We had been on the Distillery and Wine Tours and finished around 5:00. So we decided to find a place to eat. The ladies in the Swiss Colony & 7th Avenue recommended the Blue Ox, so we took their advice. Very nice, clean atmosphere. Service was great and the food was excellent. We had a Waitress and a "trainee" serving... More

We were on our way out of town, heading back to Ohio and stopped for breakfast. Service was very good as was the food. My sister and I shared an omelet and there was plenty for each of us, plus it was yummy. Will go again.

We stopped off the interstate for some food and picked The Blue Ox because it looked like a nice sit down restaurant. It was a Sunday and they had a list of specials for the day. One was a 1/2 rack of bbq ribs that fell off the bone and were amazing!!! There were 5 of us in our group... More

I stopped at this restaurant because it was right next door to Swiss Colony's outlet store. Swiss Colony is headquartered in Monroe. Veteran late-night talk-show host Tom Snyder (RIP) used the phrase "very average" when he talked about things which were...in fact...below average. That describes this place perfectly. There's little to rave about here. I had a meatloaf dinner and... More

My husband and I stopped for Saturday night dinner around 6:30 pm. We each ordered a sandwich deluxe which includes fries and soup for an extra one dollar. They brought the soup right away. My husband opted not to eat it as it was not to our liking. After waiting nearly 30 minutes, the waitress came to explain that our... More

Regular food, regular service, moderate ambiance. Nothing much to rave about here. Food was fit to eat as nourishment. Very large menu.

Monday thru Friday are usually the days we try to visit for breakfast to try one of their breakfast specials not only food at a great price but it also includes coffee with the specials.
