I am very sorry about your experience with us. Good staff is very difficult to find anywhere and we are always on the search for good dedicated staff. We work diligently at training but sometimes that takes a bit of time and some people just can't get it. Trust me we give them a chance but quite a few don't make it. I am sorry that you were overlooked I know it was not intentional, it was new staff just trying to figure themselves out. We are continuing and will continue to search for staff whom can live up to our expectations and that of our guests. I do hope you give us another try.

We tried a Belizean beer and a frozen drink. We sat at the edge of the upper bar area, which offers good views of the port area. They have a lower bar area also, which is where I had to go to get the wifi passcode. They would not even give me the code, only enter it into my ipod themselves. It was the most secretive wifi code I have ever received. I was glad to get it to be able to do a FB checking from Belize.

Thanks for taking the time to write your comments. I wish the WiFi was so secretive, we just find it easier to put it in ourselves than having to take the time to explain what it is. The programer made it a long one, and I am truly not a computer genius to change it, so we just do it this way.
hope you enjoyed yourself and do come back for another visit.

We spent a couple hours at the lizard while waiting for an excursion. Excellent rum punch made with fresh squeezed juice! Local beer was yummy too! We didn't spend a evening in the port but this seemed like it would be a fun nightlife spot.

My mom and I visited Belize on our Caribbean cruise early in February. This place was highly recommended by some people on our ship. The food was very good...although the table service was slow. It seemed because we ordered water with our meals instead of alcohol, the waiter hardly ever came back to our table. Then when we wanted to pay, we had to hunt him down.
The general appearance of this restaurant is good. Clean and organized. You were allowed to sign your name and where you were from anywhere on the premises. Wall, table, chair, whatever...

Thanks so much for your comments. We appreciate all the input we can get. I am sorry your service was slow, and trust me it had nothing to do with what you were ordering but all to do with the staff. We are constantly trying to train, or change to keep up with the demand of our customers. Hopefully next time you come back it will be different. I am glad that you enjoyed the nachos, And thanks for signing the walls, all donations are going to the Belize Cancer Society.
Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

The Wet Lizard is a must if you go to Belize City! The staff is wonderful, the atmosphere is amazing and the food is great! We got to get our picture taking shots, and we got to sign the restaurant somewhere! This truly was a great place to go there!

Hi Corbett:
Thanks so much for coming by and having a party with us. Hope those shot pictures made it on our facebook page.
When you come back you'll have to try some new shot concoctions we are working on. See you soon and again, thanks for taking time to let us know that you had a good time with us.
