The service we received at your location was very poor. Our waitress never mentioned her name, nor did she seem as if she wanted to wait on our table at all. She was very unpleasant. We did however take into consideration the fact that the service we received, was not your normal services. But our waitress never said anything about it. She just seemed very... unfriendly and unwelcoming. HOWEVER the manager Nelson was VERY, VERY helpful and made our visit much better towards the end. We had a 6 hour drive home and he made sure we left with a better experience. Thank you so much Nelson! We really appreciate all that you did for us! If we’re ever in the area we will definitely give this place another shot. (Thanks to him)

Our server was nice but forgot to bring butter we requested for the waffles we ordered and the order of thick-cut bacon we ordered. Took him a while to come around to our table so had to make our requests with other waiter.

Best pancakes ever! We always love going out to Founding Farmers and this trip did not disappoint. Highly recommend. Just be sure to have a reservation, it’s usually very busy.

Went for my daughter's birthday. Waitress was not very friendly, was clearly in a bad mood, and didn't smile once. When we told her it was our daughter's birthday, she said we well you can purchase a dessert to give her if you want. Not sure if that is the policy, but most restaurants offer at least the birthday person something and we would have bought more. The restaurant wasn't packed as usual, so perhaps she was down about receiving fewer tips, but her attitude likely made that worse. Luckily everyone else was friendly and the food was great.

The food was very good. We all enjoyed our entrees. Unfortunately, it took over 75 minutes before they were served to us! Because it was a work night, we were not drinking or eating heavily, which meant we only ordered three entrees; a salad, a soup and sandwich, and a pasta dish. After about an hour, one of our party went looking for a manager or our waitress, who was missing in action for most of the evening (except for when she took our order). The manager said she'd get right on it. It was another 15+ minutes before our food arrived. They did say that dessert would be on the house to make up for whatever happened to our food (there was never an explanation, which would have been nice). We ordered three desserts and were told that two of the three were not available. It was a difficult and disappointing dining experience.

Hi KittyB: I am real sorry there was a delay with serving your entree order, and while the Manager working was involved & offered dessert on the house, there was a lack of available options which only furthered your disappointment. :( All this said, I'd love to make this right and will send you a personal note with my email address to hopefully connect further. -Amy

Sat at the bar and the service was not great at all. The staff normally walks around with samples and that didn’t happen until we were about to leave.

I put in the reservation that this was for my daughter’s 16th birthday. I called while the girls were eating and the hostess assured me that she marked it on the reservation and that they would put a candle in her dessert. I also asked her to speak with the server and confirm s/he knew too. My daughter got home and said they did not acknowledge her birthday… She said they had a great meal but this part was very disappointing.

Hi GeorgeA: Thank you for your review. I am so sorry to read the buffet brunch was left un-replenished at times, and the pouched eggs were cold in preparation. :( I would love the chance to touch base about your feedback and hopefully turn around the poor impression we left you with this time. This said, I will send you a PM with my email address to continue this conversation. -Amy

This will be a goto spot for brunch! My only criticism is that some items ran out very quickly. I made two trips up and the crab dip was empty each time.

Great selection of food however the fried green tomatoes were never passed at our table; the eggs Benedict are advertised as fresh but did not seem so; brought fried shrimp to the table without sauce which others were receiving; desserts could have been a higher quality and while food was in general good for the price expect better service and quality

Went for friend's birthday dinner and had a good time. The food was pretty good. If you like spirit forward drinks, the Chelsea Manhattan is a must have.

I’ve been to this location several times. My son and I prefer it over the closer Reston location because they have more food offerings during the weekend brunch buffet. There’s usually a long wait even if you make reservations which is annoying, because what’s the point of making reservations if you still have to wait 15-20 mins before being seated? On our last visit, we came earlier than we normal do (10:45am) and were sat pretty promptly (maybe the earlier you come the faster you get seated?). Food selection was great and had all the faves I come for—particularly the shrimp and grits and meatloaf. Unfortunately, mid meal, I found a hair in my potatoes. The manager(?) informed me that she removed the potatoes from the buffet and tried to assure me that all the staff wear hairnets, I guess to insinuate that it was a patron whose hair must’ve wafted deep into these potatoes. Again, we came fairly early and the potatoes were pretty fresh when I scooped them onto my plate. If a hair from a customer did make it in to one of those dishes, it would most likely be on top of the food, not deep into the middle layers you can only get to by stirring. In any event, after I explained that I would not be eating more from the buffet, she offered to comp our meal. The staff is friendly, so I’ll likely be back. Hopefully, no more incidents like this one occur.
