I've been to both of Leroy Fox's locations in Charlotte. The service has always been friendly and the food is certainly good comfort food. I'll continue to come for my Sunday brunch

We went to Leroy Fox on a Saturday night and were seated immediately with a reservation. It was our first time attending and we were a little taken aback by the number of kids and the noise level.

However, we have yet to find a sit-down restaurant serving good fried chicken in Charlotte so thought it would be worth the try. The food was just average. The chicken was good and moist, but the sides were not. The mashed potatoes and gravy were lukewarm, tasteless and gummy. The side salad I had was average. My husbands sweet potato tater tots were also barely warm and not crisp. Generally, if you don't have kids, not sure its worth the money...because the restaurant is not cheap!

It may have been our 6:15pm dinner slot, but the restaurant was filled with families with young kids. The wait staff did a nice job working around and over the little ones, but it was less of what I expected for a "cool neighborhood sports bar restaurant/bar".

I highly recommend Leroy Fox. We are new to the Charlotte area and recently went there for Sunday brunch. Make sure you have reservations via Open Table as this place is hopping. We had wonderful specialty Mojitos and great brunch items.

Grilled chicken dumplings were delicious. Wait staff friendly and attentive. Sat outside on patio which was a great place to just sit, relax, and chat.

Great food. Great service. Such a wonderful patio to enjoy the pleasant Fall weather. So grateful to have this restaurant in our neighborhood! Our out of town guests couldn't say enough about how much they enjoyed our brunch on the patio!

We thoroughly enjoyed Leroy Fox's food and atmosphere. Definitely try the chicken - it is not your Momma's fired chicken, and the dinner special was also tasty - a New Orleans style gumbo.
Suggest reservations. Will definitely go back on next trip to Charlotte.

First time at Leroy Fox and probably the last. First let me say that the fried chicken was outstanding and something we would do for a take out. Having said that the rest is disappointing. It is VERY loud and is basically a barroom with more tables. The waitress didn't listen (perhaps because we are in our 60s) and our drink order therefore required three or four trips. This is an active, young people establishment with emphasis on long-necks and groups. Not of us.

My mom and I were looking to try something new and stumbled upon Leroy Fox on OpenTable. We were disappointed that we had not found this place earlier! We had a great time and the Cucumber Basil Lemonade is a must try! We will be going back for my birthday next week!

We eat here often, not just because it is in the neighborhood, but because the food is always good. Service is speedy. When the weather is nice, we prefer to sit outside. The noise level inside sometimes makes it difficult to hear your dining companions' conversation. Never let's us down.

Had lunch this past Tuesday. 1/2 price wine by the glass. We enjoyed a buffalo chicken salad and a Sweet Caroline. Both we entrees were perfectly done. A wide variety of sides are also available; today was a side salad for me ( a nice change). My wife loves their Foxy Brown cocktail, one of the best choices around. Server was pleasant and efficient. A very nice lunch.

Overa ll, I thought the food was pretty good (southwest salad w/blackened chicken) and they had 1/2 price glasses of wine on Tuesdays. My friend ordered the fried zucchini which I felt lacked seasoning. Our seating area was a little messy once we were sat at the table and but overall it was an decent experience. I would say for me this restaurant falls in the middle of the pack of places to eat in CLT.

This place is pretty cool. It's trendy and has put a unique spin on some classic food selections. It can get pretty loud insice, but the outdoor patio is quiet and nice. Our service was good, not great. Overall a pretty cool place to grab food and drinks.

Just wish Leroy Fox was a bit closer to home, but worth the trip. Buffalo chicken sandwich is a favorite of my wife's . Great side choices. A salad selection diminishes the guilt. I prefer the Sweet Caroline with a side salad. All were very good. Good variety of drink selections from cocktails (Foxy Brown) to beers. Also look for daily drink specials. If you haven't already, you need to give it a try, but don't expect to have a serious conversation with your guest; really a noisy place.

Way to loud!!!! Do something about the acoustics. You can't hear what the person across the table is saying. We probably won't come back because of this. Everything else was good.

We made a reservation for 1245pm, we were not seated until 1pm. So much for making a reservation. The service was very slow. The buffalo nachos were saturated in buffalo sauce and too salty to eat. My daughter and I ordered 2 different burgers (well done and medium rare), she got my burger and I got her's. We told the waitress she took one of the burgers back and just scrapped off the dressing on top and when it returned to the table it was the same medium rare I had originally ordered. My wife ordered corn beef hash it was potatoes with hints of corn beef flavor, there was not 1 piece of beef that the human eye could see. Over $100.00 for this type of meal and customer service is not worth it.

While the food at dinner was good (especially the sweet potato tater tots), the service was terrible. After seven minutes, we had to literally go find our server. After learning who it was and request that he come take drink orders. He walked over turned his back to us and refilled the table's across from us water. That was actually the most pleasant experience with the server. We hope that this was just a one time experience.

I made reservations for 6 via Open Table for a Saturday evening meal with friends plus their 2 year old. The availability for online reservations is a major time saver.

Upon arrival we were seated right away; it was so nice that we didn't have to wait for them to set up the table. Our server was fast and friendly, keeping our waters topped off and making sure we were good with drinks and food.

Of the various foods I tried during my visit, the mac and cheese was my absolute favorite. It was creamy and delicious! I was slightly disappointed in the size of the mac and cheese side - I was jealous of the child's portion!

The atmosphere is a good combination of sports bar and family friendly, which was convenient for our friends with kids.

We love Leroy Fox, always consistent & a great neighborhood restaurant! Our server on the evening in review was not very friendly though. I cannot remember her name but she didn't seem very thrilled to be waiting tables or maybe just waiting on our table...

Food is good. Try the pretzel bite appetizer. The place is very loud. I certainly would not recommend it for a date as it's too loud to talk and there are distracting TVs in every direction.
