"I was in Rockford for one night and had read about this place beforehand. I found the place, walked in the entrance and...stood there awkwardly for a couple of minutes, unacknowledged, while the people on both sides of the bar continued about their business. Had I not been so determined to try thi..."s place, I would have turned around and left. I am glad I didn't; I continued past the bar, scoping out their selection of bottles and starting to believe this place was only a bar and not a restaurant. THEN I noticed what looked to be a host stand on the other end of the room. Once I got there, I was greeted warmly, seated per my request out on the patio, and had a great meal. I especially enjoyed the opportunity to sample seasonal, local ingredients (like ramps - something we just don't see in California). My server was just a dear and my meal was just what I needed after a day of travel (involving that icky I-90 from ORD to Rockford). I am glad I stuck it out.

"My wife and I have eaten here several times over the past years. The food has always been terrific! The burgers are awesome and the fish fry is the best in town! The staff has always been very friendly and the view from the patio is easily the best in town. We have recommended Noonans to all of our ..."friends and family.

"Rockford, IL where I grew up, is not known for fine dining, to say the least. Five Forks, tho, is a little jewel, hidden away off a main thoroughfare. There was a wine tasting the night we were there which probably affected the service. I had an avocado gazpacho that was out of this world, a great s..."alad and seared tuna, with pistachio gelato for dessert. I cant fault a single thing. I will be back every time I'm in Rockford!
