Last night they were open

We stopped because of nice outdoor seating and had some drinks. The waitress informed us this was their last night open due to a lease not being renewed.

This restaurant is unfairly lobbied as a great alternative to upscale steakhouses. It is not. The food was over priced, the quality was that of most any average. I would save my money and go to Carrabas or Longhorn. You will fair better. I eat out alot and enjoy a good meal. We don't mind paying for what we get... More

Great food, but a really good place to do a dinner presentation. Nice layout, and they are reasonable on price.

Our last time in Tampa (2 years ago), we dined at Grillsmith, and this visit, we knew we had to go back. Our server, Robbie, was fantastic! We enjoyed every single one of our dishes, and went back twice during our stay! The smashed cauliflower is to die for. My husband's meatloaf was fantastic, and my Caprese stack (tomato, fresh...

What a wonderful lunch! Great service, great food, at a great price! Did not have to wait long for a table, even though we had a party of 9.

Found out on my most recent visit that this restaurant is closing down by the end of March (2015)... BOOOOO! Good food & a GREAT, friendly staff! They are not lacking for customers either as far as I can see, maybe they do not have a 2 hour wait for a table every night, but that is a GOOD thing... More

Great food & reasonable cost. There was a short wait, but not bad for a Saturday evening. Our waitress was great even though she was tending to a group of ten young ladies, one of whom was celebrating their 16th birthday. Overall good experience.

Parking was not easy, had a larger group and it seemed problematic to accommodate us. Service was acceptable albeit slow. Prices were on the high side for the portions. Everything seemed to be over salted. Definitely, would try something new before returning here.

We were staying in the hotel room next door and this place was recommended by the office. The restaurant was laid out fairly well with room to walk around. Although it was loud it wasn't completely overbearing. All our food was cooked well with just a little bit too much salt. I had the fitness chicken and it was a... More

We held a team party out on the patio for lunch on a Saturday so there were about 10 kids and 15 adults. Service was excellent; waiter took complete control and all food came out at same time, was hot and very good. Families were separated and there were separate checks and no issues. We had patio to ourselves and... More
