A lovely restaurant - staff and owners were superb and topped off an evening of great food. We were most impressed with the ample portions during the Barrilicious event. Great food, great service, great venue!

My friend recommended this restaurant to us, knowing we like fine dinning, and well presented food, plus she works there. We decided to take advantage of the Barrielichious menu, and booked to go last night for our wedding anniversary. It is a large multi level restaurant and a patio outside the main street. Our table was overlooking the lower section... More

We stopped in The Crazy Fox enroute home from a long day . We had no reservation, and it was also "Barrielicious" event. The hostess who greeted us was lovely. Despite being packed, they took us to a table , and the food was wonderful. All the staff were so friendly, and the quality of good was a standout. Thank... More

The place is cosy, good location, plenty of parking. Service was ok, nothing special. Food presentation is very good, but it is overpriced for a quality. I had a salmon, and it was a disappointment, as long as it was dry and obviously previously frozen. One shouldn't pay top dollar for frozen fish.

Loved the staff, and food was the best. Had the Salad and the dessert. Soup, and the Creme Brulee was amazing.

We reserved a table for four upstairs. They gave us a table downstairs which was in a poor location. We were not very happy and they did nothing to make the experience better. The meal was good but have had better for the price. The wine list is very expensive. We would not go back.

The menu is awesome- we had the stuffed pork, the pickerel feature and the agnolotti for entrees. The mushroom soup was somewhat canned tasting, but still comfort food, none-the-less. Dessert was tasty- the apple pecan cake was great, and you can't go wrong with chocolate cheesecake. The down-side was the that the portion sizes were smaller than expected, for the... More
