This enormous sports tavern at the Eastgate Shopping Center in Mayfield Heights (or at the Parma location) was made to accommodate enormous numbers of billiards players. There are tables on tables on tables. We should expect as much, as Fox & Hound is a national chain devoted, at least in part, to pool. They make renting tables as easy as pie, and you rarely have to wait long for a fresh one to open up: ideal because, after all, you came here to play pool. The tables are clean and level, the sticks are straight, which is more than can be said for the equipment at your local bar. With nightly food and drink specials, a long beer list, and plenty of big TVs for watching the Browns, Cavs and Tribe, you can crush the cue ball as you crush a brew and good old-fashioned American pub fare.
