My food came out in good timing and the service was great. I was surprised that my side dishes were hardly warm while my main course was hot. They were all on the same plate. Nonetheless, I was pleased with my meal.
We had brunch on Sunday but had terrible service. Our waiter wasn’t pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable or friendly. If we asked for something he rolled his eyes at us and basically grunted.
There was also plastic in my friends dish which was addressed by the manager. I come here a bit and have never experienced such bad service from the wait staff.
Fantastic experience. Made reservations early to avoid the crowd. Food and service was exceptional. Parking was a breeze.
So glad you had such a great dining experience! Look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica
It was cold in the tent by the time we
Were ready fir dessert.
Our server, Jose, was great.
Fantastic! Thank you so much for those kind words! I will definitely pass this along! -Jessica
The food was DISGUSTING! I was soooo disappointed. I had heard so many great things I decided to try it out on restaurant week. I didn’t actually didn’t partake in the restaurant week menu. My sister had the shore style fest and I had a dish from the brunch menu. Our food came out cold. The water had particles floating inside. It was just an underwhelming experience. I will never be back not even if some treating me to a free meal.
I am very sorry for the disappointing outcome to your visit this time. I would love the chance to touch base and hopefully turn this around! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your review, date dined & location. Thank you and we appreciate you alerting us to this. -Jessica
Visit was for my mother birthday brunch. New to the area and selected this restaurant due to the great reviews and photos. I ordered a southern chicken meal with Mac and cheese and sweet baked potato(which needed to be cooked a little longer). My mother ordered the create your own breakfast; grits(gritty), chicken( when it was hot it was good, but wanting to eat it later wasn't worth it), eggs, and biscuit(was to hard). My sister ordered the French toast w/ vanilla filling(the breading was thick and not enough filling). Service was good, the atmosphere was great, and the beverages were cool.
I would recommend this place at a good place to eat. The only problem we had was with our server who wasn’t very attentive for our needs. Overall I would give this place 5 stars if we had better service!
Breakfast menu (besides the beignets) was pretty terrible. Everything lacked flavor and the grits looked and tasted horrible.

We appreciated that there was plenty of space between dining parties. It felt like a safe arrangement.
Service was amazing, staff was attentive. Highly recommend FF for anyone wanting a great meal and friendly service.
Great service and food. The plank salmon was amazing
Food is usually really good (note that we’ve only ever ordered to go other than today) but today it was really subpar. I had to unfortunately send a dish back because it was burnt. I was surprised it even left the kitchen. Our server was nice at first but soon seemed like she was irritated and never came to check up on how we were doing or came to refill drinks. The only thing I can think of that might have annoyed her about us is that we were waiting on a fourth to join us but we ordered drinks and an appetizer in the meantime. It could’ve been other tables that got under her skin but it’s unfortunate that we experienced the backlash from it. Don’t think I’ll be dining here again. 🤷🏻♀️
The egg scrambles were delicious and adding cheese to the grits made them extra tasty.
Overpriced, overrated. Server couldn't be bothered with us.
Thank you for your review and I am so sorry for lack of accommodation displayed by our service team. I am also sorry the food ordered failed to fit the bill, and all in all, you were disappointed with your experience. It is sad to say we failed at our first impression, and I'd love the chance to turn this around! Please email me: Hospitality@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Xenia
Our server was helpful and courteous! The food was amazing and fresh! I had the Crazy Corn Salad, totally recommend it to anyone!
Our waiter was very attentive. The devilish eggs were delicious. The Mac and cheese was also very good. The prime rib was flavorful but not the best cut of meat and was very hard to cut up. Drinks were delish!
Everything was very good except we got seated beside the busboy station. Since I had a reservation, I expected better seating (there was a booth open). The busboy interrupted our conversation a few times thinking we were talking to him.
Enjoyed it. Scallops and yankee pot roast were amazing
Great! Hope you will return soon! -Tiffany
Great lunch and great service. It was cold out so we went with warm dishes. Server recommendations didn’t disappoint. The enchiladas and street corn and the shrimp and grits were a hit. Yum.
Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica
Fish of the day was trout. I tried it meuniere style. It was dry, a rare disappointment in a joint I like.
I don't know how this restaurant has survived this long. Very expensive for the quality- which to me is about a small shade above Applebee's. We had someone at our table order a chicken fried steak- it was a HUGE hunk of very over-fried meat. They couldn't really eat it. Bland deviled eggs, mediocre artichoke dip. My winter "stew" entree that was supposed to have lima beans, chickpeas, and barley, was a small bowl of chicken soup with carrots, zucchini, potatoes in a broth- had to ask for the "scratch" made bread that was supposed to come with it ( two slices of a standard loaf). It was so bad I didn't bother to say something. We had a four top - two got ice cream, we ordered two additional desserts- when they came they were family size, - for which our server could have mentioned this instead of pumping up our bill, one dessert was overcooked/ almost burned on top ( bread pudding). I will never be back I have other places to spend almost $300.00 for four people.
Hi Mary! Thank you so much for your review. I am so sorry for such a disappointing experience. I would love to help turn around this experience. Please email me at Hospitality@FRG.farm with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Tiffany
I went to the Tyson’s Corner location a couple of months ago and the service was beyond bad. Staff was rude and not at all accommodating. I left a review and one of the owners responded within a couple days graciously offering us a gift card to give them another try. We went to the Bethesda location this time and the service was far better there. I won’t be returning to the Tyson’s location but will definitely go back to the one in Park Potomac.
We appreciate you giving Founding Farmers another try! Thank you so much for visiting our location and we look forward to your return. -Tiffany
We had reservations in the heated tent, though the blower and people talking over it was too loud. The wait staff quickly and graciously found an in-door space. As expected, it too was loud with a brunch crowd - that was to be expected.
The salads we ordered were not that good and didn't 'blend'. I had the steak and blue cheese salad and the steak was not good, the flavor was off.
One of us had scrabbled egg, biscuit and grits and we all decided that was the best way to go.
Oh no! This is not at all up to par with our intentions of service and I'd love the chance to turn around our mistakes this time. Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your review, date dined and location. Thank you for alerting us to this and hopefully giving us a chance to connect and make this right. -Jessica
Great food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are equally delicious.
Thank you so much for dining with us, Tammy! -Tiffany
The table was ready on time, the staff was attentive, and the food/drinks were very good.
Great waiter Jordan made the whole experience delightful by guiding us through our choice by making solid recommendations. To me the waiter is as important as the food. You need more Jordans!
So glad you enjoyed everything! Please come back soon! -Jessica
