Very neat place. Enjoyed the food for the most part. Being from Texas, my idea of prime rib is not what they serve. It is more of a steak. Not as good as my husband's beef medallions or tornadoes. He liked his beef very much. The vegetables were fresh and delicious. It is VERY NOISY. Still we would go back.

This is apparently the lunch meeting place for local business people. Food is good with very good service. We would eat there again.

A friend had a surprise birthday party for me at Fortes. The staff was very accommodating and the food was excellent. I have also eaten here alone and was treated just as graciously. The menu is excellent. The building is an interesting historical building.

Always good food, pretty steady. Could change menu some as it's been the same for years. They do have several specials each day. Wait staff can be iffy especially for lunch, seems not enough staff at times.

The menu has some great non-typical options as well as the usual. The grilled salmon salad was wonderful. My husband said the sweet potato fries were the best he's ever had. We shared a piece of yummy coconut pie for dessert. Fabulous meal at a really reasonable price. Lunch portions still left us stuffed and were priced at $8-$9.

We heard about this restaurant from locals and went there to get dinner for a birthday celebration. We decided to make reservations for 5:00 not knowing how busy it would be. We arrived and were seated quickly and started enjoying our appetizers and salads. Glad we had reservations because the place was almost full 30 minutes later. I had the... More

Forte's was great! The Prime Rib was awesome and melted in your mouth! The Chicken Parmesan was terrific and the Lemon cake was great!
