By beach location. Outdoor and indoor seating. Beach views. Limited parking so be prepared to drive around or walk. Valet parking limited. Food very good with nice sized portions. Inside seating very noisy!

My wife's salmon came raw and she had to send it back and order another dish. We think it may have been frozen. No apologies, no free drink or dessert for their mistake. Very pricey as well.

Four of us had dinner on a recent Friday evening. All meals were very good. Beautiful view of the beach. The problem---so much noise that we shouted during dinner. It was crowded . Valet parking is a plus.

Tuna was no a good cut. Jerk chicken didn't really have a flavor. Service was good. Not quality I had been told to expect.

Daughter and I stopped in with my new little Granddaughter to share a bite. We had the Coconut Shrimp and a dozen Oysters. No drinks. Waitress was all over it. Oysters were fresh. Not great shrimp, but ok. Super cute spot to eat outside. The Pavillion there at Lauderdale By The Sea is a great place to sit and enjoy... More

Aruba has a beautiful view of the Ocean. They provide entertainment daily from the afternoon on. That is a nice touch. I love their Coconut Shrimp and Aruba Burger. The Aruba Burger is marinated in teriyaki sauce with grilled pineapple and cheese. So Good! Service is also very good.

I've been to Aruba's several times when I travel to Pompano Beach. It's great for drinks, music and atmosphere. I visited with my friends as we were staying over night on our way to St. Thomas. We were seated promptly on a Saturday night, ocean view table with very wobbly seats. It was at least 10+ minutes before our waiter... More
