We recently purchased a weekend home in the Poconos, and have been trying many of the dining spots in the Canadensis & Mountainhome area. We've driven past this place numerous times, but never stopped. This weekend, we decided to give it a try for a late Saturday dinner, around 8 pm. It wasn't very crowded, so we wondered if we...

We sat next to a warm stove in a small area near the bar. The house wine (had pinot grigio) was served in very generous portions and nicely priced. The menu has many eclectic choices. Our appetizer of crab-stuffed mushrooms was ok, but I would skip them in the future. The french onion soup was good, the salmon soup was... More

The Forks at Buck Hill is our favorite place to stop in on a Friday night for dinner or a drink at happy hour. The food on the regular menu is delicious, they also have nightly specials. Bar area is very cozy and warm with a wood stove. Dinner is served in both the bar area as well as a... More

Drinks are done right, service is always friendly and welcoming. Menu specials are always intriguing.....and the chalkboard out front often makes us forget about cooking at home. This is a favorite of ours.

You won't be disappointed. This is a really, really local restaurant that is casually upscale and pleasant. The menu has surprises all the time because there is a lot of local clientele and the owner likes to keep them curious. The food is freshly prepared, service is fast and pleasant. This truly is a must-do if you're in the Poconos.

When ever I am in the area I make it a point to stop here. The service and food is always excellent with a variety of foods. I highly recommend you order a martini (always different ones on special) and the wild wings!!

Visited the Forks on Saturday evening, July 26, 2015 and what a disappointment. There were two food servers, the bartender and a young girl. The young girl was our server and although she was very pleasant she knew nothing about food service. Both my wife and I ordered roasted salmon and an appetizer of "chilled" shrimp which was served warm.... More

If you are not with the local "in crowd...don't even go here. We waited for service, had children running all over ..including under our table.... Service was so slow we forgot what we ordered.
