We were in Vero Beach for Spring Break and went to one of our favorite restaurants, Waldo's at the Driftwood. We usually get good service and the food is always great. We had an exceptional experience with a very good server named Joel. Thanks Joel for making our meal one to remember.

We stopped here for lunch and were able to get a table in the shade on the deck. The service was a little slow, but they were also pretty busy. The food was okay, but nothing memorable. It's really the beach location and the "driftwood" style that made this place fun and attracts a crowd. There was live music while... More

The restaurant is located in a beautiful spot right on the ocean. It is situated in the driftwood hotel which is an interesting place. The food was ok. It was really the location that makes the restaurant.

During a recent trip to Vero Beach for the Taste of Vero Charity Event, I had the opportunity to visit the Driftwood and eat at Waldo's. Wow, do not miss this place. Located right on the beach in beautiful Vero Beach, FL, the property features a pool that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The evening we stopped in a great band... More

Ok went with a group of regular retirees who meet up late afternoon for the after 4PM happy hour. Reasonable drinks along with happy hour appetizers on the beach - enough said - try it!

Great place to go with a family that would love to swim and enjoy the total funkiness of an old Florida establishment. National Historic Place. Motel looks old from the street - old cypress wood with fun stuff as adornments. Totally worth the adventure of it all in rather staid main street in Vero Beach. No doubt a fun place... More
