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.

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

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.

This is my second time coming for the buffet and I've still overwhelmed by this unbelievable buffet for the price!! I brought my sister in law and niece with me this time and they were astonished!! everything was excellent from the time we checked in and by the time we left. One of the main things other than the food!! that stuck out to me was not once were we told or felt that we were rushed!! that is a gem and greatly appreciated! many of these buffet places tend to want to rush you in/out to get more folks in which is not good at all! thanks so much for everything! HINT: can you open one in Cherry Hill, NJ which is so much closer to where i live:)) again: thanks, great place, i def will be back with more folks and have been telling everyone about Founding Farmers!!

Went for Sunday buffet. The food was sparse. Was there at 10:30, yet most of the food was for lunch/dinner. Eggs & meats were empty twice when we went to get them. Third time at restaurant, each time have an issue. Figured give one more try, but very disappointed. Won’t be going back again

I absolutely love FF. It was a gathering of friends to help celebrate our 7yr wedding anniversary. The first timers loved it and us regulars got the fantastic food and service that brings us from over 20 miles away to enjoy.If I hit the Powerball,I would build one closer to our home so I could be a regular like Norm from Cheers.

Twice they couldn't cook a burger well done! It was also a little thin.
The steak was tasty and cooked perfectly, but it was very thin. I guess that's why the price was much less than a traditional steakhouse.

Hi JeremyB: Thank you for your review and I am so so sorry the food was only deemed "OK" & our service was considered very intrusive and almost rude. :( This is such a bummer to learn, and I would love the chance to follow up further to hopefully gather some more intel and also turn this around.

Made a reservation, but waited for our table. Seated at a two-top which was extremely close to the neighboring tables...so we learned far too much about those around us!
Asked for an IPA, was told "we have tons" but no list (huh?). Appetizers were amazing (FGT and bacon wrapped, blue cheese stuffed dates). I had a Farro Bowl which was great, but the fiance had the prime rib (meat and potato were cool, at best). Desserts were amazing.
Despite the minor setbacks, we had a great meal and I actually recommended FF to a friend. I was appalled to learn that they ended up being "tested" by one of your servers when they mentioned some concerns about the taste of her wine. The server actually brought a blind sample of the off-tasting wine and another brand over and asked her to taste them both to see if she could identify the bad one again - what the he!!, FF? - Not great customer service, and embarrassed for having sent her to you!

Quick seating-appetisers were good hence the 2 stars. Our steaks arrived like warm to cold. Medium rare was well done and a T-bone steak was almost paper thin-veggies not good. Who serves a loaded baked potato with no butter? Alerted Lizzy our server to the issues-she must have been new as nothing was replaced except the paper then t-bone. Lizzy had an assistant and our food orders were mixed -just disappointing!! No manager came to find out how our meal was going after we complained-just a truly disappointing evening. I would recommend another restaurant in the area-pass on this place.

This is a great place to bring friends together over drinks, great food selections, and superior desserts. When I want a simple meal, nothing beats the tomato soup and grill cheese. Love the chips and dips as an appetizer, and shrimp and crab risotto for a meal. I love the fresh ice cream for dessert.

I went on a Sunday night. Much better than the chaos associated with their brunch. Had a reservation and still had to wait, but not very long. Friendly, helpful and professional staff. Good food with something for everyone. I tried to find calorie information, without any luck. Maybe it's better not knowing. While the food was fairly priced, the cheapest glass of wine was $15. That seemed expensive for a mid-line type of restaurant.

Founding Farmers has become my go-to lunch spot, whether with my husband, a friend, or my family. I appreciate the diverse menu. The food is excellent quality and really tastefully prepared. We decided to go last Saturday for lunch before a movie and learned that they have a buffet lunch on the weekends. I guess I'd always been there in the week! What a buffet! It allowed us to taste so many of the amazing things on their menu. It was so so good. I highly recommend it.
