My family and I have visited Forbes Miller Steakhouse twice in the last few months and both times it was exceptional. The quality of the meats is excellent and the preparation brought out the flavors well. They offer both entrees (with included sides) and steak...More

Went for a business dinner after an afternoon of wine-tasting and relationship-building. It was the perfect cap for the day. Filet Oscar was outstanding. Cooked perfectly. Sides were fresh and tasty. And the Pappy. Don't forget the Pappy.

We had been to this restaurant on a couple other occasions. This time wasn't quite as good. Food was good and service ample. Seemed the restaurant has developed an air of complacency. We can skate by on our name rather than offer the little bit...More
