Not the best. Service is slow and I thought the food would be great but not so much. They bring fajitas to the table and you can't breath from the smoke from the platter. Even surrounding tables get hit!

Nothing good to say! Drinks weak, food flavorless and waitress unfriendly and SLOW! She never asked if we wanted another drink and never brought the hot sauce we requested. The only good thing was the jalapeños!

Service was okay but the food and drink were terrible. Ordered the pork burrito, it was tough and had a strange flavor, sauce straight out of a can. For me a bad entree can be tolerated if margaritas and chips and salsa are good. This...More

Went to Iguana Cantina last year and returned this year. Food was very good. Portions are large. We were able to see the water and light show from where we sat. Best seats are on outside rail. Service was good, and overall a great night....More

We went here for dinner yesterday, March 21st. When we arrived we were quickly seated with menu’s, however it took our waiter, Miguel, more than 10 minutes to arrive at our table so I asked Gabriel if we could order. Once we ordered our drinks,...More

I think you should make another choice in general, as we found the service very slow and the ambiance lacking. I don't recall the menu having any gluten free options.
