Casual Fast easy food, ocean view

The place has good , small meals that are fast and easy for a quick bite . It's right on the water so a good view . Very casual . Only downside is you dine next to the hotels pool so lots of people and kids running around - if that doesn't bother you then no worries .

Here you can site outside next to the pool, almost on the ocean, where you can see and smell and feel the beauty of the ocean while enjoying a lunch or dinner while listening to live music. Very romantic and just a fun place to enjoy.

Without a doubt, the best beach location in Vero. BUT...having dined here several times, I have yet to have a food experience that comes close to the view. Go to Mulligan's for a similar view and much better food, or pack your own and sit at ocean's edge.

This eatery is located adjacent to the beach with open air dining. There is interior seating, as well, but when weather is nice outside is the place to be. It's very scenic and relaxing. Wait staff is cordial and attentive and their menu has a fine selection of sandwiches and full meals. Prices are rather reasonable, especially for its location... More

Dinner at the beach - what a concept. But in 90 degree heat, little umbrellas over tables barely provide any shade. The seafood is mostly deep fried, but the coconut shrimp was tasty. I never had my water glass refilled, and the wait staff barely checked on us. They got the order correct, the drinks were good and reasonably priced.... More

Excellent lunch on the ocean. Beautiful setting in an old and quaint local place. Inside seating if the weather does not cooperate and fun to watch all those enjoying the pool. Fast seating and service for lunch and great food and drink.

This is a casual spot for dinner on the water. The view is great. It is in a resort and you walk by the pool to get to the outdoor deck seating. We had appetizers - the quesadilla was ok but the land sliders were great. Overall, a good spot on the water for an average meal and drinks. Service... More
