This 75 year old place is really interesting. Cool bar and reasonably priced. It is a motel with a indoor/outdoor restaurant by the pool. Located right on the beach. Service was great. We visited at happy hour and it was busy. Sadly there were a few unattended kids jumping into the pool. We had to move to another area to... More

The food was pretty good the fried calamari is great. On cooler days the deck is the place to be, pool in the middle is kinda strange but the scenery was nice. Right on the beach and usually has live music. This is a piece of local treasure everyone should see at least once.

We really like Waldos. We love being able to sit out on the patio by the ocean to eat. The food is simple but has always been well prepared and good. The servers have always been very friendly and fun to talk with. Simple but good. Pricing is again fair for the type food they serve with the great atmosphere.... More

My family ate dinner here tonight. It was odd walking through the bar, then beside the hotel pool to get to the restaurant part. Once we got to the host, it felt like a restaurant. Food was good. View was amazing. Waiter was super busy and gave 100%. Great place in Vero.

Great location. The food was good, portions were fairly large, and service was okay. Prices were a little high for what you got. If it hadn't been outdoors on the beach I would have rated it just average, but the location makes up for a lot. (if you can eat outside - we stopped here to eat a second time;... More

What a fun restaurnat tucked into a hotel (Driftwood). Right on the beach - fabulous view. Food was above average and service was very quick, but not rushed. Gotta get the 'Bucket' - 32 oz of some sort of rum concoction - yummy!

I originally visited the Driftwood Inn and ate Peanut Butter Pie when I was in high school - 40 years ago! Oh my! This is a cute, casual dining opportunity. During Turtle hatching season they must turn off the outdoor lights so the baby turtles go to the sea so dining is abbreviated in late summer. Well worth the sacrifice... More
