    Typical big American feel. Oysters are massive, mussels are absolutely drowning in butter & garlic, & the rub on anything “blackened” is very strong. Drinks could be classed up a bit. Location is top!

    After the bad experience with the Mahi Mahi sandwich ordered a burger. Tasteless and the fries were like the ones I got years ago wjen I went to Burger King with my kids many years ago. Terrible..

    If you wanna try an American style burger here would be a nice option. By the way, frozen margarita looks so fancy but it was not as hard as what I expected.

    Almost always good. Watch the ocean and chill while having great food and drink. Go early on Sunday if you plan on brunch as it ends at 11AM

    Nice location and atmosphere. Ended up here after 2 hour storm hit the beach. Hummus appetizer was ok, drink prices were decent. Good place to socialize

    Looks like just another beach strip restaurant, but fresh, quality food! Outdoor seating is best because the music inside is overwhelming and doesn't work if you want to have a conversation.

    Much better during the day. Music is so loud and it's very dark inside. Food is nothing special. Location is the best.

    Aruba Beach Cafe is quintessential South Florida livin'. It hasn't really changed much since it opened in 1983. Both tourists & locals frequent this classically Floridian upbeat eatery.

    Order some of the signature Bimini bread for the table. (The full loaf is huge; a half order is plenty for parties of four or fewer.) The conch fritters are good for sharing, too. Read more

    The atmosphere is upbeat, with live music daily and dancing after 9 or 10 p.m. Looking for a bargain? Come for happy hour (4-7 p.m.) on Friday and enjoy a complimentary pig roast. Read more
