I've been here once and only once as have a lot of my friends. This place is a complete joke to locals. Nobody that lives here likes this place the food is terrible. All the good reviews on this restaurant are obviously fake

After reading other Trip Advisor reviews of this place, we decided to try it for dinner. While other reviewers raved about the cheese curds, I won't. They were good but nothing out of the ordinary. They could also have been a little hotter when served. My wife and I both had creamy broccoli soup. Again, it was good but not... More

This restaurant gives you an incredible value. I couldn't believe how small my bill was because my meal came with soup, salad, entree, bread, and dessert. The french fries are the best I've ever had. However, during my last visit my entire group got sick that evening. I talked with others who said they have gotten sick from the food... More

Entering the Fork and Knife is an excellent culinary experience. From the Hostess to the bus boys and servers your visit well be pleasant. The food is always fresh and tasty, seasoned only to accent the foods own flavor. Cost is reasonable and the quantity is equal to the cost.

This restaurant, right off the highway, was full of seniors. The menu has something for all at reasonable prices. Breakfast items are popular. Sandwiches, wraps, salads, pizza, and hot comfort foods like turkey and beef to name a few. I had a chicken melt with bacon. It was served with a pickle and a small salad. The chicken was seared...

Went for a mid morning snack when the restaurant was not busy. Shared a couple pancakes with my 5 year old. Got the bill and a $1 sharing charge was added to my $4 pancakes. I complained and they grudgingly removed the charge.

I went here several times while working in town. The food was always good and the prices were fair. One time I went in however, no one came to the front of the restaurant to seat me even though the restaurant was not that busy. I ended up walking out and to the Perkins nearby.
