Riverside Cafe: A Vero Beach Favorite
The Riverside Cafe is a fun and lively restaurant with a casual atmosphere and a relaxed environment. There is plenty of parking and the views from the bar area overlook the gorgeous Indian River.
Riverside Cafe features live music on weekends and has typical bar eats, but definitely a more upscale version of them. The service is spotty, meaning it can be really good sometimes and only average at others. One thing is certain: Riverside grills a mean hamburger!
On my visit, I took my brother, niece, and her friend who was visiting from West Virginia. After running errands all day, we did not feel like getting dressed up for dinner. The Riverside Cafe was the perfect choice for dining because you can come as you are.
We opted to sit in the bar area at a high top table. I had not been there in quite some time and was glad to see country music recording artist Jake Owen memorabilia all over the walls.
Jake played Riverside Cafe during his early career and comes to visit when he comes home to Vero Beach. He occasionally stops by and breaks out into song.
A Good Variety of Menu Items
The Riverside Cafe is open for lunch and dinner serving a variety of sandwiches, salads, and entrees.
Riverside Cafe has 24 beers on draft. Try a beer flight sampling where you get to choose 4 different types of beer to taste.
If you stop in on Sundays, you can try the for Riverside Cafe’s All-You-Can-Eat Brunch Buffet from 10Am-2PM. It includes a raw bar with Peel & Eat Shrimp, Oysters, plus an omelet, waffle, and carving station.
