My wife, our two boys and myself had several great meals here while we stayed at the Northern Outdoors lodge. Can't go wrong with several meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Food is perfectly adequate as is the service. Designed mainly for guests of Northern Outdoors Adventures. Interesting old photography with captions decorating the walls. The Micro brews can be sampled and they are well worth it!

The Kennebec River Pub & Brewery is our full-service restaurant at The Forks Resort Center. The pub shares space in our grand, open-timbered main lodge with our Kennebec River Brewery, home to several fine handcrafted ales and lagers. The brewery is also on the Maine Beer Trail. We utilize fresh, local foods to the fullest in our hearty breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes. We serve delightful pub fare with a mouthwatering selection of jumbo burgers, our famous beer battered onion rings, and Northern Nacho's - a heaping stack of tortilla chips with a melted blend of Monterey Jack & Cheddar cheeses, jalapenos, black olives, onions & tomatoes. And nothing compliments pub fare any better than a fresh, handcrafted beer from our Kennebec River Brewery!
