My wife and I came here for an early dinner on our date night. The staff are all very friendly and attentive, and the restaurant itself is well-decorated and clean, with a large bar and a beautiful ceiling. Our order was taken and delivered promptly, and I have to say, the bleu-cheese encrusted New York Strip steak I had was... More

Great steaks; had the surf and turf with small steak and lobster - lobster just ok. Salad was not so impressive. Nice desserts. Nice atmosphere. Easy location.

Enjoyed Foxfire for a business dinner and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Located right off the strip through town, the restaurant offered a quiet place to enjoy conversation and great food.

Started off with App's of Prime Rib egg rolls and bacon wrapped dates. Both were just okay. Split a lunch item with my husband, the cajun ribeye sandwich. Again, okay, but very very thin for $19.00. Disappointed with flavor. Might try again for dinner, maybe if you could eat outside.

There is live music on some weekends. Parking is ample and easy. Great place for couples or families. The staff are really good and very professional. Would definitely... More

Quality of the food was very good, service was excellent, but we just felt that the prices were too high. We have been here before and felt the same way, but thought we would give it another try. It is ala carte, so you may get a vegetable or a "starch" with your dinner, but soup, salad, and sides are... More

Our food was amazing! It is on the expensive side. Kids milks are not free refills and the kids chicken breast with broccoli was $12. My husband and I got the prime rib, which was mouth watering. We also got the baked mac n cheese which happened to be the best I have ever tasted. Our waitress wasn't the most... More
