Have been coming to this restaurant since I was five years old - I'm a senior citizen now , so we're talking 60+ years. Very little has changed! This is a classic steak house with great food and service. There are two servers for each table, so you really don't wait for anything. Besides the... read 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.

We had dinner twice in the spring while we were in Fort Lauderdale awaiting our cruise. The restaurant is an old style open concept....reminding me of dining in the 50's and 60's as a small child. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated by Jack...who seems like he is always there and knows a lot of the patrons very... More

Had my reception here on Sunday and everyone was amazed by the service and the food. They were surprised by how spacious the restaurant was and the fact that they had a separate area to hold our event. We had a ball

The wife and I went to dinner, taking my Sister-in-Law for an evening out. As we expected, our food was prepared perfectly, in a timely manner. The managers stop to make sure the guests are happy. Always a pleasant experience. Truly is my favorite restaurant!

I was able to purchase a Living Social deal, however, you are not able to use on any specials or early birds. I do have to say what a wonderful experience. The food was amazing and truly a dining experience. The wait staff was pleasant and more than willing to accomondate anyway they could! Will definitely return!

This an old Florida steak house. It does not have glamorous décor. It is not modern. You do not need to dress up. Our family was in "business casual" and we were fine. What it Tropical Acres is, is reminiscent of what a great restaurant was when I was growing up as a child. If you find charm in nostalgic... More

Oh, wow. Jodi, it's just spectacular to hear you loved the filet mignon so much. And to hear you think it the best piece of meat you've had anywhere ever? That's just incredible. Thank you so much for saying so! Can't wait to have you back again when you're in the area. Yours, Michael, Manager More

Sixty years? Now that's incredible. I'm just floored to hear you're still enjoying our restaurant in the same way you did since you were just five years old. That's a huge tribute to what we do around here. Thank you very much for the review, and here's to the next many more years of lovely dinners at Tropical Acres! Cheers,... More

Old school steak house with some seafood and Italian dishes as well. Food is great, large portion sizes, service is great, but make a reservation or you will be waiting to be seated. Live piano music in the main dining room and the crowd is older the earlier you go. But do go and embrace an old Ft Lauderdale Classic.

Keri, I'm just so happy you've loved our live piano music and view us as such a South Florida classic. Thank you for saying so. :) We hope to see you back for many beautiful Fort Lauderdale nights in the future. Sincerely, Michael, Manager More

I had not been to this restaurant for 20 years. It has not changed. Old time steak house with no atmosphere. A big room and I think could be noisy. You get a lot for your money. For $22 I got the prime rib that includes salad and potatoe and bread. Also on Monday and Tuesday a bottle of wine... More

Wow! To have you back after two decades is such an honor. We like keeping things pretty much the same around here, you're right.

If you happen to be around Griffin Rd. near I-95 there is a restaurant that you can beat in prices especial on a Monday or Tuesday when most of the wines are half off. The prime ribs is good and you can get a side offer of two Bahamian tails for less the 20 dollars. If I want good food... More

Jeffrey, whenever you're traveling Griffin Road, we'd love to have you by again. I'm happy to hear you've loved our lobster special and are a big fan of that half-price wine night. It's a favorite of mine, too. Hope to see you back soon for more delicious steak and lobster! Best, Michael, Manager More
