Service was very good even though the waiter had many tables to cover. Food was nicely prepped. The chicken salad was very good, as well as the shrimp. The burger and farmers salad very nice. The soup of the day veg barley was kind of bland

While the graduate and I did not like our food everyone else did. I will say it was our choice in dishes. We've eaten here before for brunch and it was AMAZING. My daughter had the steak and shrimp and I had the stuffed pork chops. However the appetizers we ate were delicious (the dip and wings were a hit). The atmosphere is wonderful. They were able to accommodate our party of 12 even though we were late. I plan to return and this location is better than the DC location.

Before the pandemic, Founding Farmer’s had usually been pretty reliable in terms of food quality and with a good atmosphere. A nice place to have dinner after work or even a special occasion. This is now my third time back since the pandemic and the food is, quite simply, has not been good any of those times. So disappointing. The deviled eggs weren’t deviled eggs - they were uninspired egg salad in a boiled egg. Weird. The wine was pretty average quality but really overpriced for the quality. The fries were dry, cold, burned and soggy. Tasted like they had been made the day before. And the plates were mostly a mess to look at so very little attention to the presentation of the food. The service was the only bright spot. Overall, this was a really disappointing meal and totally not worth the expense. I hope things improve as I hate to take this out of my limited rotation here in the Tyson’s area, but I probably will for a while to come and hope that something changes for the better.

Brunch had a nice selection of food. We arrived only 30 min before it ended so missed out on some things i think. Ordered pancakes from menu and they were cold and small. 😞 But, french toast hit the spot! Shrimp and grits were awesome! Great customer service - we were a little late but they were accommodating! Recommend arriving before 1 pm!!! I will be back!!

The host and hostess were friendly and welcoming. We were given different seating to accommodate our party which was great and our waitress Brittany was wonderful. She was friendly and attentive

Amazing food and lovely dining experience…our group was so thrilled with brunch! Even the kids were still talking about the donuts the next day. Big winner items were the fried chicken, salad options, shrimp and grits were amazing, and the fried green tomatoes were exceptionally well prepared!

Thank you for a lovely experience, we are thrilled to see Founding Farmers back in action!

The iced coffees and eggs/bacon/pancakes were great. For a quiet Friday morning and a small order for two people, it took an hour for the food to come out. Just seemed like a long wait for eggs and bacon. But it was tasty. And the real maple syrup makes the pancakes shine.

An absolutely amazing experience all around, from start to finish and everything in between. The food is always so fresh and well-prepared. I'm quite willing to pay a few more dollars for the freshness and quality one gets at Founding Farmers. The wine selection is always particularly impressive.

I love Founding Farmers but now that they are back at capacity, they either are not well staffed or do not have great staff. From the hostess to the waiter, they were swamped with work and their customer service reflected the same. The hostess was not friendly. The waiter forgot part of the order, and didn't come back to check on us until the meal was 1/2 consumed. He did not seem to care if we were enjoying ourselves. It is unfortunate that the return from the pandemic has created a poor experience for diners.

Our waitress was great but she did not know the menu well. When we specifically asked questions about the dishes to make sure the food is not spicy (due to a capcaisin intolerance) and two of the dishes came out spicy.

She did apologize and other than that the service/food was great!

The food was nothing to write home about. The service was good.
The temperature in the restaurant was very very hot.

Excellent service. As a repeat customer, the food was a little disappointing. Prices are getting a bit high for the quality received.

everything was kinda just averagely done or just 6/10 decent ; like they are trying too hard
Drink seemed to be watered down
Cornbread while good was salty
Centercut ribeye had no flavor in the meat itself and had no sear to it. Reminded me of a carved off section to be honest
Fries were cold
Green Beans undercooked a bit
Donut stupid sweet
Mac and cheese was too rich
