Great Service and Very Good Food !! Our Server was Tyrel A ( I believe ) and he was so nice and very friendly !! A local restaurant in Crossville and was crowded on the Friday night that we were there. We did make reservations. If we are ever back in the area, we would go here again !!

Being from out of town and looking for some good food and a good libation, I took TripAdvisor's No.1 restaurant in Crossville. Set in downtown Crossville most likely in a days gone by retail location, the atmosphere was very nice. Lots of brick and wood. We arrived early but without a reservation we were sitting immediately however our table of... More

Forte's is the best dining in Crossville. You would think that would earn you five stars, but the bar is not set to high. However, that being said it is a quality eating option with a varied menu. It is the place all of the locals eat at lunch or dinner when they want a better quality and atmosphere. The... More

We were looking for a local restaurant with real food and Forte's hit the spot. Our waiter (Stephan?) was really personable and attentive. The food was good and served in generous portions. A nice loaf of bread came with dinner. We were happy to have 2 sides with our entrees as well. One tiny suggestion might be to have some... More

We went on a Friday night during lent, so our options were the seafood dishes, or anything without meat. The grouper was bad. The Downtown shrimp was only ok. They tried too hard with the amount of garlic in the sauce. The spaghetti (without the meatballs) was not our son's favorite. Our youngest, who could eat meat, did not enjoy... More

Had a very pleasant evening here with my sister. Looking for a milder dish, I ordered the Mediterranean Chicken, which arrived with a salad, pasta, broccoli, cheese, and way more food than I could eat. It was delicious...and like most Italian dishes, the leftovers I took home were even better the next day. HOWEVER...I believe I missed the best dish... More

Had a group of 10. We all had nothing but great comments on the food. The dishes we had were: Tortellini, veal parmisian, shrimp alfredo, city chicken, fishermans platter, baked grouper, and tuna salad. All were very good! The best comments came from the tuna diners. A real plus....our server, Julitta (AKA Juju) was fantastic! Have never had a more... More
