Food was excellent. Service was excellent. We had a splendid lunch here catching up with family. Although we hadn't stayed, the Hotel appears to be very nice. If in this area again we would make it a point to return to the Terrace!

Three words...Banana Flambé waffles! Put the Terrace Grille on your bucket list for places to have breakfast. Banana Flambé waffles are a special treat.

For me, the Terrace is special occasion dining - elegant, white linen style! I see on the website that there is a great deal on a frequent diner card with drinks, breakfast, dinners all 2-4-1. I haven't tried the card, but it would be a great value.

I've been eating at The Terrace Grille since it opened nearly 20 years ago. It is a terrific room - high windows and ceilings, beautifully restored, pecky cypress ceilings, and chandeliers restored from the hotel's founding in the 1920's - yet the room is light, not stuffy, no need to feel intimidated, white table-cloths, black napkins if you need them,...

We enjoyed going to terrace grill in the past for a fine dinning evening to celebrate a special occasion. Unfortunately this restaurant has gone downhill. It is poorly managed and the staff are very amateur for a fine dining establishment. When spending $60 - 75 per person for dinner the service should be more polished and the food should be... More

While situated in a lovely historic hotel in downtown Lakeland, this restaurant's service and atmosphere were not good. It was so incredibly hot, but we were told the AC wasn't great, we were seated near the kitchen and some ballroom was being used that impeded the airflow. The waitress said she was hot too and "it wasn't our lucky day."... More

We had a business dinner here. Service was great, food was excellent but the noise level is very high and this was a Thursday night. There is a bar area back in the corner that has happy hour during the week and it seemed pretty busy.

The food was far from good. I had a filet which was covered in a terrible sauce. Since when did a filet need a sauce? The wine we ordered was not what we were served. The waitress really didn't know her business -how to pour, 2 salad forks, obviously no training . Very polite but.... For the price it was... More
