Comparing our brunch buffet experiences per and post COVID, it’s better now. The wait staff brings certain items to the table straight from the kitchen and the buffet has servers. Very safe and the food was delicious as always. A wonderful experience.

There were 6 of us and we all got different dishes. Most were delicious but one order of Turkey was tough and hard to cut and chew. My dish came out with the main cold but the side warm. Portions were quite large. The interior has high ceilings so it was hard to hear our tables conversation over the background noise. Overall 3 out of 5 stars.

I love founding farmers! It is by far one of my favorite brunches around the area. You get the most value for your money with the all you can eat menu and being able to order custom food from the back and a delicious drink menu to top it off!

Excellent service from our server. Food was amazing. We did the buffet brunch and the mimosas were delicious...my fav being the cranberry. Loved how spacious it is and they followed CDC guidelines, which was the cherry on top. Would def recommend not only this place but it’s location.

Food was good. At first we were seated at the furthest point in the restaurant. This made no sense because the entire upstairs was empty. The seating and assignment of tables made no sense. My reservation was 9:00 am in the morning and the hostess wanted to seat us all the way in the back of the upper level and the entire section was empty. We had to complain.

All of the food came out cold except for the chicken. There were alot of people seated in the same area. It didn’t feel very social distanced. The drinks weren’t good.

Founding Farmers is our go to place for great eats. Our waiter was tentative, but not overbearing. He mentioned the specials of the day and recommended menu items. The food was hot and delicious. The restaurant was following COVID protocols as the tables were more than 6 feet apart and the staff wore masks.

Your fire alarm was going off all morning, this made it very hard to enjoy our food. Our server or the manager never offered to take something off of our bill, had I not drove from Arlington to meet co-workers for work meeting I would have got up and left the building.

I am so sorry for the noise distraction with the building's fire alarm going off. :( I understand why this lead to an unfavorable experience and feel badly we failed to take something off your bill for the inconvenienced. That said, I would be more than happy to connect and make this mistake right! Please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review + date dined + location. Thank you for giving us a chance to address this and hopefully turn around our oversight this time. -Amy

Honestly the food took a really long time which would be fine if it had been served properly but you could tell it sat under a lamp. The ketchup served on the side in a ramekin had a skin formed from the heat. For what we paid i don’t see us returning when there are much better options in the area. The server was great and kept our drinks filled and was kind enough to ask how I liked my wine.

For the price point and area it’s extremely disappointing

Always a good choice. Menu has variety, the service is solid. Great non-alcoholic drinks. Food is delicious. Sad it is so empty, but also makes you feel safe.

Nice waiter but the “outdoor seating” at FF is terrible. No ambience and feels like they stuck some cheap tables in a tent. Food was mediocre at best (nothing like it used to be at the one downtown). Nice server. Definitely unlikely to return which is too bad since we used to love FF. If you go, just don’t opt for outdoor dining.
