The Foundry has a great location on Tramside at Jay Peak Resort. They do a nice flatbread and assorted other pub fare. The menu also usually has seasonal dinners that are nice and locally sourced. Usually a couple of good beers on tap long with a full bar so there is no shortage of beverages. IN the warmer months there... More

We had breakfast with our two grade school age children and were not impressed with the food, but enjoyed the mountain ski slope views. The pancakes were spongy, the waffles soggy-like, the egg omelette ho hum. The server, although polite and apologetic, kept on forgetting our requests for basic items, such as milk (instead of cream) for our coffee.

Definitely make reservations for dinner as this place fills up fast, even in the off season. We started with Wings with 3 different sauces. The Honey BBQ was my favorite as was loaded with flavor and good size wings. The Chipotle Wings was a rub which was a bit dry for my taste, but others in our group loved them.... More

The mountain view is great from this restaurant and the people watching is entertaining too! The poutine was out of this world delicious. Burgers were average but I would highly recommend the Green Mountain Boys Melt. It is a messy but tasty chicken sandwich. Service was average.

My 11 year old had the chocolate chip pancakes. Loved them, "They're crispy on the outside and soft inside with lots of flavor!" I don't eat pancakes. If my picky eater raves about something I have to try it. These were GOOD!! My husband and I fought over that which she couldn't finish. This is on top of our respective... More

Family of four - Ordered munchies and drinks. Food was ok (I've had better). Service was fine. Nothing special but close and we didn't have to drive.

The restaurant is well located at the Tram Base... The food is not impressive and rather pricy for the quality the put in your plate. The Seafood Jambalaya is too spicy and you have to search for the seafood! The wine list is decent to good. Wine Prices are reasonable. The Burger was below minimal expectations... the Sausage Portobello is... More

The Foundry was inside Jay Hotel with a view of the metro lift. Our server was Shiloh, and we enjoyed his friendly manner and competence. Our entrees were duck and pasta. The small salads were very generous. All food was of excellent quality. The menu was diverse with kids items, flatbreads and then fancier entrees. There was a large group... More

The Foundry is located right within Jay's resort and isn't far from the tram and chairlifts. My bartender was Heather who was a server filling in for the bartender who did not show. Heather was wonderful, very nice and accommodating. It took her quite awhile to make our drinks (we ordered Martinis) but she was new and we insisted she... More

Had a pleasant dinner at the Foundry. The service was good. The prices were reasonable. My kids got chicken fingers and pulled Pork Sandwich and liked them. I got the special fish that was salmon and it was delicious. Hubby got the BBQ platter and he said it was dry and bland. He did think it seemed like it had... More
