Best food in town. Never a bad meal. The service is very good. I must say tho, that it can be a little noisy if crowded.

Love the ambiance, the food and the staff. Friendly, accommodating and efficient. Some of the best prime rib we've had anywhere. The shrimp bisque and onion soup were terrific and the lemon cake was superb. It's now one of our favorite place to go.

Delicious steaks and pasta dishes. The shrimp cocktail was fabulous. They also have chicken and fish meals. Specials everyday.

Very good prime rib with friends, the location was a surprise and worth the drive for a change of pace. The muscles and sauce were outstanding providing just the right hint of spicy. Outstanding value when you consider only $9.00 corkage fee. The Manhattan I ordered was nicely done. Look forward to returning in the future. Which is always the... More

Good variety of dishes, meat, fish (my favorite), pastas. Their salad was well presented. I am a health conscious cook and diner and enjoyed my dining experience. I moved to Crossville 2008 after traveling the 4-corners of USA, so have many dining experiences. Quality food for the price.

It was hard to find something I wanted but settled on the pork loin. It was good but not as tender as I had hoped it would be. I wish they would add more choices to their menu, especially some that are more plain.

We are from out of state where much better quality food is the norm. We ate here a couple of times with relatives from Crossville who do like this restaurant. But if you are health conscious and used to superb dining for your money, you might feel cheated here.

I have been here to eat about six times. I either get the cheese ravioli with homemade sauce or the fried chicken salad. They are both excellent choices

Every time I visit crossville for court I hope it last long enough to allow me to eat at Forte's. Upon the recommendation of my law partner I had the chicken on the square. To put it simply this dish is amazing. The sauce is an asiago cheese cream sauce and I had them bring me a spoon because I... More
