Located in the heart of Fairlakes the adorable bar and restaurant is great to eat a meal at or hang out with friends. The menu, though a bit limited, is extremely good. We love sitiing on the patio as well!

I have only eaten here when they have the limited menu when the bar is hopping but everything I have ever had has been tasty. I mainly come here after hours for a night on the town and the bar staff is great. There is always a good turn out and the crowd is fun and friendly. The patio is great on summer nights. It can get loud, but the place is not the big.

This is a very cute little restaurant with interesting decor in the Fairlakes area. The lunch and dinner experience here is completely different. For lunch, they have an Express menu where everything is served in 15 minutes. This is great because we only have a short lunch break. The lunch pricing is very reasonable ($7 to $10+) and almost cheap for certain entree, sandwich, or burger selections. It feels like a casual restaurant. However, for dinner, the prices jump up significantly ($17 to $26). The food is great, but the relative value of the meal decreases (compared to their lunch service). On the other hand, their servers also give you a feeling that you are in a slightly upper-scale restaurant. Therefore, the value is pretty good if you compare to the upscale restaurants. Also, it is highly advised to make a reservation if you go there for dinner. They will seat you without a reservation, but the wait time can be very long. I personally try to avoid dinner because the dining room is so crowded and I cannot enjoy my meal as much as during the lunch hours. There is a shared parking lot for all the businesses in the strip mall, and I can always find parking even during peak dining hours.

PROS: Lunch menu has good variety, quality, and reasonable pricing.
CONS: Dinner menu is more expensive than an average casual dining restaurant.

Message from Blue Iguana

One doesnâ??t generally expect to find fine, handcrafted food in the middle of a suburban strip mall, but this is exactly the case when it comes to Blue Iguana. Founded in 1995, Blue Iguana quickly became known for its fresh take on traditional American cuisine. Fresh, wild seafood, hand cut prime beef, and unique salads adorn the menu, designed and prepared by Executive Chef Eric Robinson (Landsdowne Resort, Washington Plaza Hotel). Additionally, Blue Iguana offers an extensive wine list to satisfy even the most finicky oenophile, and their award winning desserts make for a perfect finish to any meal. Unique dĂ©cor with art from local photographers and artists line the walls, and seasonal outdoor seating provides dinner under the stars. Completing your dining experience is the extraordinary, professional and courteous service which begins at the front door, and carries through the entire waitstaff. Whether itâ??s a quick and tasty lunch for one, Sunday brunch with the whole family, a banquet for the entire office, or just a delicious dinner for two, Blue Iguana is sure to please!

Blue Iguana hosts many special events throughout the year, including fine wine dinners, charity events, and holiday celebrations. Call for details on this seasonâ??s schedule.
