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

Our office recently went to lunch at Fork. This is a place that I have wanted to try for quite some time based on what I heard that the food is good and they use all local ingredients. The setup is a bit different from other restaurants. Rather than sit down, look at menu and then order, guests are to... More

This place is wonderful. I love to eat at local, farm-fresh restaurants and Fork in the Road was an amazing choice. They have a rotating seasonal menu that varies daily as well. I went for a Sunday brunch with a few friends and everyone was astonished by their choices - they were unique, flavorful and not overdone. I would recommend... More

I've eaten there three times now, the first dish, smoked goat, was tough and stringy, the next, lake trout, had a strong fishy flavor like it wasn't particularly fresh, and the schnitzel was over done and dry. The restaurant is small and not much to look at and needs double sets of doors to keep the cold from blasting the... More

Went with a friend, excited after hearing about it. Had to pay before we even saw the food, fast food style at the counter. Restaurant was cold, food got cold very fast. Server and cook visibly offended when my friend found the chili much too spicy to eat. Food was greasy and not enjoyable. Would never return.

I have been to this restaurant three times in the last month. It really is excellent. The ingredients are sourced from local businesses and they really have some unusual dishes. My absolute favorite is the fried chicken. They drizzle yogurt, honey and hot sauce over it...mouth watering just thinking about it. My husband had the chorizo tacos and said they're... More

unusual combinations but great flavors--for example, at lunch i had something they called 'bowl'. it had shrimp, roasted corn, peppers, and bread and herbs and spices. with it, i had a cold soup that had a wonderful texture of cucumber and melon. the place is small, only accomodating about 35 at a time, but well worth your time to get...
