Lovely place for people wanting to have a beer after work or a delicious dinner. The food is we prepared and reasonably priced, the bar area is warm and inviting.

I have been to Founders many times over the past 12 years, and it has always been a great experience. My last review in October was 5 stars. However, this past Saturday evening was a letdown, mostly because of the quality of the fish I was served. I suppose that I should not expect much when asking for Kingklip at... More

My husband kept saying he wanted to try Founders but from the outside it looked pretty empty and I felt it might lack atmosphere. When a friend recommended it however, I decided to give it a go. I was very surprised to see that once entering the place was in fact packed and buzzing. They have a decent craft beer... More

Founders Grill Florida has been around for as long as I can remember. We were a group of 4:- oxtail excellent; steak excellent but 2 of us had the Duck which was a great letdown.

I've been going to Founders for at least 30 years and I've never had a bad meal or bad service. Some were better than others, but never, ever bad. Their current specials are really good value for money and the service is really good. The owner, Faye, is often seen chatting to guests, and it is this hands-on approach that... More

The staff are always friendly, my wife likes to chat a lot, so it works both ways. We normally go there to celebrate something, graduations etc. Sometimes we just go for a Sunday lunch. Over all these years we have never had anyone in our family complain about the quality of food or service, that says a lot! I highly... More

One of our favorite steak restaurants - ever - NEVER disappointed. Always a little quiet when we have been there but would highly recommend for a good mid priced meat treat!!! Whenever we fly back home to SA we make a special trip (sometimes 2) to our favourite Founders Grill.

Amazing atmosphere with fantastic food and great service. Worth every cent! The steaks where perfectly prepared and melted in the mouth. It was tasty with great sauces. The waiters are very friendly and helpful.
