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.

“Awesome BBQ”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

I love pulled pork, brisket, ribs that fall off the bone, and BBQ that isn't soaking in a thick BBQ sauce. This place meets all of the above- great slow and low cooked meats, homemade BBQ sauce on the side, and homemade yummy side dishes (I had the potato salad and the baked beans). No room for dessert, sadly. It's only been open for 6 weeks, but they have great food and service, and if they keep it up, should be around for a long time!

“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.
