Nice family friendly restaurant with average food. Good music playing and crowded bar area upon walking in. Beach views.

Being right on the water, Abruba's is the perfect place to have cocktails, lunch, dinner or to meet friends. The food is great and it is a fun place hang out and listen to the music on the beach.

My husband took me to this restaurant on my birthday, the place was beautiful, the musicians were great, the view was good too, it is by the beach, BUT the service was poor, i thought i will give the waiter a break i mean they were busy, then we got the food, the seafood was overcooked and chewy, later that evening, my husband and i got cramps, and i know it is from this place because we did not have anything else to eat other than coffee that morning at home.
i feel bad leaving a bad review but people should know what to expect, and i hope you guys try a little more to improve your food and also train the servers on how to give a better service.
i will return to this place i wont give up on it, because i am sure things will change if the managers really cares about it.

It would be an understatement to say this place is "hopping" most everyday of the week... What is the big draw? The food, drink, entertainment, location? I would definitely say the beachfront location has a lot to do with it.

We met with a small group of friends - 8 of us in total - and waited at the bar while they arranged a table. Maybe a twenty minute wait. As you scan the restaurant, you'll notice a diverse collection of patrons, from the retirees sitting at the bar having a drink (with their 7yo Grandson), to the 20-somethings having a birthday party right in the middle of the restaurant. Add to this the extremely loud man on guitar covering 38 Special and Jimmy Buffet, all in the same hour.

There is a lot going on in this restaurant so there is no way you could tired of people watching!

The wait staff is friendly and the food is average, but if you want to find a place where you can be yourself, this is it.

My recommendation - ask for a table on the ocean-side deck or something towards the back of the dining room. This will make sure you don't have to yell at your friends while trying to enjoy your meal.
