Look no further. I was quite surprised by the quality of the food at Tropical Acres Steakhouse. The eat was grilled on an outdoor grill on a wood fire. It was the way I expected grilled steaks to be. The wait staff is very courteous and helpful, especially Tom at the bar. I am only in Fort Lauderdale for 3 weeks, but will be returning to this restaurant for sure!

My wife, daughter, sister and I went here the evening before leaving on a cruise. My sister used to come here when she lived in Lauderdale 30 years ago. For nostalgia's sake, we thought we'd see if it changed over the years. It didn't and that's cool!

Think Rat Pack in south florida. Starched, professional waiters, stiff drinks; you could almost hear Deano and Sammy in the background.

I had a wonderful prime rib, my wife had shrimp, daughter a burger and sis a filet mignon. Everything cooked perfectly. Finished off with key lime pie.

Prices were by all standards, cheap! I think with tip, no more than $150 for the four of us.

This place is a classic!

While on vacations stopped at the restaurant for dinner. Ambiance was very nice and relaxing with a piano player. My first martini was good but my second one had to be returned and Chantal was very nice and exchanged it for me (maybe bc I had not specified I wanted the grey goose vodka on the second round). The Ceasar salad and the onion toasts were delicious. However, my husband's steak (a bit pricey) and my broiled Mahi Mahi lacked flavor. The key lime pie for dessert was ok. Overall, it was a good dinner but not great.

Nothing special. Fried shrimp were dry and lacking any flavor, my son said he had better crabcakes, my husband's mahi was so-so. Service is good.
