I was afraid to order anything more than the basic BLT and a black coffee. Had I been alone I would have left. I was with a few people who were having a nice time, so I just kept silent. The handle of the cup of coffee was very sticky, so I took out an alcohol pad which I carry to clean my glasses and wiped the cup handle down. While I was at it, I also ran the pad over the part of the cup which would touch my lips. The place looked sloppy when I walked in, but it wasn't until I was seated that the stench (probably from the carpet) began to overwhelm. I didn't even read the menu because I was afraid to eat anything there. The servers were very nice and the service was good. When everyone finished and we asked for the check, someone in our party decided to take something to go, for a friend who was at their house. Well, that was the last of my polite patience. I couldn't sit in the stench any longer to await a "to go" order, so I went to an outside table and waited for my party to get the "to go" order. I came home and immediately went to the laundry room and put everything I had worn to the restaurant into the washing machine. I was sure the smell had invaded my clothing. I did not want to sit and relax in the clothing I had been wearing at the restaurant. I wanted to "fumigate" everything. I did not get sick from the food. Everyone but one person ordered simply. The one who did not, ordered eggs Florentine which came in a large plate with so much yellow sauce over it that one could not see anything else, but what resembled grits on the side. One of our party asked if it was good. The answer came back that it was very bland. They say they are always crowded for breakfast and lunch. People might like it. The prices are right, maybe that's it. I can't vouch for the food because one can't do much to lettuce and tomato and the lettuce was green and the tomato was red. The bacon was as ordered, well done. Would I go back? No. Would I recommend it to anyone? I really don't think any of my friends would like it.

This restaurant is an excellent spot to stop for a simple but good breakfast. They have many excellent choices for breakfast including some interesting combinations for their 3 eggs omelets.My only complaint would be that although their service is quick it isn't always friendly.

This is a place to go to meet friends. The atmosphere is very relaxed, kind of like a diner or cafe. You can bring your dog with you and sit outside or bring a group of friends and sit inside. The food is great and the service is excellent. It was one of the first places I went when I first came to Florida and it is a place that I visit every week on Sunday for a fabulous breakfast.

I was very excited to try this restaurant because I had heard so many great things. Afterall it has been a fixture in Ft. Lauderdale for generation. However when we arrived I couldn't have been more disappointed. Very dumpy looking, inside and out. But since I only care about the quality of the food I ignored the decor. Oh how I wished I followed my instincts. The service was horrible and the food was even worse. Our waiter was a complete moron and just prattled on about his personal problems, our oder was completely screwed up and brought out at different times. And to top it off the manager (probable owner) at the cash register had a serious attitude when I asked for 4 quarters for the parking meter. She was upset I was interupting her phone conversation. I seriously do not know how this place ever gets a good rating. Most likely it is because it has been there forever.

Dirty, bad food, bad service bad hospitality! DON'T WATSE YOUR MONEY!

Although this is on Lauderdale's Las Olas Blvd, don't be expecting yet another uppity specialty place. No, oh no. The Floridian is a down-to-Earth friendly kinda place that makes you feel right at home. It's a bit out of place in it's surroundings, but that just adds to it's charm.

It's a big place that reminds of a diner, only bigger. It's spacious and welcoming and almost has a truck stop feel to it, only with better food. The best part is you can sit outside on the sidewalk and watch the beautiful people of Lauderdale primp and posture to your heart's content if you wish.

You can get everything from a huge open-faced Hot Roast Beef Sandwich to a breakfast complete with Dom Perignon. Friendly, and very reasonably priced.

PROS: Fair pricing, great atmosphere
CONS: No smoking inside
