“Best Steak for the Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Great steaks at a very reasonable price. I typically dine at the bar area without having to wait for a table. Bartenders Sharon and Tommy are a great team and can sell me anything on the menu if I wasn't able to get full. Best kept secret in SoFla. I'll definitely be back.

“Great Dining, and the Lounge is a 'Do not miss'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Besides the great food and excellent staff the Lounge/Bar also offers a wonderful atmosphere and Tommy is about the best bar tender you could ever find. We missed him last week. We visit and dine as often as we can. We are thankful for the uniqueness of Tropical Acres and they make you feel like part of their family.

“Tropical Acres...Does it again!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

OK, 100 + and counting. That is the number of times I could give TA the thumbs way up. Every time we go it gets better. The service from the owners and staff never ceases to impress. We went with a group of 17 people a couple of weeks ago and the Kudos keep on coming for recommending Tropical Acres. We had a blast. The food was incredible. Sorry to the other patrons that had to endure our "sing alongs" to the piano player. Next time we'll request songs we actually know the words to. See you soon and enjoy.

“Not worth the $$$”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Maybe I was expecting too much from the reviews, but we found this establishment to be laughable and a HUGE waste of money. It was close to our hotel and after reading some of the reviews we thought we found a jewel in the rough. Right off the bat it wasn't good. We waited 10 mins for a waitress to come to our table after being sat, despite several serving other tables right next to us. It was almost like we were invisible. Finally someone noticed and had someone come greet us and gave us a complimentary appetizer. The first waitress took our drink order but that was it as shortly after another woman appeared as our waitress. I am a steak lover so I was excited to see their steak menu and claims to have a good steak. I ordered a steak and it tasted like something I would have gotten at Ryan's Steakhouse or the old Quincey's. I didn't even finish my steak, I couldn't take the horrible taste and it was tough to chew. To be completely honest, none of the food was of good quality. The service was below average and overall our experience here was poor. In my opinion it was a total waste of money.

“Good steakhouse & lounge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This place is a blast from the past with a piano lounge atmosphere, but updated. The steaks and other food were excellent. Servers were pros. Value was comparable. Far better than chain restaurants. The owner is there and makes sure customers are pleased. Highly recommend
