This Vero Beach standard has held on only because of it's view & location, in my opinion. The food is only "ok." The service is slow & often comes with attitude. The mixed drinks are weak.

If you are looking for a place to sit on the river in Vero, this is one of the very few choices we have, so enjoy it. Just don't expect to be wowed by anything other than that view.

One of our favorite places in town for lunch, dinner or a couple of drinks. Great river views. Sunsets are frequently off the chart.

This is a place we go to often and always take visitors. Sit out on the deck in time for sunset and watch the bridge light up. Their food is always fresh and good. Fish tacos and onion straws are favorites. Grouper is usually on the menu and worth an up-charge.
You can make reservations for inside but might have to wait for outside dining for dinner.
They do have take out.

A spectacular sunset view of the Indian River Lagoon make this a popular place on lovely clear evenings. We enjoy a nice meal on the back deck before shows at the Riverside Theater across the parking lot. Reservations are a must during the season unless you just want to hang at the bar and listen to live music. It can get loud on weekends and its true that Jake Owen might stop in unannounced when he is in town.

This place has so many different faces at different times of the day.
Most of the time it's a relaxing hangout for locals and boaters on the Indian River lagoon, who can dock outside and wander in for lunch and dinner. The food is very good for the price and tables are available inside or out overlooking the beautiful lagoon. At night it's a favorite hangout for the younger folk, and gets quite lively with live bands playing at weekends.
On a Sunday morning, it is a very laid back all-u-can-eat brunch with a fabulous selection of dishes. Arrive early, get a table and eat slowly. Watch the game on the multiple tv screens and make brunch last all day!
