Best outdoor beach side restaurant

This is my favorite place in Vero for a sit down restaurant with outdoor dining on a deck right on the beach. They have great food and great service and often live music.

We came here to visit my brother for a couple of days who has been spending the winter working in Vero Beach. Having arrived in Orlando a couple of days prior my initial impressions of Florida dining were extremely poor - it felt like nothing was offered but chain restaurants and no soul. So I was delighted when my brother... More

This is a historical landmark so the walk or drive here is worth it plus the food is great: fresh, fast and priced well for Vero Beach. We sat indoors so we could here the guitar player but outdoors looked great with the ocean views. During the weekends they have bands playing outdoors by the pool. This place has great... More

The atmosphere and story that go with this place is worth going. The drink and food prices were low. The service was excellent on a busy night. You can wait out and watch the waves crash the beach or even sit around the pool while waiting. The food was good not great, but I made the mistake of getting ribs... More
