About The Foundry Grill @ Sundance
Sundance, UT 84604
The Foundry Grill was opened in July of 1996. The name is taken from the concept of the large foundry wall located in the main room. The word foundry also implies simplicity and a return to the fundamentals. The room, the service, and the menu are an extension of this idea. The Foundry Grill is committed to providing the freshest of vegetables and meats cooked in our apple wood rotisserie oven. In warm weather, the patio opens for outside dining. Sundance believes in the preservation of our resources; all our water glasses are created from recycled glass and are hand blown here at the Sundance Resort.

The Foundry Grill @ Sundance Ratings and Reviews
Love the ambiance of the room, it was generally busy, but had slowed since our arrival. We booked a later reservation so to miss the rush. We were seated within 10 minutes, the hostess quickly sat us and left. It was probably a good 8 min before we were approached by our server. She seemed in a hurry. She took our drink order and our entree order and then was gone. Our drinks were served by another person. She breezed by and asked if we were OK, served us bread and left. Our appetizers were served by another staff, they tasted wonderful. especially the Brussels sprouts. Our server stopped by to remove the appetizers and she was on her way. After a few more minutes wait we were served our entrees by another server. The food was superb, My husband ordered the short ribs and was thoroughly impressed. I ordered the salmon and was not disappointed. We will return again for the food but not for the service. Our server left a lot to be desired, she stopped by our table 3 times the whole evening and didn't once serve our food. I was not impressed at all, from the hostess (who looked like she just walked off the ski slope in her coat), to our server who flew by our table 3 times. I was however impressed with the young man filling our water and bussing the tables, he did a phenomenal job. My compliments to the chef, and the buss boy, they deserve the tip I left.
We've been going to the foundry grill for more than 15 years and it's sad to say the food quality continues to drop off.
The ambiance is still wonderful but the food is average given the price point. Hope they can up their game or our twice monthly visit may turn into a twice yearly visit.
All of our dinners were nicely presented and in a great atmosphere. Excellent bread/butter served complimentary prior to dinner. My entree of braised beef was a nice portion, just slightly overcooked, but tasty nonetheless. My wife had the burger which was perfectly prepared and served with a choice of 3 kinds of potatoes. A dinner featuring scallops was done to perfection as well. Erin, our waitress, was knowledgeable and offered worthwhile suggestions and was very attentive. All in all, a great place for dinner while at the Sundance Resort.
I am rating my experience very low for this visit. I have been going to Sundance and either the Grill or the Treeroom for over 25 years. It has always been incredible. This past time was such a disappointment. The food was overcooked and the tastes not matched up at all. I had the lamb and it could not have been done any worse and the overall plating and complementing items on the plate were all bad. On top of that the dessert was burnt and poorly put together. After the 25+ years this was a horrible miss from what I had become accustomed to as a 5 star location.
Excellent mountain dinning. Good menu with a large choice of delicious reasonable priced food. Good wine and beer list. We chose some excellent local beers and the Sundance house white wine. Compared to other nearby resorts this is a much better ambiance and value for money. Friendly staff. Service a little laid back if you were in a hurry but who is here? Bar next door the Owl is another true Gem. All in all Sundance is a special place and this restaurant does it proud.
I have never been disappointed with The Foundry Grill. This time I ordered a Ruben sandwich. There was excessive fat on the corned beef. I've had many Rubens in my life but never had so much fat on the meat. I chose an alternate entree and was very happy with it. The server did not charge me for my meal. This one odd experience did not diminish my enthusiasm for The Foundry Grill.
The brussels sprouts were easily the best I've ever tasted (and I love brussels sprouts). They are an absolute must-order if you go. The service was great. The atmosphere was fantastic. The rest of our food was good. Nothing besides the brussels sprouts was note-worthy, though none of it was bad. I was a little disappointed in the lack of options on the menu (but I don't particularly care for mushrooms which ruled out half of the choices).
We arrived at the beginning of lunchtime. We were quickly seated at a warm, sunny table for two next to a window with a cozy view. The atmosphere is warm, quiet and intimate. The servers were very attentive without being omnipresent. Appetizer and drink came out sooner than we anticipated. Entree came out timely as well and both dishes were fabulous! Nothing felt heavy in our stomachs and our mouths were very-well satisfied. The overall experience... TOTALLY worth the price.
My husband and I celebrate our anniversary here almost every year and have always had 5 star service. Our last visit was un-Sundance-like. The waitress did the bare minimum. We felt rushed by her quickly taking our order, walking away from our table before we were done talking, and making very little eye contact. Although, we will go back to Sundance because of tradition and great food we hope for better service and to feel like guests.
Although the food was good, I had reserved a special table to celebrate a birthday. We were given the table right next to the entrance door with a terrible view of a wall with knives on it. Everyone in the party comented on the dissapointing table location. Very high priced for our experience.
First, the service was wonderful throughout the resort, but I won't go back to stay or to eat.
Foundry Grill was breakfast. No, it wasn't terrible, but it's a "resort" -- it didn't meet my expectations. Nor did the room -- though they did upgrade us. Notwithstanding, for the price, I fully expected something better- it was more than what I pay at Grand America... not planning to give it a second try.
Perhaps under the guise of 'rustic'... but nothing special about breakfast -- other than $$. I ordered the yogurt, granola and fruit. Yogurt was ok and plentiful... the berries didn't even fill the little ramekin, the granola -- dregs.
If you're going because it's got "resort" attached to it's name, do more research -- there's a reason they haven't won any awards in a few years. Yes, we ate at Tree as well -- It was pleasant, but again, I expected more.
The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great as always, but the service was pretty poor. Our waitress was super-rushed and acted like she couldn't really be bothered. We were part-way through the appetizers when the main course came out. She totally forgot my soup order. She presented the bill at the same time as the desert was brought out. She tried to whisk away the bill before I had paid, and before we had hardly started on desert. We seemed to be in her way. She looked around when we were talking to her and clearly she didn't listen. It was extraordinarily disappointing for a somewhat pricey place suitable for special occasions.
Menu was very limited at providing appetizing choices for both Appetizer and Entree. Anything close to being appealing was over priced. The only saving grace was the excellent service and ambiance. In the past, one felt he could get a good mix of food, drink, service, and ambiance at a reasonably somewhat healthy price. No longer feel there is value that the restaurant offers except in service and ambiance. Food was so so and expensive. Take for example the soup of the day. Cabbage and lentil soup. Tiny little serving, very one dimensional cumin flavor for $8. This was like a poor mans ketchup and hot water soup and for what I got way over priced.
We also had a lunch experience on Tuesday of the same week. THe food was outstanding. However, there was not enough wait-staff so service was a little slow, especially considering the crowd waiting to be seated. We had a reservation and still waited almost 30 minutes. I love taking guests, especially those from out of State, to experience Sundance and Foundary Grill. I have never been disappointed in the food and seldom in the experience but I do expect enough staff to feel "waited on". ALso the parking needs to be addressed...lately there have been too many non-tagged cars in Handicapped parking places...
We are regulars at the Foundry Grill. The atmosphere is great, and being up in the canyon around Sundance is always a treat, any time of year. The food is generally quite good, though we tend to stick to the cheaper end of the menu (which still isn't all that cheap). On this visit, though, we had some service issues. A $64 wine charge mysteriously appeared on our bill (we had no alcohol at all on this visit). It was no problem to get it removed, but it made us wonder how it got there in the first place, and which table got a free but radically overpriced bottle of Charles Krug Cabernet as a result. Then, when we asked the waiter to divide the bill between the two couples, he simply split it down the middle--50/50--instead of separating it out into the two orders, which is what they've done every other visit. I've never seen that before, here or at any other restaurant.
Always love Sundance and true to form, it didn't disappoint. We hiked and then ate lunch at the grill. The food was great! The service was a little slow but they made it right and to me that's all you can ask actually. Things happen. It's how you handle them.
The setting is glorious, but the food was below disappointing. My salad, which took more than 45 minutes to arrive tasted like it had been made and tossed two days earlier. And even then it wouldn't have had much flavor. I was entertaining guests from LA and was truly embarrassed by the poor quality of the service and the meal.
This was our first visit to Utah and Sundance and we had Sunday Brunch at the Foundry Grill. I think it's the best brunch I have ever eaten. Nice selection of food, cooked perfectly, and presented well. Service was friendly and attentive. Empty plates were removed immediately and patrons encouraged to return for more. The desserts were excellent, particularly the chocolate peanut butter mousse. I would highly recommend it but be sure to make a reservation.
