Bugaloe is a 2 minute walk through the sand from the Riu resorts (near the Hilton and Marriott). The beach bar is located on a piece surrounded by the ocean. The food is DELICIOUS and fresh. We leave the resort to have lunch on the pier and loved our meal. We shared a few appetizers and loved them all. We... More

My wife and I had lunch at the Bugaloe on February 15th. Great service by the bartenders, however it was the quality of the food that is responsible for my rating. I had the grouper sandwich. The grouper was extremely thin. I felt that I was just eating grouper-flavored bread with lettuce and tomato. A man sitting next to me... More

Dear Richard, First of all thank you for sharing your experience and visit to our bar. Even though the service was great, we are sorry your lunch was somewhat disappointing because of the food. The grilled Grouper Sandwich should have a nice chunk of Grouper on it. We are sorry this was not the case and will take this back... More

We went for lunch. Pricing was very good and the quantity, quality and service was right up there compared to other spots. I can only guess that most of the food is fresh. Other spots it was obviously frozen then thawed and fried. Speaking of fried- the French fries were awesome. Sandwiches were good. Fish was great. All the folks... More

Stopped in just to check it out and stayed about 4 hours :) This place is fabulous. Great view, food and bartenders. My favorite drink is the Amaretto Sour and I have never had one as good as I had here. I asked the bartender about it and he taught me how to make it his way. AWESOME! We are... More

If you're looking for a great local bar with plenty of atmosphere, this is the place for you. We happened to catch a salsa instruction hour one night, which was absolutely hilarious, and the patrons all had a good time. Drink prices are average, bartenders are friendly and attentive, décor is overwhelmingly of the sea and boating. A lot of... More

Just returned from third visit at Bungaloe-I love the place. Very fair prices for food and drink. Service is very good and all of the staff is very friendly. Very good burgers salads and sandwiches . Best of all being right on the water with awesome views. Used to be able to dive/flip off side into water but that's frowned... More

This place has a great ocean view, although the service is very slow! And the music is really load, probably a younger persons spot.

Our family of five had lunch here yesterday. The service was fast, accurate and very welcoming. The food was also very good. The only thing that was missing was a rest room HOWEVER, there are porta-potties just off the pier and I have to admit they were VERY clean!!!

Dear CaribDrmer, Thank you for visiting Bugaloe for lunch and it makes us happy you enjoyed the food together with service and ocean view. At this moment we are building new rest rooms at the pier, therefore we currently have porta-potties at the end of the pier. Our cleaning lady makes sure they are sparkly clean and we are glad...
