My name was at the top of the list with the other reservations at the bottom, guess I got bumped. No baseball caps or jeans or sandals. Isn't that illegal in Florida? The food was good, but not worth the prices they charge. Don't ever eat dinner here — The Fox what can I say that? It now has a chance to survive. Crowded and overpriced — First, please take note there is a cover charge at the door to eat here. All of the booths were open but had reservations signs on them. I can't say enough good things about The Fox.
The food is just okay, nothing to write home about. Other reviewers should need a reality check - age and divorce is not an indicator of anything! The ambience was very nice, but the service was poor, and the management very trashy. With that said, why would I ever support and encourage any of the above by leaving my money there? We also pay referral fees! The Fox Jazz Club — I spent my 38th anniversary at the Fox Jazz Club and it was terrific. The entire atmosphere was good as this was a Jazz bar. He yelled at his staff in front of the customers and acted very unproffesional, touching ect.
But as more people lit up, and purchased cigarettes from the bartender, it became apparent that this is a common practice. You are billed for everything in small amounts,. What we found was food that was poorly cooked with little or no presentation and not as described in the menu. There were five in our group and we ended up being seated at a small table hardly big enough to seat four. The manager and assistant manager came to our table to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Yes I will probably go back but it will never be for dinner.
The hostesses are polite and very helpful. Never again will I visit, and I will suggest to all of my friends that they avoid the place like the plague. Service was okay at best but for the prices they are charging the food was below average. Do not ask the price of anything. You may go on Brown Paper tickets and purchase your tickets in advance!!! A diamond hidden in the Westshore rough.
But now with the old owner out and the new owners trying to regain credibility of a nice jazz bar or club for all. I don't even think this place deserves 1 star on here. And it's so out of the way you might not. The wait staff are self proclaimed ditz's. The whole experience felt really sleazy, I felt like they had their hands in our pockets the entire night. It's difficult to find this sort of atmosphere in new suburban cities.
Dress code is strictly enforced. And they also want you to start a tab even if you are just there for dinner. . The chairs where extremely low to the ground and had to actually get up and walk around to stretch my legs. If you decide to visit this club I would recommend eating elsewhere and then arriving here for the band, to dance and to relax.
It help it's own against some of the more well known upscale steak places such as Charley's and Bern's. It has a very classy atmosphere, perfect for a date, after work drinks, or dinner. The food was not like it was described in the menu. Some of the food served was good although my order, the pork chops were dry and overcooked. The best thing about the place, and the only thing I enjoyed was the music, although it was too loud if you wanted to talk to anyone. Add in the ambiance of the lighting and the decor and it was an evening to remember.
Where It's At The only problem with the place is finding it. You order and pay dearly for top-shelf liquor and they deliver booze that came from the well! Two of my friends do not drink alcohol. Always a good mix and excellent crowd. Your choices are very limited as the menu is limited. Being new in town, we decided to check it out and found our new favorite place. Went with high expectations that were quickly deflated when we not only had to pay a cover, but were required to order at least two overpriced beverages. Loving parents Sam and Susie Holcombe.
