Absolutely recommend Forte's

The atmosphere is great! The food is outstanding! Great menu and personable service. Reminds me of an expensive and chic restaurant in a metropolitan area.

We think that Forte's is the best restaurant in Crossville. We visit the area often and have eaten at many of its restaurants - many of its chain restaurants as well as local ones. This is by far the best and one we visit as often as possible. While the decor is not outstanding, it is pleasant. The staff is... More

During a visit to Crossville, I searched Trip Advisor for a place where we and 2 other couples could have dinner. Forte's came very highly recommended so we decided to give it a try. It is the nicest restaurant in town with delicious food. I had the Cheese Ravioli and Meatballs which was excellent. My husband had a 14 oz.... More

Amazing staff! Very accommodating to my husband and I plus our kids and my nieces and nephew we had with us. The food was wonderful. I got the chicken on the Square and ate every last bit! The broccoli soup was just how I would make it at home, wasn't just chunks of broccoli thrown in some cream...loved it! The... More

Forte's has the best steak in town. The only thing I do not like is the area to wait when waiting to be seated is to close to the front entrance.

This is by far the nicest restaurant in Crossville. The food is always excellent, the staff is great, the atmosphere is nice. It's a favorite of the locals, and a gathering place for special occasions. They are open for lunch Monday-Friday, and supper Friday & Saturday. They have great steaks and pasta, as well as daily specials. Everything is homemade.... More

My husband and I had dinner at Forte's on the Square in Crossville, TN on Friday night and it was very good. We had Seafood Symphony which was Sauteed Shrimp & Scallops served with Lobster Ravioli in a Creamy Crab Sauce. It came with a side salad or soup and the vegetable of the day. Would order this again.

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 were absolutely amazed at the quality of the food, especially for lunch. I had the Salmon Caesar Salad and I... More
