The place is located just outside of TSA revision, what gives them a great advantage over their competitors.
It is a modest menu, with modest service and a little bit pricey for what you get.
There are better places at the airport.

My mom and stepdad are regulars, as they live close to the Tampa Veteran's location. When in town visiting from Houston, we joined them for a wonderful meal. It was pouring rain, so we couldn't sit in the patio, where they usually have live music on the weekends. The décor was amazing! There were nice, intimate booths, for those wanting a romantic evening. The restaurant sits on a manmade lake and there was nice seating outside, as well. There were a lot of food choices on the menu, but most of our party ordered the Mahi Key West style with coconut rice and veggies. The fish was flaky, moist and delicious. The rice was sweet, like a dessert. The veggies were fresh and not frozen. Our waitress was very attentive. We could not have asked for a better meal that was enjoyed by everybody!

We live in Tampa and come to Green Iguana to people watch. The service off and on depends on who you get. We try to sit out side as offend as we can. The food is ok. But our favorite thing to do is people watch . Never know who you may see or meet here .

I visited this place for lunch only once back in 2011, the place was clean, nice, great view to a lake...the food well prepared. My best friend has been there before and she said she loved it..I knew why...it is kind of rusticate and island scenario inside, the decoration very , very nice..I recommend this place to others

This bar is in Ybor City, the old part of Tampa that reminds me of old Havana.. cigar shops, outdoor cafes, and specialty stores. I took a street car from the Emassy Suites.
