Was told about this restaurant from a friend in Vero Beach when we were leaving. Since it was on the way we decided to stop by. So glad we did. Everyone from the hostess, server and cooks we could see in the open kitchen, were extremely nice. Our server Katie was amazing. Definitely get the onion crusted chicken and corn fritters. We will be back next time we are in that area. I did get to meet the owner as I was waiting to use the facilities. Vary nice lady. Oh and don't get me started on the desserts

Our first visit. Restaurant was musty smelling and fruit flies galore! I swatted one and it remained on our table the entire meal! The second issue was a food allergy. My husband has a gluten allergy and his salad came with croutons under the salad. The waiter said the "salad person" was gone for the day and he wasn't aware how it happened. Obviously, the waiter didn't check the salad and didn't understand cross contamination. This was unfortunate because the food was good. However, bugs and gluten aren't on our dining card.

So sorry about the fruit flies! Since we are on a scenic lagoon with outdoor dining we do our best to keep our dining tables impeccable but it's not always possible especially during this hot rainy season we all are having. I'm assuming the waiter thought the croutons were our gluten free ones since we offer gluten free breads and a full gluten free menu. We are happy you did say the food was good!

Have been for lunch and am always disappointed. Most of the dinners were acceptable, but nothing to get excited about. For the money, you get a much better meal at Ocean Grill in Vero Beach and to me, it is well worth the additional drive.

My husband and I celebrated my birthday here and what a great surprise we had. Starting with the free valet parking, this awesome riverside restaurant is truly not to be missed. The filet mignon dinners we enjoyed were just perfect. Our before dinner martinis were excellent, service impeccable, atmosphere charming and a delightful place to have an unforgettable dining experience. Photo is the mini-cherry cheesecake adorned with a "Yellow Dog"!
