The Terrace Grille, is located at The Terrace Hotel in heart of Lakeland's quaint historic downtown district. The restaurant is an amazing bastion of big city dining with the tranquility of a beautiful old country town.
This small yet opulent dining establishment is home to the best food I have ever eaten outside of a major city. The menu is a Contemporary American Fusion and is a bit on the expensive spectrum. Nevertheless, it is well worth! particularly during their happy hour, because their appetizers are half off as well as an assortment of good alcoholic beverages. You should inquire before making your reservations.
Also I was a big fan of the rustic charm the hotel's inherently has. The building, looks like something that belonged in New York during the 1920s. Very classy and romantic.
The only foul that I can mention is that the waiters do not seem as organized as you would expect at a fine dining restaurant. Our waiter was not very attentive of us. I know that my girlfriend and I are younger than most guest, and may not be as well of as the other older couples. However, we should have received the same quality of attention to detail as they where.
Not to say that our experience was bad, because it was not. We had a great time!
That is why I gave this restaurant at 4 out of 5 stars.
