We had a good meal here on a Thursday night. The restaurant was not crowded and we both enjoyed an entrée salad. Service was a tad slow for not being crowded.

I made a reservation at this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner as it was highly recommended by several of my friends. It started out poorly as when we went to the host stand for our 5:30pm reservation, they could not find us? My husband...More

Really enjoy the good food and atmosphere at Foxfire. Raw wood ceiling beams and white clothed tables make for a rustic yet elegant atmosphere. Recommend the delicious stuffed peppers.

Have eaten here a number of times. Great food and service with an equally impressive price. The menu is not inventive but covered with the classics that are all done well.

Love visiting Foxfire when I need a steak fix. Big steaks, good wine list and very attentive service.. The restaurant has a family friendly ambience with both bar and table dining.

I went here twice, first time I had the filet which was really good and second time the lobster with masked sweet potatoes. Great one too! The red wine Coppola was a good choice

Wife loved it! Great atmosphere. Her Ruben sandwich looked great and tested better. My steal sandwich was overcooked. We agreed that the staff was very attentive. Outside seating pleasant. My vote 3 and hers 4+.

Went there for lunch and ordered the chopped salad, which was $14.00, and it was the worst Chopped Salad that I ever had. My friend had the $18.00 Salmon Spinach Salad and did not like it either. Can not believe how bad everything was. Maybe...More

Conveniently located across the street from the inn at which I was staying. I was dining alone early. Service was excellent and extremely attentive. The host even stopped by several times. The Tuesday night petite filet with a small lobster tail was nicely portioned and...More
