Welcome to Lido Island Grill

Lido Island Grill is locally-owned by Chef Laszlo, his wife, and two daughters, who, working together created the concept for a family-friendly, casual, local gathering location and eatery. Located at the Lido Pavilion on beautiful Lido Beach in the City of Sarasota, Florida, Chef Laszlo's menu offers island flavors from around the world in addition to traditional beach favorites. After spending time as a traveling Chef throughout the Caribbean, Chef Laszlo is excited to share island techniques, ingredients, and home-made recipes with everyone.

And, yes, he is serving Lido Pavilion's famous Lobster Rolls!

Chef Laszlo and his family moved to Sarasota in 2010 to open Bevardi's Salute in downtown Sarasota. This award-winning, authentic Italian restaurant features house-made pasta, sauces, sausages, and also offers the largest outdoor dining terrace garden in Downtown Sarasota.

About the logo: As is with family-businesses, the original turtle drawing is by Laszlo's daughter but, with full family-input, was re-made into the official Lido Island Grill logo by local artist Tim Jager, who also hand-painted it as a mural on the north side of the Pavilion.  When you stop by the Pavillion, be sure to take a selfie in front of the mural painting and share it with friends.
