I was down at the waterfront this past Sunday and noticed Farmers and Fishers. About 8 of my friends and I decided to drop in after looking at their menu. Once we got in we figured out that they were only serving brunch. We were unsure at first until the hostess invited us to take a look. We then quickly made up our minds that this was the place to eat!
Farmers and Fishers story
Welcome to the new Farmers & Fishers – an evolution of the “Farmers” brand – where we continue the delicious farmer-approved fresh flavors established by our sister restaurant, Founding Farmers! We offer a great, casual approach to enjoyable, easy to eat, and flavorful foods and drink inspired by the best of American regional cooking, from coast to coast.
Owned by Founding Farmers and the North Dakota Farmers’ Union, Farmers & Fishers brings the same casual farmhouse and farmer-inspired attitude and dedication to the use and promotion of sustainable agriculture to the waterfront. The menu features original, meticulously crafted delicious dishes inspired by culinary regions of the U.S., from the New England coast to the great Southwest, Napa Valley to the mid-West. The dining experience here is relaxed and delicious, and a great value. Families, groups, and parties are always welcome to our unique spaces, in the front dining room or in any of our special private dining spaces. Wherever you are, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and well taken care of!
The atmosphere of Farmers and Fishers is beautiful it is open and airy which gives it a beach like feel. The decor of Farmers and Fishers is quite nice it really give you a clean and homey feel which is nice for a restaurant. All of the waitresses and hostess are wearing plaid shirts which makes me think about farmers.
So on to the food! The Brunch Layout was amazing let me say that one more time amazing! It was the most comprehensive brunch buffet I have ever seen. There were so many options to choose from. We got there around noon so I focused on both lunch and breakfast items. My first round I went right for the chips, salsa, and hummus which were all excellent. I also got the pasta and fish. The pasta had mussels and cheese with a light tomato sauce that was out of this world. This fish was a lemon butter tilapia that was light and fluffy. The other dish that stood out was the cheese grits which tasted just like my grandma used to make them. I was really impressed with the quality of food at the brunch buffet. Usually whenever their is a buffet I expect a lower quality meal. Below I have included the brunch menu from their website.
- Classic eggs Benedict three ways
- Raisin bread French Toast with Bananas Foster sauce
- Cheese grits and hash browns
- Fresh garden and spinach salads, fruit salad with granola and yogurt
- Appetizer / starters of fresh guacamole and hummus with grilled Navajo bread

And, for dessert, housemade mini Cream Pies, Carrot Cake and Devil’s Food cake or our famous Cinnamon Rolls. Served each Sunday from 10am – 4pm. Large parties and families welcome!
$24.99 per person excludes additional menu items, drinks from the bar, taxes and gratuity. Children up to six eat at no charge; children seven – 12 are $12.99.
The service was good although it was a buffet so it is hard to get an accurate reading. I will be returning to Farmers and Fishers and the near future! If you are looking for an amazing brunch spot I just found it for you!
