My favorite place in Fort Lauderdale. Great raw bar and the mussels a 'la crème are the best mussels anywhere.

Aruba has many things going for it: Beach, food music and ambience. There's also a deck area, but one must get there early because Aruba is a very popular place. I ate inside by a large window which was opened because it was fairly windy. The beach goers where right outside on the sand. Kudos to the owner(s) for having... More

Ate appetizers. They were ok but very noisy. Typical restaurant in tourist area. Liked the band playing.

Just a great location. Not great food. Met some old friends and one visiting from NY. Sat us in the back behind a pole. One friend had several food issues. They were not interested in modifying menu items.

Been coming for many years, usually just for drinks but had lunch this time. Seafood Quesdilla was unique, yet really good. Also got the Lobster Salad Club that was big and pretty darn good.

I picked out this restaurant because I wanted to eat somewhere with a view of the ocean. My partner was very growly, for a number of reasons, but he recovered when our food arrived. He had the Hibachi Chicken Teriyaki and thought that the meal was very good and very reasonable. I had the Seafood Quesadilia which was delicious. Nothing... More
