Excellent options, staff knowledgeable

I've been told that all house wines are vegan. Several vegan options, clearly marked, including a vegan cheese fondue and vegan chocolate fondue that are both very good. Impossible meatballs as appetizer or main course sandwich with option for vegan feta. Several vegan appetizers and 2 vegan main course entrees in addition to the sandwich and fondue.

Pros: A number of interesting vegan options, Staff knowledgeable about vegan items, Good service

Cons: Can be crowded and noisy, but not a hindrance

A go-to destination for Vero

Vero Beach, unfortunately, isn't a very vegan-friendly place. However, Kilted Mermaid is one of the few bright spots. They have several items marked as vegan on their menu including an Asian Cashew Bowl that's pretty good. Other items include Spicy Vegan Queso Fondue, Impossible Meatballs, and a Vegan Flatbread Pizza. The atmosphere is kind of funky and fun. Prices are reasonable. Plenty of parking and open late.

Vegan options galore and fun inclusive environment

Vegan options include: queso cheeze fondue, chocolate fondue, Asian cashew bowl, Dahl stew, Impossiball sub, samosas, Mediterranean flatbread (ask for it vegan), roasted red pepper hummus, black bean hummus, housemade cashew cheeze and feta. The Kilted Salad is great too if you sub the goat cheese for vegan feta. Amazing craft beer, boutique wine, cider and seltzer selections and even a few canned cocktails and wine cocktails. Drag bingo monthly, Pride Day celebrations, Irish music and Open Mic on Wednesdays, Hot Jams Trivia Thursdays, live music Fridays-Sundays. There is something for everyone here!

Wide variety of vegan options, cool vibe, great drink selection

The title says it all, but was blown away by the number of vegan options. My favorites were the impossible meatballs (with optional vegan feta) and the kimchi pancakes. But vegan fondue, pretzel, hummus, and I forget the rest😄Very funky and cool vibe, and an extensive drink menu. If I lived in Vero, I would be a regular.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Extensive drink menu, Cool atmosphere

Wonderful food and experience!

We ended up going on a Thursday night and they had a thriving night! We had the vegan fondue, meatball sub, and an Asian peanut bowl. They label all vegan items and have a huge variety of drinks! Definitely recommend

Pros: Lots of options, Wait staff is super nice

The gluten free vegan meatball sub is amazing! The vegan fondue was delish! I’ll definitely come back!

Not good

I wanted to like this place. They had decent live music. I'm mostly raw but not many raw restaurants this side of FL so figured I'd give their vegan menu a try. Ordered the asian bowl. Veggies were not good. Rice was over cooked & bland. The whole thing had a dusty & chemical taste to it. Almost like one of the ingredients had been improperly stored & they microwaved it or cooked it in styrofoam. It was served scalding hot in a foil to go bowl. Not very healthy, taste was awful & I'm pretty disappointed that restaurants think they can serve vegans some wilted bland veggies on mushy rice & we are going to be ok with that. I've had better from chipotle & that ain't saying much😖

Pros: Live music

Cons: Served in foil, Veggies past their prime, Poorly seasoned

Cute atmosphere & snacks

To start we ordered the roasted olives and vegan pretzels with cashew cheese and mustard. The olives came with crackers and the dish itself was okay but a little under seasoned. The pretzels were much better- hot, fluffy and salty! For our entrees we split the Dahl Stew and Asian Cashew Bowl. The Dhal stew wasn’t great. It was bland and lacked any sauce so it wasn’t a stew at all, which left the white rice below it dry. The Asian Cashew Bowl was the best plate of the evening. The atmosphere was adorable and we were able to sit on the patio with our dog! Sadly they didn’t have any vegan dessert options and didn’t seem that willing to provide an option.

Pros: Vegan menu and items clearly marked , Fair prices , Good service

Cons: Limited menu, No vegan desserts

Many vegan options

I’ve eaten here a few times, and they have a dedicated page on the menu for vegan options. The roasted veggie sandwich was pretty good. The asian cashew bowl was the best thing I have tried there. But I found the Dip Trio to be boring and uninspired. Just some broccoli, cauliflower and bell peppers with a few ok dips (the black bean dip being my favorite). There were just some crackers and a small amount of pita bread. It def wasn’t worth the money. I was going to try the korean bbq jackfruit, but I didn’t see it on the menu last time I went. They may have replaced it with the Impossible meatball sub, which I didn’t try because I limit my intake of processed vegan junk foods. Overall, pretty good, especially if you are meeting omnis for a drink, but it’s nothing I would crave or go out of my way to eat. Also, the drinks are just beer and wine and are pricey.

Pros: A full page of vegan options. , Decent food. , Good atmosphere

Cons: Serve meat, Pricey drinks, Some dishes aren’t great

Impossible meat

The decor is awesome. Try their vegan impossible meatball sub, it’s good. They are open late and also have live music some nights.

Lots of vegan options.

Great local bar that serves food and inside their regular menu they have a special vegan menu with great options. Super nice place with live music every Wednesday and even has a terrace outside. Friendly service and very lively. I even went out of my way to thank the owner for the vegan choices and told him to keep it up.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Not expensive , Outside terrace

Cons: Also meat , Lots of fondue’s but non vegan

Nice Vegan options.

They had a dedicated vegan menu with some great choices. The pretzel with cashew cheese was super yum and so was the meatball sub made with Impossible burger.
We were thrilled to find such great options and the service was also very good.
