success on the river
I had a great ribeye at a great price. My friend had a reasonably tasty chicken pot pie, a little strong on the seasoning.Forrester's is fairly new and I hope, keeps getting better; a great location on the river which should keep people coming to the area that Toledo needs to be vibrant and survive. The prices are very reasonable and the drinks are good.

Best Steak House .. Hands Down!
The front desk at Maumee Bay State Park recommended this place over another local steak house that we were familiar with, and we are so glad that he did. It was hands down the best filet we have had in a long time. The place was bustling and our server a little stressed, but we were in no hurry and just soaked up the ambiance. While we couldn't score an outside table, we sat next to a huge window with an unobstructed view of the river. Oh, and we were extremely surprised by the very reasonable prices. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Place to Celebrate
The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make our little "retirement" gathering special.

Toledo's Best View
We had so much fun sitting on the patio, listening to the music , watching familes dancee and the boats pull up. It was like a mini vacation! Our server brought us hot pretzet sticks with beer cheese because it was my birthday and the service only got better from there with thick steaks and fresh perch! Everything was wonderful as we decided to take a walk walk and see the geese.

Celebrated the 4th of July
Very nice experience. Wait staff was new and not real experienced. Appetizers Flatbread $8 was well rec'd. Someone even delivered an extra order of onion rings, since the kitchen had an extra. Very surprised to find one of our favorite CA wineries - Cakebread. Price was about $15 cheaper than other local restaurants. All guests pleased with their meals.

LOOKING FOR GOOD FOOD?
This is the place. Expensive but worth it. Service was first class, treated like royalty. A visually appealing setting, if difficult to find for first-timers. Music was very good and loud. Would definitely return. Give the Bananas Foster a try for dessert - outstanding.

We headed over to Forrester's for the first time before a concert downtown and had a wonderful dinner and drinks out on the patio. The weather was perfect and sunny and the view of the river was very calming. We very much enjoyed our strawberry mango margaritas and the food was delicious. It was a great way to start off the night!

Nice location on the river,
Nice location on the river, good wine selections. Steak was only so-so.

We had good food and a good time. But they need to get shades that pull down on the windows because of the evening sun needs to be blocked from patrons eyes.

Great evening out
Eight of us girls went out for an evening of food and conversation. Our server kept up with us. The meal I had -- ranch chicken corn chowder -- which I thought was soup was to die for. I really loved it. We had a round table so we could talk and have a relaxing evening.

Seats were too close to bar
We were too close to the bar and the noise was loud at times and it was difficult to talk to someone across the table.

Food, service, etc was all
Food, service, etc was all very good and everyone was very accommodating. They really need new shades to keep the sun out of your eyes while eating. If I wanted sun I would have eaten outside

excellent food and service
Walking in I did not think this place would be more than average. Once seated I thought the atmosphere and view was excellent. I was very surprised with the wait staffs knowledge and fine dining style of service. The menu had normal options, nothing too impressive until I got to the steaks... Option of blu cheese and bacon crust on a steak! Also the normal option of blackened, I opted for both. A blucheese bacon crusted blackened ribeye served medium rare. Currently my favorite steak! I even went back weeks later with my parents, and the quality was just as superb! We we're all very happy! Bar and beer options were good/standard. I was happy with seasonal Great Lakes Brew co beer. All in all very good quality food and service. Good price

We thought the service on Saturday night was outstanding. The host and our waitress were very polite and professional. Loved the blackened salmon. Large portions. Unfortunately, we did not save room for desert.
