I eat here often as it is downtown near my satellite office and also because it's so good. Great service and helpful staff with good recommendations. Good portions with two sides with entrees. Decent prices for lunch

The food here is very good. It gets very busy, so the service may get a little slow. It is a little pricey, so it is a place that I would tend to go to for a special occasion.

Went to Forte's for my birthday gift from my hubby. Made reservations as instructed and had a great time. Very noisy as others pointed out. Not for a first date for sure. Filet I ordered was cut with a fork! Great food.

My husband and I had dinner last night at Forte's in Crossville TN. Gia was our fantastc server. The NY strip steak with Jack Daniel's sauce was fabulous and the prime rib was excellent. Highly recommend your restaurant. Love the history of the old building, the beautiful ceiling and brick walls. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience for us... More

My friend and I visited before seeing a show. We came around 5pm before the crowd really got there. We had Italian food, and it was fine. I'd say it was average at best. Our service was rough. We never received refills for our drinks through our appetizer, main course or desserts. A manager even came to our table, where... More

Never a bad meal and always something a bit unique in their fare! Can't miss at this restaurant. We had steaks and another time fish dishes and always felt we were getting our money's worth. We call it the best in Crossville, TN.

They offer daily special plus the main menu but are only open for lunch during the week and dinner is only open Friday and Saturday. Best to make reservations. Food was good but at night it can get so loud you can't hear yourself think.
