Went here on the Saturday and the bar was pretty full. We managed to get a table and were able to take advantage of the last ten minutes of Happy Hour. Place is built in the kind of post-modern architectural style. Not the most interesting place to look at, although there are some huge vats hanging about. Our server was a really nice girl, but she was occasionally forgetful. I donít think she knew too much about beer, but was well-versed in the menu. They had enough beers on tap for a fine selection and I was able to try 6 in one day. However, I found some of the beers to be sort of mediocre, while others were quite tasty. We got some food too. I got the black bean burger with a side of soup. While the burger was adequately sized the soup may as well have been served in a shot glass. It was good, but it was a disgustingly small portion. Beers are not too expensive and on happy hour they are two dollars off. Overall I enjoyed this place, but it wasnít perfect by any stretch.

great 1 yr old brewpub in Falls Church. great food and great beer! We had excellent service - so Iím not sure why other people are complaining about that so much. You can do a 4 / 4oz sampler of the beers you choose for $6. They had a wide range of styles on tap including a saison, ipa, wee heavy, belgian golden, tart strawberry blonde, english pale ale, etc. There are some barrels in the back corner on display aging some wee heavy (I believe). The ambience is a bit bright and wide open. Nice big bar. Got a quick tour of the brew room. And they offer a 10% discount for AHA members!

Great beer and food. The service sucks and it is on the more expensive side

A pretty solid brewpub. The food was pretty good, the beers were really solid, especially for a brewpub, and the selection was quality as well. They had like 12 or so different offerings, which is above and beyond my expectations for a brewpub. I had good service, prices were reasonable, and I enjoyed my visit. Iíd return.

Great place, and one I visit frequently. The beers are good to great, and change regularly. The food is usually very good, although it is a bit pricy.

Visited Monday May 16, 2011. Nice place, plenty of parking. Sat at the bar. Servers were not at all friendly or attentive. They seemed more interested in chatting with the regulars than anything else. I had an Orange Whip IPA. Decent beer. They were out of the Broad Street IPA. I ordered the special, Beef Stew over mashed spuds. More spuds than stew howver it tasted good. I left still hungry. Small portion, not a very good value. I might go back again if I ever come through here again but I would try a burger, pizza or sandwhich. Might leave me more satisfied. Having more friendly and teentive bar staff and decent sized portions would have increased my score termendously. Donít go out of your way to try this place.

Mad Fox is centrally located, has plenty of parking, and nice ambiance. The seating is nice and the food looks good. I was just there for the beer so Iíve left that part unrated. There was a nice selection of beers and the staff were reasonably helpful even if they didnít know what a barley wine was. Odds are you will find something you like on tap and something good to eat. Worth a stop.

This brew pub was pretty nice. Itís in a large space and has a lot of tables and bar space. The service was good and the server was knowledgeable of the beers. Overall, the beers were above average. The Snapped IPA is my favorite. The Kolsch was not that great. Most other beers that I tried fell in between. Mad Fox has a wide range of beers on tap and fills any growler. That gives them bonus points in my book.

Located in some kind of mixed use building complex. Plenty of parking in an underground garage. The place is large and features a nice large wooden bar. Fairly upscale ambience. I didnít eat, but the menu looked decent and not terribly overpriced. The beers were a bit mixed... some were excellent, but there seems to be a diacetyl problem going on here, as 3 of the 6 beers I tried had signs of that, two of them overwhelmingly. I have to echo earlier comments about the servers not mentioning beers on cask or changes to the beer menu, though the servers were nice and did go out of their way to answer questions for me. Overall they have room to improve but a nice stop and a welcome addition to the Virginia beer scene.

I stopped by here again, and I have to give the bartenders a shout out as they were awesome. Also, no diacetyl problems this time, and all the beers were good. Iíll update my score to reflect the better experience. Old score was 68.

OK... thought I had already said this but, it looks like I need to update again. One of the best breweries in the state easily. The beer is always solid, excepting my first experience, with standouts on a regular basis. The food is always excellent... a little pricy, but high quality. I always make it a point to stop by when Iím NoVa.

Mad Fox is a stylish brewpub owned by local brewing legend Bill Madden. Among the 6 taps (and 3 casks), someone is sure to find an excelllent brew. The porter is to die for. Great place with decent food - I can only vouch for the prime rib sandwich. Easily accessible and family friendly, if these are your things. To quote Ah-Nold: "Iíll be back." Since the above reveiw was posted, I have returned twice - and plan another visit tomorrow. Great place!
