We arrived at 7pm on 1/20/2022 at the Tysons Founding Farmers location. The service was terribly slow. My friend received his old fashion 10 minutes before I received my glass of wine, in which the drink order were placed at the same time. At least our waitress apologized about the slow service and was polite about it.

The food was good. At the end of our dinner service I asked our waitress about parking validation. She told us we could scan our ticket at the front by the hostess stand. We went to the hostess stand at 9:15pm, that's how slow our dinner service was.

There was no hostess in sight and we saw the machine to scan our tickets. I proceeded to scan my parking ticket. This rude black woman with blonde braids and a beige crop top sweater (inappropriate attire for a food service setting) walked up and said with an attitude "Excuse me please don't do that." She flicked her braids at us and then shoved her coke can to the side. I turned to my friend and said that was kind of rude of her. He said "Kind of rude, that was completely rude of her." She never thanked us or told us to have a good evening. The hostess had the worst customer service and the worst attitude. On top of the slow service and rude hostess we were tacked on a restaurant recovery fee and received degradation of service. The hostess should be reprimanded for her behavior.

our 2nd visit to Founding Farmers, we very much enjoyed our 1st and 2nd visit. Unfortunately, on our 2nd visit they were out of a few things, so a little disappointment there, however, no problem. Everything was very good just as it was the 1st visit.

I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the food and service. The short ribs were some of the best I have ever had. My granddaughter loved her prime rib. The place was busy but our waitress hustled and gave great service. We will be back.

Birthday. Service was petty shabby— thankfully it was buffet brunch but seemed like forever just to get a a glass of water

Brunch buffet- great potential but most of the (supposed to be hot) dishes were lukewarm or cold. Biscuits were hard as a rock. This is one of my favorite restaurants but the brunch is not done properly. Come when you can get made-to-order deliciousness.

There were no food options aside from the $30 all you can eat option. We were not that hungry but we’re forced to do that. At that price it doesn’t even include basic coffee. Service/gratuity is really just refilling water and taking away dirty plates since the food is self serve but I still tipped what I normally would but for two people with tax and tip that adds up to $80+ for a self-served, not made to order breakfast. Atmosphere was nice. Food selection was vast but much of it seemed like it had been sitting out for awhile. I think it would be better if the portions put out were smaller to allow for more frequent restocks. We came to be social with friends and the reason we would return would be for similar reasons - not for the food or value.

The food was just okay and not really anything that special for the price of $33 per person. Also it’s a buffet only for Sunday when I went so your locked in to that as your only choice. And the service was terrible because they came by for initial drink order and then maybe I saw the guy 30 minutes later when he brought me cream for my coffee. There are way better brunch places in northern Virginia for cheaper prices.
