Never disappoints for brunch!

I always have intentions on a Palm Springs visit to try Tropicale for dinner, but I never make that. But I do tend to always end up having brunch here before I leave. There is a rather large menu selection, and I have never had a bad dish. Service is great, food is great, and the bloody marys... read more

Great Martinis with Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives, Fun Atmosphere and a wait staff to keep you laughing (Tammie). Enjoy both indoor and outdoor dining. Grab a reservation on the weekends. Misters will keep you cool on the patio and plenty of bar seating both indoor and outdoor.

The friendliness of all of the staff at Tropicale is the first thing you notice when you enter this restaurant. They put you in a good, relaxing mood and it only gets better from there. The outdoor bar and restaurant is very lush with plants and reminiscent of a club one would find in Miami. Great drinks and food never... More

Seated outside on the misted patio amongts friends, we were attended to and served excllent cuisine. This rather upscale Palm Springs experience is a little more pricey but worth the experience.

The bar at Tropicale is great! Friendly people in a good mood, with friendly staff, good drinks and comfortable food. If you're alone when you arrive, you'll have met several chatty folks by the time you move on. The bar is crowded, but the bartenders are great about helping you find a spot where someone's about to go. And Happy... More

Met a friend at the outside bar for drinks on President's Day weekend, so the place was packed. Bartenders were on top of their game, food was excellent, but the best part was the people-watching—seemed like half the town was here to eat and drink and enjoy themselves. A great place to start or end the evening.

We ate here for our 38th anniversary and went back for drinks and bar food on another evening. The atmosphere is charming and retro, the patio is romantic and delightful, complete with misters to keep us cool. Our waitress Tammy, on our anniversary, was funny, efficient and really welcoming. Ryan, on our 2nd visit was also helpful and very friendly.... More

You feel like the tropics outside (which I much prefer). Great food, especially the ribs and hanger steak. Also give the Peach Schnapps Sangria a try.
