We recently stayed at the Surf Club Hotel on 4700 North State Route , Vero Beach for four nights. This 48 room hotel has a pool, small restaurant and bar and a nice view of the ocean. The room had a king bed, dated tv, bathtub, iron, and coffee maker. There were two deck chairs outside the room. The restaurant was not open during the week for breakfast, but was available for dinner in the evening. On weekends the breakfast area was open. We never saw more than two couples eating at the "Tides" bar & restaurant was open for happy hour but prices were high for drinks. The Tides has no connection with the Tides in South Beach, Miami. It's like night and day. We checked the menu out and most meals started at $20 so our first night went over to the Vinz Restaurant, an expensive wine bar with sitting outside. I ordered a beer first and the bottle was placed at our table without a glass. The young kid thought everyone drank beer that way. The manager later apologized. The salmon turned out to be a toasted sandwich with some kind of cheese. I asked her whether it was canned. The price was steep ($14)for the small portion with potato chips. Later we drove to Muligans near by, where they had a nice happy hour and view of the beach outside. Other restaurants and bars in the area were the Driftwood Hotel, (nice size burgers for $7.50) .The bar was called Waldo's for Happy Hour. I had plans on going into the ocean but changed my mind after a fisherman on the pier caught a six foot "spinner shark" just beside the hotel. He managed to bring the shark on to the beach. I watched him cut the line for the shark and it slowly disappeared back into the ocean. I wish I had my camera at the time. Keep to the pool in the hotel. Why risk a leg or worse.
