The menu at Forestview Lanes is on par with any other restaurant in the area. Haven't had a bad meal there. During the summer you can enjoy the outside while you dine or when it gets cold the doors go down and you enjoy the...heated patio or eat in.More

Whether you like bowling, games or volley ball, this place has it all. In summer you can sit outdoors and watch or participate in the many volley ball activities. If you like bowling, you can be in a league or just bowl on your own....Either way, it's fun and a safe place for small children.More

We've been visiting Forest View for many years and appreciate Kenny and all he's done to to be creative and stay in business during the worst times. Prior to the bar/restaurant updates 2020, FV was a quieter place to eat and most dishes were scratch....The bar is now the destination and 2020 food has not always delivered the handmade quality it did previously. In our last two visits, FV was extremely packed in and we ended up leaving, as we could not physically distance from other patrons.More

I got a pizza to go and it was not very good. It was square cut into square pieces. There were enough toppings on it but there was hardly any sauce or cheese. I would not buy the pizza again even if there was a...half price special going on.More

We went for dinner recently and tried the garlic parmasean chicken chunks--WOW are they good!! Really good! We also tried the bacon and pepperoni pizza which was also excellent! Went back a few nights later and had the burgers and they were excellent! The hand...cut fries were great as well. We will definitely be going here often!More

after eating here. Eight of us ate here after our Monday morning meeting. One week later, when we met again, five of us had serious head congestion/colds. We all sit at different tables during our meetings, so I think it had to come from the...chef or perhaps the server. Too bad, because food was actually pretty good. Service was really slow.More

We are here visiting family from Florida. We always make a point to visit Forest View Bar and Grill during our visits. It is a great, relaxed bar and grill with an excellent menu. It is far from the typical bar food. Everything is made...fresh and it tastes it! The owner is very involved with his business and we love seeing him reinvest in his business. It shows! It is a dog and child friendly location. They have an excellent selection of craft beers including local brews! Keep up the good work! See you again on our next visit!More

This place probably has the best craft beer selection in the area. Went there for a holiday gathering. Food is on the upper end of bar food, but if you seek awesome craft beer, you will find it here. Founder's CBS on draft at Christmastime.

We went recently with our 3 year old twins. The staff was welcoming and accommodating...both the gentleman behind the counter and the waitress. We ordered a fruit bowl and I can honestly say it was the best we’ve ever had. There was cantaloupe, raspberries and...strawberries. Talk about fresh! My girls had a great time and was a great first experience! We will definitely be back.More

Met friends for an evening out. The drinks were good. Service was mediocre. Our friends first beer off the tap was flat. He went to bottle. He asked for another and the waitress forgot it. The Mgr asked if we needed anything and our friend...asked to get his beer he ordered 15 minutes ago. Everyone got their sandwiches except mine had to be remade as the waitress entered the wrong one. When it came out the homemade chips were burnt. The chicken pear sandwich had an odd flavor like something was bad. The bread was soggy. My husband had the same and his tasted completely different. When the bill came it was wrong. It might be a good place for drinks but I found the food not worth what we paid. Leaving we had to walk through people smoking just outside the door. They need to find another area for these smokers to go. Someplace away from the entrance.More

We drove 45 minutes to visit ForestView because an acquaintance organized a craft beer gathering at this location. My review is based only on our experience with the indoor bar/restaurant area, not the activities, because we were not there for those. ForestView is clearly a...very busy entertainment complex. They offer open and league bowling, volleyball, golf, and special events. They are adding other activities in the future. There is an outdoor bar and seating area which features 20 taps, as well as food. Indoor, which is where we landed, there is an average size dining room and bar, which leads into the adjoining bowling area. The indoor bar has 48 taps, and they feature many delicious selections. Driving from Ohio, it was nice to try several beers that are not sold in our state. The beer menu has a good description of each beer, pricing for various sizes, and growler fills, if applicable. Beer flights are available, and they are served 4 at a time on a wood tray. Our beer experience was very positive. I wish I could say the same about the food. We were told that the menu had just been revamped. It's mostly your typical bar fare, although there were some new additions, including several lamb dishes, which were not printed up yet. Two of us ordered chicken wings, which were supposed to be a pound. They were very small wings and not to anyone's liking in our party of four. The bartender claimed they were made with Franks Red Hot Sauce, which we love, but something else was going on, because they were so salty, they were inedible. I ate about 4 and asked to see the menu again. About 20 minutes later I ordered a cheese dip with chorizo and tortilla chips. Basically this was chorizo with some cheese melted on it. Although not what I was expecting, it was tasty. My friends ordered pizza and a burger. No complaints on the burger, but the pizza crust had no flavor according to my companion. Our bartender/server was clearly overwhelmed with taking care of the bar and getting food out. She seemed annoyed when I told her the wings were not good and I wanted to order something else. My general feeling is, this would be a good place to hang out for some drinks, but skip the food. And, obviously, if you're into sports, they've got you covered!More
