“Pretty High-End for a Poolside Bar and Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Had 2 lunches here during our stay at the Vero Beach Hotel. Found service to be better the first time, when we sat at a table near the bar. Service was very spotty if one sat along the pool deck. Nice that they had heat lamps on to make sitting outdoors more comfortable during an unusually chilly FL day. Bar menu includes the usual mojitos and other tropical drinks, as well as some nice wines by the glass. Menu includes sandwiches, salads, burgers--something for everyone!!

“Good food, view over the sunbathers!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Heaton's is the pool bar and restaurant at the Vero Beach Hotel & Spa. If you're not sunbathing, you sit at tables between those sunbathers and the pool, so you'll need to look past that for the view of the ocean. The menu is basic, the cups are plastic--it's pool food. We had a pretty good, grilled fish sandwich with OK fries. Get lemon for the water--it tastes unfiltered and is not tasty. And, since you're at a hotel, the value isn't great either.
