Llloyd's Restaurant is just across the street from the opera house, and they feature a nice menu with a variety of offerings at very reasonable prices, with good service and a pleasant atmosphere.

Use the SpotHero app to reserve a spot in the parking garage in the building next to the Lyric. Was inexpensive and we were in and out quickly.
