I love the Ocean Grill. A Vero Beach landmark, I've been here many many times over the past 28 years that I've lived in Vero Beach. The history and charm of this iconic restaurant with it's eclectic decor can't be beat. The view of the Ocean is amazing, and the food, drink and service are consistantly great. Last night I...

The menu did not include many seafood dishes. We went for lunch while driving A1A and had a craving for seafood (oysters) and they were no where to be found on the menu, the menu consisted mostly of sandwiches. The decor was designed to make junk look elegant. The service was very slow and inattentive. The tables were very close... More

Beautiful view of beach. Historic restaurant with dark wood interior and good vibe. Great food with lots of it. Clam chowder is very good. Garlic spread for crackers yummy. Great seafood and steak selections.

It is Friday night during off season and the streets are empty. It says something about this restaurant that we had to wait 1/2 an hour to be seated. The place was really busy. Sat at the bar with good service and then seated at a very nice booth. The server Donelle from New Zealand was attentive without being overbearing.... More

Simply a great restaurant and bar. The location is superb, overlooking the sea and the food is more than up to the view. We had the beef tenderloin, the diver grouper and lobster tails. All were great. The cobbler as a desert was hot and on point. A great place

My wife and I recently visited Vero Beach on our anniversary and ate dinner here. The fried shrimp was awesome and my wife's fried oysters were good as well. Some of her side dishes were not as good as the main dish. The view and ambience of the restaurant were very good. Not sure I would make a special trip... More

Great food and service. They do not take reservations and sometimes on busy evenings waiting times can be up to 1 hour or more. It takes time to order your meal, get your meal served, so you can not be in a hurry. Overall a pleasant evening. We much prefer to go in for lunch.

The restaurant is right by the ocean, we arrived just on time for a few pics on the beach and a great sunset. The restaurant is great: great sea food, great staff, plenty of choice. Nicely decorated for Halloween. I woud recommend to sea-food lovers and would definitely go back.

The food and service here was great! So much food, so if you have a big appetite this is perfect for you. Desserts were to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting Vero.
