Hands down, if you want fresh fried shrimp do not go any further. We ate at Iguanas for the first time just two months ago. Well we returned to St. Simons Island and there was no other option for lunch. Once again, the service was outstanding and the food was outstanding. That is all we wanted and that is what we received. My wife and I ordered a half of portion of fried shrimp since we knew we would have a huge dinner later. Glad we did. Shrimp is fresh; hushpuppies well made and the coleslaw was fresh and tasty. Still the best place around for great seafood!

Love this place! Great food, drinks and atmosphere! We love to sit outside...wait staff is friendly and helpful. Usually dine here several evenings during our one week annual stay!

We like eating here and sitting at the bar. We had not been in a year or so and the same bartenders were working. That says something about management and the service you are going to receive. I ordered a shrimp burger and it was just awesome. Probably the best "burger" type of food I had ever eaten. We usually get two dozen raw oysters but didn't this time, just not hungry enough. The ice cream machine is free if you eat dinner but it broke right before we finished eating, not a big deal but my wife had wanted a little something. They have 16 or so beers on tap so that's a nice feature if you're into beer, some craft beer and some of the usual. The girls all wear short khaki shorts, which if your a guy is kind of nice. It's a cool place to go and can be very busy, might have to wait awhile to get a table.

Delicious...laid back restaurant with bar. We split the house salad which was really good and big enough to share and we also split the surf and turf which came with 14 ounce rib eye and 1 lb of crab legs. Really loved both of them. $37 and house salad was $6 or $7 bucks. They also have an ice cream machine which is free after dinner. Would go back.

Very nice atmosphere - Amy is the best server!
Food was very good, and service was great.
Nice decorations - outside dining for those who wanted the fresh air - it was HOT so we ate indoors.
