Sean Ryan’s has been a part of Vero’s downtown landscape for the past 5 years and is one of the most authentic Irish pubs in the area. I just found out that my friend, Chef Chet Perrotti has been the Executive Chef here for the past year, so I had to stop by and check it out! While he is best known around town for fine Italian dining, I was curious to see what influences he would have on an Irish menu. While you will find your typical Irish pub favorites on the menu such as fish & chips, corned beef & cabbage, and shepherds pie, Chef Perrotti suggested that I try a few non-Irish dishes to see the diversity of their menu and all it has to offer.
In case you are not familiar with Sean Ryan’s, it’s located in the heart of downtown Vero Beach on 14th Ave across from the old theater. Ample parking can be found behind the building with additional street parking if the lot is full. Upon entry into the restaurant, the large centrally located bar is the predominant dining room feature, with additional seating along the sides, and a private room near the back that can hold up to 50 people.
Now let’s dive right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat!
