Wonderful meal! We came for the Sunset special, from 4 to 5:30, great menu and great meal! We had the grouper and the steak. Both where just wonderful! The serving staff could have not been more friendly or efficient! Topped off with Key Lime pie!

My wife and I go there quite often. This is one of our favorite restaurans in Vero Beach. The food is awesome. Especially the three types of complimentary breads. Need to make reservation.

Had the 24oz porterhouse and it was tender as could be and cooked to perfection. Service was impeccable and everything was great. Our bill was just over $200 for two with a modest bottle of wine but the cost was well worth it.

I am particular about fish therefore no allergy problems but this restaurant is owned by the chef and the majority of items are not seafood so logically yes they can accommodate. But as above call.
