“Old school experience at its best.”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

My husband and I just paid another visit to this local spot. We have to stop for dinner if we are anywhere near Miami. They are celebrating sixty years in business. Love the wait staff, they always take care of us. Steaks are tender and flavorful, always cooked correctly. I had pork chops that we're the best I've had. Love the hash brown potatos. Nice fresh salad, house made breads are tasty. If your near the landmark, take the time to stop for dinner. You won't regret it. The key lime pie and apple blossom are are great finish to your meal !

“Good Steak House”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is a very busy, popular restaurant in Fort Lauderdale - best to make reservations. Good, friendly service but waitstaff is somewhat harried. We were four for dinner, tab of $220.00 including one cocktail, one bottle of red wine plus two additional glasses, tax and tip of 18%. Meals include house or Caesar salad and choice of potato. My husband and I shared the crab cake appetizer - very good. Two of us had the prime rib - very good, one guest had a small filet mignon with mushroom sauce - very good. My husband had the special cut filet mignon (eye of the t-bone) - good size but he found the taste bland. Finished dinner off with regular coffee for one and decaf expresso for another. Good choice for those in the mood for a steak or prime rib.

“Just so so......”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

First I'll start out by saying that this place is old, feels old, looks old and smells old. With a 7:15pm reservation we were seated on time, in old wood chairs that I think were original with the building. They wobbled, so we were moved to another location. The food was hot, and tasty, overall I'd have to say use your money at places like Houston's or Outback at least they are in better shape.

“BEST PRIME RIB EVER TASTED”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I recently arranged a birthday party for approximately 40 people at Tropical Acres. The food and service were both exceptional. Some said it was the best prime rib they have ever tasted in a restaurant. I highly recommend this place with a homey atmosphere and easy to get to location.

“Old School Steak House”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Came in for a light bite to eat and a cocktail. Our bartender, Tommy recommended the sliders as an appetizer. Three good size sliders packed with filet minion beef. A real treat! The hand made fried mozzarella was good also. Met some nice people on vacation like us. Mixed in with the locals. Tommy totally took care of us with some great tips on Ft Lauderdale and made us feel like family. Will come again on of visit trip.
