Every time I visit Florida, about every other year for the past twenty years, I always visit “Tropical Acres” for my favourite dish, PRIME RIB. In looking through other reports on this fine restaurant, I have not seen a single entry about their Prime Rib, which has to be the best in the world. I remember one occasion when I was actually able to cut the meat with my fork.
This being said people I have dined with, have never had a bad meal or complaint. It is truly an amazing family restaurant, and lives continually up to its reputation for fine dining.
They have an excellent web site which covers all else you might need to know about the restaurant
Tropical Acres has been around a long time while most places have come and gone. The food is always excellent and prepared to your liking. The owners and staff cannot be more gracious.
I don't look for a special occasion to dine there, just when I want a great meal and outstanding service. Ginette and Tina are always there to assist with your meal and service. The special cut filet is my favorite steak and is always prepared as ordered. My thanks to the entire staff for maintaining such a fine dining establishment. I have enjoyed the food and service for over 24 years.
This is one of those old style traditional Floridian steak restaurants. Great food and excellent service. I've eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Steaks are top notch quality and grilled to your exact order. I really find it hard to fault anything, maybe the decor is dated but that's just part of the old style that makes it so good. If there is anything you need don't be shy just ask for it. Loads of parking space available, can wait in the bar if you didn't make a booking.
Well worth a visit.
We had a wedding rehearsal party . About 56 friends and family. Everyone was pleasantly surprised how well everything went. The staff was very professional and efficient.
The food was outstanding. We had prime rib, chicken, and fish. Everyone raved about their meal of choice. Salad, dessert and coffee where all incusive. "Great cheese cake".
This restaurant is " awesome". And the price is well within reason.
Our next party will surely be at "The Tropical Acres".
Tropical Acres is a Fort Lauderdale Landmark. They had a fire last year and re-opened. Sometimes things change when this happens. Well, the physical restaurant is new (which is a good thing) but the food, the hospitality and the welcoming feeling is back! Love this place.
We've had dinner twice already since Tropical Acres "re-opened" and the food has always been Excelente! My husband always has the prime rib and I the filet mignon. Service has always been great! I would specially like to mention this past dinner when we were served by Janet and Mary! Kind, Sweet and lovely to deal with! I commend them! Janet even gave me complimentary offer card for our next visit. Totally unexpected!
I have found Tropical Acres an enjoyable place, primarily because as a Corporate traveler, it is comfortable and friendly to eat in the bar. Tom, takes a personal approach, getting to know his customers, ensuring they feel welcome. As a result, I enjoy frequenting the restaurant. The food is prepared to my liking, and the service and the atmosphere is welcoming. Hats off to Tom for ensuring his customers are satisfied!
Stellar service from bartenders Sharon and Tom. Enjoyed good house wine and great appetizers. The fried mozzarella was from fresh (not frozen sticks) and a perfect house-made marinara. The escargot, buttery, and flavorful. We have enjoyed some special occasions there, and always look forward to a visit. Great place for a party, meeting or family dinner.
What's not to love? The personality of Tropical Acres transcends time and trends. This staple of great dining on Griffin Rd. has been around since 1949!! That should say it all. We have been dining at Tropical Acres for around 8 years now. Whenever we want to spend quality time with friends or family we know that Tropical Acres always satisfies.
If you are looking for a high brow place to dine with a fancy menu go elsewhere. If you want great food, great service and old time charm of Florida dining then this is your dining destination. The Steaks are out of this world. I get the Special Cut Filet a 10 oz juicy and tender and cooked just right. Melts in your mouth. Get this with hash browns and a salad. You won’t beat the price either. Don't miss the onion bread. They try to keep these limited but make sure to ask for some if they don’t give you enough in the basket. They are great. Desert will not disappoint, my favorite is the carrot cake. Before you dine take few minutes to grab a big drink in the bar. You will feel like you have gone back to the 50's. Can't wait to go back.
Their food is always fantastic...if you go there, you must get the salad w/gorgonzola dressing....really special treat! Very professional & knowledgeable wait staff...old Florida charm decor
