Our timeshare is downtown and sometimes we are just looking for a place just to "hang out" at...it's a very unpretentious place and has a relaxing feel...great place to go to in shorts, flip flops and a t-shirt...the menu has a Caribbean flair (order the Jambalaya or the ribs) or if want you get a great burger they serve that...

Plan a day downtown for shopping and stop here for lunch! Nice, shady patio you can overlook the street and see the ocean. They have great drinks that are loaded with booze. Food is your typical lunchy kind of stuff, burgers, fish tacos..stick with that and you'll be fine!

Do recommend the Pink Iguana drink! Our waiter was nice, but service wasn't super speedy. We were there to take our time so we enjoyed the views of the city and the harbor. Chips and salsa were good (no refills). Fajitas were good but nothing to write home about.

About 30 of us went to Iguana Joe's for dinner about 7:40 pm. There were few other diners and few wait staff. The service was very slow and when the food finally arrived it was overlooked. I ordered coconut shrimp and my wife had the Caribbean nachos. We shared the very tough shrimp and somewhat burned nachos. We have visited... More

We visited Iguana Joe's for lunch after getting off our cruise ship. It was very crowed but service was good. Food was fine and it is a fun place to visit.
