Thriftway Food Store is the main grocery store in Forks. Actually, other than smaller convenience stores it's pretty much the only place to get supplies and groceries. They do carry a wide variety of items, and you should be able to find anything you need here. But, having said that, it's very expensive. As we perused the aisles we couldn't help but notice how much higher the prices were than what we were used to back home in Las Vegas. I talked with one of the locals and asked her where she shopped. She explained that most everyone she knows drives to Port Angeles or Sequim and does their shopping at either Walmart, Costco or Safeway. Even with the drive and gas money it comes out cheaper, she said.
We stocked up on the bulk of our food and supplies while we were in Sequim and I'm glad we did. Saved us some money. We did make three trips to the Thriftway store but only for a few items here and there. The store was always clean, plenty of parking, good customer service. Just keep in mind the prices might be more than what you are used to, and plan accordingly.

Didn't expect to find "real" coffee on my overnight trip to Forks on a recent jaunt to the Washington coast! Thoroughly enjoyed my usual americano to go on my way to Olympic National Park. Very well made. The blueberry muffin was tasty, too, and bill for both was less than 5 bucks! Can't beat that!

It's no secret that the Pacific Northwest is home to a vibrant culinary scene. And Creekside Restaurant is proud to be part of it, serving up fresh, local fare alongside breathtaking ocean views. Creekside's talented culinary team delights travelers of all ages with everything from breakfast favorites to seasonal seafood dishes to special events like wine pairing dinners. Whether you're recounting the day's adventures or fueling up for another exciting day, we think you'll enjoy Olympic National Park's signature dining experience. One way we're proud to distinguish ourselves is by showing that great meals and healthy dining experiences can, and should, be one and the same. We provide calorie counts on our menu and offer a variety of healthy meal options. Equally important, all meat, seafood, eggs, dairy, and produce we serve are free of hormones and steroids, and all our food is free of trans fats. Local sourcing is also very important to us. During the growing season, at least 60% of all our food and beverages are either sourced within 150 miles, are certified organic, or both. Even our wine selection is local - every wine we serve comes from the state of Washington. Operating in such a beautiful place, we know that our responsibility to our guests and to the environment extends far beyond our walls. We're a proud supporter of the National Park Service's Healthy and Sustainable Food Program. Creekside sources its seafood locally, and adheres to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guides for sustainability. Other key sustainability efforts include providing our used fryer oil to a maker of biodiesel, sending food and prep scraps to a local farm to use as pig feed, only serving water to guests when requested and recycling. Creekside is honored to be a Certified Green Restaurant.
We had dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was amazing!!! I almost licked my plate clean... we are overlooking the creek and ocean. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their meal. Drink and food options were good. I would skip the buckwheat pancakes..... not very tasty. Reservations were suggested, but needed only for busier time. Pretty quiet during our visit.

we were desperate for coffee so we stopped here. It's probably the best thing in Forks. The town is totally dead and the options for food dire. The coffee here was very good. I had an americano which was surprisingly good and my brother had straight espresso and he was also pleasantly surprised at its quality.

BBG is a full service Bar & Grill for adults 21 an over only. Entertainment, weekly karaoke on Friday nights at 9pm. Saturdays live music or DJ. We serve fresh House Made Clam Chowder and soups daily. Great fun friendly atmosphere!
Ate here three times during our extended winter fishing trip. Elk burger was the best I have had. It was well cooked, juicy, tender and well seasoned. Good bar food.

I orders the mushroom ravioli with a meatless sauce. The whole dish was more a watery sauce. Very small amount of ravioli and the dish was cold. But I saw pizza on other tables and they looked delicious. Maybe I just did an ordering mistake that day.

We both had a hamburger with fries (just different burgers). They were great and we left full. Its typical for a Drive-In/fast food building. Could use a little updating. The town is small and this seems to be a local favorite right on the main highway.

Unfortunately, we got the impression of the Olympic Peninsula that not so much emphasis is put on satisfying the customers. The tourists come either way and they have to eat somewhere ... this attitude unfortunately came upon us. Unfortunately, the In Place is also in this category. It was recommended by our motel and one evening we tried it, but unfortunately were disappointed. We were lucky to get a table before the rush hour. But then it really took a long time. They had too few waitresses, I only counted 2 and it was August, which I would still consider a high season. The people after us had to wait a long time for tables, because no one had time to clear the tables and clean them. The food was cheap, but below average. I would not eat here again.

When you start the 30 minute drive in to the Hoh Rainforest this is the only place to stop and get a snack or coffee. There is a bathroom but it is WAY back behind the building and you need a key to access. The snack section is very limited but welcome after a long day of hiking. There is a menu that has burgers and sandwiches and specialized coffee. The staff were friendly and all seating is outside under a covered porch. It was a great little place to stop and warm up with a coffee or chai tea.

We picked this restaurant based on Tripadvisor but were not impressed! But, food was eatable and did not cost much, 58 USD for four persons. Would I eat there again? Most likely not, but not sure other restaurants are better in Forks (based on Tripadvisor reviews)
