Michael Forbes Bar & Grille Ratings and Reviews
Our evening was a celebration of great news with lifetime friends. We each had different menu items, all very good and we'll presented. Our server was attentive, pleasant and friendly. Definitely on our list of "often" places to go. Thank you's to the entire staff.
They were out of 2 entrees, one of which was the special for the night. The waiter didn't bring the malt vinegar for the fish and chips. Some of our party had water and others didn't. We waited at least half an hour for anyone to wait on us. The food took very long to get to us after we ordered. It was an hour and a half before we were able to leave. Way too long.
This was the third year I have taken family to Michael Forbes for Thanksgiving brunch. The food is always fabulous. Our reserved table was ready for us upon arrival with water already poured. Wonderful service. Will return again next year and many times in between.
We made a reservation for a family birthday and this was written on the reservation. The server never mentioned this until we were on our way out the door, the restaurant was empty however we were seated right by the front door. The service was average at best. We received one of our meals on a dirty plate and another with very tough meat. So disappointing especially for the price.
Love, love, love to have brunch here. The staff is always so friendly and quick. The buffet has more than enough choices without being silly. The food is always great and they keep refilling the items regularly. Your choice of having pancakes or grits cooked to order and brought to your table with the buffet. Just a really nice place for brunch and Bloody Marys.
Took my girlfriend and our teenage kids out for a little family night and the kids picked the restaurant.
We were quickly seated and our service was very good. Place was busy but not crazy.
Was treated to some homemade chips, gratis, which was very nice.
Food was very good, Burgers, Tacos (Taco Tuesday), brownie sundae and creme brulee
Kids wanted to come back again, so that says it all!
This is one of my family's favorites! Their food is always delicious and has great price tags. If you make a reservation, they always have your table set up beautifully when you arrive. The atmosphere is great for a date night with my husband, a night out with the girls, or a celebratory dinner. The last time we were there they even had a magician going around to different tables. The waiting staff is always jolly and take great care of their customers! Not to mention every meal comes with free dinner rolls AND their homemade potato chips with their wonderful onion dip (Win-Win)!
Disappointing service and average food. Saturday night and place was packed (older crowd) -
we only saw our server three times in 45 minutes - it was as if 2 or 3 servers didn't show up for their shifts because our server had half the restaurant. Waited 15 minutes on our drinks, appetizer wasn't brought out until after meal, once food was delivered by a staff member from kitchen, we weren't able to track anyone down for silverware until we'd be sitting there with our food for 10 minutes. Not a good experience and no plans to go back.
I took my spouse to Michael Forbes for a birthday dinner. We were pleased with the food, ambiance, and service. I would recommend this restaurant more so on a weeknight or during the lunch hour. I love the Brookside area. It was very cozy and the prices were just right. The selection of entree's and appetizer's and daily specials are great. I think it is a great place for a date or friend's get-together. Bon appetit!
