Hadn't been to Lyons in years, so headed that way around noon on a Saturday. Located right on Main Street, this historic former saloon is very charming and funky. Brunch offered on Saturdays and Sundays, otherwise dinner offered 5-9 pm daily. Nice choices for brunch. I opted for the French toast. Made from a baguette, with a crunchy crust (how... More

This is where you go for dinner in Lyons for that special evening. Superb chef and menu. Added bonus is every now and then you may be lucky enough to catch a performance of some of the best music Lyons has to offer. This is usually great music, in a town known for some of the best music on the... More

Went for a Valentine's Meal that was a set menu. Good food for a decent price. Good service and atmosphere.

We've enjoyed a handful of delicious meals here. The location is great - right in the heart of downtown Lyons. Lovely place to stop for breakfast or brunch on your way to Estes Park or the Rockies.

We had a group of 18 for brunch. The staff was great and efficient at getting us seated and served. The Bloody Mary is outstanding and the food is well conceived and not your run of the mill breakfasts. We had among us Shrimp and Grits, Chili Colorado, Chicken with biscuits and Gravy, and many more. I didn't taste all... More

I liked the atmosphere a lot. The staff were very friendly and the food was good, however it was a little overpriced. I ordered the pumpkin cider to drink, which was around $7 I think. The waitress helped me pick my main, which was a pasta dish with duck and a creamy sauce. It was delicious but the portions were... More

Dined here and ordered the Paella - made with Quinoa. A Paella like nothing I had ever seen or tasted before. The other food arrived quickly and was more traditional and tasty. Would recommend, but be careful what you order.

The food was forgettable and overpriced. My serving of a salmon entree was tiny and flavorless. The ambiance is upscale and "cool" but the food and prices don't add up. Better choices for less money are easy to find.

We had breakfast at "Fork" the portions were very small and quite expensive. The "home fries" were burnt black potatoes and the "fruit" mentioned on the menu was half a strawberry and the smallest piece of melon I have ever seen. It seems to be designed for tourists who will not come more than once anyway...

I usually am generous in my ratings .....and 2 out of 5 stars is indeed being generous for this 'hipster' place on Main St. Service was slow right from the start. (Friday night; 8 pm) My simple order for soup and salad gave me indigestion! The corn chowder came after 20 minutes totally cold and was so yukky tasting I... More
