This is one of the best brewpubs in NOVA.

The place is very open and separated between reserved tables and the general bar/ seating area. The general seating and tables near the bar can turn over quickly. The place is slightly loud but always upbeat. There are only two medium sized muted TVs in the bar showing a game. The servers and bar tenders are quick to greet you and pretty knowledgable about the beer and food.

The food is above average for what you will find in the area. I recommend the pizza and the standard menu. The fare is mainly traditional pub food with a sizable gastro pub selection. Think roasted pork belly with molasses glaze & chicken and waffles rencarnation exctra.

The beer is the best part of the place. The traditional tap list is pretty traditonal in style being split between British & American styles. Expect a few hopped selection, rotating taps, and casks. My experience is that everyone can find something.

Words to the Wise
I disagree with a few of the reviews that note the lack of parking. There is a free garage in the same building group that I haven't had an issue with and even during the peak Friday hours.

If you want a table, call ahead or get on open table to save yourself a spot - you will be glad you did.

It's a bit of a cross-town drive from southern Alexandria to western Falls Church -- a half-hour to 45 minutes in rush hour traffic -- but well worth the trek. Orange Whip is one of the reasons. I'm not all that knowledgeable about beers -- I'm a lot more familiar with single malt Scots whisky - but could gladly drink Orange Whip all night long. And that's just one of the many great brews at Mad Fox. The beers are outstanding, and the food is generally out of this world. In the four years since it opened, Mad Fox Brewing has become the place we visit most often. I don't see that changing anytime soon!

Went here while on Vacation, and I'm so glad i did. Great food paired with equally great Beer. The waitstaff was friendly and more then happy to answer my questions about the beers and Casks.

Friendly staff, good food, and great beers. They also have half price growler fills on Tuesdays. Hard to beat that.

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.
