This place is right on the water, and that part is nice. I can't say much else positive though. The food was average. No frozen drinks for happy hour, and you have to pay to use the restroom about 500 feet off the boardwalk. Will not repeat.

Visited the Bugaloe on Friday 5 September and Sunday 7 September 2014 whilst staying at the Riu Palace along the beach. Needed some real entertainment unlike the rubbish offered in the hotel.

We loved the location of the pier the restaurants sits on, surrounded by the turquoise blue water. Best part, the prices are much lower than the resort food and drink prices.

GREAT place to enjoy a drink and view the ocean! My husband and I came here every day we were in Aruba! We tried a few items on the menu, none that were great! The ceviche was the best! The servers and bartenders MAKE this place! So friendly! We had great drinks, fun conversation while listening to a live band.... More

Went to Bugaloe's for their happy hour specials. I had the beer missus had the cocktails which we both enjoyed. Quieter during this time with a nice friendly atmosphere from both customers and staff. Definitely worth going during this time.

They are at the end of a pier so the scenery is gorgeous. The staff is the epitome of "happy island". The mojitos are incredible and the food is good. Try the happy hour, watch the sunset.

Went for happy hour and got drinks and nachos. The drinks were not very strong but they were 3.50 ea. The nachos were pretty good but not much food for two. Still we were glad we went. And it was a great place to enjoy the wonderful ocean view.
