    The Founding Farmers Vodka Pesto Shrimp Linguine was bland and lacked flavor.The salmon was ok and the burger had a good flavor. I was able to order a different item to go which made the situation a little better. Our server and hostess was great!!

    Great service, great food and ambiance, amazing drinks, but very loud and difficult to hear the person across from you. Do not come if you have a fish allergy, most of their stations use fish ingredients, especially shellfish.

    There was a little confusion at the host stand, they didn’t seem like they had their stuff totally together (seating a walk in of the same size party ahead of us), but they did seat us rather quickly. The menu is very broad, everyone will find something that they like here. Portions are generous, and presentation is excellent. You’ll get a great meal here.

    So loud you could not hear the waiter or your companions, food was mediocre. Husband's fries were overcooked bits, food took forever to come. So, not worth the money.

    This was comically bad. We asked for a bourbon colada, but were told they were "out of" coladas. We ordered appetizers, they didn't come. The main course came, missing 2 orders of onion rings that they brought when we asked. Then they brought the appetizers. A manager came to the table after the waiter told her about the appetizers and asked about the main courses. We showed her a hamburger that was raw. She explained that that particular burger was automatically set to cook to "medium" because there's cheese in the patty. We said that would be ok if it were actually cooked medium, but this was barely a minute beyond tartare; no response. We ordered hot fudge sundaes but were told they were out of hot fudge. We ordered chocolate chip cookies but were told they were out. We scrapped dessert and asked for the check, which included the bourbon colada! We've been here before and liked it, but this was so ridiculous I don't know why we would go back.

    The waiter tipped herself 21%, I only noticed because I was not given a check to sign. Went to the manager and asked if they always add 21% tip on the food and tax, she said no. Assuming they added tip because we had to ask for food not delivered and pancakes never came. Manager voided the check and reissued so I could enter tip. This is stealing. Watch your check.

    Our actual waiter was great. Problem was with management. Our apps came out before our mains. My husband asked someone in authority (I have no idea what her position was) to hold the mains so we could eat the apps. First we were told nothing could be done about it and the mains wouldn't be remade after getting cold. Then when we had no choice but to accept everything as is she said she would do something with the bill but nothing was ever done and we were charged in full.

    The server was inexperienced and it showed. The table for five people was too big for the space and we were uncomfortable getting in and out; it needed to have been cut smaller to fit the space. And the noise level from the music was so loud people on one side of the table could not hear the people on the other side.

    Our server greeted us warmly from the onset, and we were looking forward to our experience. However, the biggest issue was the time it took for our food to be prepared and brought to us. We waited an hour and a half between being escorted to our table and receiving our food, which is insane. Our server didn't come back around to our table very often, and we were ultimately disappointed in this Mother's Day experience. The quality and taste of the food was lost under the poor planning and service of the kitchen and customer service teams.

    We have been here many times and granted it was Mother's Day but the service was the poorest we have ever seen at this location or any of their other restaurants. We had a reservation; we chose to order from the menu instead of the buffet. It was a simple order, two of us had salad, and another guest had a sandwich. It was over an hour after hour order was placed before we were served. The server was obviously very busy although they did have plenty of staff. No manager ever checked in on us especially when we saw them and tried to call them over but they ignored us.

    Breakfast brunch layout was cramped with mediocre food. The outdoor seating only way in and out was through revolving door, through the reception area which was crammed full of people. This made visits to the buffet challenging.

    The restaurant was crowded, as expected on Mother’s Day. Parties getting the buffet were seated on the opposite side of the restaurant near the bar which meant walking through a crowd to get our food. They tried to seat us at a table that would have blocked a person in. We weren’t told that some items listed on the buffet menu would have to be ordered and didn’t learn this until we were full. The buffet food wasn’t very warm. The desserts were very good, and so was the overall quality except for the food not being hot. The value wasn’t bad as they weren’t upcharging for the holiday like a lot of places. However, this is our third time in a row having a lackluster meal here, so this may have been our last visit.

    The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have ever experienced, with wonderful pastries and a huge variety of both traditional and novel breakfast foods, but the service was not good. Our waiter mumbled each of the two times he came to our table, which was difficult to hear in the noise of the busy restaurant on Mother’s Day, and he never checked on us or refilled our drinks once we had gotten our food. It looked like other tables had better service, but unfortunately our waiter seemed very overwhelmed.

    Quite the selection of different types of foods. Very enjoyable. On the noisy side.

    Service was extremely slow for breakfast. Our server hardly visited our table and it took a very long time for my guest to receive her coffee. We had to chase down a server to request additional food. My international movie star guest was cold and we requested to be moved. We were not accommodated. I think that Founding Farmers can do better. I am not sure if I can trust them again. Honestly, I was embarrassed.

    Our waitress was great but some of the food was not good. The steak and salmon were both overcooked but the pasta and scallops were great. Never had a bad experience at Founding Farmers but this one wasn't that good.
