Restaurant Of The Week: Fork & Finger

By Audrey Stratton | Local Happenings

At the end of Second Street sits a hidden treasure of Portsmouth, Ohio. Owned by Bill Harmon, Fork & Finger is a restaurant where you can find all of your favorite home cooked meals at any time of the day.


Bill’s favorite is their open face roast beef with mashed potatoes. Yum! They are a family friendly restaurant that is loved by many. It was always Bill’s passion to cook, and it definitely shows when you enter the restaurant and eat their food!


The first thing you see when you walk in is the delicious case of desserts just waiting for you. Personally, I have to be pulled away from the case so I can eat my meal first.



Over the years they have had to move, and it never fails that their loyal customers are always waiting for them wherever they go. They have been voted best home cooked food and have the #1 server of the year. You will always find people of all ages going in for a meal at anytime during the day. 



During COVID, their business has been affected by the shutdown. When asked what the local support meant to them during this time they said, “The local support means so much to us! It has in the past helped us raise our families! And now it is keeping us being able to stay open to do “carry out” during this time. We really appreciate all the customers who have been supporting us as we also support locally. I want to say we don’t just have customers, they are like our family, and to us that means so much!! We want to say "thank you" from our Hearts!! We have been very blessed!”
