Lakeland residents are about to have a new go-to destination to cheer on their favorite team when Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux makes its Lakeland debut on Monday, June 21.

Located at 3772 US Hwy. 98 N., the new Walk-On’s restaurant will kick off its grand opening celebration with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce at 10 a.m. To add to the excitement, guests can enter a drawing for the chance to win free Walk-On’s for a year. Walk-On’s Lakeland will accept entries through its Facebook page and in the restaurant during its first full month of business and will announce the winner the week of July 19.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join the vibrant Lakeland community,” said Franchisee Mike Lester. “There’s nothing like our authentic, mouthwatering Cajun cuisine in the area, so I’m confident that Walk-On’s will be a hit. Plus, our game-day atmosphere is perfect for cheering on all of your favorite Florida teams. We’ve hired 200 winning All-American team members and we can’t wait to celebrate our grand opening with everyone next week.”

When Lakeland’s first Walk-On’s opens, it will mark the sixth in Florida and 53rd systemwide. Walk-On’s Lakeland will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.

At Walk-On’s, each dish is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients to bring its mouthwatering, Cajun cuisine to life. The diverse menu features unique twists on game-day staples and upscale takes on Louisiana mainstays, such as Crawfish Etouffee, Duck & Andouille Gumbo and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding.
