Restaurant still needs to improve on consistency. About two weeks ago, I had the Asian chicken salad and it was delicious. Chicken was cooked properly, correct amount of dressing applied and presentation was eye appealing. This past week, I Recommended this salad for my friend and I also ordered. Chicken was all plopped on the bottom, chicken was all dark meat with skin on and there were many pieces of gristle. Presentation seemed to be by someone who didn’t care.

Thank you for recommending The Foundry to your friend, we can ensure this will not happen again. We hope you will return again. Thank you!

The Foundry has a versatile menu which offers options for everyone! The menu includes several pasta dishes, steak and Frites , Salmon, Shrimp and Grits plus BBQ and great thin crust pizza. I have eaten at the Foundry several times and always get a nice meal at a fair value. There is an extensive drink, beer and wine list as well.
Give the Foundry a try you wont be disappointed!!

Ordered the Burnt Ends. Previously enjoyed very much. This time, however, meat and the beans were much too spicy to eat. Barely ate any.
On another note. Anytime I have received mashed potatoes as a side, they have had the taste and consistency of instant potatoes.
I wish more "ordinary" dishes were offered. I don't think we will be returning any time soon unless we see a change in the menu.
Love the atmosphere and service.

As usual,the food was not to our liking.we both had the meatloaf and it was dry and very chewy. This has been an ongoing issue. We have a group of people we eat with on Thursday nights,and out of the 15 people,95% of them don't like the food either. We have been finding other restaurants in the area with better menu selections,better value,better pricing. The Foundry needs to take a step back and rework the situation.

We loved The Foundry at Trilogy. The service was friendly and attentive. The manager came to our table several times to clear plates and chat. The food was exceptional. My husband had the prime rib special, it was tender and flavorful, he said that the mashed potatoes rivaled mine which is quite a compliment. I had the salmon. It tasted very fresh and was seasoned well. It was served on a salad of quinoa, spinach, cucumbers, radishes, cranberries and a yummy champagne vinaigrette. It was delicious. We shared the bread pudding for dessert which was also delicious. The prices were very reasonable. The wine was really good and reasonably priced. We will definitely frequent this restaurant and take friends.

My wife and I went out for our Friday night date and ate on the patio at the foundry… I had the fire roasted stirfry with salmon and she had the fish tacos… Both enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine from the five dollar keg pour. Quite honestly everything was excellent and we had a great time. It was a great value for the evening @ $62 plus tip

This was our second time at The Foundry. The first time was outstanding. However, this second visit (party of six) our food, which was stir fry with salmon, was extremely overcooked and soggy and not at all well-seasoned. One other member of iur party had to send back the fish tacos because they were too spicy to eat. The Negroni that we ordered was at least 80% ice, and a complete rip off. Additionally, several of us at the table ordered wine by the glass. One of our party received a pour that was nearly double everyone else's. We later found out that someone at The Foundry was a friend of this individual. Just for situational awareness, that type of thing is not what you would expect from a restaurant like The Foundry nor is it appropriate perception-wise for guests.
Because our first visit was so good we will probably visit this restaurant again however, if the same issues arise on a third visit they will lose our business forever.

We had a house guest in town and treated him to a Sunday dinner at The Foundry. Two of us had stir-fry one plain and the other with steak. They were both delicious. My husband ordered the Sunday special-chicken cordon blu sandwich. The chicken was breaded and fried with the cheese and ham on top. It was a little dry, but flavor was good. All in all a very good meal. We’ve eaten here multiply times and always treat guests to a meal at The Foundry.
