The food is always above average here, but the service is always, always really bad. Just so, so slow. We were literally there when they opened yesterday (zero other tables) and it still took them a full hour+ to get our apps out. Happens every single time. Doesn't seem to be the server's fault, cant figure out why they cant get it together. We're going to stop patronizing these guys, unfortunately.

Good food, great service, just not a fan of the torches they burn outside, they’re smelly and the ashes fly all over.

Always great eats at the Fox and Falcon. I sat downstairs for the first time ever and the service was excellent as always. It was Trivia Night so outside was a party! The menu changes a few times a year which keeps the ingredients fresh. Love this place. Great stop for a meal, drink and just all around good vibes

Cute looking place. Milton, our sever was great. The food was not. Everything tasted stale. Like leftovers that has been sitting too long. The fries tasted like freezer burn, etc.

Half the restaurant (the upstairs - nicer part) was closed. All that was open is the uncomfortable and unpleasant bar area downstairs, and outdoor seating in the parking lot. We had made a reservation for indoors, but when we arrived there was no seat available either indoors or outdoors, and we were seated eventually in the bar area indoors and completely uncomfortable seats. Not even a proper table. It took 15 minutes for anyone to take our order. The staff was very nice and apologetic, and they explained that they did not have the staff to accommodate the demand. Nonetheless, they should not be taking reservations without explaining the situation to people. It is unacceptable to pay the same amount of money for a completely different experience, no dinner table, with slow and bad service.

Food was very slow to come out and not as good as we hoped. Asked for burger medium, and came out well done, but after waiting an hour didn’t want to send it back. Friend got the fish tacos and she really liked them but they came out 10 minutes after the rest our the groups meals. Wings were over seasoned and Luke warm. Also waited 20 minutes for our initial drinks which came after we were done with the apps

I was so excited to go, but the food was just ok. There wasn’t anything I was like, “I cant wait to eat that again.” And for a restaurant that wasn’t crowded, we had to ask the waiter for things more than once and work hard to get his attention.
On a positive note, there was live music playing outside. Since it’s so close to the train, it was perfect to meet friends coming in from the City.

Great beers selection, solid pub food, Nashville Chicken sandwich is great. The bar upstairs is surprisingly nice and the outdoor set up is perfect for the warm weather.

This is one of the least pleasant dining experiences I've had. Service was very weak...slow and not particularly friendly. We had to speak with the manager to address the fact that our apps had still not arrived 45 minutes after we ordered. Drinks took 20 minutes to arrive. The apps were pretty good, but the entrees were flavorless, each one of the 5 of us were unimpressed with their dinner. Will never come back.

Nice spot in South Orange. Food was good too! Loved the fish tacos. Service was spotty. Our servers kept changing and vanishing and took a long time for drinks to come.
Fish tacos, caesar salad were winners. Falafel burger and chicken sandwich less so...
Would try it again.

This was our first time eating out in a post-vaccine environment. We felt very comfortable, as the tables were spaced out, the restaurant looked very clean, and the staff were all masked and courteous. The drinks were GREAT, but the food was mediocre. We'd go here again for a happy hour, but probably not for dinner.

The service was excellent! The noise level was so high that I couldn’t hear the person across from me. There were only 4 tables. The food was inedible and expensive. Lunch for 2 which included a hamburger, salad and a cauliflower appetizer was $61! I’ll never go back.

Liked the place. Limited menu for a pub and did not have Chardonnay on the wine menu. The Italian white was pretty good tho! Chicken was very dry on grilled chicken sandwich. If you are looking for Open Table points, the restaurant did not check us in with OT and we received a nastygram from OT chastising us for missing our reservation while we were sitting in the restaurant! We got it worked out with OT who was great but it took time that I was not planning on spending!

The host was not very friendly, and despite having a reservation was going to seat us in the rain. Outdoor heaters were also not working very well, unfortunately. That said, our waiter was GREAT, the music was good, and our food and drinks were tasty.

I never had the wings before, but from now on I will order them every time! Jerk seasoning can be so hot and too hot for me. These were delicious!
