  1. Our Family is fairly new to Ben Wheeler. We went to the Forge today for Easter Brunch. The Staff invited our 2 year old to join in the employee Easter egg hunt and Party. They treated us like family. A special Thank You to Sarah, Lisa, Ed, Noah and Jackie! All we can say is Wow! This goes above and beyond customer service. The Forge encompasses an atmosphere of Community. Now when we return we will not just go to eat at the best Bistro in East Texas, we will be going to visit with friends.

    • Thanks! We try to do our best every day! Those are local grass fed cows from the Happy Cattle Company here in East Texas. We are dedicated to using only the most fresh, locally procured and ethically raised animals and ingredients. Thank you for your business!

  2. What a great place to eat and wait out a thunderstorm! A perfect night really, the blue chips, brisket tacos, spinach artichoke pizza and old school chicken tacos were excellent. The live music was great, Mirenda rocks and to boot she provided a live light show (complements of mother nature). Really…a perfect night indeed.

  3. Had a great time was there Sunday the 4th was with Randy James of 925 he couldn’t remember the name of your place he was going to give you guys a shout out on the air this morning sorry I got him the info to late plan on going back to have lunch we didn’t get to eat but the food we saw brought out to the table next to us and it looked real good

  4. First time to visit The Forge with spouse and friends Wed, 27 th, for Birthday Evening on Friends. Chose quite night to make sure I could get ion with no problem with cane. Parking was fine by ramp..don;t do stairs. Set down at Picnic table waiting on spouse, waitress came out and ask was all okay..I answered Yes, just waiting ..friends coming. She said Come on in plenty of room. She was very helpful and check on table often. Meal was very good and Looked good. We will be back and on a night sometime with Music. We visit many places because love Music. Connie Giles and Stephen Giles of East Texas BackRoads Band an Plus and Kathleen and MIchael Jerch , ( Singer songwriter ) and owner of Show Place Ranch.

  5. Best place around by far!! Has great talented musicians that play from all over. The food is unbelievable and has specials daily. Such a playa place to chill and have a beer or two or three!!! Whoop whoop!!

  6. First time at The Forge on Saturday night!!! Met some really neat people and the food was fabulous…Will definitely be going back! And a special thanks to my new friends Mike and Phyllis, they asked me to join them at there table as i was waiting on the rest of my group to come in from Canton…Really nice people.

  7. For months I had been hearing about the awesome Pizza at a place called The Forge in Ben Wheeler, Texas so I decided to take a friend and go over and check it out. WOW I was impressed to say the least. I’m not a huge Pizza fan but I am now. The Pizza was the tastiest Pizza I have ever eaten and trust me over the past 15 years of living between Orange County California to Seattle I can say it’s got to be the BEST!!!….. I will definately go back. One recommendation…..Seemed to be under staffed but overall was worth the wait….. Belinda Blackshear..Hideaway, Texas

    • Thank you so much for coming out and visiting us! We love to hear our customer feedback and this really makes us proud when we make our customers happy! I just found out that we made it into Texas Monthly and I am positive we would not have made it there without patrons like you. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon!

  8. First time customer today but we will definitely be back! The Caesar pizza was amazing, and the big easy sandwich was delicious!

    • Thank you so much for visiting our establishment and then taking the time to tell us how you liked it. We hope you get to come back real soon. We are always adding new goodies to our menu. Thanks again!
