They ran out of propane so there was no heat when sitting outside. We were cold. That was the only downfall.

Promptly seated. Server was a bit rude, apparently we weren’t ordering fast enough. But she got nicer as meal progressed. Food came out fresh and hot and fast. Great coffee but breakfast was breakfast. Good and prices on par for meal. I would go again. Very busy on Sunday, be sure to reserve a table.

The server didn’t give us a napkin even after we asked multiple times. He didn’t refill our drinks or check in with us after we received our food. We thought it was just because he was busy but we saw him twice roaming around doing nothing just waiting for the end of his shift.

For my first time dining hear my experience was not that great I ordered the short ribs and when I got my ribs they were overcooked and not chewable they were supposed to be bringing me out a catfish which took an hour to come out and then they ended up putting it on top of cold grits with string beans which was not what was asked of the waiter took five years to come to our table and check on my food. I’ll never go at the end of the night because they don’t care

Food was an innovative take on classic American. Very similar to its sister restaurant in DC, Farmers and Distillers.

This place is a really nice spot to go. Although the service is a little lackluster for my first time going to this location. The food is absolutely fantastic though and cooked to perfection. I definitely would encourage people to try this place.

Thank you to Adrian for providing perfect service - attentive but unhurried. The bacon-wrapped dates are a must. The salmon, goat-cheese ravioli with chicken, and honey thyme chicken were all outstanding. The beignets literally melt in your mouth, and my wife proclaimed the chocolate cake the be the "best ever".

Server was inattentive and rude. Food left much to be desired. Ordered the chicken pot pie. Crust was cooked on top but raw in the middle.

Founding Farmers is always a favorite place to go with friends. We really love their whisky cocktails, and the glazed salmon never disappoints. My husband did not love his risotto, but we are generally happy with everything we order here. We will definitely be back.
