“Love small portions as I am a small person and eater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I love the new small portions and sides. I also love the spicy tia shrimp and chicken. 5$ spicy tai tuesday is the bomb!
Only had one bad thing since coming here. My husband had some wings that were nuked and sent them back but that was YEARS ago.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Been to grillsmith numerous times and keep going back. Consistently good food and great service. Moderately priced for a steak house type restaurant. The jalapeño mac and cheese is a must.

“COMFORTABLE AND DELICIOUS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This restaurant is located in a wonderful shopping village type complex and we decided to spend the day here to celebrate my wife's birthday. After taking in a movie we just walked across the street to the GrillSmith. I ordered a nice steak and my wife chose a BBQ rib dinner. Both were well presented and prepared. We would certainly return.

“Probably the best moderately priced restaurant in Lakeland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I suppose "moderately priced" is relative, but Grillsmith is certainly not cheap or fine dining. But it's consistently delicious and with the exception of a few entrees, is less than 20 bucks per person. They have a great happy hour from 4-7 and all night Wednesday. They have a great sirloin steak for under 20 bucks, good ribs, a good burger, and awesome jalapeño Mac and cheese as a side. We rarely ever have a bad meal, and we've probably been here 50/60 times over the last couple years. It's great to have this here in Lakeland.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Grillsmith's food is a cut above other chains. The atmosphere also has a more upscale feel, especially for a place that's about the same price as many other chains. We love the spicy tai shrimp, ribs, and mediterranean salmon.
