Bugaloe is a great value for a beach bar. They have a good variety of lite and heavy food options as well as a classic selection of beach cocktails. Seat yourself and let the waitresses know you're there or you might be ignored for a while. The grouper sandwich and BLT were tasty and not expensive... read more

This casual restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and has some of the best live bands as evening entertainment. The sunsets are beautiful. Happy Hour is from 5-6 pm and 10-11 pm.... More

We just had a few snacks. The drinks were good and the service was great. We ended up staying for the live music and... More

Food was mediocre at best but views are amazing! Tasted like frozen junk. Nothing fresh. If only they had fish tacos. Still a nice place to grab a drink and like the gelato place very near on same pier.

Went for dinner with the family last week. Very relaxed beach bar atmosphere - restaurant is on the pier. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the grilled grouper dinner and it was delicious.

This was a great little bar at the end of the dock . We had drinks here several times over the 7 day stay. We also had some great wraps. This place had entertainment almost every night!

You must stop by Bugaloe Bar while in Aruba. The sunsets are amazing, the staff is friendly and they always have great entertainment. And you must try the Bugaloe Fries!
