“Not bad at all.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Food was pretty decent and well-priced. Overall, the ambiance and service was above average. I chose the Wedge Salad for dinner with some bread. The salad was well put together, with a generous amount of bacon bits and dressing. The Brie Cheese sandwich sounded intriguing, maybe next time. I would recommend getting the dressing on the side next time in case you don't want much dressing.

“Very good and will definitely give it another try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

We went to the Bent Fork for lunch with my co-workers and I really thought the restaurant was nice inside and that it had a nice atmosphere.

The menu is great and offered many different options. There were several items I would have chosen but ended up with the grilled shrimps tacos that day.

My tacos were fine but I would not order them again. There were many other items that looked good/better including their salads.

My co-workers seemed to enjoy their dish.

I would definitely try it again.

My husband and I have been to this restaurant 3 times prior to the last and it was very good. We prefer to visit independent restaurants and not chains which is difficult to do these days. We were very disappointed in the food this time, very mediocre at best. Between the 4 of us we had 2 caesar salads with Salmon, Fish & Chips and Prime Rib. None of it was worth going back for again. Service was good, not great.

“Good American Food at reasonable prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

We like to go here for a good meal with no frills. The menu is widely varied enough to satisfy all tastes. This is not fine dining but a predictable good meal. A comfort food place when we do not want upscale or a noisy bar. Salmon Fish and Chips is unique here but all items are good. Appreciate the quiet room it provides for good conversation.
