The Foundry Rooftop restaurant is located on the sixth floor of the AC Hotel in downtown Dayton. Inspired by the fire within foundries, the factories that produce metal castings, this wood-fired kitchen embraces the flame. Devour new takes on internally-inspired cuisine with our Loaded Potato Pizza and Ingot Crab Crakes, or our signature Foundry Reuben and Charred Meatballs. Hearty, midwestern favorites from Chef's David Belknap and Jason Findley anchor our menu like our Crispy Pork Belly and 24-Hour Chicken. And with a combination of smoked whiskeys, classic cocktails, and local beers, you’ll always have the perfect pairing of spirits to enhance the heat of your meal. Made for Dayton locals, or those local for the day, we invite you to join us on our open-air rooftop patio for dinner, drinks and celebrating your most special occasions with a private event.

    My partner and I had a great time at the Foundry's eclipse viewing party, which was our first time at the Foundry! We sat outside on the patio and Rey waited on us. Rey was kind, courteous, and had a great knack for timing; in other words, we never felt as though Rey interrupted our conversations, but Rey still checked in on us frequently enough that we were never left feeling adrift. We enjoyed a fried mozzarella appetizer with a recommended red wine pairing, which was on the special eclipse menu. There was a live DJ and we liked the music, though at times it was difficult to hear each other talking. Because it was my first and (so far) only trip to the Foundry, I don't know how common it is to have the live music. Overall, we had a fantastic time and we certainly plan to come back!

    The food was very good. For a hotel restaurant, we thought the Sunday brunch breakfast options were very limited. We were surprised we were not offered salt and pepper, and when I asked for butter for my biscuit, the server said he would have to go downstairs to get some. He did provide some jelly. An evening dinner might be a better choice to return again.

    Drinks were great and food was good. Views from outside were really nice if you can get a table outside. Service was outstanding and great staff!

    Fun dining experience with an energetic vibe. Janna at the bar served us drinks and food and she was excellent! We looked for the manager hoping to sing her praises, but we were running short on time so couldn't wait. I hope he reads this! The food was delicious and selections offered are creative.

    Really enjoyed this place. The ambiance was great and our food was delicious. My only complaint is that the parking is non existent and you have to fend for yourself on the street. I understand that they have valet service but they were nowhere to be found so got lucky and found a street spot not too far away. They need to figure this out.
