My husband and I had lunch here the day we arrived before checking in to our room. We heard the restaurant had a new chef and we were curious as to any changes to the menu and the food in general. Food was good. We've eaten here several times over the years but menu seldom changed; the new chef appears... More

Have enjoyed 4 beautiful meals at the Blue Iguana Grill. Mike Dil and his staff have the best island recipes on the Island this year ! Great surroundings and peaceful views of the North Sound. The Holiday Inn is lucky to have such a fine restaurant as its featured food establishment. We will definitely look forward to future visits to... More

Thank you for your kind words Cheryl P. We are lucky to have Mike Dill & his staff on property. The food is always fresh and he often updates the menu so next time you come you'll have to try his newest creation. Happy Holidays, Trina Hall More

The prices are a little high by my standards but not Cayman's standards but the servings are enormous. We stayed at the adjoining hotel so had several meals there and quickly learned that one entrée was enough to feed two. That way we could also order dessert and have a perfect meal. Quiet, great view of the beach and pool,... More

We were meeting some friends for lunch that live here on Cayman, they suggested The Blue Iguana Grill at Holiday Inn. I did not even know Cayman still had a Holiday Inn. I believe this facility used to be a time share resort. We had to Google the location but it was not too hard to find. It is on... More

Thank you for your review KayGWV. You're right! Mike Dill was previously at the Sunshine Grill and now heads up the Blue Iguana Grill. The menu is similar with fresh ingredients. We still have the large portions, fantastic tacos and burgers and amazing cocktails. We were previously known as the Grand Caymanian but now also operate as a Holiday Inn... More

The staff are well informed on the menu. The food is very good. I would recommend a manager to be on duty for dinner. We never saw one, in the evening.

This restaurant is off the beaten path. But well worth the trip. The food is excellent. The service wonderful. And reasonably priced.

I stayed at Holiday Inn, and this restaurant is located in the property and this place is a disappointment. It is not only ridiculously expensive but also low on quality, the number of times I had chicken here it was undercooked. There is not much option in breakfast I had potatoes, egg, and fruits/cereal if I am lucky every day... More

In the Holiday Inn near Seven Mile Beach. Good variety of items on the menu for meals or for beach/pool snacks. Memorable for its large portions. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Ate dinner there several times a couple of weeks ago. Food was awesome - tasty, hot, promptly served. Loved the coconut rice, too! I would recommend everything on the menu. Just start at the top and work your way down with each successive mean you eat there. Atmosphere could use some work though ... otherwise, a great place!

We were staying at the Holiday Inn Resort and generally don't bother with the usual run of the mill restaurants located onsite at hotels. However.....after reading reviews of the Blue Iguana we decided to try it out and are glad that we did. We had fish tacos and hamburgers(made of fresh, not frozen patties), both of which were great.
