“Better choices in town”
Reviewed December 22, 2010

The service I received the last two times I've visited has been about average. Neither server went what I'd consider above and beyond. I sat near the front of the restaurant and it seemed like there was a draft coming in through the front door. This made for a very uncomfortable dining experience. My filet was very tough when I asked for it to be medium-rare. Like I said in my title, their are better choices in Geneva to choose from than going to Foxfire.

“Bloody Marys, lunch and service with a smile and a few laughs!”
Reviewed October 14, 2010

My friend and I get together once a year in Geneva for lunch and catching up; we always have a great time and this year was no exception! Our waitress was super-attentive, as was the water guy. The $4 pint-size Bloody Marys really hit the spot, as did the $6.95 beer cheese soup and tuna avocado sandwich. What a bargain, and what a pleasure!

“Very Good Place”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

I really enjoy this place. Nice atmosphere and very good food. I actually prefer their lunch menu over the dinner menu. The berry chipotle turkey sandwich and the brisket are awesome! I had the steak dinner and it was ok. I asked the hostess, when we sat down, if we could get some of the fantastic parmesan covered potato chips and she said it was for the bar customers only. Our waitress overheard the exchange and when she came for our drink order, she had a basket of chips. It was a great move on her part because little things like that make me come back to a restaurant and little things, like saying I can't get some bar chips make me stay away. I like the appetizers as well. I would recommend this place. Plenty of parking in the back.

“One of my favorite local restaurants”
Reviewed June 10, 2010

I have been here several times - both for lunch & dinner - and the food is always outstanding. We did experience some painfully slow service once around Christmas-time but they were busy, so we let it slide. Other times, the service has been fine.
