No wait for a table with my reservation, good selection of beers and varied menu. Only "downside" was that it was very noisy but this was not unexpected as it was game night. Server was very pleasant and did not "hover" or rush us in placing our order.

I had the Chicken Sandwich, which comes with brie & basil pesto. It was juicy and delicious! Perfect lunch with a side of sweet potato fries. My only gripe is that the prices are a bit steep for a pub lunch... my lunch was 17.95+ tax & tip for just a sandwich and fries.

Great! Accommodating with our request for a birthday celebration. Our spot to go to before any game (Raptors or Leafs). Never had a complaint!

Excellent service... awesome atmosphere! PERFECT spot. We recommend to everyone.

Grabbed a bite before the hockey game. Service was good and there is a great selection of beers. Four of us and 2 were okay with their meal (burger-fish and chips) 2 not too impressed..(tacos/nachos). Overall a good rating and a great location to the ACC

They have a 3-5PM happy hour special where certain draught beers are $4.25. Pretty hard deal to beat!

We are regulars at the Fox. They have great happy hour specials for beer, and the food is quite good. My favourites are the nacho stack and the pulled pork poutine. The wings are also pretty good!

Was undecided over a few menu items, waitress made recommendation and did not steer us wrong. The nacho plate was a 3 layer affair with chicken and pulled pork, it was soooo good! Had the turkey pot pie for main dish, it too was delicious! Great location downtown, a short walk from many sports and entertainment venues.

I usually get the nacho stack because it is absolutely delicious, and quite unique. But it costs $18 now, and just seems too pricy for nachos (even fancy nachos!).

This time we shared poutine and spinach dip. The poutine is flavourful, but the fries are thick, which aren't my thing. The spinach dip was mediocre. A little too thick; not creamy enough, and the melted cheese on top was more noticeable than the dip. It only comes. With pitas... I love when restaurants givea blend of pita and tortilla chips.

I took my daughter and her friend for a quick bit before the show at ACC. The location couldn't have been any better. The service was quick and real friendly I felt like a regular at my local but never been there before.

The wife and I made it in time for happy hour so we had cheap beer and people watched for an hour before dinner.
Good food, good service. Whenever we stay at The Westin we'll be having a afternoon beer at the Fox.

We were looking for a place with the family our last night Visiting Toronto. One person wanted a steak, another one a margarita, and everybody wanted something delicious. The Fox delivered. Our waitress was excellent; accurate, prompt, and personable. It Was a bonus to be able to sample poutine with the family. One of the pluses was the opportunity to have basic burgers for some, mussels and other gourmet delights for others.

We have been there to watch sports and the accommodate turning the volume up at the smaller room and changing the channels to watch the hockey games we want to. Food is really good for a pub! :)

We had a great time on the patio being entertained by Catherine (she made our day).
Great selection of beers on tap (innis and gunn was my fav). Food came out quickly and was delicious. Start with the Natchos, you won't be disappointed.

Some friends and I went to The Fox for a Leafs playoff game. It was like going to see the game at grandmas which isn't what you expect (or want) in a pub. The food was dry, service was good, but overall the place just lacks energy or heart.

Their patio has many different people walking by, spent a couple of hours enjoying really good craft beer and tasty food.
Rachel treated us very well, she's got a wonderful sense of humor.

Went with some friends for drinks/late dinner as we had heard good things. The atmosphere is fun and staff welcoming. We ate in the sideroom, which feels like a cozy but classy living room of a good friend. The server was attentive, friendly and offered good suggestions. Our party indulged in beer, spirits and wine and were impressed by all the drinks. The apps and mains were really yummy and great value for your money (especially in that neighbourhood) We shared three apps. The riblets and pork sliders were delicious and really meaty, the spinach and cheese dip was awesome. Everyone except me had the fish tacos as an entree and were really happy. My poutine was amazing, best I've had outside of Quebec City! We'll be returning for sure!

Menu was changed recently. Turkey burger without cranberry goat cheese from now, if needed ask it for extra $. Well, OK, but I couldn't get it for my money either as they had ran out of it. Too bad.
