The restaurant is in a nice quiet setting on the first floor of the Slide Mountain Forest House. The German cuisine for dinner was excellent with plenty of choices and specials. Breakfast will fill you up with plenty of fuel for your days activities. Great pancakes and full-bodied rich coffee. Service was spot on. I will gladly recommend the Forsthaus... More

My family has been going to this restaurant for years and we have never been disappointed. My kids are little and can not sit for too long but there is a living room with a tv next to the dinning room. So the restaurant is perfect for us. The food is so good. The seasonal specials are wonderful. The sauerbraten... More

A lot to like not much to dislike. If you like German food and your in the area you won't be disappointed. I had the sauerbraten and my wife had the roulatin both were excellent. The red cabbage was to die for. Dessert/? Homemade sorbet was mouth watering. The decor was old,but for me, that only added to a great... More

The Forsthaus is a fantastic little German restaurant straight out of Upstate New York history. Not only is the food absolutely delicious, the service is without equal. The atmosphere alone is enough reason to visit this restaurant. It is hard to describe exactly its charm, but it is truly a wonderful experience.

This restaurant is part of Slide Mountain Forest Inn and Chalets but you dont have to stay at the hotel to eat here. The food is German/Austrian....but plenty of choice and cooked fresh. We had a lovely meal and wasn't expensive. All good choice of wine.

I can’t pinpoint exactly what draws us to the Forsthaus, but since we discovered it we make a point of visiting once a year when we are in the Catskills. Going to the Forsthaus Restaurant is like stepping back in time. It feels like you are going to Grandma’s house for dinner. The décor in the dining room and the... More
