We ate here twice during our stay. The food overall is excellent. The price is a little on the high side but so are the portions. I would prefer a little less portion with a more reasonable price. This is also an extremely noisy enviroment. My wife did not like it. In addition we had a party of 12 and... More

I came to Fort Lauderdale on a quick vacation and loved Aruba's! We actually had dinner here our first night and came right back for lunch the next day.

Had a wonderful dinner at this very busy restaurant right on the beach. Food was a little pricey, but delicious! Be sure to order the Bimini Bread!!

One downfall to this lovely spot was that the outside tables were literally on top of each other. We asked to be seated inside and had an open window view instead. It was a bit pricey, but the food and drinks were delicious. Our waitress was excellent, wished I had gotten her name. What a pleasant and accommodating server.

This is a great place to eat and enjoy the ocean. It is situated in Lauderdale By The Sea just south of Pompano Beach Florida. Very nice atmosphere with good live music while you enjoy food and drinks. A great experience and a must visit.

Great place to visit for lunch or drinks. Sliding doors put you right on the beach or choose the bar for drinks and live entertainment. Food is good but a bit pricey. You are paying for the view and it's worth it. Very friendly staff and atmosphere of fun so expect some noise.

Stopped in for lunch. Food was decent, prices were outrageous for what the food is and the portion. A sandwich, basically like from subway was $15. Get real!!!!! A corona for $6. No thank you. Service was excellent and that was it. Never again will i patronize this scam place.

Over priced food that is mediocre. Staff is usually overwhelmed but nice. Drink were good and at average price. Probably would not go back though.
