We requested a table for 10 people when we arrived. It was an hour wait. We waited. Checked in twice after the hour was up. We were told we would be seated at one of the 2 large tables that were freeing up. When those tables were being cleared we made our way back to the hostess and were told... More

Went there twice during our short visit to Vero. Both times there was awesome live music. Not too loud; we could still enjoy the music and hear ourselves talk and enjoy our meals. One band called "Live Bait" was super. Right on the ocean. Great atmosphere. Definitely recommend!

Ate at Waldos in a family party of 19. We had a table right on the ocean,it was busy and we had a small wait but not very long at all. The restaurant setting is quirky, the food and service were great, we would definitely return

We had lunch at one of tables on the porch, overlooking the pool and ocean. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming.

Fabulous in every way. We were here on a 97.1 FM Anniversary Dinner. Food and our server Mark was great! We absolutely loved the Waldo's Red beer and our food was wonderful. Certainly a repeat.

We stopped at Waldo's for a late dinner. I guess we missed the nice beach front atmosphere. Walking into the restaurant bar area there was that distinct bar Smell! Yuck! We sat out on the deck much better. Things in Vero close way to early. Very hard to find food after 10pm. Luckily we got to Waldo's at 945pm. Our... More

I love Waldo's. It is on the ocean and you may sit outside or inside. The environment is casual and it is fun to walk around to enjoy the decor. Prices are mid-range and the food is good. The staff is pleasant. We have been there many times and plan to go again. I have also gone there with family... More

Can't say enough about good things about Waldo's - we happened upon it by accident, when there was a 90-minute wait at the restaurant we were awning to go to. What luck! During a 7-night stay nearby, we ate at Waldo's twice. In our party we had soup, salad, fish, shrimp, steak and a burger...and all was fantastic, with generous... More

great fish and chips, seafood platters, fried shrimp, oysters, conch fritters, salads, as well as plenty for the non seafood eaters. Get the voodoo bucket. A must do when in Vero. Hidden away in the Driftwood.

Thank Randy J
