Not as good as expected for the prices charged

There were six of us in our group on a week night. I looked up the restaurant online ahead of time so I knew there were supposed to be specials that night. The waitress forget to give us the list of specials. A couple of us had the special Surf & Turf (4oz filet). I order mine medium but it... read more

I wanted to give this place a much better review, it is very charming. When we walked in we were welcomed by the owner who came by our table a couple of times. Our server Sam, was GREAT. The problem happened when our steaks came Sam asked us to check and make sure they were cooked to our liking. My... More

Third time in as many months and in this trip we were overwhelmed by some great wines including the Prisoner and Opus One. The wine list in Foxfire is amongst the best in the area, and a lot of thought has gone into finding some quirkier wines. Everything about our evening was as ever excellent - the staff are just...

We picked this place and made last minute reservations for New Years eve on a lark. We had never tried it, so we were very pleased with how the visit turned out. For the sports people, there are three screens over the bar, which you can see from the front of the restaurant if you want. They had live entertainment... More

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 had called 2 days prior to change us from 6pm to 5:30, and was told... 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.
