    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.

    Calamari and fish fry were over cooked, we actually aren’t sure there was any calamari in the breading. We paid too much for a dinner we didn’t enjoy

    Decided to try The Foundry a second time after a not so good first experience YEARS ago. We’ll be going back! We tried several items: bruschetta appetizer, soup of the week (lentil andouille), bacon truffle mac & cheese, garlic parm fries, and spicy Italian pizza. Except for the Mac & cheese, we thoroughly enjoyed all of the food. The service was better than outstanding, thank you Makayla! This restaurant is well managed.

    Went for the members only pizza special only to be told that they had just run out of pizza dough. Third time the special has not been available in the last three visits I made. Had another dish that was good but the management needs to get ordering supplies better organized. So disappointing to go for the special and always be told it is not available.

    Server was very nice but her service was very slow. Don’t know if she had too many tables or what. The food was awesome—we ordered a shared appetizer and soup and a shared dessert. Two out of our three entrees were great—had to send the Salmon back because it was cold. Once it came back, though, it was delicious! We will definitely be back!

    Food, drinks, wait time, staff, cleanliness…all 10/10. Love seeing regulars greeted by name! The food was fresh, perfectly prepared and delicious! The staff were all attentive without being overbearing. Hadleigh was the sweetest! I loved enjoying an entire meal without feeling rushed. Already have made plans to return next week!! Perfect hidden Lake Norman gem!!

    This is the second time this summer that I have gone to the Foundry and requested the advertised special, and the second time I have been told that the special is not available because of the ingredients are not on hand. So disappointing. The food I had was very good but the menu is limited and since I live in the community I look forward to specials that offer new options.

    Food was really good. We had to wait quite awhile for our food after the appetizers. My 2 drinks were served in 2 different size glasses. Menu said it was a tall drink but both were in short glasses. Food was better than last time we visited! So yummy. We will be back.

    Our dinner last night was the best we have had at the Foundry in a while. The server was outstanding, good food and we had the privilege of dining in a small room all to ourselves. Since I had just gotten home from a difficult trip it was especially appreciated.
