We wouldn't come back to wait over 45 mins for our brunch..we watched the waitress push all the food on the floor and people were getting potatoes and straw ect stuck in their shoes. We asked some one to sweep the floor as we were...More

Food selections are a little unique, but not so much as to be strange. Food was excellent but service was incredibly slow. Until I hear that service has improved I won't go back---it was that slow!More

Hi tikiblue! Thanks so much for the kind words. We are proud to prepare everything in house from scratch using locally sourced ingredients. This farm to table process might take a few minutes longer, but it is well worth the wait! We have some great...More

I wish I had more time to sample the rest of the menu. The kitchen is doing a lot of things the right way. Coffee and Ancho Chilli Braised Beef Short Ribs should be enough to grab your attention. House made: smoked marinara, hand cut...More

If they can get the service to a suitable standard, I think this would be a great little eatery, because the food was quite good. Here at brunch time, so orders were a mix of breakfasts and lunch.

My family has not enjoyed Old Fork as much. The food is good, but we find the staff doesn’t stay long and are always “new”. The answers you get about specials and features seem to change constantly and we are going less often because we...More

The Old Fork opened its doors on March 1, 2013. Instantly it has become a staple in the Duncan community as the most fun and funky place to grab a plate of food in the morning. Our most popular dishes: the Huevos Rancheros, Reggie's Old Fork and our classic bennies are house made and served by our friendly staff. Take a mix of old-style Southern goodness and modern restaurant professionalism with a Vancouver Island foodie sensibility and you have The Old Fork. Real Food made with Quality Ingredients at a Great Value.
