We've been going to Crispers for yrs. with friends and family. Their salads are delicious, as is the soup and sandwich menu. It's fresh and quick. Great for take home or luncheon. Particularly like the oriental salad or salads with excellent ranch dressings.

Have been going to Crispers since they first opened on the south side of Lakeland years ago. They have excellent salads and combinations with soups or sandwiches.

It's very similar to Panera with the kind of stuff they offer, but the taste and quality is way better! I think Panera is over priced for what you get, the combos at Crispers are cheaper, you get more food, and it tastes better. Try the flatbreads - the Asian chicken is delicious (they all are!) and I have yet... More

Always a good choice for a quick, filling and healthy lunch or dinner option. The wait staff appears to be overwhelmed sometimes and the families who have never taught their children how to behave and to not be so messy are a continuous hassle. The least they could do is help to clean up the mess. At times it looks... More

I've eaten here at least a dozen times, and I've never been disappointed. If you're visiting Florida, you owe it to yourself to try Crispers. I've had many commercial tomato bisques, and Crispers' is among my favorites. They do a good job with their flatbreads, too.

A good place for lunch in downtown Lakeland. Some good healthy choices and when I was there they had some nice fresh fruit. The tomato soup was really tasty.

The food is is very good but I think is kind of pricy. But if you have the Loyalty card you can get really good deals and freebies. They are short staff. But they do the best they can to help and serve you.
