No one liked the food they ordered. Friends were not impressed by the drinks. Overpriced. We will not be doing happy hour here again...

Farmers Fishers Bakers is an overpriced, very crowded restaurant. The service was incredibly slow and inattentive and I would not return.

There are many options on the menu and the value for the quality adds up well. My main issue was drink orders take a while to come and our waitress never checked on us after taking our food order. She came quick and often to get the order but once we placed it never saw her again.

I went for my birthday, trying to go somewhere I never been and I didn’t like my food. I ordered the Fry combo and the crab cake wasn’t a crab cake at all it was a filler. The fries were pretty good and the fried shrimp but then I still switched my food to the All American Double Burger which was good but It took for me to switch my food to have a great time on my birthday. My first drink I ordered I had to send back as well because it was nasty

Bummer. :( We are so sorry the initial meal & drink you ordered fell short, and you needed to switch entrees and send back your beverage to better your Birthday experience. That's a true let down for our team to learn as well, and I'd love to make this right! Please email me a copy of your review, date dined & location: Amy@FRG.Farm to continue this conversation. -Amy

Great food and fun vibes near the waterfront in Georgetown. Service staff seemed a little overworked (maybe thinly staffed?). Otherwise great place.

We were celebrating a birthday. I should have known it was not going to be a good evening when the hostess said they would charge us a $3 per item "slicing fee" to serve the small cupcakes I brought that complied with our dietary issues. After we sat, we waited 20 min for someone to stop at our table for a drink order. And anther 5 min after that just to get water. Then got talked into appetizers that were "so small you should get two" - when one was more than enough - and waited an hour for food after that, which came cold. The vegetarian at our table ordered an impossible burger, and practically choked when she realized it was meat. The manager argued with me that the impossible burger tastes like meat so maybe she was mistaken. No, the order was mixed up. Various other issues with food but we stopped complaining because it so hard to get someone's attention and it seemed like to would only prolong our unpleasant experience.
Manager tried to make nice by bringing us a bunch of non alcoholic froufrou drinks that none of us wanted or liked. She took off about 1/4 of bill as well.

The waitstaff for our table was friendly. The trainee, adorable. Seriously understaffed! More hostesses than waitstaff. The hostesses sat guests quickly; however, the waitstaff was unable to meet the demand for service. It took 25 minutes for someone to come to the table to acknowledge us, but after my companion and I requested assistance at our table four times, not including the manager on duty.

They did not accommodate our reservation time.
It was extremely busy and loud.
We’ve been here many times in the past and did not have this experience.
Food was average.

It was a very disappointing experience. Had a reservation, made weeks ago, confirmed 3 days in advance, for 6:30 for an outside table. Arrived on time. Waited for an hour for our table. Checked in with the hostess 3 times and she said something about when we reserve it's for a specific table and that table wasn't available even though there were open tables available. We left to find another place to eat. It's surprising because we've been here before (pre-pandemic) and even though it's always busy the reservations are honored and the service is usually quick. Big disappointment as it was supposed to be a graduation dinner. Not sure what happened FFB....but you let us down.

The food was delicious but expensive. They are adding a 5% fee to make up for the pandemic. Not sure that is the customers responsibility since we are coming out to eat to support the restaurant. Ask for ice as water is served room temperature.

Subpar. They try to do everything so they don’t do anything particularly well. Was not impressed with the cocktail that is their most popular one

Begin with the crab and asparagus dip! Delicious, but it could have been because of the flatbread served with it!! I don’t know what it was seasoned with, but it was delicious!! Wish they sold it…it was hot and crusty!! The entrees were delicious…especially the shrimp scampi served with gnocchi! Nice difference!

So sad, I was disappointed with weekday breakfast. Worst chicken and waffles I've ever had. Nothing tasted like it was made from scratch. Not real maple syrup. The gravy was super salty. The scrambled eggs were overcooked. I had dinner there a couple of years ago and it was great, so I had higher expectations.

This place used to was one of my favorites. However, for the second time in a couple of months, I was disappointed by its service. The service is down so much compared to the "pre-covid" times. It looks like most of the personnel are newly hired, and they do not even care about their customers. The questions that were always asked before - "Do you have any allergy?", "How was the food?" - are in the past. Nowadays, when three of us asked to split a bill, the response was, "I forget what each of you ordered." C'mon, our entire order included three entrees and two beers, it is not so difficult to separate it between three people. Maybe we just got unlucky with the service, but it happened two times in a row....

Overall the experience was good but I do think management needs to be trained on addressing people by their proper pronouns. I was called everything but what I am and that’s a Natural born Man. I am not a They, she or anything else she chooses to call me. Manager didn’t apologize for calling me a they , she just walked away. Appetizers were great and the food would’ve been as well
If It was cooked all the way through .
