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.

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!
