    Our window table couldn’t have been better with the panoramic view of the ICW and the ambience of the nearby boats. Entertainment provided by the busy pelicans. The sun shone, balmy breeze wafted through the restaurant and the waitress was friendly and attentive. We did not have to wait long for our lunchtime meal to arrive which was of an excellent standard. It was perfection.

    Setting is calm and relaxing. Food is good but the mixed drinks were weak and the Mango Margarita was bland and tasted like watered down lemonade. The sides with the meals are very limited in choice. Need to add a signature side such as house made chips to their menu. All in all still enjoyable overall.

    Food quality has decreased substantially over the past few years and is very expensive. It is okay to bring visitors, but I wouldn't eat there regularly.

    We are totally sold out on this restaurant! It’s our go-to spot for whenever we eat out in Vero/Sebastian. Servers are absolutely outstanding, knowledgeable, pleasant, and attentive. Food is great - so many options, including fresh catch of the day. One recommendation from us (with grandkids) is to add a shrimp option to the kids’ menu.

    Top notch!! Service was amazing. Our waitress was very attentive. We had two Tito‘s berry lemonade, which was very tasty. We had the buffalo snapper bites for appetizers, which were amazing. And then for dinner, we had the seafood trio and mahi tacos, and shrimp skewers.… This was the best paying for our buck and we went to a few other restaurants this trip, and this was cheaper, but so much more delicious. And we love the ambience. Casual… Loved it

    Great waterfront (Sebastian Bay) location. Service staff is friendly and accommodating. Rita, waitress, experienced and knew the menu well. 3 of 4 meals were great. The cod sandwich was over done. Sebastian has a lot of restaurant competition however Captain Hiram’s is always a go to restaurant. Would recommend.

    I loved the place and the food. However my husband had the fish and chips. It was so small he was still hungry after we ate. He was so disappointed. I had tuna nachos which was outstanding and the New England Clam Chowder was great! We will go back and try other options.

    It was noise but filled with mostly happy noise. Food was amazing, drinks were delicious and pretty reasonable. Service was excellent. Our server was very attentive. One of our guests didn’t like the entree they ordered and hardly ate any of it so I thought maybe she would have asked if they could replace it. It was prepared well, guest just didn’t like it. We were tourists so it was a good choice

    Was disappointed. Had to follow up on our reservation with check in stand 3 times. Madison would say she would check on things, wander off and never update me on our reservation. Had 7 pm reservations, didn’t get our food until 8:30. Brody, the waiter, was good. Food was tasty but cold. Don’t go during busy times.

    We were seated promptly, however wait a very long time to be recognized by the waitress. After she took our drink order it was a long time before we got our drinks. They were out of an appetizer we ordered, Calamari was burnt. Entrees, mediocre. 3 hours for dinner, was way to long.

    Six of us had dinner at Blackfin's last night. The place was slammed! It took awhile for the food to come out of the kitchen, understandably. We kept ourselves occupied with starters and drinks and our server, Nicole, was awesome. She checked on us frequently and was very personable. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the atmosphere.

    We had a seat next to the window which gave us a great view of the water. Our server, Crystal, was very good. We ordered a variety of menu items. Fish and chips, steamed mussels, a bowl of baked potato soup, and a hamburger with onion rings. The mussels were excellent in a butter wine garlic broth with toasted garlic bread for dipping. My husband said the fish (cod) and chips were ok, not great. The hamburger and onion rings were greatly appreciated as well as the soup. Two of us had a Bloody Mary. Very good.

    Randomly selected this riverside restaurant for my visiting grandkids--The full moon over the harbor was magical! The menu is expansive! So many good choices! My husband had the seafood pasta medley--delicious! Steamed clams were yummy if just a tiny bit chewy--Lastly, the server was Sam--who was excellent and just attentive enough. Overall, a lovely evening!

    Blackfins has always been a go to place while staying at Vero. However we feel after last night it will no longer be a choice to go there. Husband wanted stuffed flounder they were out he ordered the snapper special. said it was very dry. I ordered the crab cakes mostly filler and very little crab and very dry. I also ordered the lobster bisque which took almost half an hour to get. People who sat in front and in back of us after we were seated had their appetizers and meals quite a bit before us. Based on these issues we probably won’t go back. There’s plenty of great places to eat in the area without having to eat a sub-standard meal at their prices.
