Fox & Hound back on the Grade

Kingsbury Grade landmark Fox & Hound announced it has reopened after 10 weeks.

The restaurant and bar closed July 9 after a small fire on the back deck caused by a generator.

“It was a challenging time,” owner Matt Grime said.

Grime said he is grateful to have all his staff returning, and is humbled by the outpouring of support from the community.

Grime took advantage of the time to do a complete renovation of the business, located near the Ridge Tahoe and the Nevada-side lifts of Heavenly Resort.

Fox and Hound also features progressive video poker, satellite TVs throughout, free Wi-Fi, internet jukebox, and the deck. It is open 7:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week.
