Its always nice to get your lizard wet. An easy way to wait for tender back to cruise ship. Can always go down onto the bearded clam a short distance away.

We came in on the Navigator of the Seas and had been walking along the dock when I spotted The Wet Lizard! Also noticed a couple from the ship calling to us. We sat with them ,listened to good music had a snack and consumed incredible frozen drinks all afternoon. A very pleasant place to be on a lazy afternoon... More

We had drinks and appetizers at this place since we really had nothing planned at this port. Since is was a blistering hot day, we decided to relax here. I had been here before but not in this spot. I had gone to the upstairs part of the restaurant. The view was nice and they had cold local beers for... More

I am so glad that you enjoyed yourself. Sorry about the spicy food, we try to tone it down a bit, but sometimes the kitchen staff gets a little heavy handed with the hot peppers. The dock bar has been open for over a year now and everyone loves the view and breeze. Thanks for stopping by and hope to... More

This is a great little bar on the pier. Fun, relaxing environment. We had the special which was grilled lobster with beans and rice. Really tasty! Salsa was great! Service was a little slow - but who cares - you are in the Caribbean!

As soon as I saw the Wet Lizard I knew we were going to eat there. It is a quaint place, up stairs, and the view is fabulous, in fact better than that. Remember to get a seat on the wall and listen to the music from down below. So here we are in Belize with the opportunity to try... More

Thanks so much for your detailed review. I have read it and love hearing comments our guests make, Regarding the Nacho Cheese, yes it is the liquid one, but it is kinda like spaghetti sauce, everyone uses it from the jar, but you spice it up and make it unique. We don't use it direct from the can, we add... More

We stopped here because my sister and her family had a liked it. We had cokes and ordered chicken and fish tacos. The chicken tacos were yummy but the fish tacos were really fishy in taste and not good. We did get to use the internet. Enjoyed sitting here.

Sorry to hear you didn't like your fish tacos. We get fresh snapper delivered daily, and I check it personally so it is fresh. Could be some unusual spices we use here, but on your next visit, we will make sure you enjoy everything.... thanks for stopping by and see you again soon. Laura More

Had local beer which was good and cild, and a Mexican - like dish that reminded me of sopes. TO DIE FOR! Would love to know what it was called so I can try to find a recipe to duplicate here at home in Michigan. Great view, great service! Thank you.

After spending the day in Belize we wanted to have a bite to eat and a drink while waiting to go back to the ship. The atmosphere is great sitting out by the water and the food was really good.

Husband and I stopped in at the wet lizard after being recommended this place from a frequent flyer on the ship. Quaint and neat little place. We sat upstairs and loved the view. We were waited on by one girl on less than five minutes of sitting down. Another girl came by another five minutes to make sure we had... More

Well, I am sorry you thought we were just average, and that you compare our nachos to stadium nachos. Some people like stadium nachos actually, but we flavor our meat, the cheese has extra added spices, and creaminess to it, and it is topped with out homemade salsa, which we can't keep enough of because people are always taking it...

Wanted to sit, relax with a cold drink, and use the internet. Was told internet was available, but after ordering the drinks could not log on. Disappointing and did not stay to eat. Wish you could check for wifi first, but I understand that it is for customers only.

Thanks for stopping by, I am sorry about the internet but it is not a Wet Lizard issue, it is a Belize internet server issue. We are at the mercy of the server. Sometimes it is great and full speed and others it is sporadic. I hope that our guests understand we are a full service bar and restaurant first,... More
