We like Grill Smith so try to get a visit or two in when on vacation. This time we visited on a Monday night and tried their Monday @ the Smith menu. Three courses starting from $16. The portions are supposedly smaller than a regular plate. Perfect size for me. I had a cup of the soup of the day and for my main I opted for the Cajun shrimp and Chicken Pasta. I was stuffed. I didn't have room for dessert so had mine to go - half slice of key lime pie served with whipped cream and kiwi-lime sauce. It was very nice. Thankfully my husband also had his dessert to go so I got to try the other option Chocolate Decadence - Half slice of scratch, flourless mocha chocolate cake with fresh chocolate mousse and raspberry coulis. Delish.

Visited as part of a 20 person party. Our server was terrific. Food all came out together; prompt drink service; very pleasant. Hostesses and staff were very accommodating.
Everyone enjoyed the range of foods - burgers, BLT, pizzas, chicken wings, steaks, salads.
Best buffalo sauce I've had in years.
However, the "Flatbreads" are actually pizzas not true flatbreads. I ate most of a Margherita one and found the dough unpleasant which ruined the taste of the cheeses and toppings.
Other than that, very pleasant visit.

Stopped in several months ago just for a quick lunch, James the waiter recommend we try the pumpkin bisque soup. He gave us each a small taste. I was hooked and have been coming back almost every week since. Lots of food selections steaks are good meatloaf very good along with shrimp app, and salmon dinners last night had two new appetizers meatballs and the portabella mushroom french fries. the manager bob delivered both to us explained it was there first night on menu and asked our opinion of both. Manager was excellent listened well and was talking to several tables about their meal and experience at the restaurant, it was obvious he really cared about customers feeling and wanted to make sure customers were satisfied with restaurant. Great place will be back next week.

I schedule lunch meetings often at Grillsmith because the food is always good and there’s something for everyone. This pasted weekend my girls and attended a wedding shower in there private room. It was adorable and even with a set menu there was still a diverse selection. However, the male waiter was not very friendly and I’m assuming it’s because the parking party was big enough his gratuity was already included. Had we not been invited guests at the shower I would have complained. He was rude he literally ignored us even if we tried to ask a question. Anyway, the bride to be had know idea and seemed to enjoy herself and the shower was a huge success.
