Founding Farmers - Montgomery County
While our restaurant is supplied by hundreds of family farms everywhere, that doesn’t mean we know every farm, and that doesn’t mean we never have to buy product from the traditional (corporate) supply chain, but it does mean we’re working hard to direct our purchasing dollars where it aligns with our values.
We’re serving the best food we can, made from scratch in our kitchens every day. Our innovative, American dishes are made primarily with pure ingredients honoring the farmers and their hard-earned bounty.
The restaurant is upscale casual, which welcomes business casual dress, and dress that would be appropriate in a nice restaurant; this includes jeans and athletic wear, and warm-weather clothing, including shorts.

The food was fresh and delicious. Our server Fatima was wonderful. We will definitely be back.
Birthday celebration. Food was delicious! Staff attentive. Have no complaints.
Had a reservation at 11am on a Sunday morning. It was busy and I felt like our waitress was not fully able to focus. When the food came out, my food was missing! I waited and finally had to ask for my waitress. She came and I told her what I ordered, but said I thought you ordered something else. Which did not make since because nothing came. So after she put in my order it came out fairly quickly. Which should have been a sign because it luke warm and just mediocre. Also two people from my table who both ordered the crab cake Benedict got stomach aches and had to use the restroom right after we left!
family get-together with 7 people on a sunday at 9:30am. server was gracious & very accommodating, helping me get a favorite item that typically isn’t served in the breakfast menu.
Founding Farmers MoCo is great. The service is always excellent, the food is AMAZING and if you do enjoy a beer or cocktail, they have a lot of really fun options.
I loved the food, but not the service or the wait. I made a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes before being seated. The server was inattentive and took at least 15 more minutes to take the tables order. The guest of honor(pregnant lady’s) food seemed to be forgotten as it got there 10 minutes after everyone else in the party. I have been here before and received good service but this time was a fail for me and my group.
I've been here a few times. Food is consistently good. The chocolate chips pancakes were good, huge serving size.
Lisa our waitress was fantastic , timing of everything for a busy Saturday morning was also great.
Small portion, unclean tables poor service
as always - amazing
Friendly service and great food!
From the start...wrong drink brought to table. Deviled eggs were awful. Hamburger was cooked as ordered but no big deal for taste. Chicken Milanese was a breadt pounded with wing attached and had no flavor. The arugula salad was placed directly on top of the Milanese!
Great restaurant with amazing food. Our waitress, Paris, was nothing but kind and amenable to our requests. If you're looking for somewhere quiet to talk, this probably isn't the place to go. Definitely a fun, lively atmosphere.
The noise level is awful. The restaurant was half full and the noise was very loud. Our waiter lowered the music but it made no difference.
First time dinning there. Wonderful experience, with great food and good vibes.
Our dishes at brunch were all served cold. Services lacked as well. Had to keep asking for butter, coffee refills, etc.
This is not a quiet restaurant. The coffee is excellent and food is served at the appropriate temp. I only wish I could hear my table companions. Sit at the bar if you want to hear a conversation.
Our waitress, Amber, was outstanding. She had good recommendations and seemed knowledgeable about the dishes. The food was delicious. However, the restaurant was too noisy, and the floor was dirty. The restaurant was crowded, and I imagine that there was high
The food was awful. Greasy, soggy salad, unseasoned pasta.... awful. You know the food is bad when the manager was making rounds apologizing for how the food tasted. Our neighbors, ourselves and the people behind us all got the apologizing speech.
We will never go back.
Great portion size and food taste amazing.
Great as always
Food was excellent, but expensive.
Food quality is good ; Service is adequate. It may be more expensive than other competitors with the same quality of food.
Really liked the restaurant because I can tell dishes were scratch made. The server was excellent. I disappointed in the greens and mac and cheese when I was there Friday Nov 30. The $3 upcharge for the mac and cheese was ridiculous considering the portion size was one spoonful and the taste was nothing special. Too much crunch in the mac and cheese. Crunch topping is not necessary. Felt like I had sand in my mac and cheese!!! I was told the greens were collards and they were not. They appeared to be mustard greens and were not seasoned at all! I know my greens and those were not collards. Please cook your greens in seasoned broth (using some type of smoked meat that is boiled in water that is seasoned with onions or onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, red pepper flakes). The short rib was tender but also lacked seasoning. The only seasoning was in the overly sweet sauce that was poured on it. Check out Ann Burrell’s recipe on the Food Network website. That is one of the best ways to do short ribs. You will see and taste the difference.
The ribs could have been a little fresher. Tasted a little old. But rest of the meal was outstanding.
Great dining experience with a server who demonstrated exceptional customer service!!! I live in Baltimore and was catching up with an old friend from Manassas,VA. Founding Farmers was a perfect in between spot to meet and he had never been to one. She never rushed us, gave us time to catch up, recommended dishes, kept us informed regarding food delivery and engaged in light conversation regarding pets and stocks. We started with the hot crab & artichoke dip - superb! It was followed by salads - his was the Good All Greens and I had the Fried Chicken substituted with grilled chicken- fresh, delicious and filling!
Enjoyed our visit - the food was delicious! We tried two different vegetarian entrees, and two fabulous desserts. Two downsides of our experience were the distracted waiter, who completely missed two of the smaller items that we ordered, and the noise level of the space, which made it hard to have a normal conversation.
Great experience overall - Drove 30 minutes just to come here and had a wonderful Sunday brunch with my mom. Dishes could definitely be described as comfort food, can't wait to come back for really any occasion!
Our large family loves this restaurant. Lots for every member - vegetarian, carnivore, omnivore who love good food! Any time of day!
I was very pleased with my server and how attentive he was. I was disappointed in my meal. I ordered deviled eggs and they tasted like I bit into a fresh onion. I have ordered these before and didn't have this experience, not sure what the issue was. Also, the greens where not properly washed and had a gritty taste to them.
It was a little pricey for the portion size, and
Amazing food! Everything we had was delicious, especially the eggs Benedict! Lisa was our waitress and she went above and beyond for us!! Thank you!
Great brunch and service!
Food and service were great!
This was our third year dining at Founding Farmers on Thanksgiving, and it was awful. The meal was rushed. The next course was served before the prior one was finished. The ham was dry. The “turkey” was a pile of skin and no meat. The pies (chocolate and apple) were lackluster. We were disappointed considering how great the experience was in previous years. We’ll be finding a new restaurant for Thanksgiving next year.
This wonderful restaurant never lets me down. The food selection is very good. The service is hospitable and the atmosphere is festive. We'll surely return. Bravo!
We went for Thanksgiving, arrived a little late, but they seated us right away. Biscuits were fantastic, large portions. We were able to pick among a few entree options. Enjoyed choices, food was very good. Service was on point. They did run out of pumpkin pie. Oh well.
We've eaten here before and enjoyed it very much, but this time we did it for Thanksgiving. I was not so sure how the food would turn out this visit because the restaurant had prepared a special menu for the holiday. But it was outstanding. I had turkey with all the trimmings. My wife and two daughters had prime rib (same trimmings). The food was delicious, well-prepared, with no drop off from the food on the regular menu. Service was great too. I'm a happy camper.
Incredible food and staff. And on thanksgiving of all days. Highly recommend!
