Description: A canopy of palms sway gently in the ocean breeze. The warm sun melts your cares away. You have discovered Heaton's Reef, oceanfront oasis where the food and drink are as fabulous as the views. Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the outdoor pool at Vero Beach Hotel & Spa, Heaton's Reef attracts locals and visitors alike. Open-air seating takes full advantage of the beautiful natural landscape and balmy weather. Our dining menu complements the setting, offering simple, tasty variety to satisfy your cravings. The full bar tempts you with signature cocktails as well as the classics, all expertly prepared. In all, Heaton's Reef is a laidback respite from the world at large, where people watching and ocean gazing mesmerize, and the large flat-panel TVs keep you abreast of the game scores.

“Excellent service, view and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We loved this little restaurant bar area at our hotel. Excellent service, delicious food and a view to die for..what's not to love?
Wish it had been open later. It is near the hotel pool, not far from the beach..during the day waiters visit your beach chairs to take orders. Nice.

“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.
