The food is really good and the waitress care about their customers, the only problem is that you need to use your cell phone to light up the menu, is too dark most likely for a romantic dinner. You can barely see the menu we wasn't the only ones confronting the same problem trying to see the menu... read more

I have eaten at Grill Smith many times and it is always very consistent. The food is very good, the price is reasonable and the service is good.

I've been to the GrillSmith location in Lakeland several times. Always had great meals and drinks. Service is top notch! Very disappointed to see the Sunday brunch menu gone though.

If you're going to the movies at the Cobb Theater in Town Center and want a meal before or after, just cross the street to the GrillSmith. We enjoyed lunch at the bar here twice one week. One day we enjoyed just a couple of apps - Spicy Thai Shrimp and Crunchy Ahi Tuna with a specialty drink for the... More

The place was clean, the service was good, and the food was amazing! We went here for a team dinner and ate here another night with another couple during our stay in February 2015.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner recently for the first time and had a wonderful dinner. We highly recommend this restaurant. Go early to beat the rush - place gets busy. The Lakeland Village Mall is very cool as well. Take the time to go for a stroll.

The grand daughters like this place so we have been at least 3 or 4 times. But unless they are meeting us there, we probably would not go. We were seated fairly quick with reservations however our dinner order was not taken for 20 to 30 minutes after being seated. With a large group (7 or 8) you are going... More

I had the Lemon feta chicken...covered in white sauce artichoke hearts amazing! Jumbo shrimp and crab cake appetizer with the light mango salsa on the side was impressive. The price is reasonable given it's extremely high-quality. Outside seating available inside dark and engaging atmosphere. Great for a date.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town. Part of a chain but not so big that you feel like yyou've beet in 20 before. The atmoshere is dark wood. The food is good and the prices are right at happy hour. The service can be spotty only because it is so popular. I would definately recommend it to... More
