We had dinner at this restaurant upon a friend's recommendation. We were disappointed in both the quality and quantity of the portions. Neither of us are big eaters but we left hungry.

The place is small and the menu is limited, but that's OK, because everything I've eaten there has been good. I've even purchased their "Thanksgiving to go" items to trick my family into thinking that I can cook.

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant.It is a family operation with great service and food that ranges from comfort (mashed potatoes and meat loaf) to excellent dishes prepared with love and attention to detail. BYOB makes the cost very reasonable. Highly recommended

After reading several very positive reviews, I was looking forward to celebrating a friends birthday at Big Fork. We had a large group and they had kindly offered us their back room to use. First: There was no heat. For most of the meal, the...More
