This dump is closed – And good riddance. Only experience I had here was a bad one. I came in one afternoon for a burger and a beer. The drink special was buy one, get one beer from the "Bud family", as my disinterested server called it. What she brought out was two room temperature beers, served together in the thinnest, flimsiest plastic cups I've ever seen. Very lazy, considering I was close to the only person in the room (wonder why).
I drank my warm beer and left, not wanting to see how bad the food would be. The service was rude and sarcastic, the dining room hot w/ no a/c. The only question was when this place would close, not if. Adios, Green Iguana.
Terrible Service – I rarely give bad reviews, but this was RIDICULOUS.
One Sunday afternoon, my girlfriend decided to try out this Green Iguana on Bay Pines Blvd. We were seated outside as most of the tables inside the restaurant were empty. We waited over 10 minutes but no one ever came over to greet us or get our drink order. Some patrons at an adjacent table quipped that we would "be waiting a while". So I went to find the host but couldn't find him (apparently he was trying to host and be a server at the same time). After waiting more minutes, our host FINALLY appears and tells us we can "just sit anywhere", so we reluctantly chose an outside booth. Well, not only had this table not been wiped down, but it was situated right next to someone's farting DOG (yes, this restaurant allows dogs!). So again we moved, but this time we were directed to an area inside the restaurant near the front where we could talk. Would you believe the two tables in that empty section were also filthy???
WE. LEFT. RUNNING.
After a short drive down the road to John's Pass, my girlfriend and I found a very friendly seafood restaurant where we were treated like we actually mattered.
Excelent!!!! – I have been and do go on a regular basis. The service is excelent. The staff is friendly. The food is great. I love the beach atmosphere and the price is right.
Good atmosphere – If you are looking for a place to hang with friends this si an OK place. The crowd ranges from young to old. Every background. Nice place for a drink!
If you enjoy being humiliated.... – If you prefer the worlds most HORRIBLE bartenders and staggering drunks then this is your place! This review only pertains to this particular Green Iguana. I order a vodka tonic, I received a vodka and redbull? I returned my drink and as the bartender was pouring my original order, he told me I was as fault. That example barely scratches the surface of our bad experiences at Seminole Green Iguana. Insanely horrible service, bar brawls and sub-par food complete this establishment. STAY AWAY!
