Nice place to visit. Service was ok, but not great. Waiting 10 minutes to get the first drink leaves a little to be desired. Good place to sit and chill for an hour or so though.

The Green Iguana is about to become Firehouse bar or some such name. What I can see is that they have added sriracha sauce to everything on menu. Too hot for me. It used to be a favorite of mine when I was in Ybor.

My friend and I ate here several years ago. It reminds me of a TGI Friday or Applebee's. They have TV's showing sports. We came after a big football game and the place was packed. Good American food moderately priced.

The Green Iguana is one of those spots that great for a quick drink or a meal. I also love the night life. It's one of those places that you can talk to people and enjoy the ambiance. The staff is always friendly, and the live music can get loud, but it's always a good time.

We sat at the bar and had nachos and beach bread, with beer and sangria. They have daily specials (like a pitcher of beer and plate of wings for only 10 bucks). I was going to order a glass of sangria, but the pitcher was less than 10 bucks, so I had several glasses... Live music was an acoustic guitar... More

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.
