Recently while traveling through Forked River I noticed the former site of the old Forked River Buffet however it was cleared and fenced in. I am just seeing this? Funny how sometimes you just don’t notice things. The former Forked River Buffet had been closed for some time, but now it demolished and cleared.

At one point the old Forked River Buffet was very popular, but over time it seemed to fade and eventually it ended up dark and never re-opened.

So now the question is what is next for the site of the former Forked River Buffet? Is there already a plan or is it just waiting for someone to come along and build a new business at this location?

This location is obviously along a very busy section of Route 9 and has a lot of traffic and potential customers. Since the previous eatery didn’t continue, you must wonder if a future business should be a restaurant? Although a different style with a new building could make a difference.
