We've been going to Tropical Acres for the past 20 years at least twice a month. After moving out of the area we missed it so much so we decided to drive up to Fort Lauderdale for a nice steak dinner reminiscent of our favorite times there. To our disappointment and dismay, the place is not the same. It seems... More

This was a great restaurant. Wait staff was attentive. Seafood was well prepared. Great bread to go with the meals. I think that takes care of the mandatory 100 characters, as admittedly this was otherwise a restaurant that does what they do very well.

We went for a great steak and we got one. It appeared to be an "ole boys and girls club" hangout. (older people that eat there often). The staff was nice, prompt and courteous. We were looking for a steak as good as Dicky Brennans in New Orleans. Tropical Acres has a sign inside on the wall that says "... More

We were here on a Saturday evening and it was extremely busy. We were told the wait time would be 30 minutes but after one hour we were finally seated. They were very kind and apologized but it was still longer than we expected. We were quickly service but then waited 30 minutes for our soup and salad. After that... More

We were in the mood for steaks and lamb and tried out Tropical Acres for the first time. It was very busy on a Friday night at 8pm so we headed to the bar. Tommy at the bar greeted us with a kind smile and with eager to provide the best service he could. The food was awesome but the... More

Excellent food, service and presentation. The trifecta achieved. Best measure of steak is when you don't need anything else but the steak as it is so flavorful. A delight.

I rate a restaurant using five criteria. Appearance of customers and staff. Environment. Quality of food. Quality of staff. Value received. I mention this because this excellent restaurant would get a rating of five if it adhered to a reasonable dress code for customers. It does not. Probably 3/4 of customers were dressed appropriately for this type of restaurant -... More

Thanks for taking the time to share this review. We are very happy to hear that your steaks were "outstanding" and that the service and environment were up to par. The idea of "proper attire" has become rather muddled in South Florida and it is a tough subject to approach with guests. Regardless, we are grateful that you enjoyed your... More

Tropical Acres is the longest running family owned and operated steakhouse in Broward County. There steaks are always prepared and priced right. This is a upper casual steakhouse with live piano in a lively dining room, circa 1978. The drinks are strong, the steaks are juicy and the service is always with a smile. A really good local steakhouse with... More

We were staying in Dania Beach for holidays and decided to go to the Tropical Acres for dinner. We ordered steaks and both our steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly. Everything was very good. The only thing we can complain about was the side lobster tail my husband also ordered. It was not very flavourful and seemed like it was... More
