Can be windy but what the heck, you have a beautiful view. Can eat inside or out. Happy Hour and you have to try the deep fried mushrooms.

I don't know what has happened since they closed for the annual cleaning a few weeks ago. We went on Sunday for lunch. Beautiful spot on the beach but the food has gone downhill. I had the VIP beef sandwich. Can you say where is the beef??? Plus quality of beef was poor. My wife ordered a salad with shrimp... More

This place was recommended by our hotel as a fun beach bar. I doubt I would have found it on my own. Tucked in behind the Driftwood Inn on the Beach road, it has a great history about Waldo and his ecclectic collection of ships bell's, bar art, and unique construction ( It all looks like driftwood) I can imagine...

Good for lunch during the week, fun on the weekends to people watch. This is a vacation hotel, so lots of activities by the pool on the weekends. Nice outside deck patio to enjoy your meal and a view of the beach. Stick with sandwiches, the plate meals can be iffy.

This casual intriguing beach bar and grill is part of a larger resort that has been in this location for many years. As soon as you drive into the courtyard of the... More

This restaurant is in our fav. location. Great affordable food. Nice staff and love the views. Bad thing is that people were smoking right next to our table at the table next to us. Yummy french dip and husband had lobster sliders.

Best salads in Vero Beach...the Cobb and chicken salad are stellar. A little pricey but once you see the portion its understandable. Good service, strong drinks and a must is the battered mushrooms! The ambiance and decor is a one of a kind landmark. If you have visitors Waldos is the place to take them!

We like going there for happy hour. Waldos is on the Ocean so beautiful views and ocean breeze along with the quirky setting. Bartenders are friendly food is great what more can you ask for.
