Tried it on a whim, it was great!

The restaurant was a little hard to find, but we were happy once we did! We both got specials and they were great. Service was fantastic.

Had a Christmas work dinner here and their steak is great! Prompt service, great food and a great dessert selection. They handled a group of 20 easily. I will definitely be returning.

The location of this restaurant may be its biggest asset. It is just across from the Cumberland County court house in Crossville. After having lunch and dinner at Forte's, I'm not that impressed with the quality of food but it is acceptable and will be making return visits in the future.

I was so impressed with the food that we came back 2 nights in a row. The food was amazing and the service was even better. I had the seafood symphony and it was amazing. I can't wait to come back again.

Enjoyed a nice dinner. The food was tasty and plentiful. Service was great! Atmosphere was bright, clean, open and airy, if a little noisy. We will go back.

I have been to Forte's several times and tried different menu items. There isn't anything there I don't LOVE! If you haven't tried this restaurant, you're really missing the best food around.
