Slow service. Food taste mediocre. Rum cake is actually vanilla cake. Waste of money and time. Population that frequent this place is senior citizens.

The oldest restaurant in the County, it is a few blocks west of 95 at Griffin Rd. The steaks are very good. I had an end cut prime rib - excellent. Good potatoes and sides. Salad a bit weak. Service is OK. If you want a good steak - this works!

Thanks for taking the time to share this review with us! I'm happy to hear the steak and potatoes hit the spot, but I wish the salad and service would've measured up more. If you recall the name of your server or the night you dined with us, please email the info, as I would like to look into it.... More

I recently tried the Tropical Acres, after hearing good things about the restaurant. I was not disappointed. The services, from manager to waitress, were excellent and they certainly demonstrated that customers came first. I had the broiled scallops and it was delicious. Their desserts were also mouth watering, as I had the key lime and my daughter had the chocolate... More

Went here for dinner on our last night in Fort Lauderdale. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent. The decor is "traditional" (wouldn't work in the U.K.) but that added to its charm. I had Surf and Turf and my partner had T-bone with a lobster tail, absolutely delicious!

We have dined here many times over the last 20 years. When the restaurant caught fire a little while ago, we were glad to see that they reopened without too much of a delay. The food has always been good. However, the last two visits have been very disappointing. On both visits, the seafood dishes were lukewarm when they arrived... More

I'm disappointed to read your review. I'm sorry if the food wasn't spot-on during your visit. That's not how we do things here, and I sincerely apologize. Additionally, our service needs to always be welcoming and efficient, and I'm sorry that wasn't the case. I do hope that you'll be willing to give us another shot to impress you. -Michael,... More

Fabulous food. Fabulous service. Fabulous company (mostly locals, if this tells you anything!!). We ate in the bar. Tommy is a whiz at making you feel like you've come home. And the food- some of the best steak & grouper we've ever eaten!! Cant wait until we have an opportunity to dine there again. Don't let the location deter you.... More

This was our second visit. We were in town the evening before a cruise and decided to return to this restaurant based on our previous experience and proximity to our hotel (walking distance). Early Bird specials were a good value and food was delicious. Hopefully we'll be able to return.
