Another dump that is prostituting its location to take advantage of ignorant tourists. This place should be burned to the ground. It is filthy and the food and service is terrible. Location is amazing but owners refuse to make improvements and offer paying public a clean atmosphere to go along with awesome scenery.

Waldo's is a poolside bar/restaurant with tons of character and characters =) Great burgers served within earshot of the surf, fun bar fills up on weekends and during season, staff friendly and overall, just a neat place to check out. Driftwood is a classic hotel and centrally located, walk or bike friendly.

They have great nachos, the chicken salad is wonderful. Drinks are always great. Directly on the ocean. They have inside and outside dining. One of our favorite places when we lived there

Good beachside location and interesting story/building. Food good and sizeable, service attentive and even though they had no tea, the waitress went and got a peppermint from her own bag for me. But noisy/brash by bar, but all up good spot to sample Vero Beach idiosyncrasy.

While all tourists and they were slammed yet service was prompt. Typical fried everything menu though servings were generous. Music fun but a bit load and the crowd was fairly roundy for a upmarket group who were all enjoying Margos and mojitos along with buckets of Coronas. The ice tea was also quite good!

The food is greasy just like the kitchen. The old wooden building is very very rustic. Drink and eat outside on the huge deck and enjoy the beautiful ocean view and music.

Thank Paul A
