Been going here for over 20 years. Fun atmosphere with live music, good atmosphere right on the beach and a variety of items to select from on the menu from appetizers, sandwiches to entrees. Prices remain reasonable and good for couples, friends or families.

I read the reviews and was really excited about going here. I was born on a Caribbean island so I know island food. Unfortunately this did not measure up. The atmosphere was good and of course it was right on the beach but the food lacked flavor and spice and that was a disappointment especially for the price.

My husband had the two over-stuffed fish... More

Lauderdale by the Sea boast about their very popular beach. And, in the middle of it all, is "Aruba". A restaurant that is situated right on the beach providing an excellent window view of bathers, ocean and the pier. Aruba is a destination restaurant that enjoys a robust business. We went there for lunch, ordering an appetizer of bacon wrapped... More

We ordered four blackened Mahi sandwiches. The server was very attentive.Everyone was pleased with their meal. The ocean view is lovely. We come here every year on vacation and stay in a hotel within walking distance.

A nice casual dining experience. Food and drinks terrific! The fried shrimp dinner was tasty and a large portion of shrimp! The Lobster /crab chowder was a real treat!
