Grill Smith is always a good choice. I personally love their appetizers and usually just pick a couple as my meal. They have fantastic lunch deals during the week. My favorite entrée is the Chimichurri Steak. The best deal is you can purchase movie vouchers for $7.75 with a food purchase...awesome!

Its been a while since I dined at GrillSmith, but we routinely have our GNO's there. GrillSmith is always accommodating, has great cocktail/beer specials, and appetizers/small plates for happy hour. The only negative is that it is very noisy in the bar area. The dining area is much quieter. When we have cooler temps, its nice to sit in their... More

You have lots of choice if you want to eat out on Town Center Drive but the Grillsmith will not disappoint. Attentive and courteous greeters and servers, interesting menu and good choice of specialty beers. Orders taken promptly, food was very good and we never felt we were being rushed. Good overall experience.

After checking in the hotel in Lakeland FL, I followed my usual custom and checked TripAdvisor for local restaurants that are not the chain variety. I hit the jackpot with GrillSmith Restaurant. After checking the website and reviews, I was intrigued enough to try it out. Arriving just before the dinner rush, I was greeted warmly by the hostess and... More

I can't stop thinking about the Lemon Feta Chicken- amazing. The green beans were cooked perfectly, and the cauliflower smash was very tasty. Husband had steak- very good, but a smaller portion. We arrived early, 6:30pm, and was told it would be a 30-45minute wait for a party of two. We got lucky in the bar area and were able... More

Our waiter , Richard was very attentive and the store manager also checked on us. My flat iron steak was great! All of us enjoyed our meals. All in all , one of the best places for... More
