Are there plans for the old Forked River Buffet in Lacey Township
Recently, on a trip across the Forked River, I noticed the old site of the old Forked River Buffet, but it was cleared and fenced. I’m just seeing this? It’s funny how sometimes you don’t notice things. The old Forked River Buffet had been closed for a while, but now it has been demolished and cleaned up.
At one point the old Forked River Buffet was very popular, but over time it seemed to fade and ended up going dark and never reopened.

So now the question is what’s next for the site of the old Forked River Buffet? Is there already a plan or is it just waiting for someone to come and start a new business there?
This location is obviously along a very busy section of Route 9 and has a lot of traffic and potential customers. Since the previous restaurant did not continue, you must be wondering if a future business should be a restaurant? Although a different style with a new building could make a difference.
So to recap… now that the old Forked River Buffet site is cleared, what’s the plan? Is there already a plan for this location? Is this still pending for the future of this site? What do YOU think is needed in this section of Forked River? What would you put in this place? Let’s go through a few ideas and see what people think here in Ocean County.
