As a local my demand for a great restaurant comes with high standards for consistently good food, great service, a gorgeous beach view and fun entertainment. Waldo's is my #1 go to in town. The food is always spot on. Whether we decide to stop in for a few appetizers or spend a while enjoying a full course meal, I'm... More

Excellent indoor /.outdoor bar with excellent seating outside on the oceanfront for lunch or dinner. American style menu with all the tourist norms. Rather average food is moderately priced for a oceanfront resort. The best bet on the lunch menu is any one of the salad offerings which are all very large and very good. In season, there is good...

Waldo's is another Vero Beach historical site- full of eclectic antiques and collectibles from the sea. The food is good- cobb salad and fisherman's platter are great! Waldo's is causal dining. Patrons are coming off the beach for a drink and lunch. It's part of Driftwood hotel so it's very popular. Plenty of seating by the ocean. A great place... More

Only went to bar to see it and have a beer. Its very small. Nowhere to sit, only a few bar stools. I could tell it's where older locals stop for a beer. Located in a hotel complex on the beach. The outdoor dining was busy.

This restaurant is a must do for lunch or dinner while at Vero beach. Meals are very good and well priced. What makes it fun is reading about the history of the restaurant.

We arrived at 8 pm for a birthday dinner celebration. The person who was suppose to be taking names for the dinner wait list was off in a corner and never looked up or addressed us as we walked in. Unsure where to go or what to do as there is no sign to wait to be seated, we ended... More

My wife, son and I had dinner at Waldo's for the first time last Saturday night. Walked in and were seated outside close enough to see the water thundering in to shore under a large moon. Courtney, our waitress, was excellent in making recommendations after asking about our food likes/dislikes. She also let us know that the Happy Hour Specials... More
