Great service, great food, and everyone was friendly and helpful
The Thanksgiving dinner was good, however we received our mains and desserts at the same time, and a few minutes we were given the bill. We had barely finished the mains when we were hassled to pay. It was a shame as we didn't have a chance to enjoy our meal as we felt like we were being rushed out. The food was good, however it was not very hot when we received it and as we were sat outside it got cold very quickly.
Oistandkng service with an outstanding meal!
Thank you so much for dining with us, Brett! We hope to see you soon! -Najjah :)
Not good for Thanksgiving. Felt like they were rushing us to get in and out as many people as possible. Like factory Thanksgiving meal. Wait staff were not always available and it was not enjoyable. Drinks and pumpkin cheesecake were amazing, but dinner was average and not worth the cost.
Kim, the wait person, was outstanding. She was very attentive and made our selection of food arrive promptly.
Thank you so much for dining with us, Maria! Please stop by soon! -Najjah :)
Thanksgiving: great service, pretty good food. We did feel rushed though—courses came out before we were ready and there was no slowing them down. Definitely a mixed experience.
Founding Farmers never disappoints! Food is always good, and I prefer the DC location the most.
We are so thrilled to know that you enjoyed yourself! Please visit us again soon, Cornelius! -Najjah :)
We dined in a heated booth outside of the restaurant on Thanksgiving Day. We had turkey, fried chicken, sweet potatoes, roasted vegetables, stuffing, and choice of apple pie, pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. We really enjoyed the food, ambience and service. We were blessed with mild sunny weather. I rate it a 5 out of 5.
Thanksgiving with friend.
Great Thanksgiving meal. Our server, Kim, was amazing! She really made it a great experience. Good food, great choices. Would definitely go again.
Thank you so much for dining with us and celebrating Thanksgiving with the team! I will be sure to pass the amazing review to your server, Kim. Please visit us soon! :) -Najjah
Food was delicious! It was the set Thanksgiving menu but was excellent! I recommend the butternut squash soup, the skillet cornbread and the pumpkin spice cheesecake.
Thank you so much for dining with us, Sarah! We appreciate your review and thank you for celebrating Thanksgiving with us! -Najjah :)
We ate at Founding Farmers on Thanksgiving Day. First I’d like to say that the food was excellent! As good or better than home cooked Turkey Day. The disappointment was that we were given the absolute worse table in the place. We had a reservation but were not given a choice about sitting outside. Our table was stuck out in the open while all other tables were under a tent. When we went to sit down, our table was not only unlevel, but also the top was not firmly attached to the stand. I said it was impossible to eat our dinner on such a table. Thought we would be offered another table, but the server went and got a different table and set it up while we waited. We had a heater, so it wasn’t too uncomfortable. I guess someone gets the worst table, but especially on Thanksgiving, why have a worst table? I felt disappointed in our special occasion.
Delicious food! Terrific service! The “Frozen” cocktail is highly recommended!!!
Great experience and the food was wonderful as usual!
Food was good, overall experience was enjoyable.
We were there while on vacation. The food was amazing. We want to go back everyday while in DC to try everything on the menu.
We were happily surprised by this place! We have already recommended it to some friends that are coming into DC!
Thank you so much and we look forward to your next visit. -Tiffany
Ryan was great. Great timing and energy. Would definitely come back and ask for him.
Wonderful! We look forward to your next visit and we will be sharing with Ryan! -Tiffany
As the stars indicate, we were pleased with the food and service. The so-called background music, however was obnoxious and annoying.
Great food and reasonably priced.
I’ve had better at a chain restaurant. Maybe they were just having an off day. Bacon definitely has potential but you could tell it had been cooked and sitting for a while as it want even warm. Make sure to clarify some things when ordering. I ordered eggs over medium and they came over hard. Perhaps a difference since I’m from further south. The grits are NOT your traditional southern grits, these are a cream corn grit.
Oh no! I am very sorry for the disappointing outcome to your dining experience this time. I would love the chance to touch base and hopefully turn this around! Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your review, date dined & location. Thank you and we appreciate you alerting us to this. -Jessica
Sound salad where bland with no effort for presentation or preparation. Turkey avocado sandwich should be scratched from menu, just awful.
Thank you for your review and I am so sorry for lack of accommodation displayed by our service team. I am also sorry the food ordered failed to fit the bill, and all in all, you were disappointed with your experience. It is sad to say we failed at our first impression, and I'd love the chance to turn this around! Please email me: email@example.com with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Jessica
Good food, bring back the chocolate mousse for 2. The waiting area is brutal. Need a better option but not sure how to make that work. Tent outside?

I just found what I ordered - the deviled eggs and the grilled avocado turkey sandwich - terribly bland. Not how I remember my previous experiences at the restaurant.
I'd appreciate the chance to follow up and turn around the poor impression we left you with- please email me: email@example.com with a copy of your review, date dined + location. -Jessica
Founding Farmers has a wonderful selection of food and terrific drinks...
Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica
They weren’t helpful with any allergies the host never let the server know and when it came to Order almost everything was either crossed contaminated or carried my allergy. The hostess were somewhat off putting.
Food was delicious and our server was amazing. The stuffed French toast is a definite winner!
Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica
I ate breakfast. The food was great! The service could have been a little better, but I have to give him credit as I did not see anyone else servicing. So, they seemed short staffed and nothing took too long, I just had to ask for one thing twice as he forgot. Overall, I would eat breakfast there again.
Great place to eat in DC - the Pot Roast was fantastic!
Fantastic! Please come back soon! -Jessica
Very good food, great service, nice ambiance, nice wait staff. I am a repeat customer and it’s always good!
Beignets were cold and greasy, French toast was cold and greasy, salmon Benedict was ok, scrambled eggs and hash browns were ok
Great menu with a lot of variety. Excellent food. Waiters are very busy, but this is normal in our current environment.
So glad you enjoyed everything! Please come back soon! -Jessica
Food was good with the exception of the cornbread which took over an hour to arrive and came to the table barely warm each time. It also didn’t taste good like I thought it would. They were busy on 11.21.21 so the service was meh at best.
Always a good choice for brunch on a Sunday. Just make sure you make reservations, since it is a very popular spot.
Thank you so much for dining with us!~ -Jessica
Wonderful food and very pleasant service. Highly recommend making a reservation as they are very busy at brunch on the weekends.
Awesome! Look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica
Love the story behind Founding Farmers, coop from North Dakota, great concept! We found Founding Farmers on line looking for a place to have breakfast around the White House, like it so much went back twice. Great food, good service, great back story. Highly recommended
Thank you so much for dining with us! -Jessica
