 (Washington DC)·Dined 5 days ago

We come here pretty often, but the wait for our food was absurd (1hr) and it wasn't even busy! Our child's entree came out pretty quickly, but that was long finished before our entrees even showed up. It took 30 minutes for the kid's ice cream to come to our table and it was clear that had been forgotten about when we asked after waiting for 20 minutes. Very disappointing.

Huge place, mostly for beer. Very limited wine selection. Average food for my taste. We had a nice young guy for a server, but he seemed very inexperienced and we waited over 45 minutes for food and we had informed the waiter we were in a hurry, had a show to catch, and the place was not busy when we were there. We had to get a manager to intervene to get us our drinks and food, which the manager did very quickly. Once we got a manager involved, our experience improved. I'm not sure what our waiter's issue was - needed more training, perhaps.

Beer flight was excellent. So many flavorful choices. Great beer menu.
Wings are the best I've had in area.

Epic burger was delicious and different, but hard to eat. Kept on falling apart. Had to use a fork.

This was sixth or seventh visit by group of retired business executives who gather for lunch every quarter. Obviously it is one of our favorite venues, given our frequent visits. We can eat and renew our friendships at a convenient site.

I had made a reservation for 4. When we arrived, the hostess asked if we'd prefer a high top table or a booth. We said either would be fine. When we were seated at the high top table it was really only a table meant for three. It backed up to another table where my back (because I was the fourth person) actually kept hitting the back of the person behind me. I immediately went back to the hostess and asked that we be moved because the seating was too tight. She said we could start our meal there (due to time constraints since we were going to see a show) and she'd move us just as soon as another table opened. That never happened. I am very disappointed in the service and might find other restaurants to try in the area.

Attended their Scottish festival night; very crowded; salmon entree was dry and disappointing. Usually the food is better. I attribute the poorer quality to the crowd that night. Otherwise recommend it. Good bewpub-airy and convivial.

The food was good and the selection was what you would expect for this type of restaurant. Beer choices were great. Service was adequate but the front desk was very unorganized, so it was hard to know when you would be seated, even with a reservation.

This is the 2nd time we went and again, the food was excellent. Since it was a Friday night, it was pretty lively in the bar area, but all of the staff are super efficient and friendly and it wasn’t over crowded. The winter sangria is awesome and their pretzel appetizer is good as well - save your beer cheese for your fries with dinner! We will definitely put this on our go to eat out list of places.

Mad Fox has a good beer selection. My friend ordered wine and it was not very good. Good to stick with beer at a beer place. My beer was very good.

They seated us at a hightop by the door on a very cold night. It was ok for me as I get hot flashes (ha). If you do not, ask to be seated at a different table.

The food was good and hit the spot. Nothing to rave about.... but good.

with only a few folk in for lunch, it was easy for the very pleasant staff to serve us .
my friend/guest is a fan of micro-breweries ; he wanted to try it. said his beer (had 3 or 4) was very good but he was disappointed with his burger; likewise I really enjoyed my hard cider but the turkey burger was indifferent even with Gruyere cheese.
I would return for the drinks, not the food.

Despite living in Falls Church for four years I hadn't been to Mad Fox before now. Turns out I wasn't missing much. It took forever to get our food for our party of five and the friendly waitress readily admitted they have a problem with their ticketing system and ours was the second table of hers that night that didn't make it from the input point to execution. When our food did finally arrive, all of our meals were like warm except for my small daughter's pizza that was piping hot. Overall it didn't leave a great impression. We won't scramble to go back.

We've had plenty of great visits, but this was terrible and nothing of what I expect at Mad Fox. It was the day of Santa visiting, so I'll give some leeway in timing/service due to the crowds but this feel short of any basic expectations for service. Food was ordered and beers delivered. Our son's food came out after about a half hour maybe, which was excessive for just pita and hummus requiring next to no work other than plating. The rest of the adult entrees we were told to be "coming up soon" after 45 minutes, then again at one hour, and at 1.25 hours were told that the server had "talked to her manager". Those were the only times we saw our waitress post-ordering, and we didn't see her moving through our section with any regularity. Also by this point the area was significantly less crowded, with many open tables, so it wasn't like the dining area was still a madhouse. Finally went and told the manager (since the server was generally AWOL) at 1.5 hours after our food was ordered that things were ridiculous and that we'd pay for our beers and our kid's lunch, but otherwise to cancel our order so we could get out of there and grab something to eat elsewhere. He apologized, canceled our tab, took the blame, and wanted to follow-up later, but this was overall horrible. I expect some delay during a busy event, but to not bring any food out is ridiculous. Mind you our orders were not complicated: a burger, eggs benedict, and huevos rancheros, so nothing should have taken that long to cook once it made it to the cooks. Going to be a while before we decide to go back, especially if there appears to be any event since it seems the kitchen and waitstaff can't handle a rush. So the food is 1/5 since there's no option to leave it blank (even though we didn't get anything to eat in the end) and the same for value.

We have frequented the Falls Church location of this restaurant for years. This was the best meal we have ever had there, despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy. It was Thanksgiving Eve. I had fish tacos which were exquisitely fresh (made with Atlantic Cod). Our friend had the meatloaf and could not stop praising it. Our son had a burger and my husband had the schnitzel: both happy. We also had the amazingly inventive Thanksgiving appetizer. Homemade sweet potato tater tots, stuffing balls and more. It was delicious. Our server was great. We could tell he was busy, but he always stayed in communication, which is appreciated. We love your pizzas and often order those, but these meals were so good, it will be a tough choice next time what to order.

Stopped in for a lunch on a Saturday. Sat in the bar area, had good "energy", plenty of people, tv had football playing, so good atmosphere for a casual lunch. We ordered the Mediterranean dish for an app -- the eggplant dip was delish; the hummus just ok, as was the bread used to dip. We split a chicken salad sandwich and we were both very pleased with the taste (good flavor) and consistency (no "weird" chicken parts). Fries arrived late, but they were good and hot, which made the lateness OK. Would go back for sure!

The beer menu was a lot of fun, and I got the tasting flight -- four four-ounce pours. My husband ordered a dark and stormy, which came in a copper mug. I guess there's nothing wrong with that, it's just not typical.

My husband and I shared the chicken liver mousse as an appetizer -- you get a LOT for your money, as it was a huge amount of mousse, but was served with only four small pieces of focaccia. The server brought more bread and overcompensated by a LOT. Sadly, the liver mousse itself was bland. No worries thought, because our meals arrived before either of us had taken a second helping of it.

My husband ordered the wedge salad with a crab cake (add a crab cake for the same price as adding a piece of chicken, what??), and enjoyed it -- the bacon was nice and smokey. I ordered the fish tacos and enjoyed them, but would have preferred the fish were grilled or baked, not fried.

The outdoor area looks great, and had it been just a few degrees warmer, we might have sat outside. I'm looking forward to going back when the weather gets warm again.
