Grillsmith is a polished casual restaurant that creates modern American dishes using unique flavors from various cultures. The scratch-kitchen has a wide-range of fresh and locally sourced ingredients; from the Crunchy Ahi Tuna, to the rich Pork Chop Marsala, to the superior Port Wine Filet Mignon. “We take great pride in our food,” Ross Hughes, Chef and Culinary Operations Manager at Grillsmith. “From the preparation of our 18 oz Black Aberdeen Angus Bone-in Ribeye to finely minced garlic and herbs- we know that the details of every dish are what make us special and that’s what our guests love about us.”

In addition to these American classics, Grillsmith also features an array of modern wines, whiskeys, and handcrafted cocktails. The signature Smoked Old Fashioned, is a new take on an old favorite. It carries a swirl of seared wood, reminiscent of a campfire.

“At Grillsmith, we strive to deliver an exceptional dining experience to each and every one of our guests,” says, Hughes. “The moment you walk through the door, you’ll know you’re in a restaurant like no other.” The intimate dining area is designed with a contemporary style; featuring stylish light fixtures, rustic wood wall paneling and a luxe marble bar counter top. It is filled with plush booths and solid wooden tables, creating a modern and inviting atmosphere.

The Sarasota Grillsmith will be open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch beginning August 26th, 2019 at 11am.

The entire Tampa Bay area is invited to attend the official grand opening event to celebrate the newest location on Friday, October 11th, 2019!
