Our meal was well prepared, beef tips melted in my mouth! Excellent fresh salad. Sevice was quick and unobtrusive. Was there when needed but did hover, which how I like it. Loved the older building in dowtown Crossville.

Great food, and great atmosphere. I love to go to Forte's on the Square!! The brick walls and tin ceilings are so beautiful, and the food is defiantly scrumptious

Definitely worth the money. We had a great hostess and waitress. Meal was great, and a very nice atmosphere with lots of local history about the building.

This is definitely our favorite restaurant in Crossville. Love the French onion soup and Caesar salad. Croutons are the best anywhere! Fried shrimp is great as all the steaks. Love the desserts also. Best waiter is Daniel. Our experience is dampen when he is not working. Love the old building and ambiance. I am a fan!

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.
