“lovely site & good food - expensive drinks!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

I went to this restaurant with 7 friends. The menu was quite extensive. I picked the beer battered pickerel & fries & was delighted to find that I could even have malt vinegar with my fish!! So often the people in a restaurant do not know what you are talking about or they just dont have it! White vinegar does not do the trick. There were 2 pieces of fish & they were both very tasty. The fries seemed to be home made & were also delicious. The prices in this restaurant were a little bit excessive - I find the drinks were ridiculously priced - $8 for a glass of wine & $6 for a beer. All ny friends enjoyed their meals too. The restaurant is situated at The Forks & we had a lovely view from our table.

“A disappointing selection for vegetarians, otherwise good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This restaurant has a lovely setting, good decor, friendly staff, and the food is good - but... there was only one offering for vegetarians, and that was pasta. A very uninspired dish to offer the non meat eater. They clearly have a good chef so I am surprised this was all he could come up with. That said the past was very good. And dessert was good too. So all i ask is - offer more choice please!

“Great service from Jereme”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were staying at the hotel (Inn at the Forks) so this was very convenient. We had breakfast here and enjoyed our meals. The portions are quite large, the prices are reasonable, and the service was excellent (our server was Jereme). We would definitely eat here again.

“Delicious gluten free options!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

I ate dinner and breakfast here and was really impressed. Food was delicious, presentation was beautiful, and service was top notch. My food has to be gluten free and they took great care to prevent cross contamination. I'll dine here again!

“Awesome place to gather with girlfriends!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We love going to the lounge at the Inn at the Forks. The Current serves lovely food (the huge shrimp and salad on the martini glass) and has a nice selection of wine. It bright and comfortable with a beautiful view of the Forks. We go back there often for the food, ambiance and good times with friends.
