If you come to Lauderdale by the sea you MUST come to ARUBA's. This was one of our favorite places. We came to "Happy Hour" almost every day and the bar tender was awesome. We had the Jamaican Jerk Chicken wings, the scallops in bacon, and a variety of other $5 app's. We ate dinner here on the beach side... More

Right on the beach, nice open doors and breeze, but we were in the shade so quite pleasant. Service was rapid and very pleasant, and attentive. Fish tacos and lobster salad sandwich. Reasonable price, nice area for walking and window shopping in Lauderdale by the Sea.

Our group goes here annually when we visit the area. The restaurant accommodates us without incident or delay every year - and we have about 25 or 30 people in the group. The food (and drinks!) are incredible and the service is always good as well. Highly recommended. If you are with a smaller group, request a table by the... More

The food is really good. The prices reasonable. There was a live band. Lots of partying. Right on the water by the dock. Where all the action is. Slow service but all the food came out perfect and and hot even for a large group. The noise was too much for me. But if you love to party,go for it

Loved the atmosphere of this place - great view of the beach and the water. Valet parking was an unexpected perk. Came for a celebratory lunch from buying a time share - the price was right - the food was tasty and very well presented. While the service was a little slow at bill time - ordering and getting our... More

We had a mixed experience at Aruba this evening. We pulled into their valet parking, and the attendant suggested we pay an extra $5 "to park close". We declined. We had a great time sitting at the bar through happy hour. Half price drinks and delicious appetizers for $4 apiece. There was enough food so that we were full after... More
