The short drive off the main drag is misleading but in no time you come upon the very large parking lot. As you enter you need to ring the doorbell to get in. They answer it promptly and greet you warmly. I understand the bell is from when they had alcohol serving rules for clubs only. The inside is very... More

This place is a very different than anything you will have been too...once you turn onto the gravel road to the restaurant, you will realize what I am talking about...looks like a trailer park...but don't be fooled...the place is great...you will have to go to the far back door...and then ring a doorbell to get in...rumor has that was an...

Dined here on a Saturday evening on the recommendation of the front desk clerk at the hotel we stayed at. We were not disappointed. We were greeted promptly and warmly and shown to a comfortable side booth near the back of the larger of two dining areas. The building is an old Am-Vets facility and we were informed that that...

I have been here many times. The ribeye is great. Even the hamburger steak is good. The only thing i can say stay away from that I know of is there spaghetti it's not good. Over all good place to eat.

Prime rib was melt in mouth good. Very we'll seasoned and perfectly cooked. Also had the black and blue salad which was great. Steak topper was cooked perfectly and it had more than enough blue cheese. Great atmosphere and prices were very reasonable. Will definitely be back.

Last fall I wrote a review about a less than positive experience at Fox and Hounds and was pleasantly surprised to see that Tim, the owner had responded. Last week, my husband and I made a return trip and found an entirely new atmosphere. We felt welcomed, met some others who were apparently 'regulars' and enjoyed speaking to them. It... More

Food had poor taste and was not properly cooked. Salmon was still swimming and the cow was still grazing. Meals were to come with deserts but we were not told they were out until we asked. They said we could order a brownie but they would have to charge us for it. Waitress kept flat drinks filled but hardly spoke... More

If you value all your customers, perhaps you could at least say hello to everyone instead of stopping to talk to a select few. A few nights ago, I was there with friends for a special occasion. You came out from your office, made a point to speak to two couples at the bar while not even speaking to anyone... More

We appreciate all our customers & I usually make a point to greet everyone I can. Your reminder that having your mind elsewhere maybe taken as a lack of interest, when it's not the case. I will make a more concerted effort to include everyone, I love meeting all the varied people that pass thru our doors, many go out... More

Traveling back to Asheville from a day in the Smokies, my wife and I had a hankering for a decent steak around the Newport exit off I-40. Sunday afternoon around 4:30, we saw their billboard and thought we'ld live large and give it a try. GPS 'd it and pulling in to the parking lot, we both looked at each... More

Was staying at fantastic intimate resort in Newport and their 5 star restaurant was closed that night. Asked the owner if he could reccomend a good steak place. He said try the Fox and Hound. We went there and it was pretty ordinary looking and you had to ring the bell at door for entrance. I looked over the menu... More
