We had about 1 1/2 hour wait for our table, but were entertained by the planes while we waited. The lobster eggs benedict and the French toast were delicious. The cheesy hash brown potatoes were also a big hit with the kids.

We've had breakfast here many times and would recommend it for breakfast. We live about half a mile away, so we were looking forward to a nice bike ride to a nice dinner. We were, however, disappointed and will stick to breakfast. The positive is that in good weather it's a great place to bring children with rows of cornhole... More

We love this place. Unique ambiance sitting on the Katama Airfield with flight decor. Terrific menu items - looks like a few have been added since our last visit. We have been here for breakfast and lunch. Some dishes we've had that have been excellent: eggs Benedict with lobster (pictured), omelettes, hamburger, BLT, pancakes, French toast, and more. The wait... More

One of or favorite casual dining spots in the island. Because of its location there is always a pleasant breeze coming from Katama. Today was lunch for three and we used the online app "NoWait" to stand in virtual line. Worked perfectly. We were seated almost immediately after arriving. I at the Nicoise sandwich which was a twist on the... More

I wanted a light supper so I ordered a green salad and gazpacho. Both items were disappointing. The salad came on a small plate and included a layer of lettuce, 5 or 6 small silvers of red onion and a light covering of a bland dressing. The small servicing of gazpacho looked and tasted like a broth with its yellow... More

You'll wait for a little while on a summer Saturday, but it is way worth it. Choosing what to order is the hard part...I've never had anything I wouldn't order again. Location and atmosphere are what really make it though, with a serene broad vista out toward the ocean. It's heavenly

I had never been to Right Fork Diner before even though I'm a year around resident. Breakfast was great as well as the staff.

Actually couldn't get a table this year but last year's meal for a group of 10 was quite good. Didn't expect alcohol to be offered but their specialty cocktail was excellent

Interesting setting on an airstrip.... we saw planes landing and taking off, including a biplane. Good beer choices. Breakfast all day.... homemade hash a real winner! Sandwiches and salads were also delish! And the prices were not bad as compared to other MV restaurants.
