We've enjoyed a handful of delicious meals here. The location is great - right in the heart of downtown Lyons. Lovely place to stop for breakfast or brunch on your way to Estes Park or the Rockies.

We had a group of 18 for brunch. The staff was great and efficient at getting us seated and served. The Bloody Mary is outstanding and the food is well conceived and not your run of the mill breakfasts. We had among us Shrimp and Grits, Chili Colorado, Chicken with biscuits and Gravy, and many more. I didn't taste all... More

I liked the atmosphere a lot. The staff were very friendly and the food was good, however it was a little overpriced. I ordered the pumpkin cider to drink, which was around $7 I think. The waitress helped me pick my main, which was a pasta dish with duck and a creamy sauce. It was delicious but the portions were... More

Dined here and ordered the Paella - made with Quinoa. A Paella like nothing I had ever seen or tasted before. The other food arrived quickly and was more traditional and tasty. Would recommend, but be careful what you order.

The food was forgettable and overpriced. My serving of a salmon entree was tiny and flavorless. The ambiance is upscale and "cool" but the food and prices don't add up. Better choices for less money are easy to find.

We had breakfast at "Fork" the portions were very small and quite expensive. The "home fries" were burnt black potatoes and the "fruit" mentioned on the menu was half a strawberry and the smallest piece of melon I have ever seen. It seems to be designed for tourists who will not come more than once anyway...

I usually am generous in my ratings .....and 2 out of 5 stars is indeed being generous for this 'hipster' place on Main St. Service was slow right from the start. (Friday night; 8 pm) My simple order for soup and salad gave me indigestion! The corn chowder came after 20 minutes totally cold and was so yukky tasting I... More

We went on a weekday, for brunch. My burger and truffle fries were amazing. My companion's burger was "ok" and his regular fries were "fine". Our server was a little distracted, maybe new? She wasn't sure about some menu items and it seemed like she forgot about us (and our drink refills). It was busy and people were waiting for... More

Walking into this restaurant to have dinner with my wife. They sat us at the corner table inside. There had to be 30 + flies there. Not even an exaggeration, there was probably more. We got up and left. Will not go back.

Hi there Tim W, Yes, we in Lyons are having a terrible time with flies this year. With the building being old, and the doors constantly being open, we can't keep them out. Every building in town is having the same issue, unfortunately. I'm sorry you didn't stay for dinner. The food and service are really great. Maybe you'll come... More

We stopped here after a long day at Rocky Mountain National Park. The food was very good (two in my party had burgers, I had the jerk chicken.) The wait staff was attentive and food service prompt. The restaurant is housed in an old saloon and we enjoyed sitting near the front window looking out on the town.

Thank BOSBristol
