We Rode our Motorcycles past this Place numerous times, But Today we rode to Bass Lake with An Appetite! We have tried some other eating establishments in the Area,And A bit Pricey, But this one was Actually Reasonably priced! The seating was limited indoors, and some seating Outdoors, with A nice View.The Forks Cheese Burger was A hit, One of our riders had his on Sourdough Bread. There were 2 waitresses who made us feel very welcome,offering us water when we sat down (Was a Bit warm out, in the low 90's) The Fries & Onion Rings were also great! They gave us GREAT Service, continually offering Soft Drink Refills(Free). We watched as Waitresses walked by with these huge pieces of Ice Cream Cake or?, taking them out to other customers! We will try those Next Time!! We Will be Back!

Loved it twice this week! Food was good. Juice a bit sugary.. Decent price and ridiculously happy people work in this joint. What a pleasure.

This place in beautiful, the movie The Great Outdoors with John Candy was filmed on this lake so you can imagine the scenery. So the drive to The Forks is something else, try the Chicken Fried Steak or just a plain burger, or a caramel shake it is all good, This place has been there for generations and the family works hard - I would highly recommend

We love to hit the forks for a forks burger every year. Sometimes we even manage to work in a breakfast as we did this year and it is always yummy! This year we had a big group of 12 and we were able to sit on the patio. Our waitress was wonderful, she was busy but didn't miss a beat! Great food and a great view.

We went with a fairly large group and had a tasty reasonably priced lunch! Everyone loved their burgers! The fries were piled high. The milkshakes were perfect! The restaurant has indoor or outdoor seating. Indoor was a little rustic and warm, but cozy feeling. You can even arrive via your boat or kayak and park at their dock for free. Yum!
