Delicious Food and Wonderful People

Fortes is a wonderful dining experience in Crossville. The food is consistently delicious and the family is so supportive of our community. I'm very proud to say that Crossville has a dining experience like Fortes.

Service, atmosphere and prices are make Forte ' s the perfect night out. The food is prepared to perfection. I had the signature seafood dish and my wife had the chicken on the square. Recommend making reservations.

This is one of best and most consistent places in Crossville. The menu is somewhat limited, but the specials vary from day to day and week to week. I would take visitors here with confidence that the meal would be good. I especially like lunch. They have home made chips available.

As a retired Executive Chef I hold my standards very high. I lived here for a few years a while back and never got to experience Fortes but was aware of them. I figured very small town how good could it be? Well right after the holidays of 2014 I was asked out on a date and am very tired... More

We had dinner here both Friday and Saturday nights - the only nights they are open. The food was the best we found in the Crossville/Fairfield Glade area. All the staff were friendly and informative about the area - guess they knew we weren't locals. It is a bit noisy because of the tin ceiling but after 7:30 it begins... More

On April 30, 2015 my husband and I attended a Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre at Forte's. What an enjoyable experience. The doors opened promptly at 5:30 P.M. and you were taken to an upstairs dining area. You were escorted to you seat by the actors and while you were seated they would wonder by your table in character and converse.... More

Went on a Saturday night. Had to wait about 20 minutes so had a drink at the bar. Pours were generous and the bartender was extremely friendly. She gave us some great ideas of things to see/do while in the area. When we were seated at our table, again our server was very friendly. I had the swordfish special wich... More

We attended the April 30th Cumberland County Playhouse sponsored Murder Mystery Dinner Theater production of "Dealt a Deadly Hand" at Forte's in their upper room. Doors opened exactly at 5:30 PM. You were escorted upstairs to your table by one of the costumed actors. Cash bar cocktail hour from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. Then salads were served at your table... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by folks in Fairfield Glade and they didn't steer us wrong. The food was amazing, plentiful, and the service outstanding. This old building had charm and when we asked about the history of the building, the waitress brought a paper that listed the history. And what a history it has! You seriously don't want... More

It's a was off of I-40 but worth it. the menu is well put together and there's something for everyone. I had the salmon salad on fresh greens and it was delicious. The most surprising thing to me and my guests was the pricing. There is no way to get this quality of food anywhere else and at those prices... More
