    I requested in my online reservation to have the priate room due to this being a business lunch. I made the reservation for 11:30. They did not seat us in that room. THere were 9 of us and we were cramped. In addiditon, it was exremely cold so we requested to be moved outside. It was nice at first but then it really began to warm up which made it a little uncomfortable. I also purchased a to go order and when I received my check, I was charged 18% gratuity for my entire order includig the carry out meal

    Dined last Sunday for brunch. Noise level was way too loud could not hear anyone at our table. Food was poor; my mates had mentioned the place was really good for dinner so thought we would try brunch; bad decision. Almond Chicken Salad was overdressed, chicken salad sandwich was dry, and breakfast casserole was disgusting off putting flavor from the gravy. We ordered pimento cheese appetizer and zucchini fries which were really good but the entree's were bad. The waitress kept dissappearing for long periods of time as well!! DO NOT GO HERE FOR BRUNCH!!

    The food was good but not spectacular. The worst part was that after we had finished eating it took them 45 minutes before a waiter came to clear our plates or ask how we were doing. At that point we didn't even have time for the desserts I had heard about. Real bummer.

    Great neighborhood spot-nice outdoor area, bar is usually busy later in the evening. Food is consistently good; service usually very nice. Biggest complaint overall is that it is so loud after about 7 most nights that it can be a real obstacle to enjoying dinner with a group. We go occasionally and have learned our favorites - great wings, southwest chopped salad, in fact, all the salads, steak sandwich, zucchini fries, burger and of course, fried chicken.

    This was our first time at Leroy Fox. We had an overseas visitor that wanted to have fried chicken. The chicken was good but there was little on the menu that we could find to lighten the meal and certainly no fresh veggies. Wait staff was a bit AWOL during our meal and twice refilled our unsweet tea with sweet before we moved our glasses away from the edge of the table.

    Had a black bean burger with asparagus. Accidentally received sweet potato tater tots, which were liked across the table. My friends really enjoyed the soft pretzel appetizer, which came with 3 dipping options.

    very loud for brunch, good food, good service, handled large party fine, but if you want a party of 10 to hear each other you probably need to be outside or in a private room.

    I've just recently moved to Charlotte and have eaten at Leroy Fox three times now. Each time the food has been excellent and the service has been awesome. I have a lot of family and friends visiting me on the weekends and I always want to take them to Leroy Fox.

    First time at Leroy's. Loved it! Will definitely be a regular. Chicken and waffles were awesome, especially when paired with a mimosa. Great Sunday brunch

    This is a noisy restaurant. Many are, but this seems worse than most. I enjoy the fried zucchini and had tried the chicken fried chicken with some satisfaction previously. This time I was looking forward to juicy fried chicken. Unfortunately mine was dry and stringy. Very disappointing. The best thing on my plate was the cornbread muffin which, while also dry, was improved by the honey butter.

    My husband and I went for dinner - we were seated in a booth that was so wide that we couldn't hold hands across the table if we tried, and it was so noisy that we couldn't hold a conversation. Service was slow, and overall experience not great this time around.

    Leroy Fox has such a great brunch selection! From their famous chicken and waffles down to creating your own omelet, they have really nailed the southern-contemporary feel! I ordered the chicken and waffles for myself, and I must say the chicken paired with the spiced peach compote was out of this world! Our server was very friendly, prompt, and informative about the menu. Oh and did I mention the Bloody Marys?! Leroy Fox is a great Sunday spot!
