Not sure they were staffed for the number of diners. One salad came without the shrimp which was ordered. Took forever to get it
Fried chicken with a donut and beer was excellent as was the mac & cheese and the fish & chips. Great service.
Pricing here seemed uneven. Strangely, I thought my soup was overpriced ($7.50 for half a bowl of potato soup) and my spicy fried chicken was underpriced ($17.50 for two huge breasts + mashed potatoes and collard greens). Everything was delicious except for the special mint soda; my wife liked it, though, just not for me. Also, $17.50 for a glass of house pinot noir is obnoxious. Our server seemed knowledgeable but was occasionally absent for stretches. I hope he appreciated 20%+.
The overall experience was great but having to then wait for a table despite having a reservation was a bit frustrating
Heard that Brunch was top notch and wanted to give it a try.
Food was avareage and the staff could not keep it replenished quickly enough.
We were sat at a table that the buffet line wait meant it was very congested and noisy.
Crowded place on a Sunday. Service was spotty with some requests and concerns. Manager did address then but server seemed unconcerned when informed of the issue.
The brunch was very good! It's a little pricey, but I would go again!
Sunday brunch is outstanding with a large variety of fresh, well prepared foods. From made-to-order eggs Benedict and pancakes, crispy fried chicken, flaky salmon, beautifully roasted vegetables and much more, to fresh salads and fruits, to just-baked pastries and homemade ice cream. Add a cocktail and your wonderful brunch is complete! Reservations recommended.
Kyla our server was just amazing! She was on her A game and provided exceptional service. Didn’t have to ask for a single thing during our meal, as everything was promptly taken care of. Other than almost going into a food coma, everything was wonderful. Brunch at Farmers is awesome. Special thank you to manager Shenise for making us feel so welcomed.
Fairly frustrating evening. Showed up 5 mins before our reservation and were told it would be another 25 mins because there were many people before us (didn’t know reservations worked that way but whatever). We were told to wait at the bar and they would come and get us. We waited and after about 15 mins someone offered to take our drink order. My wife got wine and I got Poor Richards Cocktail. 5 mins later the head bartender came and told me they were out of the overproof rum they use to make it. I told her I didn’t really care about the type of rum and asked her to make it with whatever type of rum they had. She refused “It would alter the flavor profile too much. I don’t feel comfortable making it”... So I guess I’m not responsible enough to choose what I drink haha. I appreciate the advice and her expertise, but the ultimate goal of every hospitality organization should be to serve the guest and defer to their desires and preferences. I guess some places like founding farmers have forgotten that though and believe they know best. Oh well. I ordered another drink and it was fine. After this, I received an email that I had missed my reservation and not shown up haha. The hostess never came to take us to our table and instead marked us as a no show so we waited for a spot at the bar to eat. Finally sat down and ordered food. I got the Cacio e Pepe and my wife ordered a roast beef sandwich. The sandwich was terrific. The pasta was even less than mediocre. It was so incredibly bland and dry. We ate and asked for the check. The lady grabbed the glass behind the counter that held the check and tossed it on the bar where we were eating. It spun around and almost landed in my wife’s lap. The waitress didn’t smile or apologize for it though. Guess she didn’t think that was rude. So we paid and left.
Really sad to have experiences like this. This restaurant has so much potential but it really goes to show you that the core of hospitality are the people and their attitude
Fabulous food, a bit pricey for my budget but definitely worth every penny!
This is my third visit to founding farmers. The first two were very good. This one was somewhat of a joke. I went to a holiday dinner with my long time friends that we do every year. We sat down at 6:55pm and our food was not given to us until 8:45pm. We ordered right away and got our drinks right away but that’s where the service stopped. I called the manager over and he went back to get the food and brought out the food that was not even finished being prepared. The fish had no crab or Mont Blanc sauce on it. My steak was burned and my potatoes were dry and like they were used from yesterday. Just all in all a terrible experience and management did not seem to care. My recommendation is that don’t waste your time at this restaurant when you have so many better options in the area that will treat their customers right.
Outstanding service - good food. Not necessarily diet friendly!
The food here is always out of this world!! From farm to table is always so fresh. The servers are usually on their game, so I have no complaints there. The issue I always have with this place is the reception. They are so slow at reception. This time I came in and I literally waited 3 min before I was even acknowledged by the people working at the reception, even though I was standing right in front of them. There were 4 people at the desk and all of them were “too busy” with their heads down to even tell me it would just be a moment? Come on!! I wouldn’t mind waiting a little longer if you would at least look up and say “Hi, I’ll be right with you”. Not only that, but once I checked in, they some how forgot about me and had to come out to me and ask me my name again to confirm my reservation. This was 10 min after I checked in. My family really likes this place, but honestly, they need to pick up their game in the reception area.
Both of my visits so far have been great, with excellent food and overall enjoyable experience.
Food was disappointing and wait staff was slow. We love the DC and Georgetown restaurants - the food and service as we remember was better there.
Great brunch! This was our second time coming for brunch and the food was delicious. There seemed to be a lot less to choose from than last time but what they had was great. 2 at our table ordered hot chocolate and were surprised to see that they were $4 each when the check came, definitely on the high side.
One of the best brunch buffet I have been to. Good food. Nice presentation. Servers are very nice and attentive. Different items on the buffet.
Drinks are over filled with ice and they refuse to accommodate customer requests
Amazing as always. MidAtlantic scallops were phenomenal
Founding Farmers never disappoints. Once again excellent service. Opted for the ribeye which was cooked to perfection, seasoned nicely, and accompanied by a loaded baked potato. I was looking forward to tasting their donuts (the smell as you enter the downstairs gets me everytime). Average at best. My husband loved the ice cream.
Way too loud and server wasn’t attentive. Food was pretty good.
Food was very good and reasonably priced. Noise level seemed loud but also, unfortunately, par for the course at most restaurants anymore. The staff who served the food were very nice, but the waiter who took our order had a very indifferent attitude and then double-billed us at the end, requiring the manager to step in and explain/correct the problem.
great place for lunch with the family ,bright and fun and fresh
Perfect location for lunch!
Really enjoyed dining at the Founding Farmers. My sister-in-law and I went for lunch and had an excellent meal, great service and we loved the atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Food is great. Portions are huge. Service is nice. They ran out of soda though.
I went there with 8 of my coworkers. We had a great time.
Very nice experience. We arrived, had a reservation and we were seated immediately. We started with a bottle of Malbec and a couple of appetizers. They crab artichoke dip and bacon lollys are delicious! Everyone enjoyed their entree. Our server was very accommodating and friendly. Will certainly return!
Always great food and amazing service - love coming here!!
You need a reservation, even on a Tuesday night. The hostess seated us promptly while the threat of others who were hoping to get our table would be given to them. Not fun to know your table could be given away if you are late for your reservation. It's worth making a reservation and be on time for this awesome culinary experience. Will go back. Saturday and Sunday brunch is a good sampling of their healthy delicious food. Great Valley Forge Historical vibe done so well.
We were very impressed with the restaurant when we arrived for our reservation. After being greeted we waited 20 minutes to be seated. The server arrived and was very cheerful and helpful. We ordered appetizers (califlower Hummus, Fried Green Tomatoes) The tomatoes had no flavor and were breaded to heavily. The entrees were NY Strip, Cedar Plank Salmon & Chicken Enchiladas with N Y Strip. Two of the entrees were wonderful but the chicken enchiladas were two very large but not so tasteful chicken. The dessert we ordered 4 Ice Cream cones but they ran out of cones so the used a cookie shell but the server took this item off the check for us without asking. I had the donut... I was waiting for a nice warm fresh chocolate glazed donut...and I received a stale tasteless small donut. What a disappointment. So some coffee that was way to strong and no refills ... we noticed our check was delivered $250.00 .. So we won't be back.
Very good food excellent service Make reservations to avoid wait
We were seated in the back corner of the restaurant which was great since the noise level was really low. The food was really delicious, fried chicken for a few of us and the pot roast. Server did not seem to interested in our table, could be understaffed, but could have made substitution suggestions while we were placing the order, truthfully we were not high maintenance. The food was good, sort of "down home" cooking with a twist.
We were shown to a small table near the bar area and, at my request, were given a larger table across the aisle. The hostess and host, on request, found a third and final landing spot that was perfect for conversation and had elbow room.
Our server was wonderful and so helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful.
This was my first visit but I will be Going back next week with friends!
Two suggestions: scented candles in the ladies room were tough in both allergies and a potential migraine.
Have a separate fryer for shellfish for those with food allergies. I hear the fried chicken is great but can’t experience it due to a fryer also used for shrimp☹️
All in all it was a very nice place to dine!
We were a party of three. We shared two salads as they are large and we asked for an extra plate a couple of times (They said they could not split the salads for us). It never came. Our server did make sure we had enough water. The salad was very good. Two of us had the turkey platter and the turkey was dried out and everything on the dish seemed overcooked. We had the dish previously and it was good. One of us had the fried chicken dish and enjoyed it. We did not complain but people at the tables around us were complaining about their food. It seemed that the restaurant had an off night.
We will try again but if the food is mediocre again that would be the last time.
First time there and it will be our last. From the moment we sat down, our experience was horrible. Our waitress had zero enthusiasm, spoke so softly we couldn't hear her and when we asked questions regarding the menu, she either didn't know the answer or gave us a one word answer. I asked our waitress if there was an end cut of the prime rib still available and she had to be reminded by me three times. She kept coming over to take our order without giving me the answer. After her third attempt, she told me that there was an end cut available. I ordered it and changed the sides and my wife ordered the filet. When the meals came, our enthusiastic waitress put my wife's meal down and then plopped my plate on the table. She then tells me they didn't have an end cut prime rib due to miscommunication and walked off without asking me if it was ok. I called her back and told her I didn't want the meal and to give me a menu to pick something else and send over the manager. She threw a menu at me and walked away taking the wrong meal away. When the manager came over, he had less enthusiasm than our waitress and told me that he would bring over the the correct meal because "the kitchen messed up." At this point my wife had eaten her entire meal so as it didn't get any colder than when it was delivered. 15 minutes later, the manager arrives with the correct meal for me but the sides were incorrect. He came back another 5 minutes later with the correct sides, however, I had to make my own loaded baked potato because he left me with the original plain one and just brought over the toppings separately. At this point, having the correct meal, albeit cold, I ate it and then we left. While we were seated, it appeared that there was a major problem with the kitchen, because all night long the manager was coming over to all of the tables in our section replacing them due to some issue. By the time he dealt with us, he looked like a defeated man. We will never go back
Grilled cheese portion was extremely small.
Worst waiter we ever had.
