We went to Founding Farmers 7 years ago in DC and had a wonderful time and food was great. We just had a really bad meal at this Founding Farmers in King of Prussia. I had the sea food pasta and the sea food was cooked to death. The cod was so over cooked it wasn’t eatable, the shrimp were like eating rubber. The only good thing about the dish was the pasta. My wife had the fish of the day and it to was over cooked and dried out.

Very unlikely the we will return.

The decor and environment are wonderful! However, the food is totally over priced compared to the portion you get! Also the service could use an upgrade! The waitress had zero personality and two of the orders were completely wrong and then never came back out! So 2 people in our party of 12 literally didn’t eat dinner! I had really high hopes, but was overall disappointed!

I’ll start at the beginning. The smell in the restaurant is incredible. We were seated near the bakery and it smells amazing. We were seated promptly which was great as we had a reservation for 12 people. The meal took a total of 3 ½ hours! We had almost no drinks other than the bottle of Samuel Smith’s Cider that I had. The waitress was responsive and very sweet. She messed up my wife’s order and completely omitted mine. When she asked what I had ordered I explained very clearly what it was (spicy fried chicken). She brought me regular fried chicken but by that time we had been there for over 2 hours so I just asked for some tabasco. For dessert most of us ordered ice cream. That took over ½ hour to come out. It was excellent.
Overall the food was very good but I can’t recommend a place with service that bad.

Disappointed with bartender - took over 10 minutes to get a drink cleaned up other patrons glasses that had left, no urgency.
Two of us arrived at 5:45 pm and our Reservations were for 6pm. 2 members of our party were 5 minutes late - we checked in and it took an additional 10 minutes to seat us. Disappointed as there were many open tables set for service. Delay after delay, iced coffee came after meal served. Disappointed as many friends said it was worth the wait.

very underwhelmed with the food. shrimp and grits- grits were an odd texture, as if the corn hadn't been ground. short ribs- maybe 3 ounces of meet for $25? ridiculous. seafood risotto- looks like a half of stick of butter had been melted and poured over the top. lack of flavor in each of these dishes. over $200 dollars for 1 app, 5 entrees, and two beers? way, way overpriced, especially for the quality of food that was delivered.

Service was poor, many fewer food choices than in previous visits to other Founding Farmers. Food was not replaced on buffet. Poor set up for buffet, too crowded.

My wife and I have been to the restaurant over a dozen times. Our favorite time to go is definitely the brunch. The brunch has always been incredible and offered a lot of different choices and there is always enough food available. However this past Sunday my wife and I visited for brunch and it wasnt a great experience. Most of the food took 20-30 mins to get filled when empty and some items were not even available including the tuna bites, french toast(my favorite), vanilla and bananas foster toppings, and chicken dishes. We did finally track down some french toast that had to be made. I also had to wait over 30 mins before any brisket was available at the carving station. I ordered a drink and that even took 30 mins to get to me and by the time it did i was finished eating and ready to leave. I hope that this was just an off day and we can visit again soon.

Sunday Brunch-Food was excellent. Layout of brunch buffet area needs rethought; becomes very jammed up in certain spots and access to food stations can be difficult. Would definitely return for lunch or dinner, but not the Sunday Brunch.

Nice menu with a wide variety of selections. The food was very good/outstanding. Service was good. 2 criticisms…. I was fairly uncomfortable due to the room temperature varying from cool to freezing. Delivery of our dessert was very slow. Other than that all was very good. I would go back because of the food, but I’ll take a sweatshirt next time.

We've been here before and thought the food was excellent - food was good except for the Chicken pot pie - if you like soup than order it but if you expect this to be a traditional pot pie but better don't order it! Noise level was really high this time! Server could have been more attentive.

I had the fish special. The fish was dry and had no taste. The sides were okay. My husband had the shore-style crab feast. It was basically fried chicken, crab cake and 2 gross sides on a plate. Definitely not worth $29.00. The crab cake was very mustardy tasting. The glasses of wine were 13.00. Umm sorry thats a little expensive They dont have a kids menu so had to order my 2 yr old a full pricedmeal. I will not be back.

overall it was fun to be there - great environment, but the acoustics in the main area, closer to the kitchen area, was loud. Not sure about consistency. Our pizza was burned on the edges. Ravioli portion was small and spicy fried chicken wasn't spicy at all. Fish and chips were terrific, beer was great and waiter was knowledgeable and friendly.

Heard a lot about it. Really cool space with great attention to detail, although tables quite close in some spaces. Food was delicious but pricey for what it was. Very hipster. Server was well informed. Seems to be a see and be seen type of place. Bar was quite busy at happy hour Thursday evening.

Sache, the main hostess for breakfast and lunc,h routinely welcomes me by name. And Michael, our favorite server, anticipates better than just about anyone around best foods for me or my guests. The people here make the difference. Food is very good, fresh, and consistent. For those of you dining with vegans or vegan yourself, you can find your way through the menu with some selections too.

Food hit or miss. Some dishes excellent; others almost inedible.
Server was excellent however kitchen timing was way off...45 min wait between appetizers and entree's.

Menu was extensive and food was awesome. Our waiter, however, was not engaged at all, didn’t give us his name, disappeared on numerous occasions and we had to go to the bar ourselves to ask for limes for our cocktails. I’ll certainly give it another shot since the food and atmosphere were great.

Sunday Brunch buffet was a rip-off. I have been for breakfast/brunch from a menu and for dinner and have loved it every time; this was garbage. Very limited selections, food was ok only, minimal “breakfast” type options. Very crowded, coffee was terrible, and it was outrageously expensive - $30/person!
I will be back for other meals, since they have a good menu and I like their other food, but I was incredibly disappointed.
I highly recommend avoiding their Sunday brunch buffet!

New gem in KOP. Lots of delicious and varied brunch buffet choices and EVERYTHING is made from scratch in their kitchen from bread and bakery to delicious desserts. Still manages to feel cozy somehow - not like a huge cafeteria buffet set up at all. Definitely coming back soon!

This was our first time there and we really enjoyed the food and service. Our waiter was patient, explained everything to us, and even gave his recommendations when asked. The portions were generous enough to feel full. Prices, we thought, were reasonable for what we got. The only real difficulty was finding parking. With so many restaurants opening there and all the people walking around, I would recommend going early to find a parking spot. Also make a reservation for the restaurant.

This was our third time at the KoP Founding Farmers, and our third time with bad service and food problems. The first time service was slow and entrees came out at different times, one almost 20 minutes later than the others.  When it came time to dessert, they were out of almost every type of donut.  But it was their first week so oh well. The second time we tried the brunch. The butlered items sounded delicious, but the servers ignored our area. Only after we and others asked about the food did a few servers person come- nowhere near as many as the other tables got though.  The final time was today. We placed a drink order, then 5 minutes later ordered corn bread, then 5 minutes later our main orders. 10 minutes after that the drinks finally came. 5 minutes later, we were told that the corn bread would not be ready for 40 minutes so we switched to a different appetizer.  10 minutes later we were told that one of the main course items ordered (meatloaf) was also out and would take 40 minutes. There is no reason that at 5pm they would be out of two menu items, and no reason they’d each take 45 minutes to make.
 We told our server to just cancel everything and that we would go elsewhere for dinner. We also witnessed the table behind us send back both their main courses, and later found out that one had cold roast beef and the other was served the wrong food. 
The manager was apologetic and gave us enticements to return, but at least one in our party will NEVER go back.

Do I now understand why Laban gave it zero bells.  I would give it a zero as well if I could.  If you want to enjoy Founding Farmers, go to Bethesda or DC but avoid the King of Prussia outpost. The service is awful.

We had heard good reviews so decided to go. My husband got the pork ribs described on the menu as “fall of the bone”....he could barely cut them with a knife!!! Plus hardly any meat. Our food took close to 20 minutes to get to the table....not sure why because the fried green tomatoes and both orders of fries were cold. I got the smoked salmon on bread....not as fresh as I would have liked and bread was stale. Very disappointing. At least the bananas foster doughnuts from the cafe downstairs were good. Not sure this deserves a second chance.

Very disappointed with the food, I was expecting excellent food but my prime rib was ordered medium rare and it wa basically cold. Instead of taking just the meat so I could eat the sides my plate was taken. Second order was fine.

My husband had a white string in with his mashed potatoes so did the table next to us theirs was parr of herbs but still should not be on the plate.

To make up for it we got donuts. Really?

Took my college aged niece for lunch at noon on Saturday.

Hostess needs to speak up and speak clearly- doesn’t speak up, mumbles, and it’s very loud at hostess desk.

Made us wait: even with a 12 reservation - she had me wait 10 minutes.

Buffet was picked over, messy, and things like salmon were old, dried up and messy.

French toast - hard, stale and not replenished.

$65 for 2 for brunch that looked like it was the end of the day!

It’s a shame such a pretty place, but they don’t care about customers!

Just not impressed at all. The only thing impressive was the decor and layout. Food was mediocre at best on 08/04/18 at or around 1030hrs. Had the brunch. French toast (pretty good), artichoke dip, salmon, and chicken & rice were the only things I enjoyed. The chef cooking the fried chicken needs some remedial instruction. It was very dry. Iced tea was unsweetened. Not sure whether this is a Pennsylvania thing or not, but restaurants in the South do not serve unsweetened iced tea. A customer should not have to ask for simple syrup to sweeten it. If it is a northern thing, they need to change that. Server (bald-headed guy with glasses) came to clear the table of buffet plates, and put our silverware on the table. Who wants to put silverware back in their mouth after that? These were my experiences, and maybe yours will prove different. Not giving them another chance. Forgiveness is not a trait I possess when I feel as though I wasted my money (it’s not Monopoly money). They need a quality control process that focuses on improving mistakes. Strive for perfection.
