    This is the second time I've dined here: once at lunch and once at dinner. Restaurant has a friendly, casual atmosphere. The service was good and we really liked most of the food: familiar with a twist. I wouldn't recommend the Caesar salad, but the Inkers (calamarie) were excellent. Although it's on a busy street, numerous close parking lots make it convenient to get to.

    We came to Aussie And The Fox for our 8 year wedding anniversary lunch after a show at the Sight and Sound Threater. The ambiance, food and service was awesome. The pear cider was great, the inkers were breaded just right, chili aoli sauce was just spicy enough and the Aussie burger with the runny egg was really good. My wife and I will definitely be coming back during dinner and late-night in the near future.

    Aussie and The Fox is one of my favorite places to take friends who come to visit. Their brunch is absolutely delicious and the sunny window seats give a great view of bustling downtown Lancaster. I visited last Saturday and everyone, even my family member with a very restricted medical diet, was able to find something they absolutely loved (oh and the coffee? SO GOOD). My only comment would be that at times the service was a bit off with long waits despite a mostly empty restaurant by the end of brunch service, but overall our waitress was very kind and helpful. Will definitely go back again, and again, and again...

    The service was extremely slow the night we dined there. Of our 4 entrées, one was fine, two were passable and the fourth was practically inedible. The meat in the dish was extremely fatty and the presentation was unappealing. The only positive thing was a good bottle of wine and a decent appetizer. We were less than impressed.

    Dinner was a night out for 2 and though the restaurant was full our table was quiet and intimate. We were greeted by the very personable host Colin. The food was one of the best we have had in Lancaster. We started with Inkers that were cooked to perfection followed by steak and salmon dishes that were absolutely delicious and ended with Affogato for dessert. If you are looking for great food, beautiful setting and a high level of service look no further than this place - you will not be disappointed. We have added the Aussie and the Fox to our restaurants to go for our clients.

    I love this restaurant's atmosphere and eclectic crowd. They also had live music. My meal of the fresh fish of the day was very good. Soup and salads were great. There were five in our group. Some were very pleased and some felt their meals were just ok. Next time I would like to sit at the bar and try some of the appetizers which sounded very appealing.

    We've been to A&tF three times and each time has been great. Their winter menu was fantastic. Third time in August didn't have as many "can't decide between" items, but probably just a personal preference. Nice beer selection; 6 rotating micro drafts and ~20 mixed bottles. My wife loves their wine list. The owner usually stops by to make sure things are going well. Really nice to see another quality eatery open downtown.

    The menu looked promising, but was disappointing. Many people seemed to be ordering sandwiches and various fried appetizers and were enjoying them immensely. We ordered some more ambitious entrees, a seafood and a meat, and were disappointed in the presentation. Too much sauce. Too much vermouth in the martinis! An unfortunate accident involving spilling and breaking things when the server arrived with our food was not handled well. Staff were slow to respond, and then only partially cleaned up the mess. Being given a card for a free dessert after we had paid the bill was a poor way to handle it, expecting us to purchase another meal in order to use the "sorry" credit.

    This was my second visit to A&F and, like the first time, I had a great time. I met some friends here for lunch, and two of them are super-picky eaters. Even they were happy with the menu selections and the food. We had a blast! Our server, Natalie, was awesome - friendly and helpful but not intrusive. She answered all the questions the picky eaters asked her with humor and helpfulness.

    First they offer drinks, and if you are into cocktails they have a nice selection of unique ones as well as a few beers on tap and about 5 wines available by glass. Appetizers are a nice mix of standard and unique but the ones I had were great. Dinner selection was also a mix of standard and unique dishes, and I went with the steak, which was fantastic. Dessert was also unique and quite satisfying. Service was quick and friendly and everything about the place seemed well thought out and organized. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, since there are many choices.

    We were a table of four and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals! The mushroom pakoras were spiced just right and the onion chutney was banging. We had the naked calamari as well, and the dish was beyond excellent. Though it was busy (it was 8:30 on a Saturday night) our servers were on point and tended to our every need. A decent variety of very reasonably priced wines and an inventive cocktail menu made the meal even better.

    Disappointed that they couldn't make the drink that was requested, then made a drink that wasn't very good instead and uncharged for it. Really?! Never had an up charge for an appletini made with half vodka half pucker at pressroom, checkers, Gibraltar, belvedere, I could go on. Tables too close together. Not much privacy for a conversation, mine as well be family style dining.

    My friend and I ate here on a Wednesday evening for a "let's catch up" date. I loved this place as soon as I walked in. The decor is so unique, and beautiful! Our waitress was super friendly and attentive, and the owner even made a stop at all the tables while we were there. Great guy! The menu isn't huge, but it was hard to decide because everything sounded amazing! We got the Crispy Cauli as an appetizer...out of this world!! Highly recommend. I got the Veggie Flatbread for my meal, and the Salted Caramel Pecan Tart for dessert, both amazing! I cannot wait to go back. Thanks for a great evening.

    Aussie and the fox staff were great. But caution to those who are gluten intolerant and not just dieting. They fry their cauliflower in the same oil as the battered items in the menu. The food was delicious though. I would recommend the cocktails. We had a long lunch indoors and loved the decor. But there were inexplicably a bunch of flies towards the end of our meal. I would go back. ... I am hopeful this was a one time dissatisfaction.

    Aussie and the Fox is a very attractive, spacious restaurant with a touch of sophistication and class. Food and service is excellent and the menu has an eclectic range of dishes to choose from. The food is beautifully presented and the portions just right for our taste. We had a very enjoyable lunch and a delightful dining experience. I am vegetarian and was grateful for the tasty choices of vegetarian and vegan food along side the varied meat dishes.. The price is reasonable and the server was attentive and discrete. We look forward to going back there. Oh, and there is parking right across the street!

    I was out with a friend and found out that he has never had calamari. Well, this was the place to try it, so he did and loved it. I've had all of their apps and they are all stunning. The Aussie Burger is so delicious with the most amazing toppings. If you'd like a similar experience for your taste buds but don't want the meat or carbs, order the A&F salad. Some of the special items that they do so well are Apple Butter, beets, and pickles as well as a Thai sauce and aioli for their amazing sweet potato fries. I've never had a bad experience here and I come here regularly!

    We had a blast at Aussie & The Fox. Unique foods and offerings - even the ice tea is different (green tea w/strawberry & rhubarb flavors). The four of us each ordered something different, and we were all satisfied with our choices. Our server was attentive without being obnoxious or intrusive. Loved the seating arrangements and the comfy chairs. Will definitely go back to Aussie & The Fox.
