I had no idea they had a microbrewery on site. They do have a great beer selection. I always have the dogfishehead IPA. The food is okay. The sliders are fine but nothing exciting. I've always thought the salads looked just marginal.

My boyfriend and I (We are big Eagles fans) stopped in to watch the game. I took forever to get a beer. We were going to eat but could not get a seat. To many rowdy people in there for us to enjoy ourselves so we left.

Pros: Very busy if that is a pro

Cons: Hard to get a drink

There is a microbrewery on site so there is a beer for every taste. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is just as good as the food. The staff is always friendly and it is a great place to go for dinner.

It's a shame that this is really one of the only large sports bars in Center City. I've had good and bad nights at this place. Usually the downside is as follows: We head over to watch a PHILLY TEAM game, you know, Flyers, Phillies, Sixers, or Eagles. We decide to chill in the side room with the big TV. But what's on? Some stupid college football game! Apparently people can call ahead and request a game. But come on. You're in the middle of Philadelphia and you're not going to showcase the Philly teams? This place also always seems super crowded and uncomfortable. I've only had a few decent trips to this place and it was only because the Flyers were in the playoffs so they decided to keep them on TV that day. Oh, and they do have a pretty decent beer selection.
Seriously, you'd be better off taking the subway to South Philly to Chickie's and Pete's. Now that's a REAL Philly sports bar. All Philly, all the time. And the food is better.

Pros: Beer Selection

Cons: Doesn't highlight Philly teams, crowded, average food

My friends and I used to come here for drinks/appetizers all the time. I've never gotten a real "meal" here, and now I am not sorry about it: A few months back, when I had suggested to a friend to come here, she mentioned that she had eaten a meat-based dish before and said "No way! I ate there before and got really sick." I was quick to discount her statement, until this past spring some other friends and I came here. One of my friends got the giant pretzel sandwich with lots of ham, turkey and cheese. Several hours later she called to tell me she was in the ER with a horrific case of food-borne illness. If you are coming here for just drinks and to watch sports on TV (and MAYBE a non-meat based dish), fine. If you are planning on having a meat dish I would look elsewhere, as their track record for meat handling among people I know is BAD.

Cons: bad food handling?

This is by far the worst sports bar in Philly. Clueless management. Bad food. Slow service (althouhg, I dont blame the wait staff...not their fault the whole business is clueless.) The only thing good is the location. Whenever a bar decides to play a regular season Rangers/Devils game (in October, no less), on the main TV with sound, as opposed to the biggest college football game of the year, it is painfully obvious these guys dont have a clue. Their rationale? Someone called ahead and asked if it would be on. And when they are questioned on it, a fist fight almost breaks out. From now on, I am going to call in advance and request the most asinine sporting events be viewed on the big screen. Let's see how far these idiots will go before they catch on.

The food is not good, the management is bad, and the service is bad. Overall, just a trashy place. Although, to people form Pittsburg, this probably sounds pretty appealing.

Pros: Location

Cons: Everything else you can think of

This place has all the TV, Bar , Food and sports you can handle. Great place. Do not listen to the cry baby bandwagon Eagle fans complain that their choking sports teams are not forefront.

The games that have the most fans for a team gets rewarded. Eagle fans can enjoy the game on other TV's even if it is not the biggest one in the place. Besides, the Eagles are not going anywhere ever and the fans only come out when they think they have a shot at winning.

Service is good, food is bar fare and people have FUN during the games. Maybe that is why Philadelphia sports fans may not enjoy it. People with lives go for good wholesome fun at the FOX AND HOUND and ROOT ROOT ROOT.

Pros: GREAT ATMOSPHERE - GOOD FOOD - LARGE FUN PLACE

Cons: EAGLE FANS CAN BE SEEN CRYING THAT THEIR TEAM IS NOT ON BIGGEST TV

.

The fox and the hound is a great place to watch football in general and everytime there is an eagles game played at the same time as the steelers the eagles game gets the sound. All these eagle fans want to complain and say what great fans they have but look how many steelers fans are there every week compared to eagles fans. Its no wonder steelers fans get the prefered treatment, we are spending the money. Oh, and next year it will still be a steeler bar!!!!!!! The bar has great food too!

Pros: Steelers Bar, Iron City beer, Good Food

.

With hundreds of bars in the city to watch an Eagles game it seems silly to suggest that next year the Fox and Hound will be "more of an Eagles bar than a Pittsburgh bar". The Fox and Hound is catering to where the money is coming from, and the Steeler fans are PACKING in the place every Sunday afternoon (they had to turn people away at the door during the AFC Championship Game, and sold out of 15 cases of Iron City beer before half time!). Was that 'young manager' the same manager who shared information about the bar revenue on Steeler Monday night games were FIVE times more than an Eagle Monday night game? If the Steeler fans were to leave the Fox and Hound next season you would find something to say about the bar they all ended up in too.

Pros: every NFL game, over 25 TV's, friendly wait staff

Cons: sound is weak, side TV's are small, No HDTV anywhere

.

This is an excellent sports bar. It's very large for Center City, and with 20 TVs the game you want to watch will be on at least one of them. Problem is, the place gets absolutely packed on football Sundays, with the large contingent of Steelers fans making it necessary to get there at least an hour before the start of a Steelers game in order to find a place to sit. The bartenders are nice, the waitresses are cute, and the atmosphere is fantastic, with fans of all ages and colors hooting and hollering for their favorite team.

Pros: Every game on TV, Good beer selection, Great atmosphere

Cons: GETS PACKED!, Average food, GETS PACKED!

The fox and hound was a very good place to go and watch all the games that we wan't to watch. The only problem was that they catered to the pitt crowd more then the eagles fans and I talked to a manager and the young man said next year will be different and we will be more of and eagles bar then pittsburg. The food was good for a bar and the serves was good also and they had hot women behind the bar also and that helped. I definetly would go back and eat and drink and watch sports again.

Pros: Lots of TV's, Veriaty of tap Beer, Hot women

Cons: Pittsburg crowd, Pittsburg crowd, Pittsburg crowd

We went there on a Sunday to catch all the football games...They had all the games. I dont think anywhere else in town has this. There were alot of Steelers fans. I cant believe all the Eagles fans have given up on their hometown team. Our waitress was great! There was so much energy in this place. I am a football fan and would recommend this place to everyone. They have a ton of draft beers and now they have $2.50 drafts on sundays after 10pm. My buddies and I will be there every Sunday

I went there with my fiance to watch the eagles game, and assumed it would be the feature game. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. This dump has two big screen tv's, and they both had the steelers game on! When I asked why I was given a snot nosed answer that the place is "sports bar, and they have to cater to the fans"! A sports bar - no kidding, I went there to watch the eagles!!! The food was awful. It was clear that everthing there is cooked in the microwave. The service was even worse. I hope this place gets shut down because it's just taking up valuable real estate. I will never go this sorry excuse for a sports bar ever again!

As a Philadelphia sports fan, when you go out to a sports bar in the city, you expect to watch the Philadelphia game. However, this dump makes the choice to cater to and feature Pittsburgh games. If you are a Pittsburgh fan - that is great news, but in a city as devoted to theior sports teams as Philadelphia - it is shocking and annoying. Not only did we go there to watch the Eagles game - we wore green and Eagles gear. No one in this establishment bothered to tell us that the game would not be featured in the bar. The service is lousy, the food is marginal and hit or miss, and their beer draft system - which they tout as a large selection - only works some of the time. Terrible!

Update the review of this place. It's a great place to go watch sports games and drinking with friends. I joined the mug club. you get free a beer on your birthday. however they said they always have mug club party. since i join they had it only twice and i am a member since this place open. if you want to order a side, order fries only becasue others like mashpotatoes they come in a little small sauce bowl. (very tiny portion with high price)
their appertizers are great. the services sometimes great sometimes ok. it's a good place to watch the games

The Fox and Hound has above average food and selection. Being part of a chain I did not think it would be all that great but the people working there are very friendly and will attend special requests on meals. They offer good drink specials and can be very crowded during big games so get there early for seating. I hope they survive considering the size of the place and the seeming lack of people during the week but overall I found the place to be a good value for the money and the staff makes it an enjoyable place to eat!
