The usual bar food, but good and priced like other restaurants. Reservation on open table worked without incident.

Friendly staff and good service. No hurry to clear us out after we finished. We enjoyed our dinner, dessert, and watched the game.

It was convenient when looking for a guaranteed reservation, the food wasn't spectacular, but if you were there for drinks (51 beers on tap) then it might not matter. The service was not bad.

Place was dirty...under our booth trash; waitress was pleasant but didn’t know much about beer; never asked if we wanted another beer or dessert; just handed us the bill. Food was ok, like Carolina ale house much better for a spirts bar

When we arrived they asked if we wanted standard or highboy seats. We said standard and were told they only had highboy. Why even ask then? They asked if we wanted the back room or bar seating. There was a live singer and the bar was pretty loud so we said back room. They said they was for a private party. Again, why even ask?!? We had to change tables because the first was really really unstable. As expected, the bar was really loud and it was difficult to have a conversation. We ordered crispy Brussels as an app. They were ok, but a bit over done. Hubby ordered the featured Mac and cheese burger, medium, which looked amazing in pictures with lots of creamy Mac and cheese on top. He got a well done, grey crumbly burger with dried out pasta on top that might have looked at cheese once upon a time. We both had fries that were way over cooked. The waitress asked how everything was so we told her. She spoke to the kitchen manager and came back with a coupon for a free app next time. We explained we’re from out of town. She offered nothing so I asked to apply the coupon this time, which they did. Overall, not a place we’d go back to. Everything was over cooked. Unfortunately we had a similar issue of overcooked burgers at another restaurant on the same trip (poor luck for us!!). That restaurant was genuinely apologetic, and comped both meals. Completely unnecessary and unexpected but definitely great customer service. We’d go back there again, given the chance, but we would not go back to Fox and Hound when there are so many other great places to eat.

The food was decent and we enjoyed the sports bar atmosphere. However, the service was terrible! Our server failed to refill our waters or check in during our meal to see if we needed anything. We’d understand if the place was busy, but it was a quiet night and this lack of service made it difficult for us to truly enjoy our experience.

Our table for 8 was given to another party. I received confirmation text the day before asking to confirm the reservation which I did. They eventually found a place for us out in the overflow part of the restaurant.

I left a lengthy review on Yelp after our visit. I'll try to summarize that here. We greeted the hostess (she did not greet us) and were told the manager did not want to accept our reservation that we had made here on OpenTable but they were going to seat us anyway like it was some sort of favor. We were finally shown to a table that hadn't been bussed. It took 45 minutes to receive water. We placed a beer flight and appetizer order and received neither. They were out of multiple beer choices. The waitress also didn't know which beers could be chosen for a flight. We never got to place an entree order. We finally left. Tables around us stayed dirty for our entire stay. I received a response on Yelp from upper management saying they wanted to make it right. I responded to the email address and that person wasn't the one that read or responded to my review. I had to repeat everything to them. I'm still waiting on some sort of response. There seems to be a lack of professionalism running deep through this restaurant.

Only one cook was working! We had a reservation for 8 people. It was a birthday celebration for me and my grandson. My son, grandson and his friend had to leave before their food arrived to get to a movie across the street! We had waited for an hour. My food was dry and overcooked. Our waitress was nice but the manager was reluctant to reduce the charges, but he did.

Well, it is a sports bar so the noise should be expected. Service was good but a little slow. It is in our local neighborhood so we will dine here again.

Typical sports bar but I liked there was a schedule by the host stand of what was going to be playing so there wouldn't be people asking to change channels.

The kettle chips were good (would've been better had they been hot, or even warm, but they were cold). Didn't care for the fried brussels sprouts - too much reduction on the balsamic vinegar making it too sweet. My husband liked his burger and his friend enjoyed the Philly Cheesesteak. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Staff is very nice.

Food was INCREDIBLE, drinks were awesome, our server was so attentive and sweet. Literally the only qualm was that we were at a bar height table but we didn’t ask for something else. Overall awesome experience and would highly recommend for a casual date or a night out to watch the game/hang with friends.

Made a reservation online early but upon arrival was seated very close to the bar at a narrow high top table. Although I asked upon arrival for a table due to physical problems I was told none were available for my size party.
