This is a Danville treasure. For a first class steakhouse dinner, Forbes is tough to beat.

The staff was great and the food was really good but we didn't fall in love with anything that would cause us to come back. It was nice that a steak house would have a kids menu with coloring crayons, though my kids pasta was a bit spicy.

Always a fantastic experience. The food was perfectly prepared, as usual. They were also taking every precaution to keep people safe during the pandemic. I had no one within 20 feet of me while dining.

Very surprised over previous experience here. Due to Covid problems, empty inside so we had nice window table...very few others inside so quiet. Food was outstanding...I had the ribeye steak sandwich and Barb had the Ahi Tuna. Done perfectly!

Food was tasty and being outdoors put us at ease due to covid, but they placed us at a table for 4 against the porch and it was an awkward seating arrangement for 2 people as we stared into the parking lot. I understand they were busy (it was a Saturday night) but I was disappointed in the service. We were celebrating a special occasion and spent quite a considerable amount, but when we ordered items they either came too late (ordered a bottle of wine that didn’t arrive until after appetizers were almost completed) or even a basket of bread that just never arrived. Also I do not recommend the charcuterie plate, it was literally 3 little slices of the same cheese, a few slices of salami and a small bowl of sliced tomatoes, 1 sliced kalamata olive and a few pieces of artichoke. Either they should add more items or completely remove this off the menu because it was appalling to get such little for $15. Our waiter was cordial but was clearly overseeing too many tables and all of our ordered items were brought by different restaurant employees. For a high end steakhouse with great reviews my expectations were higher and while the restaurant is navigating their way through reopening during covid they also need to realize that they should not take on more customers than they can truly accommodate (not by space, but by actual service and experience for customers). It might be a while before we come back, if at all.

Our first time indoor dining since COVID hit it March. It was such a lovely experience and all staff were masked and kept their distance. I had the filet and scampi and my husband had the surf and turf. Both steaks were cooked perfectly. We were out celebrating our 5th anniversary as well as our first time away from our newborn and they personalized the menus and gave us a cute dessert platter for our celebration. So glad they are open for indoor dining!

Good to see the Forbes is back with the same great food and now expanded outdoor dining. 5* for the salads, steak, ahi - and even some decent wines. Only downside is a bit of a wait when the early crowd lingers.

I wasn't sure what to expect for outdoor dining, but our table for 4 was in a nice location where it was easy to have a conversation without interfering with those around us. We each ordered something different and we each said our meal was delicious. The service was outstanding, too.

I hate going to steakhouses that charge $50+ for steak. Because of course I can buy a prime filet and do a pretty decent job of grilling it. But once in a while it's nice to have someone else cook, and I'll pick Forbes Mill when I get that urge. 8 oz filet was perfectly cooked, my wife loved her halibut, service was spot-on. Kudos!

It was our first time there. To consider the similar price range you pay at Ruth’s Chris steakhouse, I would rather go to Ruth’s Chris instead. Service was great, but the rest is average.

Everything was perfect! We were celebrating my boyfriend birthday I couldn’t have asked for a better date. Our filet Mignon was delicious and the Syrah our waiter recommended was amazing. Last but not least they brought us a birthday dessert special that topped it off yummy! Great atmosphere and service we will definitely come back 😊❤️

It was a very hot day! I called to see if we could get accommodating seating since I have asthma and my client is 7+ months pregnant....they did. Food was great. The female server was not that great. We tipped her fairly, but I would not want her again. Thanks.

I’ve been to Forbes Mill many times, but this was the first time during Covid. They did a wonderful job in creating an outdoor dining experience while maintaining social distancing. With the generous wraparound deck, they were able to arrange the tables 6’ apart while still creating an intimate environment. The wait staff were masked and the menus were printed and disposable. The food was great, as usual, but the delivery was a bit slower than normal. The server was very apologetic for the delays. We still enjoyed ourselves immensely.

52nd Birthday celebrations. Menus had special touch “Happy Birthday “ printed at the top. Great weather outside seating, son and I had filet with mashed potatoes which was excellent and cooked perfectly. My Daughter had the pasta.
I had 2 excellent glasses of the Hall cab. Gave me a birthday dish for dessert, my kids had vanilla with chocolate sauce. Excellent meal. Service and waiter was great.
