There during off season. Only breakfast was being served. Excellent. Can't wait to try dinner during summer months.

“Good old fashioned German food at the Forsthaus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2009

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 main commons room appears to be unchanged from the 1960’s, but everything is very well cared for, neat and clean. The restaurant is part of the Slide Mountain Inn, and is open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the spring and summer. They serve traditional German food at reasonable prices. Most of the main dishes are $13.50, which includes a salad, and shredded potato cake and beets served family style. The veal was more expensive, but still very reasonable.

On our most recent visit we arrived during a downpour. Some of us were dropped off at the door, and my husband and son went to park the car. When the owner realized they were waiting for the rain to subside he sent his grandson out to their car with an umbrella. Now that’s service! Our waiter was Eastern European and very kind and attentive. The tables are well-lit and the acoustics are very good. The one thing to be prepared for is that it is generally not a quick dining experience. If it gets busy, the kitchen can get a little backed up, but the wait staff and owners are so kind and apologetic that this doesn’t bother us – especially now that we anticipate it. On our most recent visit I had an excellent marinated cucumber appetizer, the chicken schnitzel, and a delicious mango sorbet for dessert.

I always leave the Forsthaus with a pleasant feeling, both about the food and the general atmosphere.
