They were understaffed. Food was fine. No major complains except for the extremely long wait to be seated.

I've been to The Foundry twice now, both times for lunch. Walked in, first time party of 5, second party of 7, as we were seated promptly. The place was full, but not crazy busy. Service from Sherman was excellent. The food was fairly priced and ample portioned. The beer selection is also pretty good. One of the great things... More

The service and food was excellent and even the manager was waiting tables! The people at Jay Peak are what made it great!

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

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 and very pleasant service.

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
