It's so refreshing to see a new local business such as this thriving and contributing in such a positive way to our downtown environment. Clearly the foundry is run with attention to detail and extreme care....reflected not only in the amazing construction of the building itself but in the well constructed menu...taking the comfort of pub style cuisine to a whole other level with a refreshing new spin on traditional dishes. I'm confident in saying that anyone walking out with a full belly will also be leaving with a big smile on their face as well as the intent to return :)

Awesome place to just go and hang out with friends for the night, great food, I had the Mac and cheese and it had a nice spice to it and an awesome sauce, I love how they have vegetarian options and also gluten free choices. Their beer, the foundry cider, tastes amazing and the overall atmosphere makes you feel great, lots of beautiful wood and an amazing mirror behind the bar. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone local or even any travellers, great food, good prices and an awesome place to hang out for a gathering. 5/5 in my opinion!

Not only is this place gorgeous on the inside, the food is unreal. My favourite is the spinach ravioli (sauce is amazzzzzing) and I also love the buffalo chicken spring rolls. I'm super happy that some of the ingredients are local, too. And locally brewed beer on tap ! If you'd rather not be there when it's too busy, go before 7:00pm, especially on the weekend. I've already reccomended The Foundry to many people !!

I wanted to like this place - it's a great location in downtown Port Arthur and a big space - but I'm afraid the food was not good. I had a salad which had clearly spent too much time in a refrigerator and was, as a result, bland and mushy. It was also an odd combination - onions, tomatoes and blueberries (all of which ended up tasting like onions). Also had their vegetarian chili on fries - the fries were OK but the chili was, again, bland and unappealing. The service was good.

Great girls night out. Drinks and service were good. Food was great. They are clearly having fun in the kitchen - it shows in the quality and execution of the food.
Can't comment on entertainment as we were there early in the evening.
