We ate at The Forester on Saturday. As a non-vegan veggie, I was surprised that there was not a veggie option on the menu. But the side salad was very good; excellent romaine with red tomato and a little red onion. No iceberg lettuce. I ordered the grilled cheese and fries. The steak fries were hot and crispy outside/soft inside. Good bread and actual cheddar for the sandwich. Mother-in-law had the fried fish/shrimp combo and she said it was very good. Junior had the mashed potatoes, meatloaf, and vegetables. Husband shared and said the meatloaf was good and the potatoes had chunks, suggesting they were real, not reconstituted dry. I wasn't impressed with the Jack Russell beer I had, but that's not the Pub's fault. The pear strudel with ice cream was delicious. Having eaten in Placerville and experienced horrible touristy food (except for Z Pies!), I was very pleased. Nice atmosphere and good food for this level of dining. I was impressed that the menu suggested that adults with smaller appetites were welcome to order from the child's menu. Next time I am in town, I'll visit again.
