Fun place with alot going on. Food was delicious and the staff very, very freindly. Great recommendations by our waiter. If you're looking for a large place with great food, indoor and outdoor seating, right off the river, and a lots of people watching this is the perfect for you.

This restaurant was recommended to us from a neighbor who had previously dined here on a trip to Washington. We thoroughly enjoyed each item that was ordered and the experience was awesome. We were greeted warmly at the hostess desk and our servers were great. We would definitely return.

The food was ok, my fiancé and I believe founding farmers is much much better food wise, the choices are better. Now when it comes to service founding farmers and company beats every restaurant I've been to they cater above and beyond for each customer which is amazing I'm from NYC and when I'm in the DMV. Area the only place I truly love to dine in is Founding Farmers, but if you like sea food then Farmers Fishers and Bakers is definitely your go to place ask for Tony amazing amazing waiter. Thanks again guys.

I don't tend to write reviews and when I do it's more fun to call out the positives, so first I'll say that the tiki drinks are worth trying and the food is fresh and tasty.

The service at FFB however, particularly the front of house and seating, is a train wreck. This is now two seating mess-ups where we were treated like cattle and basically sneered at.

First attempt, Tuesday evening, after work happy hour. Seated outdoors. It had been raining. We were silently and rudely led to a table that had water on the chairs. Mind you...there were numerous nearby dry tables. We looked at the wet chair. We looked at the hostess. We looked at the wet chair and asked "could we please move to one of the dry tables or dry this off?" She huffed and reluctantly moved us over to another table. Ok. Cool. Maybe she'd had a bad day. We enjoyed our meal.

Second attempt, Sunday afternoon, lunch date. Reservations for 2:15 but we're hungry earlier and done shopping. We go and it's not too busy and the hostess says it'll be 15 minutes at most and to wait outside. They'll text us. They don't text us. After 23 minutes I go to the hostess stand and she sneers and says "we tried to text you and you didn't respond, oh, it didn't work. wait by the door and we'll seat you right away". We wait by the door. And we wait by the door. And we wait. Nothing.

OK, it's Sunday, it's been busy. We go to the hostess stand. "Hi, sorry, you're not checked in." Me ".........." "We were standing here and you checked us in. We had reservations, you said you'd text us, and.." Them "oh. we'll get you seated"

They they proceeded to seat 4 tables. At this point my dining companion went up to the hostess stand and said "hey, ok. last chance. should we head out?" This sounds ruder than it was. We were calm and not aggressive unlike most people in the DC area would have been. I mean, come on. At a certain point you want people's money, or you don't. Please fix your front of house issues, folks.

We wanted to place an order for our entrees and we the waiter we wanted to order them now and he said he would be right back and we didn’t see him for another half hour. We gave him our order and for one of the orders our friends were to split two tacos, one with lettuce, one with tortilla. We said we specifically wanted to split an order. After waiting close to 40 minutes(again not seeing our waiter for a long time), the food came out. Two orders of tacos came out and we immediately said we only wanted one order and he gave us a small attitude saying “well I’ll see what my manager says and maybe we can take this off for you.” This was shocking to us because we repeated that we only wanted to share one order. Anyway as per the food, we felt that the meat in the tacos, burger and seafood dish was very salty and was not seasoned well. Another half hour went by and we did not see our waiter again and at this point we are truly disgusted. We asked for the bill, which took another 15 minutes and we gave him careful instructions. There were 5 of us and I handed him one card and said put $15.00 on this card, and split the balance on the other 4 cards. He says okay and comes back and hands us back the bill. In the enclosure there were ONLY 4 CARDS. The card where I instructed him to put $15.00 on was missing. The wrong card has $15.00 on it and the other three cards have the balance of the bill for wrong amounts. Why? Because the other card was not even charged and was not given back to us. I went back inside and informed the desk of the mix up and it took another 15 minutes just to get the manager to talk to the waiter and find out what happened. The waiter put the card in his pocket and forgot to charge it. The waiter seemed totally off, uninterested in our table and seemed miserable and had no desire to serve us or want to help us. The manager comes outside finally and we explain the situation and then he goes to “correct it” and says “this is unacceptable”. Worst dining

We came after a an early show at the Kennedy Center and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The atmosphere was upscale without pretention. It was cool overlooking the fountain and Potomac River at sunset (we had a window seat). The food was heavenly. And besides a bit too much background noise, we enjoyed it with our entire family tremendously. The kids had no problem finding what they loved in the menu. Of special note, my pork shank was perfectly done with a nice BBQ sauce, a corn salsa and shredded slaw on top. My mouth waters just thinking about it.

Very crowded Friday night; lots of noise. We arrived 15 minutes early, but waited 40 minutes to be seated - ie almost 25 minutes after our reservation time. We had to eat fast, and were then a bit late for an appointment. Too bad. Perhaps this was because few wanted to sit outside in the cold. Food was good, but there are better restaurants in the area.

Our server was very friendly. We were visiting with friends who we hadn’t seen in several years. We asked for a quiet area and were given a booth. The host tried to be very accommodating but the noise level was so loud it was very difficult to hear each other. High energy so for a regular night out it would be fun.

I made a reservation through Open Table, and noted it was for a birthday meal. There was absolutely no mention or question about that. Which adds to the unhappiness with how inattentive the service was anyway. There wasn’t water refilled until I had to wait and ask. The food was good. Service poor.

We went for dinner on a Friday night while visiting our daughter at college. While the food was quite good, the service ruined the entire experience. The wait person took forever to get to our table and then pretty much insisted that we order both our drinks and food. Interestingly, the drinks came only after we got our appetizers . But the fun didn’t end there! The woman busing our food vultured our table to clear it. I literally had to put my hand over my plate and tell her to stop it ! I wasn’t finished. But it didn’t matter because our main dishes arrived and they cleared our plates without permission. The waitress did not show up for any of this . What a disaster. It’s not worth reviewing the food as the service made for an unappetizing evening.

Meal very over seasoned with salt. Had reservation but waited 1/2 hour for table. Waited 1/2 hour for bill while we watched our server cleaning other tables. Seemed more concerned with getting off work than finishing serving customers.

The open buffet wasn’t really an open buffet .. it was fried chicken with tacos + salads with no dressing.
And if you need to order sushi or shrimp or cinnamon, you need to order them separately and it would take for ever to bring it to discover that the plate has 4 pieces of sushi ( they also don’t serve ginger.. imagine sushi with nothing on the wide LoL.. we ordered another plate and it never came.... We ordered eggs Benedict and they brought one egg for a table of four.... they could have said it is a limited buffet .. the location is great though.... make sure you have have lunch before you go to their buffet ... with the current management , it is good place for tourists only.

We were traveling from NY to DC FOR vacation. The registration desk person recommended this place to us. We reserved a table, arrived a few minutes early- waited awhile for our table. The service was very slow, took us awhile to get our food. This restaurant provides no bread. We were starving by the time our food arrived. The noise level was very high. The place was packed.. still waited too long for food....
