Very entertaining!

We tried this place on a Friday night. It has a cool vibe and an interesting crowd. Love the outside bar scene.

This place is just plain fun, Good music, good food. I love their cajun snapper and black beans. Great spot for people watching. Especially on the weekends. One of our favorite places in LBTS

We stayed in the area and meet up with family for brunch. Half price meal if you sit at the bar and order a drink. We all loved our meal and the view was wonderful.

Seriously. Location. The view is amazing and they have live music. My boyfriend had the market crab (for $39) which I thought was really expensive but it was delicious! I just got a quesadilla ($14), but it was fabulous! The orders of food we got we were very happy with and expected things to be more pricey because of the... More

A spot on right on the beach is pretty much all that it has going for it. Food isn't great, service isn't great, price isn't great. Felt like they just want to turnover the tourists. Good points is that it has a live band and bartenders are pretty cool. That's all....

We held our sales leadership meetings in Fort Lauderdale and enjoyed a casual dinner at Aruba Beach Cafe. Great food, reasonably priced, excellent views, lively atmosphere. It was enjoyed by everyone! I would highly recommend if you are looking for a casual dining experience on the beach -- literally walk out the door and your feet are in the sand.
