Located next to the Mall at Fairfield Commons. The place is divided into a few different sections, one being a dining area, which seems to be the quietist part, another is like a sports bar with multiple tv's and the bar, and a third which has pool and karaoke. We sat in the bar area, which is a plus if you are a sports fan. My main complaint is that they play music on top of everything, and it seems a bit loud.

Our server was pretty fast, and paid attention to us. She had a good knowledge about thier beers, and beer in general. That was a plus, but I don't expect that every server there is like this. Selection was a bit better than average. Among notibles on tap were Arrogant Bastard, Great Lakes Eliot Ness and Christmas Ale, Bell's Brown and 2 Hearted, Lagunitas IPA, and Founders Dirty Bastard. The bottle list is about 30 or so, with Lindeman's Framboizen, New Holland Dragon's Milk, and Bell's Third Coast Old Ale being the most interesting. Beware of some of the prices, a Lindeman's was $9.

Food was good, decent selection of pub food, sandwiches, etc. Prices were comparable to the area. Not a bad place to stop at, especially if out by the mall and looking for a good beer.

I was in Dayton on business and looking for dinner after long day of travel. Tried the Fox and Hound based on the BA reviews and a look at their online food menu. I sat at the bar because there was a wait for tables. The crowd was due to their $2 Tuesday special. All drafts were $2 all night (with exception of a few beers from Toxic for some reason). This meant it was crowded with college students drinking Blue Moon, but the bar wait-staff were still attentive to me. The food was tasty, service was above average, the sports bar vibe was comfortable. The beers selection was ok, with about half of the 14 taps being local/regional brews and half BMC. The beers I had were served well and good quality. I'd come back if I'm here again--especially on $2 Tuesday!

Rotating selection of draft beers. Sometimes a few craft selections, including heavier and seasonally appropriate beers. This one is within walking distance to my house so that's a plus. Pretty standard bar food. Gets a lot of college and military traffic.

One of the better places in Beavercreek to get quality beer!

My wife and I visited the Fox and Hound for the first time a few months ago and were very impressed. They boast 32 tap handles, which include at least 20 microbrew varieties. The prices were more than fair with a good variety from burgers and sandwiches to pizza and wings. Quality of the food and the service have been quite good. The few times we have visited the establishment now we have had a very little wait to be seated and the service had been fantastic.

On top of the good food and service they offer $2 Tuesdays where all pints are $2, and a frequent customer card which can provide the patron with discounts on food and drink.

The atmosphere is much like a sports bar with TV's on every wall, where you can watch your favorite sports or the current special events.

All in all a great place to have a brew and watch the game!

Typical Americanized English restaurant. Fairly well lit, lots of booths with big screens scattered around the walls. Went once for a MMA viewing and the volume was impossibly loud.
Great service, they seem to know about the beers on tap. Nice selection of Stone, Lagunitas, Bell's; around 5 or 6 craft beers along with the regular BMCs. I wish they had a few more handles of craft beer but at least they have a few.
Food is pretty good, a nice good variety and pretty well made. Reasonable prices and a decent choice of beers make it a reliable stop.

This place is a chain located next to Fairfield Commons mall and about a mile from Wright State University. As others have stated, the music or tv volume (whichever is playing) is typically too loud and overbearing. The place usually has a decent crowd and gets very crowded for big games. The menu has a few unique offerings, but overall isn't very special. There are a ton of taps here, but only about 4 or 5 that I would consider "quality" selections. Be careful of the beer lists at the tables as they aren't always accurate, nor is the wait staff. The real highlight to this place is their $2.00 draft special every Tuesday. It's offered on ALL drafts and is probably the best deal I've encountered. Paying $2. for a Bells two hearted, Lagunitus brown sugga, or Stone IPA makes me very happy. It's a fun place to stop for a beer with all their tvs, and pool tables.

Stopped in for some lunch today, and the food was decent. I was really stunned though to find such a good selection of beers.

Starting off with the food. Was your typical pub style food. The prices were average, everything hovering around the ten dollar range. Take for granted this was lunch now. The service was good but there was only a handfull of customers. I did question the staff on a couple of beers and no one could answer. As a matter of fact I questioned one beer ( Dragon's Milk Ale ) that I had never had. No one knew anything about it and they wanted me to tell them about it when I was done.

The beer selection was wonderfull for this area. They had I believe it was 37 beer on tap and around 40 more in bottles. It was nice to start my meal off with a Arrogant Bastard Ale on tap. They also carried Stones IPA as well on tap. There was probably 12-15 craft brews on tap. Which, once again, is very good for this area. I finished my meal off with a Dragon's Milk Ale ( New Holland Brewing Company ) from the bottle. This was a nice find except for the ten dollar price tag that came along with it. All in all, A nice establishment. I do like a bottle of beer to be cheaper than my meal, but the selection will bring me back.

Went here twice during vacation back to the old homestead. David and were surprised to see this place up near the mall, and of course with a name like that, we were like: yeah let's see if they have any handpumps. Well, anyway, this is part of a chain, it's huge, and there are no handpumps. But it was still a fun place for us to visit. We were there first on a Monday afternoon, and there were maybe 10 people in the place. We sat at the bar, and the friendly bartender had us in samples in like 2 seconds of sitting down. We enjoyed some Bell's (the winter wit and 2 hearted), plus noticed they had other brews like Old Dominion Oak barrel stout and a Great Lakes offering on tap. Other interesting brews on draft were Molson Canadian, Shiner Bock, and Heineken (hey, I've never seen them on draft before). They offer 15 and 23 oz. drafts, and also have a mug club. They offer about 30+ bottles as well, with more Bells, and a new one that was proudly shown, Gulden Draak. Not a destination selection, but certainly a selection that can appeal to beer geeks, and the less geeky when out. Went a second time, the Thursday night before St Paddys day, plus NCAA action, so the place was busy. We sat at a table in the non-smoking section (smoking is not-prohibited, and even encouraged. The great room that has the bar actually has a humidor, and they sell cigars). Food was chain restaurant not-great, although I liked the chips and salsa. We did end up at the bar again. The place was still packed, but we enjoyed a few more brews. The staff was friendly, and I enjoyed watching the manager talk to a few of them, indicating which patrons had been there too long, and maybe needed to be cut off...don't worry, they weren't talking about us! ;-)
