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

We had calabrese flatbread which was a great choice, roasted red peppers, soprasata salami, goat cheese, artichokes it was delicious! Also had in house breaded chicken strips and roasted red pepper onion rings, came with a sriracha ranch that was awesome! Service was super friendly and the atmosphere is perfect! I definitely recommend going!

A group of friends - there were 10 of us - recently gathered for a pre-Christmas dinner at 5 Forks Restaurant. Service was great and the food options were many. Best of all, the Wednesday specials included a bottle of wine for $20.00, which they capped and sealed to take part bottles home.

Even though the place wasn't very busy, service was slow. Perhaps the kitchen was understaffed. One of our dishes was heavily peppered (and we like pepper). Otherwise, the food was good

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.
