Food was fantastic. I had the 10 oz strip lion with mushroom topping. Everything from the steak to the mashed up the grilled vegetables were excellent. The Buffalo shrimp appetizer is really good. Service was attentive but not too much. All in all it was a really good experience.

My son just had his wedding and reception at 5 Forks. I was very surprised how nice it was set up, and enough room for 50 people. The food was the best I have had at any wedding. There were 3 choices, from steak, chicken and fish. I heard from most people that the food was fantastic. The servers were... More

Group of 4 friends went to catch up not having been all together in about 3 years. We did have reservations which was good as it was busy....which says a lot. Server was attentive and very good. She did not push us to order fast to turn the table. All meals were hot upon arrival which is not always the... More

I ordered a steak sandwich with caesar salad. The food was tasty but not memorable. If you are staying next door at the Days Inn, the location is handy and the food is well prepared... but not special. I would eat there again if staying at the hotel next door but I would not plan an evening to go out... More

I've visited Five Forks multiple times and will continue to hold it as one of my favourite places to eat in Thunder Bay. Everything is always delicious and there are some fun twists on traditional meals. The fish and chips are out of this world and the portion is massive, making the value too good to be true!

Working at the hospital, this is our go-to restaurant for business lunches and entertaining out of town physicians. They've got a large room available for rent which has technology for power point presentations, which we used recently.

Never thought the food was up to much but the decor is nice. On my last visit, it took an hour to get food to our table - we were a large group but it was lunch and most of us had just soup or salad, though. Worse, I found pecan shells in my salad which I could have broken... More
