Farmers Fishers Bakers or how we called it FFB, is our must go place when family and friends are visiting DC! The food is GREAT, drinks are FANTASTIC and the ambience is AMAZING. I will recommend the restaurant to everyone who is looking for a casual American cuisine. The restaurant is located right by the emblematic Georgetown Waterfront and overlooking at the historic Kennedy Center. Just stopped by and ask your server to bring you the menu and you will not regret-it! With over 150 items on the menu, Farmers Fishers Bakers will not let you down, and regarding price-quality of food & drinks is absolutely amazing. Don't forget to save some space for dessert at the end, their hummingbird's cake is to die for!

Food was great, server was great! Just a few things to note. It’s was Saturday we had a reservation at 6:30pm. We were not late. Got seated around 6:45. (Fine because it was busy) appetizers took a long time to come out. We got the crab&artichoke dip and California roll. Both were great. Entree came out in perfect timing my husband had the shrimp scampi and I had the fishers fry combo. For dessert we got the peanut butter pie. Food was really awesome. Only thing I disliked was the noise. It was hard to hear our server and each other. Would come back, just maybe not on a weekend when it’s so busy. Was looking for a romantic date night and this was just too loud for that.

Manger welcomed us and asked what we were celebrating- super sweet and energetic personality. Service was excellent- our server even took time to make sure the table was wiped between our meals. Mocha expresso was delicious and that vanilla cheesecake was perfection.

I was hoping for a great birthday experience for my partner, but for the price, the experience was not the best. The tableside guacamole was very expensive for the portion you’re given. The fried chicken was over breaded and very salty. The drinks were small for the price and amount of liquor. I wouldn’t go again for a special day.

Food is delicious and with good varieties. We were sitting outside with an umbrella to block out the sun. The waiters were not very helpful in moving the umbrella to the right place for our table of 4 people. So a couple of us felt the heat from the sun beam and it was not pleasant so we did not enjoy as much as we’d like.

The buffet was pretty good, we especially liked the crab dip, French toast, pulled chicken, seafood rice, and cinnamon rolls (delush) . Buffet was $29 per person Make sure you make reservations.

The cinnamon buns were amazing. I filled up on them since I didn’t love the buffet options. Much of the options were over cooked. I stopped eating them. Service was a bit slow. Unsure if it was due to a rush or if the kitchen and barista were backed up. Waters, lattes, mimosas, cinnamon buns, and the check took a while.

The restaurant has a nice decor. The noise level there is pretty low considering the number of seating inside the restaurant. The food is delicious and they provide good size portions.

Sat outside - beautiful setting. Had special trout over Parmesan grits; friend had steak frites. Both were outstanding. Server was attentive an$ helpful (especially with an after-dinner picture by the fountain). Varied menu. Very reasonably priced.

As with most places during the pandemic, be prepared for poor table service. The food was outstanding as usual, but it was painfully clear our server had never before worked in a restaurant. And it wasn't just her; dessert was dropped off with the staff dropping the desseert and then walked away from out table which obviously needed to be cleared. When our server came she had to be asked for clean utensils for the dessert course. When she went to get the utensils and after dropping them, both times she walked away without clearing ANY dishes. We had to specifically request our dishes be cleared so we could have room for the dessert. Please support our restaurants and continue to dine out but don't feel guilty about tipping less than average when you get service that's subpar. Again, the food was wonderful which is what made it worthwhile.

I ordered cioppino and 6 mussels weren’t opened so I couldn’t eat them (usually an indication they may be bad). They did replace them so that was nice of them but honestly I was disappointed they would even serve any mussels that were not opened.
My son ordered scallops with risotto and it was basically just rice with peas, not risotto.
Ordered table side guacamole and it just came out in a bowl. Was not prepared table side.

I like to visit founding farmers locations when I visit my daughter in Md. What started out as a great experience 5 years ago is slowly becoming a decreased quality experience. At the 3000 NW K St. location, I went to the Sunday brunch and found the delivery of any foods from the server (shrimp, biscuits, pizza) were cold and unappetizing. The biscuits especially are not as wonderful as I remember them being the first time I dined at a Founding Farmers. The serving tables inside were not as well maintained as I have experienced in the past and I found the desert bar only by chance from over hearing another customer. There was no indication that it was behind the counter and had to be requested. The salads, which are my favorite, were fresh and fairly well maintained except for a couple items missing several times when I passed by. The staff were all very helpful and accommodating, but I would be hesitant to return to this particular location. I chose it primarily because it had outdoor dining and I have concerns about dining indoors at this particular time.

Food was below average. I had the seafood jambalaya, which was bland and the clams were VERY sandy. My wife had the steak frites and it was mediocre.service was slow and it took forever to get our drinks.

It was good food, the waitress was good it’s just since it was weekend and packed so our food took quite a long time. We seated in the booth indoor and it was really loud.

The server Sean was great. We would never have known it was his first day. We were offered the buffet and did not know thete were other options. The food was horrible. Everything they served was cold. The buffet ended at 3pm, but at 130pm the items at the bar were not replenished. We made it to dessert before 3pm and there were minimal options, understandable, but the bread pudding was COLD and even though she/the dessert server added sauce, the sauce was cold too. The bread pudding was supposed to be butter scotch, but she coveted it in vanilla. HORRIBLE. Finally we asked for kettle corn popcorn as the dessert option for a kid It was stale. Not a little bit, but WHOLEHEARTEDLY stale. The popcorn was like rubber. To wrap it up. This was my first time at this restaurant. I usually go to Founding Farmers. Not sure if I'll come back here again. Very disappointed! By the way the server was great and got a big tip.
