Ken L, thank you for taking the time and writing TripAdvisor about your lunch. It's very nice when our guest take the time and write such nice comments about us. Also, I'm sorry about the Tabasco, I just think Tapatio has a much better flavor, so day try the two of them next to each other maybe you will agree... More

I have read and heard several very good reviews for Fork in the Road. Our group of four went on a busy Friday evening. First, I will say that the service was very good and our server was very attentive and quick in her work. We ordered haystack onion rings and cheese curds for appetizers and they were too greasy...

Hi 64jmp, I'm very sorry that your trip to my restaurant was just OK, we always try to exceed our guest expectations. I'm going to sit down with the kitchen manager and see what we can come up with. Our meat loaf has been on the menu for about 12 years now, maybe it's time to shake up the plate... More

I thouroughly enjoyed the fried chicken which was not too 'bready' but extremely flavorful! Their mozzerella Marinara is amazing too with 3 large crispy squares in tangy marinara. My husband, who eats more healthy enjoyed a salad and a chicken sandwich and love that as well. The bonus was that the bill was verry reasonable - Highly Recommend!!!

The food is well above typical tavern quality and variety. The soups, sandwiches and salads in particular are always well prepared and presented. The service is consistently good and prompt even during busy periods.

The owner and staff greeted everyone at the door - very upbeat and personable. The atmosphere is great - not too noisy - you can have a conversation with friends and hear yourself think, but it has a heartbeat. The decor adds to the place. I ordered a beet and goat cheese salad and it was well plated and tasted... More

I will definitely go back. The roasted beet salad I had was over and above what I thought I was getting, the side bread was a tasty treat. My friends salad looked excellent as well. Great service!
