I was attending a concert at Westdale Theatre and wanted a place to eat that was close to the theatre. The Snooty Fox fit that description. It is a casual pub with pub food. There is nothing remarkable about the interior design of the place....I found the service to be friendly and quick. I ordered the roast beef dip which was quite tasty. The dip was a bit too salty. My order also came with french fries which I thought were quite good. My one friend ordered chicken parmesan which she thought was good but her pasta was not hot it was warm. My other friend ordered the steak and guinnesse pie. She said it was tasty but there was very few pieces of steak in the pie, lots of carrots and mushrooms but short on steak. I also had a draught beer, a barking squirrel which I think is a very good beer. They also have a special price for food on different days, for example our entrees were only 7 dollars on Thursday They also have an accessible washroom on the main floor so anyone with a mobility issue does not have to use the washrooms downstairs. I would eat here again if attending a future show at Westdale TheatreMore

After having a meal somewhere else we wanted to have a drink before going to the cinema. We walked in and walked out,,,the bar stools were in tatters...how can they expect anyone to want to come in?

Have been going to the Snooty Fox for years, mostly for Trivia Night , on Mondays. They have their Fox Burger Special with fries for a very, very reasonable price. They also have good beer prices, especially for certain types of beer on tap. The...Trivia is very good, after they have TV Bingo. If you win the Trivia the night you are there, you get a pitcher of beer for free.More

We were out and about in Westdale and wanted a place to have lunch. I tend to be a big fan of Pub Grub so we thought we would give the Snooty Fox a try. This place is close to McMaster University, and I suspect...a lot of the patrons are University students. The interior is pretty tired, worn and dark like you would expect from a Pub. The bathrooms are in the basement and I thought were a little grungy with the graffiti and such. Our waitress was Maddy who was very friendly and helpful with input on the menu selections. My partner went with the Eggs Any Style Breakfast ($8.99) which came with 2 eggs, bacon or ham or sausage, home fried and toast. She was pleased with her meal, and as I stole some from her I can say that the home fries were nicely done. I went with the Steak and Guinness Pie ($15.05) which came with beef, onions and mushrooms covered with a puff pastry, and a tiny side Yorkshire pudding, and incredibly delicious mashed potatoes. Overall I would say that Maddy gave us good service, the food was okay, but that the interior and the washrooms could really use some cleaning up.More

It is a friendly bar. We had great service with OK food. On first impression you probably would not go in. Would think it popular with university students. Menu offers a good variety for simple meals. I

I almost filed a missing persons report for our server, she disappeared for too long. We ordered a pitcher and she didn't bring it for 25 minutes.

Snooty Fox is not snooty in any aspect. The few times I have stepped in for a drink my wine glass looks as if it has never been near the dishwasher,....cringe worthy. As the "2 for one main dish deal" was on offer we decided...to stay and eat. Do not let the one free dish entice you. My stir fry was suppose to be curry cream but, alas, arrived drenched in a sweet and unappealing teriyaki sauce. Granted, this is a dish that is done so badly in most restaurants I never order it. The fajitas were passible. Perhaps try the bar snacks ?More

Visited with s group of friends on a Saturday night. Great atmosphere, good service, and a darn good deal with the 2-for-1 entrees. A large University crowd and pretty much standing room only after 8pm. I would definitely return.

Don’t let the dark interior fool you. Friendly staff and good menu. Dropped in for a late afternoon snack on a Sunday. Free parking on Sunday right out front. Very quiet inside. The nachos were a generous portion and the chips with curry sauce was...a very large portion. Will visit again.More
