The server didn’t give us a napkin even after we asked multiple times. He didn’t refill our drinks or check in with us after we received our food. We thought it was just because he was busy but we saw him twice roaming around doing nothing just waiting for the end of his shift.

For my first time dining hear my experience was not that great I ordered the short ribs and when I got my ribs they were overcooked and not chewable they were supposed to be bringing me out a catfish which took an hour to come out and then they ended up putting it on top of cold grits with string beans which was not what was asked of the waiter took five years to come to our table and check on my food. I’ll never go at the end of the night because they don’t care

Food was an innovative take on classic American. Very similar to its sister restaurant in DC, Farmers and Distillers.

This place is a really nice spot to go. Although the service is a little lackluster for my first time going to this location. The food is absolutely fantastic though and cooked to perfection. I definitely would encourage people to try this place.

Thank you to Adrian for providing perfect service - attentive but unhurried. The bacon-wrapped dates are a must. The salmon, goat-cheese ravioli with chicken, and honey thyme chicken were all outstanding. The beignets literally melt in your mouth, and my wife proclaimed the chocolate cake the be the "best ever".

Server was inattentive and rude. Food left much to be desired. Ordered the chicken pot pie. Crust was cooked on top but raw in the middle.

Founding Farmers is always a favorite place to go with friends. We really love their whisky cocktails, and the glazed salmon never disappoints. My husband did not love his risotto, but we are generally happy with everything we order here. We will definitely be back.

We mane a reservation for 7:15 online super easy. We arrived there a little early and they were very friendly. I had requested outdoor seating and it was perfected they have plenty of outdoor.
Food was delicious I ordered the bacon onion burger and was spectacular with the Mac and cheese also a must. Service was friendly and cordial. I would totally recommend. Felt COVID safe.

Went to FF-DC for dinner and realized when we got there HH was still in effect. Was able to order delicious food for a fraction of the regular cost. We shall return for HH.

Made reservations, yet when I arrived no outdoor tables were available. After waiting 30 minutes for a table we decided to leave and go somewhere else.

Great Experience. We were greeted well upon checking in at our reservation time. We reserved outside seating for our dinner service. Everyone distanced well. Taken care during the evening by Camilla (I hope that I'm spelling her name correctly) - she provided excellent customer service. We will be back.
