Had our Christmas party for our Corvette club. 70 people had a great time . The steaks were great and cooked to order. The staff did a great job. The room was set up perfectly. I plan on going back to this restaurant for dinner.

Each time we are in the area we always have dinner at Tropical Acres. This time it was a little disappointing. The bar staff was still just as friendly as past experiences. We then we seated in the dining room, the server just was not as pleasant as our past dining at this restaurant. My husband ordered the Prime Rib... More

I'm disappointed to hear of your recent experience and appreciate you mentioning that you have had many enjoyable meals in the past. This situation could have been so easily corrected if the server followed protocol and checked back within 2 minutes of serving your entrees. Would you mind email me some information about the day you joined us? In addition... More

Surf and turf for me. Perfection. My partner had a filet and it was delivered cool, with less flavor. Pumpkin pie and pistachio gellato were excellent.

While I'm happy our service and lobster special measured up, Jackee, I'm disappointed in the rest of your experience. We always want to impress our guests in every aspect, so I apologize the onion board and salad didn't meet your expectations and that all of your menu items were not hot enough.

Tropical Acres has become our special "last night" anytime we are in Fort Lauderdale. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is "Old Florida" and the service is outstanding. There is a reason why this place has been in business for 67 years-they know how to treat their guests right! The 4th generation owner, MIchael, also came to chat with us-he... More

My wife and I went on our first cruise ever and decided to arrive one day early for the sake of convenience. There are many hotels near the Port Everglades Cruise Port, but finding restaurants in this area can be a challenge.

Ernee-Tim, I apologize if we dropped the ball with the filet and Grouper Francaise. We serve our steaks on a sizzling platter but it should not be so hot that it cooks your steak two temperatures higher than you ordered. We appreciate that you mentioned giving us another chance.
