About The Foundry Grill @ Sundance
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.

The Foundry Grill @ Sundance Ratings and Reviews
The Foundry Grill at Sundance is our favorite special occasion dining. The total experience of the drive up the canyon to Sundance, the excellent food, friendly service and resort atmosphere makes it one of our favorite places to dine. When we have guests from out of state we always try to take them there.
Had a great time at the Foundry Grill this weekend. Started our evening at Owl Bar and then popped over at the time of our reservation. They do get busy and we unfortunately did have a wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time to get our table, but it was a Saturday night and there was a lot of food traffic. The staff was exceptionally accommodating though and the food was excellent! It's a gorgeous location and I'd 100% recommend stopping by both Foundry and Owl Bar if you're in the neighborhood!
Our group of four friends meets up at the Foundry Grill for each of our birthdays, and many other times throughout the year. The ambiance of the restaurant (and Sundance in general) is amazing. Over the years, the food has been exceptional at times and just ok at times. Lately we’re in a “just ok” phase. We started with a charcuterie board. Absolutely delicious. Three of us ordered the filet, after commenting that there weren’t any other very appealing meat dishes listed. (What happened to the out of this world pork chop??) my steak was cooked properly, but was missing the garnish and was sitting on a bed of not quite warm mashed potatoes. I probably should have sent it back, but it was fine and I didn’t want to slowdown the rest of the table.
All of the servers are terrific! We especially appreciate the professional and friendly service of Charlie who is simply the best! Really advise you re-think how you deal with the week during Sundance and allow people to get a quick bite and a drink at the Foundry. Sunday afternoon between films we couldn't get either in the Foundry, and the Owl Bar was packed as was the deli....just seems lost a lost revenue source and provide good will to your patrons.
Ate here multiple times on a recent Sundance trip. Menu isn’t huge, but everything is really good. The Angry Muscles are a must. Service is perfect with a top quality staff. Atmosphere is exactly what you’d expect with a rustic cabin feel. Can’t wait to go back.
Took some friends for lunch today. Usually I take people here for the great attention ...but things were a little off the pace of the service. However, then the main dishes finally arrived, the main courses were 'spot on'. The trout has always been good, but the potatoes were overcooked. My wife had the rotolo and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, the desserts were less than adequate. The blackberry chocolate tart was very dry, upon our mention-they removed it from our bill. Our friends had the apple cranberry crisp and gingerbread pudding, but they didn't seem that excited about the dishes...leaving more than half on their plate.
Sundance is one of my favorite places to go visit and spend relaxing time enjoying the scenery, especially during the autumn season, but just went up in January and it was so beautiful with the snow. It is a great destination to escape the city and enjoy a beautiful drive and arrive at a one-of-a-kind resort to wander around, ride, the lifts up the mountain, and especially enjoy the Foundry Grill's amazing, delicious food. The food is unique, phenomenal, and the presentation is beautiful!! I would highly recommend it to EVERYONE!!!
Sundance is great anytime of the year...we live close and always go for the holidays. Charlie, our waiter is outstanding! Friendly, knowledgeable, suggested options and he even went way out of his way to get me a peanut butter cookie!!!! The Angry mussels are to die for!!!!!
We have always loved Sundance and enjoyed their various menu options. Finding ourselves empty nesters for Christmas we took our two college kids for Christmas brunch. The food was tasty but came to the table barely warm and with a lengthy delay which was NOT typical for Foundry Grill. The staff were all wonderful but the menu was lacking.
Every time we are out skiing or vacationing in Utah, we always plan at least one night to head out to Sundance and have a relaxing drink at the Owl Bar and then meander over to the Foundry for dinner. The ambiance is “one of a kind”, the staff are exceptional and the food is absolutely delicious! This place always exceeds my expectations!!
We came during a vacation in Utah. We had a great meal at the Foundry Grill. Some of the dishes could have been a little more flavorful, but all-in-all, they were good. I enjoyed the ambiance, and I really appreciated the availability of non-alcoholic cocktails.
Hostess found us an especially quiet area with a fireplace when I asked for just that. Server was attentive, helpful with specials and in explaining certain items on the menu. She gave us time when we asked for that but didn't forget about us. Also knew the wine menu very well and her recommendation proved to be perfect. It was a great 90 minute lunch and I'll be back for sure.
We went on a quiet Monday night and got a table by the fire. The ambiance was wonderful. A bit pricey but they do have to cart in all their ingredients up the canyon. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were perfect. Just outside the restaurant is a deli and bakery, and they had a delicious lemon tart I had for dessert.
The food is consistently good at The Foundry Grill. The only thing I am not happy about is that I booked this reservation for my niece to take her friends to celebrate her 20th birthday. Since I am out of town, I noted on the reservation that it was her birthday. The Foundry Grill staff didn't pay attention to the note on the reservation and no mention of her birthday was made. I should have called directly to the restaurant.
Dinner, setting and service were excellent. My only suggestion would be to change the light bulbs in the fixtures over the dining bar. They appeared to be fluorescent LED type light, which were very harsh, distracting in my peripheral vision. That brightness was not suitable to the rustic interior at all.
Brunch at The Foundry Grill is the best dining experiences ever! Applewood smoked bacon, stuffed omelets, coconut French Toast with black cherry and honey pineapple butters and maple syrup make you want to come back for more. The coffee is delicious too!
If you have room for desserts, there is a generous selection. I tried a small slice of apple cranberry pie and coconut mousse.
At dinner and brunch, service was friendly and prompt! I enjoyed the new Mediterranean salad with chicken offering for a previous night's dinner. Both the salad and bread were delicious.
Next time, I plan to try the buffalo burger which looked fantastic as prepared versions left the kitchen headed for dining tables.
