Food cold when arrived did not have time to send back; poor service

Mad Fox is a good bet when you have kids along - the kids' menu has a good selection and everything comes with ice cream. I wish they would bring back the fried chicken they used to have around 2014 - that was the best thing on their menu.

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.

We went for a family get together on a week night. We enjoyed the food and no problems with service. Great place for a gathering

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.

Food and beer were pretty good. Even with a reservation we still had to wait almost 20 minutes. Several other reservations were waiting too.

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.

We had a huge party and the service was amazing from beginning to end. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially our waiter Chase, who went above and beyond to make our lunch fun, relaxing and delightful. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back!

Comfortable “gastropub” atmosphere and suitable for friendly get-together or family gatherings. Great beer selections, tasty appetizers, and something-for-everyone main entree offerings. Efficient and pleasant service, menu specials, and Trivia Night with easy parking out back. We will return.
