looking for somewhere else.

    Two of us ordered the scallops and risotto. We were thoroughly enjoying it when our server informed us the chef was dissatisfied with the size of the scallops and therefore, would be sending more to our table. No charge to us. When the new plates arrived, the scallops were even more beautiful and flavorful than the first. Then the chef herself arrived, apologized, explained what had improved, and promised her kitchen would do better. It was an amazing experience.

    has a nice brunch selection, i liked how the came around with various selections that were not at the buffet. Food was a little bland but that is to be expected at a buffet. The eggs Benedict and the cinnamon rolls are to die for!! i would definitely e back to try their lunch and dinner menu. The service was amazing!

    My hubby and I went here and I found the service to be amazing. But I had the fish with grits. .....ummmmm. no bueno. No taste and hardly flavorful which isn't how Founding Farmers food is. ..... maybe it was a bad night idk. My hubby had burger sliders and they were good.

    We ate at this restaurant for our daughter's 21st Birthday. We had a reservation for 12 and it was for late in the evening. Most of her friends were late getting there but the restaurant did not say anything negative about it. The food was delicious and they had some fun large bowl drinks that made the Birthday festive. The only negative was our waiter was nice but not very attentive, he especially checked out towards the end but the manager more than made up for it. he was very apologetic and comped one of our big drinks and did not charge us a cutting fee for our Birthday treats we brought in. Overall it was a great experience and the food was excellent! We will definitely return!

    The layout of Farmers Fishers Bakers lends itself to an energetic dining experience. There's a mix of large and small groups, as well as couples. Typically a mid-30s crowd. The menu is expansive -- lots and lots to choose from, which makes it great for a large group. There's no way you'll leave unsatisfied. That being said, the food will not blow your socks off, but it's good enough to come back. I went for my birthday, and they messed up two of our orders, but the manager was very generous and not only covered the meals but offered complimentary dessert to everyone in my party. Great customer service is paramount, and for that reason, I'll dine here again.

  • Get Rid of the Fish Pot

    Dined on 10/2/2014
    Our server was excellent (even though it was only his second day!). The Fisherman's Steamed Pot is terrible. The tiniest piece of fish I've ever seen, and bland to boot. The broth was flavorful (star anise) but the vegetables were anemic and disappointing. I guess I need to stick to the Farmer's Daughter sandwich, which never disappoints!

    The atmosphere is very very loud, but upbeat. The service was great! The food; however, was very disappointing. I love the idea of food that is not processed, but for goodness sakes, how about some seasoning? Herbs could have went a long way. And it was cold! Not just mine, but the others I was with also had cold food with lack of taste. We did tell the waitress and she said she was surprised. That was that. It is moderately expensive, but still for the price I would have expected tasty food. This was definitely not tasty. I ordered pizza and it was the worst pizza I have ever ate in my life. Three pieces of basil and that was the extent of the seasonings. I would not go back.

    3rd trip to FFB on a Sunday @ lunchtime, finally got it right. 1st time: I didn't know to ask specifically for the buffet option. 2nd: tho I was told when I made the res it was during brunch, staff told me on arrival that time was too late for that (tho did semi-try to accommodate). 3rd: res made a month in advance for 11:30am -- unquestionably brunch time. I wish FFB had a wheelchair available, but they otherwise helpfully gave info to move a person w/ disability. Our waiter was OUTSTANDING. Quick with water and calling over the bread; wasn't pushy about our ordering drinks; when we did order a punch, brought an individual bowl so the PWD didn't have to lean way forward to reach the big bowl's straw. Food good & fresh except paella.

    I'm a huge fan of brunch, so I had to try out this brunch buffet. I treated my partner for his birthday. I loved the cinnamon rolls and the french toast with bananas foster especially! The hummus and pita bread was also very good. I wish there were some staple breakfast foods that weren't there: breakfast potatoes, bacon. Neither of us really enjoyed our drinks--he got a mimosa and I got one of the handmade sodas. He said his tasted like orangina with champagne, and mine tasted mainly of seltzer fizz with just a hint of actual flavor. The actual food was very good though, and I would return.

    My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary dinner and had a phenomenal meal. The food was absolutely delicious (crab dip appetizer is a must) and ordered very tasty cocktails (the organic cucumber delight is very refreshing!). Our waiter was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. My only complaint is where we were seated having made a reservation a month in advance with requested seating, but definitely didn't spoil the evening. Will definitely return!

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Our table was one of those that gets caught in a battle for who does not want to serve it. The waitperson was on a break (do I need to know this?). It took for ever to order and the waitperson that finally arrived said, "I guess I am your server (for now)." We ordered drinks, a can of coke arrived without a glass...the appetizer was finished and our main order was never taken. Then someone showed up and said "I am off break now..." We ordered a side of bread and only 1 of three pieces arrived. Then half the order came and we waited for the rest. In the interim, the table was located in a foot path for the wait staff and we were constantly, constantly being bumped. The table was never cleared off, but hey, somehow the check arrived.

    I was greatly looking forward to this experience but was amazed that the buffet was the only option for brunch. The ambience and the noise level were very reminiscent of a high school cafeteria. I would return to give it another try if they offered an a la carte brunch menu otherwise may give it another try for dinner. Staff was pleasant but not efficient. Location is awesome!

    The food was just okay, but the most disappointing and outrageous thing were the drinks. Order martinis that was served in the smallest glass the restaurant had. The martini had no taste, the organic vodka was blend but what really got us was the charge of $4.00 to upgrade the drink to a martini. Will not be back.

    The extensive menu seems a bit overwhelming at first, but all we tried from wings, to Brussels sprout salad, pizza and seafood was great. Honey pot chicken was superb and highly recommended. Fried wings were crispy but not greasy. Service was also great- we had a super friendly and knowledgeable waitress- all her recommendations were spot on and service was fast.

    Went to farmers fishers bakers on a friend's recommendation. We were not disappointed. The waiting staff were all very friendly and helpful. The menu had a good variety and I was particularly impressed by the vegan / veggie specials. I went for a pizza which was fine, though not amazing (way too much cheese). but overall very happy and would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

    My grandparents are from lower Alabama and came to visit in the "big city." We had Sunday dinner at FFB. We ordered cocktails and pretzel app - the bbq mustard and the drinks were ridiculously fresh. She had chicken tenders, he had fried shrimp, and I had the lemon sauteed scallops. I recommend all three. Plus, our server was great.
