Poor meal, poor service, cold and noisy. Met a friend there for lunch and found ourselves in an unfriendly and cold place. Menu was limited, food served cold and waitstaff was rude. Will not be returning.

Some out-of-town guests wanted to try a local restaurant with great food. I took them to Fork, which turned out to be a MISTAKE on my part. It had been over a year since I had eaten at the Fork, and this time was nowhere...More

The bartender recommended the BCS salad with baked chicken, and it was perfect. I wanted a light dinner so I could get the butter cake, and I’m glad I did, on both counts. Recommendations for both.

Great selection of wine and beer! The food selection is good too. We had the tacos and the Cubano. If you like mustard try something with their mustard, it’s delish!!! They source most of their food locally and it’s a comfortable atmosphere. Service was great!

I made reservations for Saturday brunch but didn't need them, which was suprising given the reviews. I had the trout and eggs with polenta and my son had vanilla french toast. My meal was amazing and his was fabulous. The server was wonderful and the...More
