We had the Half Herb Roasted Chicken, which was amazing. But we also wanted a vegetarian option, and the Gemelli was disappointing. The service was good, but we were seated at the far end of the restaurant near the kitchen, and were repeatedly subject to loud crashing dishes. I know we should have said something, but this was mostly after... More

Very friendly staff, good people. Very good food, what you expect when you look at the menu and the price. Just missing that extra part to justify the cost

Really enjoyed this gem in the middle of nowhere. The pork belly appetizer was delish as were the mussels. My husband loved the gazpacho and the hanger steak. The ambience us rustic yet charming and current. Great find!

We have now tried several of the restaurants in Rangeley, and I would say this is the best. The menu is interesting, they have a nice wine selection, and the staff is really very friendly. We arrived as a party of 4 on a Saturday night and asked if we could put two 2-top tables together on the little front... More

We had an excellent meal at Forks in the Air. The Lobster Mac and Cheese is too die for with large portions of lobster. The Sea Bass was perfectly seared and served over a delicious roasted sweet potatoe and peach hash. My husband had the half chicken dinner. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal.

Forks in the Air came highly recommended. It exceeded expectations. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. The food was high quality and delicious.. My son had the hanger steak with the squash au gratin which was first rate. However the star of our visit was the pork belly appetizer a must try for pork lovers. It was definitely one of... More

It's quite hard to find fine food in the lakes region, here you can! I mean not the usual "pub food" but something more interesting...

As soon as you walk in, you are warmly received and feel you're in a neighborhood gathering place, and not an anonymous cypher in a summer resort town. The food is first rate -- we enjoyed salad with buttermilk dressing, oysters from the Acadia region, porky belly, and more. We chose small plates rather than entrees, to enjoy more tastes... More
