Great place to kick back and enjoy the view. Not crowded since it was chilly, I think this is a sit on the patio, summer kind of place. Food was good, service great, very attentive and eager to please.

Went in for Sunday lunch. We were one of 2 tables. Should have been a clue. I guess this is just a drinking crowd restaurant. The food couldn't have been any worse. It simply wasn't worth the effort to eat it and I was hungry. I had a chicken burrito . The chicken was hard. Yes, hard. Just this side of jerky. My husband said his food tasted "tainted". He couldn't describe it any other way. To boot it was cold outside and we has to wear our coats inside. The staff did too. With no water in the lake, and being cold, they should just close up if they don't care any more than this.

My husband and I were there for lunch on Friday & it reminded us that we don't go there often enough. Even though it was a rainy day we enjoyed seeing the lake from that perspective. We love the casual lake vibe and the salsa is perfection, however, their Spanish rice and chicken tacos are the best! I've had their queso, which was delicious, but I love everyone's queso so I'm not really qualify to critique. Drinks are strong. The service is not fabulous but it wasn't bad. Servers are always friendly but dressed a little too casual for us. Did i mention the shredded chicken tacos!.

The patio seating is especially nice on a spring or fall day. Food is good but not exceptional. I would like to see coupons from Iguana Grill. I would be more likely to try it again.

The food is average, the service isn't bad, and they've got a nice outdoor area. However, one manager that I encountered does not seem to understand that the word "service" is found in the term "service industry"
