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. The buffet has many items and you can get eggs benedict and have omelets made... 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. On 2-4-1 nights, some entrees are partially cooked earlier in the day, which leads to... More

I had dinner there twice on this trip. First time a very light dinner, only Caecar salad with chicken, a rather anonymous dressing. The second time I took the special, which that evening was a lobster tail filled with crab meat, Sweet Potato Fries. The fries were very good. The lobster tail was good but the crab meat too salty.... More

Went for Sunday brunch which in my opinion was reasonably priced. Food was okay though, and we had to ask for clean glasses. Two mimosas are included and extras aren't expensive. Service was attentive. Definitely a locals spot attracting an older crowd.

We have enjoyed going to this fun place for older gay men for years. We have seen it change hands a number of times. It used to be great for both food and drink. We ate dinner here twice recently and were very disappointed both times. The entrees are all in the $25.00 range and you don't even get a... More

I was treated to an wonderful dinner at Tropics on a recent Friday evening. It's been many many years since visiting this Wilton Manor treasure. Start with valet parking for $5, if you can get to the bar, enjoy a cocktail, seating also outside. Us "old folks" like to eat early (57yo) hahaha. Super service, wonderful food. You can't go...

Nothing special Sunday Brunch Buffet. Food was edible but not worth the price they charged. Not surprised the place was more than half empty. So many better places on the drive to have a good Brunch. This neighborhood fixture has gone through so many owners and business models over the years. It has become very dated!

Tropics is one of the more civilized and refined gay bar/restaurants. It caters to an elderly gay male clientele and it's wonderful that they have a comfortable place to go..If it weren't for the lovely ambience and reasonable drink prices and I rated out for the food alone it would have gotten 2 stars. The food is unimaginative and bland... More

If you are or like older gay men, this is the best place to go. Live entertainment, friendly staff and a very friendly crowd. Food is served and it's a fun place to go, but if your a fussy eater, just have a drink and a look.
