About The Foundry Grill @ Sundance
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

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.

First to say that Sundance is a great place to visit on its own. The foundry grill is the perfect dining experience. We have been there for lunch but first for dinner. We had an error on our reservation but the hostess was able to make arrangements and we were ushered in only minutes after our original reservation.
The Foundry Grill experience is amazing. Our server, Jordan, was spot on.
The wine list, like the menu, is paired perfect.
My wife had the salmon, with fingerling potatoes, and I the seared halibut with couscous. The chive buttermilk sauce was the perfect match. I paired mine with the Oregon Pinot Gris. Couldn't have been better.
Our guests both had the bison ribeye. An offering that must be tasted to be believed.
The foundry grill is just about perfect.235.9

We chose the Foundry Grill for our business dinner. It was quite enjoyable! It was a little hard to find since there wasn't a sign above the entry door but from the moment you walked in the decor was rustic and beautiful, the service was very attentive and friendly, and the ambiance was wonderful. A perfect place to take an out of state guest. Our food was fantastic as well! We ordered the appetizers before the rest of the party arrived and they came out super quick!! AND they were gone super quick (so delicious)!! So, "unfortunately"(wink) we had to order more before the rest of the party arrived. They entrees were divine, the specialty drinks were fabulous and a the desert was great too! One of the members of our party had REALLY enjoyed a desert at the Tree Room so asked if they could have that instead. Our waiter was very accommodating, pulled some strings and got it for him! All around fantastic. I would very much give this place my recommendation.

This is the second time we have eaten at The Foundry. Both times we got fantastic food and service. I am sure the service might not have been as quick if it were more crowded, but they really seemed interested in how we enjoyed the meal and were very attentive. We will go back many times in the future.

We just love coming to Sunday Brunch at Sundance. We are always treated as if we are special and important. We come to ride the chairlift, hike and eat! Love it every time! The food is always delicious and there are just enough choices to choose from without being overwhelming. I loved being able to make a reservation online! Wow gotta love technology! :)

We have brunch on a fairly regular basis, and the quality of food as been on a steady decline. My wife looks forward to the bacon but the last few visits the bacon has been undercooked, not crisp, soggy is he best way to descibe it. The rest of the brunch was ok, they have had better options in he past. We do love lunch and dinner at the Foundry grill, but will probably take break from brunch for a bit.

We normally LOVE foundry, it is one of our favorite places that we've come many times and will come many times again I'm sure but this night was our first bad experience. Their menu has changed and they aren't serving some of our fav old standards. Nothing on the menu really sounded good with is rare as I usually can't decide! No pork chop, no ribeye, no tortilla soup etc. I got the pizza which was yuck and my husband got the ribs which also didn't impress. Our salad was over dressed and our dessert was mediocre at best. Such a disappointing experience from a place we've come to have high expectations from. Hope it's not the new normal! We love you foundry, come back!

The Foundry Grill offers a wide choice of dining delights. This is supported by pleasant and helpful staff, mood-setting decor, excellent menu and efficient operations. This venue is a highlight of the Sundance experience.

NOT IMPRESSED...GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT!!! Arrived at the restaurant with great hopes. We were seated at a small two person table...ok, kind of intimate BUT it was in the middle of the room! EVERYONE coming and going and server had to pass by us. Then the table (only 2 feet apart) next to us had 2 loud obnoxious people and the more wine they drank, the louder they got. We couldn't even hear each other to carry on a conversation. There were several empty tables that we could have been seated at and they stayed empty the whole time we were there. I may be able to understand it if we were really late for our reservation and the place was packed and they wanted to punish us, but it was towards the end of the night and they just wanted to keep the customers in one area... all about their convenience. When our server brought our appetizers and bread we asked for two small plates because the couple next to us had taken them just before we were seated because they never got the extra plates they asked for.... well we never got ours either. Salad was good, but you can't mess up a salad too much. The halibut my husband had was tasteless and tough and WTH was that side it was paired with? The pasta I had was good, but I have had better and for far less. We had planned on having dessert, but by this point we just wanted to cut our losses and get back to our cabin. If you are very pretentious you are going to LOVE this place.

We love the relaxed and rustic ambiance of the Foundry Grill. The service is always knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. On this visit, the lunchtime entree selections allowed for varied appetites and preferences. We ordered the veggie flatbread pizza and a catch of the day fish sandwich (salmon). Both were nicely prepared and delicious. Also worthy of mention was my beverage, a very refreshing rocky mountain cooler, consisting of ginger beer, agave, lime and mint - a welcome drink on a very hot day. We'll definitely be back!

The food at The Foundry Grill was surprisingly unremarkable: our entrees ranged from too bland to too salty. However, I'd still go back again because the service was impeccable - attentive and friendly - and the ambience is incredible!

Great experience! For holidays, be sure to make a reservation if you want a table for brunch. They get crazy busy and try to arrive early to sort out any parking challenges that may arise. Brunch buffet was great. Lots of choices, all presented beautifully. The meal can get expensive rather quickly if you like to enjoy mimosas with your meal. Definitely would do again!

Been there a half dozen times for the Sunday brunch which has always been excellent. Prompt wait staff and nice decor. Only downside was the no mimosas before noon. Not their fault, just Utahs' lack of separating church and state.

We've been going to the foundry for over a decade and the quality of the experience has declined over the past few years. The fillet was ordered medium and came out rare. The wait staff was unobservant not sure the experience matches other competitive restaurants.
