Best in Lakeland

This is probably one of the finest bar / restaurant in Lakeland. I usually go to the bar for the happy hour. Great food, atmosphere, and service. All the food I have had is very good.

First trip was for dinner before a movie: Excellent service and food. Second was for lunch with Granddaughter - again a great lunch and a fun time. The waiters and waitresses are always great. Stopped in for snacks while shopping - it is the perfect place when you're hungry, any time of day!

Very nice atmosphere, great food, ample portions, nice nice wine selection, great server staff! We eat here at least once a month, have not had a bad meal yet. Service seems to always excel, food is hot, delicious and good sized portions.

We just came out of the theater across the street and as we walked by the outside dining of GrillSmith, we though it would be a nice place for an adult beverage and a snack. And it was. We order a couple of beers and the Filet Tip Egg Rolls ($9.50). Wow! Were they excellent! Haven't had lunch or dinner... More

We were very pleased with the food, service and outside seating. I ordered the fish with some extra shrimp for a couple of dollars more and was quite pleased.

Dined here last night and as usual, we were not disappointed. Made a reservation Friday night because this location is quite busy on weekends. Got here at 6:30 and we were seated immediately with the lobby area jammed! Paige gave us excellent service throughout the meal and we were totally not rushed...very relaxed meal. Most times we dine here, it... More

Everything is outstanding and the restaurant is clean and neat. We like sitting outside if the weather isnt too harsh. We have not had any issues with service and the food taste and quality has always been excellent.

The skirt steak is the best. A little pricey, but well worth it!! Good service. Eat here regularly and often. Strongly suggest it

Our fish entrees were very good along with the salads and side dishes. The only issue we had with the restaurant was the volume of the dining room. We were with another couple and it was difficult to hear one another speak. The Happy Hour prices of our wine and beer were appreciated. We want to return again to the... More
