We take a short walk & were there. We loved being able to sit on the nice warm tiki deck this evening. Who would have thought that this would be possible this time of year. We felt very safe & distanced from others. Our burgers...were awesome!!! Loved seeing Mike & the other staff. They are all very friendly!! Would definitely recommend to others. Great place to eat/drink & golf!More

Everyone is so friendly! We walked in the other night, and the hostess who recently got off her shift was having a drink and appetizer with friends. She got up and came over to greet us and escorted us over to the hostess stand so...we could get seated! Above and beyond the call of duty! Great staff, great food and drinks! We love it here!! Thank you!!More

Waitress didn't show us bill. Said it was $139. I questioned 2 different times asking if it was $139 or $100.39. She said $139. As we were leaving the money plus tip all in cash, she told us $100.39. We were going off her original...amount $139. This was a new waitress and very unsure of amount. Suggest they print check so it is understood from the start. Also, 1st time ever getting our apps and our meal at one time. Waitress should know how to place order and the correct timing. Not our normal experience. Excellent food. Will overlook errors due to experience of waitress. Learning experience for herMore

Karen, Thank you for your review. You are right and you should always be given a receipt if asked. We have talked to the staff and will work to hopefully not have this happen again. With COVID we are trying to have people touch things...More

We received an email that told us that happy hour was back at Foundation, so we decided to try it out. When we arrived, we were greeted in a friendly and welcoming manner. The upper deck provides nice views of the grounds and is our...preferred area to sit, so we asked to be seated there. We noticed appropriate Covid safety measures were being followed. Our server was very friendly and attentive, checking on us frequently. The specials were very well priced and the regular menu items were also priced reasonably. Our food came out hot and tasted delicious. Serving sizes were also very good. We had a very nice time and will return.More

Love the atmosphere, great food, drinks and friendly service. We have now 3 times and it gets better. Outdoor dining has plenty of tables. Love Taco Tuesdays and Clams special on Thursdays. Fries are the best. Love the music too which is a plus. Reminds...us of Florida outside restaurants 😉More
