The ribeye was good however, it’s definitely over priced at around $82.50 (including tax and tip) per person. It’s too bad that the restaurant decided to stop serving Prime Rib.

Met with friends for another celebratory dinner at Forbes Mill. All four of us ordered the Angus Prime: 3 rib-eyes, 1 strip. Strip and 1 rib-eye were fine, 2 rib-eyes had a bit more gristle than they should have, although flavor was very good. I grew up in the Midwest and Black Angus is my favorite beef. Prawn cocktail and beet salad were excellent; FM makes the best prawn cocktail we've had in any EBay restaurant. Had leftovers, but somehow my strip steak didn't make it into the box. Mgmt was VERY apologetic and sent us a generous gift card to compensate for the disappointment. This is our 4th visit and our friends' 7th visit; first time it's happened so just a one-off error. Won't stop us from coming back! We've tried Flemings and Ruth's Chris', but Forbes is our preferred EBay steakhouse. Great for special occasions; service is well-trained and parking is easy.

The service was impeccable, rivalling any Michelin-starred restaurant. The food was amazing--perfectly cooked, tender steaks, flavorful sides, fresh salads. We were celebrating our anniversary and they provided personalized menus and a lovely anniversary dessert on the house.

Very over priced for what you get!!! We pride almost $100 cheaper for a table of 4 at Scott’s Seafood in WC. The food was better too. Plus your martini glasses are small & I ordered 2 instead of one like I do at other high class restaurants

Absolutely phenomenal. This is now me and my girls go to favorite spot for a great night out. The service, food, lighting, just everything was done superbly. Our server Eduardo was funny, professional and making sure that everything was up to the highest standard. We even ordered the desert just because of how genuine you could tell when he said "the lava cake is so good you have to try it". 5/5 stars, Forbes Mill has set the standard.

Had a great time on a date night with my wife. We had the oyster appetizer with the wine pairing. Oysters tasted so fresh and clean, that my wife that couldn’t stand the thought of slimey oysters actually had 4 oysters of her own. They were fresh and tasty. I ordered a wagyu filet and it was like butter melting in my tongue perfectly cooked medium rare. The sides were great also. We had the mushrooms and asparagus.
Finished the new guy off with a spectacular butter cake. My wife’s new favorite place, and mine too.

The food took a long time to get to the table. My steak had too much pepper on it. I would still recommend the place. I have been many times before and it’s always great. It must have just been an off night for Forbes Mill.

We were incredibly disappointed with the service and overall experience. We were felt that we were not welcome, we know we sat down after 9pm although the server was not friendly, never checked in after the food came. The steaks were pretty terrible, no flavor, risotto was not even cooked thoroughly. This was a second time there after having a decent experience althuogh the service was slow, although this 2nd visit has poor service and poor food quality. This was a very expensive meal for a poor experience.

It's an okay steakhouse experience, but nothing memorable about it. Steaks were cooked to our liking and sides were okay, but overall the meal didn't seem worth the price. Service was somewhat lacking. Waiter wasn't very attentive and never refilled our water the entire time we were there. Wife and I shared a creme brulee that was not very good at all. Custard was way overcooked. We've made better ourselves at home.

It has been a while since we had been to Forbes Mill Steakhouse. I wanted to celebrate my husbands birthday with a special place close by. Forbes Mill did not disappoint. We sat in a booth and Robert was attentive, but didn't hover. Our food was so very delicious. We started our meal with a prawn appetizer that was so very good. I had cream of mushroom soup that was perfect. Hope to go again soon.

Not right now, there seems to have been some internal changes to staffing? Or perhaps they were overbooked. We appreciated that they accommodated our party and had a good experience with the hostess. However, the head weight staff member was not what we have traditionally known as the FORBES MILL Steakhouse experience. He just seemed to not care or perhaps he did not care for our table in particular? We had to bread plates with no bread until later in the meal. We ordered steak dishes, etc but we were not provided with steak knives. We did not get water services. And some of our guests were asking for more wine or the wine list but by the time the server came to the table dinner was nearly over and it was too late to request additional wine BTG or Bottle. While the supporting staff was as helpful as they could be with limited experience, the lead staff member did not seem Forbes trained or lacked that fine dining training or touch or motivation. There were a few times where guests had to get up from the table and requests our lead staff or reach out to another staff member for assistance. We usually dine at the bar and have a great experience. We've also hosted several birthdays and events at Forbes and have had a great experience. This experience was an unfortunate disappointment. We really like Forbes in Danville and usually the food and staff are close to the Forbes name but unfortunately not this weekend. We hope this is helpful.

Really a perfect evening. Steaks were amazing. Enjoyed my Ahi tuna very much. They brought us a dessert sampler for our anniversary. We were in for early seating and it can get a bit noisy in the restaurant when it’s full, but not the case on this visit. I think they’re better than Ruth Chris if you’re looking for steak and not afraid of price. Service is great and attentive.

Was very disappointed in the quality of my steak.
Service was awful, food delivered was incorrect, our waitress was subsequently busy at two other tables opening wine so we hailed someone totally unrelated after 20 minutes to fix the order.
I wont be going back.

We have lived in the area for around 5yrs and this was our first time at Forbes. We were pleasantly surprised about how good it was. We started with the beet salad, and my wife and I split the 28 day bone end rib-eye and the Tuna. Both were fantastic. Had the butter cake for dessert. Also, very good. Great service and a nice bar. We will definitely be back!
