We often meet friends at the Fork at Agate Bay for a relaxing and friendly meal. It's a little off the beaten track for travelers passing through town but the local's love it. Great upscale menu and great wine selection.

The Fork has two very nice qualities; small, intimate atmosphere, and good food. It is a bit of a drive to get there, but quite scenic. The shrimp and grits is my favorite dish and never disappoints. They have a small but excellent wine list and some great tasting beers on tap. We recently went there with some friends and everyone enjoyed their entree. They have a good selection of "Firebread"pizzas.. Very tasty.
One recommendation for the restaurant would be to change out their entree menu at least every six months or so. Frequent diners would probably enjoy some new taste sensations, like a seared duck breast with a "to die for"sauce!!
It is a small establishment and sometimes it appears there is not enough wait staff to cover, but they do seem to try to do their best. I would go for the shrimp and grits if everything else was lackluster!

The Fork is always a favorite place for us. The service is smart and friendly, but the food is the reason to come: superior presentation, creative flavor combinations, high quality ingredients, appropriate quantities, and overall a joyful dance in your mouth. I also love that the tables are spacious, the chairs comfortable, the lighting just right, and the bathrooms nice. Everything is just right here. We come here for special occasions, when we're feeling down and want to feel better, and when we need to juice up our own cooking, for the inspiration. As foodies, we love this place.
