I've driven past this place for years and finally took the opportunity to visit with my wife. Turns out on Wednesdays they have an all you can eat fried chicken with coleslaw, cornbread and cinnamon butter. You also get your choice of fries or garlic mashed potatoes with gravy. No brainer for us, garlic potatoes all the way! It was... More

I don't care how good their food is or how friendly their staff, I will never step foot in their restaurant again. It was my turn to plan the monthly outing for my Red Hat group. We were to ride the Electric Train that runs between East Toy and Mukwonago and then have lunch at The Fork in the Road... More

Yes Janet it was the owner and I'm sorry you thought I was rude, but I wish that you would have told the whole story. That you also wanted to change your time from 2:00PM to 1PM, I know this is not your problem but I would have to not sit and entire section 30 to 45 minutes before you... More

Had lunch here and tried their new brisket sandwich. The sandwich itself wasn't bad, I prefer a little more smoke, but it was good. The fries were great as well. The staff here are second to none! Nearly every person said hello, thank you, and were smiling. It didn't seem forced either, really great. My meal also arrived very quickly... More

Been here numerous times food and service is always great. The fried cheese appetizer is the best. The knife and fork club sandwich never disappoints. The last time I was there the French onion soup was missing something and was very bland. The waitress promptly went to the kitchen to try it after I told her and she came back... More

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

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
