Recommended by an employee of a local hotel we were expecting a special evening in an out of the way and old fashioned steak house. Entering through the bar we found a counter full of local folk all having a great time but looking at us to see if we belonged. Walking on we came to two fairly large and sparsely furnished dining rooms. The first bad sign was that the wine were ordered was not in stock, although alternatives were offered of what was claimed to be better quality wine at the same price of the wine ordered, although the alternate brands were unknown to us. Then the two of us ordered prime rib (apparently a house specialty) one medium, one rare. Second bad sign was that both were presented to the same degree of doneness. The meat was not succulent and was closer to cold than hot. The third bad sign was that getting water refills was a challenge as we were seated in the furthest corner of the room furthest away from the bar area. But the fourth and ultimate bad sign was that the wait staff were anything but friendly and personable – in fact essentially cold and unwelcoming, as if serving us was something they had to do not wanted to do. We could have spent the $95 (including a modest tip) better elsewhere and next time we are in the area that is what we will do.

There is an employee w/ TERRIBLE manners at Foxy's Southwestern Steakhouse! She is unprofessional and is in desperate need of training. She may want to consider working @ a restaurant that has pictures on the register!....She alone ruined my experience there. smh :(

If you're tired of chains where you know what your food will taste like even before you put it in your mouth, give Foxy's Southwest Steakhouse a try!
It's an old-style steakhouse out in the middle of nowhere, but attracts a local following. (It used to be called the "Way Out Inn," for obvious reasons.)
The steaks are flavorful and the wait staff is professional. They make you feel at home. Food is good and unpretentious, with a nice selection of dishes (salmon, pasta) for non-red-meat eaters.
