Friends planned an evening outing, but our first restaurant of choice was closed. Someone suggested The Ox. Glad they did! Great food and atmosphere. Only exceeded by the wonderful hospitality and service.

While visiting friends in Oxford, MI we planned to enjoy a restaurant that was closed on Monday. Someone suggested The Ox. Glad they did. Great food and drink. Charming atmosphere. All exceeded by the hospitality of the friendliest staff.

The ribs were delicious! We invited friends to dine with us and weren't disappointed with the meal. Our waitress (Cassidy) was less than thrilled to be at work that day. This is the first time we have had mediocre service at the Oxford Tap.
