    The fried chicken is out of this world. For those tips on here saying to avoid it- they must have changed it up. Great sizes portion. So crispy!

    I had the prezels and povolone fondue and the pork belly ramen.... it was amazing! A must try.

  • Ref L.

    Place gets packed. Open table reservation let skip the line. Pretzel Fondue would've been great had cheese been more heated. For some reason the bar was holding up our drinks. Even empty. And canned.

    Coolest place to grab lunch in the area! Pretzels never disappoint. Try a smashed Irishman.

    Jay Hartwig · April 21, 2015
  • Mathew

    No brunch here which is bogus. Try the cap'n crunch French toast at other locations.

    Mathew · March 22, 2015
  • Sam W.

    Little pricy but excellent foof drinks! Great place of you want to splurge a little (;

    Great apps

    Pretzels! I think most of the appetizers are better than the entrees. Desserts are soooo good too. Great ambiance. Gets pretty loud the later in the night it gets. Love the seating and chandeliers.

    Ashley 🎀 · August 20, 2014
  • Ben H.

    Awesome and ambiance and the shaved prime rib sandwich is oh la la

    Try a shot of Chartreuse at Culinary Dropout. It's made by French monks. @CulinaryDr0p0ut #greenliqueur

    Pretzel fondue is outstanding. Not one bad dish at this restaurant.

    This place is run by criminals willing to defraud their employees. My best friend was a dishwasher there for 6+ months. They break health codes, and they refuse to pay him for his last 2+ weeks.

    I really dislike the fake waiting list

    Burrata appetizer was amazing.

    Lori Leonetti · December 7, 2013

    The fried chicken is too good to handle.

    Jacob Goldstein · November 18, 2013
  • Taylor A.

    Love this place, just like all the other Fox restaurants! Mostly for the simple menu and live acoustic music on the weekends! They have a great happy hour too!

    Taylor Alexander · November 18, 2013
  • Catherine C.

    Pretzel Fondue is a reason to come, casual, trendy atmosphere is the reason to come again. Great drink specials, & live music. Have dinner and walk to Old Town.

    Catherine Croutcher · November 17, 2013
  • Haley B.

    Live music is Fridays and Saturdays, super fun environment but it will be super LOUD then too. If you can handle the noise, order the fondue and after dinner don't miss the caramel popcorn.

    Haley Buntrock · November 16, 2013
  • Catie H.

    The Pretzel Fondue is quite amazing. I have never come here and didn't like what I ordered. The service is always great and it's a fun place to hang out.

    There's a dude named Mike that had all his friends tell him they're staying home tonight because he's embarrassing and they don't like him.

    $2 brown bag beer special is where it's at.

    Cristopher · October 24, 2013
  • Jenn

    Pretzel fondue and pork bello cubano is what is recommended here.

    Jenn · September 21, 2013

    Good vibe in the restaurant. Friendly attentive and helpful staff. Good local beers.

    Andy Brown · August 31, 2013
  • Tonia J.

    The meatloaf was as good as promised. And the house chips and onion dip just as good.

    Tonia Johnson · August 11, 2013
  • Chelsea B.

    Awesome food! The pretzel fondue is the best thing ever. A little expensive if you're on a college budget, but totally worth it! Decent happy hour specials!

    Chelsea Brogi · August 4, 2013
  • Amber T.

    Amazing food! Probably because half the menu is dedicated to alcohol, however if your vegetarian you may have to think outside the box while trying to figure out what you can eat here.

    Amber Triniere · August 3, 2013
  • Heath D.

    Don't sit outside after dark the mist sprayers leave the seats and tables bueno.

    Heath Day · July 17, 2013
  • Ricky P.

    Thirsty? Order the brown bag special. It's $1.95. It's basically cheap beer! Fun story behind the name. Drown your sorrows with the server that coined this concept. Cheers!

    Ricky Potts · July 12, 2013
  • Heather S.

    Pretzels, grilled artichoke, Italian Salad, glasses of dinner in a long time!!

    Heather Stevens · July 7, 2013
  • Kayla W.

    Get the fried chicken!!!!

    Kayla Ward · June 20, 2013
  • Libby H.

    They have great food for happy hour (bar only), but for the life of me I cannot tell the difference between who works here and who is a customer.

    Libby Hagedon · May 24, 2013
  • Jill A.

    Pretzels and fondue. Enough said.

    Jill Alice · May 24, 2013
  • Jon C.

    Maaaah! The meatloaf!!!

    Jon Cline · May 22, 2013
  • Della Z.

    Love the atmosphere of this place. They don't take reservations for small parties, but the wait goes quickly. The tomato bisque soup was amazing!

    Della Z · May 19, 2013
  • Anj

    I guess they don't like people to order on Happy Hour. Servers come late, are rude.

    Anj · May 16, 2013
  • Eric H.

    Order the Pretzel Fondue and wash them down with a beer from their impressive beer list.

    Eric Ho · May 6, 2013

    Great restaurant except the chairs are extremely uncomfortable. Too low to the table. Do better.
