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

Typical meat and three or maybe two. Food was good. Service was very good. I had a coupon so it was cheap. I would go back but not a OMG I need to go back.

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.

I had lunch here with a friend and the food was good. I had fried chicken and my friend had chicken livers. We were both pleased with our meal and the service was good. We were not told before we ordered that they have a lunch buffet but we looked at it and it had the same things we ordered.... More

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

This is an old house with 4-5 rooms to have a group. We love the breakfast, prices are better than most and just lovely atmosphere.

The atmosphere is nice. It is a really nice old house. The service is slow as molasses. But the ladies are nice. The food was on par with the dollar menu at Wendy's at seven times the price. I was expecting a bit more from this place but I was disappointed. We left feeling like we wasted $45 on about... More
