1940's - Tyler's Restaurant at 1818 NW 36th Street, Miami

1818 N. W. 36 Street, Miami


Tyler's had at least several restaurants in Dade County for decades. I loved Tyler's as a young kid in the mid 1950's, especially their Key Lime bisque that came in a stemmed glass. I've eaten Key Lime pies and bisques at numerous other restaurants since then and only the old Jon's Steak House in Hialeah had something as good as Tyler's.

We used to go to the one at US1 and Red Road, the best french dressing for salads and i would eat all the banana bread i could get.... it was fun and good food... Later I think it became a Spec's Music store.

This is a very interesting site. My grandfather Herman Hartline worked here and also at Mugge's until he retired at the ripe young age of about 65. He was an amazing chef.

My uncle John "Red" Griffis worked for A. M.Tyler at this location and a couple of the others. He always remarked how much he enjoyed working for Mr. Tyler all those years. We also ate their often and were a family of eight. In later years John opened his own restaurant in Miami Springs Circle, and later sold it. Helen Vaughn Cleveland

Tyler's oh yes I remember but not 36th St. I remember Coral Gables when I was a kid my parents used to take I and my brother to eat there and I am 54 now and I remember the hot banana bread and the fried chicken those were the days that I will never forget and has stayed with me all these years why because back when I was a kid food was so different then tasted different so good not like all the junk they put in food now.

My mother, Mildred Netsch used to work there as a waitress in the 50s as did my uncle Herman (Hartline) as a chef on 36th. street. My mother eventually opened her own restaurant in Coral Gables. They are all long gone, but my wife and I often talk about eating at Tyler's as kids. We were both picky eaters and loved the "monkey bowls" for the side dishes. Wish there was a place like Tyler's in Los Angeles (where we live now).
Everything here is either fufu, fusion or fast food.

My dad, Bill Mugge originally managed and then owned the Tyler's Restaurant on 36th Street. I will never forget the people who worked there who were like an extended family for me. I am thrilled that some people still remember my dad's business. Ultimately he closed the restaurant, and he and my mother operated a very successful catering business from that site. It was known as Mugge's Catering.

I sure do miss Tyler's Restaurant. My mom, dad & my sister use to go there for dinner. My favorite was the liver & onions with apple sauce, something that most kids would have hated. LOL.. I really loved the sticky buns with nuts on top that they served before the dinner.
Then after dinner they had an old fashion gum machine, my favorite was cinnamon gum.
Down they street was a pony rink my mom & dad use to take us to. This was in Allapattah. Boy, those were really the good old days.

Yes, there definitely was a Tyler's on US1 and approximately NE 125th Street. The best Banana Bread in the world! We used to have lobster dinner there for somewhere around $5 or $6 a person! I would say that was in the early 1960's.

I was a friend of Helen Tyler and Bebe Daniel who had a great love of fine gourmet meals. Always quality! Helen was an elegant woman. The Tyler restaurants belonged to her Daddy. Wonderful memories.

Wasn't there a Tyler's further north in North Miami? I seem to remember it was near a really neat place called the Old Arms Museum. And if I have it right, Tyler's served banana bread to your table, fresh and sliced instead of the typical rolls. Oh, the food was great too. I really miss places like this especially after eating at another Chilis or Applebys.

I remember having breakfast there probably in the late 40's when my brother Neil ate the buttery part of my toast that I had scraped off.
Jackson High School is across the street one block East.
I was attending that school when I quit on my 16th birthday in 1940.

My dad managed all of them at one time or another (Herb Smith)..A.M.Tyler was also a heck of a fisherman and frequently fished Everglades National Park (Flamingo) with us..
