Fox Sports Grill
Fox Sports Grill is a big hit with the men. With big-screen TVs for sports fans, a separate dining area and activities aplenty from billiards to a bowling alley. Apart from this there's live DJ music on weekends, where it gets pretty crowded with the young crowd hanging out. It's great to watch a game, get loud, sip on a few beers and generally make some noise. The food is contemporary American and quite good though a bit pricey.
FOX Sports Grill Review: I lile the FOX Sports Grill, and I think it is one of the best sports grills, I've ate in. I ordered the burger with cheddar cheese and bacon. The burger was good, and I also ordered chesse fries for the starter, and it was great, and for dessert, I ordered the grilled carrot cake, and it was good, because it was grilled. The service was very good, and I would go back there. I also like the ambiance, and the restaurant, because you can watch games, and it is on HD, and there is alot of flat screens in the restaurant, and I liked it. The only problem is that there is flies in the restaurant, and they go around in your food.
Well this place has closed, it closed in 2008 I believe. They opened one in San Diego in the Spring of 2009 in the new San Diego Hilton Bayview, across from Petco Park. I went there in August of 2009, and compared to the one that was in Irvine, it's smaller, but has outdoor seating, like couches outside with fire places in the front, pretty nice huh. But this one is only a restaurant, and a bar. There is no pool table room, or a lounge, or a mini bowling alley like the one that was in Irvine. But again, I don't know what's the problem, but there was flies again around our food. At first there was no flies, and when we got our food, a flie came in, and flew around our food since the restaurant has an opening to the front to the patio. Well they opened one in September 2009 in Westlake Village where there headquaters are located. Well I hope to go to that one since it's closer to LA. They say that they are going to relocate the Irvine one in Anaheim, and they say it might be in the Anaheim Hilton. I hope they open one there, so it's closer to LA. They say first, it will open early 2009, but I don't know, it probaly hasn't been planned yet, probaly late this year, 2009, or next year, they will open the one in Anaheim.
The food at this place is mediocre at best. Of the 5 or 6 times that I have been forced (by friend) to eat this place I have actually enjoyed the food one measly time!! The service: don't get me started on that... it has to be the worst in the region. I honestly don't think this place would still be in business had it not had the financial backing of Fox Corporation.
WHAT THE People Are Saying....
“West Valley sports fans will have no shortage of quality TV screens to choose from when they step into Fox Sports Grill’s newest location at Westgate City Center in Glendale…The stylish grill recently rolled out a new menu with entrees such as St. Louis slow-smoked ribs and swordfish pasta ravioli.”
The Glendale Republic
“The perfect place to play a game of pick-up with the hottie across the bar.”
“FOX Sports Grill is the new fine dining revelation of the country.”
Orange County Business Journal
“All of the locations successfully fuse upscale indulgence with sports bar adrenaline…”
Nightclub & Bar
“This is a sports bar where women and kids, as well as the men, can socialize in style while watching the games and feasting on fine food.”
Preferred Destinations Magazine
“Don’t be fooled by the name – FOX Sports Grill isn’t just a sports enthusiast’s dream come true. A backdrop of cut stone, an exhibition kitchen, two enormous walls of water and a fireplace may have you wondering if you’re still in the same building as a sports bar. You are.”
Phoenix Home & Garden
“FOX Sports Gill kicks the concept of the jock hangout right out of the stadium.”
East Valley Tribune
“FOX Sports Grill…dramatically ups the ante – ups as in upscale – for sports enthusiasts who like to dine.”
“…the best crab cakes I’ve ever had in California…a spectacular experience…”
Phyllis Ann Marshall
Orange Coast Magazine
“It’s the place where any real sports fanatic would hope to be sent after a long life. FOX is an ex-player’s playground.”
“This nightspot on steroids is neither sports bar nor grill. It lacks the smoky, loud fan folly or a run-of-the-mill sports bar and, with superior menu items such as Atlantic Salmon and tenderloin filet, the word “grill” doesn’t do it justice…”
“The Grub? Better – far better…None of the preparations was less than exemplary, with several original touches to go along with the moist Maryland crab cakes and colorful jambalaya…”
“Treat yourself to scrumptious cuisine and fine wine at this huge nightspot that’s neither sports bar nor grill.”

THE QUALITY OF FOOD IS SO BAD. SERVICE WAS VERY BAD. MICROWAVE FOOD TASTE BETTER THIS PLACE. SOMEBODY NEED TO TRAIN THOSE CLUMSY CHEF. WHO SERVE HOT FOOD TO CUSTOMERS IF THEY KNOW IT IS COLD? WHO WOULD SERVE OLD SALAD TO CUSTOMERS?
We did not get waited on until 15 minutes after sitting at the bar (mind you, it was not busy at all - the bar was not even full). We were there for over one hour and were waited on only once. Service was so horrible, we witnessed a customer pour his own drinks from the bar. We spoke with the bar manager - and nothing was resolved. We ended up leaving completely dissatisfied. And the food was cold, and the drinks were watery. Unless you are absolutely fabulous-looking - do not expect to be waited on.
