The "Early Bird Specials" are really the way to go, excellent portions and it's not as long a wait at this time of day.

When we left after an hour and a half, folks were waiting and the parking lot was full-certainly signs of a popular restaurant, The early bird specials offered between 4-5:30 are delicious and more than adequate in size - boxes available! The shrimp scampi and turkey pot pie were both superior in quality and quantity. A choice of desserts makes... More

After having waited for half hour last night, we were pleased to be seated almost immediately. We were seated in the outdoor area -- it has covered sides and they had the heaters turned on so it was very comfortable. The shrimp/lobster bisque was delicious. Crab cakes were awesome -- full of crab. Dolphin was o.k. Vegetables were overlooked. Waiter... More

I was at the bar enjoying a cocktail, when I saw a woman with a dog on her lap sitting at the bar. When lo and behold, the man with her pulls out a baby bottle and proceeded to feed the dog while the dog was on her lap! The BARTENDER said NOTHING!!!!!!! Never again will I feel comfortable there,... More

Have eaten here many times over the years, this time we opted for dinner. Salad bar has a nice selection. Menu is extensive -- both of us enjoyed the fish dishes that we ordered. Waitress was attentive and friendly. Dolphin has indoor and outdoor seating. Didn't sit at the bar this time but that is always a great place to... More

Enjoy cocktails and pleasant bar food overlooking the river. Feels like you are in on a boat. Take some crackers to feed the catfish on the way out and enjoy the view in the evening.

Had lunch here about 1:30p on Feb 9. Location is great with available outdoor seating on the Indian River. Restaurant is awesome historic building, and decor is wonderful! Sorry to say that the Hostess was not cheerful, or welcoming. Not how one wishes to be greeted when you first walk in the door! Server was good, and food was served... More

Happy Hour at the Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House is an excellent value. All appetizers are half price. We enjoyed peel and eat shrimp and smoked fish dip. Both were delicious. I think the happy hours are 4-7. So, you could easily go and have a full meal of appetizers, or enjoy an appetizer and a glass of wine in... More

This was suggested to us by a staff person at the Florida Oceanographic Center. We arrived late for lunch and were seated in the fully enclosed porch. It was a windy day, but lovely on the porch, with a beautiful view of the Intercoastal Waterway. The service was good and the food was very good. It's a little pricey, but... More
