Founding Farmers - King of Prussia
Whatever chef was on this particular day did a great job. All of the food was amazing!!! And our waitress was tentative and sweet
Our server was not the greatest we've had. Food was good as always, but service can make or break a place for me. And this one broke it.
Booths are best. The food and service are wonderful.. don’t miss their BRUNCH.
It was our first night out as new parents with our baby boy and it was also my sisters birthday. Our food arrived late and was cold. We didn’t have time to wait again for more food because we are all on a time clock with our babies. It was a terrible experience for what was supposed to be a special occasion for everyone. It’s unfortunate, but I would not recommend coming back for our family.
OMG!!! This place is absolutely amazing!!! Now in my top 3 restaurants!!!!
My husband and I have been to Founding Farmers several times. We love it there. Our favorite is the impossible burger. It is a great option for those who want to go meatless. One of the best veggie burgers I've ever had!
YUM! Thank you for sharing and we look forward to have you & your husband back soon! :) -Amy
Food variety and the quality was delicious. Giving a lower ranking due to the fact it was EXTREMELY crowded and busy.. and also parking at this location is a nightmare.
Bummer...our team is super let down that the rating for your enjoyable experience was compromised based on how busy the restaurant was when you dined, and for the limited parking in the plaza. :( That said, we hope to have you back and would be more than happy to suggest times that aren't as busy to hopefully boost your rating next time! :) Please call us at (484) 808-4008 for reservation help. -Amy
This brunch used to be amazing. Today there was about 2/3 of the usual selection and they pared down the passed items. Eggs Benedict was cold, even straight from the kitchen, salad was soggy and the iced tea was meh. Our waiter was awesome though and it’s a great space.
The wait times even after a reservation are obnoxiously unpredictable. The servers are cordial, but they don’t show up much during your time here. We paid for a dessert once and it took so long that we had to leave without having it!
Waited 35 minutes to get seated even with our reservation. Food was OK not sure it was worth the wait.
Bummer. I am super sorry to read that there was a delay with your reservation and the food served was only considered "OK". :( I understand your disappointment this time, and our team hopes to have the oppurtunity to host you again. This said, I will send you a PM to connect further. -Amy
We checked in with the hostess 15 minutes prior to our reservation and were told our table was being cleaned off and we would be called to be seated shortly. 50 minutes later, I asked why we were still waiting and was told that there were numerous tables that had paid their bill and staff was just waiting for them to leave so they could be cleaned off and we would be seated. It took another 15 minutes before we were taken to a table. Once at the table, we were promptly greeted by our waiter, that was the only time we felt as if our business was appreciated. The food was very good and the serving sizes plentiful however, the staff and management did not seem to think there was any need to please the patrons in terms of service or accomodation. If the restaurant is at capacity, you should inform those waiting that this is the case and let them decide to wait or go somewhere else. I believe that common courtesy and honesty would go much further to gain repeat business than the appearance of greed and being mislead. If we had been told our wait wait was going to be 45 minutes, we would have been much more receptive to that than being lied to.
Even with a reservation there will still be wait times. Overall excellent experience!
The food, waitress and manager were very nice. The bartenders definitely know what they're doing! However, we sat down an hour and a half late.
The check-in process and lobby area is a real challenge. Too many people in too small a space.
Absolutely terrible night . I booked a table for 6 to celebrate my birthday two weeks in advance of the date . We were initially shown to a bar table set for 5 and truly only sat five ... the noise level was crazy we could not hear the waitress or see the menu as it was so dark . We asked to be moved and were initially told no by the waitress. When my husband asked to speak to the manager we were moved to a table the same size as the previous one in the bar area also still way too cramped for five . The appetizers took forever to come out but once they did almost all of our food did .. entrees included which made it very tricky given the space issue !!! extremely disappointed on a night meant for celebrating . We will never go back .
Service was slow but they were very busy. Food was good but not worth the price.
A few bullet points here....
1. They charge you for the bread that usually comes free in other restaurants. We paid $5 for the bread and it looked fantastic but ultimately was just very plain white bread, nothing about it justified the cost of it considering other restaurants give you free bread that is in many cases much better. Yeah, so they bake it in house, great. I didn't have a problem with the free bread I usually get in other places though. This didn't justify a cost.
2. My wife's food was way over-salted. She didn't even finish her dish because of how salty it was.
3. The entree portions were horrible. I got the herb-roasted grilled chicken with broccolini and string beans. There had to be literally 6 string beans there. A decent amount of broccolini but I had one piece that I simply couldn't chew, i had to spit it out. The chicken (which was perfectly cooked, seasoned, and tasted fantastic) was barely there, it looked like a few chunks of chicken cubes on top of my greens. Like something I'd overpay for at a frou-frou restaurant. We were hungry not long after dinner, which was a downer. That dish cost us $16...for THAT.
4. The mac and cheese, which is allegedly made "in-house" and based on recipes from a founding father, looked like death warmed over and tasted bland actually. I guess mac and cheese sucked in colonial times? Go to Panera Bread and get better mac and cheese.
5. The staff was friendly and helpful (aside from not really asking us how the meal was).
6. The decor and ambiance is really awesome, I loved the farm-y look of everything. However, in terms of the food, this place is all dressed up with nowhere to go.
Really wanted to like this place. Especially since we broke tradition and went here instead of going to Seasons 52. BIG MISTAKE. This is not in the same universe as Seasons in terms of....ANYTHING. Except at Founding Farmers, you pay a lot of money and get poor food.
Extensive buffet and passed foods as well as made to order foods all included in the all you can eat buffet price. A little steep, but worth it due to the variety and quality. Definitely would go again. Loved that it had a little bit of everything and great ice cream and donuts for dessert!
We came in for a very late supper after singing in a concert, and had one of those "Murphy's Law" nights: after wrestling themselves over two options for a considerable amount of time, one guest opted for chili -saying they hadn't had good beef chili in decades. Order in...time passes...waiter comes back, very apologetic, saying the chef didn't feel right about the smell of the chili, 86ed it, please choose something else. Which is exactly how I want someone making my food to behave! Ok -next choice, obviously delaying some of our food. Three other dinners are delivered, this time the perogies were served fried, when she ordered boiled. We opted to keep them as we were all too hungry to wait, but the manager graciously took them off the check. Also, the music was a little loud for my husband's liking, and when asked if there were a quieter section, the hostess said, sadly not, but she'd be happy to lower the music a bit. Gotta say, this almost never happens and it made for a much happier meal. So while things went off the rails, everything was handled promptly and cheerfully and is simply one more reason why I adore this restaurant.
Well said, SloaneRanger! We are grateful for wonderful guests such as yourself and appreciate your kind patience with any of our shortcomings from this visit. Thank you for sharing your review and we look forward to your return! :) -Amy
Party of 5 seated promptly. Waiter would disappear for long periods during our meal. Four entrees were horrendous unless you enjoy your food criminally oversalted. Only good outcome is I know never to dine here again. Oh, forgot to mention the ridiculous markup on their wines. For a moment I thought I was at the Capital Grille. Wishful thinking.
HowardM, our team is tremendously sorry for the 2-Star experience you had with us this past Friday evening. Having inattentive service, overly-salted food and wine that failed to give you bang for your buck, all adds up to a disappointing time and I feel badly this was your take away. That said, I would appreciate the chance to follow up by email and will send you a PM. -Amy
Most wonderful experience. 100/100. Would take my grandma here
Our server was not attentive. She didn’t know what a Canadian Club and ginger ale was and took a long time to come back and tell us that all they had was Crown Royal. Our food arrived before this drink! That should give you an idea how long it took. The server was not apologetic and when my mother tasted the drink it was made with some homemade beverage that was fruity rather than ginger ale since that wasn’t available either. The food was expensive! $30 for crab and shrimp risotto. I was expecting a wow taste and was quite disappointed. It was rather bland. Couldn’t taste the lemon herb sauce. We spoke to a manager on the way out and he apologized. He offered us his cell number so that we could call him the next time we come and he’d “Take care” of us. We said never mind. :|
Thank you, Lisa for sharing your feedback with us. I am really sorry for the pitfalls in service, the back & forth with your drink request and the bland taste-factor with your meal AND understand being disappointed with this experience. Please know, our team is let down that we were unable to make this right in the moment & appreciate that you informed us before leaving. That said, even though you declined our invitation to return in the moment, please know our offer will always stand. -Amy
Very crowded standing at the top of a large stairwell and set of steps. The flooring is tile. It had rained that night making it slippery. Menu was fair. The server was great. But, can't remember his name.
Good food, sometimes could use more seasoning, but it's a matter of taste. Very good service
The experience was pleasant, but the food was just OK. I will go back to try the Brunch, I keep hearing great things about the Brunch.... try it you Might Like It
Absolutely perfect! Great service, great restaurant, and great food!! Wish there was one in Pittsburgh.
The service was slow. How long should it take for an iced tea. My chicken salad sandwich was barely edible. I have had too really bad meals there. The only thing that is good for s the cedar plank salmon and some desserts. I have tried it several times hoping it would get better but it hasn’t. Will not be going back
We made reservations (for three) for lunch and had to wait 30 minutes while others with no reservation were seated right away. This was my first time here and I usually get a little miffed when something like this happens, however, once seated and food arrived, wow!... the quality and taste of the food was outstanding. So, although my first impression was tarnished by the start of my visit, I was a very happy diner by the time I left. I will definitely return when I am in the area.
Great waiter! Food was fabulous!
As usual, Founding Farmers did not disappoint! Creative and delicious drinks, followed by outstanding food. Had the scallops for the first time, and will definitely order them again!
The food is phenomenal and the service is outstanding!! Christian was our waiter and he gave us his personal recommendations as well all of the donut choices!! Too many to choose from.
Hooray! We are delighted to read your 5-STAR review and hope to have you back soon! -Amy
The food was delicious. We sat at a booth off of the bar area, and was very happy with the noise level. The staff was very attentive and did a great job.
Thank you, BetsyM for sharing your review with us! We very much appreciate it and hope to have you back soon! Please call us at (484) 808-4008 for any reservation help needed. -Amy
Fantastic meal! Great food and good value. Would love to live closer so we could come back
Founding Farmers has great food and customer service.
The food was dry. All 4 of us had the same experience with our various dishes. I ordered chicken enchiladas and the tortilla was so hard (dried out from sitting under a heat lamp maybe) that I couldn’t cut it w my knife. Had to pick it up to eat it, and there was maybe a tablespoon of chicken filling in the enchiladas. The only good part was the pretty restaurant itself and the really good cocktails. If you are going for a meal though I would not recommend this place.
Highly recommend Founding Farmers. Food was excellent and staff was very nice.
I ordered the yummy barbecue pimiento burger. I had it before but this time no sauce and barely and cheese. The Server even knew it was done wrong.
Huge breakfast brunch, lots of choices but nothing was hot that was supposed to be hot. Didn’t matter if it was on a warming tray still not hot.
There was a nice variety of foods. However, line was long for the buffet and it is very noisy so hard to talk. A woman slipped and fell on the wet floor right near my table and they quickly put up their caution wet floor signs. Fortunately, she was not hurt. I would recommend it if you are not trying to have a significant conversation as you are seated very close to neighboring tables. We enjoyed the food, especially the ice cream with all kinds of toppings. I think children will be able to find things to eat like ravioli, French toast or eggs.
It was great as usual! The only concerning incident that occurred was seeing a patron slip and fall on the dining room floor! The tile is very pretty, but slippery!
