Food and drinks were great! Just wish the server was more attentive. Waiting for refills and server would just walk by without checking up if we needed anything more. It was for a birthday dinner and server didn’t offer to show us a pastry menu or if there were any specials on desserts.

Most enjoyable but feel they are overpriced for the amount of food. Only 4 scallops in the entree but very tasty Would return for lunch if prices for reasonable lower than dinner.

Great food. Average service. Our waiter was slow and did not understand anything we were asking for (without the mask on /: )

Took forever to make the food (over 30 min), ran out of water 20 min in and never got a refill, took an extra 30 min to get our check.

My experience at Founding Farmers brunch was not great. When you look up their menu online, it looks amazing. However when we got there, it was not what we were expecting. The brunch Buffett was very annoying in the way that you walk up and get your food at the buffet, but not all of the food is there. Some of the items you have to order from your waitress (I’m not sure if they were under staffed, but the service was TERRIBLE). Our waitress would be way from the table for 30 minutes at a time, so if we did need something, it was very hard to get her attention. Also, when we did get her attention, she looked annoyed that we were asking for something else. We were also very disappointed that the dessert section listed so many yummy sweets on the menu, but they were only bringing sampler plates that didn’t even have the same things as on the menu. Very disappointing... I feel like if you list it on the menu, you should have it at brunch. Overall, the food was good, but it’s not worth the bad service and poor setup.

The food was generally good, although my mushroom rueben was a bit greasy and I wouldn't order it again. Last time I visited there was plenty of outdoor seating, but this time I discovered when we arrived that they've gotten rid of it. I requested outdoor seating in my reservation, so it would have been nice if they'd contacted me ahead of time to let me know that was no longer an option. It put me in an awkward position with my companions, some of whom were not entirely comfortable eating indoors given that there is still a pandemic. Otherwise, everything was great. My dessert, affogato with a chocolate donut on the side, was excellent!

The food was okay. They sent out appetizers to the wrong table. I honestly think because it was Mother’s Day and busy, that that was the issue. Long story short our orders were also messed up so the night manager Caleb took care of the tab. Which was outstanding customer service to me. I had been there for my bday in January and my experience was great. We all make mistakes and they held up in their end. I would go back again!!

Server didn’t know the menu very well and what was available on the desert take out menu. We ordered from the desert take out menu and got the wrong thing!

There would be 20 to 30 minutes we wouldn’t see our server. Seemed to only do one thing at a time, never check all his tables at once.

Overall it was not the best we have had and we have been big fans of Founding Farmers.

Unfortunate because it was Mother’s Day!

Service was horrible, the waiter literally kept passing our table before taking our order.

The food was not flavorful.

Buffett during pandemic is not the best but FF did good job adapting and incorporating more table service. Food was very good and service was outstanding.

We always come to Founding Farmers when we visit the area (at least monthly). We love your restaurant! The food was all freshly prepared. Our server was very friendly but not very attentive on this visit.
