The shrimp cocktail at Heatons is unbelievably good. Jumbo. Cooked to perfection and chilled just right. They always get the cocktail sauce just right. I had the lobster dinner. Wonderful

Beautiful place right on the beach! The beach setting is laid back, yet slightly refined. We had the corn chowder, jumbo shrimp cocktail, oysters, and the Tuna Nachos (excellente). Our server Troy was very professional and friendly and made a great wine recommendation. We will definitely be returning.

Ordered the Filet with added Lobster and Bernaise. ($66) Medium well. Delivered to table 40 minutes later, well done with no bernaise. Bernaise delivered later was very thin and oily. While manager apologized and wait staff was excellent, it did not make a bad dinner good! Won't be back.

Terrific location on the beach a band was playing . The server was attentive and knew the menu well as to what to recommend for drinks based on our preference. The only reason I gave a 4 was because there was such minimal tuna in the tuna nachos.

Atmosphere & View awesome. Food was good. The server was very nice but over worked so his visits were few and far between. Took a long time for someone to come to table. Long time to receive drinks, long time to get check, etc. but that view was worth it. Hopefully staff will increase as we come out of pandemic.

Ate here when they first opened. Clean, fun, good food. This time, dirty floors, bathroom appalling, food came out cool not hot. Prices WAY to expensive for what they serve. Noise level very high. Not conducive to a good conversation. This place would be better served as a burger beach bar.

Very nice experience! Food was good, but service was outstanding!
Our server was professional, friendly, and attentive.
Outside patio was clean and socially distant to suit my taste.
Would like to see fish tacos or couple other items on the dinner menu.
I'm more of a small plate girl.
All in all we enjoyed ourselves and will go back.

Went here because we were in Vero FIU our son’s lacrosse tournament. This place is outstanding. We had some tuna tacos…oh my goodness gracious! To quote the great Suzyn Waldman. One of the best dishes I’ve ever had! My son had a steak that he asked, “how do they make it like this so that it like melts in your mouth?” Wife and I had a Bayou Pot. SERIOUS!!! Let me tell you, if you go to Vero Beach, you must go here. Out of control. Great service too. Great scene right on the beach, and good crowd.

Out of the oysters, my choice for an appetizer. Then I ordered the special (Mahi) and they “just ran out”. This has happened every time I’ve been there. Last time they ran out of rose.
So I ended up ordering another fish the waiter said was white and flaky. They brought our entrees while we were still eating our salads and left our salad plates until we flagged someone down to take them. The fish so over cooked I couldn’t eat it. Not going back.

The poolside terrace location, shaded by a patio roof, was very enjoyable with ocean breezes. The food, however, fell well short of expectations. We waited almost 45 minutes to get our food, some of which was supposed to be hot and arrived cold. Our server provided no updates or explanation for the long delay. Frankly, you can walk south on Ocean Drive less than a quarter mile and get much better food and service.
