Everything we ordered was AMAZING! From the house made sodas, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, collard greens, to dessert..... Every bite was phenomenal!!! Cravable. Each entree ordered was perfect!

Service was also great! Overall, it was an amazing experience.

A great place for a Sunday brunch. The selections are varied. Reduced a bit due to Covid but worth a visit. Service has always been spot on. Reservations for brunch are recommended .

Not an appealing atmosphere when you are outdoors in rain. It was expensive. And hostess should be aware of where she is seating people. (ie not at a table in a puddle). Food was delicious though.

I made a reservation almost two weeks in advance, showed up on time, but managed to wait 15 minutes for a table and got seated next to the kitchen. After the server moved us elsewhere, our service experience was much improved. Food was very, very good and they are clearly trying their best to maintain healthy, safe precautions while remaining open for business. But, I can only imagine how service might suffer if open fully for business. This was our first time there though, so I admittedly don’t have another experience to compare against. Will try them again as the brunch menu was solid and all offerings were very tasty.

Our service was awful. We told the waiter it was our first time at the establishment and he did not direct us of any sort of menu. He just pointed and said the buffet is that way. The coffee was cold. Our waiter didn't check on us often to see if we needed anything. For the service, it was not worth the price.

Great burgers, great service. No other way to describe getting back out after the last year.

All staff masked. Guests too upon entering. Like the location and layout. But the story remains the food and the service. Both were worth coming back for again and again.

Our waiter, Noel, was great!

However, we were seated outside with a group that needed a private room. The noise level was crazy high. And, the food quality from the buffet (minus the sweets) didn't do it for us. Not a lot of healthy options (lots of bread, breaded items, not many fruits and veggies). I might go back, but not for the brunch buffet.

I have been to Founding Farmers in DC, and I enjoyed the food. I was disappointed with the Sunday Brunch. It just didn’t have that Founding Famers flavor. I sampled a lot and most items were bland, except for the crab dip and the Kale salad.
I would recommend Founding Farmers for lunch or dinner, but not the brunch.

We originally had five people in our party and tried to call an ad for two more. The woman on the phone was not helpful, we went ahead and made a separate reservation for two people and risked just going in and hoping they could seat us close or at least all inside. When I got there, the young lady working was phenomenal. She immediately went and took care of it and put us all together. I completely apologize, I do not remember her name. It was around 6:00 PM on Saturday this past weekend. She was an adorable blonde gal, a little on the shorter side but full of energy! 🤗 we really appreciate her accommodating us and doing it so effortlessly. Mike was our waiter and he was also excellent. He was understated but always on top of things and never missed a beat. It was my first time there, the rest of my party had been there before, so I was truly impressed. The food was great, the drinks were great, and our party didn't want to leave at the end of the night.

Came here with my family for my birthday. Be aware they do not have kids menus or anything to even keep a child merely occupied (coloring paper, crayons, etc). The food was great! Crab cakes, biscuits, and deviled eggs are delicious. Service could have been better.

We indulged in the abundant delights of the Brunch Buffet. Everything was great, including all the extra items that you could order from the kitchen, like Eggs Benedict or Florentine, devilled eggs and friend green tomatoes. The manager brought a special treat over for my friend who was celebrating her birthday. The waitress was very attentive to our every need and request.
