We had lunch today for Dad's 95th birthday on the outdoor patio with a lake view. Dad wanted a scenic drive and a good burger. We've never been to the Forks before. The staff was friendly. The burgers were very good. Dad even got a complimentary sundae in honor of the day! Definitely will be back!

Great cheeseburgers and fries! Also great chicken fried steak, onion rings, and breakfast items. You really can't order anything off their menu that isn't delicious. It is always crowded so make sure you have time to wait during the summer but well worth the wait. It is a bit expensive but you are paying for an amazing view along with... More

Friendly staff, great food. Always enjoy eating at the Forks at Bass Lake. The Meal Deal is great to share with my hubby. He also is a great fan of the Chicken fried steak.

My wife and I made an early morning stop for breakfast at the Forks prior to leaving on a multi-day backpacking adventure in Yosemite National Park. We got there just after they opened and enjoyed the quiet, rather rustic ambiance as we looked out the large windows overlooking Bass Lake. It was a great scene. We both ordered The Chicken... More

Great homestyle cooking. If you like chicken fried steak this is the place. The plates aren't big enough to hold the steak. Absolutely great!

We stayed here for the Yosemite half marathon. It was very convenient for the race because the finish line is about a mile away. The one bedroom cabin#3 is very clean and pretty much has everything we needed including kitchen items. Staff is nice and friendly. Too bad we didn't have enough time to enjoy the lake. But we will... More

We frequent this place often mainly because there aren't many places to eat at in Bass Lake. The burgers are good, but the meat on the burgers are very skinny. I think it would be better if they were just a tad bigger. I'm sure they do that to keep the cost down. Also the salad are swimming in water... More
