We were served our food but had no utensils. Seems pretty basic. Otherwise the food was good.

better food than beer surprisingly
The service here was really great. Our waiter was very friendly, informative, and checked up on us frequently which was great. The food was SO good but very filling after a beer or two. The only thing I was disappointed in was their brewed beer. I came here for the beer not the food but the food ended up being incredibly good and the beer not so much. I sampled everything they had to offer and wasn't happy with anything to where i wanted a full glass of it but I did get the American Pale Ale and ended up only drinking a quarter of it. This place is really nice though, I'd def come back for the food and maybe their bottled beers instead.

Hiding in plan site
I would diffinitly go here again. The service was prompt but not over bearing. The beer was good with a verity, I will have to go back to try more. Atmosphere was enjoyable and weather permitting outside dinning available. Overall it was a great find!

Hand made = high quality food
This is some of the best food in the area. When you take the time to make your own breads, ketchups, ground meats, and make it taste good, then you are way beyond your competitors. There are no competitors for Mad Fox in the area. Simply amazing food all the time. The key to their success...consistency.

Very good neighborhood dining
Mad Fox is a very good restaurant with an excellent brewery. We really enjoyed the team-oriented service--we were never left sitting on our hands. Wings are excellent (but pricey), frickles excellent, pretzel is ok (better at Cap City or Glory Days). Excellent IPA went well with an outstanding burger, well-cooked burger with a tasty bun. This is a fun place that is worth a visit.

Is there such a thing as a family bar? This is it. We had Mothers Day brunch here and the restaurant was filled with well-behaved children and their happy grown UPS.

the pizzas are amazing, the wings are super crispy, and well everything is good
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is exceptional and ALL hand made from scratch. That goes a long way in my book.

The service can be a little slow here, but the food and beer are always great.

BEST BEER IN DMV
They are brewing great beers at Mad Fox!, hopefully the food and (especially) the service will catch up...

what better excuse than brunch at Mad fox? great vegetable breakfast pizza and banana bread french toast.

First Time Bruncher
I have been to Mad Fox many times, but this was my first visit for brunch. Well worth it. I had the breakfast pizza. Yummy! Both of the other diners I was with had the steak and eggs. It received rave reviews especially for the pungent blue cheese!

A Falls Church Gem!
If you are looking for a neighborhood gem with a variety of dishes and great beer - look no more -- Mad Fox fits the bill. Dine here at least twice a month. Yummy burgers and appetizers. Love the flight of beers.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We go here fairly regularly and have ever since their opening. The new chef, Andrew Dixon continues to improve the menu save for one thing. What is so hard about making a chocolate cake something chocolate for dessert. I have tried anything I would eat for dessert such as the runny caramel pudding and am not impressed in the least. They would do so well as to hire a pastry chef. I have heard others say this, too.
Now for the positive; I adored my inferno burger which was the special Wednesday night. Best burger I have had there. I still say they have the best onion rings in Northern VA and tried to tomato soup for the first time. It was zesty and delicious.

Great for Happy Hour
Mad Fox Brewing Co. was great to go to after work for Happy Hour. The ambience was energetic and they had a great selection of beers. I would come here again with friends.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food + Good Beer = Great time!
My wife and I visited Mad Fox on a Saturday night and were very happy we did. The food was excellent, from the warm soft pretzel appetizer and house salad, to the Tuna special and Meat Loaf Mignon. The meals were well seasoned, excellently presented, and portioned just right. The food also paired extremely well with the selection of in-house beers (the Saison was especially good), and even a nice selection of wines by the glass. We will definitely return.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
what can say about Mad Fox that likely hasn't already been said? The food was delicious, caramelized onion jam with blue cheese on a burger?? Yes please! The beer is absolutely spot on, and served at the right temperature rather than cold and fizzy like so many places. Service was excellent, knowledgeable about the beer they were serving, informed about the food, this is very much my kind of place.

Decent gastro pub
Mad Fox is part of a small Town Center concept--U-shaped cluster of buildings with shops on the lower levels. I arrived from the north on Rt. 7 and almost missed it since the side of the "U" they're in faces south. There is free parking in a garage onsite. Plan to arrive early since you may need to park several levels underground. The service was great! The Maitre d' was accommodating for extra guests, and the waiter was wonderful--prompt, accurate and unobtrusive. The food was good. My steak salad was cooked to temperature and the frickles were nicely drained. The fried cheesecake was a batter bomb, but the flavor was good. "Gastro pubs" are everywhere now, so the novelty is gone. However, Mad Fox does a nice job with this concept.

Good neighborhood casual place
I have been to Mad Fox twice now, both times for dinner. Food was better on the first visit and those who had beer said it was excellent. The Asian wings, BBQ sandwich, and Mac and cheese were winners. I would suggest not being in a hurry to get in and out. Service was a bit slow, but not an issue if you aren't on a schedule. Great option to not have to go over to Clarendon or Courthouse on the weekend, where the wait can be long for dinner.

Great Salmon Salad
Met a buddy there last week and we were looking for light meals. They had a great salmon salad that hit the spot. New place, good neighborhood. I will go back.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, poor service
We have been here several times and enjoy the food. The service was so disappointing though. Very slow. Meal was half over before we got our wine. Waiter was very pleasant, like all of them there, but seemed to forget we were there.

It's All About The Beer
Mad Fox is a great place, primarily for the craft beers they brew. The menu is limited, but generally good. Prices are reasonable, unless you go with the expensive "specials." Waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable, but the wait for food to come out is a bit on the long side, even on those rare occasions when they are not busy. Still, the place is comfortable and the beers are so good that waiting for the food is not a burden.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were happy to find a good local, non chain restaurant , with an interesting and delicious menu, and good beer! - We will definitely go back!

Great Beer, Good Food
House brews were excellent and the food was good. I'll definitely be back!

It may seem odd to label a
It may seem odd to label a brew pub "fit for foodies," yet this one merits the appellation if any does. There are interesting additions/twists that stand out from the "typical" menu of such places, such as bitterballen (try them!) or the outstanding kale salad, and there is evident care in the kitchen for the quality of every dish, the freshness of ingredients, and everything (I think) made on the premises - even the mustard is Mad Fox's own special formula. Servers are proud of these special touches and will tell you about them.
Wide selection of brews; which changes constantly (so try the option of ordering a taste of six different ones). If you're not a beer person, the wine list is good too. This was our third visit; we'll go back.

Brunch is great here!
This was our second Sunday brunch in less than a month. Took the grandkids for a big family brunch. Everyone loved it.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, good beer, good time
Sat outside to enjoy the uncommonly cool and dry August evening. It also allows us to take our little (well-behaved) dog...there are always other diners eating/ drinking outside with their dogs and not once have I witnessed any probkems with overly rambunctious pets (I can't say the same for the way some parents allow their kids to act, but that's another whole issue). Service was prompt. I enjoyed the crispy fried chicken while my wiffe went for a pasta dish. Both were generous portions and tasty. I always enjoy their Kolsch and wife gets an overpriced chardonnay. Still, we enjoy Mad Fox and will surely go again.

Great for families
My son picked "the fox restaurant" for his 4th birthday dinner. Great for kids and adults! Food, beer, and the kids menu are great. The staff is always friendly and knowledgable. Highly recommend! Definitely get a growler to take some beer home with you and I love the Fig and Balsamic Blues pizza!

Great Food, Great Beer, Great Times
I've been going to Mad Fox for several years now and I am never disappointed. This restaurant LOOKS and FEELS upscale but at modest prices. The staff and servers are attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Not only is it a great brew pub, but it also is a family friendly and genuinely warm location for unwinding and relaxing after a long workday. Bring your friends and family along (they have a kids menu) and be prepared to enjoy casual dining in an elegant atmosphere!I
Noise is generally not a problem at family hour, but yes, the pub can get loud if there are groups, special events, or a late night crowd having a good time. Nothing too rowdy -- patrons seem to genuinely enjoy and respect the 'neighborly feel' of this place.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Some of the best beer and food!
We went as a group, first time visitors, and had a delightful drinking and eating experience. The menu is innovative and quite varied. Pizza's are out of this world delicious. Try the samplers and find a beer that you want to have a full glass of. Service was superb! They made a Swiss-style birthday treat for our friend from Switzerland who shared her birthday with us.

Mad for Mad Fox!
First time for the BF and me. Great neighborhood find. Beers recommended by the server were excellent. Though tempted by the terrific Restaurant Week deal, we were in the mood for the burgers, particularly the bacon jam burger that had been noted in the Post's Weekend section. It was fantastic (the bleu cheese was not overwehlming) as was the Mad Fox Burger ordered by my BF. Both were cooked to perfected medium rare as we requested. Onion rings were great - crispy with tasty dipping sauce; fries, meh! Would definitely return for casual, inexpensive dining. Big bar area with TVs to watch your favorite game on the other side of the quiter dining area.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb English-Style Brewery
The food is excellent but the beer is exemplary, as is the service. Mad Fox has managed to nail an English bitters both in the cask and on tap. Indeed, they have done such an outstanding job with their bitters that when I closed my eyes I could have sworn I was enjoying a pint at a favorite public house in Maida Vale, London. The only difference was the food and service -- Mad Fox excels in both categories. Their menu is foodie worthy and their service is attentive yet unobtrusive. Also setting them apart is the quality of their APA and IPA. Their Broad Street IPA is the best IPA in the DC area. All in all, a superb experience at the Mad Fox from the beer to the food to the service. My wife and I will be returning!

Mad Fox Brewery
We love Mad Fox! Excellent beers, eclectic food. The burger with bacon jam is fantastic. We've been there as a couple, with our baby, and with a group and had a great time with each experience.

I love the food and the service here. Makes some great home brew beer and enjoy every minute of it.

From frickles to chicken dishes, served very nicely. Food tasted great and our server was on top of our needs.

New Menu adds a lot
Mad Fox has a new menu that now compliments their numerous beer offerings. (Although they only off one white wine). The menu satisfied the "foodie" in our five consumers.
A special shout out to the "MOB" pizza. I ordered a small and took two slices home. They were even more delicious the next day.
Wait service was good. There were a few things that had to be asked for: ketchup for a burger, steak knife for a steak, a drink refill. If these things had not taken place I would have given the service "5 stars".
Ajacent parking garage makes parking easy. I would assume that parking would be tough on a busy friday or saturday night.
The beer choices were "great" and the waiter very knowledgable of the various brews. Daily specials!
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really Good Pub Grub
Food was very good at the neighborhood brew pub. Burger was excellent and they had a number of specials that were interesting. We tried the pizza special as an appetizer and it was fresh and flavorful. Brews were good too, particularly the cask selection. Bar was packed for a Friday night and weather was perfect for outside dinning.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
My girlfriend suggested this restaurant so we thought we'd try it on a whim. Can't say enough of how much we enjoyed it! The service was great, the in house beer was amazing, and the Bacon Jam Burger was THE best burger I've ever had! Highly recommended!! Definitely revisiting this place!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time at MFBC was worth writing about! The decor is very simple, but good for a micro brew and neighborhood bar feel. The food....chicken livers, black bean burger, meatloaf, and butternut squash cannelloni....was all very very good! And the Punkinator beer was out of this world, too bad it has to be a seasonal brew!!! We will definitely be back to. MFBC in the very near future!!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another top-notch experience!
I've been to Mad Fox many times, but the most recent experience was the best so far. Our server was knew the menus top to bottom and was able to answer our questions and offer suggestions based on what we were looking for. The food and service were outstanding, once again!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great beer and bar food
They brew their own beer and the samples are outstanding. Service is very good, pizza is some of the best, and recommended spot to hang out in Falls Church.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Finally made it to Mad Fox. Great kids menu, takes reservations, generous seating space, and hip decor. Friendly, prompt service. Clearly lots of regulars. Fried pickles were awesome. Bacon wrapped meatloaf tasty and generous portion. Burger requested medium well served medium/medium rare. Beers tasty and good varieties - imperial Russian stout my favorite of the night.
Oh, and easy free parking. Will definitely return and add as an alternative to Dogfish Head Alehouse and Ramparts in Alexandria.

Mad Fox Brewery is a must-go!
This was my second visit to MFB, and I'm already looking forward to my third. The beer is fantastic (beer menu is extensive, obviously) - try the beer flight! The food? Top notch...both visits, it was high quality, served at the right temperature, delicious, fresh ingredients, presented beautifully. Kudos to the chef and his staff. Service was a bit slow (but tolerably so), but it was a very busy evening (happy hour and a corporate event). I will definitely be going back; this place is great!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food; fantastic beer
The brandied wee heavy stout was not only the most unusual beer I have ever had; it was one of the best. The bacon jam burger was also very good. The place was noisy but we could hear each other easily.
