we have had dinner here several times and we have always enjoyed the food. tonight not so much. we were seated quickly, took a look at the menu, and waited for our server, and waited, and waited. finally she came took our drink order, then we waited, and waited and waited again. drinks came food order was taken. we ordered a blooming onion app,that was on their specials ( for 10.95). when it was put down in front of us, it looked terrible. it was small, looked to be cut in big chunks, it was over cooked on the outside, and hard as a rock and cold on the inside. uneatable!!!!!( i have had blooming onions before and the are made from a large vidalia onion, cut to open like a flower, )
the waitress did say so sorry and asked if we wanted another app, as she is now serving our salads ( took that long for her to come back to our table) we said no thanks, salads were ok, then the meal. i got the fish and chips and were very oily, 2 small pieces of fish, and a few fries and a spoonful of slaw for 16 dollars. my husband had the chicken parm and said that the chicken was ok, the pasta not so good and didn't eat it.
the waitress never asked if we needed anything else to drink, not even filling our water . when we were done, the waitress said the the kitchen said there was something wrong with the onion and that's why it came out that way. LOL!!!!!!!!!!! really!!!!!! blame the onion!!!!!!! she then told us that they made us another one ( dinner is over ) would we like it, no we told her, and she said do you want to take it home. omg!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!
she gave us the check and said she took off the onion. ( like i was going to pay for it anyway?)
so have to say that will be the last time we eat there!!!!!

The Gold Fox is a blend of being an historic inn with old wood, stone, low ceilings, and small interconnected rooms, along with some areas built more recently. We were there for a meal for those of us who'd attended a nearby funeral so some of my comments come by way of the family holding the funeral, who dealt with the Gold Fox staff. In short: quality, creative food, and a wonderful staff that was flexible in helping the out-of-town family arrange the meal long-distance, so that when the services were over, everything was ready.

The family members told me that it was hard, especially from a distance, to find a place that had private rooms, especially small ones that would hold about 12 people. They had made several calls to area restaurants, noting that those in New Paltz had a real attitude about holding such an event; guess it wasn't "up" enough, eh?, so they were told "We don't make reservations." And several had only big rooms and charged hundreds of dollars for the space. So the flexible attitude of the people at the Gold Fox was amazing to them. That alone set the right tone. And no room fee for the charming, historical little room we used.

The family had selected 2-3 trays of wraps and small sandwiches. They told me there were so many types to pick from that they had a hard time choosing. They picked a BLT type wrap, a chicken salad-walnut-cranberry wrap, Asian veggie wrap and meatball panini for the kitchen to make up several of each. The flavors were fresh and phenomenal.

The Gold Fox, at least at that time in May, did not offer potato salad or macaroni salad, but instead served various green salads that were fabulous. They served pitchers of lemonade and iced tea. They chose tiramisu and a torte for the dessert choices, to go with coffee and tea, and they were both scrumptious.

Our server was attentive without being intrusive. We had her turn on the overhead fan when it got a bit stuffy with the humidity, and she was gracious in making sure we were comfortable.

There's a separate bar area, and they seem to specialize in martinis. There's a big menu of many other items.

On behalf of the family, I would say TRY this place if only to support a decent business that knows how to take care of a hurting, out of town family by just being EXCELLENT at what they do! I can't wait to be in the area again and see what else I can try off the Gold Fox menu.

The "Fox" is a fairly convivial local pub, with multiple TV screens showing whatever sports are on, a number of regulars who are friendly enough and a decent though unexceptional selection of beers.

The restaurant is average in quality, with outdated decor that looks tired. I have never seen it very busy. Hoever, if you want simple food, such as burgers, at a decent price with decent quality, the Fox is a good bet. The wait staff is freindly and attentive and the experience is pleasant. There is one thing to look for while there - the owner's homemade deserts, such as his pumpkin pie or cheesecake. There were incredibly good!

We had beef brisket with mushroom sauce. Meal was very tasty. Everything was served in a respectable time frame. Decor was warm. Waitress was very nice as well as knowledgeable.

I would certainly recommend it.
