“Fun, Fun, Fun!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We loved dancing on the tables, sunset was amazing and the food was good! We were there with a large group (25) and it was the highlight of our family reunion!

“The good; the bad; and the ugly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Trolley Dodger heads east--hits TO in H'wood on Sat. Aug. 3. First: the good. Good location, right on the intracoastal. easy to get to from all South Florida locations. More good: the food. Surprisingly good. From make your own hummus and wonderful warm rolls and pita, to grape leaves, eggplant app, calamari, chicken wings (the absolute best), first rate steak and chicken kabobs, lamb chops, rice pilaf, roasted potatoes--we tried them all--and all were yummy. Now the bad: the place is RIDICULOUSLY LOUD AND CRAZY. Don't get me wrong--I like to have fun. But the dancing on tables, deafening electronica music, throwing of napkins, shtick gets old FAST. You simply can't enjoy your meal, talk to friends, etc. There has to be a happy-mid-ground here. Lastly--the bad: the place is really not clean. Floors, tables, bar area, bathrooms. YUK.

“Unfortunate disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

On a Sunday evening incredibly poor service. It is unfortunate when a restaurant that you have gone to for years declines noticeably. Though it was hot and raining (hard) the staff had to be asked to turn on the AC and ceiling fans. Our waitress was somewhere else, certainly not waiting on us, in fact she never came to take our main course order. The food was good, but there was decidedly less of it than on previous times at the restaurant. The manager attempted to salvage a bad situation but the rude wait staff kept walking between him and us as we were talking. Sadly, there are just way to many good restaurants in the area, so I can't recommend anyone to go to this once charming place that has now descended to being just another "tourist trap," with mediocre food, small portions, poor service and blaze ambiance.

“fabulos entertaining atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

So much fun for our family. All ages. Come as you are. Right on Intracoastal. Influencer on tables staff makes festive atmosphere. Big parties go with banquet menu to get great tasting experience

“Homophobic and RUDE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Extremely unwelcoming and an embarrassing experience for my partner, our daughter, and myself. The waiter actually yelled at us on our way out after I told him we were leaving because we felt uncomfortable and unwelcome. We took our lesbian/gay money elsewhere, so should you!!!!
