We were seated within a couple of minutes of arriving. We really enjoyed most of our food and drink choices. We had pork dumplings, and chicken spring rolls as an appetizer, and they were delicious. I ordered the mojito which was unique with bitters added, but it was very tasty. My son and husband ordered their ginger ale and really like it. It's got lots of fresh ginger taste, very refreshing. I had the scallops meuniere, my daughter had the cedar plank salmon, my husband had fish and chips and my son ordered the meatball parm sandwich. Unfortunately when our meal arrived, they brought a chicken parm sandwich for my son, and it was really overdone. He asked about getting what he ordered, it came when the rest of us we just about done. His meatball parm was really underdone, and because it was a pork and beef blend, he decided to not eat it at the restaurant, and to take it home to cook it more when he has it as leftovers. When he had it for lunch the next day after taking the sandwich apart to cook the meatballs more, he discovered it didn't have any cheese on it at all. The service was very slow, it seemed as if our server was spread pretty thin. Our server was nice, but it took a long time to order and receive food. We brought desserts home, and enjoyed them. I would return because of the huge menu and we enjoyed most of our food, but if service was really slow again, I would likely not return again.

Food tasted average, nothing impressive but it wasn’t bad. Not really worth the price in my opinion. Service was a little slow but it was a busy day.

The service was terrible. Our server was not attentive and water and drinks took very long to come to the table. Requested a sauce to come to the table and it never arrived.

Service was a 1 star for sure.

Food was very tasty.

This was our first visit after friends recommendation. Our server was excellent, but the food was bland to taste.
To note: our friends went to Sunday Brunch, where as we had dinner.

We went on Mother's Day and had to wait too long to be seated, the greeter said that the person who she told to seat us must have dropped the paper with my name on it. We only had seconds to get a plate of the brunch because they were putting it away. Our server was excellent. We got food to take home which was totally disgusting, the crap dip was full of artichoke but hardly had any crab meat and my friends shrimp scampi was nasty.
I will go again but not on a holiday and only for the brunch.

The service and foods are pretty good. They need to be more prepared especially weekend brunch and the middle of our brunch they ran out a lot of foods and drinks.

Great service, but the food was not hot. The catfish was tiny bite size pieces and the desserts were lacking freshness

I took myself and the ladies in my life out for Mother’s Day. Our waitress was very nice but of course it was busy which sowed service a bit. The buffet style brunch was awesome but the portions did seem a bit small as the servers put the items in a plate for you.

I love the idea that you can also order from the kitchen as well. Super bummed we could t try certain desserts because they ran out. Overall I would go back it has a great feel and the food was tasteful.

Mothers' Day Brunch 2021, coming out of the pandemic, was excellent. The buffet food area has been relocated to the left of the restaurant with screens set up and servers preparing the plates for you. F& D brunch was excellent as always!

Our waitress, Hope, was very nice, but very late with everything. We're talking about over 20 minutes for a beer. Moreover, food was rushed despite taking a long time. Steak was 2 temps below what I requested (rare instead of medium) and my wife's Yankee Pot Roast had nearly-uncooked potatoes in the mix. We were really hoping for a similar experience to what we had at Founding Farmers, but Farmers and Distillers is a far, far cry from its sister restaurants.
