We were here a few years ago on a random drive on route 34 and loved this place. After 4 years and an ownership change, this place remains as awesome as I remember it!

First time diners, greeted very nicely and seated immediately. We had a reservation, which was simple to make. Server came by quickly, we ordered drinks which were served promptly, water furnished at table, which was nice. Menu was interesting and had a good selection of food. We tried Nachos, which were a meal in themselves. And the Brisket sandwich which was fabulous. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice meal, good service. They have outside dining, but it was chilly and raining so we sat in side. Plenty of space between tables and not to loud. So our overall experience was excellent.

Staff was super friendly and attentive. A lot of attention paid to social distancing and keeping everyone safe. The food was amazing as always! I had the PCBLT, my husband had the fried chicken dinner and we were both blown away!

The deck overlooking the river was the perfect location to enjoy brunch on a sunny October Sunday.

Nice job. Sat outside which they don't take reservations for but was desired. Short 10 min wait on a Thursday eve. The papparadelle with lamb ragu and the chicken curry bowl were both very good. The server was spread thin but reasonably attentative.

This place knocks it out the park. I suggest the short rib dumplings, a dump truck full of them. The seasonal lemonade was awesome and overall experience was great! Recommend this to anyone who wants a great meal.

Made reservation but had to wait for outside seating 😡.
Ordered lamb ragu with spaghetti and Parmesan - received a lamb burger - pasta arrived moments later without the Parmesan; server was inexperienced and food wasn’t special - I really want to give a good review with all the Covid 19 difficulties but this was an honest disappointment - come here if you want a beer and burger and you are in town.

The food was good but I wasn’t crazy about the dessert. The drinks are really good. There seemed to be additional items in a dish that are not described. Items you wouldn’t expect like cauliflower in a ribs and grits dish. I also had a curry dish that had the same cauliflower. Neither description mentioned cauliflower. Luckily I like it. Place is pretty, ambiance is nice. Handled Covid well.

the host was very attentive and kept us up to date as we were waiting for a table outside. The food was delicious as were the drinks. The menu was very inventive. My husband and I did enjoy the music. The service was also very good. We would definitely go back and bring friends.

This was our first time eating at a restaurant since the pandemic began. Foundry was extremely thorough in their preparations but they did so in a way where it was only minimally noticeable. The server we had was phenomenal. He was great with recommendations and with attending to our young kids. Food was very tasty! Definitely recommend the dumplings! Thanks for the fun night Foundry! We’ll be back soon!

Ate brunch out side on a hot day. Pulled pork Benedict was very good. Short rib hash was good, perhaps under-seasoned a little but easily rectified. Staff was professional and very safe environment.

Great dinner and evening out with the wife! Kudos to Clark, Kate, and their staff for executing everything well! Greeted warmly by the hostess and walked through the safety procedures so as th keep us all healthy, great attentive service with all staff wearing PE , added benefit of love acoustic music on the patio, excellent meal and wine selection..and make sure to save room for dessert! Had the Mochi ...omg! Thank you again for making an evening out enjoyable and safe. This was my wife's first time dining out since Covid and she was impressed and felt safe and comfortable dining with you! See you again soon!

I have enjoyed the outside dining at The Foundry twice since they re-opened and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The staff wore masks at all times and the guests also, except when eating or drinking. As usual, the food choices are excellent and well prepared. Staff were courteous and kept to the social distancing rules. All in all, a great outdoor dining experience.

My family and I are big fans of the restaurant!!! Cocktails and food never disappoint. Outside patio over looking the water (instead of a parking lot) makes the outdoor experience as a true get away. Highly recommend!!!

Excellent burrata small dish and best Caesar salad ever! Entrees were also very well done. Despite the restrictions regarding Covid 19, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The outside deck is a real plus with views of the stream and nicely decorated with flowers and umbrellas. Overall a great time and will definitely go back soon.

Nice place to eat. A little pricey for what you get but really good food. If you do get to sit outside try and get a table on the edge overlooking the water and ask to have the shades pulled down a bit to shield you from the sun. We were seated along the building which is still nice, it's just that we were right next to the musician which made it very hard to hear each other.
