We were recently at Grillsmith for a business group dinner. Our party of about 25 was in a private dining area closed off from the rest of the restaurant. We chose from a limited menu of 2 salads and 4 entrees. Dessert was also included, but we passed. Our table mate got the Bananas Foster, which was huge and apparently... More

Came here on a whim and so glad we did. 6 pm on a Saturday night, crowded but no wait. Server Steve was professional, friendly, didn't hover but seemed to be there when we needed him. Pumpkin crab bisque was off the chain good. Portion sizes were just right. Chicken Caprese was yummy. It's a fairly large open place and... More

Good service, food, and you can make reservations. Very good for special occasions! I usually get the shrimp and crab burger and sometimes the steaks.

Whenever I am in the area, I love to go here. Usually have the steak and au gratin potatoes. They never disappoint. Would highly recommend.

Our Bunco Group goes to lunch after games on various Mondays. One of our favorite places to go is Grillsmith in the Lakeside Village in Lakeland. It's conveniently located and has a great lunch combo selection. You can choose 3 items from a variety of salads, soups, sandwiches or sides.They have really terrific salads like the Napa Valley with cranberries... More

The doctor has me on a new sugar free, gluten free, but not fun free diet. The chef kindly made my salmon without the fabulous bourbon glaze that I love. He did such a great job I didn't even miss it. The bar tender made my drink from scratch muddling mint and limes (no sugar) with my vodka. 😊 Thanks... More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times. Each time the food was great. The Caribbean Pumpkin Crab soup is excellent and we order it every time. The Macadamia Crusted Chicken Filet was outstanding. Hopefully soon the weather will cool off and we can eat out on the patio. Watch the time on happy hour. We were there just before... More

This is my third time eating here. There a lot of things that make a good place to eat. Of course without question the food which is awesome. The cleanliness is also very good. As many believe, first impressions are always important no matter where you dine. Again, this was just so impressive, the ladies at the reservation desk were... More

We go to Grillsmith at least once a week...and have for years. The staff is like family, the ambience is lovely, and the food is outstanding. We go for lunch, and it can be busy, but it's never a long wait. We've even taken 12 family members and the puppies for dinner during their visit last Christmas. We were seated... More
