It is a very dingy bar with a dirty feel. The staff seems to be untrained and the service was very slow. This place has potential, but not under the current management.

Three of us stopped today for a late lunch, first time here. First and last. One had the chicken tacos, one the Mediterranean wrap and one the burger special. Place was very quiet but good was slow to arrive. The burger was tasteless and lukewarm and the fries cold. The tacos were barely warm. The wrap missing the toasted red... More

Sat night out. Found they had a live band. No cover charge. Nice place to have a few drinks and listen to music

First off let me begin by stating that I have been going to the Green Iguana for many many years and have always loved their food/service. Just returned from taking our friends out for a nice Sunday lunch and had one of the worst experiences that all of us have had at any restaurant. The server came to the table... More

I remember the Iguana as one of the best spots in Ybor. Times have changed apparently. TV channels cannot be changed, wings are tiny and dry, bathroom out of toilet paper at noon... Disappointing.

We got stuck trying to catch a flight and we hung out here for several hours.. The service is great.. very friendly and prompt… Even when they are busy they still have good service.. The food was good especially for being a airport restaurant… We had breakfast the next morning as well..

Really great atmosphere. They had a guy singing & playing guitar while we had a beer ( or three!) and ate conch fritters and some nachos. Great location in the Ybor area, easy to walk to from our hotel. I would visit there again.

This place is under new management and they have a new head chef. From what I've heard the new management and chef are working to change the concept completely. They have changed the menu already and it has had a hug impact with in the community. I tried their chicken sliders and I must say they were amazing. Very juicy... More

We went for drinks and appetizers. The bartender was very knowledgeable and super friendly. They also didn't bother us when we hung out for a little while after paying our bill. Very nice of them!

Went there in April celebrating my birthday. Only had drinks but the staff was very accommodating. Taking our picture since we also were their 17 years ago on our first date. Found out it was my birthday and the bartender bought us a drink. Something that rarely seems to happen anymore but goes a long way with customer satisfaction. We... More
