There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of hearty American fare at The Tropics at Manhattan Harbour in Dayton, Kentucky.
The Tropics satiates seafaring stomachs with simmering servings of hearty American dishes within the picturesque confines of a protected inlet off the Ohio River. After tethering boats or ultra-buoyant aqua socks, expunge the aftertaste of local waters with a charbroiled cheeseburger—a 1/2-pound of ground beef crowned with cheese and anchored securely to a toasted wheat kaiser roll ($8.25). Primo ingredients are featured on the grilled chicken flatbread sandwich, an unleavened goodie boasting plump poultry and cheese, and served with red-pepper aoli and potato chips ($6.99). The Tropics also prepares weekend specials featuring chef Jack's culinary creations.
Fish arrive fresh from the boat to fry on Tropics Restaurant's sizzling grill alongside a wealth of half-pound burgers, creative appetizers, and saucy pies forged from Mio's pizza products. The eatery’s floor-to-ceiling windows grant sweeping views of the Ohio River, replete with the bounty of boats and pet narwhals tethered to Manhattan Harbour’s slips.
