We had a great spot to enjoy the Christmas tree lighting on the enclosed porch. The food was excellent and our server Samantha(?) was helpful and very friendly. We will definitely come again for special occasions.

We are so upset about our reservation for dinner for 3 adults, at Founder’s for 11/26. We got there on time, made the reservation at least 2 weeks ahead of time, and requested, , if possible, could we sit in the bar. When we arrived the table reserved for us was a table for two!! They said they would get another chair-took twice for them to bring one out that fit the height of the table. We were so squashed-people near us remarked they couldn’t believe it-there was not room on the table top for plates, etc. for three people. Servers couldn’t get by behind us-neither could any other guests. We asked for “somewhere else to sit” and were told there was nothing else available! It was the annual tree lighting on the green, we, and they, knew it would be busy, but we DID have a reservation made well in advance. Needles to say, after getting our stomachs in a knot because of how we were treated, we never ordered, left, and will not be going back there.

The drink I wanted was ordered and then told ,in a very unsavory way, we don't have any more. I said, okay and I would drink water. The water was a small cup and never was refilled. I spent most of my meal wishing for water. My partners were never asked if they wanted additional drinks after the initial drink they received. The waitress seemed angry.

I have an allergy and they were not doing any substitutions so I had to order something I didn't want to eat. The food I received was very bland. They should really work with people with allergies.

Overall, the atmosphere was great, we had great conversation and enjoyed our time. I would not return for a special meal but may try the regular menu in the future.

We went on Thanksgiving. They were very friendly and helpful. It was very busy but the waiter, staff and manager were very attentive and kind. We had a wonderful time. We had elderly family with us and my sister has a wheelchair. Would definitely recommend to others!

The food, atmosphere, service was excellent. We ate in the bar area with a view of the street, worth asking for unless you prefer a more quiet area. We would highly recommend it. The menu is great.

From start to finish - “outstanding”!

Waitress Francesca was “outstanding”. We had escargot, fried calamari, Ceasar salad all very very tasty and delicious.

NY Strip and Bakes Studded Shrimp were both “fabulous”! Ending with the Carrot Cake for two.

Highly recommend this restaurant and I would defiantly go back.

Founders food is very food and the service is top notch. My signature margarita was also excellent. I think they need to be careful that they don’t price themselves too high. The competition in town is getting pretty good and I would hate to see that effect them.

Very nice ambience. Pasta and seafood was a bit over done. Staff was excellent! Attentive and cheerful. Gluten free dishes were offered on menu.
Will go again and try something else.

It took an hour and 15 minutes to get our entree. My steak was good but my wife's dish was not prepaired the way they advertised. It was a fish dish that was supposed to be sausauteed in wine but came out like mac and cheese. My wife took the dish home and doctored it up the next day. Since you were so backed up, maybe you should have asked her to come in the kitchen and help.
