Opinions of Aruba Beach Cafe in Lauderdale-by-the-sea?

Has anyone been to the Aruba Beach Cafe in Lauderdale-by-the-sea? Might it work for a very casual and beachy rehearsal dinner for about 50 people? Also, anyone know if they have daily steel drum music there?

  1. It's got the feel you seem to be looking for--casual, fun, resort-y, right by the beach, and it has valet parking. The food is nothing extraordinary, but fine. I think it would work. As for how/if they'll handle a party of 50 or what the music is like, how about giving them a call?

    1. It's definitely a beachy fun place and has quite a view.

      1. decent food at a decent price in an excellent location is always a winning for 50pp, call far in advance, just as you should anywhere you want to throw a party of that size. Get it all spelled out in writing if need be so there are no surprises.
