Really good but overpriced

The steaks are amazingly high quality and flavorful. Parking is ample. Eating in the elegant bar is also an option. Very expensive.

Ambiance, food, steak, service, Forbes Mill has it all! What a great place in Danville. The filet and ribeye were awesome. Forbes Mill serves Certified Angus Beef, and ages it. The sides are equally as good, steak fries, baked potatos, veggies. Great wine list. The dining room, backed by a full bar, means your evening out will be complete. ,parking... More

This used to be in the old Tony Roma's location in the Danville Livery. The decor was tasteful and comfortable. I had a feeling it was going to be a great experience when we sat down and were presented with customized menus. The took the time to print "Happy 26th Anniversary" and our names at the top. A really nice... More

We visited on a busy Saturday evening, and even so, had awesome steaks and desserts. The wine recommendation was spot-on, and the service was outstanding.

Our meal was very good, but I have to say that the filet mignon was the highlight of the meal. It was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth--so tender and succulent. The accompanying mashed potatoes and veggies were very tasty. The house salad was fine, but nothing... More

I was taken to Forbes Mill for my birthday dinner and it was terrific! The hostess knew it was my birthday and greeted me with a "happy birthday". White linen tablecloth and napkins. My menu had my name on it! And then we got to the food. Perfectly seared Ahi tuna for an appetizer, followed by an equally yummy beet... More

I had a business dinner here last week and the atmosphere and noise level were perfect. The food and the service were excellent as well. I had the sea bass and it was extremely well prepared. Everyone else had steak and really enjoyed it.

I ordered two things and my sister another. The steak, Jambalya and Seared Ahi Tuna. All three were the best I can remember. The tuna was perfect and the Jambalaya was even better. The waiter was from New Orleans and told me it was good...never thought it could be that good at a steakhouse. It will be my dinner place... More

The steaks are really nice and juicy. A bit over priced. But delicious and great quality. Side dishes weren't too inventive. In a nice open air mall in Danville, near great shopping.

Forbes Mill is a high quality steakhouse that offers a large variety of foods. The quality and service are very good. The atmosphere is quiet. It's nice to have this type of restaurant in our local area.
