Went here with a group of 11 and all our food was awesome. Ordered several appetizers to try and each one was wonderful. They have a great happy hour from 4-10 I believe with drafts somewhere around $2.75 all night long. Would gladly return next time into the area.

With fall just around the corner I start thinking of cool evenings and pumpkin stuff. I lovvvvvvvvv the Pumpkin Crab Soup at Grillsmith especially in the fall and winter while sitting al fresco and watching the people. My grandson Brandon says they ahve the best burger around. Really we have always had great food here so go see them.

Met another couple for dinner. First time at this restaurant for all of us. We were quickly seated and our drink order was taken by our server who was very pleasant. The menu had a very nice selection, prices are reasonable. The spicy Thai Shrimp appetizer was an excellent starter. Each meal was very good and portions were right on.... More

This is my favorite place to eat out in Lakeland. The prices are reasonable; the menu stays up-to-date with new, fresh ideas (I especially love the pumpkin crab soup); and the service is consistently friendly and flexible.

We recently were there on a Friday night. When we arrived the hostess said it would be. 15 minute wait. We kept being pushed back by people that had the "Call ahead seating". 45 minutes later we were seated across from a party of 8 that were load, obnoxious & in no hurry to leave. Even thou their table was... More

I took a friend there for lunch. It was quite noisy inside with all the conversation so we ate outside, which was nice. Couldn't do that now...too hot outside! The food was very good but prices are higher than other restaurants I've been to, so if you are considering going as a group, keep that in mind because the prices... More

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!
