We tried vue on 30a as our last diner place for this trip down on the coast. We had the crab cakes, delicious; the scallops and pistachio crusted grouper, beautiful and the key lime mousse and cheese cake, what a way to finish. The view of the beach is making everything every better. Despite the fact there was a wedding... More

Nice beachy vibe along the dunes with old school country club style. We have come here several times and never a bad experience. I recommend the pistachio encrusted grouper or the scallops. Most seafood here is good. The wedge salad and the deconstructed Caesar are nice starters. Try to come before sunset for the money shot along the dunes.

While the view and ambiance are nice, and the service was friendly, this place does not compare with the best in the area when it comes to food selection , food overall taste, etc. Honestly everything we had to eat was boring except for an exceptional desert. We were so hoping to add to our list of go-to places for... More

We have been here a few times this winter because the food was really good and the price was exceptional due to the 2-1 specials. We are only there in the winter so do not know if those prices are year-round or not. I have celiac disease so eat gluten free. There are only 3 choices for me, but the... More

Check for seasonal specials...2 for 1 dining, 5 -6 happy hour. As the name implies, the view from the Vue at sunset is worth a happy hour stop (even if you don't eat dinner). Filet for $24 was a good choice for the special. I loved the Vegetarian Plate.

Beautiful view at anytime of the day. Early Bird Specials are fantastic. Service not so hot - waited an hour before being served. Must have been a bad evening for the kitchen. A definite must visit and dine location. Also check out the bar menu.

We have owned a home on 30-A for 5 years and just tonight had dinner at The Vue. Friends came to visit and wanted to eat there. I made a reservation on Open Table for 6. Open Table said no to 6, but yes to 4. I called and they added 2 more to our reservation. We arrived early to... More

We chose this restaurant for a special celebration and we were so glad we did it! We chose an outside table, even if it was a little chilly, to enjoy better views. Food was amazingly tasty and fresh and the staff was very friendly. It is a little expensive but you are paying for great quality food and amazing atmosphere... More
