Although the atmosphere is a nice place to gather I felt like the food was lacking flavor. Even lacking salt and pepper which is the basics of cooking. The best thing we had was the fried chicken, donut and the garlic knot bread other then that even the hamburger was flavorless. The Mac and cheese was dry and didn’t even taste fresh. Not sure I would really go back as nothing really wowed me it was just ok. Not sure why the popularity maybe because I’m used to a lot of flavor and spices in my food this was just basic American bland food.

I waited for 35 mins for a table that I reserved in advance. The fried shrimp never was replenished nor the crab dip. My family and I are pescatarian. So we could not enjoy the buffet. We still paid full price and didn’t complain because by the time we wanted to get a second plate it was 2:50 and they called for last call. We weren’t seated until 2:22. My family and I eat here or Farmers Fishers Bakers at least 3 times a month. The food is always good and fresh. This experience was a little disappointing to say the least.

Some foods either never made it out to the buffet or were never removed from the list of foods offered on the buffet.

Pretty bummed about dinner. Literally looked up menu mid week and was stoked for the patty melt. Ordered medium rare. Unfortunately…came out pretty much rare. Even the waiter saw when I barely touched it when clearing the plates that he was kind of shocked. He also commented about the runny coleslaw. He nicely took the meal off our bill. Unfortunately I then had to find something to eat at the game. Kinda bummer of an evening. I had heard such good things and to have the fries be the highlight of the night…sub optimal.

Also now I just received email saying my reservation was canceled which I made through Open Table meaning I lose my points. Insult to injury.

Can you please look into training your chefs the meaning of medium rare and not have coleslaw juice make up half that side?

Can you also rectify that I did indeed eat…er have fries for our reservation tonight.

The buffet was good but with the amount of people, it should have been replenished quicker. Yummy crab dip was put out fresh but nothing to dip in it…I was told the bread chips were coming but they never did. The menu had kettle corn on it but I was told they weren’t popping any today. I was really disappointed.
The bacon was amazing!!!!
Our waiter was good but we could have used some coffee refills and plates taken away a few times.

Poorly managed. Staff and Bar was a mess. Different waiters dropping off other sections drinks and still having to deal with their own sections. Clearly some logistics issues. Waited 45 minutes to get our drinks at our table and when they showed up, one was wrong and two were under made (they filled them with ice to hide it, see picture). Asked for the waiter to get us new ones, he got the manager who told us that those drinks were made to a “standard” and it was impossible for bartenders to make incorrectly. After a few minutes he flipped is answer and agreed they looked like they were made short. Ridiculous that the manager wanted to fight than own the obvious. He comped one of the drinks which was nice but the fact that he argued a clear issue ruined the meal. Our waiter then proceeded to ignore us the rest of the night. Food was overall ok but just service wise really set the bar… Super disappoint considering the rave reviews.

F&D was extremely busy because of an event at Capital One Arena. Bar was slammed and drinks were delayed (took about 20 minutes for drinks to arrive after ordering). Server staff tried their best, kept us informed on when our drinks and food would arrive, and apologized multiple times for the delays. Look forward to dining there again when it is not so crazy!

We had a 6pm reservation before an 8pm event at Capital One and we were almost late to the event. Not cool for a restaurant harping on the 90 minute table turn. We were finally seated at 6:30pm and immediately put in our food and drink order and asked for the check to be brought when the food came. While our appetizers did come out pretty quickly, we got nothing else for the next 45 minutes. The server told us multiple times drinks were on the way (all tables around us had cocktails), but they never arrived. At least the food finally arrived at 7:30 so we at least got to eat (very quickly)! We didn't care one order was wrong and the poke salad had what appeared to be white chocolate shavings on it... Best part was when we paid the check, our drinks were on there!

Thank you for your review and I am so sorry for lack of accommodation displayed by our service team. I am also sorry the food ordered failed to fit the bill, and all in all, you were disappointed with your experience. It is sad to say we failed at our first impression, and I'd love the chance to turn this around! Please email me: hospitality@frg.farm with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Najjah
