    Ordered hamburgers. They were raw in the middle. Appeared to be one waitress for the entire place and it was quite busy. Specifically stated birthday on the reservation but it was not mentioned so doubt it transferred across. Food is nothing special. Won't visit again.

    Good Food. Different options then anything else in Hastings or even the tri-cities. If you want to try something a little different give it a try.

    The restaurant was clean and decor was appropriate for the type of restaurant. The staff was friendly but I felt they were a bit unorganized in their service communication. I had to ask for a waiter as we had been seated for quite a while and hadn’t been attended to. Our waiter was polite and did a good job checking on us. The food was okay, but felt there could have been an extra side served for the price of the meal. I would try this restaurant again but wouldn’t go out of my way to eat there.

    My meatloaf was VERY dry. The sides were good. My husbands steak was very tough. My daughters alfredo was pretty good. Our waitress was nice and attentive. Will try again sometime but hoping for better quality.

    I loved coming again, however 3 of my family chose to have lasagna and all were disappointed. They said it was too rich, didn’t like the “odd” vegetables, and no meat. I guess sometimes trying new foods works out and sometimes it doesn’t. They said it would have been helpful to have a better description on menu. They did love sweet potato waffle fries, and sweet bacon bits. They did love cookie dessert. We will come again

    I was not impressed. It took an hour for two hamburgers. Mienu is not clear as it says you can get a gf bun, mushroom, or chicken. My fault assuming I could get the mushroom as my bun. I would write the menu can sub chicken or mushroom for beef. I don't think I will be going back.

    Blue Fork provides high end food and excellent service for a more than reasonable price to a community that desperately needs dining experiences beyond the realm of sports bars. The food is excellent and dishes seem to push the envelope, for instance the chicken salad wrap is not content to be just a chicken salad wrap and goes the extra mile to include jerk seasoning and pineapple pico. Servers are attentive, friendly, and helpful with an overall air of casual professionalism. The venue is brightly lit and tastefully decorated with the only downside being that sound seems to carry very well inside, but this is a very minor issue. Overall Blue Fork is a must visit and I encourage anyone in search of something different or, comfortingly new to give it a try.

    The service is fantastic, the staff was more than helpful. We mentioned a birthday was the reason for our gathering, and when we arrived, there was a "Happy Birthday " plate on the table. The wax sticks for the kids were a hit!

    We finally had a chance to visit the newly opened Blue Fork and we were not disappointed. The food was divine and our drinks were smashing! We had the Pimiento Bombs appetizer, the meat loaf and the steak & frites entrees, and the chocolate chip cookie with ice cream for dessert. Enjoyed a delicious "old fashioned" mixed drink (actually ordered another, because the first one was so good). The meat loaf came with mashed potatoes that were to die for, and who knew it was possible for green beans to be so heavenly?! We will go back ASAP. It's worth noting that Blue Fork is much more casual than its sister restaurant, Odyssey. So happy that Hastings now has two delicious dining options!

    I have been to the Blue Fork three times in the last three weeks. Every time I have been , there is a different menu. The menu that is shown on the website has never been available. Each time there seems to be less choices. I am not a fan of that at all.
