We just would have liked to have seen bigger pours of wine. A 5 oz. pour seems small for such a nice place.

We both ordered Ribeye steaks, mine Medium but came out closer to medium rare if not worse. Medium is very straight foward. I tried to eat it but it was way to rare for me as it was severely undercooked. Unfortunately we had to send it back, our server was very nice, sincere and felt bad. We asked if they could put it back on the grill to get it cooked to medium. It came back, looked good on outside but as I was cutting into it you can see it really was the same like it must have been on the grill for 30 seconds. It didn't make a difference. When our server came back we explained it again. I would just take it home and re-cook in the AM w/eggs for B-fast. She offered us a piece of dessert for free. We were disappointed in that option, you would think for the price of that steak there were more appropriate options including getting my dinner comped, or our drinks comped. Or the manager or even the owner would have come over to talk to us to express there sincere disappointment, but no they didn't come over, no one stopped by at all. Maybe the server didn't tell them? But the kitchen knew.

Oh well no big deal. We have been here many times and everytime we have loved it, the ambiance, the service, and especially the food. We go there just for the steaks. We have recommend this place to all our friends and family. Always very good, just this one night it wasn't very good and not worth the money we paid. We will probably come back as stated before we really like the place, it just might not be for awhile.

Nice ambiance with excellent service and food. I can see why they were voted number one in Kane County for best steaks!

Our appetizer and dinner entrees were outstanding! I had the Cajun surf and turf which was absolutely delicious - a culinary delight! My husbands steak was cooked to perfection and cut like butter! Our server was excellent! A great dining experience!

Overall the food was good. Our waitress was wonderful and did an excellent job of anticipating our needs. We had a reservation for 7pm and when we arrived we were told we would have to wait and to get a drink at the bar. There were no seats open at the bar as it was very busy, so we decided to just stand and wait for our table to be ready. A couple that arrived after us was also waiting for a table. They did not have a reservation, but the hostess seated them before us. It was somewhat frustrating, but not a huge deal. We then decided to stand right next to the hostess stand so we would not be missed upon the next table opening. Other than the minor hiccup with our table not being ready for our reservation and being seated after those without a reservation, we did enjoy our experience. Perhaps don't accept reservations if they aren't going to be honored.

We were blown away by the quality of service, food and atmosphere! My husband has celiac disease. The staff were very aware of this condition and the gluten free me u was extensive. The owner is so kind - he stopped by our table to chat. We will definitely be visiting this restaurant again!

Very nice and friendly place for two, or a small group outing. Food was very good, and service was great. Engaging and friendly staff, and patrons as well. Live band has been pleasant and enjoyable all 3 time my wife and I have visited.

We went to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We love our once or twice a year visit to Foxfire. It's always such a treat! They knew we were there to celebrate his birthday and presented us with a card signed by everyone at the restaurant. I thought that was awesome! After our overly delicious steak and potato dinner we received a birthday dessert. Ice cream and brownies with a candle on top. So thoughtful! Last year we visited twice to celebrate his birthday and our anniversary with our 11 year old daughter and it was such a special experience for her. The owner came around and everyone treated her so sweetly. We love the atmosphere, the staff, the service and the attention they pay to us when we are there. The steaks are melt in your mouth yummy! We will always return! :-)

Very large room with a pretty loud noise level. Food was good, not great at the price points, but very good none the less. Good drinks and decent wine list, but for a neighborhood bar/restaurant it is pretty expensive.

Started off with drinks at the bar. Bar-keeps were courteous and efficient and recommend the Old Fashioned Special which was amazing.
Short wait on the table not unusual for a Saturday Night.
Nice variety on the menu with Prime rib specials.
Appetizers were fried calamari and bacon wrapped figs. Just the right size.
I had the Rib eye steak done to perfection. My guests all tried different entrees and no complaints.
Minor setback, my baked onion soup was served cold, but the waitress quickly replaced it with another.
We skipped dessert.
All in all a great night out with friends.

Went here for a belated birthday dinner with family. Our server Susan was amazing and very knowledgeable. The food was ridiculously good, I ordered the filet medallions with a side of the vanilla bourbon sweet potatoes, and it didn’t disappoint. Plus the beer list was pretty good. I will definitely return here in the future.
