We went on thanksgiving Friday night and sat on the patio. The tables were well spaced and the heaters made it very comfortable. Samantha was wonderful and caring. The food was exceptional with very large portions. I would highly reccomend it for a special meal

Lunch was fantastic. We started out with no dip wings Korean BBQ sauce, which were very good. My daughter had chicken Caesar salad and I had the Colossal Stuffed Shrimp. Everything was great will definitely be back.

My wife and I had the prime rib which was excellent and a generous portion. I would have like to see a better dessert choice but the pumpkin pie was delicious.

Food was very good! We would’ve have another beverage but server didn’t notice our drinks were empty. Suggest keeping glasses full. Very courteous! Will definitely be back!

We came out to sit outside on Sunday afternoon. Everyone was so nice an attentive to us and the food was wonderful. It was nice sitting on the patio looking over the green and for a brief couple of hours we actually forgot about the Covid and the politics. It was almost like what Normal used to be.
Too the Staff of the Founders House thank you for the day!

Great service, great set up for dining outside on cooler nights. Loved the lamb meatball appetizer that was a special, but the rest of our dinner was nothing special, a bland veal sandwich, giant flavorless sweet potatoes in the gnocchi and the avocado sweet potato salad was a bad mix of flavors. We would go back just for apps.

Nice Inside table overlooking the green.
Waitress was pleasant.

Ordered a tomahawk steak at $68 asked for medium rare and got rare. Went back to kitchen, which threw off the whole timing of my meal with my wife. Normally I wouldn’t care but the prices on this menu you think you would get some acknowledgement from someone at the restaurant that they messed up your order.

The table behind us was very loud and using profanity. The prices on this menu would lead one to think this is more of an upscale place. They didn’t deliver on ambiance or ability to cook a steak.

We also ordered the mussels pot to start and their version of “bread” at the table is 4 half dollar size of short bread.

Food and service were excellent as was the ambiance, looking over the Milford common and quaint downtown area. Only thing that marred the event was that there was some type of biker gathering in the area and lots of noise when hordes of bikers were driving through. I'm sure that was not a normal occurrence however and otherwise it's an idyllic setting. Plenty of tables for outdoor dining and parking (lot and street) is plentiful. Highly recommend.

My husband and I made an early reservation for 4 and were hoping to eat outside. Outside dining was not available so we decided to eat inside - first time since March. The hostess was excellent and did every thing possible to make sure we felt comfortable. The menu provided plenty of food and beverage options. We enjoyed everything about our experience there - the food and the ambiance. We also had a fun waitress who made us feel right at home. Will definitely return soon.

We sat outside and the patio was very nice. When I went inside to use the bathroom I felt that the dark wood all over and the dark colors on the walls gave it a dark, closed in look.
Even the bar area seemed dark and drab. It was much more cheerful and inviting looking when it was Rainbow Gardens. The food was excellent and all of the staff were wonderful. I thought some of the prices on the menu were much higher then other area restaurants.

Our waitress Samantha was enthusiastic and gave good recommendations. I should have listened to her. We both ordered the corned beef sandwich and it was sliced thick, very fatty, tough and borderline inedible. We should have sent them back.

My friend and I went for lunch. She had a salad and I had the burger. The salad was huge and my friend said it was very delicious (I can’t remember the name of the salad but it was the one with sweet potatoes) . My burger was cooked exactly the way I asked for it to be. It was very tasty. I really loved the fries, skinny, well seasoned, and crispy. I will definitely visit again.

Sat outside on the patio. Loved the outdoor heaters as it was a chilly night. Staff was very friendly. Great libation menu. I found the menu to be pricey. Planning to return for the home made desserts.

Quantity over quality. First of all - all of the prepared food was overly sweet. Drink selections were on point. Food was not. The porkchop was huge but served over carrots and a maple syrup sauce. The stuffed shrimp tasted sweet. The shrimp was huge but the stuffing was bland and I could not taste the crabmeat in it. It seemed like mostly breadding. The burger's bacon jam was way too sweet and overpowering. We like a juicy burger, but not so much that the grease is dripping down the hands as you eat. Our order of bluepoint oysters were deflated and bland. The peanut butter ice cake was huge but was supposed to be chocolate wafers in a light mousse. It ended up being a heavy cheesecake consistency type of cake with soaked oreos floating around it. The only thing light about it was the whipped cream. The only dish our group enjoyed were the no-dip wings and the drinks. For 3, the bill was $175. The waitstaff was great though.
