Hello Everyone,

My name is Konstantinos “Dino” Lykopoulos, Owner and Executive Chef of The Greek Grille & Gallery located at 14828 Tamiami Trail North Port, Florida. On behalf of my family, staff and myself, we want to thank you for visiting our website.

I was born and raised in Greece in a small town where my family prepared all the meals daily from scratch. This is where I learned to appreciate the flavors that true Greek dishes offer. My family moved to the U.S.A. when I was in my late teens and it was at this time that I made a promise to myself that one day in the future I was going to open up my own restaurant that served “TRUE GREEK” delicacies that were not available to the American public. By “True Greek” delicacies, I mean the one’s I missed from Greece when I was a young man.

After serving in the US military and running a variety of businesses including a travel agency in Boston, I was able to move to Florida in 2001. With my family by my side and realizing that now my dream can come true, we opened the Lazy Greek in 2007 located in Venice, Florida where our menu offered authentic Greek Cuisine to all our customers. That made us an instant success.

In 2011 we moved to a larger and newer location in North Port, just 10 miles south of Venice Florida where we continued the tradition of offering all of our customers the true flavors of Greece.

We invite you and your family to come and see us, experience Greek hospitality at it’s best and taste the OPA-licious! difference that we have to offer. We know you’ll love all the authentic Greek dishes in our menu.

All the food pictures that you will see on our website are actual customer orders in our restaurant.
