Came here on the suggestion of a friend as being a good place to take a variety of people; I would tend to agree. Everyone was able to find something to eat and the food was above average but I wouldn't say great. I would say that it was a bit better than a Kelsey's but nowhere near as good... More

Quiet and pleasant place for lunch. Clean bathrooms which should be important. I have never been there in the evening so cannot judge.

This was a repeat visit. Good menu, nice atmosphere, great food. Met with a group of 6 and were well attended to and very pleased with all facets of the visit. Would definitely return if the opportunity presents itself.

The first night, we did take out, which was so convenient since I wasn't really feeling up to going out.. The second night, we ate in the restaurant. the service was friendly and the food was great. I had the salmon,... More

We stayed at the Days Inn next door and we were pleasantly surprised to see this lovely unique restaurant right next door within walking distance. My husband opted for the ribs and I got the wings,.. Everything came fresh and hot,... My mild wings may have had a hotter bite than expected, but I certainly did not leave any behind.... More

5 Forks was recommended by a Canadian we met, who was apparently a foodie. The menu included items one would expect to see at one of the better American restaurants. I had the Porta Belle Chicken with lighted cooked vegetables. The chicken was very good and the vegetables were done correctly, unusual at the kind of restaurants I tend to... More

Since Monday was the only day all of us were free to go out for a leisurely lunch, we were pleased that 5 Forks was open when some other restaurants were not. The weather was pleasant, so we ate on the patio. The service was excellent, but then again there were few other diners. I had the pulled pork sandwich... More

5 Forks Restaurant is a relatively new enterprise in Thunder Bay, but, has upheld the top quality required to attract and keep satisfied clientele. The ambience is attractive to all tastes, from a somewhat intimate section to a more open multi guest room. The menu is upscale yet not too pricey. A full bar offers premium wines with all other...

I would eat here again, no questions asked. It's not in a busy area, but easy enough to get to. The sun was in my eyes out on the patio.
