The only decent item is the fried chicken, the rest was awful. Very pretty home snd pleasant staff, but that's it. Hope someone buys this place and makes it a good place to go.

Good southern food. Quaint atmosphere. Good service. Love the sweet potato chips...yum!!! They should bag these and sell them. Chicken Salad is very delicious. Best thing...Buttermilk pie. To die for.

The great thing about the Foster House besides the food is the historic value of the restaurant. It is so nice to have breakfast in a historic home with so many antiques in view. Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1030 has it's Romeo Breakfast (Really Old Men Eating Out) every Friday Morning and we really enjoy the good service and... More

Had lunch with a friend here, she had the chicken salad and I had the grilled chicken salad. It was okay, nothing special. Service was not good, disappointing to my friend as she used to love this place. I was unimpressed with the food although the building is cute. Would not choose to go there again, too many other choices

We so wanted to love this place. This was our second week day visit to the Foster House. The food is decent for the price is what brought us back but sadly the restaurant is dated and the service is absolutely horrible! We assumed that maybe they were having an off day after the first trip but we should have... More

Arrived to a half empty restaurant at 11:50 am on a weekday. Ordered a chicken salad and a cup of coffee. I waited 45 minutes for the salad. And had to ask twice for a refill of my coffee. The salad was tiny. And half the plate was filled with burnt potato chips. I'm never going back.

First visit to Foster House & Amanda was great. Not only did she cook our breakfast but provided photos and conversation regarding the history & restoration of the house. You will be surprised at the price & quality of meals. Breakfast was a tasty treat. Brunch sounds delicious. Recommend groups consider this quiet, historic site for study, meetings & meals.

The Foster House is an old house located right off the square in downtown Cumming. The staff is very nice and the atmosphere reminds me of a Sunday dinner. We went for lunch and had the daily special. We had the chicken fried steak and it was very good. The vegetables were also good. I looked into the buffet and... More
