We've dined at the Red Fox Inn before so this wasn't our first visit. We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary because we enjoy the drive from Warrenton, know that the food is good as well as the ambiance. Quite frankly, our experience went beyond our expectations. First of all, I've been a fan favorite of their Virginia Peanut soup for years so started with a cup of that. We splurged on a four-course offering. Food divine and the portions plenty. In fact, we were stuffed by meal's end. Shrimp and grits rivaled what I had at The Pink House in Savannah, Georgia. Date/pecan salad is a meal in itself but so delicious...candied pecans, warm dates infused with goat cheese tossed gently with greens. The salmon was on a bed of zucchini noodles. Save room, if possible for dessert. I chose the bourbon pecan pie. My husband the chocolate torte. Coffee very good and we had a very pleasant white burgundy with our meal. Our veteran waiter, Brad, was knowledgeable, pleasant, sincere and made us feel very special. Thank you for a very memorable day for us! Don and Anita Sherman

My friend and I love to visit Middleburg. We were pleased to select the Red Fox Tavern/ Inn during the Take a Bite out of Loudoun Restaurant Week. As a NYer who loves fried green tomatoes, I was thrilled when I saw their menu. I was pleased to know they offered an option of a 3 or 4 course meal. 3 courses was plenty, given their generous portions. Our waiter Andrew was a total delight- professional and attentive to us throughout the meal. Dining in a restaurant that is on the Registry of Historic Places was exciting. I will happily return!

We had a fantastic evening celebrating my husband's bday. The service was top-notch and the hostess was incredibly helpful, kind and went out of her way to help us take a photo before we left. The food was delicious. My husband had the crispy duck and I had grilled pork chop. For a salad I had the goat cheese and date - a must! The goat cheese was toasted inside the date. The peanut soup is not to be missed! (which we almost did but our waiter quickly said he could bring us a cup!) and the bourbon pecan pie was decadent. A++

Wedding Anniversary Sunday brunch. I had the Shrimp & Grits, rivals any meal of this I had when stationed in Savannah, GA or anywhere else in the deep south for that matter. My wife had the Steak & Eggs, very nice indeed. Bloody Marys here are the best in the DMV. There is a secret ingredient, you just have to try it. We visit the Red Fox usually every month and it never fails. Cheers!

What a fantastic place. My wife and I, my brother and sister-n-law were staying in the area. After a little trip into DC and Grand Falls, we were looking for dinner spot. We did a search and the Red Fox just jumped out at us, especially the terrace seating. Pictures can sometimes deceive, but in this case reality was better than the pictures. The Inn and Tavern are really cool from a historical perspective and the terrace was perfect. Top that off with excellent meals all around and great service and it was one of the most enjoyable dinners the 4 of us have had.

We love the Red Fox Inn and go there as often as we can. Certainly for special occasions which was the occasion on Sunday, an anniversary. The ambiance is wonderful, food is outstanding, service is awesome - what more could a person want!! We always eat inside but there is a nice outside area as well. We always get excellent service, but when Bradley is our server, nothing is better!!

My husband and I made a day visit to Middleburg from Washington, D.C. I found the restaurant through the typical Yelp, Open Table, etc. type searches. Our expectations were blown away. First, the service is amazing. Our waiter, Brad, explained the menu, offered recommendations, told some history about the place and even gave us a sample of the peanut soup. Second, the food was amazing. We ordered the shrimp and grits and also the fig and goat cheese salad as starters; the short ribs and also the pecan crusted halibut for mains; and the vanilla crunch cake for dessert. The flavor was on point with all the dishes. The main dishes were a good portion and I even had some leftovers. Third, the atmosphere is nice for a date; its a quaint place.
