Foxtown Brewing is steeped in tradition and driven by a passion for great beer. Once the Opitz Zimmerman Brewery in the mid-1800s, Foxtown is a reclamation of Mequon history. We’re not the biggest brewery around, nor the flashiest, but you’ll see that we take brewing very seriously. Every ingredient in every recipe is backed by reason. Our beer is good on purpose.

    First visit - not impressed. Online menu is different from actual menu; server couldn’t answer any questions - each time had to go ask the kitchen. Fish fry and salmon/jasmine rice were salty to the point of being inedible - told server who just said sorry; no offer of replacement or taking it off the bill.

    We have gotten carry out from Foxtown a few times, but this was our first time dining in. Both the hostess and our server were great. However, we were there on a Friday evening and were unaware that they close at 9PM! We had closed out our tab and not holding up a table for other diners. Suddenly, the manager came out and told us that we needed to leave because the cleaning team needed to get started. We apologized and started to leave immediately. When we came in from the porch area where we were seated, the manager AGAIN called out to us that they close at 9PM in a very rude tone. We responded with "thank you" and left. We totally understand that restaurants are stressed, but closing at 9PM on a Friday night seems odd and a manager being that rude is unacceptable. Unfortunately, for Foxtown, the food isn't good enough to tolerate this kind of treatment.

    We had a reservation. The hostesses were very unhelpful; first sending us to the outdoor kiosk who sent us back inside; they couldn't seem to understand that 3 adults and 1 child would be our reservation for 4 people. Our server was very efficient and friendly. The food (fish fry) was just ok. Fish was warm but not crisp, fries were cool and not flavorful, "slaw" was just shredded red cabbage and rye bread was very stale. We won't be in a hurry to return, not for fish fry anyhow.

    We took out some friends for my husbands birthday. After making a reservation ahead of time it took 25 minutes for a hostess to bring us water and this was after asking the hostess to send someone to our table. We were excited to bring friends because previously we have had great food and service. After the hostess brought us water we waited another 15 minutes for a server to attend us and that was after asking for service from 2 other servers. Once we ordered the food came out in a timely fashion. Most of the meals were fair and my husband said his walnut salad was amazing. However the shrimp tacos were disappointing. They had an excessive amount of mayonnaise on top of them which was unappealing both for looks and taste. After our meal we had to continue to seek service for the table to be cleared and order additional drinks. Overall it was embarrassing bringing friends for such poor service. I doubt they will return. I understand that service is challenging during this time, however that is why I made a reservation.

    Foxtown brew pub is a fun place to meet friends…Friday fish fry is very good…they do not have a liquor license, so be prepared to have wine or beer. The outdoor wrap around screened porch is a nice place to eat, even if the road noise is a bit strong at times. Excellent service and very friendly staff.

    Understand that I'm not much of a beer drinker. But Foxtown serves more than beer. We were able to secure an outdoor table under the screened and covered patio, which worked out quite well on this, the hottest most humid day of the year to date. Had the bluegill po' boy and brewery brussels. Both were good and acceptable pub food. Really, no complaints, though I can't review the beer selections.

    It was great. I work with human trafficking survivors and folks that don’t always get a fair shake. It was delightful to see the joy and commitment of the young lady that showed us to our table. Our server was attentive and very pleasant. The food was hot when it arrived and absolutely delicious. The cheese curds were great. I would definitely return and recommend this place to others.

    Very cool interior of this restaurant. Food and drinks were great. Service was weak. They need to provide education for the young servers on what they need to do to deliver a great customer experience. It’s more than just taking an order and delivering the check to the table.

    We ate outside in front of the restaurant and it was absolutely delightful. Our server was delightful and she was very efficient. The food was very good 2 of us ordered the apple and walnut salad. It was good but could have used a little more dressing to make it even better. We all look forward to returning to Foxtown Brewing in the near future.

    Order put in wrong by wait staff. Got sandwich late and charge taken off bill. That was appreciated. Bluegill sandwich not good. Heavily breaded and dry. Burgers and pulled pork average at best. Pricey for quality of food. Beer choices excellent. This is our third time and we will not return.

    It was a pleasant experience meeting with friends for a Friday Nigh Fish Fry. There was live music on the patio which was packed and a nice crowd inside the restaurant as well. It was busy but the food was quite good. Most of the group ordered the Fish Fry There was one of us who ordered th Shrimp Tacos and she said they were excellent. There are only two dessert options, so we chose the Root Beer Float. Okay it is a real Brewery so there were several options on tap for your choosing. I saw other diners trying the Beer Flight which gave them a selection of brews to try. It was a good night out with friends and I’m looking forward to next time

    Y’all were out of sweet potato fries! Like how does that even happen! They’re literally the superior fry! Also, my date had to get steak with her salad because y’all were out of chicken! But I’m still stuck on the sweet potato fries! The guy working there with the pony tail deserves a raise! He heard me over talking about the weather and when he returned from outside I was given a personalized weather report for the remainder of my meal!

    Beer selection was great. Waiter was outstanding, and bantering back and forth with him added a lot of fun to the meal. Would not eat on the covered porch again, as the traffic noise from Mequon Road was too much. We will be back.

    Great food. However my portion was a little small. Had the elk burger which was very good. However it was not much bigger than the kid’s menu hamburger. Other than that we had a great time and the beer is outstanding. We will be back.
