World’s best mashed sweet potatoes! Everything was delicious. Loved how cozy it felt near the fireplace in a booth. Can’t wait to come back!

Been here many times. Wife loves the french martini. She loved her filet and my prime rib was huge and so tender. Brussel sprouts are awesome. I would say stop selling ny cheesecake and sell a chicago style cheesecake. We will be back.

As much as we enjoyed the food, the poor service put a damper on our evening. We were seated and waited quite awhile for our server to appear, my husband flagged down another server who took our drink order. Our server then appeared. We ordered and got our food in a reasonable amount of time, though my daughter received her soup before the entrée, my husband received his salad with his entrée?? Very awkward service, a request for soda that was made when our appetizers came and didn't appear until the entrees came. We never saw our server again, I would had ordered another glass of wine, but she never came back to check on us. Probably the kicker was when she returned the credit card receipt to be signed, disappeared and I opened the folio only to find no pen. Knowing it would delay our departure waiting for her return. My daughter went to the reception desk to get a pen so we could pay our bill. Yes, these are all small items, but for the price of this meal, I have expectations the service will be top notch like the food. I don't know if this is a workload issue or poor training. We won't be back.

We came here for a friend’s birthday on a weeknight. We sat at a table near the cozy fireplace. Both soups were delicious. We had the Ahi tuna & stuffed whitefish. Both were outstanding! We will return soon as the food and service are always good.

Went on New Year Eve. Busy as expected, but did not expect to wait 10-15 minutes to be acknowledged by our waitress and asked if we would like to start off with a drink. Never were offered roles and when our dinner came it was missing the two sides which took another 10 minutes to get. Not sure if I would ever have gotten them had I not asked. Have eaten there many times and had a very good experiences, again must have been because they were so busy.

Both the filet mignon and ribeye (pittsburgh style) we had was good but not outstanding or memorable. The onion soup was definitely excellent as it was NOT salty and had the right amount of cheese and onion, and breading. My ribeye came with cauliflower au gratin (good) but no vegetable. My wife's filet came with mash potato (on the dry side) and again no vegetable. Rather disappointing for the kind of money I am spending. Service was good except for the water not being replenished ( blame the bus boy) for that one! Not sure if we'll be in a hurry to return at this time.

We always enjoy our meals at Foxfire. Wonderful food, especially the steaks, welcoming staff, warm atmosphere and they honor reservations. The Monday burger special is delicious and a fantastic value.

We were thrilled with the food at Foxfire and so happy that Kevin was our server. We eat regularly at the restaurant, and Kevin is by far, the best in the house. The noise level can be challenging, as well as the cold draft from the back door, but we had a fantastic time.

Just ok. Small portions for a big price. My son ordered the surf and turf and was still hungry when we left. We went on Christmas Eve for a nice quiet dinner, we were seated right by kitchen area which was loud and hectic. Lobster was not great. For the money we spent we were disappointed.

I dont know if they were understaffed, they were super busy and took a long while to get service at the bar. they didnt have the ingredients to make the drink i asked for. Later after switching to another drink they ran out of pineapple juice. So they didnt have the ingredient to make one drink then they run out of ingredient of the other drink. The lobster was very dry and overcooked. after dinner we asked for coffee and they brought a cup of hot water intead. The creme brulee was very good.

I have been to Foxfire many times, always enjoyed. This time the food was so-so, while our waitress was polite and attentive, we were there for well over 2.5 hours for a simple dinner. The food we got wasn't cooked all that well and the overall feeling for a $500 tab wasn't that positive.

Very crowded, not enough staff, I ordered a medium steak and specifically said pink all the way through. Came out brown all the way through and waitress even said she asked them to cook it that way. My husband had a filet, ordered the same way but also came out brown all the way through. I sent mine back and expected they would take both plates back so we could enjoy our meal together, but they just took mine back. My husband ate slow but, alas was finished by the time my plate arrived so I declined it.
