Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went with the family for Sunday brunch. The price is a good deal for a buffet brunch and the choices are enough to please diners with different preferences. I liked that they have complimentary beverages in addition to the food; I quite enjoyed their drip coffee. The servers could be more attentive in taking plates/ refilling water but it was no trouble at all and they were very pleasant. Would come again to try their other menu during the week.

5 of us ate dinner here and had a really pleasant meal. Two people had the poke salads, which were very fresh (and a favorite of both two from prior visits), one person had chili, one had scallops and I had tacos on the puffy corn tortillas. Putting it out there: I totally chose poorly. I live in California near a community with tons of amazing fresh Mexican food. I don't know what came over me, and why I felt compelled to order them at this restaurant. First of all, there was very little flavor in the meat (went with beer-braised beef), and it had too much cheese that overwhelmed what flavor there was. It would have been better sans cheese. And while the concept of the puffy tortilla is fabulous, it's not so great in practice. It makes the dish far too filling, and also overwhelms the meat from a textural perspective. Everyone else was very happy with their dishes, and we also had the cheddar scones for the table, which were delicious. Service was good (not great -- server ignored the three 21 year old women at the table when it came to drink orders, which I can understand, but you're better off erring on the side of asking).

I am real sorry, Emily to read the tacos ordered missed the mark, and service while good, still skipped a beat. :/ We do appreciate the kind notes shared in your review, and hope that you (and your guests!) will give us another try sometime soon! Please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm- kindly include a copy of this review, prior to your return. I would love to have a hand in ensuring your next meal and our service are both back on the right track! -Amy

I have been twice to this weekend buffet. The variety of brunch items had me torn with making decisions since my stomach can only hold so much. The tacos were fresh and wonderful! The honey fried chicken was juicy and fresh. I made room for the fresh mini donuts, kettle corn and brûlée grapefruit to finish my meal. This is worth the money and helps to make reservations. Enjoy!

This updated review is just for the Sunday brunch. We have enjoyed the brunch at FFB several times in the past couple of years, and hoped to do so again. However, the experience was definitely less than stellar, and we won't be returning. The buffet no longer offers grilled vegetables, and has fewer options for those who do not eat meat. What was labelled brussel sprout salad was a repeat of the garden salad. The presentation was less appealing than in the past. Hash browns were undercooked and not crispy. Our server forgot to ask if we were interested in the shrimp and pizza which was being offered - the shrimp were very heavily breadcrumbed, and so tough that they were inedible, while the pizza was cold, undercooked and tasteless. After the initial query as to what we would like to drink, to which we responded, "Not right now", we were not offered beverages.

Hi anikod: Thank you for your review and I am so sorry this brunch visit fell short. :( I am equally let down for the disappointments in the buffet selection and the lacking preparation of some of our items. With this said, I'd love the chance to follow up and hopefully turn around the poor taste we left you with.

Abysmal service at an off peak time at 2 pm for lunch. SLOW is the understatement of the year. It’s as if our table of 4 was invisible. Took 20 min for someone to come to our table to offer water and acknowledge us in the restaurant. After reading other reviews online (which I wish I had done before coming,) this seems to be the recurring theme—extremely slow service which results in a complimentary appetizer being awarded. Might as well just post appetizers for free on the menu if management is not going to increase wait staff to properly accommodate the number of clientele. Would not recommend.

Served food with no silverware or napkin. It took 10 minutes to get any attention from server. Server stop by table three including taking taking order for drink, then meal and had to ask for silverware. Food has no flavor and full over potatoes in pasta dish and barely any seafood. Very disappointed.

What a horribly disappointing experience. The service, I’m sorry to say. The food was fine. When our meals arrived, one of the meals was wrong and our waitress admitted it was her fault. She offered to bring biscuits for him to eat while waiting for his meal. They never came, but she did bring a salad that he didn’t really want. The missing meal FINALLY came as the rest of us finished ours. How sad that the meal we ordered took an additional 30 minutes to be brought to out. Our server thought it would be nice to offer us a $1 donut as a “free” dessert to compensate us for her mistake., and seemed quite put out that we didn’t jump at her “generous “ offer. No discount on or bill, no visit from the manager to apologize for the long wait or the wrong meal being brought to us. Never mind the ridiculous amount of time it took to get the correct meal. Such a HUGE disappointment. During these COVID times a little more respect for the diners who come out to support local restaurants would have been appreciated.

We went for Sunday brunch with about a gzillion other people. It's a good price but waiting in line was cumbersome and the staff couldn't keep up with empty stations. We were able to eat on the patio, which was great. However, to get back in you have to use a revolving door that the staff uses as well. The food was 'okay' for a buffet but be sure to order the fried shrimp separately (it comes with the cost of the brunch). Delish!

We had reservation for 11:00AM (on Friday). This place was very busy. Our waitress was very pleasant, made recommendations for dishes. We ordered the crab dip appetizer which came out fairly quickly and was good (not great) but good. Then we waited 45 minutes for our entrees to arrive. We watched people who sat down 20-30 minutes AFTER we did who were getting served their entrees (and who ordered the same things we did). We felt completely forgotten. Our main entrees finally did arrive exactly 1 hour after we sat down. The salmon was not cooked all the way through as I requested and I wasn't able to finish it . The sweet potato was completely burned on the top so I had to scrape the top layer off. Overall disappointed. The waitress was apolgetic and I know it wasn't her fault, but something happened that made this a regretful and expensive experience.

The food was good and the atmosphere was comfortable, but loud. Unfortunately, our waiter misheard one of our orders and brought the wrong meal. The person then had to wait for the meal they had originally ordered while everyone else wait. By the time it came out, everyone was done. I give them credit for taking that meal off of our bill, but for the inconvenience and damper it put on our whole visit, it would have been nice if they had done more. The food was good, but nothing incredible. We enjoyed the popcorn for our appetizer. Prices are pretty high.

I was really looking forward to this date night as it was our 1 year anniversary dinner which also falls on NYE. We wanted to have a “splurge” dinner and go all out for it and wanted the night to be special. We had a reservation that was made about a week in advance and upon arrival had to wait 30+ minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Once we were finally seated we were coldly treated by our server who seemed annoyed to even be there. She rushed us through every moment of the dining experience and seemed to have no concept or desire to show any signs of hospitality and making the experience more enjoyable. Before we were even done dining she dropped the check at our table without even asking if we wanted anything else (we had planned on getting another round of drinks). I will say although the service and hospitality aspect was beyond lacking, the food and drink selection is great, which is what lead us to pick this restaurant for our anniversary meal in the first place. The food was also delivered very quickly which was great and we enjoyed most all of the food and drink items that we ordered, especially the garlic knots and chocolate cake! With that being said, It is not the caliber of service or hospitality I would expect when paying $150-$200 for a nice meal out. I would not recommend coming to this location to dine if that is their standard of service for their servers.

Haven't been back here for a few years but remembered this place as now I'm always on the lookout for restaurants with good outdoor dining space. FFB certainly has one of the nicer ones. It's on the Georgetown waterfront, although not located on the boardwalk so no river views, but further back with view of the big fountain. There are two levels of the fair sized outdoor section, one raised with cover, and one below on fountain level without cover.. As outdoor spaces go this is a very pleasant place to hang out. On a weekday around 2 the place is still pretty busy. Tables here are well distanced and they have menus fully encased in sturdy clear plastic for easy cleaning or you can scan a QR code on the table with your phone for even less contact. We had shrimp and chips, and fish tacos, both pretty good, although the tacos were a bit too sweet than savory. I also tried the watermelon mint soda - it sounded more interesting but rather disappointing as it was more soda than watermelon or mint - for one thing the color was so pale you'd never guess it's got watermelon juice in it, let alone tasting it, and way too much ice as well. Overall, however, it's a good place for a lunch break and you can't go wrong with the quality outdoor dining environment.

Making everything by scratch is hard, but the ingredients have to be good also. We got a bowl of mussels that were really tiny, in an ok sausage sauce. The bread was really good but not worth the eighteen dollars. Catfish jambalaya was excellent as was the homemade ice cream.

I am from the UK and had read about the Impossible Burger but never tried one. I went there with my wife because I was keen to try this meat free alternative to the burger. There was no seating available (although there were some empty tables) so we sat at the bar. The bartender was busy but friendly and professional. She had an impressive knowledge of both the drinks but also the food. We ordered an Italian salad to share to start. I don’t believe any Italian would use dried parmesan but we both believe that is what we were served. To be fair that is our only complaint. The burger was excellent as were my wife’s scallops. It was a busy place with a good atmosphere.

We made a reservation for 1:00 PM. When we got there, we learned that you can't actually order from the lunch menu until 2:00 PM! Otherwise, they offer a $29.99 buffet brunch. Why didn't they tell us this in advance? Because we didn't actually see a server until 1:39 PM, we waited until 2:00 PM to order from the lunch menu. Drinks and food were good. There's also a pandemic surcharge. It was rather chilly when we went and we were seated outside in a tent. The heaters didn't work or were turned off most of the time and a wind came through the tent. Not very pleasant eating experience.
