“Outstanding Food, Service, Views”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

What a delight. The food was superior. Hillary was a great waitress. We called in a reservation which gave us an ideal table on the porch. The view was a wonderful backdrop to the great food & service. We enjoyed the beef tenderloin and pasta of the day. The wine pairings were terrific. This was elegance in the mountains. When you visit be sure to ask about the coak wall built during Hurricane Sandy.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We traveled to Elkins to meet our niece's husband for the first time. They moved to Switzerland right after their wedding in California and this was a "must" family trip. They just returned to America with a short stop in Elkins to visit family and will live in Arizona now.

The Forks Inn Restaurant was a most pleasant dinning experience for us all. The setting is nestled deep in the woods, high on a mountain in Randolph County on Rt. 33 E. You have to look for it but it's well worth the hunt!

Our dinners were delicious. We dinned outdoors on a porch overlooking a stream and the woods. The service was also excellent. A great family dinner with wonderful ambiance. The Forks has a website: www.attheforks.com

“A True "Gem" in the Hills of West Virginia”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

While driving through Elkins, WV, a waitress from another restaurant recommended we try Forks Inn for a very good dinner and view. She was right...this might become my very favorite restaurant (even though I live 3 hours away). When we walked in, we were greeted very cordially by one of the owners. We fell in love with the beautiful woodwork throughout the dining room and pub, including a gorgeous stone fireplace. We asked to walk around before being seated to get the real feel for this very cozy atmosphere. Two brothers are the owners, and their uncle is the Chef, so they are very gracious to everyone that enters. This little bit of personal attention was truly appreciated. The view was spectacular and you could enjoy it whether eating on the veranda or inside. The food was absolutely delicious from the appetizers to the dessert!! This is truly a "gem" in the hills of West Virginia!!

“A gem in the mountains”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

In town for the Augusta Heritage week and not finding anything food wise that interested us . Then lo and behold we found Forks . Great views from the deck . Food was delicious , the staff attentive and the owner, Trevor informative . We highly recommend a visit if you 're in the area . They missed out on the excellent because they only sell one brand of wine . We had this happen in three restaurants .
