Nice place for a business dinner.

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 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 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.

This use to be a Tony Roma's restaurant. When they opened Forbes , there was a lot of hype about Kobe beef, etc. The prices were extremely high, but we decided to try. Food was OK, but considering the price, it was not close to worth it. Jump ahead a few years, we decided to give it another try, wow... More

The wife and I went with friends. We had been there many years ago and enjoyed the experience. Went there this time and ENJOYED the experience. Our waiter, Antonio and his right hand man Chris were on their A game. Service was outstanding. The martini was a martini, not half a martini at a full martini price as is becoming... More

Let me start with something positive. We recently celebrated our son's birthday here and I must say our waitress was kind. Unfortunately, I should let my voice drop after that. My son ordered prime rib and was told they didn't have any left (it was only 7:00?) He then ordered a rib steak, it came out squishy raw, not even... More

The best steak I have ever had is the Forbes Mill "Blackened Ribeye" in Danville! I never order ribeye but our son-in-law advised us to try it here.....and now we order it every time we dine here! Tender steak with blue cheese, caramelized onions, demi-glace, mashed potatoes. Yummmm! Really, really good!

We celebrated a 40th birthday at Forbes Mill. The food was excellent, the atmosphere, with the service were wonderfull. The service personnel were helpful and thoughtful, yet never overbearing.It is the kind of place one will always come back to just for the happy feeling that the evening generates .
