This place is just awesome. The view is beautiful, Santiam River rushing by and if the right season dozens of hummingbirds flying around feeding on necatr. The food was great. We both had burgers which were juicy, fresh and delicious. My Mom had the french...More

Marion Forks Restaurant is about halfway between Salem and Bend, Oregon on busy Hwy. 22. It's not easy to spot from the highway because it's on Forest Service land and restrictions prevent good signage. But once you find it, you'll discover it's a woodland gem....More

A not too crowded, comfortable for groups, restaurant. The view and hummers on the patio (seating there)make it a wonderful rest stop. The staff was accommodating and food was generous. We haven't tried their lunches but definitely worth the stop.
