If you like the old fashioned steakhouse from the 1960s, then this is your joint! What makes it worth the trip? Great food, reasonable, if not cheap prices for the quality served, and attentive service. No, it is not a fancy place, but more of a throwback to an earlier time. Don't expect to find any supermodels here, as the... More

We stopped in after landing in Ft. Lauderdale from Canada the night before. We had heard of the restaurant so decided to stop in for a drink and check it out. We sat in the bar and ordered a couple of drinks and because "Tommy" was the waiter, we stayed and had dinner in the bar. The escrgot were excellent... More

We have dined often at Tropical Acres over the years and have never been disappointed. Great steaks and service. Don't miss this great old Ft. Lauderdale (Dania, to be specific) tradition. It is as good as ever!

Great food, service and location. We had a business lunch with a large group and they accommodated us, and served the best steak and dessert! Loved it, great experience.

I had not been back here since the fire a few years ago. I was so glad they had not done a ton of remodeling since it has a very homey feel to it. I was there in October so it is still off season and was seated right away. They have a Prime Rib special for $19.95 which is... More

I love to eat at the older establishments when we are in Ft. Lauderdale. Tropical Acres certainly fits the bill. Very much an 80's design on he inside but hat is its charm. My sister has the petite filet and she enjoyed it. I ordered the stuffed shrimp. The stuffing had good flavor but the shrimp was dry and over-cooked.... More

I was a bit concerned by the mix of reviews. Those concerns were compounded when I walked in and felt like I'd entered a time warp to the 1950's. I anticipated that after the major fire several years ago the decor would have been more modern. Well. It's all about the food and service and they put my concerns to... More
