Dining at Tropical Acres is a step back in time. The menu really hasn't changed over the years. The seafood platters or the prime rib is consistently good, however, not over the top great. The restaurant runs like a top. Well trained servers get your orders in and delivered to the table efficiently. Great for large parties and for folks... More

Although I have lived in the Fort Lauderdale area for 43 years and I've heard of Tropical Acres, passing the restaurant many times, this was the first time I tried it. My husband and I were extremely disappointed in the food. I ordered the filet mignon being one of the restaurant's specialties. The beef was dry and tasteless. After two... More

We were in Ft. Lauderdale for a cruise, and the hotel recommended Tropical Acers and since they (hotel) had a shuttle, it sounded perfect. The atmosphere is great, upscale but not stuffy or pretentious. Just very good, professional wait staff, the way a restaurant should be. The piano was a wonderful touch. The appetizer was delicious, but the steak I... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel for one night, and happened across Tropical Acres, as it was on a list of places at the hotel's front desk. Honestly our primary consideration is it was close. We got there, and it became obvious it was a very popular place. We were seated after a short wait, and soon learned why... More
