We often drive to Jonny Foxes from Aberdeen as we love Inverness and you can't find such nice homemade local food in any of the places in Aberdeen. We love seafood and Foxes has quite a good variety from locally caught mussels and fish to seafood broth. Foxes steak pie and seafood broth is a MUST to try. I'm quite surprised by some reviews that people sometimes find the food greasy. Every visit we've made to this place was a success. It's a lovely vibrant place in the evenings when the bands are playing and crowds are buzzing around. Definitely recommended to take tourists to as this is a very traditional pub with great homemade cuisine and a great selection of drinks. Lagavullin whisky with a nice smoky taste is definitely worth it, you won't find it in shops. Caledonian best beer is also very nice. The prices are really very reasonable. At Jonny Foxes you can feed a family of four, 2 courses and drinks at a lower price than a family of two in Aberdeen. Definitely recommended, thanks, Foxes, the staff are brilliant

Service was friendly mostly but quite slow and several of our meals were below par and unfinished
The food was not very tasty and took ages to have order taken and then got food to come out
I left most of my food on plate as did other members of our party

Went in on spec and told about an hour for a table so ordered a drink and two mins later, thanks to a cancellation, we were seated. Food was excellent and the service was great.

Situated in the Centre of town beside the main road bridge and the river.

Called in for dinner as it was convienient for where we were staying and didn't want anything too fancy. Couple of drinks the dive just wanted a starter so she had the fish cake and I Went for the traditional fish and chips. Portion sizes were good and it was all very tasty.

Service was fast and friendly too. Noticed some interesting items on the menu but you can only eat one thing at a time. Very good.

Scottish food is pretty basic, but this place offered up some nice choices. The mussels and duo of black and white pudding were really tasty. The salmon was decent and my husband said the fish and chips was really good too.
