    I know I'll always enjoy my meal at Founding Farmers. The menu is varied and the food is great. Whether light fare or a full dinner, I'm always happy with whatever I order. I love desserts and I wasn't disappointed with the beignets I had last night. They were light and crispy and came with three different dipping sauces. I'll be back for more!

    The only thing that bothered me was that the maple syrup seemed watered down. It definitely wasn’t as thick as you’d expect. The food is always yummy and my blueberry pancakes were great with the blueberry compote, which I used to enhance the syrup.

    I eat here weekly and love the food. If you want to chat, this restaurant does get loud. I love the buzz and energy of a full restaurant. Oh, I’m not a fan of sitting at a table in the bar area. You gotta wait for the bartender and they get super busy and the details of good service are lost!

    Our food was excellent, but the service lately at this location has gone way downhill. It used to be great, but lately, the service has been bad, and the staff all seem miserable. We've been coming here for years, and one of the great things used to be how friendly and personable the staff was. It felt warm and inviting. Now, it feels very transactional with everyone who works there. The last few times, it's been really slow, and basic requests seem challenging (water, refills, waiting forever for the check, etc).

    I've been going to the MoCo Founding Farmers about once every other month since it opened. It's one of my favorite places to eat. I've even recommended it dozens of times. I have no idea what happened today but it started off with us having to ask for a clean glass of water because something was floating in one of the glasses. When we asked a nearby staff member, who appeared to be a manager, to bring us a clean glass, she replied tersely " why what's wrong with it." Things went down hill from there. A large party next to us caught my eye and told us they had to send all their food back because plates were dirty and their beverages were delivered in glasses with lipstick on them. Two of the three meals delivered to our table were sent back because the plates were dirty and the food wasn't prepared correctly. Our appetizers came out with the food and we barely saw our server. A manager did come over to offer us a sincere apology and comped our meal. And while we appreciated it, we would have preferred and been happy to pay for good food and decent service. I will give that location another try in a couple of months and sincerely hope things have improved.

    We had a lovely Easter brunch with the incredible beignets, a crab cake Benedict, and the Founding farmer special. Henry’s service was impeccable. He was friendly, professional, and attentive. The drinks were a bit pricy Arnold Palmer 4.99 but luckily there were free refills. We will be back.

    Very busy Easter brunch Sunday…longer wait for a reservations but that is to be expected. Even with the bustle…the service, food, and drinks did not waiver. This is the only place i order pancakes and partially because of how amazing the syrup is. This will continue to be my first brunch pick.

    I've been a fan of Founding Farmers for years. It gets crowded, though, and it seems to impact timely food delivery, but the food is always great and the staff always strive to exceed expectations. Definitely don't plan to go to a Founding Farmeres without reservations! Maybe they need to find a bigger space in Montgomery County!

    I appreciate that the process of setting up a reservation was easy and able to get a table within 30 minutes. We were seated at one of the booths by the bar. Our server was nice and pleasant. We got couple of biscuits which were good. We received our entrees: Chicken and waffles missing waffles French dip sandwich with gravy coming out with gelatinous clumps so it was definitely not reheated properly. Pot roast mostly fat and not up to proper temperature. Did we talk about the food quality with the manager? Not at this or that point due to usually we just keep it moving but in this case we had a more unpleasant situation. The situation was the employees dropping curse words non stop and loudly. My husband approached the employee after hearing the employee drop about 6-8 expletives in less than a few minutes. I give points to the manager for approaching us but my husband asked to discuss it when we weren’t in the middle of eating. He said he would return however we already received are bill and paid. My husband called to discuss after where we were transferred to a catering voicemail and we called back to a lackluster converataion. My opinion is this is not the Founding Farmers we grew to love and want to bring friends to. The customer service and food is just not there.

    The food wasn’t awful but it definitely wasn’t good. My daughter’s waffle was bland. Tasted like fluffy bread. I’m guessing they forgot the vanilla in the batter. It also had random bit of lettuce or spinach in it. The grits and veggie patty my wife had were passable but not that tasty. The restaurant was ridiculously busy and the server was trying his best but we had to request things like butter after getting pancakes and cream after getting coffee. Not to mention my wife had to ask for coffee 3 times before getting a refill.

    Didn’t accommodate for elderly patron, and noise level was out of control. They seated us at 4 person table, having to squeeze in a 5th even though I had a 5 person reservation they didn’t reserve a 5 seat table. Very disappointed. No lore brunch there for us.

    Went with my daughter to have burgers and some time together. I had the 3 mini burgers and she had the cheeseburger. Both were overcooked and the bread was ok at best. They were ok but not great. Service was great. Daniel did a great job. The atmosphere is a little noisy but ok. Lots of people there. Parking is really tough so come early. The parking garage is your best bet but also fills up.

    This is an outstanding and appealing neighborhood restaurant, with an appealing menu. Unfortunately, the steak in my "steak and frites" turned out to be rather tough and, although I had asked for medium rare, it looked quite raw. Maybe I'll stay away from their steak next time. However, everything else was fine. Service, in particular, was excellent.

    Staff was not accommodating. I was cold and requested a seat change at beginning and was denied. Other seats were empty

    Loved being upstairs where it was quieter and we could talk! (But that elevator was a bit scary for my niece who has some mobility issues). Great service and great food!

    A basic breakfast was almost twice as expensive as any of the local delis, and not nearly as good

    Before we said three words to her, the server was obviously disappointed we were there at all. In fact, I had to go searching for her to bring her to the table. The “attitude “ continued throughout the meal. We tried to change the vibe by being nice to her but no dice. Appetizers were slow, anything from the bar took FOREVER, to the point of being comedic. If we did anything to offend her we are sincerely apologetic, but I suspect it was a house issue. Servers being allowed to take a break when things are going bad might be better than what we experienced.

    Met a friend for dinner on a Wednesday night. The parking is challenging. The first 2 hours are free in the underground garage but unless one eats fast & receives exceptionally fast service they will be there for at least 2 1/2 hours. Wait staff was average. My order was incorrect & served by someone other than the original server. No one ever followed up to ask if everything was accurate or if we needed anything, which we did but there was no one to ask. The food was very good. We agreed we would not return between the parking fees & the service. $80 for 2 & we only drank water.
