My kids and I had a good time overall (Father’s Day), the food was OK, nothing special ( buffet with salmon & fried chicken), the ambiance was overcrowded. I guess next time we will select a more intimate & smaller restaurant.
The service was good!

Server really put no effort into our table at all and the restaurant wasn’t even full. We go often for brunch and have never had this problem.

I haven’t been to Farmers Fishers Bakers in a couple of years, but the last time I went it was great. I returned with visiting family and was VERY disappointed in the whole experience. First, we had to wait for our table, when we had an existing reservation. Secondly, the the restaurant is so loud you can barely hear one another at the table. Lastly, the service was very poor. Our waitress acted as if she was mad for being there and unhappy to be serving us. She forgot multiple items that we ordered and we had to ask her multiple time for these items- each time she came up with an excuse as to why it didn’t come out/why it was delayed. Also, not the waitresses fault, but the restaurant was our of several simple items including pineapple juice, which resulted in not being able to get drinks we would have liked and wasabi, which is a staple when you’re offering sushi on your menu. Overall, the experience was not great, and I’m upset that I brought family there to experience this as this restaurant used to be MUCH better years ago. I won’t be back, and will be sure to warn other locals not to waste their time and money.

Food was delicious! Service was little slow and a little sparse, but more than likely due to national shortage of workers. The outdoor view was very good. Manager came and talked to us about food allergy which was very accommodating! We’ll be back.

If you are thinking “it’s been awhile, let me go back to brunch because I remember this place was good,” save yourself the money and don’t. Go somewhere else. We arrived for our reservation and were seated shortly after. We waited for a waiter, but no one came so we went ahead and started the brunch offerings on our own. Ten minutes later, someone appeared. Drinks took longer than they should have to arrive. The brunch itself was poor as most items on the brunch menu were not offered or simply constantly out and not refilled. Asking for an item was met with “it’s coming” and it never arriving. For the table offerings, half never arrived after being ordered. Drink refill requests went forgotten. The overall atmosphere was disorganized chaos. Don’t go here for weekend brunch offerings.

There seemed to be disconnect with the hostess as I had to wait an additional 15 mins when I arrived 10 mins before my reservation. The flow in the restaurant is off saw many near collisions as guest are traveling to the buffet and their seats. Wait staff did not full explain what was buffet and Ala carte.

A wonderful time dining out for Father’s Day brunch with my hubby and 2 daughters.

Children under 6 eat FREE! Amazeballs!

Food was really yummy! My hot chocolate was so bomb!

Ambiance was refreshing,delightful,warm and inviting!

I loved seeing a diverse group of pple not only dining but serving in the restaurant. I really had a nice time.

I would suggest coming early and closer to opening times as it can get pretty busy and I’m sure longer wait times if not reserved ahead of time.

We had a wonderful meal outside with a terrific server Krupaul. The food was delicious, the ambiance was festive with the river in the distance, the illuminated fountain, people excited to gather again! Gazpacho was the best ever! Craft cocktails, delicious sushi and seafood options. So much variety on the menu. One of DCs best spots!

Menu said happy hour was until 6 pm. We were told by our server at 5:40 that the near round of drinks were full price. This was not communicated to us until after we received our drinks. Apparently they are switching to a new menu with new happy hour times although menu in front of us stated otherwise. Poor communication and poor way of acknowledging their mistake by having us pay full price for drinks that took 30 minutes to come anyways. Will think twice before coming back here.

Long time to sit down even with a reservation, not one single waitress or waiter served us, we had to get the manager’s attention, food was very basic, not worth it.

No one liked the food they ordered. Friends were not impressed by the drinks. Overpriced. We will not be doing happy hour here again...

Farmers Fishers Bakers is an overpriced, very crowded restaurant. The service was incredibly slow and inattentive and I would not return.

There are many options on the menu and the value for the quality adds up well. My main issue was drink orders take a while to come and our waitress never checked on us after taking our food order. She came quick and often to get the order but once we placed it never saw her again.

I went for my birthday, trying to go somewhere I never been and I didn’t like my food. I ordered the Fry combo and the crab cake wasn’t a crab cake at all it was a filler. The fries were pretty good and the fried shrimp but then I still switched my food to the All American Double Burger which was good but It took for me to switch my food to have a great time on my birthday. My first drink I ordered I had to send back as well because it was nasty

Bummer. :( We are so sorry the initial meal & drink you ordered fell short, and you needed to switch entrees and send back your beverage to better your Birthday experience. That's a true let down for our team to learn as well, and I'd love to make this right! Please email me a copy of your review, date dined & location: Amy@FRG.Farm to continue this conversation. -Amy

Great food and fun vibes near the waterfront in Georgetown. Service staff seemed a little overworked (maybe thinly staffed?). Otherwise great place.

We were celebrating a birthday. I should have known it was not going to be a good evening when the hostess said they would charge us a $3 per item "slicing fee" to serve the small cupcakes I brought that complied with our dietary issues. After we sat, we waited 20 min for someone to stop at our table for a drink order. And anther 5 min after that just to get water. Then got talked into appetizers that were "so small you should get two" - when one was more than enough - and waited an hour for food after that, which came cold. The vegetarian at our table ordered an impossible burger, and practically choked when she realized it was meat. The manager argued with me that the impossible burger tastes like meat so maybe she was mistaken. No, the order was mixed up. Various other issues with food but we stopped complaining because it so hard to get someone's attention and it seemed like to would only prolong our unpleasant experience.
Manager tried to make nice by bringing us a bunch of non alcoholic froufrou drinks that none of us wanted or liked. She took off about 1/4 of bill as well.

The waitstaff for our table was friendly. The trainee, adorable. Seriously understaffed! More hostesses than waitstaff. The hostesses sat guests quickly; however, the waitstaff was unable to meet the demand for service. It took 25 minutes for someone to come to the table to acknowledge us, but after my companion and I requested assistance at our table four times, not including the manager on duty.

I’ve been here before for dinner before and during covid, so familiar with the atmosphere. However, was rather underwhelmed with brunch… or perhaps overwhelmed. Waited 20 mins to be seated with reservation. Buffet was very chaotic and not sanitary as one would hope. Lines were long, it was cramped. Missing several drink options like soda even. Waitress was pleasant and accommodating. However, her support staff was just all over the place. Dropping off dishes that were never ordered. Bringing food to our table which was order by the table next to us. Just felt like we had to manage staff and expectations. No plans to come back for brunch. And hoping they can improve or at least manage the decent dinner service.
