Great location that was very lively on the weekend

We decided to go to Aruba Beach Cafe on a Saturday night in May. It was very busy but somehow we were given a table for 6 right away outside with a great view of the ocean. Don't believe they take reservations but you can easily put your name in and walk around the area and enjoy the breeze off... read more

Lots of food. My husband loved the Nova Smoked Salmon. We shared a Caesar salad and the broiled seafood platter... more than enough food for both of us and so good!

I had the best conch chowder soup and a seafood salad that went way beyond my expectations. New York prices but well worth it! Very good service too.

I last reviewed this restaurant right on the beach in 2011. It was time to check it out again. No doubt that it is better than ever! Get a table in front of the beach. It couldn't be more beach front, but with all the comforts of an up scale, air conditioned sanctuary! Sure, it is not the high season,... More

Great place to enjoy the beach, have some beers and kick back to live music. Food was good but the laid back fun atmosphere is what makes the place. This spot is best for low maintenance people looking to have a great time. Those who complain about the food or service may have expected something different. Really fun time, would... More

This is a laid-back place just like Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. We went for drinks and appetizers -- both were in the 'OK' category. Drinks were strong but pretty sugar-y, the conch fritters had little actual conch and some of it was tough - obviously frozen. One item you SHOULD order -- the Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings. Yummy!

The music and food was good - especially during Happy Hour - however the servers, bartenders and hostesses all seem to be not happy with their jobs, no smiling or making the customers feel welcomed. All they need to do is smile and look happy and having a good time and it would come across better for patrons. We were... More
