We are the Fast & Furiously Passionate.

Four decades ago, Lou and Joy Moshakos opened their first restaurant in Florida. Fast forward to today, and LM Restaurants has grown into a dynamic, family-owned restaurant group led by the next generation and continues to surprise and delight you, our guests.

The LMR Family vision has always been to nourish our people, fuel the community, and give hope to the greater world through our local and philanthropic outreach. Flashback to mid-Covid pandemic, LMR stayed open for our community and continued to employ our Team. Our goal is to remain a respected industry leader and community partner by being dynamic, creative, and collaborative. With your help, our family of restaurants raised over $140,000 for World Central Kitchen, a local charity supporting our global neighbors in the Ukraine. As immigrants, Lou & Joy have a great passion for reaching out to those in need and providing opportunities for them to grow to their greatest potential.

On this Giving Tuesday, we Thank You for your continued support. We Thank the LMR Family Team for being the Heartbeat and showing our passion with incredible food and hospitality. We Thank our community for continuing to rely on LM Restaurants to “Feed the Stomach, Feed the Soul, and Feed the Spirit of Hope to go on.” We take pride in continually raising the bar a little bit higher every day.
