Our visit to MoCo Founding Farmers was excellent! They seated us early because it didn't take us as long to arrive from Towson. Our server, Chris, was great! Friendly and made good food recommendations. All of our food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Highly recommend!

Food was very fresh tasting, like it was right off the stove. I don’t think I ever experienced that at an American restaurant.

Great food and cocktail, as usual. Our server was excellent; attentive without being intrusive. Only disappointment: not only no decaf espresso, not even decaf coffee!

Food was absolutely delicious and this was a great setting for an anniversary dinner. Only negative was that we were seated for almost 15 minutes before our server came to greet us and take our drink orders. We ordered drink and food at the same time and everything then came out quickly, and the server was very attentive after that. I appreciate them offering a good option for indoor dining with proper COVD precautions.

We ate in the dining room. The tables were well spaced. All the staff wore masks. The service was excellent. The menu was somewhat more limited than before Covid-19, but there was still a good selection, including vegetarian items. The food was wonderful. I had one of my favorite entrees, the Raviioli with cherries and a wonderful sauce. The flavors were excellent. The ravioli was perfectly cooked.

We had outside reservations but it was too hot so we sat inside. Glad we did because a storm came through. Our waiter (Zach) was excellent. He made great menu recommendations and made sure we were satisfied with our meals. The artichoke dip and FF’s special bread was awesome. I had the pankocrusted halibut and my wife had the salmon, both were very good. For desert I had their coffee ice cream which was excellent.

This was a real disappointment. First, the restaurant was very warm. While there was air conditioning, it seemed limited to the stairs, so we sat and sweated throughout our meal. Our server was efficient and pleasant, but the food was mediocre at best. The asparagus were wimpy yellow-green, and the chicken was so overcooked that it was dry and unpleasant. If the AC was operating, we probably would have fixed the food, but at that point, we just wanted to leave.

I have been to Founding Farmers MoCo several times, always loved the food however this time it was just ok.
Our service was good, even though it took 3 attempts to make our side salad correctly. We sat indoors, AC was on but it felt very warm because they left the front door open. It's still a nice causal place to have brunch.

Came for Sunday brunch. I have been to this location several times, both for brunch and dinner. I have never been disappointed. The food is always high quality. The service is excellent. Parking is easy to get to and free for two hours. Also appreciate the extra care they have taken since reopening during covid

FF is a great place with wonderful food and outstanding waitstaff. Their weak spot is scheduling their tables. Almost without exception (like Super-Bowl Sunday 🤣),
waiting a half an hour past your reservation time is routine. Everything else about the dining experience at Founding Farmers is first-rate. But this needs to be fixed
