Great party bar

After shore excursion went here for a beer before heading back to ship. Sits right down the boardwalk from the tender pier. Easy to walk to.

We visited this restaurant on a day trip to Belize City on a cruise. We stopped here for drinks and a small bite to eat. They had great drink specials and advertised free wifi. The waitress was friendly, but had far too many tables to wait on. We had nachos to eat and they were pretty good. The free wifi... More

So glad you stopped on by and enjoyed yourself. Yes we do offer wifi, and yes, Belize still struggles with it being constant and efficient. Thats why you get to have a drink, some nachos, and wait for the download. LOL Hope to see you back here again real soon and please say hello Laura More

If you are an old stick in the mud and do not like cold beer and island music, then this not your place. After a morning of excellent snorkeling, we came back to the Belize City port and when I notice 2 for $5, I had to stop by. While my wife shopped in the chocolate shop across the way,... More

Went on an excursion from our cruise to Belize and found this restaurant on the shopping pier. It's on the 2nd story so there's a staircase to climb. Service was a little slow, but they were busy with all our fellow cruisers ( I think 2 cruise ships were docked). The food was good, I'd go there again just for... More

Hi Joan: Thanks for stopping by, yes there are steps to climb but once you get there, the breeze and the view are worth the climb. We also have a bar on the dock, with no steps, give us a try there next time. Hope to see you back soon. Laura More

The food here is authentic Central American food. Spicy and flavorful. They also have American food on the menu. My main issue was the touristy prices.

I love the atmosphere of this place and the Belikin Stout (though generally not a fan of darker beers) and the interestingly different chips & salsa (I am a self-proclaimed expert on chips & salsa, so trust me). When in Belize City, I make it a point to spend some time at the Wet Lizard!

We didn't have much time since we had to get back to our ship, but my husband wanted to try the Conch. We got our beers fairly quickly but that was about it. It was busy when we got there but it started to empty out since people had to get back to the ship. We stayed behind a bit,... More
