My favorite spot to take a break from the beach; especially when Ruth is working the bar! She is the best!! Tropical vibe, calypso band; and the best mojitos in Lauderdale by the Sea.

I've only had one experience with this restaurant but the number of people who have had multiple experiences with this restaurant speaks volumes above this humble review. We started with the Bimini bread which was fantastic. Many of us had the mahi mahi sandwich. Everything was tasty and fresh. The service was also good. The restaurant was packed when we... More

Went to Lauderdale by the Sea to walk around and ate lunch here. It was busy, but we were seated right away and the food came out fast. Salad and burgers were huge and delicious. Service was great. Would definitely go back.

Inside and outside dining right on beach. Ate inside because it was windy. Good service. Won tons were good. Wanted just a regular piece of fish. A couple of pricey meals with a lot of different types of fish in it. Would like to see separate selections. What we had was basic and good. Would recommend.

Great location on beach, nice decor and vibe , food was okay but they need to do something about the birds on the patio..tons walking and flying around you while you eat. We were sat under a decorative tree and had birds relieving themselves all my very the table, into drinks and on my shirt...

Everything at Aruba is always very good. Happy hour and live music, excellent location. We love the fish tacos, the five spices shrimp and most of all, the sunday brunch.

Late lunch of apps and drinks were quite satisfying. $5 Rum Punch specials were a nice treat. Do not miss the Grilled Jamaican Jerk Wings! The thyme makes then special. Crab dip is REAL crab and excellent. Waiter was a gem. View is so nice of the Atlantic. We will be back.

We ate here a couple of times. They have great service and good food. Entree portions are a good size. They are located right on the beach and if you sit outside you get a really nice breeze off the ocean.
