Located in the lively, new 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.

We were shown to a small table near the bar area and, at my request, were given a larger table across the aisle. The hostess and host, on request, found a third and final landing spot that was perfect for conversation and had elbow room.
Our server was wonderful and so helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful.
This was my first visit but I will be Going back next week with friends!
Two suggestions: scented candles in the ladies room were tough in both allergies and a potential migraine.
Have a separate fryer for shellfish for those with food allergies. I hear the fried chicken is great but can’t experience it due to a fryer also used for shrimp☹️
All in all it was a very nice place to dine!

Atmosphere, service was great. I do want to add that our server (and I am not sure of his name!!) was the best. He kept our coffee cups/water glasses full and was consistently checking in. Then when I wanted grits but you all did not have (waiting on cheese, I think), he made sure that I got an order to go as soon as they were ready. Great Service Excellence. I have heard good things about your lunch/dinner so will probably come back and give them a try.

It took us 20 minutes to get our first drink. We had bread and apps before the first drink came. The food selections is ok. My daughters meal came with no chicken in it. So we told the waitress and brought a plate of chopped up chicken. The waitress was hard to find. Nothing outstanding on the menu.

Our server was AMAZING. So knowledgeable and helpful. Quick to serve and quick to ask if everything is good.
The wings for our appetizer were BOMB. My steak was a little dry but that’s because I ordered a dry piece of steak cut.. (I think).
What impressed me the most is actually the company. They spend thousands every month to keep the restaurant SPOTLESS clean. Servers on knowledgeable. Company built on good values. They have the Amish make some of there serving jars. Everything comes from a farm. Very fresh food. THEY DONT HAVE ANY MICROWAVES IN THE WHOLE RESTAURANT. If your food gets cold, they can’t warm it up- they can offer to make you a new dish. They make the drinks all themselves - nothing processed.
They definitely have my business for next time. Very impressed.

My first experience here was very good, this time not so much. First off, they were out of a bunch of stuff. They were out of my first dinner choice and my dessert choice. In a rush I picked the strip and enchiladas dinner. I work for a steak house... this steak looked like no NY Strip I’ve ever seen. It had fat running throughout the steak... that’s not how a strip is made up. It was also like maybe 6 ounces... 1/2 thick. Just a junk cut of meat. I ordered it medium, it came out hammered well done. I would have sent it back, but the server didn’t ever check back after the runner dropped the food. Steak had no seasoning, dry. Brown avocados from an ice cream scoop on the plate. What a disappointment! The “street corn” was literally corn cut off the cob and way over cooked as well.

We like it here, it’s not pretentious and some of the food is really fun or fabulous. But it’s cramped and the servers are spread too thin. Some of the food is great, but it’s hit or miss if you try something new. The prices seem reasonable for the area, but the bar drinks are so high. This was our first dinner experience. We loved previous weekday breakfast and weekend brunch. We discovered the Liberty dessert this time which will undoubtably be the reason we come back next time.

The entrees we ordered were good, but when we ordered a glass of house wine they were out, and when we ordered cheesecake for dessert they were out of that also. This was around 7:00 Friday night. I have eaten at Founding Farmers in DC and found it a much better experience overall. King of Prussia didn’t seem to have it together.

Chicken on my salad was mostly fried stuff and not actual chicken. Maybe take the extra time to make sure you have an appropriate serving size.
Wings were awesome!
Husbands patty melt was average.
Server was great! I think her name was Rihanna. She was very attentive.
Mike, the bartender was awesome. He made us some great drinks on his recommendation. And we also got the wings on his Rec and they were great!! Hot and delicious!

The food is always good. That being said, we waited 40 minutes for our reservation. The hostess seated a party of four with a reservation after us- before us. When I checked in 20 minutes after we should have been seated the hostess was a bit short (she was clearly overwhelmed because a lot of people were waiting).
I think that for a wait that long someone should have come to the table to apologize/ comp some portion of the meal.
The food is always great, but having to wait that long (and on a Thursday) kind of soured the experience.

Terrible experience. Had a 6:15 reservation for my husbands 50th birthday (kids choice). Didn’t get seated until almost 6:45 which made it impossible for the rest of the evening plans. I had to leave a 8:10. Rest of family had to order dessert to go. Not quite the happy birthday celebration we had hoped for. Having a reservation means the table should be waiting for us. We should not have to wait almost 30 minutes for a reserved table. I will know better next time.

We had reservations for Sunday at 1:15pm. When we arrived, we were told that there was the brunch buffet ONLY. The buffet was 29.99 per person. We had been looking at the menu earlier, and were excited to try some menu items. We didn't stay to eat. It was very disappointing.

We tried to salvage our day by going to the bakery. The service and food there was excellent.

I wish there would have been a notice on our reservation that noted Brunch Buffet Only through 2pm on Sunday. We would have made different plans.

I rarely do these reviews but we had a 1:00 reservation and weren't seated until a little after 1:30.
It was a brunch so the waitress had little to do for each table. There were a few things you didn't get at the buffet and I ordered an egg florentine which I never received. All of the drink orders were messed up and I thought several of the dishes were a bit too greasy. I had heard it was wonderful there and we were treating my husbands siblings and their spouses. Very disappointed.

We were not informed that at 1 o’clock it is still only the the brunch buffet so when we checked in we were told. We weren’t thrilled but wanted to stay because we’ve heard such good things but I just don’t think that the buffet was worth $30 a person. I’m not sure what all the hype is about.

Great restaurant! Been here twice and will keep coming back. My wife and I eat out so often and many times we leave a restaurant and say, "Meh, probably won't go back, nothing special" but that's NOT the case here. We were here early Sunday morning (12-2-18) and were pleasantly surprised by their brunch offering. (I thought we were going for breakfast but all they had was the brunch) Glad it turned out this way because we got to taste a lot of foods that we wouldn't have otherwise. Lots of great lunch choices and lots of breakfast options as well. Some of the stuff we especially like were the fried chicken, sweet potato perogies (WOW!!!! We had 4 each!) salmon, French toast and the Sunday salad. BONUS..... they had servers walking around to each table offering an additional 4 food options; ahi tuna ceviche, sweet bacon pops, fried shrimp and deviled eggs. BTW, our server, ANNA was amazing! She was attentive, informative and very pleasant.

I am never one to complain- seriously, ever. But this was one of the worst experiences I’ve had in a very long time. Seating: We were seated early, which was a plus, because they were very busy, and the host team was very pleasant. Service: Absolutely terrible service. We were lucky if our server said two words at any point. It took at least 15 minutes for a first greet, and even more between each visit. Table maintenance was minimal so empties were piled up throughout the entire meal. Entrees were delivered split up- the last two of our six were about 15 minutes later, and were delivered cool- so basically everyone ate a cold meal. Food: Aside from being cold, the food was good, except one of the entrees had a hair in it. Also, I asked about a certain beer, which was kicked. No recommendations- just a blank stare when I asked about recommendations. The Ugly: While eating, one of our guests felt something on her shoe, and found that gum had gotten stuck to her boots. We used our phones to shine under the table, and as soon as we did, a bug ran across and into a crevice. There were quite a few pieces of gum stuck under the table and around the booth. At this point, we just wanted to leave, but had to wait for a return visit from our server, and to have the check processed, which took... just... far too long.

All in all, just the worst experience. I’m never ever one to complain, but this is too much. Having been a server for many years, I know how hard this job can be, but also have some minimum expectations. This was my second visit here- the first being for brunch which was ok. Same level of service, but without the major hiccups. I would not recommend, and will not return.

This was our 4th time at Founding Farmers - so they got us back 4 times. This visit it was TOO busy. That makes it hard for waitresses to check in with you and for the bar and kitchen to keep up with orders in a timely way. Salads came with Romaine lettuce - which we specifically said we did not want (per the recall). Waitress assured us management said it was OK and would talk with us. We just did not want Romaine. Having to order an alternative salad ans wait for it put the rest of our order on hold - as a result some things came out hot and other "not so much". I like the ambiance, the menu and the location but they are just getting too popular & too busy to offer good service and consistent food.
