Great night. A little chilly in outside patio but to be expected. Incredible food.

Food was great, everything we ordered was tasty. But, due to the pandemic, outside dining was the only option, there were tents but then heat wasn’t enough so it was kinda chilly. The servers were nice.

We had a great experience and the servers were excellent and very attentive. The outdoor seating is well done, and we were warm. Our food was great too!

Dinner was great: we had the calamari to start, prime rib, ribeye, and pizza. We were outside inside a tent due to COVID. There were heaters inside, but they were basically heating one side of the tent and not the other. We were at the other. Our experience would have been more comfortable had there been more heaters on our side. There was no mention of the b-day celebration even though it was mentioned in opentable.

We had a reservation but due to the crowd and chaos we were never seated. After waiting a while we left for a different location.

Oh no! This is very disappointing for us to read, and I am so extremely sorry you left without dining due to our negligence. :( This said, I'd love to follow up and find a way to make this right! I will send you a follow up note with my email address and look forward to touching base. -Amy

I understand the pandemic but when you charge a surcharge for a pandemic fee than I would at least expect a comfortable seat and tables that didn't waddle. Overall service was slow, food came out of cold and far from par on what Farmers used to be. Save your money and either do carry out or find a place that actually cares about what outdoor dining might be

I am very sorry, VAfoodie to read your family's visits this past weekend did not go as hoped and sadly everything (food, service & ambience) all missed the mark. :( That said, I'd love to follow up with you and hopefully turn this around! I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy

I had dined at this location two times before. I loved it so much that I chose to return for a third time to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately, I was late trying to find parking because of road closures. I appreciated that the hostess was still able to accommodate my guest and me in spite of my tardiness. The food, drinks, and desserts were exception per usual.

Because I was late, we sat outdoors, outside of the tent. For that I was thankful. The heating lamps were very effective—maybe too effective: I caution guests not to leave their phone or purse on the table exposed to the lamps because they will get hot. I preferred sitting outside of the tent because I was not confident that the tent had proper ventilation.

Great experience and excellent food choices. Our waiter was great. The only thing I would recommend would be more heaters in the outdoor eating area.

Definitely not a fan of the “buffet but your server brings it to you” option. The food comes out 1 at a time and you just get lost.

I am so sorry our modified brunch service has left much to be desired. :( We really appreciate you letting us know, and will take what you shared into account. Of course, we hope to have you back for another try (maybe for our a la carte breakfast!), and I will send you a DM with my email address to touch base. -Amy

We were there on Saturday Jan 2, 2021 for brunch. We were celebrating two birthdays. My son's 21st and my sister's birthday. We were a party of six. The first thing we noticed were how dirty all the chairs were, with bird droppings, which was not fresh. We each had to pull out our wipes and started wiping down all the chairs, in order to sit on them. We waited between 20 to 25 minutes for our food. The portions are extremely small, if you ask for the fried chicken, they will bring you out a small chicken leg - a portion for a 4 year old. By the time you put in your next request it's another 20 to 25 minute wait. They don't have enough servers - they have food runners and you ask them for either water, another set of silverware and it never makes it to your table. There should definitely be more servers on the floor. I would suggest that if you want to come out to FFB, don't do the brunch at this time. Maybe wait until the pandemic is over and you're able to enjoy it indoors.
Lastly, bring back the drinks that were included with the brunch - e.g. coffee, hot tea or ice tea.

Hi CeeCee: I am super sorry for the multiple mishaps and disappointments that took place during your family's celebratory brunch visit this past weekend. Clearly, we failed to deliver a wonderful experience by all counts (food quality, consideration of service & ambience), and I would love the chance to touch base to hopefully make this right! I will send you a DM with my email address to continue this conversation. -Amy

We had brunch, the foods were cold and served haphazardly. A few items were good such as meatballs, fried 🦐, ciabatta and artichoke tuna spread, the rest might taste better if served warm. The catfish was dried. We had to remind our waitress to bring the meatballs.

I'm gonna give FFB a pass right now due to the covid restrictions imposed in restaurants right now. I was less than impressed with my recent brunch experience but it was obvious they are working out the kinks with the brunch service /menu after having to shift there services to outdoor dining only. Hopefully the food/service will be restored back to the good ole' days of FFB.

Had to wait 15 minutes outside in the 20° weather even though i made a reservation. gave us a tent seat away from the heaters. food was alright, edible but wouldn’t come back for it. The pasta I got the noodles were soggy and broke very easy. It was my birthday so kind of disappointed with how it went. would have had a better meal and spent less money at chipotle.

Bummer!! I am very sorry, Madison for the disappointing outcome to your Birthday dinner. :( I feel beyond awful the table reserved was not ready when you arrived, the table location was not ideal, the food was just okay, and overall your experience was sadly not the best. I would love to follow up with you and find a way to make this right! I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy

Nice setup for outdoor seating. Seasonal cocktails were delicious. Food was great and seafood was cooked perfectly. We initially didn’t have a server, which was understandable given circumstances. We received excellent service once we tracked down someone. Had a lovely lunch and experience this time.

Our family loved it: the best two entrees were the jambalaya and the spicy fried chicken with a donut. The sides (street corner, cole slaw) were as delicious as the perfectly fried chicken and yummy donut!

We came here for brunch. The pancakes were incredible, but the rest of the food was average at best. Portions were small, and all of the meat items were dry and overcooked. A little disappointing.

Outdoor seating under tent. Area looked dirty and there were birds eating off plates. My son ordered the chicken tenders meal with street corn and onion rings and received mini chicken tenders. The onion rings were 4x’s bigger. My what about bob drink was amazing, but that was the only thing. My husband got spicy chicken sandwich and bun was old. Server was good with replenishing drinks. Will not be back. Didn’t seem worth the $120 price tag.

Got there to find out you can only get the $30 unlimited brunch on the weekend. Which was okay but not what we wanted, good food okay service. We sat at the end of the tent where there were holes letting birds in, they were around us the whole meal which was not great for the money your spending. Underwhelmed.
