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.
