Outstanding food!

The atmosphere is low lights, staff extremely friendly and attentive! The food simply amazing! I got the pork tenderloin with red bliss mashed, carrots (Veg of the day) on the menu it came with spinach. The pork was tender and the flavor was perfect! The carrots were fresh and cooked to perfection... read more

Four of us ate dinner at Grillsmith's on July 11,2015. We each had different meals and all four of us were extremely pleased with the quality of the food and the large portions. It is extremely rare that four out of four people are happy! A great restaurant with great service! I would suggest making reservations, especially on the weekend... More

We have always had good meals at GrillSmith. The soups and salads are very good and the burgers are tasty. Their Sunday brunch is also very good.

Great place for a great steak in a more upscale atmosphere. The portions are good and the drinks are poured very well. They have a nice wine and beer selection as well. We went for lunch and the waitstaff were very attentive and friendly. The hostess and the manager even stopped by to check on us a couple of times.

Dining solo? Plenty of bar seating! Date night? No problem! Planning a small dinner party? There's a room in the back (by reservation). The place is very popular and gets crowded on the weekends, so expect a 30-45 minute wait. (They may have call-ahead, I'm not sure) But the food is worth the wait - my favorite dish is the... More

My wife received a gift certificate over a year ago from a student, and when she joined the GrillSmith loyalty group recently they gave her a free appetizer so she surprised me and she took me there tonight (my first time but certainly not my last). For her free appetizer she chose the grilled chicken tender, lettuce wraps consisting of... More
