We discovered that sadly Tropics is currently (12 July) closed for business, and likely to remain so in the short term. There is a court case underway. Steady downhill trend over recent months. Great shame. It has been a valuable resource for the gay community...More

Don't bother going to Tropics for Sunday Brunch after the first 30 minutes of opening because you won't find much food left to eat! We arrived at 12:30 pm and most of the service platters were empty. No one bothered to refill them although quite...More

Tropics is a restaurant located in Wilton Manors. The Brunch on Sunday is good value for the money. Their service staff is friendly and are willing to please. The brunch is not high end but you get a very good meal for a reasonable price....More

Tropics is a restaurant that caters to older gay men, which is admirable. Unfortunately, the food is not. The menu is typical of local restaurants, uninteresting and forgettable, which is not a tragedy. What is, is that the meager portions of flavorless food, poorly cooked....More
