The Foundry turned out to be great. The food was FANTASTIC the night of the event but we had been a little nervous because we werent able to taste it ahead of time. We heard great things from people who had been there before and all of our guests had great things to say about the food too. In person, the staff were very helpful but the email communications were not always smooth but the more we met in person the more I think it was simply misunderstandings through the email. The night of our event, the staff was very helpful and really helped make everything run smoothly.

I held my wedding reception at the L&N Train Station at the Foundry on the Fair Site. From the beginning of my planning process ( 14 mon. prior to my wedding date) the women who was my go-to-person was a nightmare! I have wanted to have my reception in this historic train station for years and I tried to let Mary-Ann Green (the manager) not ruin it for me but that was not the case. In the months leading up to the event she was VERY rude to my mother, my father my caterer, and myself. She would make certain exceptions for one bride and when I asked for the same treatment I was denied and then belittled. She and several of her associates had horrible customer service and I wish I had never met them. The worst part was that on my wedding day there was a problem with the sewage and my whole reception smelled like poop (to put it lightly). Guest were complaining, it permeated the food, so the food tasted bad and to make matters worse when I called for someone to fix it they said they couldnt smell it and that all my guests were liers. A man in a cut off t-shirt and nasty dirty jeans was sent walking around my reception yelling at my mother, father and me THE BRIDE in front of our guests. He called my mother a B*%ch for complaining about the smell and called me a trashy liar. I would not wish my worst enemy to have their reception here. The site is beautiful but the people are the meanest I have ever met.

We loved the food we had at our reception. It was delicious and decadent. The only problem I had was that my pork chop was really tough but everyone else's seemed to be fine. We were grateful for such great service.

We had the reception at the L&N Railroad Station (which is owned and operated by the Foundry)- Absolutely gorgeous! Exactly what I wanted.

We had our reception at the L&N Station in Knoxville, TN. The site was beautiful, and the staff did an excellent job. The food was catered by the Foundry, and I have never heard such glowing reports of the food from wedding attendees. Sadly, I did actually eat the food myself, so I cannot personally comment. The only complaint I have is that the manager of the Foundry ensured me that a take-home bag of wedding food would be prepared for us before we left, and it was not. When we got home, all we had was cake! Everything else was perfect. Very easy to work with.

We had our wedding reception at The Foundry. With over 300 guests, we wanted a big place that we didn't have to decorate a whole lot. The Foundry is an old beautiful brick building in downtown Knoxville. The service is great! We had more guests show up than actually responded, and there were additional tables set up in no time at all. There is a reception coordinator there so you and your parents can actually enjoy the night instead of worrying about all that needs to happen. There are strands of lights that hang from the ceiling and they make all of your pictures look FABULOUS!

I would recommend the Foundry to anyone for a ceremony and reception or just a reception! The food is great and the staff is WONDERFUL -- best place in downtown Knoxville for any event!!! :) Great photo opportunities inside and out, too. Price is very reasonable for everything you receive in your package.

The Foundry was so beautiful and the staff was so helpful! Just make sure to tell the staff if you want them to leave the food out long enough for your guests to be able to get second helpings. Also make sure to specify what kind of bar you want (if you want one). They will do whatever you like! They are wonderful and Gorgeous!
