Located in the lively, 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 seated very quickly by the hostess, which was great considering our party had 2 children - age 7 and 5 months. We went on a Sunday at 5:45 and the restaurant was completely packed. Our appetizers didn't arrive for over an hour after we sat down, and our meals took even longer. We didn't leave the restaurant until almost 8pm. The food was decent, but not great, and expensive for what it was. The pirogies had no taste. The mini cheeseburgers were supposed to be cooked medium, but came out well done and were very hard to eat. The fried chicken wasn't as hot as it should be, but it was tasty. Our server was very nice and tried his best by refilling our waters, etc... but he couldn't do anything about the food taking forever. Since our food came out a little cold, I am wondering if it was left sitting in the back for a little while and maybe that would be more of a service issue on his part. Overall I wouldn't race back, and certainly not on a Sunday.

We went for Sunday brunch. The line for food was really long and by the time you got to the front half of the food options were gone. They weren’t refilled fast enough bc there were certain items that were not filled the entire time we were there. The service was really slow. We had to ask our server for things multiple times as he kept forgetting. We ordered pancakes to our table and didn’t get them til the end of our meal. After spending $185 dollars we left unsatisfied with our experience and most likely would not return.

was so excited for the “handmade pasta” it was awful. hard to mess up pasta with salt pepper and cheese. there was no salt it was tasteless and the noodles were thick and dense. I ordered the lobster salad and it was so over cooked. will never go back.
also the bar will not stray from the “bar menu” - ambience is somewhat deceiving but it’s basically T.G.I. friday’s a little dressier.

First impression walking up to the desk to let them know I had a reservation was it was very noisy. That first impression carried through the entire meal. The second impression that was also not good was the list of “Worldwide” draft beers. Of the approximately 20 “draft” beers 17 were from the USA, 1 was from Mexico, 1 was from the Czech Republic and the 3rd was a “bottled” beer from England; pretty bad “World” selection. So first 2 impressions were both negative, hence the overall rating. I would not recommend it and will not go back.

Hi isitinfo: I am so sorry to read that the noise level & lacking beer selection gave you a disappointing first impression. I feel badly that these negatives will keep you from returning in the future. :( This said, please know we're always happy to turn down our music upon request & also love suggestions for beers to add on to our menu. With this acknowledged, we do hope to have you back for another try and please call us at (484) 808-4008 for any reservation help needed. -Amy

Food was delicious, as it is at all of the other FF restaurants. This particular location was pretty busy and therefore quite noisy. It was hard to hear each other. Our server was also pretty slow. Took a long time to get our order taken and get our drinks. Then a really long time to get our check in the end.

Food was mediocre at best. Friend got chicken which was dry and he left half of it. I got ravioli and was told it would be Marinara sauce and it was more Blush with white highlights, not bad the best meal of all. Wife got Trout and it was so over baked it was suppose to be blackened but it was almost burnt. She had to get something else as a side because the rice was too spicy, they gave her Mac and cheese, but brought it when the meal was done so she got it to go which ended up in the trash when we got home. Other friends wife got meal chicken and collard greens which she said was eatable. We didn’t get desserts because it was so loud. We ended up getting Duck Donuts and sat at a table outside so we could share memories. Overall, we tried it but will not go back.

OMG GRAPEFRUIT BRÛLÉE is my new favorite “healthy” food. The hot food was all cooked very very delicious, but was cold when we put it on our plates (maybe to prevent over cooking?). They were accommodating too - when they had an oven malfunction and all we wanted was cinnamon rolls they said to come back in 20 min and they’d have it waiting for us at the front desk (they did). I also have a nut allergy and they broke down each cuisine I could eat. Highly recommend! Price is a bit steep but it’s for a farmers union so I think it’s worth it!

Chicken wings were awesome, pirogies were not good at all- were more like empanadas. Ordered the special fish with crab topping, came back without crab at first. Then when server took to kitchen, came back with COLD crab on top. Fish and crab tasteless, veggies very salty and oily. My sister ordered the butternut squash Ravioli and it was floating in a sauce that was pretty much just oil. My husband enjoyed his fried chicken and our friends enjoyed their meals. Service in general (both at bar and table) seemed slow for the drinks. Took a long Time to get them. For the price, the meal was just Ok.

This was the second time I asked others to eat at Founding Farmers and it will be the last.

The noise level was such that I had a difficult time trying to listen to a guest sitting next to me.

We had lunch reservations on a day when there were several large parties in the restaurant. After being seated, we asked to be moved because the noise from one of the parties was just too much. Unfortunately, the noise level at the next table wasn't much better. Our waitress was prompt and pleasant, but we waited nearly an hour from placing our order to getting our food. The manager did come over and explain that the kitchen was swamped because of the big groups and he offered us free desserts. The food was delicious, although the portions are really too large. The cornbread is terrific and the salads are very tasty.

We love eating here. We bring relatives for special occasions or when our family can’t agree on somewhere else, we can always agree on FF! The menu is vast and fresh. Their drinks and flavored sodas are outstanding. Love the ambiance and menu options. Our server wasn’t the brightest bulb in our last visit. He kept coming back to the table and asking again what people ordered. The service was slow with this one but typically isn’t. We were waiting for 15 min for the check while he was out having a smoke. You could tell by the smell. Still would go back in a heart beat and just not accept the same served

Great restaurant! Beautifully designed space - very noisy so don't think you can have a quiet conversation. 3 of us dined, we all loved drinks, apps and entrees. Garlic black pepper wings are a must. Husband had Crab Louie and licked the plate clean. Generous portions and great values. Thank you FF!

I went to Founding Farmers for the Sunday Brunch after having great experiences for breakfast in the past. The buffet was mediocre, the food was dried up and overcooked. It was very small with hardly any breakfast items and most lunch items. very disappointing. It was $30/person, even for my tiny 15-year-old daughter who had half a plate of food (most places will see how little she eats and give us a children's rate)
I'd go back for regular breakfast, but definitely not for brunch.
