Food was only marginal. Onion rings were the worst my husband ever had. Burgers were OK. Not cheap for only passable food but location great.

We went to this restaurant a couple times because we liked the menu, service, view and thought it was a good value. The location was also good when we were on Palm beach to do a snorkeling cruise.

My wife and I visited the Bugaloe several times during our last trip to Aruba 5 years ago. This time we brought the kids (ages 11 and 9). We all loved it and will be hitting it up again before heading home.

Onion rings were awful soggy and mushy. The grouper sandwich had more bun than fish. Never going there again.More

This is a great place to get ice cold beers and delicious good. The wait staff is very friendly. We are here several times during our vacation because it was close to where we were sitting on the beach.
