Unbelievable experience! Put the Duck Wontons at the top of your list! The fantastic experience with the food was only exceeded by the outstanding service and the live music on the patio was excellent too!

We arrived for our 7:30 dinner reservation and were shown to a table on the back terrace. After waiting more than 15minutes, we were finally greeted by a server. He returned after another 10 minutes and took our drink order. My friend has dietary restrictions and inquired about gluten- and egg-free options- the server didn’t have a clue, and had to go to the kitchen to ask. Still, no drinks at this point. He returned with partial answers and responses like “uhh, I think that’s egg free?”...which did not inspire confidence. We ordered an appetizer (decent shrimp cocktail), finished our drinks and left. I expected a lot more from such a pricey and typically highly-rated place. I enjoyed a lovely dinner here several years ago with my husband and raved about it to my friends- and was terribly embarrassed by the poor service we experienced at this visit.

The Red Fox Inn is a must go to place when visiting Middleburg because of the history behind the facility. It's the only upscale restaurant in Middleburg and has a classy atmosphere. Food is delicious and the service is 5 star. We enjoyed the duck wontons and the scallops special. Price was very reasonable for the quality of food and service.

We had not dined at Red Fox for many years. We were pleasantly surprised by the food, drink and good service. The date salad was delicious and the scallops were seared perfectly. The only negative comment, which is small, is that I had made the reservation as a b-day. The hostess recognized that as I had asked for a candle to be served with dessert. No candle decorated the dessert. It was a delightful evening and we had a very nice time. We will be back. Thank you!

As always, a spectacular dinner in a small horse and wine country town we just love. Food was great tasting and well presented. Staff was attentive but not hovering. Very professional and as conversational as we desired. Red Fox is always a hit.

The food and service were excellent, and there was a lot of food given. The only concerns are its location in Middleburg (can be a drive depending on where you are) and it is somewhat pricey. It is worth it however for special occasions.

A friend and I were in town for a girl's weekend. We stumbled across the option of a 3 course bunch, and I could not have been more impressed. The service was great considering we snagged the last time spot before they closed before dinner. The prices were amazing for the quality of food we received. Oh and the food! I started with the goat cheese salad which was fresh and refreshing. My favorite thing above all was the shrimp and grits. Rich with perfectly cooked shrimp. Desserts were decadent; we'd recommend the salted caramel cake, which kept us going back for more despite being stuffed!

I would totally travel back for another bite at this place. A+

I first did Mother’s Day brunch here with my family. I was pleasantly surprised that my husband picked out such a great restaurant for mother’s Day. We do a lot of tasting menus/fancy restaurants and for the price this one fits in nicely with our routine when we want to be more laid back. The food is really great and the atmosphere feels more like a little get away. I loved it so much I brought my girlfriends out here a couple weeks later and they enjoyed it as well.

Country Inn restaurant serving outstanding food for the area.
Cream of asparagus soup and roasted beet salad and pear salad were terrific starters.
The chicken cordon bleu was too much presented with the brussel sprout leaves and pancetta and mashed potatoes. The bourbon glazed salmon over grits was exceptional.
Special desserts complimented the wonderful dinner. We will return.
