Michael Forbes Bar & Grille Ratings and Reviews
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!
We made reservations and our table was ready when we walked in. The free chips and dip was great to munch on while we waited for our dinner. I had the filet and it was excellent (very good for the price) and the garlic sauce is phenomenal.
Took family from out of town to have brunch at Michael Forbe's and we all really enjoyed it. Lots of foods to choose from but especially enjoyed the perfectly cooked bacon and the chicken tenders. Attentive service, couldn't have asked for more. Everyone left fat and happy!
I was visiting my son and his family in Kansas City and discovered the restaurant while shopping in the Brookside neighborhood. I checked to see if it was family friendly for my 2-yr old granddaughter and 6-month old grandson.
The staff was very friendly; I think each one of them stopped by the table to talk to the children and make sure we had everything we needed. All of our food was very good.
I will definitely pay another visit the next time I am in town.
Great Sunday dinner with friends. We had the Fried Chicken, Steak Demi, Salmon and Catfish. All were excellent and our table was very impressed with our service from Christine. She was there for all of our needs. Great nieborhood restaurant with really fresh and great tasting food.
