My husband and I spent a night in Ft. Lauderdale before a cruise and Tropical Acres was within walking distance from our hotel. We had skipped lunch so decided on an early dinner. We went a little before 5 on a Sunday, just in time for the early bird special. With the special, you get soup, a salad and dessert... More

We definitely love to stick to the old school, but we really hope that you'll give us another chance to nail it the next time you're in the area. Of course, I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed your brochette, but I'm a little disappointed that your husband's prime rib was overcooked -- that's an easy thing to fix. Hope... More

My son and I were in town on a fishing trip and our guide recommend this place to us. I sure am glad he did. It was fantastic. We had the escargot appetizer and shared some French onion soup. Both were great. We both ordered the 10 oz filet med rare and they were perfect. Michael, the maitre'd was personal... More

The host was pleasant and sat us right away. The waitress and waiter pair were very nice and their service was very good. This is a good place for a family with children to eat. I had the cowboy steak and enjoyed it. Plus Monday and Tuesday are half price bottles of wine. Large selection of bottles to choose from.... More

We got new York strip steak. Wasn't at all tender. I used a steak knife and could not get through it. Lots of chewing. The baked sweet potato was done perfect. Rolls were cold and hard. Waitress was excellent.

Hi, Debbie. I'm disappointed to hear that your steak and your rolls weren't up to your expectations. This is definitely not the standard, but I know we'd all love it if you came back and gave our steak another chance. You won't be disappointed! Best, Michael, Manager More

I ate here one evening when I was traveling for work. It's a casual place with a nice atmosphere. I had the Wedge Salad and Broiled Seafood Platter. Both were fantastic! I would definitely stop in again if I'm here on business!

Tropical Acres has been a tradition in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of generations. The original is gone now, but the new restaurant carries on the expectations from the past. The staff is friendly and efficient. They know the menu and will give advice when asked. The steaks are all recommended. The chef sees that all orders are cooked to... More

We called ahead to see what the dress code was. And we found ourselves to be under dressed for the restaurant. The waiter didn't seem to be interested in our needs and I'm assuming our budget or to him our lack of money pointing out price after price. The food was good but the service was not.
