Food was just OK, nothing special and the service was slow and non-motivated.

Head over to FKT for Newtown Restaurant Week! They have great dinner for two specials for both meat lovers and vegans. We left full and happy. Their food is always amazing and the staff is the best around, hands down. Thanks for another fantastic meal.

We had a great time! Sitting on back porch was great! Food and service were excellent! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We plan on going back for dinner and sitting on the back porch.

Our server, Alex, was attentive and friendly.

You can never go wrong coming here for a meal. The menu is a blend of old school (Shrimp and Grits) and current food trends (vegan nachos) . It’s nice that there are so many options that don’t concentrate on animal products . Don’t get me wrong. I had the salad special of the day with perfectly cooked medium rare grilled salmon . We enjoyed the music and Alex the waiter was very attentive.

Pretty, rustic but modern place. Service was fine. Interesting menu with decent vegetarian and vegan options. A little pricey for what it is, but would recommend.

The food and beverages were very good. Interesting combination of flavors and ingredients. Our waitress was friendly but not attentive. We ordered an appetizer, salad and two entrees. All the food was brought out at once. We would have ordered a second round of drinks but never saw our waitress after ordering.

I usually love Foundry, but last night the service was very slow (turned in to a 2 hour meal without coffee or a desert) and the food was fair at best. Their prices have also increased and were very expensive compared to the amount and quality of the food. Disappointed.

Our food was wonderful. The short rib dumplings were excellent and our waitress was great. Additionally, one of the managers went out of his way to adjust the temperature when he noticed I hadn't taken my jacket off. He came over to make sure I was comfortable which was so above and beyond what I expect while dining out. I couldn't get over how thoughtful the gesture was. We can't wait to make another reservation soon!

Perfect location in my old hometown. Right on the steam. Solid live music. A little loud. The waitress we had was terrible. She should find another job. Made for an unfavorable memory.

Really beautiful place in a stunning setting. We were in from out of town and wanted to take our host family out. This was the perfect spot. Right on the river, beautiful inside and out, good range of flavors and options for people. We had kids and a vegetarian and everyone found something yummy. Great cocktails. Super friendly and effective staff. Wish this was in Northern California so I could come here all the time!

We had a wonderful experience at Foundry last night! This was the first time since end of 2019 that our adult daughters and we have been able to eat in a restaurant together and it was a perfect night. The food was fantastic, the ambiance and live music were so fun and the staff were excellent. Highly recommend and we’ll be back!

Wonderful new menu and amazing experience as always. We tried the new fried chicken sandwich and it was perfect! Crispy and juicy, amazing house made pickles, and a really delicious Alabama white sauce. FKT will always be our favorite spot in town - the best food and team in town!

I've been here a couple of times. This time, the food wasn't on par as the first couple of times. Wings were greasy and the fish tacos were so breaded there was barely fish. I'm thinking it was just that day as I really do like this place and willing to give it another shot.

There is nothing like Sunday brunch at FKT! From the food, to the service, to the location - you just can’t beat it! The team goes out of their way to connect with each customer. You can just tell that they love what they do and it makes you want to support them even more. Thanks for always providing an amazing experience!
