Always Great to Stumble on to a Great Restaurant While Traveling

We were passing through Crossville around lunch time and noticed this quaint restaurant at the end of a short street and decided to give it a try. After all it was just lunch and how bad could it be.

We have enjoyed Forte's several times over the years. The first few times were in conjunction with Peavine Wine and Spirits and were wine dinners. They had great service and remarkable food from soup to nuts.

On our visits to Crossville we always return to Forte's at least once. This visit was excellent as usual. We will continue to visit as long as we can.

As out of towners, but frequent attendees of the Cumberland Co. Playhouse for many years, we somehow have missed Forte's. We won't make that mistake again. What a fabulous place! I had seen the restaurant advertised for the location of a Mystery Dinner Theatre the Playhouse was putting on a couple of months ago and had looked up the place... More

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
