Their lobster special is only offered during season but it is so worth the wait! Two lovely Maine lobsters beautifully presented...guaranteed delicious! Our other favorite is the sirloin steak for two that we get seared. It is a steak lovers dream! The Riddler wine is a perfect match for this dish. I enjoy the live piano music immensely.

7 of us had dinner here. 6 of us had filets and 1 had fried shrimp. Everyone's steak was done to perfection- each one done just the way it was ordered. The starter salads that come with the meals were exceptional, very fresh and excellent dressings. The fried shrimp was a large portion and very good. I highly recommend this... More

We have patronized Tropical Acres for years. We have NEVER been disappointed. Service is exemplary. Steaks are delicious and always cooked to perfection. Nice menu for non beef eaters too. I would not hesitate to recommend folks who want a great dinner for a reasonable price.

This is the third time we've been here over the past year, or so, and every single time, they're still fantastic!! One thing that I just have to recommend you get here is the Escargot appetizer. It is glorious. The last two times we came here my mother got the Rack of Lamb, and they were great. My father always... More

Our server was nice, but hardly attentive and it was not busy. My food was prepared properly (I had the pork chop with loaded baked potato) and I enjoyed it, but the steak my wife received was med-well when she requested Med-rare. Ok, so a mistake. The server took it back and 25 mins later! he returned with a new... More

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meal but I'd like to apologize for the mix-up with your wife's entree, Prakash -- that must have been a frustrating experience. There is a big difference medium-rare and medium-well and it should not have taken 25 minutes for a proper steak to be served to your wife. I would like more... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend and we are so pleased we listened to her recommendation. Had the surf and turf, which was lobster tail and a filet mignon. Both were outstanding. Also, the Caesar salad was a "real" Caesar salad with homemade dressing. The service was also excellent and this will definitely become a favorite place... More

Visited Monday evening. Sat at the bar, Tommy was our server. Very attentive and was offering advice on the menu items. I had the 8oz fillet mignon and it was the best steak I have ever tasted, had it with the spinach which was also very tasty. I think the place could do with a makeover and I think Tommy... More

After returning home after visiting family, we decided to give tropical acres a try. We needed to kill some time because our flight arrived right around peak rush hour(s). We had filet mignon and New York strip. Both steaks were cooked medium rare as we ordered them and were delicious. Since good cuts of beef aren't cheap, the prices were... More
