Highly overrated. 20 minutes late seating us after we checked in 15 minutes early. At least 10 mins at the table before we even received a glass of water. Food was marginal and overall service was poor. It was a highly disappointing evening from a dining standpoint. Of all the places we could choose I am sorry we selected this place.
Celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday here and really enjoyed the service, atmosphere and food!
Great food! Mussels for an app were delicious. Split the tuna and spicy fried chicken jambalaya with my brother - both were excellent. The fried chicken was not spicy, but still good nonetheless. Also great drinks! Service was good for the most part as well. Great place to take family/visitors.
Amazinn experience. Great care was taken to separate tables and make us feel safe !
Thank you so very much! We really appreciate your praises from your visit, and already look forward to safely serving you again soon! :) -Amy
Farmers Fishers and Bakers is one of my favorite brunch spots but my last visit was not the best. We were told that due to Covid, they had implemented new rules for a socially distanced brunch experience which is fine. My issue was our waiter who’s service was very sub par. Initially we thought he was scarce because of the social distancing. Then my girlfriend pointed out a waitress in the section just next to ours who was bringing her tables many options that weren’t on the buffet. Additionally, we had to constantly summons our waiter for basic things, refills on coffee and water, clearing our plates so we could return to the buffet etc. I love the Farmers restaurants but this visit was truly disappointing.
The food was fantastic and it was really lovely to have a safe dining experience during Covid. I love that the brunch is still an option. Our server was working with only our table for the majority of our stay and it was taking 10-15 minutes to order a drink or get our plates (food was prepare.) That was very frustrating considering no one else was dining that early. But the food made up for the mediocre service.
The food was tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Birthday celebration. The staff was extremely attentive and hospitable. Excellent experience!
We had an amazing dinner! The food was fantastic and fresh and served piping hot I will definitely be coming back!
The service was stellar and the ambience was beautiful. I did not care for my entree however, which was the fried catfish. It lacked seasoning and flavor. My sushi appetizer was great however.
Mediocre. Especially for its prices and quality of food.

Great food...nice patio seating, however, the waiter wasn't as attentive given how hot it was
Excellent service. I was starving and it was hard to decide what to eat but our server was very patient with us. Thank you Kevin.
Steak ordered medium rare was overcooked to well done. Drinks weren't that great. Super disappointed.
Outdoor seating is nice and shaded.
This was the first time dining out since the pandemic started. It was a pleasant experience and the food was great. Highly recommended.
We will definitely be back soon!
I had an 11:45 am outdoor reservation. The restaurant called around 10:45 am to apprise me that there would be no outdoor tables at the time of my reservation but there would be at 12:15 pm. I didn’t know how they could guarantee that and as it turned out, they couldn’t. I arrived at 12:15 pm promptly and my party wasn’t seated until 1pm. We stood in the sweltering heat for 45 mins. No effort was made to demonstrate regret, not a round of drinks, a free dessert, or a small discount on the check. Not to mention that the food was lackluster. It was a miserable experience and I will not be returning.
We made reservations for the patio and was seated at the table with direct sunlight; the table was so hot it burned us to touch. We asked three times to be moved, but ignored. Two tables came available and we asked if we could move bc our clothes were drenched and was told they had sanitized the open tables and would have to sanitize ours (I think my nearly $100 tab was worth it). We became so uncomfortable we couldn’t continue eating, so I asked if we could get popcorn and a key lime bar to go and was told they couldn’t bc it was brunch....I said we can’t continue to sit in this heat bc we’re drenched. Nonetheless, I just paid my tab and left! Worst treatment ever!!! I supported this restaurant during the pandemic and continued to and this was our treatment! Food was excellent, but work on some of your employees...I will add this is my first bad experience. The waitress was Christen
I am real sorry, ConsueloH for the disappointing brunch experience you had based on the location of your table and lack of accommodating service displayed by my teammate. :( I agree the outcome to your visit could've been totally different had we helped get your table out of the sun, and we appreciate you alerting us to what happened. This said, I would love the opportunity to touch base and hopefully turn this around. I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
It was great food, but with COVID, the line was a bit slow and the servers were really having to work to get food distributed.
The food was good but the dog size policy needs to be revisited. Small dogs are fine but someone seated a few tables from us had a large dog that was shedding everywhere when the wind blew so his hair ended up in all of our food and drinks. Initially the management wanted to displace us instead of inconveniencing the owner by asking him to move to another table. They finally resolved it by moving him, but that should have been the initial response.
The food was so good and the service was wonderful. Our server Monae(sp) was a breath of fresh air. I would definitely go back.
The place is good. We go there frequently and like the ambiance
Thanks Dee! We are so happy to read this, and really appreciate the 5/5 rating! :) -Amy
Farmers, Fishers, & Bakers was an excellent restaurant! The menu options were creative and fit all my foodie desires. The garlic wings (appetizer) was 10/10! Our waiter, Drake, personable and accommodating to our dining needs at all times. My only complaint would be that we had outdoor seating and a reservation, but we ended Up waiting 20+ minutes to be seated. It was a Saturday, so I understand that it was busy. Overall, our food was amazing and we couldn’t stop talking about it the next day. Beautiful location by the waterfront and even tastier food and creative drinks! 10/10.. I would highly recommend this place for couples or friends getting together for lunch or dinner!
Requested to sit outside on patio which I was promised. When we arrived we were shoved inside. My boyfriend and I were both sweating bullets. We asked the manager to maybe open a window or get some type of airflow: come to find out the AC has been broken for 3 days !!! The food was terrible and rushed. Also the water we received was warm. They didn’t even give us ice. The manager seemed not to care that we were dissatisfied. Do not recommend, over priced hospital food at best.
I am very sorry we were unable to accommodate your request for the patio this time, and also apologize for the overly warm dining room, under-whelming food quality & subpar service. :( With this all acknowledged, I would love the chance to turn this around & hopefully make this right, and will send you a personal note with my contact info. -Amy
Very inefficient in assigning table even though we had a reservation.. ours was for outdoor seating and I showed it to the front desk but she kept saying we only have table inside
Food was good
No matter whether a pandemic or regular life, this location just cannot get it together for guests with reservations. Dont make people wait 20 minutes and claim it is covid - every time i have gone here it is always crap with the reserved times. And clearly state online that Saturday is all brunch / surprised when we were seated and this was the “option” I think I have tried enough times with this location and going to give it a hard pass in future. I will say our waiter was outstanding - shame he has to deal with the continued shortcomings of the restaurant :(
I am so sorry for the additional wait you had this time (and any other time you've visited!), and I also apologize our buffet was unknown- our menus on our website are listed as "weekday breakfast" & "weekend brunch" as an attempt to help avoid this type of confusion- which I feel badly there was still a misunderstanding. :( That said, I would love the chance to connect about your feedback and hopefully turn around our shortcomings- I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
Amazing service and amazingly fresh and fun food!
Awww! Thank you for your AMAZING review! :) We appreciate it and hope to have you back soon. -Amy
The waffles wasn't all that. But the waiter and service was amazing
Everyone was wonderful, food was terrific, a little warm due to AC being out.
Came out with my best friend who’s visiting from Vegas.
Thank you! We appreciate you & your friend joining us, and we hope to be able to welcome you both back sometime soon. :) -Amy
Unfortunately we did not complete our dining experience here. After being rudely greeted we were shown to our table and sat there for over 10 minutes. We decided to leave because it was clear they did not want us there. We were the only diners there at 9am so there was no excuse for the waiter to not come out.
I am SO sorry to read you left without being served, and this is absolutely the most disappointing feedback to receive. :( That said, I'd love the chance to follow up and hopefully turn around the poor start to your visit this time. I will send you a personal note with my email address to hopefully continue this conversation. -Amy
Never disappoints. Excellent service in near 100 degree weather!
We were so looking forward to a yummy dinner. We got there early- before our reservation- waited for a few minutes and then were seated. Heat wave outside- AC didn’t seem to be working. Huge industrial fan inside.
Waited and waited for waitress/ water. Plates were brought to our table by a woman/ didn’t introduce herself as our wait but it turned out she was. 3/5 plates had tiny bits of dried food on them. Keep in mind- there’s a pandemic(!!) and we were given dirty plates! That should have been our clue to leave right then. Probably another 5-7 minutes carafes of water brought to table. No ice- luke warm. So now we are thinking maybe there’s a refrigeration/ cooling problem. We had to ask for ice but only 1 glass of it was brought out/ we asked for 4 more for the rest of the table. Apps come/ delicious. Calamari and guacamole and crab and artichoke dip.
Main dishes - fried chicken and donut - yum. Ribs/ delicious. Seared ahi tuna - disgusting. It was pale grey on the outside. As we cut into it (3 of us ordered this as our main) - it was stringy. The whole thing was cold / it was if the pan sear wasn’t hot enough. The manager was at the table next to ours and I called her over. She said it’s supposed to be served cold (nothing mentioned on the menu) but took it away for us. Waitress came over to us after - literally the unhappiest woman I have ever had as a waitress- and didn’t even bother acknowledging that we sent our food back. Bizarre. Incredibly rude.
I will never go to any of these restaurants again.
Oh no! Sandy, I am incredibly sorry for the disappointments that took place with our ambiance, service, cleanliness of our plateware, & preparation of our Ahi Tuna entree. :( I feel badly our team failed to turn around your dissatisfaction in the moment, and would love the opportunity to do so! That said, I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
Carlos was a great server and the restaurant did a great job with social distancing and COVID-19 restrictions. Everyone that entered the restaurant wore a mask, as well as all staff. We sat outside and for the most part everyone had on a mask until seated. They also blocked certain walkways so people walking by that potentially weren’t wearing masks would not be close to those dining. I was very nervous to eat at a restaurant during this time, but they made the experience comfortable. Carlos even asked a couple who moved their table closer to ours to move it back when they tried to escape the sun. I appreciated that.
The food was okay, at best. I ordered the Hot Crab and Artichoke dip, which turned out to be extremely greasy. We saw our server all of twice, and had to ask another server for our check—they weren’t busy due to Covid-19 restrictions. It was a nice location, but I can’t say I’ll be back.
Air conditioning doesn't work in half of the restaurant, the corner where we were seated. As much as I enjoy eating so much that I sweat, I don't like sweating so much before I can even eat. I normally love this restaurant and all of their sister properties! But the heat was pretty difficult in the 100-degree day.
Gabe, my apologies for the overly warm environment this time. :( I am so sorry this happened and please know, our Management Team has fixed our AC unit since the posting of your review. We really appreciate it and hope to have you back for another try sometime soon! -Amy
Too hot; management was not accommodating to reseat with brutal heat outside; dish was not available after placing the order; food is great as always!
