Big plus of this establishment is the location under the bridge over the bay and at the edge of the Riverside Park. So if you sit outside, on the terrace, you may have amazing views, especially sunset is charming. Otherwise the interior is over-airconditioned and with TV screens everywhere, so no romantic atmosphere there, rather for meeting with friends. The... More

I had mahi special, DH had grouper special. Both very fresh and well prepared. Rice pilaf side. Waitress friendly, quick and well versed on Menu. Many craft beers. Crowded and a bit noisy but no rush and sunset on the river was beautiful. Def recommend.

After a great day of fishing just off the restaurant, they cleaned and served us the freshest fish ever! Brought in the catches, they ask how you wanted prepared, and bam... it's amazing. The view is of the Inter coastal Water Way, lots of boat traffic, fun place for kids, couples, families, and a date night. Wait staff was very... More

Located on the east side of the north Vero Beach bridge is a great restaurant with wonderful view of the sunset. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and prompt. A very nice seafood and chicken based menu with only 1 steak sandwich and a rib eye as a special. Conch was also featured several ways on the menu. Very tasty food... More

This place rocks! Great food, fun vibe and a beautiful location. When you do go, you must have the crab cakes and also try -- my new favorite-- fried green tomatoes! Soooo good!

If it's hot outside you may not want to sit on the deck but inside is great people watching The Jake Owen fish sandwich with deep fried onion strings are... More

Spending a long weekend in Vero Beach, we wanted our first dinner to be seafood on the water; but relaxed and not stuffy. Riverside Cafe fit the bill perfectly. We headed over shortly before sunset and asked for a table outside on the dock. We started with some beers, they have a HUGE selection of draft beers, and some appetizers... More
