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.
If you're in the area, do yourself a
favor & check out the wonderful steaks at Tropical Acres. Tom & Sharon at the bar are always friendly & are great service providers. The stuffed shrimp are tasty & I really enjoy the stuffed mushrooms. The New Happy Hour Menu is a nice addition. My favorite is the Special Cut Filet mignon. Enjoy!
Tropical Acres has been one of my
favorite restaurants since I moved to Fort Lauderdale. My first visit there was for an event. The place was packed, and the food and service were excellent. I've since gone back at least 3 or 4 times a year to satisfy my need for its old Fort Lauderdale look and style. Food and drinks are always great. Service is exceptional. I've never been there when an owner has not been on site. Always friendly. Great steaks. Great everything they serve. And the prices are reasonable.
My first visit to Tropical Acres was a
Valentine's Day Celebration many years ago. I've celebrated many special events dining at TA and always had a consistently excellent experience.
But don't wait for a special occasion to visit Tropical Acres. Their Happy Hour is a great value and you get some VIP treatment from both Tom & Sharon behind the bar. It's a great venue to catch up with the girls or a nice break from the week with your honey. So enjoy some great company and some $5 apps for no reason at all!
