This is an old fashioned Florida steak/seafood house. The food was very good, The filets were tender and cooked as ordered. Server was great...friendly, helpful and attentive. It is time for the decor to be updated but you cant beat the service and prices.

The decor of this place has not changed in over 30 yesrs. This place is in serious need of an upgrade decor wise. Food is bland and needs to be elevated up a notch for the price.

I apologize for the confusion with your waiter -- I understand why this oversight could be a little frustrating. Also, bland food is not what we aim for, and I'm sorry that you felt as if your food didn't match the price. Consistent service and quality of food is what we strive for, and it's disappointing to read that we... More

This was our last night and goodbye to Florida dinner on a great girlfriends trip. So glad our hotel recommended this restaurant. We both had the surf and turf and it was divine. The lobster was delicious and coming from Kansas, where steaks are the best, I haven't eaten a better filet for a long time. It was cooked to... More

Great food! Steaks were as stated prepared very nicely, good quality meat! It was not lathered in butter or "seasoning". Slightly long wait with 3 kids but well worth it! Price was reasonable for this good a quality! Definitely recommend Tropical Acres!

Went here on Father's Day while on vacation. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and provided excellent service. The bread was simply amazing. The steaks were fresh and cooked to perfection. This was a great experience and a must go to when I'm the area moving forward.

I have eaten here many times. This establishment never fails to satisfy. I have never eaten with anyone who did not enjoy their meal. Everything is first class from the minute you are greater at the door and seated throughout the evening. Live piano music is also played during dinner. There are always two servers for your table so you... More

Traveling through Ft Lauderdale and wanted to try a different restaurant. Tropical Acres was recommended by the locals. My husband and I both had the prime rib. Excellent. Large portions and attentive staff. The restaurant is also known for its lobster. Will try that next time.
