Highly overrated. 20 minutes late seating us after we checked in 15 minutes early. At least 10 mins at the table before we even received a glass of water. Food was marginal and overall service was poor. It was a highly disappointing evening from a dining standpoint. Of all the places we could choose I am sorry we selected this place.

The food looked good but overall lacked seasoning. It was seafood so the freshness made it tolerable, but there could have been more.

Great food! Mussels for an app were delicious. Split the tuna and spicy fried chicken jambalaya with my brother - both were excellent. The fried chicken was not spicy, but still good nonetheless. Also great drinks! Service was good for the most part as well. Great place to take family/visitors.

Farmers Fishers and Bakers is one of my favorite brunch spots but my last visit was not the best. We were told that due to Covid, they had implemented new rules for a socially distanced brunch experience which is fine. My issue was our waiter who’s service was very sub par. Initially we thought he was scarce because of the social distancing. Then my girlfriend pointed out a waitress in the section just next to ours who was bringing her tables many options that weren’t on the buffet. Additionally, we had to constantly summons our waiter for basic things, refills on coffee and water, clearing our plates so we could return to the buffet etc. I love the Farmers restaurants but this visit was truly disappointing.

The food was fantastic and it was really lovely to have a safe dining experience during Covid. I love that the brunch is still an option. Our server was working with only our table for the majority of our stay and it was taking 10-15 minutes to order a drink or get our plates (food was prepare.) That was very frustrating considering no one else was dining that early. But the food made up for the mediocre service.

I had an 11:45 am outdoor reservation. The restaurant called around 10:45 am to apprise me that there would be no outdoor tables at the time of my reservation but there would be at 12:15 pm. I didn’t know how they could guarantee that and as it turned out, they couldn’t. I arrived at 12:15 pm promptly and my party wasn’t seated until 1pm. We stood in the sweltering heat for 45 mins. No effort was made to demonstrate regret, not a round of drinks, a free dessert, or a small discount on the check. Not to mention that the food was lackluster. It was a miserable experience and I will not be returning.

We made reservations for the patio and was seated at the table with direct sunlight; the table was so hot it burned us to touch. We asked three times to be moved, but ignored. Two tables came available and we asked if we could move bc our clothes were drenched and was told they had sanitized the open tables and would have to sanitize ours (I think my nearly $100 tab was worth it). We became so uncomfortable we couldn’t continue eating, so I asked if we could get popcorn and a key lime bar to go and was told they couldn’t bc it was brunch....I said we can’t continue to sit in this heat bc we’re drenched. Nonetheless, I just paid my tab and left! Worst treatment ever!!! I supported this restaurant during the pandemic and continued to and this was our treatment! Food was excellent, but work on some of your employees...I will add this is my first bad experience. The waitress was Christen

I am real sorry, ConsueloH for the disappointing brunch experience you had based on the location of your table and lack of accommodating service displayed by my teammate. :( I agree the outcome to your visit could've been totally different had we helped get your table out of the sun, and we appreciate you alerting us to what happened. This said, I would love the opportunity to touch base and hopefully turn this around. I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy

The food was good but the dog size policy needs to be revisited. Small dogs are fine but someone seated a few tables from us had a large dog that was shedding everywhere when the wind blew so his hair ended up in all of our food and drinks. Initially the management wanted to displace us instead of inconveniencing the owner by asking him to move to another table. They finally resolved it by moving him, but that should have been the initial response.

Farmers, Fishers, & Bakers was an excellent restaurant! The menu options were creative and fit all my foodie desires. The garlic wings (appetizer) was 10/10! Our waiter, Drake, personable and accommodating to our dining needs at all times. My only complaint would be that we had outdoor seating and a reservation, but we ended Up waiting 20+ minutes to be seated. It was a Saturday, so I understand that it was busy. Overall, our food was amazing and we couldn’t stop talking about it the next day. Beautiful location by the waterfront and even tastier food and creative drinks! 10/10.. I would highly recommend this place for couples or friends getting together for lunch or dinner!

Requested to sit outside on patio which I was promised. When we arrived we were shoved inside. My boyfriend and I were both sweating bullets. We asked the manager to maybe open a window or get some type of airflow: come to find out the AC has been broken for 3 days !!! The food was terrible and rushed. Also the water we received was warm. They didn’t even give us ice. The manager seemed not to care that we were dissatisfied. Do not recommend, over priced hospital food at best.

I am very sorry we were unable to accommodate your request for the patio this time, and also apologize for the overly warm dining room, under-whelming food quality & subpar service. :( With this all acknowledged, I would love the chance to turn this around & hopefully make this right, and will send you a personal note with my contact info. -Amy

No matter whether a pandemic or regular life, this location just cannot get it together for guests with reservations. Dont make people wait 20 minutes and claim it is covid - every time i have gone here it is always crap with the reserved times. And clearly state online that Saturday is all brunch / surprised when we were seated and this was the “option” I think I have tried enough times with this location and going to give it a hard pass in future. I will say our waiter was outstanding - shame he has to deal with the continued shortcomings of the restaurant :(

I am so sorry for the additional wait you had this time (and any other time you've visited!), and I also apologize our buffet was unknown- our menus on our website are listed as "weekday breakfast" & "weekend brunch" as an attempt to help avoid this type of confusion- which I feel badly there was still a misunderstanding. :( That said, I would love the chance to connect about your feedback and hopefully turn around our shortcomings- I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
