Founding Fathers had great food and the table service was very good. The server was helpful when we asked for her input. One thing that I was disappointed with is that while we sat at the bar for a table and ordered a drink - the bartender upsized my drink without asking. I wound up paying 19 instead of 13. I am not sure it was a true upsize as there was so much ice in the glass. I did not make a big deal as I was with a business client - but my advice is to watch the bar bill and push back if you get upsized with out your knowledge.

Everyone thought the food was fantastic--I loved the shrimp and grits and apple pie. Server was great too. Hostess at front door needed an attitude adjustment.

Brunch ends at 2:00pm on Sunday but they do not advertise that, the waiters were uninformative and not knowledgeable. It seemed very chaotic and on top of these things our food came out cold. One positive the chicken was good, we refused to send the food back as it took forever initially to even receive it.

I expected better for a farm to table experience. Limited to know choice for gluten free. Similarly no dairy substitutions or listing of food contents on menu. Crowded, slow service, food was so-so. Not the special experience we hoped for.

If you're there for brunch, get the beignets!! They are like eating a cloud. A deep fried cloud, but a cloud!! They are amazing. The rest of the meal was equally wonderful. You cannot go wrong with this place for brunch. Tip ... make a reservation so you don't have to wait quite so long.

First visit and the food was fantastic. Our Server was Joy. She was the best part! Great sense of humor, very timely with information, knew what she was speaking about, etc. She is the reason for the GREAT review.

Saturday evening is very busy so don’t expect to be able to walking in unless you are prepared to wait for over an hour. When you do get seated you get good food all round. I would like a larger beer menu but certainly would recommend this restaurant.

The food was all over-salted to the maximum. I do not even think about salt nor I am I some sort of food critic. I have never posted a single review talking about salt, but everything from the chicken with waffles to the branzino to the fried green tomatoes were so salty that they were nearly in edible. Everyone in our party of four commented on the amount of salt that was used, and actually it left us all feeling like we had a salt hangover the next morning.

Had reservations for 6 people and the hostess wouldn’t seat us unless all 6 were available. One of our guests were running late because of a last minute family emergency and the hostess still insisted We have all 6 or we seat 5 and “get delayed in seating” when she arrived. We had to ask a stranger to pose as our 6th person so we can be seated. When we got to our seats it was a booth that held 6 people. Thinking back to why she couldn’t just seat us with just 5 people in a booth that seats 6 in the first place is beyond me. I originally have 4 stars is because Bianca, our server, was excellent. She made up for the terrible initial experience. If you go, and manage to get past the hosts, I would ask for Bianca. She is amazing.

Terrible service. Didn’t even have silverware to eat with and had to grab ourselves. Saw our server every 20 minutes. Took 2 hours to eat a meal that should have taken 45 minutes. Food was horrible. Tasted like they poured entire salt shaker into my dish.

Despite being only half full, we were rushed through our meal. $47.00 for one adult and one child for breakfast. I’ll go somewhere less pretentious. Ham and eggs were good. French Toast was crispy and not what I was looking for.

Very disappointed. I took guests from Atlanta who chose this restaurant from a list of at least 10 of my recommendations for dinner. We ordered the shrimp and grits, the chicken pot pie, and the meatless meatloaf. As for the supposed generous portion sizes, this was not the case with my meatloaf. To give you an idea of how small the slice of meatloaf was, if you take a slice of Wonder white sandwich bread, cut it in half and discard one of the halves, that was the portion I got. Of course it was about 2-3 inches thick, but it was no bigger than that on the plate. It wasn't seasoned and the taste was pretty bland. It was supposed to come with green beans--I got hericot verte, and not that much. The scoop of mashed potatoes tasted of pure butter. This was the $23 plate. The shrimp and grits came with instant, white grits. Really? Not even yellow grits? Instant? The chicken pot pie was simply a soup bowl topped with a cut out of puff pastry baked last minute. Really? Can't use pie crust on the bottom and on top? All this including 2 iced teas and a water for $86.

Very loud. Rotating door at entrance is problematic for getting in and out. Portions were good. Slightly high price for entrees. The bacon blue cheese dates were very good. Price of drinks drives the final bill up pretty quick.

First time at the restaurant - Food is very average. I ordered the plant based (impossible) burger and it was extremely salty. White wine was served barely chilled. I won’t be back.

Visited FF twice back in June and was back in town for a conference and my first dinner stop was FF again! The Moscow Mule was absolutely delicious, as were the deviled eggs. We repeated a lot of the dishes we had last time--chicken pot pie and Yankee pot roast...everyone left satisfied and happy. Thank you for an outstanding night!

Restaurant was packed, but host staff managed reservations and seating guests efficiently and personably. Our server was fantastic. I asked if it was too late to change my order after placed, concerned it might be too rich. I emphasized I did not want to inconvenience anything, and she ensured me not to late. Our pasta and salmon were delicious. Have gone before when traveling to DC, and will go back again when in town.
