The Forge Restaurant

The Forge Restaurant at Montgomery Bell State Park offers casual dining in a relaxed comfortable setting. The restaurant is located between Dickson and Burns, Tennessee, and is perfect for an early breakfast, a leisurely lunch or dinner for your next family get-together. 

In addition to our popular buffets, we offer a variety of heart-healthy and locally sourced items from our menu. Enjoy modern takes on standards like the Farmhouse Wrap, a whole wheat tortilla filled with chicken and a blend of kale, broccoli, and edamame with corn, bell peppers and mixed greens tossed in sesame dressing. Or, Shrimp and Grits, locally grown stone ground grits cooked with cream and butter and topped with blackened shrimp, bacon, mushrooms and green onions. Whether enjoying a burger and fries or another American classic,  you are sure to go home with a smile on your lips.

Wines by the glass and bottle, domestic and local craft beers, and mixed drinks are available. Be sure to check out our new drink menu featuring cocktails made with TN products!

Banquet and catering services are available.

Buffet may not be available every day and items may vary. Located at the Inn and Conference Center, The Forge seats up to 190 people and has a picturesque view of Lake Acorn.
