Our son got married at the Lido Beach Resort. We enjoyed a beautiful dinner for the bridal party and breakfast the next day for the wedding guests. It was a first class event. I highly recommend this restaurant and the Tiki bar.

Ordered a filet medium rare - came well done and dry. Appetizer was served as we finished our meal. We were so looking forward to a beautiful meal in a beautiful spot and were so disappointed.

We went to the Lido Beach Grill out of convenience and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and his wine suggestion spot on. The food was very well done for small plates. We had a very comfortable booth.

I love coming here for Happy Hour. Great view of the sunset and beach. Had their chicken wings and beef and lobster sliders. All was extremely tasty. Margaritas are pretty good too! You won't be disappointed.
