Farm-to-table
Owned by Chef Allen Hess, FORC brings farm to table in the heart of Waimea. FORC showcases a farm to table aspect by bringing fresh harvests from Farmers, the Ocean and Ranchers. By changing our menu seasonally, we are able to get creative with what Hawai’i has to offer us. Local style brunch items like our FORC signature sandwich, brown butter banana pancakes and our housemade bacon. Hearty seasonal dinner dishes like our Big Island grass fed beef, whole roasted fish, and Chef’s Hawaiian Meal. There are vegetarian, paleo and gluten free options too. Indulge more with special menus like happy hour and holiday menus. Sip on our award winning cocktails or sit down and soak in the best dining atmosphere.

    Terrific fresh catch which was Ono with a miso marinade on the evening we dined here. Accompanied by a cucumber salad and a fire roasted purple sweet potato. The mai tais were the best we’ve had. Nice decor, comfortable booths and super nice staff.

    The staff was warm and engaging. Chef spent at least half an hour visiting with us personally. Cuisine was hands down the best we experienced on the island.

    What an absolutely amazing experience. I had been wanting to try this restaurant for years and my fiancé and I finally went. Great service and some of the best beef we have ever had! My fiancé did the surf and turf special, while I had filet mignon . Both delicious and drinks were always very balanced.

    I was expecting more F (farm) , thinking vegetarian options. It was heavy on the R (ranch). Service was good - the waitress was friendly and attentive.
