I love Founding Farmers MoCo! I’ve been eating there regularly since COVID because they have taken steps to keep their patrons safe. They have a large outdoor dining area that they’ve now enclosed for the cold weather. The food is exceptional and the service is always great. When I dine there, I’m treated like family. It’s definitely my favorite restaurant in the area! Thank you!
They have a pretty extensive menu and everything I've had there has been very good. They make their own pasta there every day. The fried chicken is great, the steaks are great, the drinks were great. Every time I've dined there, I've been really happy! Highly recommended.
Our server was great. We had dinner chicken and waffles- Delicious
And our drinks were perfect. Thank you
The service was very slow i had asked for over medium eggs they were very runny &
by the time i ordered one replacement i was done eating & paid my check. I made
sure the tip was more then 20%. I love your restaurant hopefully the service will get
I am so sorry the service was slow and the eggs were not as ordered. :( I also feel badly we left you waiting for the replacement and all in all, this visit was not up to expectation. That said, I would love the chance to follow up and turn this around- I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
I took my mom here for her birthday with a gift card we had received from the terrible service that we received when we attended the first time. First we were seated at a social distancing table and then had to move. We received dirty dishes and the service was terrible. After paying with the gift card we were told the extra $5 couldn’t be used for tip and we couldn’t have the gift card back. The server never came back to our table to receive tip.
Hi Sarah: Oh gosh! I am very sorry to read this and feel terrible for the disappointing experience you & your Mom had with us- especially when this was a return from a previous poor visit. :( This said, I will send you a follow up message with my contact info to hopefully connect further and turn this all around. -Amy
Love this place so much. one of my favorite restaurants.
Good food, excellent service, a sure bet for a nice brunch
We had a nice brunch. It had been a while since we visited Founding Farmers. Delightful. Enjoyed the libations that we bought for home.
Always Always without fail one of THE most favorable brunch places ever! Always fresh, tasty, good variety.. safe PPE practices and lovely staff! When my son visits this is his go too spot!
Excellent service and first rate consideration of how to treat customers during this pandemic.
This place never disappoints. We will keep coming back.
Recommended starter: fried green tomatoes
Recommended mains: Impossible Burger / Plank Salmon / Shrimp & Grits
Recommended dessert: Beignets
YUM x3!! Thanks, DucatiDad for sharing your scrumptious recommendations with us and we look forward to your return! -Amy
Outstanding! The beignets were particularly amazing, with the super tasty dipping sauces. We loved it!
I really enjoyed brunch here but was disappointed it was not buffet style like their location in Philly- which was very nice and the food was excellent.
My daughters and I were thrilled with everything about our meal. It was the first time you’ve eaten out in a restaurant since the coronavirus started, and we were so impressed with all the safety measures that were in place.
I was debating about ordering a couple of different items, and my server gave us excellent advice. I ended up getting the ahi poke AND the ribeye (with sautéed spinach and sweet potato — both excellent) because I was in the mood for a little of each (and of course I had plenty to wrap up to enjoy the next day) my other daughter had the spectacular macaroni and cheese which is some of the best I’ve tasted. We all had different versions of the homemade sodas (hibiscus and ginger) which were all really good.
The girls had desserts: the beignet is in the chocolate cake, both recommended by our server, and both excellent, as I had a bite of each. It’s a comprehensive menu that makes it wonderful for dining out with a group. If you’re lucky enough to get a good server like we had, you’ll get some good guidance on what to select.
Food was great...but they ended up turning up the music but the food was still great!!!
Consistently very good food and service. Having outdoor heaters when dining is such a plus.
Ample to order from on the brunch menu. I enjoyed the eggs Benedict with pork sausages. The service was great. Looking forward to my next meal at this restaurant.
Many thanks, BKMM for sharing this with our team! We are happy you joined us for brunch and also look forward to your return! Stay well! -Amy
Good as always. Chili dog not the best I’ve ever had. Great service
The service and the COVID precautions they have in place are great. However, I’ve been to founding Farmers on May occasions and have found the food to be a lot better than what i had in my last visit. I ordered the chicken and waffles which is a favorite and an order of cornbread. The chicken was very salty, the Mac and cheese lacked flavor. The cornbread was good as usual.
Very sad experience. Food was extremely overpriced for the portions, taste, and overall value. A side of sausage got me ONE sausage link; a side of toast got me ONE slice of bread; a side of bacon was three overcooked, extremely bland pieces bacon for $8 (....and how is that even possible since even average bacon is good). Breakfast for 3 people cost $90 with tip and no alcohol, just pancakes, waffles, eggs, and $4 cups of coffee. And don't forget the pandemic surcharge. This restaurant is neither fancy or special so not sure what they're going for there besides assuming people will be ok with disappointment and a lighter wallet. If you like overpriced, lousy food, this is your place. If not, go somewhere else.
I am super sorry for the disappointing quality and quantity of the food ordered during your recent breakfast visit. :( I feel badly the side items were each a disappointment in their own way, and nothing really WOW'd you. That said, I would love the chance to follow up and will send you a PM with my email address to touch base further. -Amy
Over priced and over rated. Will not return. $65 for breakfast when we actually wanted brunch.
HI Linda: Thank you for your feedback and I am super sorry your experience left much to be desired. :( I would love the chance to learn more about your visit and what your review means to hopefully make this right. I will send you a DM with my contact info to continue this conversation. -Amy
The food was good, like always. Still a bit pricey. Recommend always getting a reservation for brunch.
Thanks gene for your review, and we are real sorry to read the food- while good- still left something to be desired. :/ Of course, we hope to have you back for another try and please call us: 301-340-8783 for any reservation help needed. -Amy
Everyone enjoyed their entrees! Service was excellent.
We were sat quickly, but my friend wanted a table that was more isolated, and they were happy to move us. We got service right away, and our food came out very fast. It seems like the outside dining is very sought after right now because of COVID but indoor was perfectly fine. The server stayed far back and had her mask on the whole time. Nothing sketchy going on here. The food was as usual delicious. I am however, sad that they don't add the honey to the honey butter like they used to, and that the butter is a little harder than it used to be, but I assume it is because they are high demand for these COVID times, and they need to cut some corners. Totally get it. Overall great experience and delicious food out fast.
Went for dinner with my young niece. She loved the Avocado burger and I enjoyed the Beyond meatloaf, though it was a little too salty. I server and staff were exceptional though, as always.
Great service; great menu selection. Great spacing between tables in the upstairs dining room. Would definitely recommend to friends!
Always amazing here! one of the best restaurants in MOCO!
Founding Farmers - Park Potomac has great food and great service. Highly recommend visiting this restaurant!
Good amount of seating in tent with heaters. Service was good
Thanks Bob! We appreciate you sharing this with us and hope you'll be back again soon. :)-Amy
Was a great experience as far as the food and the price for happy hour. The service was horrible. Beyond horrible.
The spicy fried chicken was crunchy but too salty.
Excellent food, great service, good social distancing
Portions were very small and prices were inflated. We ordered an apple dessert that was cold and there was nothing except an apology. How about make it right or offer to box up a dessert so we could bring it home? A third option would be to comp the dessert. None of those were offered. We will not be returning to the restaurant for any occasion in the near future.
Hi Robin: I am super sorry for the disappointing food quality and cold dessert during your visit on 11/10. I also apologize that our team failed to make this right before your departure. :( That said, I would love to try to turn this around, and will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
Always good and very accommodating
Thanks Ellen!! We appreciate it! :) -Amy
The outdoor patio was beautiful and yet Covid safe.
Very pleasant atmosphere. Ample outdoor seating. Food was average
