The salmon is the best I've had! Delicious. The chicken dishes are also very good. We love this place!

Delicious food and drink. Wish we could have ordered beer from Itasca Brewing during dinner. But still had a good beer menu.

They seated us next to the windows which was a great view. Food was excellent as usual and very reasonably priced. The waitress did take too long to bring us the check.

Servers need to be more attentive. Most groups expect to spend 60 minutes at lunch. Food is great. Servers are very nice but it takes forever to get your check.

Once finally waited on we ordered drinks and soup starter. Soup came out after drinks finished and cold. I had the French onion, wife had lobster bisque. Both were cold. Sent back. Came back out just as cold. We cancelled order and left because if the soup can’t even come out right, twice, the rest of the expensive meal we were preparing to order would more than likely not be good either. We ended up having our valentines dinner at fast food place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Fox and Turtle. We were especially impressed with our server, Jamie. She had a warm, sweet, and engaging way about her. She was focused on us as customers, and her goal was to see that we had a pleasant and satisfying experience. She hit the mark! Two at our table have had past experience as a waitress, so we feel qualified in a special way to speak highly of Jamie!

Relaxed atmosphere and food is pretty good. The service is excellent and it is always busy. But overall the food just costs too much for what you get.

Eggplant salad and chopped salad were delicious. Calamari was good as well, unfortunately service was sloowwww and our waitress albeit friendly, smelled of cigarettes. The popular Itasca chicken was a bit dry... But the desserts, flourless chocolate cake, key lime pie, and raspberry sorbet were all 5 stars

Not what we expected. Don’t be fooled by the website.....this is just a sports bar with expensive food. One would think that with the price of the food, that this would have been more upscale. And the noise level was so loud, it was difficult to hear people at your own table. Lots and lots of little kids here too....we won’t be back.

Chose Fox and Turtle because we frequently dine there and had family from California in town. We had a party of 10 and thought it would be a great experience.Needless to say it was not the experience we were hoping for. Our server was not friendly and I had to ask her twice for you 2/$13 lunch menus. Her reply was we usually don’t offer those to a party this size. She may have checked back in on us once in the hour and 30 minutes we were there. Although I left her a 20% gratuity I don’t feel she derserved it ..I think you may have to refresh some of your servers on their manners and serving techniques and it is the customer that keeps your venue in business !

Very good Thanksgiving buffet. We got there a little before 4:30p and there was still a good selection. I do recommend getting there earlier to get the best selection.

Food was excellent - a bit noisy since buffet was in pub/bar area setting , think it would have been better and quieter in a regular dinning room area. However haven't been to country club for many years so wasn't sure of their current dining set up.

Service was stellar! The food was good and nicely displayed. The only thing that was a huge turnoff to me was the extremely sticky table. It was hard to enjoy the great service and food when you feel like you are eating on a fly strip. If they address that I would definitely return

Fabulous as usual. We had a particularly great server, David, who went above and beyond!
The kids love that gelato comes with their meals and we loved that there is always something new to try. The lobster bisque was perfect on a cold day!
