They Closed – This is a cool little place to hang out. I go there ever so often, and the food is good, atmosphere is fun, but its a little pricey. It is always a good time for my friends and I. I tried going there this past weekend, and just for everyone that doesn't know, they closed down. It sucks, I know!!!
Awesome, chill bar – Fox and Hounds is one of my favorite local hangouts. I live right around the corner, so it's very convenient to get to. The food is amazing (I've never had anything I didn't like) and the atmosphere is so inviting. I used to frequent it a least 2-3 times a week (it's been closed for renovations recently) for dinner or drinks and have never had a bad time. The service is always friendly and knowledgeable; I don't know what barguy33 is talking about.
The staff there is always nice. I've gotten to know some of them so when I come in they come over to the table and know what drink I'm having. Not many places in Atlanta do that. And what's the big deal about not having Bud Light in a bottle? A lot of places don't have it. Get over it. Bud Light is not the king of beers.
The prices are the same as most of your other Atlanta bars that serve import beers, $5.50 - $6.00 for a pint. It's not a college bar where you can get a $2 crappy beer, but you can sample a wide variety of international and high gravity beers. They also know how to pour strong liquor drinks, which always makes me happy.
I recommend Fox & Hounds if you are looking for some place where you can sit and chat with friends, enjoy a great pub-style meal, or you want to play pool or darts. It is a very laidback place, but I've seen plenty of people get pretty crazy there!
Great locals bar – I was constantly searching for a bar to rival Cheers where everyone knows my name and I can grab a beer amongst friends. The Fox & Hounds is it. True, they don't have Bud Light in a bottle, but that's because they're an English Pub. They don't even have Ranch Dressing in the kitchen, but they have PBR in 16 oz cans...I think i more than makes up for it! I'm not looking for your run-of-the mill dive bar (Mr C's is right down the street for that). This is a great place to try some beers you have never heard of (try the Otter Head in a bottle) or quench your thirst with one of your old favorites (they know the RIGHT way to pour a Guinness and always have plenty of Jager bombs!)
They changed their entire menu recently and I'm still trying to find something on it that I DON'T like. Even the Fish & Chips has been upgraded. I see a lot of new faces behind the bar and on the floor, but I've never had anything but a pleasant experience with the entire staff.
I recommend Sundays or Mondays for a first visit. Sundays they have a special pint on tap for $1 and $1 Fish Tacos. Mondays, all their food is half priced. Some of the pints can run higher than you're used to, but they serve 20 oz glasses instead of your usual 16. I've found I end up spending about the same here as I do anywhere else....and I don't have to go to the bar for a new drink nearly as often. I suggest you check this place out if you're looking for someplace to call "home."
Better Win the Lottery to Afford This Place – Im new to the whole collier hills area, and i was looking for a nice local hang out, which i thought i had found in the fox and hounds. the place looked like a traditional pub when i walked in, adorned with beer and liquor decor. The bartender was a friendly guy and helped me to try a nice bitter, wells bombardier. when i went to pay he informed me that the beer was 6.25 for a pint!!! How stupid are the people running this place?? They may as well just charge a million dollars for a beer and then close for the rest of the year when someone buys one. All of the beers on draft are about 6 dollars, save bud light. I didnt eat food cause the menu was lacking as well as overpriced. Im not sure who owns this place, but they need to get out some to see what is actually going on in other places, rather than arbitrarily picking numbers that are way too high for the products
1st review didn't deter us, thankfully! – We just came home from the Fox/Hounds and are curious how the 1st reviewer had such a bad time. Our time there was fun and, at times, outrageous. The decor is Trad. English pub-style sorta like I recall during my semester in London. I spoke with a bartender and he informed me that this john guy had left and a new energy was flowing through the restaurant. The draughts have been changed and it shows. Locals and hard-to-find English brews are on tap. We enjoyed the Victory beer(rec'd by a regular) and 420(never my fave, but Gal's fave.) Staff seemed to be on top of everyyhing on a decent night. No food tonight, but I might consider lunch there. BTW, the music was up, but not too loud. Don't know where the reviewer thought they were. A cafateria? Altogether, a great night! We'll return for a weekend visit. I always see cars on the street when we drive by.
Some of the Worst Customer Service in Atlanta – The customer service is perhaps some of the worst I ever experienced. My girlfriend and I were trying to talk and found it difficult because the music was turned up pretty loud.
Now I like loud music quite a bit but we were here for to enjoy an after work drink with one another and this music was up so loud we were unable to hear each another. I expect really loud music from a nightclub or even a good honky-tonk, but not from an English Pub in the early evening. When we asked "can we please have the music turned down" we were introduced to the manager.
So when the manager, John, came over, we explained our difficulty hearing one another and asked again "can we please have the music turned down a little" the manager simply said one word, "No." When I asked John why, he said people pay to play songs in the jukebox and want to hear them. I was astounded. I didn't ask him to turn off the music, just down a little. I guess he didn't understand people pay for drinks too and would like to drink them while talking with others.
Would you treat your customers like this? Would you like to be treated like this? Certainly not. This manager is unqualified and it filters down to the staff. I recommend you stay away from Fox & Hounds, at least until they hire new management.
BTW, when I told the manager we were leaving he wanted to charge us for our two full drinks. You won't be seeing me at Fox & Hounds.
OK but Poor Customer Service – An "OK" place but pretty bad customer service when I went. Good darts and pool area. Good drinks but pricier than a lot of places. The bartender was good but the servers at the tables just had poor attitudes. Probably would not return for this reason.
A little pricey and a lot inconsiderate. – The atmosphere is great and the drinks, though a little over-priced, are strong. The problem is how rude the staff gets when they want you to leave. I was with a very large group that had spent quite a lot of cash only to be treated very rudely when closing time came around... about an hour before bars close in the area.
Pints and pool rule at this cozy Buckhead pub. – The Scene
Located on the outskirts of Buckhead, Fox and Hounds draws crowds with its down-to-earth pub atmosphere. Spacious outdoor seating, with wooden tables and benches, becomes a home away from home in the warmer months. Inside is a cross between a classic English pub and a hunting lodge. Dim, smoky lighting, '70s-era carpeting, a jukebox and a fireplace surround an inviting bar complete with stuffed foxes and mounted deer heads for decoration. A modest-sized game room houses pool tables and darts.
Comforting pub fare hits the spot. Order up pints of hearty ale, fish-and-chips, bangers and mash, and vinegar and salt chips. Fancier selections include a surprisingly tasty tuna nicoise, with fresh, tender slices of perfectly pink tuna. Whisky drinkers will be impressed by an exceptional scotch list. Beware: prices tend to be higher than the pub norm.
makes happy hour happy! – Fox and Hounds is the best place to go for happy hour. Free appetizers for every three people help offset the somewhat pricey beers. But where else can you get a Paulaner that's a foot tall? Staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed, perfect after a long, hard week.
