We came here for lunch with the family. We were greeted when we walked in the door. Sat quickly and drink order was taken. The place was clean, still a little hot cause they just opened and had not got the ac going yet. But that didn't take long to cool down. The food came and must say it was pretty good. The buffalo burger was cooked to med rare as i asked. That doesn't happen to often with burgers!!! The burger was delish!!! Onion rings were very good. Everybody's food was pretty tasty. They have a huge patio out back, great for putting back a few cold ones and eating some grub. The decor is cool. The bathrooms were clean. This is a great place to grab some lunch in Camino.......

The Forester is a quaint pub with great pub decor, it's warm inside even if it's winter cold outside. The Pub is located in its own Ceder mini-forest just about in the heart of Camino. Fall and Winter months may be the best time to visit the Forester as the food is hearty and delicious, and it warms you up. There is lots to choose from, both American (burgers, steaks...) to real German fare. Speaking of fair, the prices are very fair indeed. You won't be shocked, and there are small portions at $5 to $7 for the little ones, in this family friendly establishment.
I had the JaegerSchnitzel, the pork was pounded out tender, the breading was crispy pan fried, and the mushroom bacon gravy was pure delight. The gravy was brimming with mushrooms and bacon. The spaetzle were average package fare, but definitely cooked properly and good.  The Red Cabbage is an
appropriate side dish and it was delicious too.
My wife and son each had a portion of  crispy hot and flaky white Fish and
Chips. I had a bite, it was delicious. Nothing overly greasy here, just very tasty pub fare from a kitchen that clearly cares about what it puts out.
You can only deduct a point for some decor drawbacks such as annoying lights on the arcade games in the pool room and it can get a bit crowded in the pub room, but overall, this place is popular with locals and valley visitors alike. I think the German food makes it exceptional. The schnitzel is a winner. It makes you want to come back. A good selection of American beers, and a few German selections like Warsteiner make for a full German experience if you want to transport yourself into the full Bavarian experience. You won't find much German in these parts, so you best just stop at the Forester Pub and Grill and dig in!

After an afternoon of Lava Cap tasting, we were definitely in need of sustenance.  Decided to try the Forester after reading the reviews on Yelp.  Full of locals, everyone is super friendly as we made our way to the patio deck to
enjoy the warm evening weather.  
The four of us ordered a variety of dinner items ranging from chicken Caesar salad, meatloaf and stroganoff with schnitzel.  Not only did we get the orders quickly, it was piping hot and DELICIOUS.  Everything was amazing and the servings are large and plentiful.   Don't try to cut calories here, just enjoy it for what it is.  Buttery, hearty and old-school tasty.  The waitstaff are very friendly and we felt like we had been regulars for years.  
We will make this a regular stop this fall and winter from now on.  Can't believe we missed this place for so many years...shame on us!After an afternoon of Lava Cap tasting, we were definitely in need of sustenance.  Decided to try the Forester after reading the reviews on Yelp.  Full of locals, everyone is super friendly as we made our way to the patio deck to enjoy the warm evening weather.

We  found this place by accident while on our Apple Hill adventure.  After trying to find a place to have lunch and having no luck, a wrong turn led us to this place.
It's a small and cozy pub-like restaurant with low ceilings, booths, wooden
tables, an outdoor eating area, and a wooden bar.
The drink menu has a list of beers and wines from local wineries and breweries which was nice.  My dad wanted to order some of the All American Lager by Jack Russell but unfortunately they were all out of it.  He had to make a different
choice but enjoyed it anyway.  
The menu offers a few traditional pub grub selections as well as sandwiches and a a few other entrees.  I chose to go with the beef stroganoff off of the pub grub list.  It started me off with a small but delicious cup of clam chowder soup served with a pack of wheat crackers.  The soup itself was tasty and had a unique flavor to it.  Different than any other clam chowders I've tasted!  
My beef stroganoff was served over fettuccine noodles with a side of mixed veggies.  The noodles were thick and tasty and the beef and mushroom sauce over the top was good as well.  There were chunks of tender beef as well as
huge chunks of mushrooms.  
My dad ordered the fish and chips and said that the fish was a little overcooked, but that's pub food for you.  My mom ordered a sandwich with a side of rice pilaf.  My boyfriend ordered a sandwich with a side of coleslaw and my friend Patrick ordered a hamburger.  It was basic food, but very tasty and hit the spot.
 We were starved!  
The waitress we had was good and on the ball and took and served our order promptly.  This is a cute little place to stop and get a bite to eat if you're in the
area.  The prices were very reasonable.  The area it's located in is very
quaint and nice to look around at if you have the time.  It is also only walking distance from a cute place called Mill View which is where we walked to
afterwards to grab some delicious Apple Hill desserts from.  Score!
