Fodor's Review

This casual beachfront eatery is always crowded and always fun. One of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea's most famous restaurants, Aruba Beach serves a wide range of American and Caribbean cuisine, including Caribbean conch chowder and conch fritters. There are also fresh tropical salads, sandwiches, and seafood. The café is famous for its divine fresh-baked Bimini bread with Aruba glaze (think challah with donut glaze). A band performs day and night, so head for the back corner

with excellent views of the beach if you want conversation while you eat and drink. Sunday breakfast buffet starts at 9 am.

Great spot - great food!

Go there! It has an unique atmosphere! It is right on the beach and always crowded. Waiting for 20 minutes is normal, but it's totally worth it! Service is always friendly, food is always fresh and the price is right. What else do you need?!
