There is so much great about this restaurant, words cannot begin to describe. The staff welcomes you openly, and they work together as a team to be sure you have the best service possible. Food is always excellent. One time I visited, the owner asked where I wanted to be seated. I said wherever it was most convention. He said... More

So sad this wonderful spot is closed to repair extensive fire damage. They plan to reopen this fall. Can't wait.

Let's go to "the Fork" as we locals call it is an excellent restaurant. They serve many different and interesting salads for lighter fare, wonderful flavored margaritas, and delicious entrees. There's also patio seating in the summer and table arrangements for larger groups. My husband and I go there often.

A very good neighborhood place and will be sorely missed in Mukwonago. There does not seem to be any work being done on the building and from what I hear from others (who know better than I) the ownership is not certain as to reopening. Too bad because there are not to many options in the local area.

We did have a fire in our building on March 23rd. We have always planned on reopening. It has been a process to get things going. My landlord is working to get the building ready for us to reopen. A new roof was put on the week of June 23 and we are having a rough electrical inspection on Monday,... More

We were greeted at the door by the very nice owners. Wait staff were informed and service was very good. Fish dinner and Steak dinner are highly recommended. Great atmosphere and very welcoming, Rare indeed.

My family and I have dined at Fork In The Road at least weekly for the past several years. The food is consistently excellent but, more amazingly, so is the service. Servers have always been completely knowledgeable, personable, caring and thoughtful. As busy as the restaurant often is, you're always made to feel like you're special, and Dennis' frequent tableside... More

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
