Description

New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

As far as bars go, Aruba Beach Cafe is quintessential South Florida livin'. It hasn't really changed much since it opened in 1983. Both tourists and locals frequent this classically Floridian (read: pastel-colored), upbeat eatery located on the water next to the Commercial Boulevard Pier. In addition to a menu of delectable seafood entrees, two bars offer fruity cocktails, serious cocktails, and the company of locals and tourists. The menu includes seafood favorites like conch fritters, a fresh mahi-mahi sandwich, and the blackened seafood trio, plus turf specialties like the Aruba burger and the goat cheese salad. Watching the beach through the vast ceiling-to-floor windows may be the main draw, but people also love the laid-back atmosphere. Flip-flop your way in to hear live music any day of the week. Steel drums provide island versions of your Top 40 favorites. The hardest choice you'll have to make will be between indoor seating with a view or outdoor seating overlooking the beach. After all, Aruba's sandy spot next door to Commercial Boulevard fishing pier makes it the bona fide beach spot in a village of beach spots.

    Good view and nothing gets better than sitting right there on what the locals have come to call "Aruba Beach." Just take Commercial Street right to the ocean's edge, and there it is.
