This place is ok. Until recently, it was the last refuge of the smokers in town, making it the smokiest joint around. Most of the staff seems more interested in jamming drinks down peoples' throats than serving food or otherwise taking care of their customers. Our favorite server Bryan is gone, so I'm left with the rest of the freshly turned-over staff, seems to happen every 6 months or so. The food is ok, inconsistent at best. I hate having to figure out if its a good or a bad night to eat by having to know who is cooking. Best options are the sandwiches, its hard to screw up a club. Some of the other items seem pretentious for a pool hall to offer, know what your audience is. Guess the place is better than Action or Family Billiards, they don't serve food.
It is just nice to have a pool hall-type bar in Winchester. A place where people can smoke, play pool, listen to live music, and have a decent drink. Our waitress was really cool, and let us know that now Blue Fox is staying open till 4 am to serve food and breakfast to those who may be too tipsy to drive home after the bar area closes at 2 am. That is smart business, in my opinion, and is considerate of the safety of others on the road. Their food isn't the greatest, but it isn't bad either. Drinks are mixed well.
This place isn't as bad as everyone makes it out. We've been here several times and the place is the nicest place to play pool in Winchester. Brian was our server the last two times we were there and he is great, always making a joke or two and conversing with us. The food is pretty good for being a pool hall, although specials sometimes are little too often chicken. While pool time can be a little high, there are still really nice tables that are well taken care of. Our biggest complaint is the smoking. Although it is still legal, it can get a little overwhelming at times.
