Ok, so the food is also really good but definitely one of the better wine lists in town. Great bar and dining room experience and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable!

We had dinner here with some friends and Sat at one of the large booths. We had appetizers, cocktails, entrees and dessert. Our waiter was very attentive and wonderful. We enjoyed ourselves, but thought the food was pretty mediocre. The ahi tuna poke and seafood pasta were bland, and the steaks were really salty. The chocolate gelato with fruit was... More

Ate here for dinner last night with two of my colleagues. I started with the beet salad which was the perfect size and very tasty. All 3 of us ordered the fillet which was good and cooked correctly, I asked for medium rare. I ordered the creamed spinach for my side, it was bland and very watery. We also ordered... More

They are still using paper table clothes. It's unbelievable in an expensive place as this they cannot afford linen clothes :-(

Great for a special occasion or date night. The steaks are awesome, the prices are fair, and they have more than enough on their menu to please everyone. Beside steak, they have a great appetizer platter. Oysters are excellent!

I've wanted to like this restaurant because it's close by and like supporting the local community. I've been here twice and both times found the steak not to be the prime caliber for the prices charged. Nothing stood out except the nice atmosphere.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here this evening. I'm visiting from the U.K. and this was my first experience of the excellent American service I've always heard about. The steak has now gone to the top of my 'best steak ever list' and the creamed spinach side was gorgeous. They were very good about us chatting long after they'd closed....sorry chaps... More

My husband and I have dined here many times. The food is always the best quality, fresh, and served right out of the kitchen. I have to say we've never had a bad meal. Service is excellent, very friendly, and accommodating staff. Definitely recommend

We went to Forbes Mill to celebrate a birthday. We were promptly seated at the time of our reservation. Our waiter was very attentive. Food was excellent. I had the prix fix special which consisted of a filet, bacon wrapped scallop and a strip steak. My wife had the salmon. This restaurant was better than any of the well known... More
