Foxtown Brewing is steeped in tradition and driven by a passion for great beer. Once the Opitz Zimmerman Brewery in the mid-1800s, Foxtown is a reclamation of Mequon history. We’re not the biggest brewery around, nor the flashiest, but you’ll see that we take brewing very seriously. Every ingredient in every recipe is backed by reason. Our beer is good on purpose.

We'll definitely be back.

Like the restaurant but thought the fish fry was awful. Looks like they are pounding out cod into a rounded shaped and then double breading it. Very little fish. Fries were luke warm. Will not order again. Waitress was very nice and attentive.

Ambience was great, noise level perfect mix of energy and the ability to hear your dinner companions. Drinks were good, food was ok. We had the fish and Elk burger which were good, our companions had the pork, which was really tough and that was disappointing. Would love to try the patio with appetizers in summer.

When making reservations for dinner one would not expect to be seated in the BAR at a bar high top table for dinner without requesting it! EXTREMELY disappointed when we requested to be relocated to a DINING ROOM table for dinner and we were denied our request. Neither Manager nor hostess came to apologize and sent young rookie hostess to tell us that there were no dining room tables. Unfortunately we saw numerous tables get sat after us into the dining area after we requested to be relocated.
Get it together and don't over reserve your restaurant. 4th time there and probably will second guess returning again.

Went with 5 people total on Friday night. I made reservations ahead of time and glad I did. Service, food and ambiance were excellent. I had the Mediterranean salad, two had burgers, 1 had the Cauliflower and Pork Rinds and another had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. The waiter was very helpful picking out a beer flight for me. Everything was really good.

The kitchen here really has it going on. Well-prepared, tasty burgers, truly outstanding fries, and well-chosen beers. Even the vanilla-chai cannoli I ordered for dessert was special. The service was attentive, if a tad slow - though this could have been the fault of the kitchen. If the menu were a bit more extensive and there was bar service, I could easily become a regular here.

Good food, good beer, service was very good and the outdoor seating was fantastic. It was warm out so the heaters were not needed, but if it was colder the heaters would have been great. Can't recommend this place enough. Left with some beer to go as well that is how much I liked what I tried during dinner.
