A word from South Fork Grill
South Fork Grill is a casual friendly bistro style restaurant. We serve very fresh farm to table type food. We have a covered patio area that is loved by many & are known for our dessert case (all made by our in house pastry chef). We serve steak, seafood, pasta, burgers & vegetarian items. We are happy to modify to serve any allergies or special eating requests. The Executive Chef, David Belcher has over 25 years of serving quality dishes. The owners, Chris and Jodi are a Walla Walla couple often on site wondering around looking for good conversation & smiles on your face! SFG is popular with the locals & is located just outside the downtown area south of town. When making online reservations you are not able to request certain tables. If you would like to request patio tables or a certain spot, please check with the restaurant directly. And if we are showing no more availability online, we do have an expansive patio that still may have seating available for you.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Hats off to both, the head chef and pastry chef! Our entrees were fantastic and we had scoped the dessert selection prior to ordering."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Some exceptional food, some bland and problematic. Gristly prime rib, and an extremely bitter ingredient in the vague crab cakes. Excellent housemade pasta and focaccia, and a wonderful marionberry pie."

  • "The online reservation format was easy to follow and worked perfectly."

  • "Hate to be negative, so I will start with the positive. The service was very good , attentive , smart and upbeat. Unfortunately the food was not up to par. My wive's lamb and potato and my chicken were bland, not seasoned as you would expect. With every bite we were thinking we could make these dishes better at home. We will not be back soon. We miss the old chef and the old menu."

  • "I had the steak, which was very good. I'm in a minority of people who prefer their steak cooked well, and this was more rare than I'd prefer, but it was delicious and I won't knock the restaurant for it. My wife chose the special, a mahi mahi dish, but was not as happy with it as it was somewhat dry and lacked that "special something." Overall, the experience was pleasant, it was a good meal and nice wine. The indoor seating is a bit small and it feels a little more like a lunch cafe than a fine dinner restaurant, but if you can reserve a booth you won't be disappointed. Large outdoor seating for summer dining, but on hot Walla Walla evenings we prefer air-conditioning."

  • "My Mahi mahi tacos were skimpy and not that interesting...the waiter forgot to put in our appetizer order, brought our beer to us with the bottle set inside the pint glass,didn't seem clean. The pie I had was very average, like something I could have made myself. This is the first time I have been to the Southfork Grill, I absolutely loved every meal I had at the Creektown restaurant that preceded it. I had high hopes, but was a bit disappointed with my food, service and the overall ambience. The tables are so close together it is difficult to ignore the conversations of the groups around you. If you go...make sure you get a booth if you are eating inside."

  • "I've eaten here several times and the food is always great, service is excellent and it's a bargin compared to some similar places in Walla Walla. The desserts are also yummy!"

  • "Living in tri-cities can be a drag when it comes to restaurants. South Fork Grill is only 50 minutes from our house and the drive along the river was very scenic and nice. It was worth it to dine somewhere that was elegant and not a chain. My husband ordered the lamb shank and I had the Ahi tuna, which was the special. Both dishes not only looked amazing but tasted fabulous! Cozy atmosphere with tons of old pics hanging on the walls. I can't wait for the next date night where my husband and I can make the trek to SFG. "

  • "Great food, service, and location. What more could you want? The food exceeded our wildest expectations and we're still talking about it today. The service was excellent - they not only treated you like a valued customer, but like an old friend. We'll be back!!!"

  • "My first time at the South Fork Grill was a real pleasure. We dined outside on a nice sunny evening. I had the swordfish special and it was superb. i would go there again. "

  • "My wife and I had a great dinner and the wine flight was great you guys should do that with every wine of the month."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "South Fork Grill is a favorite restaurant that we visit often! Chef Dave has a great combo of foods, the wine list features excellent Walla Walla wines and the staff is tops in efficiency and friendliness. We highly recommend SFG!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Dinner was superb...you could visit, but it was a little noisy. There is a lovely outdoor patio, when it gets warmer . Will definitely go back. Ha the seared scallops were divine....other plated dinners that passed our table looked delicious as well"

  • "The chicken was so wonderful that I seriously had dreams of going back that night! We sat outside and it was great! "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "They have a small menu and didn't have most of the dishes they had listed. Food was so/so but if you going to not have the menu you should probably let your customers know before they sit down. It wasn't the waitress fault but the owners. It puts stress on your employees when we kept asking okay will have this and then they have to continue to say... nope sorry we are out of that over and over again. We will probably not come to eat here again when we visit Walla Walla again. Especially since I went for my birthday and it wasn't the atmosphere I was hoping for."

  • "Sat outside for lunch. server didn't rush us. Food was very pleasant and she allowed us to linger and chat without too much fuss."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Have had a few great meals there in the last few months and they are consistently great. The wine list changes enough to be still interesting for locals and the food is always good and reasonably priced. Don't skip dessert!"

  • "my husband and I ate there on a busy Saturday night. He ordered the steak and it was so thin, looked like a breakfast steak. they had prime rib as a special and we saw the next table over had ordered it but again, they cut it very thin. you don't serve steaks thin! we ordered the grilled Caesar salads, very disappointing as well. never got offered desert, but after the dinner had, we were not planning on it. will not be back, nor recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We were disappointed with our food. My husband ordered prime rib, half of which was fat. The vegetables were too al dente for his taste. It is disappointing to spend almost $30 on an entree and only have half of the food be edible. I tried the fried chicken and enjoyed the spiciness of the coating. One piece was cooked well, but the other pieces were overcooked and dry. The side dishes were good, but nothing special. Overall, I think we enjoyed the bread and wine most of all."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was good,but the restaurant was a bit dingy and overheated. I suppose given the reviews, I expected more."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This was far and away one of the best meals that we has while we were in Walla Walla. In fact it was so good we went back for lunch the next day"

  • "We felt like one of the locals -- clearly a hidden favorite. The place was FULL on a Monday night! The food was wonderful and the hostess was perfectly attentive. We would definitely go back again....."

  • "My wife and I went there for our anniversary. I had the Special (top sirloin w/ chimichurri), a bowl of french onion soup and grilled caesar salad. My wife had the New York steak w/ creamed spinach. Both of us ordered our steaks medium rare. Mine was medium rare but there was only enough chimichurri for one small bite. The onion soup was not bad, but the grilled caesar salad had NO flavor, I take that back, the one anchovy and the three olives had flavor. My wife's steak was maybe 1/3 inch thick and was cooked medium well/well done. The creamed spinach was watery and had NO flavor. The Black Beast dessert was the best part of the meal and went well with the Amavi wine. Overall, the main course was bland and not worth the $75 spent."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "From the bread basket with yummy fresh bread to the exceptional dessert, South Fork Grill was a treat. We ate inside this time, but if you get a chance, try the patio. The desserts here are to die for and local foods make the entrees well worth the trip."

  • "My wife and I had our "one day late" Valentine's dinner at South Fork Grill. We knew that it would be a great night and it was. We both ordered an apple cranberry salad and the filet mignon. Both of our steaks were perfectly cooked and seasoned and the mashed potatoes were excellent. We had a great night at a great restaurant!"

  • "If you want food that melts in your mouth and customer service that is above and beyond then this is the place for you. Late lunch; quiet; and they never made us feel like we needed to leave even when we were the last one's in the restaurant."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "Wasn't expecting much when I walked in...it seems quite small for indoor seating, but has more on the outside. The service was quite quick and they had bread/oil out to us within minutes. I heard the clam chowder was very good. Many in our group had steaks (one filet and two house special sirloins) which were excellent....perfectly prepared. I had their signature burger which was also excellent -- a hand formed patty, perfect medium rare, and fantastic bun. Save room for pie....a real treat and several options to choose from!"

  • "This being our second visit to Walla Walla, we opted to select a restaurant a bit outside of the immediate downtown area. Very friendly and prompt service. I had the salmon, and thought it was excellent. I do not recall exactly what my wife and daughter ordered, but I remember them both describing their meal as "very good". The display case was full of tasty looking desserts, but only my daughter ordered one (a pie), which she was very happy with. We dined on a Sunday, and made reservations, but might have gotten by without them. But, it is not a big place, so reservations are probably a good idea. I think that the value was a bit better than a similarly positioned restaurant downtown that we had eaten at previously."
