My wife and I love the food here, but haven't been back since our second consecutive visit where the waitstaff was rude. We're hoping to return someday and find that the owners and management have recognized the importance of courteous and attentive waitstaff. Others we know have observed the same lackluster service.

We had a great dinner at the Fork on Saturday night. We arrived about 715 and the restaurant was full, but we managed to get a table within 5 mins. We shared the Shrimp & Grits as an appy, I had the Chicken Roulade and my husband had 1 of the flatbread pizzas. Everything was delicious! We were impressed with the overall ambiance of the restaurant, the taste and pricing of food & drinks ($4 pints on tap!). Everything looked and tasted great! The only thing that was lacking was that the servers were not "natural servers", probably because they are local girls. But, overall they did a good job.

Made the trek to the otherside of lake Whatcom and it was well worth it. What a great restaurant! Service was wonderful. Shrimp and grits were outstanding and don't pass up on the fire breads.

We have dined here several times, and the food is consistently wonderful. Very creative menu, moderate size portions, superb service. On the east side of Lake Whatcom by Y Road, it's definitely worth the drive. My favorite Bellingham restaurant!
