Noise level was so loud you could not hear anyone speaking at the table. Almost deafening. Entree portions had been significantly reduced. Won’t be back until after the “recovery” surcharge stops.

Our first dining experience at Founding Farmers was excellent. The food, drinks and service were all top notch; and the prices very reasonable. We will definitely go again.

Founding Farmers (Tyson's) is one of my go-to locations for business meetings. The ambience is ideal and the food choices are superb. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful.

I love founding farmers but was disappointed to learn we had to do the buffet since it was a holiday. A lot of the food was room temp.

I liked the ambience, not food. Ingredients were fresh, but cooking was not impressive.

The service was not very good. We also never received our appetizer and waited 45 minutes to get our bread pudding so obviously the kitchen was also very slow. We were disappointed with our dining experience even though our waitress was apologetic at the end and did take off our dessert.

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: Hospitality@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Kerry

Do not go during brunch if you are on a special diet. Unfortunately, it is not permissible to order directly from the menu until 2pm and later. So you will pay $33.00 for one plate of buffet brunch food. Lesson learned!

Thank you very much for your review, Tanya. It is true, we do not offer an a la carte option during our Farmers Market Brunch Buffet. That said, I would love to have you come back for a better experience. Please email me: Hospitality@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location. Thank you again for your review and I look forward to making this right. -Kerry

We tried the brunch for the first time, we honestly wouldn’t do it again. It wasn’t the most “pandemic friendly” experience. I know it’s a buffet, but people didn’t even have to wear masks when being next to the food, nor did they have sanitizer for people to sanitize their hands before touching utensils. The food was mediocre also. All in all we weren’t impressed. Our waitress was amazing though. We do like their normal services though for dinner. We’re always pleased with the food during those hours. Go for lunch or dinner, not brunch.

Went for a birthday and it took a long time to get food. Main reason we went was to get dessert that they ended up being out of. Also had to track down wait staff to get silverware, ice, etc.
