March 20. By Dave Yochum. Fox and Hound, a mainstay in Birkdale Village for 20 years, has abruptly closed. It’s located next to the new Bartaco, a major new investment in Birkdale, along with expansions or improvements at Brixx, Eez Fusion and a makeover/rebranding Dressler’s, now known as Fin & Fino.

Fox and Hound served burgers and sandwiches, bowls, cocktails, wine and beer, holding popular trivia nights each Wednesday night as well.

Birkdale Village changes

Birkdale Village has undergone a two-year transition to a more upscale mix on the retail side. Birkdale officials said Fox and Hound’s lease is expiring.

“We have mutually agreed to part ways. We are grateful for the community‚Äôs support of the restaurant and look forward to sharing an exciting update about the space soon,” they said in an email this morning.

Qdoba closed in 2022, where Brixx is now located.


“Fox and Hound had a good run but it needed to be totally remodeled,” one patron said in an email to Cornelius Today/Business Today.

Red Rocks spent between $700,000 and $800,000 on a renovation last year.

The Huntersville location has already been removed from parts of the Fox and Hound corporate website. Corporate could not be reached for comment.
