Description: In the heart of Killington, Vermont, on the banks of the Summit Pond, lies The Foundry. This new addition to the Access Road provides the best in cuisine, entertainment, activities, and scenery! The Foundry offers two menus, an American Bistro-Style menu in the dining room, and a Tavern menu in the bar. The atmosphere of the dining room will surround you with warmth and relaxation, but feel free to keep the party going in the Tavern where we will offer live entertainment a few nights a week. Look forward to year-round activities on the pond, from ice skating and skate rentals this winter, to paddle boat races and Foundry Fly Dogs in the summer! Our outdoor seating will be heated, and open this winter, so come grab a chair and enjoy some of the best views in Killington!

“Best of Killington!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We were recommended to try the The Foundry by our hosts at The Snowed Inn. We knew it when it was the "old place" and went expecting to be disappointed. We went on a Sunday night and we wanted a quiet meal, so we chose the dining room. The bar was busy with après-ski but there was only one other table occupied. The dining room is very impressive with a huge fireplace (gas fire but realistic) and a menu to match. Memorable salads. I had the 2.5lb lobster and it rocked! They do it with a stuffing which replaces the green liver but the shell is still on, for your cracking pleasure. My wife had perfectly cooked filet mignon. A splurge but very good value. We floated into the bar for a nightcap, by which time it was quiet - all in all, a perfect evening.

P.S. We overheard that Monday's was 'oyster special', so we went back for après and ended up eating at the bar which was also excellent with great salads.

“Great atmosphere, good food.”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

We have visited the Foundry several times this winter, and each time the food has been good. We sat once in the main dining room, but it is much more fun in the bar area, albeit noisy!!
The bar menu is good value, the main dining menu slightly overpriced. Great music too.

“Sea of confusion”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Don't bother. 11 dollar house wine, 7 dollar side of fries, an overall debacle. Looks like daddy's money will run out soon

Joel,

Thank you for taking the time to make the Foundry your first and only review on trip advisor. We do hope that you will continue to be a worthy contributor on trip advisor.

For your knowledge. We have many pour wines available by the glass. Our house pour is not $11 as you quoted, but that of $8.50. Most likely you ordered something in a higher tier. Our sides of fries are a basket full of fries, that are portioned to feed a group of people not simply for one person. Many times they are included with the cost of an entree. Case in point, a burger and fries only costs $12.

We will attempt to reach you personally to make sure you are invited back to return to The Foundry. We are confident that your next experience will be far better than your first.

“Best food we had all weekend”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Although we phoned ahead to make a reservation, they could not accommodate our group (10), which was extremely disappointing. The restaurant was very nice though, and we all found the food to be the best we had for our weekend visit
