This was my first time coming to Founding Farmers for brunch. The food was very good for the most part. Maybe because it was a buffet, some of the items ended up being a little overdone. For example, the muffin under the eggs benedict couldn't even be cut with a knife. The waiter was attentive and made sure that our glasses stayed full and dirty dishes removed promptly. Although full, the restaurant did not feel overcrowded. We were not rushed to vacate the table, which was very nice.

Food here is always excellent, with a ton of tantalizing options for the Sunday brunch! The ambiance is classy, earthy, wholesome & family-friendly. I love everything about this place EXCEPT the relaxed policy on mask-wearing, staff included. This is the only reason they don’t earn a 5/5 rating from me. This is a concern, especially since young diners under 12 yrs (such as my son) are unvaccinated.

Expect to spend at least 2 hours here and have your waiter disappear for 10-20 minutes at a time when you need something. Everyone working appears extremely stressed out and rushed and the atmosphere is chaotic.

Poor service, wrong meal for me (and it was cold) - had to wait 10 minutes to get my correct meal, my wife and friends meal was cold too.
I did not ask to speak to manager but waitress told him about my experience…. He apologized.
Would not recommend to others.

The buffet would sometimes run out of items when I would go back to get food. It would be nice if the buffet table is always fully stocked al the time

Weekend brunch buffet is delicious and loaded with options! We got several plates per person. Staff was attentive and cleared plates quickly. Food was always available or quickly refilled.

Met with college friends visiting from out of town. Our server was wonderful and let us sit there for a long time with no pressure. The food, although I don’t like buffets, was very good if just a little like warm instead of hot sometimes.

I went with my husband for a Saturday brunch. For this Saturday brunch they did not have a lá carte option only buffet. I noticed some of the servers were not wearing masks and a great percentage of patrons were also not wearing masks. People were breathing on top of the food (none of the food had shields for protection). Closed to me at the buffet was a father with a child coughing non-stopping. The restaurant didn’t have a buffet supervisor to avoid this type of situation from happening. Since the food were exposed they should have required masks to go to the buffet area.

Date night with husband was wonderful! So happy to see FF have Early Mountain Rose - one of our favorite Virginia wineries! We were lucky to have Jack as our server. He was attentive, informed and really made the experience that much better. Thanks Jack!!! We paired our wine with the Brie farmers bread and spread. As we looked around we saw many other tables enjoying the Southern Fried Chicken especially with the mouthwatering doughnut. FOMO moment for sure! My husband loved the southern fried chicken and I loved the steak frites. We will definitely be back again. Many more yummy foods to taste!

We were really looking forward to dinner. Got seated right away, only to sit for 10 minutes with no greeting. The ambience is not great. We decided to leave and will not return. The service really needs improvement.

Service is meh. Given price point you’d think it would be a tad more attentive. Maybe this Covid world is changing how others serve?
