Delicious surprise hidden away

My family lives in Bellingham and this is one of their favorite spots which they treated me to tonight for my first time. The milk braised pork was something of legends. Unique, fresh ingredients, melt in your mouth delicious, and healthy. We'll absolutely be back.

A bit pricey for it's setting, but the food is high quality. They could use some curtains or something to help curb the echo chamber effect in the dining areas.

A little bit of a drive out, but we started our Saturday early & enjoyed the pretty drive around the lake to find this place and have a nice breakfast. I think we arrived just after they opened. The ratings were good & after our visit I would say the definitely deserve it. The service was friendly & made you... More

Intimate, bistro dining. A birthday dinner for three. The halibut was exceptional. The bite of shrimp and grits from my husband's choice, may have changed my mind about grits, delicious. Service was very good. A nice range of menu choices, but limited enough to give special attention to each diner. Funky building, beautifully remodeled.

First visit to The Fork and it was delicious! Heard about the restaurant from the chef's parents who live in my town, so on a visit to Bellingham, we stopped for lunch and so glad we did. I had the huevos rancheros which were yummy. Others had the hamburger and said it was the best they have ever had. The... More

We made reservations well in advance for a romantic, Sunday night anniversary meal at "The Fork at Agate Bay". We had dined there for many celebrations in the past and anticipated a wonderful meal. Upon arrival we were seated in a side section by the bar. There was a large, loud TV blasting a football game. Diners at the next... More

Great restaurant! Visited for an early evening dinner. The special for the night was Alaskan King Crab legs, flown in fresh from the boat. A little pricey, but well worth it. The meal was prepared perfectly, including the vegetables and potatoes! Very nice quiet atmosphere, excellent drink selections and draft beers. We are going back soon!
