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.
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
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 far as some of my favorites go, they're pretty much in sync with the places often mentioned on this site.

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!
