Good restaurant with fair prices. Not excellent but good. Service friendly and short wait for food. If your looking for a quick meal this is the spot.

We were taken to the restaurant by friends who lived in the area. We were there for lunch and had ample options for even the most selective of the family. Would recommend for anyone who is traveling through the area.

The Forrest Lake Steakhouse is a must-visit restaurant destination for my husband and I whenever we visit Grand Rapids. Over the years the menu, food quality, decor and standard of service have changed very little. However, that's a positive! The decor is perhaps looking a...More
