Nice Saturday night dinner with the family. Great atmosphere and ambiance. Particularly enjoyed our soups, French fries and steak. Noise level was a bit high but that’s likely due to a spirited party the next table over. Fun experience and we will be back.

Food was great. I had the Mac and cheese with lobster. Husband had the seabass. We had the colossal cinnamon bun for dessert. I would definitely recommend and go back.

Great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. The only "glitch" was with my entree. I specifically asked if I could get it without one of the ingredients. I was assured that I could but it came with it anyway. The salad was still delicious but I had to pick out the item I did not want.

I have been to Founders House several times and always have a brilliant experience. The staff is extremely friendly - especially Kelsey whom we have had the pleasure to sit with on more than one occasion. The Escargot are delicious as are the No Dip Wings and Mussels. The Pan Seared Salmon comes with a tasty coconut rice but you cannot go wrong with one of the steaks!
Splurged and had the Blueberry Peach Crisp - it had a perfect balance of sweet and tart with creamy cool balance of ice cream.
The atmosphere is trendy and I love the bar with all the windows...All in all one of my favorite spots in Milford.

We asked for an isolated table at which to dine with aging parents; we booked a 1:00 reservation on a weekday and landed in a sunroom with no other diners, off the bar and overlooking the town green.
The bartender is really a great mixologist and an attentive waitress. The food was fresh (blue point oysters!), well presented and served hot.
Would highly recommend.

We went on thanksgiving Friday night and sat on the patio. The tables were well spaced and the heaters made it very comfortable. Samantha was wonderful and caring. The food was exceptional with very large portions. I would highly reccomend it for a special meal

My wife and I had the prime rib which was excellent and a generous portion. I would have like to see a better dessert choice but the pumpkin pie was delicious.

We came out to sit outside on Sunday afternoon. Everyone was so nice an attentive to us and the food was wonderful. It was nice sitting on the patio looking over the green and for a brief couple of hours we actually forgot about the Covid and the politics. It was almost like what Normal used to be.
Too the Staff of the Founders House thank you for the day!

Great service, great set up for dining outside on cooler nights. Loved the lamb meatball appetizer that was a special, but the rest of our dinner was nothing special, a bland veal sandwich, giant flavorless sweet potatoes in the gnocchi and the avocado sweet potato salad was a bad mix of flavors. We would go back just for apps.
