The Forest Nook Restaurant:

Why cook when you are on vacation? Hang up the apron and enjoy a delicious homemade meal at The Forest Nook restaurant in Cook Forest, PA, where guests have the option to dine inside or outside on the deck under the umbrella tables beneath the trees.

The Forest Nook restaurant makes many meals from scratch. The extensive menu consists of appetizers, hand-tossed pizza, soups and salads, burgers, sandwiches, various dinners and incredible homemade desserts.

Dinners feature steaks, ribs, roast beef, turkey, and pasta dishes, with great fish fry options on Fridays. Desserts are made daily and range from homemade bread pudding with vanilla praline sauce to coconut cake, peanut butter fudge sundaes, Toll House pie, and cheesecake. Wine, beer and cocktails are served as well as refreshing soft drinks and specialty coffees. Enjoy a limoncello lemonade on the porch or have a latte with a piece of cheesecake.

Before or after your meal, venture next door for a souvenir or a gift for someone back home. The Nook Nacs gift shop is located next to the restaurant where you will find hand-painted benches, bird houses, painted gourds, hand crafted jewelry, pottery, handmade cards and wood crafts.

The Forest Nook restaurant and the Nook Nacs gift shop are located at 3121 Forest Rd., Vowinckel, PA. We are open Memorial Day through Labor Day.


We have six packs to go and serve local wine

So come sit back, relax and enjoy!

As always, we strive to do our best, but nothing is perfect.
