Bugaloe is located at the end of a pier on Palm Beach between the Riu and Radisson hotels.

If you're on the beach looking for a good lunch, it's the right spot. The booze is reasonably priced and the sandwiches and wraps are both good and reasonable. They don't automatically pile on the French fries which is good. Many people want a light lunch and it hits the spot.

There is a lot of activity on the pier with shuttle boats taking folks out for water activities. It acts as entertainment while you are eating.

I read the reviews and though it would be good for a moderate family dinner but I was wrong.
My kids wanted Nachos and what i got literally was a bowl of chips and a cup of cheese whiz.
Service was nice but very slow.Entertainment was good so my though here is it's more of a bar to hang vs eat

Thank you for visiting us over the holidays. We are indeed a Beach Bar & Grill hangout. The nachos you ordered are really a bar-food/snack and should not be considered as a main meal. We hope you would like to visit us next time for dinner and choose the Grouper or Surf and Turf. Also, please make sure to stop by on Crazy Fish Monday, since we have a special fried fish basket, fresh out of the ocean for only US$15,- a plate! We hope to welcome you back soon, and surprise you and your family with the great choices we have of main meal courses, which can be accompanied by live band music and an awesome sunset view!

This place is very good except for the old rusty tables! The food is great and the service is good, but it takes a long time to receive the food.

We visited Bugaloe's multiple times during our recent trip to Aruba. The seating is right on the water, which makes it a really nice place to eat - particularly in the evening.

The fish sandwich is awesome - one of the best we've ever tasted!

It's less busy right after sunset, when many of the patrons leave to eat at their hotels.

Had lunch with friends right on the beach. The grouper sandwich was delicious and their signature bugaloe drink (rum, champagne, peach schnapps, peach juice & sangria) was very good. Just sit back and watch all the action in the ocean. Just a great place to be and only wish we had been able to see the sunset!
