My own feeling is that it is a bit pricey for what you get. The food is good, and much more innovative than most places. Bring you wallet! I think the basic burger starts about $8 (and is about a quarter as good as the $3 one at LeRoy's Bar)

Our first visit was pricey but delicious. The second trip was disappointing. The menu had completely changed, and the veggie scramble contained many bitter items that should have been tasted before they were served. For two of us, the breakfast bill was $31 which did not include any beverages or tip. Also, it took over an hour before our food... More

We stopped here while driving up to Traverse City and it was worth the trip away from the highway. The place is casual, but the food is excellent. My wife had the macaroni and cheese with pork belly, and it is some of the best mac and cheese we've had. I had the pulled pork burrito and it was also... More

Heard a lot of hype about this place and decided to check it out. Didn't think it was as great as all the reviews I read, but good was ok. If you are looking to try something different from traditional fare it's a good place to go.

While tasty and liking the lime they put into the tacos, I thought it was a bit overpriced and left still quite hungry.

Gloria & I enjoyed our Granddaughter's 3rd Birthday with Her Parents. Portions were generous, quality was great. Their recipes were unique, we had breakfast fair at 2pm. Omelette's were yummy, along with Burrito and fried chicken! We found the fried potatoes good but overly spicy for our taste. The staff was pleasant. Counter service is not our favorite, but the...

I'm looking forward to visiting my sisters in the Lansing area again this fall. Last time I was there, we went to Fork in the Road on a recommendation from a friend. I immediately fell in love with the retro music and atmosphere. Having lived in Seattle the past 35+ years and traveling to many large cities, I didn't expect... More

While that's not saying much, this is probably the best spot to grab some quality food at a reasonable price in the Lansing area. The menu is constantly changing so there's a reason to continue coming back for more. Great brunch and dinner. Portions are quite large, so no need to order an app in addition to the main course...

Our group had fabulous meelas at Fork in the Road that were savory works of art for the eyes and the taste buds. Betwee the three of us we had the carrot soup, mac and pork, and the fried chicken. Each was scrumptious and delicious. Great food for reasonable prices and very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend! BTW -... More

I had heard many great things about this local restaurant so my friends and I visited on a Sunday, when they only serve brunch. The atmosphere of the restaurant is extremely tiny so if you are claustrophobic I do not recommend going here. They have a very unique set up where they greet you at the door when you enter,... More
