Nice after ski pub

A nice quiet, open viewed, slopeside pub to unwind and relax with friends after a strenuous day of skiing. Or, a pretty decent little pub to eat lunch, again with friends and loved ones at the base of the slopes. Cold drinks and tasty fare, appetizers, sandwiches, etc. Tables for two or for eight... read more

Wow! I never write reviews but had to after the experience we just had tonight at the Foundry. I had read the service wasn't the best, but we were limited to dining choices because it was a little later-8pm, which is on the later side for my family. Started off with 15 minute wait to get seated & I could... More

We are return customers, first time was just as bad. Went for dinner over the weekend, got some pretty bad food. Thought we were at a resort hotel restaurant and was served something I'd expect to eat in prison. The ribs were dry and old tasting, the fish sandwhich was a joke. Huge bun with this tiny frozen fried patty... More

This eating experience was pretty consistent with all the resort restaurants. Food was decent but pricey which is normal for ski resorts. The wait staff at most of the places were kind of friendly but very uninterested. The service was too slow. We ordered buffalo wings and got a different sauce, they forgot the fries for the kids, etc etc.... More

Not cheap but you get enormous portions and the food is top notch. We ate breakfast here a lot and only stopped to try other places in the resort. Amazing views as the restaurant sits at the bottom of the slopes and has windows around the entirety of the restaurant. Dinner options for just about any taste in food.
