This place has become a favorite place for my wife and I and to take guests that we want to show a good time. Parking can be a problem. They have a parking lot with attendant that helps direct you to whatever parking there is. If you arrive after 6 you may very well have a parking problem that could require a walk from a block or so away.
They are so busy they don't take reservations for parties less than 5. That is a draw back for two couples. However they close after lunch and open for dinner at 5 PM. If you are "in-line" a bit before 5 they will take your name and call you when they open for dinner and have a table for you. The peak season for all tourist attractions in this part of Florida (Central East Coast) is December through March and somewhat into April. This place is not only a tourist attraction it is just a great restaurant, with gift shop and fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean. If you are lucky enough to get a table on the beachfront you can almost touch the waves at high tide.

The appetizers are fantastic (we have tried several). The house Chardonnay is a California wine that could rate with the best wines from anywhere in the world. With 4 people a bottle is just about right. We have tried about 1/2 the entrees on the menu and have found none of them wanting for quality, quantity or flavor. The wait staff is always nearby and very attentive. The kitchen staff must have many items pre-prepared as the wait is never excessive. I never leave this place without wanting to give everyone a special thanks for a nice experience. Yes, you need to have some room on your credit card or $$ in your pocket but sometimes things are just worth the cost.

We used to love to eat at The Ocean Grill in Vero Beach, where the food was fresh and the atmosphere comfortable and relaxed. However, now the place is overrun, tables crowded too close, an abundance of noise, and prices much too high for what you get. The fish sandwich, at $18,95, contained a tiny piece of grouper , which was overcooked. Too bad the restaurant has changed so much. doubt we will return.

Loved the decor and the amazing bar overlooking the ocean. The prices looked a little high but after eating we realized once again, you get what you pay for. Very fresh fish, incredible bread with blue cheese butter and the house salad dressing was delicious and unique. Great atmosphere and attentive service.

What a neat restaurant right on the ocean. We went there on a Sunday night (probably around 8:00 pm) without reservations & were seated almost immediately. All pf the employees that we came into contact with were very cordial & eager to serve & provided great service.The place had a lot of atmosphere & both the drinks & the food were "top shelf". We will definitely recommend this restaurant & hope to return when in the area again.

We had reservations at this lovely restaurant on a Thursday evening. The service, food and atmosphere were great. It sits up from the beach and our view of the ocean made for a memorable experience. Definitely would return again.
