This restaurant is in a somewhat remote but beautiful area south of Lake Whatcom. The food is prepared beautifully and with good local natural ingredients. It's popular and it's busy so reservations are advised.

Enjoyed this out-of-the-way small restaurant (7 miles east of I-5) by Lake Whatcom. There is no view of the lake from the restaurant, but it is a pretty drive. We all enjoyed our food and the service was friendly and prompt. Prices are reasonable and servings are ample. On Saturday early afternoon we could order from both the breakfast and/or... More

Wonderful dining experience. Delicious food, comfortable setting and friendly and attentive staff. Enjoyed our time there very much. Salads & flat breads are very good and portions are generous. No complaints!

I've eaten here a few times with my Bellingham friends. This time the food wasnot as great, it was very noise and the service was a little slow. I was more impressed last time I ate there as then the food seemed excellent. Not sure if it is hit and miss or just that the special wasnt great.

This is a bonus to Bellingham - literally in the fork in the road - well-appointed, wood fire pizzas, fresh seafood (the ahi appetizer was exceptional!), salads (nectarine and strawberries green salad - amazing!) and the roasted corn soufflé with the beef! Great wines by the glass (reasonable prices) and local brews on tap. Small intimate, outdoor and bar seating.... More

We went for dinner. We split the shrimp and grits for an appetizer. It's a large portion for two, almost large enough for an entree with a salad. It wasn't low-country style in flavor profile and the grits were the finest-grind of grits I've ever encountered and almost ate like very light and creamy mashed potatoes. You could barely perceive... More

Phenomenal dinner last night!!!! Salmon special earned full marks (as did the rest of the food and service) Mind boggling that "The Fork" is rated so low- Foodies beware; only two worthwhile restaurants in town! "The Fork", and " Ciao Thyme".!!!!! Eat the rest of your meals at home!

While on vacation in Bellingham, almost everyone we spoke to mentioned "The Fork" as a place to have dinner. The meal was great! The place has an interesting menu, our party of four had a variety of dishes and they do everything well. There is a nice wine list and the service was friendly and helpful.

Went for breakfast and enjoyed the outdoor seating even though it was cool. The staff was very attentive and to food was good. Good sized portions as well. We will go back. Pick the less popular hours in order to get seated quicker.
