Great location right on the beach.

This place has a great relaxed vibe. Most weekends there is music outside by the pool. The best part about this place is watching the people that come here. Every time I go here there are one or two "unique" people to watch. If you are looking for a guaranteed good night.... Try... read more

We often come to Waldo's for lunch with friends. It is always the best outdoor view and menu in town. Service is fast and fun especially when we get "Debbie" as our server! Prices are reasonable. We love it there.

Nothing to dislike here - you can dine inside or out! The Food is excellent and the drinks are too! The Prime Rib is my favorite! Band always playing and the ocean breeze is great!

We went to have some drinks and to eat . The food was good but the waitress messed up our drink order and it was an older crowd. Not what I was told.

Good beach food, fun and historically interesting place and nothing like a margarita beachside! Our family always makes plans for at one visit per vacation.

Hot day, nice breeze off the ocean (on the deck), and a great view of 'happenings' on the beach. We had coconut shrimp and chicken quesadilla's ... both excellent. Service was prompt and continuing. Because of the sun on the deck (a bit to windy for umbrellas) they offered sun screen spray if we wanted it. Nice touch!

This is not fine dining but it's a good solid place to eat and a great view if you are outside.. I typically get their cobb salad which is consistently one of the better ones anywhere.

Frozen drinks to start with great food too follow. We enjoyed the three shrimp platter. From the shrimp to the sauces too match it with was awesome. Also had the quesadilla which was jam packed with deliciousness

We thought this may be a fun hangout, but we ended up only getting a drink and an app. We had the sampler... our oysters were still dirty, the shrimp was over-fried... So needless to say we left and went somewhere else. Perhaps just come here for a drink to sit by the ocean.
