I don't drink often but I was with family and I was sitting at the bar so I indulged in a mojito. One mojito led to another...and another...and one last mojito...I wasn't sure I'd ever be back. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Let's just say that bartender knew how to make a good mojito! With regards to... More

Be sure and go to their happy hour (great Mojito's). My husband got the fried chicken (per our waiter's recommendation) and loved it. Close to the casino, you can walk there after!

The setting and decor of this beautiful restaurant and bar harkens back to the nightclub era of Lucy and Desi. You can expect great food and friendly service as well as being surrounded by locals and tourists alike.

The food, the service and the management are truly the best in the desert. Then the club next door was perfect after dinner. More of the same type of service.

The restaurant is fresh and inviting. They present a modern menu full of flavorful dishes. Our server did her best to accommodate the dietary restrictions of one of my friends. Our overall experience was great.

I don't need to tell anyone in Palm Springs that this is the place to be for happy hour... they already know it! The bartenders are fast, efficient and friendly...the three important R's of bartender service! And let's throw in fresh and fabulous! Martini specials... And best lemon drop martini on the West Coast!

We had a party of 8 and sat outside by the misters. The food was really good and so were the drinks. What's better is that it was affordable and a energetic ambiance.

Tropical has good, reliable food. The atmosphere is fun. The patio is the place to be when it is nice out. Locals do Sunday brunch there. Good cocktails. The burger is amazing and very rich. The onion rings are good, but tend to be greasy. The fried chicken is good. The pizzas are surprisingly good. Any of their egg Benedict... More

It is just a fun place to visit with lots of activities going on in a very enjoyable atmosphere. Our wait person this time was Laura and she was a delight. The next time we go we will ask for...
