Grillsmith has the best chicken wings in Florida!! From the appetizer menu, I ordered their blackened chicken wings with a side of blue cheese. I also ordered their Napa Valley side salad. Both were amazing!! I would highly recommend Grillsmith for their quality ingredients and original menu items.

Grill Smith has it all. Great food, salads, steaks ,seafood and pasta. A full bar to celebrate those special occasions. Atmosphere is contemporary and relaxed. After your meal you can also buy movie tickets at a discounted price.

Thought this restaurant was going to be up scale restaurant, more like Houston's. It was not. Food was good and so was the service. Prices were fair. It is a chain, with a few locations. I would go back but for not for a special restaurant that I was looking for. But then, it was Lakeland, and not known for... More

My husband always get one of the steak dinners and he's never complain on any of them. My choice is usually fried shrimp or the grilled shrimp with rice and it's a great flavor and the shrimp are large.

Great place to go after church or before theater. Prompt seating - even if if you're waiting, the list gets cleared quickly. Service is prompt, efficient, friendly but unobtrusive. As the name implies, grilled meat dishes are their specialty, and the grilled veggies on side dishes are second to none. I had the ribs, grilled asparagus and a baked potato.... More

Grillsmith has awesome choices for fair prices. I had the red snapper and the wife had the chicken caprese. The kids were also satisfied with their choices as well. The atmosphere is good although a little loud. We will be coming back for sure.

Met friends here for dinner on a week night. Always nice happy hour apps and wine deals. My husband's meatloaf was tasty, with my favorite jalapeño mac & cheese. I had a plate of salmon with vegetables--the salmon was a bit dry but I had ordered from a "light" section of the menu so no sauce served with it. Nice... More
