The last time I was there, I ordered a salad. After 30 minutes, no salad, no beverage. Went across the street and watched. Had my salad with beverage half consumed when they came out to see how I was doing at Firkin & Fox! Service has always been horrible! Food is usually good...if you can wait for it!

Good food! Prices could be a little better, but it's a nice place with good service. We order their shepherd's pies and bring them to work in the winter, and I recently got to have a nice lunch on the patio. Weather was gorgeous, and the service (again) was above board.

My family and I were really tired at the end of our Carson City vacation. We decided that we would order take out and just eat at the hotel so we could get to bed early and relax. After reading an article on Trip Advisor we decided to give Firkin and Fox a try. Using their website we placed our... More

O.K., II have to admit that I am a foodie from Berkeley, so I didn't really expect much in the way of food in Carson City. So I was pleasantly surprised by Firkin and Fox, in the historic St. Charles Hotel building. II ate there with my two sisters, one of whom is a vegetarian, and I was pleased that... More

Great location, mixed in with the historical places, on the Kit Carson Trail Walk. The people there are so friendly, makes us want to go back and actually meet those people. It is quiet, well it was when we were there. The food was fresh and more than you can eat. The fish and chips were huge. Two very large... More

I like this place. The beer, especially the High Sierra Brewery beer, is very good and they have good happy hour which lasts until 7 pm. The service staff is friendly and helpful and they know the regular patons. But the service does tend to be slow and they quite often bring you the service plates and setups after they... More

Held a meeting here. Very close to the Capitol. It is a pub type place, a little old and worn but the food was good. I have eaten here before. I had the fish and chips with a choice of fries. I took the garlic fries. The fish was crisp outside, moist and flaky inside. Two good sized pieces and... More

This bar and restaurant has been renovated xx times since my first visit there in the 1980s. Previously, is was "Jim's Jungle Bar" and a VFW annex / "dive's dive." One entered there at one's own risk. Fortunately, is has been renovated to a rather upscale establishment with "ambiance." It is a great base area to watch the annual Nevada... More
