As we were sitting down for dinner on the patio, Leeza Gibson's and Suzanne Somers came by with their dinner party and stopped to say hello.

We eat here almost every time we are in town. The food is always predictably delicious with interesting standard menu items and a nice list of specials. The mid-century vibe inside and the outdoor patio are two different experiences; it just depends on what you are in the mood for. Finally, I have always found the service to be very... More

Tropicale offers great menu but my all time favorite is the Tuna Nori Roll which is an Asian flare roll sliced with an outer very light Tempura style coating with a delicious center of tuna . The new lobster wedge salad is also outstanding. Prices are reasonable for quality. Nori roll has been cut back from what was originally served... More
