    My family and pup love coming here to dine! The pup friendly menu is always a hit with my fur baby! The service is always of excellent quality.

    GrillSmith Tonght

    My wife and I have been going to GrillSmith since the location was a brew pub. We asked for a table on the patio with our dog as we have done once before, We were told that there was only available high-tops ( I've had back surgery). Plenty of regular tables available on the patio but the explanation was that there was a big party coming in. WE WERE THE ONLT ONES WITH A DOG. The other tables were scattered with guests. So of all the empty, well spaced, regular tables available they could only offer us a high-top because of a special event. We went to Marlo's and had a great time. However, on the way home we went back by "The Smith" and the patio was three-quarters empty with NO BIG PARTY at all. I do not think that they wanted to seat us at a table with our well behaved dog. Good luck on the Dale Mabry strip with that attitude.

    Great experience...for dog and human alike!!

    11/25/2015 - Great experience overall...for dog and human alike. Upon seating our drink order was taken for everyone...including the pup. And the same when the orders were taken. They even have a pup menu...grilled chicken and rice, steak and rice, etc. All options are quality and served in a dog dish. This is one of our best doggie dining experiences to date. Staff was fantastic and food too!! Thank you. Cheers :)

    it was ok...

    My companion and I ended our trip at Grill Smith New Tampa- she loved the food service was w/ a smile but not all to wonderful. We are seated rg away, but it took a bit for me to have a bowl of water. It was ok, I'd come bk if in the area, but not drive 45miles out of the way

    we actually visited the Grillsmith in Lakeland. Plenty of dog-friendly seating. Tables were a bit close together to suit our Great Pyrenees (2 of them), but they did enjoy the cool water and friendly staff.

    Visited 2 times already

    We've been to the South Tampa Grillsmith twice this month with our dog. The staff is very nice, they provided water for our fuzzy buddy and both times the waitstaff commented on how well behaved he was.
    The patio area is spacious and the times we have been there it has been very clean.
    We'll definitely be back!

    I forgot to mention....

    We visited Tampa over Memorial Day weekend - so we dined there on May 30, 2010. Again, I cannot say how pleasant and gracious GrillSmith and its staff was to us and our pooch.....

    GrillSmith + Dog = AWESOME EXPERIENCE

    Hello folks ! ! ! After checking this website we decided to call up Grillsmith to ask about their pet policy. They stated they were dog friendly so we went ahead and made dinner plans to visit. First and foremost - the food was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS ! ! Their Margherita Flatbread is INCREDIBLE ! ! ! The dinner items were just as flavorful and the portions are "humansized". But enough about the food - let's talk about the experience with our dog - an 80 lb. Chocolate Lab....The restaurant was VERY accomodating and the host was a DELIGHT to deal with. The staff didn't "bat an eye" when we walked in and offered to bring out our pooch a bowl of ice cold water. We sat outside (which i believe is required) but the outdoor is seating is VERY cozy and nice ! ! The wait staff was attentive and brought out some doggie biscuits for our Lab'....not only was attention given to us (the humans) but also to our Lab'....I believe our dog enjoyed the experience JUST AS MUCH as us ! ! ! Go to Grillsmith - you (and your pooch) won't be disappointed ! ! ! I'd say 10 bones ! ! !
