Service was horrible. It wasn't peak brunch time yet, and it took almost 20 mins just to get water. The server on the buffet line was absolutely rude. Rushed me thru the line and showed annoyance when I asked what a dish was. I mean seriously? I wanted to sample more food, but apparently for her I was done. Will NEVER go back there.

Farmers Fishers Bakers is an excellent restaurant with exceptional service and food during the COVID era. Their COVID protocols were fairly standard and did not impact the food nor the service. I will definitely be back!

Brunch food was ok, not worth the price. Server was absent the whole time, had to ask multiple times for an item since the beggining of being there and refills, never received the refills and the item arrived when we were ready to leave. Havent tried the dinning but the brunch is not worth it.

I am so sorry our team dropped the ball with our service during your recent brunch visit. We're equally let down we failed to keep your drinks refilled and your server was MIA during your experience. :( This said, I would love the chance to follow up and turn this around! I will send you a DM with my email address and hope to touch base. -Amy

Our Server, Diejonne (sp?), was ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT. She was so attentive yet gave us the space we needed. The food was beyond delicious! I ordered two plates to go home with me! If you have yet to try this place, you simply must!

Overall, I think they should do away with the Sunday buffet brunch during this pandemic. First off, even though an employee was actually fixing your plate, nobody in line maintained the 6 feet apart rule. Second, the food was often dried out or had no flavor. However, If you ordered something from the back, it was great such as the fried shrimp, biscuits or cinnamon rolls.

Otherwise, the atmosphere was nice, servers were attentive and they did a nice job seating people appropriately.

Thank you, Vikki for sharing your review with us. I am real sorry our buffet brunch service was not enjoyable for various reasons. :( We appreciate you letting us know about the subpar food items & lack of social distancing, and I would love the chance to make this right. I will send you a DM with my email address in hopes to follow up further. -Amy

The line for the buffet was too long. Difficult to communicate with those serving on the line due to masks and plexiglass.

The food was incredible...but the rest of the experience was a train wreck. From taking 45 mins to order (and maybe 20 mins to even get water), to being brought the wrong entree, to having to send back cocktails because they were watered down, not their finest moments. But again, the food was almost perfect, so...

Service was just very poor. Took 30 minutes to get utensils and our drinks. They messed up the wine order twice by bringing white instead of red even after showing them on the menu specifically the wine

The brunch buffet was great but slow. Also servers were not keen to offer server only food that is available and was very slow overall.

The food was yummy and the staff polite, just think the waitstaff was spread a bit thin.

Amazing! The catfish and fig pizza was amazing and they did a great job customizing it to what I said thank you haha. The cheeseburger and margarita were okay to be honest, not bad but not exceptional. But still a great place and Diego is amazing!!!!! Give him a raise :) Thanks for the birthday strawberry surprise haha. Also the girl he was training was very sweet to thanks!! Oh and the manager who checked us in was very nice too

Surprisingly a very bad experience ! We had to wait although we booked a table

Our order was not respected many times. At the end we ate something we did not want to

None of our requests was answered
