My friend and I visited before seeing a show. We came around 5pm before the crowd really got there. We had Italian food, and it was fine. I'd say it was average at best. Our service was rough. We never received refills for our drinks through our appetizer, main course or desserts. A manager even came to our table, where... More

Never a bad meal and always something a bit unique in their fare! Can't miss at this restaurant. We had steaks and another time fish dishes and always felt we were getting our money's worth. We call it the best in Crossville, TN.

They offer daily special plus the main menu but are only open for lunch during the week and dinner is only open Friday and Saturday. Best to make reservations. Food was good but at night it can get so loud you can't hear yourself think.

We specifically looked for Fortes when we came to visit Crossville and we are so glad we did! The food was amazing and our waiter, Tyrel was very attentive. I am gluten-free and there were many options. We were very pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices were. The over all experience was great and we will definitely be back!

We were visiting the area & were looking for a good restaurant. We took a chance on Forte's & were pleasantly surprised. There were four of us & every single one of us had great food. We walked in without a reservation & were seated immediately. Daniel, our server, was great. I would definitely recommend this place for good food... More

We ate lunch with friends. The lunch menu had lots of choices and prices were very reasonable. We all got something different and everyone was well pleased with the food. We are gluten intolerant and had no trouble finding options. We were there for three hours talking and they did not rush us. Waitress was excellent.. Would go back often... More
