Great atmosphere!

I thought the food was pretty good, margaritas just okay but you can't beat the ocean view! The food was very slow coming out. While The waiter was nice, he lacked experience and knowledge about the menu.

Good live bands, good drinks and food. Lunch is always good there. Eat out by the pool on the beach and enjoy the sun and service. A real Florida keepsake! Employees are fast, friendly and accommodating.Dress is very casual including swim suits. Parking is hard to find by well worth the walk.

We enjoyed dinner here twice as we stayed at the Driftwood Resort. It was very noisy -- party happening the first time we went -- but the second night was quieter. The food was average -- we didn't dislike anything we ate -- but nothing was over the top, either.

enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on the deck just off the beach. Beautiful view, great weather and a nice dining experience. Salad, Turkey, Stuffing, Yams, mashed potatoes and cranberries with pumpkin pier

Great ocean view and atmosphere. Try their "healthy" chicken salad platter. Also plenty of ice cold beverages for the adults!

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.

We have been visiting Vero and Sebastian for 30 years and for some reason have never been to Waldo's at the Driftwood. Well, we have been missing out. 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
