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

Thanks for your review! We understand and appreciate your feedback. We have been working hard to improve the experience overall and have faced many struggles during the pandemic. Our menu is made fresh daily, if you ever have anything that does not meet your expectations,...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

Kevin, Sorry to hear you had a bad experience and didn't like your pizza. Did you call and talk to a manager or ask us to have it re-made for you? We would have been happy to do so or if you called, we could...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

Thanks for your review! I am sorry to hear that people in your group became ill. We did not have any other reports of any team members or customers report anything like this. (It could be something random and could have been from another location...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

We recently tried the restaurant area and was amazed at how goid the food was and the prices are very reasonable. We have been back twice since. This will definately be a regular place for us. Only down fall is, a couple of the waitress's...are non-attentive.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
