About

The Foundry Grill was opened in July of 1996. The name is taken from the concept of the large foundry wall located in the main room. The word foundry also implies simplicity and a return to the fundamentals. The room, the service, and the menu are an extension of this idea. The Foundry Grill is committed to providing the freshest of vegetables and meats cooked in our apple wood rotisserie oven. In warm weather, the patio opens for outside dining. Sundance believes in the preservation of our resources; all our water glasses are created from recycled glass and are hand blown here at the Sundance Resort.

First time enjoying the restaurant. The halibut tacos were delicious! Loved the watermelon that we made our version of it days later. The service was friendly and attentive. Cant wait to return in the Fall. A must visit.

This was the second time we have been here. The first time was great, service, food, drinks and price all good. They changed the menu completely which was disappointing. The waitress seemed like she didn’t want to be there and for $160.00 for 2 people I wish I could say I really enjoyed my meal but I could have made it better for 20$ and I’m not a chef.

Eeek! What a horrible experience. We were greeted by a very moody girl. Our waiter came to the table maybe 2-3 times the entire time. He brought coffee to two of our table members, not on saucer and without spoons to stir the cream. Our filet mignons were so well done, when we had asked for medium rare. We had asked for bread to nibble on while we waited for new steaks and it showed up 20 minutes later after the new steaks were brought out. They brought out two more streaks and mine was, I kid you not purple and squishy. Not medium rare. I don’t even know what to call this. It was like a frozen piece of meat they were trying to dethaw. I ate two bites and was sick the rest of the night. The dessert was not worth the money. So disappointing. We brought our out of state guests there for the food and ambiance and we were met with unskilled kitchen/chef staff and poor customer service. Do not go!! Not worth the money. Try the yummy sandwiches in the store. Definitely worth it.

Have eaten at Grill so many times over the years. First time being disappointed. The menu is less varied, the portions much smaller, and the prices higher. Sundance has such a good vibe. Don’t start to compromise

We were at at Bob’s Table and it was amazing (thank you Scout). It was tucked back and in front of a beautiful fireplace. Our food was served with perfect timing. Water glasses filled and food descriptions were a plus by our server! The quality, temperature, and taste of the courses were impeccable! We got our dessert hot teas with mountain honey and coconut milk in to go cups and walked the property while sipping! We even saw nearly a dozen hummingbirds by the beautiful waterfalls and pond area!
Perfect evening..... the drive down the loop at sunset was the cherry on top!

Everything on their menu from Cocktails to Entrees are incredible! The Brussel Sprouts on the apps are TO DIE FOR and their truffle mac n cheese is delightful too. I suggest ordering a cocktail if you drink too since they are all unique and have a nice twist to them. Enjoy! Beautiful ambiance and setting too!

Really loved this place. I got enough food, the pork chops and the burger were incredible. Both kinds of fries were amazing and the sauce with the sweet potatoes was just as good. The Mac and Cheese was hard to stop eating even though we were full. I'm excited to go back soon and often. We want to try more from the menu since we trust pretty much anything that comes out of the kitchen.

We have been long time patrons of the Foundary Grill and have come to expect excellent service and great food in a beautiful environment. While it is as picturesque as ever the food was a step below what we expect and the service was abysmal.

After checking in with the host he told us that he would come next door to the owl bar while we waited for our table. 20 min after his estimated time we came over to check when he informed us that he had called our name twice before he remembered that he knew where we were and that he had told us he would get us. Embarrassed, he showed us to our table.

Our waitress was friendly and conversational but would disappear for LONG stretches at a time. We never saw her more often than once every 15 min and went 45 min once between her checking in. She forgot to bring 2 rounds of drinks, got one entree wrong and was never around for us to inquire about progress. Service was so slow that after our appetizers hadn’t been cleared 10 min after we had finished them we piled the plates up in the middle of the table to signal we were ready for the next course. She came over and asked if we were ready for dessert!! “Probably not before we have our entree’s.”

Now I love a nice relaxed meal and didn’t mind being there for 2.5 hours. What did bother me was feeling like we had been forgotten about. We couldn’t have gotten out any faster if we had wanted to because the service was so slow. After the ordeal our waitress offered to comp desserts for the table and then never brought out a dessert menu. We ended up having to go ask the hostess for the check because our server was MIA yet again and we had to leave to pick up kids.

I know that everyone has an off night from time to time, I just hope that this evening was an example of that and not a new norm coming to the foundry grill.

We waited for 30 minutes before our server came. He took our drink order and our meal order at the same time. We were so hungry! Thankfully, our food came fast. But then, never saw our server again. No drink refills, never to check on us. Nothing. We waited another 30 minutes after we finished eating to see our server & ask him for the bill. It wasn’t a busy night, so I don’t know why his service wasn’t better. I don’t want to go back if this is how long it takes every time. Not a good first impression.

We had dinner at the Foundry Grill. Dinner was served outside on the terrace which was very nice. The dining area is secluded by plantings and trees, and we were entertained by hummingbirds at a feeder. Some dinner offerings are similar to the Tree Room; however, entrees are prepared differently. We had the filet mignon and salmon and both were good. Servings are adequate but not over-filling. Our servers were very attentive. While some complain that service is slow, it is not a place where I would want to hurry at all. Our waiter was very considerate of my questions concerning dietary needs. Overall, we were very happy with our dining experience.
We also had breakfast indoors in a quiet room with beautiful windows overlooking the garden. It was peaceful, and the food was abundant and delicious. Service was attentive but leisurely as we were not in a hurry. Very enjoyable.
Overall, food is very good, as we expected here. The prices are are a bit high; however, considering the setting of this small boutique resort, the cost was as expected.
We will definitely return.

We had to ask various employees 3 times if someone could take our order after being ignored for over 20 minutes. The poor service impeded the rest of the Venus.

The food, as always was AMAZING! It was my boyfriends first time up at the grill and he loved it too. We didn’t get the best service, which is uncommon. Our waitress was not attentive and some of her comments were slightly underhanded. Maybe she was having a bad day? The ambiance is wonderful and we enjoyed our dinner very much!

Food and service were great! A little pricey but it’s a nice restaurant so didn’t expect much less. Had a variety of selections both food and drinks. They also had gluten free options as well! Server was very informative as well. Ordered the chicken and filet - portions size was good too. Great scenery, being in the mountains on a ski restaurant.

We stopped into the bar before dinner, which is really cool. Just be aware that you can't take your drinks into the restaurant...so bottoms up!
Our service was excellent the entire evening, and the food was fresh and done perfectly. My seafood was a little on the salty side, but with fantastic flavor.
Before or after dinner try checking out the patio and chillin' by the fire with friends :)
