Love oysters??? You will receive a plate full of delicious, plump oysters - fried. I was delighted to see a plate full of oysters, rather than a half a dozen. The oysters were small, very tasty, and easy to eat rather than 6 large ones. I enjoy not having to cut the oyster to eat it.

The Ocean Grill is one of the oldest restaurants in Vero Beach, and you can tell the minute you walk in the front door. It smells worse than an old age home. Cat pee was the first thing that came to mind, and the smell lingered until we left the place two hours later. The servings are huge and you... More

Made reservations for five o'clock an early dinner. Arrived and were seated and ordered clam chowder, salads and drinks. Salads were fair cole slaw dry needing mayo Chowder was okay. Meals arrived one was wrong and the Jake Steak was prepared wrong, grease with no flavor taste. Two seafood plates were small, scallops cut in half with four counted, fish... More

My friends and I like to go to the Ocean Grill for lunch. The food is good. Atmosphere is upbeat. It is a tradition in Vero Beach.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood and happen to find yourself sitting at one of the oceanview tables, feel free to avail yourself of what the Ocean Grill has to offer- a lovely view, with decent service, and basically terrible food. Steamed clams servicable, steak woefully, woefully cooked (rare, came out medium well, refired to medium), sides laughable... More

We have been to the grill multiple times, as we live in vero. The inside atmosphere is like an antique shop and there are plenty of things to look at while dining. The prime rib is good and they do cater to gluten free which is nice since I am. The service is usually very good with knowledgable staff to... More

Great location. Make the effort to get a window table. It will greatly add to the experience. The restaurant has its own parking lot and that was very helpful. Clam chowder was good. Clams very tender. Crab burger and roast beef sandwich good also.. Service was prompt and efficient.

With so many other seafood restaurants in Vero, Ocean Grill is not one of my favorites. We did have a wonderful ocean view, great service and half the meal was good. My fried shrimp was not crisp but soggy or hot. I sent back the chips as they were stale. The steamed mussels were excellent as was the crab cake.... More

A bar overlooking the ocean, especially with a violent wind is a great way to have cocktails. They make some of the best ones on the treasure coast and additionally have a decent menu from the restaurant. Stick to the seafood and you will be a happy camper.
