I love the smoothies, but the new sandwiches on the menu should be on the 1.00 menu. Don't get me wrong, they are good...but really for the price you have to buy two to just really get the taste of the first one. I understand portion control, we are fat America but that was down right stingy with a capital... More

The worst value around with a side of poor service. They only give you a 2oz or less portion and charge the king's ransom....pay $7 for 4 oz. $5 for a mediocre smoothie. The staff are essentially zombies.....we felt lower than earthworms here. Will not be back...it's an over priced snack at best....go to any of the other joints...an absent... More

Tropical Smoothie Cafe has food and smoothies that could appeal to anyone. There are both low and high calorie smoothies; some are sweet and others are veggie-oriented. Their food groups are sandwiches and wraps in type, and all are tasty and healthy. There was a large lunch crowd between a2:30 and 1 p.m. on a Thursday. The orders were taken... More

The smoothies are great. They don't taste watered down and there is a large variety. The other food, mostly wraps or flat bread sandwiches, is a nice change. Always been clean with good service.

My friends talk about this place all the time. I don't get it??? I have gone a few times and I've never been impressed. The smoothies are just ok. Service just ok. Last time I ordered a sandwidch or something hot and I had to walk up and remind them. I can make better at home for ALOT CHEAPER.

I have visited this place twice before; the first time was okay. Saturday we went and waited 20+ mins for 3 smoothies!!! Worse than the wait time was the complete lack of customer service. The workers didn't acknowledge customers at all. Most customers myself included waited several minutes before they were greeted. If there was another smoothie place in the... More

I usually go here if I'm in the mood for a smoothie. Don't get me wrong the food is really good too but the prices are a bit much for lunch. Smoothies are always good, though.

This is a chain, but their sandwiches, wraps and salads are so fresh and light. I love the TSC Signature salad and the chicken salad that has cranberry and walnuts in it. The smoothies are good too, but they only come in a "large" 24 oz cup. I find them to be way too big and would like it if... More

Each smoothie is made fresh - so be prepared to wait a few minutes - it's well worth the wait though!

I've been to TSC about ten times in total and the food and drink consistently pleases. Wraps are very flavorful and reasonable portions and they have a very wide selection of smoothies (each of which can either be sweetened with sugar or Splenda). The only downside is that a wrap and a smoothie is going to cost you over $10.... More
