Looking for fantastic food and a very nice steak restaurant? Tropical Acres is your place.

We were in the Ft. Lauderdale area in February. We took my 86 year old Auntie to this restaurant on her recommendation. Very nice place. A little loud in the restaurant but the food was excellent.

My husband and I came here for dinner while vacationing in Hollywood Beach. We only had to wait about half hour, which was fine, we enjoyed their cozy bar and what seemed to be the owner serving us. He ordered the shrimp scampi and I got the marsala pasta dish which was amazing-it had slices of filet mignon and shrimp... More

We always visit Tropical Acres on our yearly visit to the area. It's on our list of must go to restaurants. We ate there tonight and as always was a wonderful experience from the servers to the food. We always go before 5:30 for the early bird so you get a complete meal for a very reasonable price.

My Dad and I dined here last night and had a wonderful evening. The filets were prepared perfectly to our order. Our servers, Billie Sue and Donald, were extremely attentive.

I had dinner at Tropical Acres Restaurant on a Monday night. The food was very good and cooked perfectly. Tommy the bartender was great and was very entertaining. They had a 50% off bottles of wine that night which I didn't take advantage of but I thought it was a great promotion. The atmosphere was good and it was a... More

Located at 2500 Griffin Road in Fort Lauderdale, this 65 year old gem, owned by the Studiale family is as comfortable as any restaurant I have ever visited. Arriving at 8:30 PM on a Sunday night and sans reservations, we were greeted amicably and seated promptly. There was no akward wait for a server even though the restaurant was relatively... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant before taking a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale in January. It was a short walk from our hotel, so we chose this restaurant by location. As we approached, the place reminded me of a 1960's happening place to go. Once inside we waited briefly at the bar and enjoyed meeting 2 other couples... More
