Default Vero Beach dining ??

Where do you eat when you're staying at Vero Beach? I've heard it's kind of far from "civilization" so does that mean you eat almost all your meals either at the one on-site restaurant or bring your food, stopping at a local grocery store on your way? We've stayed at Hilton Head where the food situation is more like "so many places to eat, so little time!" but from what I understand Vero isn't like that. What do you do?

Did you go to Vero Beach? Where did you eat? We are going Thursday and was just wondering the same.

No we didn't get around to Vero Beach. We can't get ourselves away from vacationing at Hilton Head (currently vacationing there) and don't see us going there soon. One reason is that DH isn't fond of sunbathing since he had Melanoma a few years ago. But he does love golf, so between that and the abundance of trees(shade), HHI seems to be a more suitable vacation spot for us.

We've only stayed there once for three nights. We picked up groceries on the way from WDW for drinks and snacks in the room. Two of those nights we ate at the on-site restaurant for dinner and lunch every day at the pool. The restaurant was great. I'd recommend making reservations. The store near the pool has a great selection of food. Really tasty sandwiches, salads, fresh vegetables, burgers, pizzas... We would order there and either eat at the pool or back in the room. The one night we ate out we got a sitter through Kids Nite Out and took an uber. Don't remember where we ate but it wasn't memorable. Hopefully a VB owner can help you out with more off-site options. I'm pretty sure we could've done better but we didn't put much effort into looking for a place. The resort is awesome! Hope you have a great trip.

we are VB owners and have only eaten on-site with snacks and microwave options from the local Publix nearby. The Green Room has good options as well as the table service restaurant (hint: you can order take out at the hostess station for room meals if it is crowded and you can dine in room or on the room balcony if the no-see-ums don't run you off). The counter service pool area has a nice selection for a now or later option by the afternoon. There is a walkable Italian deli/pizza place nearby but we have never tried it. The resort is awesome and very relaxing. If you get bored take a trip to Kennedy Space Center north via 1A1.

We stayed at Vero once and ate at Mulligans Irish Pub - which was in a strip mall about 15 minutes south on the left. We ate outside - tables in the sand with fire pit - the food was good and atmosphere fun.

Cool

We stay at VB often, and have never gone hungry. There are numerous good restaurants within a 15~20 minute drive, either south of the resort in Vero Beach proper, or over the bridge to Sebastian. The front desk usually has a printed list of nearby restaurants. That said, the on site restaurant, Wind and Waves, is very good and the "grab and go" shop by the pool has a good variety of sandwiches, salads, beverages, and.......DOLE WHIPS !

Vero is my parents favorite resort. They eat at Squid Lips in Sebastian every trip - usually multiple times. As for us, we've never been...like yourself, we've enjoyed HHI so much, it's hard to want to do something different (and VB is less convenient for us, travelwise).

We very much enjoyed the Green room while we were there.

Just a few days ago I was speaking with a CM who used to work at DVC Vero Beach. Her favorite local places to eat were:

We like Woody's BBQ in Sebastian.
