I enjoyed the scenic view of this bar. You could see the ocean and the pool area. I did not like the birds that was flying around eating off the guest plates.

The food is rather bland and a limited menu, tried it twice probably won't return as there are many other places to choose from, their food prices are high for the quality they provide.

We visited Tropics on a weekday afternoon. Apparently, they just started opening for lunch. Conveniently located within a shopping center, the restaurant has a relaxing open-air atmosphere.

This used to be Drysdale's, and it was a slightly more than a passable sports bar, where quantity trumped quality, but the many TV screens allowed the avid sports fan to watch March Madness. Then it was unoccupied, mysteriously, for a couple of years, and...More
