Had dinner with a group of five to celebrate an event and we were all delighted with Forbes Island. Everyone from the ferry captain to the wait staff was friendly and attentive.
The food was delicious. I had the crab and avacado appetizer and the filet -- both great. The short ribs and flat iron steak were a big hit with others in my party.
My nine year old son had a great time climbing the lighthouse and looking at all the cool maritime stuff. There's no kids menu, but they will make up pasta in different ways and grilled chicken, which was a big hit with my son. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. If your kids can sit still and be reasonably quiet at a restaurant, I think this is a great place for kids, with lots of unique and fun experiences.
Definitely check out the women's room in the captain's quarters.
