So-So

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... read 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

We had a birthday to celebrate so where did we go? Grillsmith of course. I.asked our server to select a 5 star dinner for me and she sure did. Make sure you have the Caribbean Pumpkin Crab Bisque. What a taste treat. Thick and nicely spiced with generous pieces of crab. A rival to my favorite She Crab soup. My... More

Arrived and had a drink at the bar before dinner. Very friendly service and a decent selection of wine. Had a large party and the server accommodated separate checks for all the couples. Food came quickly and was delicious, interesting, and fresh. And when we got the bills all of us were amazed at how inexpensive it was! I would... More

We have gone to Grillsmith many times since they opened and it has always been good. Thus we decided on our farewell trip to Lakeland to take our old neighbors for dinner last week. The salmon bruschetta was an excellent appetizer. My chicken was a huge portion. It was supposed to come with rice but I substituted the jalapeño Mac... More

Once again we had an excellent dinner at GrillSmith. I had the filet and my husband ordered the ribeye. They were both perfectly cooked and delicious. Our server Brian was very pleasant and efficient. Nice atmosphere, great food and service. I always leave looking forward to our next visit.

Staying at the Hampton for work and walked here for dinner with a co-worker. I have been here several times and the food has been consistently great. They do get crowded so a reservation or getting in early is definitely helpful. This time I had the grilled pork chop marsala, and it was fantastic. My friend had the baby back... More
