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.

Service was terrible. We waited 15 minutes for our server to finally come over and take our drink order. Then we ordered appetizers and our drinks still hadn’t come out. I had to ask another server for our drinks because our server wasn’t around. I asked for my lunch without dairy. They made it with dairy so bad to remake it which took another 20 minutes. Not worth the price tag. There are better places.

this was my second visit this week. there were negative commonalities in both visits but the first at least the food was spot on. Just three days after my first visit, I was ecstatic to go back. My coworker and I took another gal out for her birthday lunch. As health conscious types we perused the menu and I suggested the Quinoa bowl. I had had it Tuesday and was going to order again, with Salmon.

After two of us ordered the Quinoa, my friend was approached by the manager saying they had run out. I find it odd since this is fresh ingredient farm to table place. I was not approached so when I was delivered the Farro bowl, which has a COMPLETELY different taste and texture, I told them they brought me the wrong item. The manager said, no thats it. and I looked at her and said there's no brussels sprouts and she looked at the broccolini and said those were the BS leaves. She even brought the menu and pointed to the Quinoa. The waitress was not apologetic but did ask if I wanted something else but time was not on my side. I removed the salmon, which was good although salted unevenly and left the farro salad aside.

I'm really not one that causes any scene but they charge quite a bit per serving with a lot of up charges like $4.25 for herbal tea and $7.50 for a bread basket..

But if anyone had been nice about it.. I did get a $15 card to use at a future time but I believe they should have comped my meal.

Additionally we ordered our entrees with our drinks.. one would then believe that we are not ordering off an appetizer menu so the when the waitress said would you like some bread while you wait, we said sure. She never mentioned it was $7.50. Not about the price, but it's deceptive.

What I experienced in both visits is slow and impersonal service, a wait of a few minutes despite reservations, way too small bathrooms to accommodate the size restaurant and it's downright loud.

We are gluten free & they have no gluten free bread or many options. They were out of quinoa & buckwheat. My husband is allergic to peas. We asked the waitress for salad without peas. Salad came full of peas. She never checked on us or apologized. Horrible meal.

Out waitress was very helpful and accommodating. Very pleasant and professional. Most of all great food. My friend that had a hamburger did wish there was a better selection of condiment , ie. more lettuce/ tomatoes and a better side salad , hers was kinda wimpy. Your fries are great berry tasty and flavorful. Keep up the great work. Meals well enjoyed by all.

The pricing for the main courses was reasonable. The appetizers, drinks and desserts were overpriced. For example, 6 round tortilla chips and dips were $13.50. Cheesecake, $7.50 a slice and additional $2.00 to caramel the top lime creme brûlée. Not worth the price. Can think of many other places to get better food for less money.

I had the cedar planked salmon which was good but under-cooked. The mashed potatoes had an odd flavor to them that I couldn't even identify. Our waiter was impersonal. The restaurant was loud and it was hard to have a conversation among our party of 3. Isn't this why people go out with there friends/colleagues? to talk? The meals were overpriced, no bread was served complimentary and it wasn't very special. I'll probably try it again some day but there are plenty of other dining options.

Our dinner was fine here. The menu is quite vast, but that always concerns me as there is no way one restaurant can specialize in that many items.

Three members of our group ordered a 12 ounce steak. Two were very thin cut, had a lot of fat on them and were definitely nowhere near 12 ounces, while the third was a true 12 ounce steak.

The service was quite slow, as it took 2.5 hours for a group of 7 when we were all ordering quite rapidly.

The restaurant has a super cool vibe to it and has great cocktails (whiskey sour was my fav) but the food almost felt like we were at a Cracker Barrel. I was hoping for something a little more upscale based on the reviews I had read.

All in all, a decent experience, but I won't race to go back!

Their new and still have a lot of kinks to work out. Tons of things on the menu were out. Took forever to get drinks and they couldn’t cook a steak to save their life. The manager did make up for it by saying he would take the steak off our bill and he brought desserts over. But i’ve been to the dc one and it was so good this one was just disappointing. I hope they shape up.

A lot of effort was made to make the restaurant look a certain way mimicking an authentic farm to table restaurant. The menu is gigantic, not farm to table style. Pick only a few items and do them VERY well. The noise level was not conducive for table conversation. The staff was there for the paycheck. Deviled eggs were almost frozen and had little flavor. The Mac and cheese looked delicious however the macaroni was under cooked by several minutes. An order of cornbread never made it to the table. The lamb chops were tough.

I have been to Founding Farmers before, but the last time I went, we had horrible service. We had to ask 3 separate waiters for drink refills, and when our original one finally brought them, it was wrong. Then she argued with us trying to tell us that she did pour the right beverage, rather than actually just giving us the drink we asked for! My good was not hot when served either.

Out waitress was very nice but the team approach got to be confusing as our food was delivered and followup needs. The place was extremely busy so it may have been a staffing issue. They were out of numerical dishes and apparently ran out of the soup of the day - apparently after Inhad ordered....so they didn’t tell me - just delivered the other soup and didn’t say a word. When Out waitress returned I indicated the wrong soup had been delivered- I overheard her checking with someone and she was told “just tell her we ran out”. 3 oot of the 4 people enjoyed their meal. The dessert is awesome!

We have gone to brunch often enough to say that we didn’t like the current changes. It was very disappointing. I don’t think we will be coming back. I understand change needs to happen but what has been done in our opinion is not what was needed. Our server Daryl went about and beyond to make us happy. Please feel free to contact me if you like. I will gladly speak about our disappointment.

One of the worst dining experiences in a long time. While the waiter was friendly and attentive, the kitchen couldn’t get their act together. Nothing come out right or in time with my wife’s meal. They were out of multiple items on the menu, even the coffee machine was down when it was time for dessert. Doesn’t compare at all with their DC location. Too many other dining choices to go back to this place.

This is our second time visiting this summer with similar experiences , the service is absolutely terrible. Our orders were wrong, long wait time for drinks and food, and the service staff is rude and unapologetic. We attempted it second time because we loved the DC location but will not be returning after this last visit in KOP.
