The prime rib was absolutely amazing! The house garlic dressing also a must and I recommend the salted caramel gelato for desert. The only thing I didn't care for was the heavy mushroom gravy on my husband's surf & turf. The lobster however was scrumptious.

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Florida and the Fort Lauderdale area in particular. How we never found this little gem is inexplicable. The only reason we stumbled upon it this time is because we were sitting in a traffic jam, I was bored and started Googling steakhouses. This one popped up. My husband, who has been going... More

When was the last time you wanted to eat the skin of your baked potato at a restaurant? The service was a team effort and outstanding. Suggestions were given and opinions were honest. The live piano made you look for any crooner from the past preparing to sing. Relaxing, comfortable an a wonder why we waited so long to appreciate... More

My wife, my aunt & uncle (visiting), and I enjoyed a Saturday evening here. My wife and I hadn't been here in a couple years. We had no reservation and were told we'd have a 35 minute wait. It was just shy of that. We were seated near the piano and enjoyed nice music the entire evening. They had steaks... More

I was there for dinner with several family members. It is the oldest steakhouse in Ft. Lauderdale. Everyone was impressed with their food. My wife had the steak and loved it. I ordered cod fish. It was very moist and tasty. Our waitress was very attentive.

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.
