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.

The turkey in the turkey was good, but a bit dry. The gravy was cold. The server was very attentive and the food came out quickly

Well, there was no hostess to check either of us in even though we arrived ten minutes apart. That was a bit off to start. I’ve never had too much of an issue with food at Founding Farmers–sometimes the menu is a bit confusing, but I’ve never hated what I ordered–today though the first server we had spilled my soup on my sandwich without saying anything when she brought over our plates. She was clearly disinterested in her job and would only come over to us when her boss walked by. Our second server, because of a shift change, couldn’t leave us alone for more than a minute. He started telling us all about dessert even after saying we were good without it. Then finally oddly enough a new employee brought our check to us. Nothing that ruined the experience, but enough that has my friend and I looking at each other confused after every interaction with a member of the staff.

Great experience all around. Really cool vibe from the place, neat decorations, and really cool story behind the silverware. Ask your server to tell you about it, its pretty cool. Food was pretty good, only complaint was that the donuts I had for desert were a little dry and dense.

We are repeat customers. But this particular experience was sub par due to the fact that we waited from 7:10 to 7:50 for our table. Management was very apologetic and accommodating which helped. I had the distinct feeling that we were put on a walk in list and our reservations as not recognized. Thanks

Everything about this place was impressive--giant menu, huge space, great service. It's a little pricey, but you can see they've invested a lot into the place and the experience they give customers. The food was delicious! I will definitely go back and am looking forward to trying more off their menu.

Finally got in because it is so popular, so you can take this average review as atypical. The best thing was the chocolate pie dessert. Everything else was average and there was some rudeness at the end.
We had:
Rock Fish or the day. Fortunately I had it mueniere so the butter helped with an otherwise overcooked fish.
Squash ravioli with shaved brussel sprouts that had too much oil, probably to rejuvenate it.
Chicken fried pork chop that the server said was her favorite. It was greasy and boring.

The server was nice

The concept of the restaurant is good, but the execution is average.

At the end, we had overstayed our welcome and some guy in a maroon jacket came over and started cleaning the table like he was prepping for the next guest. He could have just asked us to visit the bar section and mention that they had people with reservations waiting. Instead he was just a speechless drone intimidating us to leave. So we left and won't be back.

Good food and nice menu. I HATE the paper straws - give me a break! They just collapse in the water. We are not saving anything or the planet with paper straws. Great choices for all palates and diet needs - just wish it wasn't so loud - its hard to hear conversation and tables are really close together. For some reason I could hear the entire conversation next to me, but not the person across from me.

I chose this restaurant due to it being listed as friendly to gluten-free diners. Instead, my server told me I could choose one menu option. It was one of the most expensive and she would not give me further choices. Very disappointing.

Arriving for our 6:45 reservation on time led to a forty minute wait before finding a table and then another 15 minute wait for a waitress. An ok dinner with too long of a wait.

Third time here. Unfortunately the experience did not live up to our previous visits. Party of six including a nine year old and a thirteen year old. Great menu for kids. The good is the atmosphere and management's accessibility during the dining experience. They are always around and checking in. The bad was the service and the meal. While the service was friendly, there is no way it should take 20 minutes to have a loaf of bread (paid for, by the way) delivered to the table. We ordered two chicken sandwiches (the kids), a spicy fried chicken, a steak and frites, a spicy chicken salad , two appetizers and drinks. All the chicken was significantly overcooked. That was not true on our previous visits. The mac and cheese came out cold, but was replaced quickly. We had to ask for ketchup 4 times and wait 5 minutes after the food came out when we made sure the waitress knew we needed it with the order. The steak frites was outstanding and well priced. We spent over $200 on the meal and left disappointed and with questions about whether we will return. Management was apologetic and responsive, but the fact they were busy at 5:30 PM on a Sunday evening is not a valid excuse for the dining experience provided. If we return it will probably be on a weekday.

The food was good, nothing spectacular. It was very busy and loud. Service was very slow. It took us 25-30 minutes to get drinks after being seated, even longer to get our food order, and at least 30 min to get donuts even though they were pre-made.

Overall a fine experience. The ambience is great. We didn’t realize on Sunday you can only do the buffet brunch (at $30 per person) until 2pm, so it was more expensive than intended. Didn’t find the food to be worth $30 myself but maybe it is for people who want to try a lot of meat. Buffet was okay, fun but not amazing food. It was fun to go with friends. Also took a while to get seated despite reservation.

We were at Founding Farmers for the first time and for a birthday. It was a fun experience. The waiters and other attendants could not have been nicer. We were seated in a very comfortable booth and we enjoyed hearing from our waiter about the restaurant’s composting program. I had asked about the straws that came with the drinks. They are made of hay and compostable. The entrees were good but my favorite thing was the bread basket we ordered-a selection of the various breads carried at the bakery downstairs - served with butter and jam on the side. We will be back again, I’m sure.

Went for restaurant week. Would not allow us to do lunch special that was on their menu. Only offered us dinner deal at 2pm which was small app, entree, and dessert for $40. Not even a deal! Waiter hardly checked on us, asked for water several times and asked different people. Mushroom pasta sounded amazing but was very bland. Will not be back.

At first our experience did not start well, we made reservations for lunch for restaurant week, however FF only offers a brunch buffet Saturday and Sundays. The exclude buffet was not very clear that it was the only option and we were out of luck to have lunch. We brought our frustration to the Manager and he understood the confusion. He them offered to help make up the difference in cost between the lunch we where planning to attend and the cost of the buffet. Once we were seated, we had a fantastic experience, the food and atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and very attentive. We would highly recommend FF, and if you are looking for a great Saturday or Sunday brunch it is a must. Thanks to Alexander Gost the manager for making our experience top notch. We appreciate it. Looking forward to our next meal at FF. PS the ice cream and doughnuts are amazing.

Great food!!! Went for the weekend brunch, there were not any servers passing out hors d'oeuvres, but our waitress brought us some, so we were able to partake in them. There is not egg option other than a Benedict and some scrambled eggs they have out on the buffet, which were not fun options for my party. The other location I have been to has a larger food variety, making for a better experience, BUT overall the food was still really amazing.

Place is really cool, atmosphere is great, but food has been consistently bad. Either over salted or under salted, dry chicken or undercooked crunchy pasta, cold food, etc. The doughnuts and coffee are really good though.

The waitress was excellent in the beginning but after awhile my daughter and I felt like we were being rushed and when we ask the waitress if she could take our picture ( just to capture the first tine being there and having our monthly mother/ daughter dinner date) she repeated jokingly ( I guess) “take your picture” well let’s just say it left a bad taste in our mouth. Unfortunately it take one little negative experience to dismiss all the positive.
