I had diner at Forbes Mill Steakhouse quite a few times already. Every time I found the staff to be attentive and the food to be quite good. They serve typical american style skeahouse fine which is just fine when you want to eat half a ton of juicy beef. We once had a little problem on one request (I... More

Whenever I'm looking for a great dining experience, Forbes Mill consistently delivers. I particularly enjoy their set menu in which you get an appetizer, 3 small entrees and a dessert. Their steak is exceptional and my kids and I love the mac & cheese.

Last night was the Valentines Day Massacre at Forbes Mill. They put so many tables in the dining room (about double normal), that getting to and from your table was like navigating a maze at a Halloween corn field. The service was decent, especially for Valentines Day. We started with the oysters on the half shell, and they were warm... More

This is fine dining at it's best, the food and service are excellent and the atmosphere is great. However, portions are a bit small for those with a big appetite and prices are a little steep but this is how many high end establishments work. If you want to impress a date or just have a meal that's a cut... More

Best service of any steak house around - very attentive. Steaks arrived and were cooked exactly as ordered. I have a sulfur allergy (cannot eat any alium products i.e. garlic , onions, leeks, shallots etc.as they are very high in sulfur) and the waiter was knowledgable about that situation and went out of his way to be sure nothing was...

I was here recently for a drink (or two) at the bar for happy hour. We had the fish tacos which were delicious. I had a refreshing lemon drop and my friend enjoyed wine -- a big list delivered on an iPad. The bartender was personable and friendly. We enjoyed the ambience, quiet enough to talk. If you are looking... More

Great steak selection, oysters were excellent. Service very good although they brought the wine list on an ipad which i'm not a fan of. Wines were pricey but good selection and overall expensive but largely worth it.

A very good steakhouse in Danville. After cocktails somewhere else we came into this restaurant (with reservations), were seated, and I ordered a glass of Cab that they recommended. We shared some very nice fried calamari as an appetizer. For the main course I ordered the bone-in ribeye. It came out as ordered, a juicy medium rare, and nicely seasoned.... More

Eight of us dined at Forbes Mill for my Son's birthday. When I made the reservation, they asked if it was a special occasion and had special menus commemorating the event. Nice touch. We had our 4 and 6 year old grand kids with us and the staff crafted a fine meal of chicken fingers and french fires for the... More
