My family and I went here on vacation. I had the best steak ever. We had Raul and Cheep as servers and they were excellent. Strongly recommend this place.

Everyone has a place they go to for their anniversary, birthday, or holiday.

I defiantly recommend this place to eat! The food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. However our waitress was very rushy and impolite. She was working with a gentleman that was great and we wish we had him for the evening! Besides the bad service the food was great! Prime rib was delicious!

The food was amazing. We had the lobster and surf n turf Marsala. Wish I lived here so I could visit again. There was a piano player which made the dinner very special.

I've been a customer since the seventies. This is a family business that has maintained Sam's high standards throughout their run. There is a piano most nights that plays softly in the background allowing you to have conversation. The service is very friendly and thoughtful. We'll be back again and again.

We take our menu very seriously here at Tropical Acres, so it's disappointing to see that you didn't enjoy your meal with us as much as we all would have hoped. Our building was completely renovated 4 years ago and the carpets are cleaned every other month so I am surprised to hear that you thought the interior was "musky".... More

My friend wanted a steak and she hate's most chain restaurants. So I found this wonderful establishment on TripAdvisor. Really an unusual decor, I mean that in a good way, the propeller fans are fantastic! The parking lot was almost full on a Thursday evening in off season Fort Lauderdale, a very good sign. We were warmly & promptly seated... More
