Dining and Nightlife

No matter what you’re craving, there are Downtown Lakeland Restaurants to suit every appetite.

There has been an explosion of new Downtown Lakeland Restaurants over the last few years. With the revitalization of downtown, and the influx of new business making downtown Lakeland their home, there has never been a better time to be a foodie in Lakeland. As you make your way through downtown, you’ll see hundreds of people either waiting in line for a great slice of pizza, or sitting in the park enjoying a fresh sandwich.

Featured Restaurants

Husk Restaurant

A celebration of the South, using only ingredients from Southern farmers and purveyors. Our bar offers a progressive wine list, Southern beers, and handcrafted cocktails.

With so many new Lakeland Florida Restaurants, the choices are almost endless. Are you in the mood for a gourmet salad? You can have it! How about a juicy burger? You can have it! Are you craving a bowl of spicy gumbo? You can have it! It would be safe to say, that you would have a harder time choosing from all the delicious offerings, than not being able to find what you’re looking for.


It really doesn’t matter what time of the day you go downtown. From breakfast, to a late night snack, you will find what your taste buds are craving downtown.


Now, we know making up your mind can be difficult. We have the same problem sometimes. It can be overwhelming as you’re walking downtown, and everything looks so good. How do you make up your mind? Well you can rest assured, no matter what Downtown Lakeland Restaurant you choose, you’re in store for a great meal, and hopefully an even better experience.


We encourage you to maybe try something new the next time you’re downtown. We’re all creatures of habit, but you just might find something new you’ve never tried, and have a new lunch or dinner tradition.


As always, we love to see your pictures, and hear your stories and experiences while you’re exploring downtown Lakeland.
