Very NIce Local Place

This is the best part of the resort , a good local place that does not kill you with prices. They have un fussy foods like grilled meat and fish, salads and nice desserts. People serving are pleasant and accomodating

Great old Florida stop for a drink. I had the fishermens basket for dinner, my wife had coconut shrimp. She left some on her plate and my fish was hard to even cut. Would not eat here again!

On the beach, we had live music on a Sunday afternoon. Their hamburgers are 1/2 pomd, very good. They offer several creative oprions, and a build your own option. Their french frys are are big seasoned wedges. Great breezy, sunny spot. It is located at an inn and eating area is beachfront and around the pool

This is one of my all time favorite places to go. The food is outstanding and the staff is super friendly. If you are in Vero you cannot miss out on this local gem. The history behind this place is quite interesting as well.

This had too many "fried" foods. Too much of a "down & dirty" beach "bar". Everything that the 4 of us ordered had been cooked in a lot of oil. The setting is delightful; on the beach! Perhaps it would be best to go for drinks...

Thank you for taking time out to review our historical restaurant on the beach that has been serving up great food since 1947. We are known as "THE LAST OF THE GREAT AMERICAN HANG OUTS". Our menu has many, many items on it that are not fried. Here are some future suggestions for you should you find yourself returning to... More

The place looks great and the location amazing, but we got sick afterwards. Nothing original about the food at lunch. Just go for a beer.

Meal good, service ok, bands great! Best when outside. Smokey inside and very dark. Small area for the band. Would be great if a roof for the band was provided outside. It could still be heard inside and at the bar outside!

This place was OK with a fast food menu but a good selection of beers. Seemed like a bit of a Spring Break type hang out.

A great place to dine if you are in the beach or downtown area of Vero Beach. Connected to the Driftwood Inn, however you do not have to be staying at the Inn to dine here. Sandwiches, Seafood and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available. Have always gotten good food each time we have visited.
