The Red Fox Inn & Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The real jewel in the crown was the service. Friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make experience memorable. One recommendation for something different would be the bread basket... savory biscuits, corn muffins, etc. with sweet spreads would give the guest the option to control the sweet factor. This is especially helpful when choosing the entreé with dessert.
It was the first time for us visiting Middleburg and stayed at the Red Fox Inn and wanted to have dinner there as well. The atmosphere was great and loved the decor. Our server, Kyle, was very attentive and easy to deal with . The person who filled the water glasses was very good as our glasses were never empty and we never had to ask for refills. Food was delicious and good portion size which surprised us. We would definitely come back again.
The Red Fox Inn has been a favorite since 1977. It never fails to impress both the dining as well as the lodging. Very impressed with the complimentary a la carte breakfast for guests at the Inn. Don't change a thing ... except bring back lunch during the week.
Tasty, traditional American menu. Standouts for me were the shrimp and grits appetizer (far tastier than expected) and a cup of Virginia peanut soup. Lamb chops were succulent, perfectly cooked, absolutely delicious. That said, the lamb's accouterments -- lumpy, too-dry mashed potatoes and under-seasoned kale/mushroom sautee -- left something to be desired on a $40+ entree.
Kyle was one of the best waitpersons we have experienced in our many years of dining out. The food was delicious and the wine recommendation was stellar: Cloudline Pinot Noir. The one minor issue was that there was sweeping up of the floor of our dining room when we were still eating. I mentioned it to the manager and she corrected immediately, as well as buying us dessert. Certainly, a way to have us recommend highly The Red Fox Inn and Tavern in the future.
Very nice colonial inn and tavern. The brunch menu had a nice range of breakfast and lunch choices, with a two or three course brunch option. Any two of appetizer, entrée and dessert or all three respectively, plus sides. Mixed drink menu, wine list and standard beverage service available.
Simply fantastic! Brittany the bartender and Jonathan the server took phenomenal care of my friends and me. Brittany even made a “custom” mojito just as I requested. I celebrated my 50th birthday at Salamander resort and had dinner at Red Fox. The crab cakes were good and the duck wings were SUPERB!!! We’ll definitely be back for another great dining experience.
The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. Interesting daily specials and delicious chocolate torte dessert. Excellent selection of wines. Historic building with much character. I would definitely recommend it for special occasions. Pricey.
My wife and I enjoyed an amazing dinner and dessert at one of our favorite restaurants, The Red Fox Tavern. Our appetizer - the twisted pretzel with dipping sauce - was great. She had the goat cheese salad with dates for dinner, and I the chicken avocado melt sandwich. Both were outstanding. For dessert, we split two choices: the carrot cake and the vanilla hazelnut crunch ice cream. They were delicious!
We all had truly tremendous meals at our gathering. Everything was beautifully prepared and beautifully presented. The Inn is a wonderful, historic place, which has been offering great food, locally-sourced for many, many years. We try to visit as often as we can, and we've never had a bad experience. In any season, the menu is fresh and inviting. I can't recommend the Red Fox Inn Tavern highly enough.
The service was less than I had hoped it would be. We were seated by a very friendly person. Three of the four water glasses were filled. It took quite a while before we saw a server. It was another 15+ minutes before we got drinks. Our order still wasn't taken. Drinks were dropped off and the server left again to wait on another table. Once our order was taken the food came in a timely manner. Drink refills were good, but weren't always done by our waiter. Once we provided payment, we waited about 10 mins before the server came back with our credit cards. Altogether we were there almost 2 hours for brunch on Sunday. Food was good. We sat outside and it was perfect. The service could have been better. We would still come back.
