We always have a great time at The Foundry at Trilogy. Really good food, excellent atmosphere and a great staff. Only issue we had was that the food took an extremely long time to prepare. It seemed to impact all customers. We were not in a hurry, so we were not annoyed, but we did wait an long time for dinner.

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.

We like the Foundry very much - Chef Matt is doing a very good job. I have to laugh at Opentable's description of the 'Noise Level' - the top rating is energetic - Wrong - the top level ought to be labeled - "Loud' and that is what the Foundry is. Very poor planning on the 'architect's design - the noise from the bar area over shadows people talking at the table. Members at Trilogy Lake Norman have complained in writing to the club manager and to Blue Star's main office in Arizona - as usual with big corporations - no response. The food is great - but the layout of the restaurant when it is busy causes unacceptable noise. Not the chef's problem or the food and beverage manager's issue - it is Shea Corporation - Terrible response to the restaurant's customers

The appetizers and desserts were the best part! The bbq nachos and skillet cornbread were awesome. The meatballs also good. The pot roast and salmon were ok and the grilled chicken on the salad a bit overcooked. Service was excellent and the wait time for food was much better than last time we were here. The oreo mousse dessert was just enough for us to share- perfect.
