I am aware the restaurant is not open at this time. I am saddened by that fact. I am also very glad, despite the horrible circumstances surrounding the fire, they are going to rebuild and reopen. When they do I plan to go as soon as possible. We never had a bad experience in any way at Fork in the... More

I have eaten several meals at this restaurant and they are all consistently excellent. I have had both lunch and dinner, and was always pleased. To oversimplify, Fork in the Road is a homey, comfortable, place in a historic building with home made specialties and great service. You can get meat loaf, steaks, a great variety of unique salads, wraps,... More

We always enjoy going to Fork in the Road. Their sandwiches in particular are always creative and delicious. On our recent visit, I had a chicken sandwich. The chicken breast was lightly breaded and sautéed and topped with carmelized onions, green peppers, cheese and dried tomatoes on a toasted bun. Yum. My husband had what they called a chicken club...

Went there last summer and liked it so much planned to go there again. Finally got back today. My wife ordered the chicken "tenders" from the appetizers menu (8 dollars),because she liked them so much from our first visit. A meal in itself, had to have a bag for the leftovers to take home.

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.
