Description: Recently relocating to the low-rise hotel area at Alhambra Casino & Shops in Eagle Beach, Hollywood Smokehouse is the island's only smokehouse where we are "doin' it low and slow" over hickory and apple wood. Classic barbecue favorites include pulled pork, beef brisket, and ribs, and our award-winning tacos that gave us our first place win in Battle of the Food Trucks. Catering also available for groups. Our mixologist has created one of the most unique craft cocktail menus in Aruba, featuring our signature Bourbonwood Lemonade made with fresh lemonade, blackberries, Elderflower, and agave.

“Comfort food at its best!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

This was a tremendous experience. My buddy and I decided to order combo platters and share as everything looked so good. So glad we did. The smoked grouper lettuce wraps are delicious. So is everything else on the menu. The environment is great and excellent service.

“A must of places on your list to eat.”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

The staff was super friendly and engaging. The atmosphere is a family friendly place. The food was phenomenal. And I especially liked the key lime pound cake with bourbon blackberry sauce we had for dessert. That came highly recommended by the manager, and I can see why.

“Very good pulled pork”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

The restaurant is located at the Alhambra Shopping mall, it has a very relax atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were a party of 8 the first night, and we tried different things, I had the Korean pulled pork tacos, at it was very good, the rest of the party had ribs, pulled pork sandwich and hamburgers and every body was happy. We went again with a bigger party, it was 12 of us, the restaurant was busy, but they accommodate us, we had to wait less than 10 minutes. My intention was to try something else, but I went again with the Korean pulled pork taco and loved it again. The portions are big and the prices are very good. Next time i go to Aruba I'll be there for sure.
