Great Restaurant

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

Stopped in here for lunch, my first time in. Sat at the bar. Service was great. Varied menu. By the time I had a burger, fries, drink and a tip it was $18 which to me is too much to spend for lunch, especially for what I had.

This place was actually recommend to me by nephew and I was glad to see he got food tasted from me. Wide selection of food which the five of us made good use of. The Asian wings and the voodo prawns and fries were to die for. The only reason why this place is not getting a 5 star was... More

Great variety on the menu. Moderately priced. Service was excellent. Enjoyed the pork chop marsalla with their signature augratin potatoes. Dined with a friend whose first visit to this restaurant. Very impressed. Will return.

We go to this Grillsmith somewhat regularly since it is my daughter's favorite. This time it was for her birthday and, sadly, her specific favorite dishes that she orders every time were just off. Although not dry, the chicken in the lemon feta chicken was overdone - burned on the outside - and the sauce was different (had pasta in... More

Great food and great prices as well as terrific service. A lot of food choices to choose from and everyone of them just as good as the next. Service is always perfect. Enjoy wine or alcohol with your dinner? Get there for happy hour, well worth it.
