Tipp City
About the restaurant
This restaurant housed in a former bank building in the heart of downtown Tipp City offers quality dining in a small-town setting. The decor is warm and welcoming and is a delight for the senses. The fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere while the full bar allows patrons a relaxing stop while awaiting a fabulous meal. The inviting atmosphere encourages relaxed conversation. You may be surprised to find that a restaurant in such a small town has some rather sophisticated choices on the menu alongside your more normal fare, with entrees such as ostrich being offered. If you are looking for a decadent dessert, look no further than the butter-drenched English Tea Cake! An easy drive from all points in the Dayton area, words cannot do it justice. A visit is a must and will be the first of many.

Stopped in for lunch and decided to try their sushi. 3 rolls for a good price and all was delicious. Service was excellent as well. Lots of interesting things to try - I will be back!

About the restaurant
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.

Our very first time here and the standard was very high which is very refreshing. After covid most restaurants lack in cleanliness, service and quality of meals. I had the poutine: steak was cooked to perfection and the steak fries were on another level with fancy gravy and pink peppercorn. I just didn't care for the vegetable which was an entire stalk of broccoli. Mom had the burger which she found delicious and my dad had the meatballs with pappardelle and he almost licked the plate clean. Zoë our server was a delight, she was knowledgeable and fun and took great care of us. And the location can't be beat. Highly recommend this restaurant. Even if only for a rooftop cocktail. They have valet parking for 13 dollars.

Not bad but I made the mistake of expecting something like a carbonara and there was none 😔. I got shrimp and lobster fettuccine which was okay but somewhat dry. I asked for extra sauce, which helped. I might return and try something else.
