Newest Culinary Options at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort Include a Focus on Local Seafood

by , Food Writer, Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort

From miles of unspoiled beaches to golf courses, shopping and just plain fun, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort is a quick trip down Florida’s East Coast from Walt Disney World Resort and a favorite for Disney Vacation Club members.

The resort recently debuted a makeover that includes a new restaurant, market and bar with new menus; the expansive Wind & Waves Grill, with the adjacent Wine & Waves Market. Poolside, look for the new Wind & Waves Bar.

The 68-seat Wind & Waves Grill has a casual, beachy feel with classic nautical touches and features on-stage cooking with an oak-fired grill and brick oven. It’s American cuisine with a focus on Florida seafood and locally sourced produce, such as brick-oven-roasted Florida clams in local IPA broth with fennel and garlic, oak-grilled grouper and the restaurant’s signature shrimp with creamy cheese grits. The flatbreads made in the wood-burning oven include versions such as cheeseburger, barbecued chicken and a bacon-lettuce-tomato creation. Kids will love the interactive desserts.

Wind & Waves Market is open daily and offers “grab ‘n’ go” selections as well as freshly prepared dishes from breakfast through dinner. Think hot breakfast sandwiches, yogurt, smoothies, specialty coffees for breakfast, and burgers, hot dogs, deli sandwiches and salads throughout the day – perfect beachside eats. You’ll also find grocery items that formerly were in the Island Grove Packing Company shop. And best of all, Disney’s classic Dole Whip!

Wind & Waves Bar features poolside craft beers, signature cocktails and light snacks.

Guests can make reservations by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Tables in Wonderland and Disney Vacation Club and Annual Pass discounts accepted.
