Family outdoor lunch

We were four adults and two children under three. The inside tables were all filled except for one. It was too warm for us and elected to eat outside. We're from Wisconsin and so this Florida January weather was perfect. One of us had very good hamburger, another a wonderfully flaky fish fry. I had... read more

In one of those 'Truman Show' village like communities springing up all over the US. Sidewalks, stores, movie theaters, traffic circles, hotels and restaurants. Great to be able to walk to things. Sat at the bar. Thought about outside seating but the temperature was dropping and wind picking up. Took a good 10 - 15 minutes to get the server's... More

My wife and I happened to try the Fish City Grill after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor. The atmosphere was lively and our service was great. We enjoyed an appetizer of fried dill pickles and our entrees of their special Shrimp Tacos, a perfect combination of spice and sweet. The corn tortillas were excellent and the shrimp was... More

The services was good but a little slow. We sat outside and had a lovely meal washed down with a nice glass or 2 of wine. If you are in the area it would be worth the visit

Fish & chips were the best I have had in the US other than in Maine. The service we received from our server Catherine was outstanding.

I was only familiar with Fish City Grill in Las Colinas, TX, so was pleasantly surprised this was close to my hotel. Yup, a carbon copy of the one I frequent. The staff is always friendly and helpful, great food with quality ingredients, preparations and presentations! Since I've had most of their menu items (all totally awesome), I gravitate to... More

I have dined here twice. Once with a large group and once most recently by myself. On both visits, staff were friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. They have an excellent beer selection and I highly recommend the gumbo.

After trying this restaurant out on a business meeting, my wife and I decided to give it a go on one of our date nights. I was less than impressed during the meeting, as the very artistically drawn menu on the chalkboard made my selection sound absolutely wonderful. Instead, I got a plate/bowl of flavorless brown, not the savory dish... More

Located at the traffic circle in Lakeside Village shopping center, Fish City Grill knows how to prepare seafood. I have never had a bad meal here, and, while it is pricey by comparison to other Lakeland seafood restaurants, it is leagues above others. The atmosphere is not all that great, but come for the food and not the decor.

We always get the fish city sandwich with blackened fish .... it is awsome and by far my favorite fish in this area .... if not anywhere . The service has always been second to none. Mondays kids eat free ... try it ! ..
