Formerly known for its Tahoe-rustic feel, Stateline’s Fox & Hound Grill and Bar recently underwent a month-long remodel — its first in over five years.

“The goal was pretty much to freshen it up and then with the extra space — we didn’t gain a whole lot, maybe 125 square feet — we put in a horseshoe bar and picture windows,” Fox & Hound owner Matt Grime said.

The restaurant was closed from mid-April to mid-May to accommodate the renovations, which included taking a wall out in order to create more space for the horseshoe bar. The remodel also included flooring improvements, paint touch-ups and the addition of décor from local artists. Grime and his father Harvey, who is also Grime’s business partner, selected artwork from local shops that represented Tahoe and highlighted Fox & Hound’s award-winning barbecue.

Renovations were focused on the front of the house, but minor flooring improvements were made in the back and kitchen. Remodel costs were estimated at approximately $200,000.

According to Grime, the biggest improvements were the addition of the new bar and view of the outdoors, along with minor updates throughout the restaurant.

“We used to have a more cabin-y feel. We kind of got rid of that and went for a rustic, modern look. It’s updated and people love the panoramic view of the outside. It’s been great feedback so far,” Grime said.

The last time Fox & Hound underwent a remodel was in 2010, when the project was on a larger scale. At that time, the bathrooms were moved to make room for additional dining space, essentially creating a full dining room.

“We were quite small back then,” Grime added.

Fox & Hound Grill and Bar is located at 237 Tramway in Stateline, Nevada. Learn more at or find the eatery on Facebook at Fox and Hound Tahoe.
