First thing I will say is that the service was great. Very professional. The atmosphere was great and the place was packed even though it was a weekday. The food however was a let down.

We come to Tropical at least 3 times a month. Everything is great not a bad meal, the patio is awesome. Shaun W. is the best waiter there, Chris is the best bartender at Tropical. High recommend.

The service is consistently good and the food very tasty. This time we sat on the outdoor back patio and with heat lamps it was very comfortable. The menu changes and this time I ordered a huge pork chop with enough for leftovers!

Awesome food, great service, reasonable prices, great atmosphere. It was a little dark -- needed my phone flashlight to read the menu, but not a big deal. We love this restaurant!
