Located in the lively, King of Prussia Town Center, Founding Farmers KOP is a full-service restaurant and bar open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and our Farmers Market Buffet Brunch on weekends. As a farmer-owned restaurant, almost all of our delicious food and drink – from our freshly baked bread and house-churned butter to our craft cocktails with our proprietary spirits – is made from scratch, using high-quality ingredients from American family farms. Our First Bake Cafe & Creamery located just downstairs will be serving light fare, coffees and scratch sodas, fresh baked breads, donuts and pastries, and our famous homemade ice cream, all available to go or for enjoyment at our counter or one of our cafe tables. We are excited to be making our way to Pennsylvania and hope our guests will enjoy all that is Founding Farmers.

As always, service completely knocked it out of the park. I wish I had gotten our server’s name (receipt says C Mallon) but he was an absolute delight and we hope to see him again.

It was an awesome experience. The food was excellent, so much to choose from and totally worth it. Everyone in our party was over satisfied. Overall A+ rating from us!! Thank you.

We came here at the end of a day of celebrating my oldest son’s 12th birthday. We came here last year around this time and the service was nowhere near as stellar as it was this time around. Our waiter was great! He was genuinely friendly, he was conversational, and in turn we couldn’t wait to give him a good tip, he deserved it! The last time we came the waiter was a little on the cold side and seemed like he wasn’t too interested in our happiness, but he wasn’t mean or nasty or anything, just a cold undertone. So, since we had so much of a better experience this time, we will be sure to come back more and more and won’t wait another year. I saw something about a buffet brunch, so I’ll be bringing anybody that will come to that!

We had an 8:00 reservation and did not get seated until 8:45. We ordered our food and when it came 2 of the dishes were cold and my husband was served a dish he did not order because they had run out of the item he had ordered.

We loved this restaurant! We spent some time at the bar before being seated. The bartender was efficient and friendly. The hostesses and our waitress were helpful and friendly. We had the pretzel appetizer and have already said we will come back just for that. The dips were so good and the pretzels were fresh and warm. We each had a burger and fries. Delicious. We didn't finish them, but took some of it home for the next day. Of course we had to share dessert. We had the devils food donut with ice cream. Again, delicious. Would come back and get that as well!

All of the food was very good and we loved who everything they do is homemade from scratch. Our entrees took a very long time to come out though, while we saw other tables get seated after us and get their food sooner. If one of our items was taking too long it would have been nice to just get a heads up. But that is a very minor issue for us, the food here was well worth the wait.

My family and I went here for my mom’s birthday and we had a wonderful time! I have been here several times and always have wonderful service, delicious food, and tasty drinks. I recommend making a reservation ahead of time.

Superb experience! When we got to the restaurant we were notified that service was buffet only- it would have been great to have known beforehand, but everything was really lovely.

Our server Janelle was amazing. There was 8 in our party and she was informative and attentive to every one of us. While the cocktails were delicious they were pricey. The food was average. I had the chips and dips for my appetizer, the guac was below average, the pimento cheese was average and the salsa did not have much taste. I had the filet and shrimp. The filet was very good, tender and cooked to order, medium. The sauce that accompanied the steak was lacking taste, it think it was supposed to be bearnaise sauce. The loaded baked potato wasn't very loaded. The veggies were seasonal and good. Our meals were not delivered at the same time and weren't very hot. Wouldn't be my first choice for dinner in that area but I would try lunch or brunch there.

This is my 2nd visit to Founding Farmers. I made a reservation with Open table so we had a table by the window overlooking the Town Center. My friend and I decided to try several things so we got the mini cheeseburgers and the perogies and we split them. I don't buy burgers at a restaurant yet these are really delicious. The perogies were very good as well. We also tried their homemade soda which was good but a bit pricy. The atmosphere is upbeat and upscale. The waitress was very good and gave great service. I enjoyed our dinner and would come back again.

Food is great. Did not appreciate the 15 min wait when we had a reservation. Place was cold, but we did get them to briefly turn up the heat. Service overall was good

While FF has a terrific array of choices on their menu, just about everything we;ve had there is mediocre at best. This time I had the Fisherman's stew, described as a rustic cioppino-like feast, but what arrived was a cast iron (for show) pot with a handful of mussels, a few over-cooked shrimp, a filet of perch (i think) that was now bite-sized niblets sunk into an oily, bland reddish sauce. I had to ask for the brad (the rustic part) which i used to fish out the perch bits so I could eat them. The kitchen mistakenly sent a dining partner real pasta instead of spaghetti squash, and the last time we were served real meatloaf instead of their Incredible meatloaf (which happens to be pretty good!) and the 30-year vegetarian has probably never recovered. I will never return!

The idea of local healthy ingredients was appealing to us. The decor is cool and bar is great looking. The vodka options are not good. The drinks are tiny!! The wait for drinks was long. The server was sweet but not particularly knowledgeable. My short rib pasta had little meat and lots of mushrooms. It was tasty but nothing special. My friend enjoyed her beer batter chicken. Not rushing back.

Our waiter was very attentive but also let us have our privacy. Food was fabulous! We had the mussels in a garlic wine sauce, the trout, and the kale salad. Very good-sized portions and the price was reasonable. We had a booth in another room that was very quiet. This is our third time at this restaurant and will definitely go back again.

Service was great
food was good but not exceptional
wine selection was average to good
Appetizers and desserts were the highlight of the evening
The special was a Maui Maui over risotto that was probably left in the oven a little too long
Overall a very good meal

The food was good and priced appropriately for the area. We did have two unimpressive aspects during our dinner on Monday. One was the wild swings in temperature in the restaurant. We were seated in a booth near the windows and it would be overbearingly one minute and then freezing code. It seemed many around us were layering and un-layering during their stay. The other was our very disinterested server. Drinks were refilled and dishes cleared but there was no personality or engagement with the table. If I'm going to spend $100 per person again, I don't think I'd go back.

Didn't care for where we were seated. Seemed as though they just wanted to fill the little side room where we seated. Ordered mussels in white sauce and got red (tasted fine but really wanted white). Ordered a drink for my wife and they brought me a beer...little things but easily fixed.

Our waiter forgot about us so many times.
It was my birthday. We told them that on the RSVP. It was never brought up to us at all.
I still like Founding Farmers. I have been there over 30 times. I feel the service is going down hill.
