The food and atmosphere here were fantastic! The food was delicious, lots of quality items and a distinct and diverse menu. The cocktail list was creative. The staff was on point and very courteous! Will definitely make a point to dine here again when I'm in the neighborhood!

Stopped in for a late lunch/early supper after some late season leaf peeping. Place is neat with a large bar area, dining room, seating on the front porch, and a spot with tables in the back. Parking is also in the back. Service was prompt and friendly. I had the Grilled Cheese & Ham & Cheese sandwich which sounds like... More

My second visit here. The first time I visited here was before the fire 3/2015. I visited after attending the Mukwonago Maxwell Street Days. I remember the building being historic outside and inside. I remember the inside with its creaky wood floor and ''natural'' brick wall. No more squeeky wood floors (vinyl wood look floor now) the interior is painted... More

A great place to stop for a meal. We would have driven right by this had we not had Siri telling us to go there. Casual dining and great food. We had the prime rib and the brisket panini. Would definitely have it again. The fried chicken looked awesome, too. Lots of choices and good pricing.

We discovered Fork in the Road some years ago. The food was so good that we kept talking about going back. We finally did and the food was just as good as we remembered. Their special on Saturday nights is prime rib. It is so tender you don't need a steak knife, just a fork.

Five of us enjoyed soups and sandwiches. Chicken cooked just right, Reuben lean, '3 Rs' (an October special) delicious brisket, spicy beans had a bit of a note, soup super, and their home made chips were the best ever- wonderful seasoning. Clean, fast, friendly service. Front room was noisy until the big tables got their food😊. Why go anywhere else... More

Have been back many times since my initial review, but last night (Thursday) was the first time we had Samantha as our server since then. We have been going to Fork for over 12 years and she is one of the best ever. Again last night she was friendly, polite, poised, efficient, and attentive. Just perfect!

Grew up in Mukwonago my whole life and had never been to Fork in the Road until I moved away. Now I can't get enough of the wonderful food and service this restaurant provides. Consistent quality and top notch cuisine. Great for lunch or a family birthday. Will be back as much as possible. (House salad is to die for!... More
