“Try the Shrimp Dejonge Appetizer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We had a great dining experience at FoxFire. Starting with a wonderful take on Shrimp Dejonge (included a little bacon, what's not to like), a tender filet crusted with blue cheese, peppercorn filet bites, all nicely presented and very tasty. We did have one dish that was below par. The crab cakes were 99% filler, very little crab.

The service was top notch, almost to the point of feeling like they were pushing to turn the table even though the place was 1/2 full. The finishing touch was the owner coming by the table to ask how everything was.

On departure noticed that they had a small band entertaining on the outside deck. A little bit of something for everyone.

“Great Service and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Good wine, Tuna, atmosphere and service. We didn't like the Baby Back ribs; the sauce was not very good. Filet was ordered medium rare and arrived to table well done......no red or pink. It was sent back and new filet was medium but tasty.

“Off The Hook.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This place was killing it. Best food in a restaurant I have had in a long time. I would come back just for the service it was top notch. Great menus selection the food was excellent if I lived in the area I would be a regular customer. I will be seeing the again on my neat trip.

If you don't eat here when you are in town you have truly miss out.

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Good locally owned restaurant. Quality food, good gluten-free menu. I know, from talking with staff, the owner takes the time to ensure the staff know about the wines they serve and there is always a variety of interesting reds and whites. Service is friendly and efficient and venue is pleasant, with a patio out back for warmer times.

We found the food, service and atmosphere to be well above average. They have a wonderful burger special on Monday’s and fresh seafood dinners along with Prime rib for dinner.
