The Forklift is a pleasant sit-down restaurant we tried while entertaining out of town visitors at the Snowbird summer activities. It is conveniently located on the main plaza area, and was a good "landmark" spot to meet up for lunch. The menu choices were pretty varied, several sandwiches and salads. The restaurant staff was helpful, accommodating a very picky eater... More

Went to breakfast about 10am on a Sunday for convenience as we were spending the day at Oktoberfest and enjoying Snowbirds activities. Our server was really nice and attentive but the kitchen was so slow. It was busy, but not crowded - maybe half full. Our waiter apologized for the wait, twice, but not sure why the food was so...

On a recent trip to Snowbird, Utah I had lunch at the Fork Lift Grill. It is a typical ski resort restaurant with minimal furnishings and near the lift that takes people up the mountain. I was there in summer but there were plenty of people milling around and eating in the restaurant. The wait staff was loud and not... More

A great lunch for a family of 12 celebrating Papa's 70th birthday. Gabriel's superb service and the other helpful staff made such a memorable experience . Sandwiches were served first to the younger children, followed by great hamburgers, chicken panini , French dip and patty melts with delicious fries to the adults. We felt like we were in a tree...

Today we attempted to have a late breakfast / early lunch at the forklift. We were seated immediately and then waited 15 minutes without being acknowledged again. During this 15 minutes many of the staff including what appeared to be management made eye contact. Finally decided to leave. On the way out mentioned this to the management / hostess. No... More

Overpriced and under performing. The kitchen was absurdly slow every time over several years now. 7 dollar cold and stiff frozen pretzel without salt. That's just stale bread you know? After an hour of waiting, 15 dollar breakfast of eggs, raw English muffin, and a piece of lunch meat. I'm quite done.

The Forklift is a great restaurant in Snowbird Center. We ate breakfast here every morning before skiing and the food & service were fantastic. You have the option of eating lunch out on the deck which looks like fun. We were especially pleased with the the French toast plate (see pic) and the Eggs Your Way (2 eggs, bread of... More

We were lucky enough to cook most our meals while staying at the Iron Blosam at Snowbird, but of the couple of restaurants we visited at the mountain The Forklift was one of the best. We came here for lunch around 1:30 on Tuesday and it was completely full by 2:00. I had a great sandwich, chicken with pesto, and... More
