I've been to Mad Fox at least twice a month since it opened last year, and I have certainly become a fan of Bill's beers.
The atmosphere is quite nice. Fairly upscale for a brewpub, but everything is pretty low-key. I've never sat in the dining area away from the bar, instead picking tables or booths around the bar with groups or just sitting at the bar when it is only my wife and me. The service started pretty hit or miss from the waitstaff, though it has gotten progressively better. The service at the bar has always been quite good.
The quality is quite high. Really nice assortment of menu items and I've liked all that I've had to date. The beer list is generally pretty expansive. There seem to always be at least 8-10 beers on tap with a new one every week or two. Quite a few hand pumps, and they normally have several different offerings. Also, as every brewpub should, Mad Fox offers samples of any of their beers.
Overall, a great place to have nearby. I've also really enjoyed most of the beers that Bill has put on, and I've enjoyed the recent trend toward hoppier offerings.

I live close by and am very glad of that fact as Mad Fox has some of the best beers that I have had and does not sell them in bottles. Having such a top notch microbrewery practically in my back yard is one thing, but the food and overall restaurant atmosphere are excellent as well. My experience with them started as one or two friends and I coming for half price growler fills on Tuesday nights, but quickly become that of an excellent place to bring the whole family, and is rapidly becoming a "go-to" place at that. Altogether this is the perfect local pub/restaurant and a great place to go if you like good food, good beer, and the occasional bit of live sports all within a conveniently located city center area that is very easy to get to.

We stopped here for lunch after we toured Washington's home in Mt. Vernon. We loved this place, it was easy to find in downtown Falls Church, had free parking, and was very upscale, clean, pub decor but simple and well done. Service was fantastic, our server was Katie and she was delightful. Friendly, generous with her time and extremely helpful. She also knew a lot about the beer and admitted she loved beer. Our feeling was she loved her job. I've never given a five before for anything and Katie gets a five. Beer selection was excellent, they had five beers on cask, hubby had the Broadstreet IPA and son had the English summer Ale. They reported both were very good. Food was excellent, I had the Reuben and it was yummy, hubby had the special pizza and found it to be wonderful and son had the fried chicken and said it was delicious. it looked fantastic. Beers and food were a little pricy but it is near the big city so expected.
