Forrester�s on the River is a casual fine dining restaurant that serves American cuisine in a friendly atmosphere. Stop by with colleagues for a steakhouse burger or a traditional Reuben sandwich. Sit out on the patio and take in the view of downtown. Come in for a drink with friends after work and snack on pretzels and lager cheese or bay wings that have been hand breaded and spun in a house sauce. For larger appetites, entr�es at Forrester's include fish and chips, grilled salmon, grilled chicken Marsala or a full menu of steak choices.

Forrester�s has many specials and events throughout the week, including wine tastings and live musicians, as well as happy hour specials on both food and drinks.
