If you are looking for a "hometown/every town" Bar & Grille" you're in luck. The food is always good, friendly atmosphere, and it's just like a hidden gem you'd find at home. Lots of regulars here and not far from Vacation Rental Homes and Hotels that serve the Disney Area,and the Annual Leesburg Bikefest route. Prices are comparable to the... More

The Rusty Fox has been in Clermont for many years and in some ways shows it's age. The decor and atmosphere are somewhat dated and it caters heavily to the locals, weekend arrior biker types and large retiree population of Lake County. It still has a good bar and pretty decent food. The prime rib lunch special on Fridays is... More

For this caliber of a restaurant the food was very, very good. The restaurant was quiet when we were there but the friendly service and food was very good.

We have been going here regularly for their open face prime rib sandwich special on Fridays for 8.99 which has always been terrific and bragged to all our friends about it. Today we arrived a few minutes before 4, the prime rib special was still written on the chalkboard $9 in the entranceway. However, we were served the prime rib... More

My friends and I dined here for lunch after hearing that it was a popular restaurant with locals. We were there on a Monday for and there were only a few other diners there. It took us well over an hour to be served our lunch. There were plenty of apologizes, but that was no excuse. The manager gave us... More

We have dined at the Rusty Fox several years ago and had a good experience. My parents, who live in the area, have dined there for years. It changed ownership or management sometime over the past year or so and has definately declined. Our server (don't know her name) was very good and apologetic for the issues coming from the...

Overall the food was ok....prime rib was very good. Salad was average, bread was ok. The service was slow and the prices were a little high! Very dark atmosphere, bar seemed to be doing fairly well, but restaurant was not too crowed for a Saturday night at 6 pm. Family of 4 cost us 113.00 w/o tip. All had steak.... More

We are new to Clermont and want to try out more "local owned" places. The Rusty Fox was recommended to us by friends. It's definitely a local owned place which is what we were looking for but nothing "wow'd" us. Steak was decent, nothing great. Service was decent, nothing great. Cesar salad had zero taste. We just felt it was... More

My husband and had not been to the Rusty Fox since it was remodeled and were greeted by the owner Tim Flowers who welcomed us like we were family. Everything looked very nice and clean and we both had the prime rib, mine was medium rare and his was well done. I have to say it was the best prime... More

The 4 of us went on a Wednesday night when prim rib is on of their specials. All 4 of us ordered it and it was prepared to each of our taste. Service was fast and were were not rushed out. In fact we sat and talked for a long time after finishing our meal with no problem.
