Oceanside Dining

Waldo's has good service, and hit-and-miss food, but the outside oceanfront view makes up for it, Recommended items are mahi fingers, nachos, burger, and quesadillas.

It is right on the property of The Driftwood Resort. The food is really great and not high priced. The setting is lovely and with one exception, the service was impeccable (the hostess was too busy eating to tell the wait staff we had been seated).

This is a local bar, and okay for a drink and a quick lunch! Certainly not my favorite place, . Okay for something to eat after a long trip

We absolutely LOVE Waldo's! Anytime we go to Vero, we have to eat at Waldo's. Their wait staff are attentive and polite. The food is great. We had steak and also fresh oysters, shrimp and Mahi Mahi. The sides were yummy; homemade slaw was fresh and light on mayo; baked potato was perfect. All of the food was superbly cooked!

As a Vero Beach local, I enjoy dining at non-chain restaurants as often as I can. Waldo's at the Driftwood is a great place to bring the family before or after a day at the beach. It has a wonderful history (which you can learn while waiting for your food). The view of the ocean is spectacular. The food is... More

I live in Vero and love Waldo's. But, I always stuck with the food I liked there. Fish tacos are awesome, quesadillas yummy, coconut shrimp, mountain of mushrooms my favorite ; but then family came to visit and they ordered things I hadn't yet tried and everyone of them said they were very happy and content with their order.

Great food, drinks, view, environment. Manager Lee walked over to four seated tables that had our umbrellas down (see the sun), and put them back up, yelling at his customers that we couldn't adjust umbrellas because one of his employees may get injured. I come to this area frequently with my fiancée and family. The waitstaff was great. If I... More

I would like to explain the above gentleman's review. Our umbrellas do tilt however due to the narrow area of the walk way and the need to keep the umbrellas from flying and injuring an employee or a guest we keep them in there full upright position at all times. If a guest takes it upon themselves to tilt it... More

This place has a great atmosphere, a good beer selection, and a good food selection. The restaurant is right next to the resort which has a true islander feel. Also quick easy access to the beach out back.

This great place is enjoyed most by folks who do not mind to be on island time and enjoy a seat outdoors or indoors. Sometimes umbrellas are not available for outdoor seating-due to wind. If that is a problem for you, request an indoor table. Outdoor seating is wonderful if you like to be outside-and enjoying the warm sun. Happy... More
