Great place to eat. Crowded at lunch time since it is across the (side) street of the courthouse. Parking may be a little bit of an effort, but the food and service is great. If you want an elegant dinner to celebrate a special event,...More

We would have missed this restaurant if we had not ask a local lady about her favorite restaurants. This was not on the main road, but just off on a side street. It was very worth the effort to find it as the food, portions...More

Excellent food and very good service. There are several specials each day for lunch and also for dinner. Open on Friday and Saturday for dinner. Steaks are excellent, salads very fresh, full bar, and very good desserts. I definitely recommend a meal at Forte's.

Took my husband here with our two children for his birthday. I wouldn't say it's really a "family friendly" restaurant if your children are rowdy. I think it's more along the lines of a fine dining restaurant. The prices are definitely upscale but the food...More

We visited Forte's for lunch and the food was amazing! Being Gluten-free, it is often hard to find flavorful options, but they exceeded that expectation!! We thought we were too full for dessert, but we couldn't help ourselves. Forte's on the Square is a MUST...More

What else can we say? The service was great. The food was fantastic. It was an overall joy. The homemade zucchini corn chowder soup was out of this world. The parmesan crusted chicken with tortellini and tomato cream sauce was too good for words. We...More

They do not have a children's menu, but they are very accommodating & you shouldn't have a problem. Remember, they are only open for dinner on Friday & Saturday. Lunch is OK Tues-Sat.
