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
Unfortunately, the quality of the food was really low. This was a new low. I have typically had good experiences. Our server was great. The dessert took nearly 20 minutes to come out. Our server, thankfully, recognized that was a problem and did not charge us.
Honestly, I was most disappointed with the couple sittle next to us who were jokingly discussing incredibly inappropriate things in a public setting WITH the dining room manager. Very disappointed.
Overall- food quality- below standard
Ambience- still good (inspite of the conversation)
Our server- no complaints
I don't know if I will go back. This was our anniversary and I expected more.
Surprised my husband here for our anniversary breakfast on the recommendation of a friend. I will be recommending it to others, and I will definitely be back. The whole morning was an experience, and the service was impeccable. In nearly 30 years, I have never been offered coffee to go, that's something that will forever stick with me.
I'm perplexed as to why on some visits the menu is full of good food, then other times it's meh.
Desserts needs some help. There was a lovely fresh fruit crisp in the summer months before, now it's no where to be found on the menu. Fresh, local fruit is abundant?
I've been to the Foundry several times. I made a reservation for 5 before the theater. I requested outside but didn't get it. They assured me a 6:15 reservation was PLENTY of time (as it has been in the past). We were seated 20 minutes late. We were unable to stay for our dinners as at 7:50 they had still not arrived. Then we were still charged for our salads and bottle of wine. There was not even an apology just that "it wasn't your fault". It was an embarrassment for me bringing new people here and raving about how good it is.
I took my fiance here for his birthday and was underwhelmed by the food (especially at those prices!) but the biggest disappointment was our server who was not personable in the least. She didn't crack a smile the entire time or even introduce herself by name and even her menu recommendations fell short. I'm hoping this was just one bad apple and it won't spoil the barrel of beauty, tradition, and rustic class at such a special place as Sundance. I may visit the Tree Room again in future, but will definitely think twice about patronizing the Foundry Grill.
A great experience as always! I come back for the charcuterie board, the fresh honeycomb makes it special. We tried the halibut this time and my wife, (not a seafood lover,) said it was the best fish she'd ever had. The food was incredible and a wonderful environment. I will definitely be back,...again. :)
We are locals and love to drive to sundance to escape the valley heat. We often say that we wish the food were better. We keep trying it, only to be disappointed. For the price, it's not that great. The beauty of sundance is well with a look but bring a picnic.
I remember the food at the Foundry Grill being outstanding. I've be going to Sundance for over 30 years. Last night our meal was fair at best. My old favorite, pear, blue cheese, and bitter greens salad (had a horseradish taste). My guess is they used the beet salad dressing by mistake. We tried 5 different entrees, all mediocre. It makes me sad because I love Sundance. But I'm not willing to spend $350 for a meal that isn't exceptional.
The patio at the Foundry Grill is amazing. We were literally eating in a forest! The food however was a little disappointing. I had the halibut and my husband had the filet. Neither had hardly any seasoning. The corn "sauce" side dish that came with the halibut was a very small portion and not very tasty. The service was fine...our water was filled regularly and the waitress was informative but not super friendly. It was a delightful dining experience just because of the atmosphere!
LOVE this place! It has an inviting rustic interior, an impeccably trained serving staff, and more-than-delicious choices on the menu. Sunday brunch in summer is de rigueur if you're in this area over a weekend...leave time to amble around the spectacular Sundance property before or after dining. We are repeat visitors lucky enough to call ourselves regulars.
When we visit Sundance for a hike or zip line, we love to eat at Foundry Grill. My wife got the Ricotta Gnudi and proclaimed it one of the best meals she ever had. I am a picky eater and just wanted some type of grilled chicken dish. I asked our server, Jordan, if that was possible. She offered several off menu alternatives to meet my wishes. Overall, great service, beautiful venue, and reliably good food.
