Top marks for creative, tasty dishes

This is a lovely place near Lake Whatcom. We’ve eaten outside on the patio before, but this time, since the weather was cool, we ate inside. Though the entrée menu is not that extensive, it was hard to choose what to order. The ingredients they use are fresh and creative—and locally sourced... read more

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.

One of our favorite places in Whatcom County. Have been a number of times food and service is always good. Well worth the drive.

I took my Wife to The Fork for her Birthday dinner, and were very pleased with our dinner and experience. We started with a Butter Leaf & Bacon Salad with a with Gorgonzola and a Paprika Vinaigrette that was absolutely delicious. My wife had a Pork Loin special with Corn Bread Bread Pudding which both were very good but the... More

Excellent food and service. Had the pork tenderloin. Superbly done. Shrimp and grits were marvelous. Always worth the drive.

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
