Steakhouse in Dania Beach

Located in Dania Beach, adjacent to Ft Lauderdale, this historic eating establishment c.1950 is easy to find due to its old bright neon sign. The family owned business has been around since 1949 & they know how to grill a steak! Excellent!

Tropical Acres was recommended to us by the Marriott Courtyard and did not disappoint. Traveling with two seventeen year old boys, we walked to the restaurant without reservations on a Friday evening the day before Valentines Day. Took approximately 30 minutes to get seated, waitress was courteous and knowledgeable though spread thin. We all had steak dinners, found quality of... More

They were very busy and we had to wait for a time. The food was good and the service was a little slow due I think to the time of day.This was the second time we have been there so I would recommend it

On our last night in Florida, my girlfriend and I stumbled upon this gem while looking on the GPS for restaurants near our hotel. The décor was delightful and the service was wonderful.

Recommended by our Hotel, didn't know what to expect. We decided to try it and were very happy with our choice as the food was great. It reminds me of those classic restaurants that have operated for 50 years in some towns and are still going strong. It seems that they have discovered the formula for success. Good Food, Good...
