This is our adult date spot. However we have also had large family celebrations here. They are always willing to accommodate. Hubby and I love to go for their happy hours. You'll get a great price on their small plates and drinks. Our favorite menu items are the Ahi Tuna app and the Bananas Foster dessert. But be sure to... More

I make a point of eating at Grillsmith once a week. The food is always cooked to perfection and the service is first class!

We've eaten here before and to sometimes mixed reviews. This restaurant is very noisy regardless the time of day. We chose to sit outside on this trip for that reason. The waiter was attentive, but slow. He didn't increase speed the whole meal. We both had the bleu cheese wedge salad and it was great. Very large portion and a... More

Only was in Lakeland for a day and after research I thought this place looked good. I was so glad I made the decision to go here, great food, great beer and the service was some the best I have ever seen. I was able to observe everything and this place ran like a well oiled machine. From the host... More

I visit Lakeland every year, but I haven't been to the Grillsmith for a couple of years. It more than lived up to my anticipation and expectation - the Port Filet Mignon was superbly cooked and full of flavour. The attentive, welcoming and enthusiastic service from Dakota was also a treat. I cannot wait to return

I've only been here once during a short weekend visit to Lakeland, but we enjoyed our meal very much. The BBQ pork flatbread and the moonshine blueberry lemonade (can't remember the name) is to die for. Our dishes were good, but the vegetables tasted a little bland. Our server was attentive and kind, but the atmosphere was a little chaotic.... More

Never been disappointed by a visit to Grillsmith. We've taken family from out of State and overseas there too and each time everybody leaves satisfied. One of the few places that stays open later at the Lakeside Village, which is also a plus!

Met some friends, who picked the place. Everything about it was as average and bland is it can be. Maybe I'm missing the point of Grillsmiths, but cannot think of a reason to ever go back. I'm not much into chain places, so maybe that's it. Anyway, they didn't do anything wrong just boring.
