For those of us who have been visiting Killington for many years, we remember “The Grist Mill,” It was always a fun place for drinking, dining, live music, and even ice-skating in the winter. Some years ago, The Grist Mill transformed into “The Foundry.” The same fun place with a more upscale vibe. It is still a “rustic dining lodge, offering classic American cuisine, a bar area, and live entertainment.” (web) They are “vegetarian friendly and offer gluten-free options.” (web)
On our first visit to “The Foundy,” we found the same gravel parking lot with four, handicapped spaces. If you are dropping someone off, there is a bench, just outside the single-door entrance.
Once inside, we found the same large welcome area, several large dining areas, with well-spaced tables, as well as the bar/lounge area, which is dominated by a full-height, U-shaped bar and high-top tables. There is a cozy, living room like, alcove, complete with wood-burning fireplace. In summer, I love dining on the outdoor, wooden deck that wraps around three sides of the building. If you are going outside, note that two of the doors to the deck have a high “lip” to walk over. The door in the entertainment area is much lower and easier to traverse. Dining outside lets you sit next to the pond, with great views. It’s wonderful to watch sunset over the pond. We sat outside on a perfect night, perfect sunset and a perfect meal. Our server was lovely and very attentive to our needs. Quite a combo, great food, great service and a gorgeous sunset! When it gets cold enough, there is ice-skating on the pond.
This particular evening (3/19/19) we went for dinner, with a side of “Blues.” it is nice to enjoy dinner along with good music. It is really nice to not be rushed. Even though we had finished dinner, our server assured us that there was no rush to leave. Once again, good food, good service and good music! The Grist Mill was a great place. The Foundry continues that tradition.
Large, multi-stall restrooms have a handicapped stall and baby-changing facilities.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.foundrykillington.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
