Mexican chocolate ice cream!

My local friends brought me here to enjoy ice cream after we walk the boardwalk. Portion sizes were not your typical American humongous, but were still generous.

This a great place on the beach for a sandwich and homemade potato chips. The sandwiches are generous and we split a crispy grouper sandwich and a order of homemade potato chips. Delicious and very satisfying. Casual seating inside and out. The staff is very eager to please.

A quaint cafe overlooking the ocean just off the Boardwalk on Ocean Dr in Vero Beach. While walking on the boardwalk, we came across this place after seeing a sign for ice cream. Decided to walk in and get a bite after running into a patron outside who told us the food is freshly made and we wouldn't be disappointed.... More

We stopped in "The Boardwalk" this afternoon for some tea. We decided to try the clam chowder and were we happy we did! It was the best we've ever had. The service was friendly and fast. The owners came out to greet us and shared some of the other recipes. (The chicken salad sandwich looked sensational.) The owners also offered... More

This small restaurant is across the street from the beach. We ate here last year, and I looked forward to returning. I had fish tacos last year and again this year. Home made tortillas, nice, mild chunks of fish. Home made salsa, fresh greens. My husband had steak tacos. He said the meat was very lean, not at all greasy.... More

Great stop for lunch. Amazing view. Great fish tacos. The yucca fries were melt in your mouth creamy inside and perfectly tender crispy on the outside. Staff were friendly and attentive. Loved it!!!!

This is a beachwear-type cafe where flip-flops and swimwear are acceptable. There are picnic tables with umbrellas for shade. The cafe is directly across from the ocean and while you can't see it because of the elevated boardwalk, you can hear the ocean waves crashing against the shore, providing a relaxing atmosphere. The food is mediocre, but with only two... More

The Boardwalk is across the street from the boardwalk. We've had lunch there a few times (good, yummy) but our goal is usually an ice cream cone at night. Then we either sit outside at one of their tables or cross to the oceanside. They have low cal, sugarless, etc., but I'm all about the bear claw ice cream --... More

The ice cream is really good, and walking the boardwalk at sunset is perfection. They have more than ice cream, but most people go for the ice cream.

Visited Boardwalk for lunch while at Jaycee Beach. Was excited to try because menu looked great, place was fresh, new, welcoming, and clean. The beer and wine selection was impressive for a small beachside place. The service was friendly, welcoming and efficient. We shared a boardwalk salad which was a little disappointing. It's made with iceberg which had several brown... More
