Great food and quirky location

Excellent choice for a meal in Fredericksburg. The food was very good -- my wife had pork chops with apple bread pudding, and my buttermilk fried chicken was some of the best I've ever had. Do not be put off by the slightly unusual serving process -- the staff is very friendly and helpful, and... read more

Cold Tuesday for lunch. Big crowd, mostly young ladies. We ordered and waited for a private table versus group table. Food came immediately as we sat down. Drinks were in mason jars and jelly glasses. I didn't mind, my wife did--prefers wine in a proper glass--very limited wine choices by the glass. I had Full Nelson beer and it was... More

A favorite spot to grab breakfast/brunch. I need to try the rest of the menu soon! Recently we had the veggie scramble and the buttermilk chicken biscuit, but you really can't go wrong no matter what you order. Everything is fresh and local and tastes great. They also make great mimosas! It is a little different atmosphere - its tiny... More

Checking in we ordered and were given a beeper. It went off in 35 minutes. Returned to be seated at our table. Because we ordered previously, we felt the food would be ready in a few minutes. Not the case. They do not start cooking until you are seated. That was disappointing. We split a burger. I have to say... More

The reviews about this restaurant were great so I decided to try it. Wow I was disappointed. Small restaurant and you stand in line to order. I had a steak sandwich was nothing special. Unfortunately the place is overpriced for nothing special.

It is not what it seems! You go in and order find a seat, and then YUMMIE food comes to you. The kitchen is upstairs and confusing but well worth the weirdness. Community tables if you like, we did sometimes others not. Different, current, fresh, farm to table, downtown cool, local, Chef have competed on Food Network! GO-

I have been to Foode several times, but unfortunately have had to find another place nearly as often. It is wildly popular among the students from the University of Mary Washington and only has a limited number of seats inside. During the spring, summer and early fall, there are additional tables outside and that does help somewhat. There menu is... More

Foode is one of the best places in Fredericksburg to eat.They use fresh, natural ingredients and come up with interesting dishes. Seating is always an issue though. Small inside, but an adorable courtyard you can eat in if the weather permits. Highly recommend!

The food is great.... and if you don't mind on taking a chance on finding a seat.... then go! However, if you are in a hurry and you go at a meal time....great chance you will be waiting outside on a table...

Absolutely fantastic food, service and atmosphere. They could stand to be a little larger. Locals know to get there 5 minutes earlier than th hour to snag a seat with no wait. Especially before noon. But it's worth the wait if you need to. And trust the servers. The daily special is special. Every day.
