We were in Aruba from September 8th through 14th. To our surprise, the place was closed up! All signage was removed, equipment inside gone. Only the tables and chairs remained. ARE THEY CLOSED PERMANENTLY or just for the low season???

Dry, over cooked terrible barbecue, clearly the locals there have never had good barbacue. Perhaps it's tourist like us who get drawn in?! But I'm certain like for us, you will be "one and done"

The smoke is done well. Our favorite was the smoked grouper You can get it in a taco or salad. Both excellent. Good beer selection but you can never go wrong with a Balashi. The had Abita and that's not something you usually see in the Caribbean

We look forward to our annual visit to this unique restaurant. This year was equally satisfying as all our previous visits. They have a variety of unique drinks and several smoked meat options on the menu. Korean lettuce wraps are a favorite!

Korean smoked grouper is one of our favorite lunches on the island. Ice cold big Balashi tops it off! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This place is one of our favorites on the island but don't hesitate to check out lunch.

When my wife didn't feel like going out, I walked over and got a couple of smokehouse burgers to go. Two of the best burgers we've had anywhere. So we went back to sit inside and chat with the manager over another great meal (I got the mixed BBQ with a little of everything -- too much -- had enough... More

Nice modern American diner type restaurant. Service was good, food was really tastey & relatively inexpensive in comparison to other restaurants. If you are looking for a good quick bite that doesn't cost a fortune then this would be a good place to visit.

Hollywood Smokehouse has kept up the quality of the food and service since they moved to Alhambra Mall three or so years ago. We love the food and drink and find the prices to be fair.

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.
