This place is tucked in the back of the vero beach hotel & spa.walk through the cobalt restaurant & outside to the right. Cute little bar with $5.00 drink specials & $5.00 appetizers for happy hour which are very good. Right on the ocean.view is wonderful.service is excellent every time we have gone. Wonderful place on a balmy night.

We ordered from here frequently while staying at the resort for a long weekend. The menu has lots of different options for adults from fresh fish sandwiches to salads. The smoked fish dip was really good and not fishy or smokey at all. However many of the items we tried to order they were out of like lobster rolls and... More

We didn't eat at Heaton's. We only had cocktails. The bar staff was friendly every time we were there. They make the best Pina Coladas anywhere! With a little rum floating on top.... Mmm! Mmm! Good!

We stayed at the Vero Beach Hotel and Spa with a group. While sitting on the beach we ordered food from Heaton's. The food was really good. Service was efficient and with a smile. The fish sandwich that we had was excellent.

I love coming to this little bar at the pool of the Kimpton hotel. Everyday there is a $5 drink special like house wine or cosmos. Grab a drink at the bar and then head to a lounge chair facing the ocean. Great place to meet friends to chat and relax. It's our "go to". Never disappoints.
