I had the Mediterranean Chicken which was excellent. This dish was prepared with spinach, sun dried tomatoes blended and cooked perfectly. My wife had a bacon cheeseburger and loved it. The house chips were very good and the sweet potato fries were some of the best we have ever had.

I was very impressed with this little gem. Everyone in our group was very pleased with both the selections offered and with what they ordered. I had some delicious grilled Grouper which was perfectly prepared and a great light lunch! The service was just excellent. I would recommend this to anyone in the area.

Enjoyed the grilled grouper. The side of penne pasta which was supposed to be small was large enough to be a meal in itself. Very tasty. My friend had spaghetti. It was okay. But not spectacular. Glad we went. Almost forgot - the salad with the house Italian dressing was wonderful!!!

After moving to Crossville from the Chicago area a year ago we have been to Forte's three times. It has been touted as the best place in Crossville. It's just OK. The Salmon was over done, the chicken was dry, the pork chops were OK. The service was good and the staff was pleasant. Prices were not too bad. If... More

We have a golf outing every year in May. The last few years we have played golf around the Crossville area so we have supper on Saturday night at Forte's. We have had 16 to 20 golfers there for supper , and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food is very good and so is the wine selection.

Typically Forte's isn't open on Thursday, but they hosted our group for a private reception and there's really nothing bad to say. The ladies serving it all were friendly and the food was good. It's been a long time since I've had a ribeye that tasty and I've eaten at some much more expensive places I've enjoyed less. The canoli... More

We visit Crossville for the express purpose of eating lunch at Forte's. It is 1 1/2 hr. from our home but well worth the pretty drive to get there. The food is excellent, very reasonably priced, and the staff is friendly and anxious to please. Everyone in our party ate grouper the day we were there. All of their fish... More
