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.

I took my parents to dinner on a Sunday night. My Mom uses a walker and the staff was very patient and helpful to her. The restaurant was cozy and the food was delicious. My three year old loved the mac n cheese. It's pricey but it was a special night out so it was worth it.

We drove over an hour and a half to find this unexpected gem open on a Sunday evening. Best selections were the sweet potato ravioli and the Utah trout. One of our party, a vegetarian, thoroughly enjoyed the one veggie entree offered. The warm bread was delicious and merited a second helping.
The ambiance was chic après-ski despite the warm October temperatures.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and decided that yes, it was well worth the journey.

Food took over an hour to get to us after ordering. Food was cold and lacked flavor. The ribs came out looking and tasting more like a roast and the huckleberry sauce was a weird combination (probably better hot). The raviolis were undercooked and very mildly flavored. The mashed potatoes were cold and thick. The trout was actually pretty good, just room temperature though. The soup of the day (seafood) was decent. I've heard about how great this place can be but for a first timer and for a special birthday it was quite the letdown.

As a visitor from the UK, colleagues told me I should drive the Alpine loop and stop off for a meal at the Sundance resort for brunch. However, I couldn’t reserve a table for brunch on the day I was visiting. So, I decided to book for an evening meal. I ordered the Elk Osso Bucco and mashed potato. The Elk was over cooked and certainly not as tender as the veal versions I previously eaten. The most irritating part was that there was no marrow spoon to get at the key element this dish is named after. The parsnips were undercooked for my liking and cold. The mashed potato was very creamy the best part of the dish.

We have dined here many times, this occasion we were bringing friends who were visiting from out of state. Service was not per usual, we had to ask for the bread and had to ask for water refills. Especially disappointing was a Cesear salad we ordered, as we were sitting there a salad was being served out at the Owl Bar, it looked delicious and a very healthy size serving. Several at our table ordered it and it was about
a third of the size we saw previously.....I should have questioned it but it was hard to track down a server.
In the future I will certainly question it.

I was very disappointed with the food and service. I have eaten here once before and liked it a lot better. My entree this time was totally cold... and really did not love it. Had some soup for appetizer and also was just ok, not great. apple pie did not love...and also cold. not sure we will return again for the expense I was disappointed and I wished more for a birthday celebration for husband. Love the atmosphere, however.

We had a great experience. The ambiance was charming. If seated in the main dining area, it can get a bit noisy, but we we're tucked back in a lovely corner. Our waitress was wonderful. The food was very good. Although I didn't care for the Tusacn Salad, the chartcuterie board was fabulous. My husband had the Elk osso buco, which was delicious. I had the Bolognese, Which I thought was good, but $36 was a bit much for a bowl of pasta. All in all, it was wonderful and we will be going back for special occasions.

We had a lovely dinner here. It was surprisingly very crowded on a Monday night, but fortunately not that loud. Service was a little slow, but we personally like that, as we dislike feeling like we are being rushed. We asked to be seated by the window and we were. We brought a bottle of wine with us and corkage was only $20. The food was delicious. The bread was really good. My trout was delicious and cooked perfectly. My husband enjoyed his filet which was also cooked correctly. Great ambience. A near perfect experience overall. Highly recommended if staying at or near Sundance.

I really expected a better quality of food and was not very impressed with it. The Caesar Salad was full of whole anchovies and was horrible. I understand you use anchovies in the dressing but the whole fish in the salad ruined it. The trout was ok but actually over cooked. Overall very disappointing.

The Sundance Foundry Grill is a treat to the palate. The Grill is nestled in a grove of Aspens peaking through large windows. The culinary staff continues to create diverse menus for their guests. Lunch Appetizers (Charcuterie, my favorite), Salads are artistic and healthy, sample Entrees: fresh fish, pasta with veggies, Chicken or Wagu Beef. Rustic cabin decor with beautifully painted wall murals. Order a glass of Sundance wine! You'll feel Robert Redford's personal touch all around you. Reservations are recommended. Wheelchair accessible. No snow - take a ride on the chairlift and bring your camera. Magical! Beautiful year round.

We have loved the Foundry grill and been regular patrons for over 20 years. Unfortunately, the quality is (once again) slipping. Food was unremarkable and service lacking.

We got clam chowder with no clams, even after the waitress brought a second bowl. The burger which was my favorite in years past was dry, dense and flavorless. We ordered the chocolate cheesecake with berries and got pumpkin spice instead. All the while prices continue to creep up. If we go, it’s all about the amazing ambiance, not the dining experience.

Service was slow, 15 min behind to seat us. I ordered an Angel Hair Pasta but they used Ramen noodles. The fries that came with the burger we ordered were burnt. I would have sent it back but we were celebrating a special night and I didn't want to ruin it by having to deal with their shortcomings.
When asked at the end of the meal, I shared my opinion. I was told that several people had complained.
Well, after complaints, they still decided that it was ok to serve us a subpar meal.
Overall it was very disappointing for the price we were charged.
Not going back any time soon.

We ate outside, and I understand this is a mountain setting, but each of our plates had between 25-50 small bugs crawling all over the surface. It took us a very long time to get our food. We heard other patrons complaining that they hadn't received their food either. It's a great location, but the food was overpriced, the plates were dirty, and the service was slow. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants where I took business clients, but it has gone downhill terribly in the last few years. I doubt I'll be going back again.

Waiter was terrible, guest next to us sent the burger back 2x due to being under cooked, and our burger was not good. Might want to train wait staff and burger for 17$ should hand made from fresh meat not frozen Patty. Sundance is definitely slipping. Waiter Riley was not attentive. Did not bring ketchup until he was reminded twice - by then fries were cold.
