Fine dining may be FoxFire’s passion, made clear by the restaurant’s numerous culinary awards, including “Best of the Fox.” But father-and-son team Curt and K.C. Gulbro want you to feel at home while you taste their top-rated steaks, chops and fresh seafood.

“We have been family-owned for 16 years in the same location,” says K.C. “We love the people who come here. We don’t just want you as customers – we want you as a part of our extended family.”

Located just a half-block west of the Fox River in Geneva, FoxFire originally was opened by Curt and a few partners, but slowly became a father-and-son establishment in 2008, and more than just a steakhouse.

The duo believes FoxFire’s secret to success is to, “Love what you do – and always be on top of things,” says K.C.

The father and son “keep on top” by excelling in customer service, making sure their guests receive the best dining experience they can provide – including both service and quality.

It’s intimate, yet elegant setting offers original brick and wooden trellises dating from the early 1900s. Live entertainment greets guests both inside and as they dine on the outdoor patio. FoxFire is also favorite for private parties.

But FoxFire is best known for its food, serving up such favored dishes as filet Diane, filet of Oscar, porterhouse, shrimp, scampi, Asian calamari, and salmon with honey glaze, plus a tempting selection of Cajun-inspired dishes and awesome, elegant salads. Steaks – including ribeye, strip, porterhouse and more – all aged, prime beef, are prepared to perfection. Foxfire also accommodates vegetarian requests, and an extensive wine list and cocktails are available from the full bar to satisfy most every palate.

“We are a family, from the hostess to the owner, and we are all happy to have you dine with us,” says K.C.

Curt and K.C. hope to grow FoxFire within the community, with the possibility of expanding, while “staying true to our customers and our values,” says K.C. Community is important.

“The people of the Fox River Valley are genuine, friendly and kind — Midwest Values,” says K.C. “It’s an honor to be voted Best of the Fox. It is one of our top goals every year! We are so happy to win this award back to back. Thank you Kane County!”
