  1. I haven't been there in a few months, but Old Florida is a place that changes very little with the passage of time. They have been there for many, many years and provide friendly service with reasonable prices. With the exception of the raw bar and the conch chowder, the food is average at best.

    1. Time for Old Florida Seafood to freshen up. Place is old and tired. With all the new construction in the area.You would think they could clean the place up a little. Far as the food ? Have had three bad meals in a row.We always loved Old Florida sorry!!!!

      1. re: Happyone

        Happyone, I believe the reason they haven't done anything as far as clean-up or remodeling is concerned is because the entire shopping center has been sold. They. along with Lotus, the antique shops, and the theater will be gone.

      2. cucuzza, Sorry to hear that.Has Lotus found a new place??What are some of your Favorites in and around Fort Lauderdale.We spend about a week a month there.Takes time to find great places. Thanks

        1. I don't know when the center will be razed and if Lotus has found another location yet.
          I will however, try to get some new information on my next visit there.

          As you can see, no secrets! All good solid places that wouldn't that wouldn't evoke much disagreement from the locals.

          These were off the top of my head so I'm sure I've forgotten to mention a few more.

          PLEASE -- no replies asking why I left so-and-so off the list. These happen to my favorites!
