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.

Very nice restaurant and brewery. The food is excellent. They've paired down the menu since I was last there, but still a good variety. The beer is always good. Service is nice. the building if clean and in a good area. Nice place!

Great place to have a few good beers for happy hour! They do have some quality beers, the hummus appetizer is very tasty and the Mad Fox burger was phenomenal!

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!
