Very great idea for a family dinner. Had a great time and the female waitress was amazing. She entertained and gave amazing suggestions with every question. Plus it was always superb. Def will make this a more common meal place.

Restaurant was very good, service outstanding. Only thing i didn't like was I had reservations and still had to wait for people that was walk ups instead of seating me and my party sense mine was done in advance.

I order the prime rib and it was cooked very well. However the piece of meat was very fatty so half of it was not edible.

Quick outdoor lunch with my daughter. Server was great. Food was awesome. Lovely outdoor area. Depending on the weather, maybe ask to be sat in the shade. We didn’t and it did get really hot. But it was still a nice experience.

My sister and I hadn’t gone out for brunch since before the pandemic. We’d also never eaten brunch at any of the Farmers Restaurant Group locations, so we figured Farmers Fishers Bakers would be great place to go. Despite the brunch being buffet-style, our server was extremely attentive. She made sure our coffee and water were always filled and our dirty plates were cleared. The food was filling, not heavy, and the brunch offers a variety of foods. From French toast topped with Bananas Foster, to seafood jambalaya (and many more options I didn’t mention), there’s something for everyone.

Buffets in pandemic don't mix well. Came for the weekend brunch and spent the majority of the time waiting in a long line for food. Only 1-2 people were serving food on the buffet line at a time for a line of 25-35 people. Super inefficient ... not all the usual foods were out. Some you had to ask for , others they didn't have or kid behind the kitchen wall. Overall a waste of a $100 brunch

Did not live up to expectations . Although staff was friendly and responsive, the overall experience was disappointing due to missteps on food and drinks. A drink was watery and had to be sent back; salad greens were a bit wilted and in general, the presentation of the salad ordered was visually unappealing; the vegan meatloaf was overdone with salt. On a positive note, the black pepper garlic wings turned out well and the outside dining area is perfect for people watching.

Thank you, CMTL for sharing your review with us. I am real sorry there were missteps with the food/drink quality & preparation during your visit. :( Of course, we also really appreciate you highlighting what was enjoyable about your experience, and on the note of the watery drink, wilted salad & overly salted meatless meatloaf, I would love to make this right! I will send you a follow up note with my email address. -Amy

Really was looking forward to the duck fat fried chicken wings, but no longer on menu. Otherwise salmon, short ribs and crabcakes were good !

Hi LW43: Thank you for your review and I am so sorry to share that we discontinued the duck wings about a year or so ago. :( This was a decision based primarily on the lack of interest in this dish in comparison to our other starters. That said, I have shared your feedback with our Culinary Team for their consideration and we appreciate it! Stay well! -Amy

These is my least favorite of the restaurant chain due to the menu, but you still can’t go wrong at any of their locations. My only complaint was the wait time. We had reservations and weren’t seated until almost 20 minutes later. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that it was a nice fall-like afternoon and everyone clearly wanted to be out at the harbor (on the patio), so I understood the lingering guests wanting to take in the sites. The energy was lively and love their view-the-menu on the mobile site initiative as well as the QR scan to pay for your bill like other restaurants have imposed during these pandemic times. And the Zombies are delicious.

We have wanted to try this place for a while... and am sad to say that COVID has not done any favors. Clearly understaffed... our poor server was spread way too thin, and did not seem to have the time to give us the experience we wanted when celebrating my husbands birthday.

Bummer!! I am so so sorry our service felt shorthanded and sadly & understandably this had a negative impact on the overall enjoyment of your experience. :( I feel badly we left you and your husband disappointed- especially when this was an anticipated visit to celebrate his special day! That said, I would love to make this right and will send you a personal msg with my email address to hopefully connect further. -Amy

I never write reviews, but this experience warranted one and hopefully the restaurant can figure out a way to remedy what seem to be major problems. I used to consider this to be one of the better restaurants in DC as far as food/ambiance goes so it was very disappointing to see the state it was in when I attempted to dine there. All of the unoccupied tables outside hadn’t been cleared/cleaned, the flower pots contained dead flowers or just dirt. Based on what was visible to customers, I can only presume to guess what the kitchen looked like. Once we were finally brought to our table we waited for 15 mins before deciding to leave. Nobody even acknowledged us; there were a total of 7 occupied tables so it wasn’t due to them being busy. We walked next door to Guapo’s and had great service/food so they will be getting my business from now on until Farmers can figure out what they’re doing!

Lovely outdoor seating area. It was a bit sunny and there was limited shade. Food was good, but you’re stuck with whatever options are being served for brunch only. French toast was amazing! Brunch drinks were mediocre.

Their brunch menu is now a buffet only. I wasn’t very impressed by this as my eggs were cold, I had limited options that I could eat, and would have preferred they stuck to the old way of doing brunch. I know COVID has made everyone revamp things, but I feel a buffet is counter intuitive to reducing the spread and adhering to the CDC guidelines.

We did the plated buffet. Most of my hot food items were room temperature. We sat outside and the ambience was not appealing at all. The chairs are old and dirty looking, the flower beds that hung behind us were mainly just dirt. The line was terribly long. And the first batch of cinnamon rolls, that were just left on the table with none of us around, were burnt and cold. The servers were great though! I normally go to the Tyson’s location and have never had an issue. This was my birthday brunch and I must say I was disappointed.

The food at Farmers Fishers Bakers is fantastic. I have been 3-4 times now and I have never left disappointed in the food. All apps are great, specifically the mussels (we got the ones with sausage) and the crab I think they were just pretty packed, so things were taking a little longer than normal. But overall, this place is great, and I definitely recommend it.
