The Ocean Grill proves location isn't everything.

Lunch today was a major disappointment. First, my beverage arrived in a broken glass. Second, my $19. Lobster roll arrived on a burnt roll, the Lobster salad was totally non-discript. Third, the decor of this restaurant is "early attic" and due to the excessive hard surfaces, noisy and hard to... read more

Unless you're there early, make a reservation or be prepared to wait an hour. The good news is, that if you need to burn an hour, you're sitting right on the beach with incredible views of the ocean. Go for a little walk...have a glass of wine...hopefully you're in Vero because you're on vacation. Relax! We had a lovely meal.... More

Huge disappointment. Advertised as Seafood specialty. Grouper was tasteless, overlooked. Sides had virtually no flavor. Wife's salad also tasteless and poorly prepared. Won't be going back.

The ambience, vistas, wait staff and lunches in particular are superb. Such a relaxing atmosphere. One of the places we always bring friends.

We have been here several times for our anniversary celebration as we stay next door at Costa d' Este, HOWEVER, this last visit 2/21/15 was TERRIBLE! First no reservations for 2, so we waited for 1 hr and 20 min to be seated, told them it was our anniversary, they acted like, so...who cares...we were seated in a booth with... More

Fabulous food, great staff and marvelous ocean views. This place has it all and then more!!! I like to go at both lunch and dinner as the full service menu covers it all. Always fresh seafood and many specialty desserts. No one should leave Vero Beach without a visit to the Grill. It speaks for itself, so come on by... More

It's a Vero institution. Regularly overrated. The service is good. The food and menu just meh. But is definitely an institution. Not cheap, not great. But good. And great location.

it had been years since we had been to the Ocean Grille, so it was fun to revisit for lunch. Same gorgeous ocean view. Same dark wood with eccentric items to look at in every direction. Decent food and decent service.

We fortunately arrived early enough to get a window table. The setting is superb overlooking the lovely beach. The menu has a good selection of casual food with some main dishes, sandwiches and burgers. Our party ordered three different fish dishes and one burger. All were good although not exceptional. If you are lunching at Vero Beach, do try to... More
