    We sat outside & everything was wonderful. The hostess gladly helped us move tables to accommodate our group, the waitress was prompt & helpful with information about the menu and specials, and the food and drinks were delicious. It was a perfect evening for our family, thank you!

    Good experience. Vey quiet when we arrived but noisier the longer we stayed as more people came. There was a wine tasting event and think it would have been better to hold it in the living room area so it wouldn’t be as noisy in the dining area. Looking forward to some new menu items that I have been told are coning soon! I hope there is a total revamp if the desserts. How about homemade icecream and a good berry crisp?

    They’re truly struggling. The pizza was disgusting! No one in our group of 4 finished their pizza and everyone ended up throwing it out. Crust visibly burnt (black with heavy char taste) yet the cheese wasn’t even melted or stringy. It had obviously been sitting waiting for delivery. Salads were gross. Wilted lettuce and croutons were a very sorry attempt to use leftover cornbread. Yardbird sandwich has changed in two week’s time since having it last. Not nearly as good. Won’t be ordering that again. The only thing they didn’t mess up was the side of fries. They should have never let Mark leave.

    Family dinner. Had 3 specials, 2 scallops, one prime rib, $34.00 per. Went with chili bowl and fish & chips, always good. Don't forget the bread pudding, hot, creamy with vanilla ice cream scoop.

    Reservation at 5:45, seated at 6:45. They did give us a drink on the house. Prime Rib night, ordered 2 medium rare, got well done. Sent back, well done again. Then manager came over with a practically raw piece. It was sad, but the waiter was very nice and apologetic. We live here and that will be our last time dining there.

    We were sat in the back by ourselves and forgotten about. Yes we had reservations. No one took our order or drinks for 15 minutes. Couldn't get refills. My sandwich was cold. Only good thing was the fries were delicious. Not a great experience at all.

    There was a very limited menu provided on the night we ate at The Foundry. I feel we should have been made aware of that when our reservations were confirmed. There were no entrees. We tried to make a meal out of a shared order of calamari and a dinner salad. The calamari was the worst I have ever been served. It was so tough as to be tasteless and the marinara for a dip was still simmering it was so hot; too hot to be used. Our server did a great job, but I will not be dining at this restaurant for a very long time, if ever again.

    we had Sunday lunch at the Foundry. as usual, the food ordered was good and plentiful. the negative was that they ran out of orange juice for the mimosas. so, it was Sunday with $5 mimosas. the restaurant opens at 11:00. we were there at 1:00. and they were out of orange juice in just two hours??? poor planning from the bar staff i guess…

    Overall, we were pleased. Disappointments were the slaw with my fish and chips. It was a bitter leafy green. Also, the noise level makes it hard to talk. Server was very good, especially considering that she covered tables and the bar.
