Be patient. Go early. The line for a table gets long. Everyone in your party must be there to be seated. Music every day and night.

One of the most fun places in ft lauderdale. Actually located at Laudrdale-by-the Sea on Commercial blvd. right on the beach though with great food, inside/outside seating, several bars, music and dancing in the evening. Mixed crowd, all ages welcome! Enjoying the sand and surf? Pop in beach side for a bite, or arrive street side for your meal and... More

Realize it is a bar first and restaurant second. It was very loud. When the band started playing, I thought it must be karaoke night. So maybe on a different night/different band might be better. The hostess only spoke 2 words "follow me". The waitress didn't have much more to say and never came back to the table after our... More

My friend and I had a wonderful long lunch at Aruba Beach Cafe with delicious strawberry and banana daiquiris and seafood salad and chocolate lava cake. The daiquiris were made from real fruit, the seafood salad contained fresh seafood in delicious dressing and the chocolate lava cake with ice cream was to die for. The coffee was good too. The...

My sisters, cousins, and myself went there out at night and ate outside. The restaurant overlooked the beach (so beautiful). The food and the drinks were reasonably priced and so delicious!! They have a bread called Bimini bread and it's so good, we got a half loaf and it was more than enough. Our waiter Curtis was really nice and... More

First time at Aruba Beach Cafe. A Saturday during April. The place was upbeat and busy. Plenty of help . Beverages from bar and food served in a very reasonable length of time. Our server Savannah was excellent. All four of us were happy with our lunch choices. I liked that the staff was dressed in "uniforms" and wore name... More

The food was good, the bar had a good selection but man was it busy. It took a good hour or more to be seated. It was fun to have live entertainment but that left talking to your party very hard. Would I go back? Maybe?

Conch fritters were crisp outside with a flavorful creamy filling. The sandwhich are huge. I had the Italian combo. Split the sandwhich with your partner. I liked that the red onions were finely sliced. It was just the hint of onion taste and texture needed. Service is fast. Eating outdoors is wonderful.

Had to go there to see if all the reviews are true and they are. We had a wonderful meal. The place was busy they had a band playing and great views of the ocean while you eat. You have to pick the right time so you don't have a long wait to get in because it is really busy... More
