The title says it all. I have been to Elkins a few times and wanted to eat someplace I have not been before so I checked TripAdvisor. The Forks was ranked number one so off I went and glad I did.

Stopped for a quick drink and dessert...can't bet the cheesecake of the day. A little pricey but worth every bit.

Had dinner here with some friends while passing through. Tough to get a seat, very popular with locals. Food was amazing, service was prompt and friendly,. Local, freshly made food, and you can taste the difference. Highly recommended.

I've tried to make a reservation online, but, never received a confirmation. Best plan is to call and leave a message if after hours. Even when you think someone will be there (like, the chef, or kitchen crew, maybe?) they... More
