WE went for lunch and were the only ones there. But service was excellent and the food was very good. I would go back again.

I was very disappointed that when we went into the restaurant with an open table reservation we were told that we would still have a wait. When I asked about the viability of my open table reservation I was told that there was many people that scheduled at the same time. Does that mean that the OpenTable reservation was not effective or does that mean that Fox fire does not honor the open table reservation as it is intended? This was very disenfranchising at the beginning of a really special evening.

Our reservation was at 6:45 and we requested a specific seating area- we weren’t seated until 7:15, in a different area. I asked if we could move as a table opened up but they forgot. It was a bummer as we wanted to be near the band for a birthday celebration but we could barely hear them. Food was good and server was OK.

Good food; service was accommodating, not exceptional-like the food. Nice atmosphere, but seating near the entry on a cold night was not nearly as comfortable as being near their fireplace. Why the seating up front? Must have has the 'sucker' look.

Wonderful birthday dinner for my sister! My son and I arrived early and they seated us and got our drinks while we waited for everyone else to arrive. They gave my sister a signed birthday card from the staff - super thoughtful. Excellent chicken, fish and steak. Great drinks and service and they brought my sister a delicious birthday treat. Would recommend Foxfire if you are having an intimate dinner (ask for a booth or the tables in back might be quieter) or fun with family and friends. Live music up front. Great place!

On a Thursday night 4 of us met at the bar for a drink. The bartender was polite and friendly. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Our server was very nice, helpful, and efficient. My blueberry salmon was outstanding.. I'd never had salmon in a sauce that included blueberry and I highly recommend this -- absolutely perfect. The other orders of chicken marsala and coconut shrimp also got very high marks. The atmosphere is very nice, comfortable, with tables in a front "terrace" section elevated one step and fronting the bar but separated with a metal fence; and the tables at back were mostly full, not too close to one another, and with a gas fireplace in the rear corner. A large free public parking lot right out the back patio (outdoor dining in the summer) entrance as well as an entrance in the front on State St./Route 38 but if you can find a parking spot there. We would come more often to Foxfire if the price was just a little bit lower. The food is delicious, server and atmosphere real good, but our share of dinner for two (including two wines each) cost exactly $100 plus tip without dessert or extra sides. It's great for business, a date, or a nice get-together (as we did) with long-time friends.

We love FoxFire. This is the best steakhouse in the Fox Valley. The food is consistently top notch. This time we had two people get the Filet, one Ribeye and one Shrimp Scampi. All cooked exactly the way we wanted. They have a new side dish menu, a couple of which we tried and enjoyed very much. This is a date night/special occasion restaurant and always delivers.

This was an excellent dinner. Our server was very personable and had very good suggestions and input when we had questions. The food was outstanding. I was there for my birthday, the entire staff signed a card and had it on the table when I arrived. I would definitely go back for a fine meal.

The steaks, Caesar salad, and wine were excellent. The lobster and grilled asparagus were okay. The stuffed baked potato was poor (How do you good up a baked potato?). The ambience is fun and happening. I will go back, but try some different veggies.

Our party was large so we were put in a separate room and we appreciated that as it would have been difficult to hear each other at the table elsewhere. Our server was very attentive and she kept our separate checks request straight for 5 couples. She was great! Just feel the prices here are a bit too high to come back here often. Food was delicious but just a bit too expensive. My husband got the chicken and ribs combo. He said the ribs were great but the chicken less than desirable. My seafood risotto dish which was a special was fantastic!

Always a wonderful dining experience. We all (5) had steaks. My 14 year old had the 26oz Porterhouse and devoured it! The Prime Rib and filets were perfectly cooked. The mushroom side dish was great and the sweet potatoes dish tasted a bit like pumpkin, but was a vanilla and bourbon dish. The night was made better by Jim D’s musical talent. He is so talented! We went for a birthday dinner (turning 15 requires a big steak!) , and three of us stayed to hear the rest of Jim’s set. We were there from 5:45 til 10:00! It was great to see a crowded restaurant. Perfect spot for a date night or celebration. It is pricy (but worth it).

We've been driving by for years, and finally stopped in. Wow, that was a great idea. We had a wonderful salad and appetizer. Both of our main courses were prepared perfectly and delicious. Our server took care of us just perfectly.
Probable become one of our main, go to places, now.

Prompt seating by hostess. Waitress came quickly to take drink orders. Returned with beverages and took our order. Although one entree seemed a bit complicated to prepare, our meals arrived in a reasonable amount of time.

Well our server was new, did not know much. I would expect they would train someone probably
during lunch - our meal was close to $200.00 for 2 people I would expect very good service. The
antipasto board of meats and cheeses was very cold and not pleasurable to eat. Should have been served
at room temperature. I ordered surf and turf , the steak was excellent but the lobster tail was over cooked and tiny (something you would get at Outback Steakhouse). For $48.00 you should be served
a respectable size tail cooked right?

From the charcuterie board appetizer, to the fabulous filet mignon, to the creative brussels sprouts side dish, to the sinful dessert - it was wonderful. Service was excellent. Food was most memorable.

Was a bit busy when we arrived, so seating was later than the reservation. There was a little room at the bar for a drink, and was seated about 20 minutes late. That was the worst part, everything from the food to the service was excellent. The owner came over a few times to make sure we were ok, and even bought dessert because he understood our wait was excessive.
Definitely recommend as a great date spot in St. Chuck!
