The Forge Steakhouse and CyberFire Lounge. John had worked for Cat for over 12 years and left there in the summer of 2019 to focus on opening their restaurant.
Amber and I had been blessed with great jobs in various marketing groups within Caterpillar, and with those jobs, we traveled.... a lot. Some of our favorite experiences from those travels can be found in what we offer at The Forge and CyberFire. We wanted to do something unique."
Amber still describes it as exciting and scary. She can be found walking the rooms of the restaurant several days a week, saying hi to guests, and pointing out things that need to be done by the staff. John and Amber are excited to add their business to downtown Morton, to add to the history of the Morton Blacksmith Shop, to be providing jobs in their community, and to be serving Morton and the surrounding area.
