Great place for steak

An excellent spot for a good meal or drinks on the back deck. Midweek is much better than weekends, as its considerably less crowded.

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 we caught them on a day there chef was on vacation. The next time I... 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 reasonably priced. The soup and baked potato that accompanied the meal were also well prepared.... More

We were recently 'reintroduced' to FoxFire. It had been awhile since we had dined there, and now we've eaten there twice within a couple of weeks. Enjoyed the wonderful food, atmosphere, and great service both times. Nice menu selection. We look forward to our next dining experience, and being warmly welcomed by Curt.

We arrived so early that we were the first ones there for dinner, and the waitress was training a new employee, so they were right there for us, but without being intrusive. the Tuesday special was a 4 oz. filet and a 4 oz. lobster tail. The price was very reasonable, and the food was very good. The lobster was... More

Nice menu, a little on the pricey side but worth the splurge. Attentive staff. Really great beef and seafood selections. We couldn't resist ordering the salted carmel gelato for desert and wanted to lick the bowl!

We were in town for a horse show in Wayne Illinois. Stayed in St. Charles. I was a little worried from the outside appearance. Go inside! Amazing service, fillet was perfect. In my opinion it is not over priced at all. Our server was the best.

There are so many delicious appetizers, entrees, and desserts! I love the Cajun ribeye sandwich and have never been disappointed with their steaks or seafood. My wife enjoys their salads.

We enjoy the food and service here. Some of the entrees are pricy but you can always get a sandwich or salad too. Food quality is very good and service is friendly and professional. Special to our waitress and the bartender for replacing our drinks when they were not to our liking. Good place for special occasions too - the... More
