We recently moved nearby and had a great meal here shortly after moving in. Our return trip was disappointing though. We had a 5:45 reservation, arrived 5 minutes early and were told they would seat us shortly. We weren’t seated until 6:10 and only after a number of other couples who arrived after us were seated. Finally, after everyone was seated, the hostess said “it’s just the two of you, right. You can be seated now”. Clearly, she had messed something up. The table was freezing, cold air blowing down on us, so that we sat with our coats on. The waitress arrived, poured water, and said she’d be right back, which was a few minutes later. She took drink orders, came back 5 minutes later and asked if we wanted to order while we waited for drinks. Waited a while longer for drinks. The beer was good. The wine was an ungenerous pour for the price. The meals were delivered by someone else. My wife’s said her salmon was very good. My meal was not hot and not good. I ordered another beer which was not delivered until after we finished the meal. We paid and left the beer. And on top of a disappointing night there was a COVID surcharge. We went from making this our go to place to not sure we’d go back again

Absolutely amazing all around. Our waitress what knowledgeable and sweet, and the owner came over to check on us a few times too. The ambiance was gorgeous and everyone loved their food. If you are looking for somewhere to eat in KOP, go here. You won’t regret it.

Hostess was friendly and welcoming. Server seemed a little stretched yet very friendly. Both seafood dishes were well presented and delicious.
Very nice overall experience.

We dined on a Sunday night. It was for a family birthday. We had a reservation. At first, we were seated in a separate overflow space that required us to go back outside once we checked in with the hostess. She tried to sell us on this newly renovated area that clearly was not part of the original restaurant. It had a funny smell, was cold and did not have any of the same ambiance of the regular restaurant. If we were just grabbing a quick bite on the run, it would have been okay, but one look at the birthday girl’s face told us that this was not where we wanted to be this night. After inquiring if we could possibly change tables to the regular restaurant, the hostess was very sweet and accommodating and moved us to the regular part of the restaurant. Once re-seated, the server gave us the rundown on the menu, however they were out of many of the standard apps, as well as some of the mixers and liquors for drinks. We were even told after ordering a bottle of wine, that they did not have any more of that and we’d have to choose something else. Our app order of kettlecorn also took around 30 minutes to come out for some reason.
After kind of a rough start, all of the food was excellent and the Death by Chocolate dessert was loved by our kids. Our server was wonderful and accommodating. We really appreciated the extra care she gave to make sure everything was great. Atmosphere of the regular restaurant is awesome! Bathrooms are beautiful and clean. Covid precautions are being fully taken here.

I loved my first visit! Will definitely return. My only concern is the buffet. There needs to be more servers. But maybe that was because of social distancing as well.

We love introducing new friends to Founding Farmers. We had drinks and desserts. All were fabulous with the exception of my drink,The Clemintine. I couldn't enjoy it because my glass was covered in sticky sugar water. My fault for not asking for a clean glass
Kudos the the donut desserts

Waited an hour to be seated and that was with a reservation. Our table had a pole right in the middle of it. We were celebrating a special birthday so it was an awkward arrangement. Food was ok. Burgers really greasy. My pasta was just ok. Server was great but our order came out wrong and then had to wait 15 minutes for a correct meal to come.

I had made a reservation for Sunday instead of Saturday like I thought - there were 2 hostesses downstairs at the front - they were not super friendly and my daughter commented when we left - wow that one girl was rude. They did accommodate us for Saturday and we came back at 3. The host on the 2nd floor was very nice. Our waitress was really nice but messed up the order and brought my daughter's cheeseburger out with sauce. No big deal - understandable since it was a change to the menu. The manager came over and apologized - also nice - but the burgers came out when the rest of us were done eating. It would have been nice if the burger was comped...;also they were completely undercooked but at that point did not seem worth complaining about.

Thank you, Colleen for sharing your review with us. I am so sorry a member of our team failed to warmly accommodate you & your daughter, we messed up an order & failed to comp it, and the replacement meal was undercooked. :( This all said, I'd love to connect and turn around your disappointment. Please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review + date/location dined to continue this conversation. -Amy

Service was excellent. The appetizer (chips+dips) was excellent, the roasted veggie and avocado sandwich was good. The butternut squash was sitting in the butter in a bowl and my sister couldnt move them out of the butter so they soaked it up, it was too much butter for us, maybe ok for the average diner though. Overall good and i can see why people like it but we likely won't return

I am so sorry to read your disappointment with the Butternut Squash Ravioli will be the reason for you & your sister to likely not return- especially after our service was deemed excellent and other items ordered were enjoyed. :( This said, I would love the chance to connect and turn around your dissatisfaction with this dish, and hopefully entice you back for another try!

Oh, I wanted to like Founding Farmers so much more than I did! The atmosphere/vibe is fun but I felt, overall, the food was simply...lacking. My husband had ok fish and chips, but my pasta was bland and for over $20, it was absolutely not worth the price. My daughter enjoyed her ravioli, so that's good. Additionally, our server was very rushed, even though the restaurant was hardly full, and it felt like we were inconveniencing her just by asking questions, which we did have because it was our first time there. So, nothing was terrible, food was ok (overpriced, in my opinion). I may be open to going again but overall, it was just a big ole' bowl of ok.
