We went to Fork in the Road for dinner on our way back from the Waterford Balloon Festival. We'd been to a few other restaurants nearby, but decided to try something new after reading some recent TA reviews. Going here was a good choice, as we did not feel out of place due to being dressed rather casually. I thought... More

My parents live nearby the Fork in the Road and when we treck 1000 miles to visit we always end up in the Fork in the Road. Service is always great, food is always well prepared and the selection is good. Its very simple food done right. Bobby Flay once told me "It's all about the flavor" and the Fork... More

Have been there before but been a while. We arrived at 6:30 PM on a Thursday, and this place was hopping, but only waited 5 minutes to be seated. There are not many places to choose from in Mukwonago, but this place fills the niche between inexpensive and expensive. They have quite a business here. The food is great. The... More

The word to use for the product that comes from the kitchen is always consistent. The dishes are eye appealing and very well presented. There is a good selection of items to choose from for all dietary needs, along with nightly specials. The beverage list is moderate, light in wines and IPA beers there is an extensive martini listing. The... More

Thank you for letting me know and I will get to the bottom of this today. Our guest should have the same service level each and every time they walk into our operation. We can have the most wonderful food and beverage around but our guess also need the same level of service. I did talk to the manager that... More

We moved away some time ago but during a recent visit, we returned to this fine restaurant. Met friends for dinner. The atmosphere was lively and the staff was outgoing and friendly. Jordan, our server, was patient with us as we renewed our friendships. She had good recommendations and was attentive. The friend chicken was yummy.

Everything here is delicious, but here are a few of my favorites: Any soup they make - all are homemade and savory, but my favorite is probably their Fall pumpkin soup. Friday Fish Fry - good old Wisconsin tradition. The house salad made with grapes, sugared walnuts and lemon mayo dressing. Parmesan Piccata Crusted Tilapia (and I don't even like... More

One of the best fish tacos I've had in the U.S.A! This place is super busy, but that's because it is so good. Watching the workers flip the tables and serve was like watching a well oiled machine, everyone was moving and the owner even came over to the table more than once just to say hi and joke. The...

We were very pleased to find Fork in the Road and enjoyed dinner with several family members. The bar boasts several outstanding beer selections on tap, everyone's meal was delicious, and the service outstanding. It was obvious that the locals know of and enjoy Fork in the Road, and we highly recommend this restaurant to other out-of-towners!!

Took our family there recently. Can't say it was bad, nor good for that matter. Pretty basic place and nothing ever jumps out at you. You would think that with all of these strongly positive reviews that this place should be a 5-star dining experience. You don't think the owner ever writes his own, do ya? He wouldn't do that?...
