Dark and divey, Fox’s Sherron Inn in South Miami delivers scrumptious cuisine and unparalleled ambiance.
Miami’s best kept secret, which celebrates its 65th anniversary this year, still plays it classic and cool with neon signs, vintage red booths, dim lighting, and an oldies jukebox. There are also two cozy dining rooms and a new outside patio.
Amazing food, drinks and service add to the retro-fun atmosphere. And the recent renovations by new owners have only enhanced its history and character.
Best known for serious drinks at good prices, Fox’s also has a reputation for to-die-for menu classics. The Fried Chicken, French Dip and Sirloin Tidbits all have claimed local fame. In fact, over the past decade, the place has racked up numerous awards for best martini, happy hour, drink specials, jukebox, and bar food.
As far as libations go, there are plenty of choices. You can order a martini to go with the best of Frank Sinatra, drown your heartache with a Sidecar cocktail while listening to Roberta Flack, or nurse a hangover with a Bloody Mary and some Patsy Cline.
Daily Happy Hour is 2-for-1 from 4 to 7 p.m., and they are now open Sundays. The walk-up window out back sells liquor, cups and ice to-go all night.
Drop in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner any time of day. Weekly lunch specials are $9.99 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., including shrimp creole, breaded pork chops, meatloaf, grilled salmon, and more. New Spring Salads are available for $8.99.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are prime rib night ($15.95) and Fridays feature a fresh fish fry made with dolphin ($12.95) and grouper ($14.95). Health fans can enjoy a calorie conscious petit filet with broccoli and garlic toast for $17.95.
This famous Miami staple is a great spot to entertain out-of-town guests, enjoy a romantic dinner for two, chill at a table for one, or have fun with a group of friends, or colleagues. You can also reserve one of the rooms for your next special event.
