A group of friends and I had a great lunch at the Barking Parrot last week. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. Beautiful location right on the water. We all enjoyed some very colourful cocktails. We were there mid afternoon so not crowded.

This was in the hotel, and because I didn't want to venture back out into the rain, served the meal purpose well. Beer is cold, and they seem to have lot's, but appetizers when ordered seem to be lacking in substance....I mean it's pub food so what do you want, you won't go wrong here to grab a beer and... More

Had lunch here today. Great tourist crowd with good energy, but the server was not very good. What is it with servers who think they can look grumpy or bored and like they don't want to be there? That attitude will not help them in the tip department. The food is pub food and it's not bad at all. We... More

It looks so attractive to sit almost next to water. The service is slow and not up to standard, considering a resort hotel. The white wine was not cold enough and salad was lack of ingredients.

The Barking Parrot provides all the food and beverage to the beach. It was hot and busy that day but service was fair and food was quite good. Beach staff friendly and attentive

Four of us sat on the patio for dinner here on Friday, June 27th. It was evident our server did not want to be there that night. She was miserable. Our food was pretty good & it did the trick - filled us up so we could go back to the Elvis Festival & enjoy the show. Wouldn't go back... More

We only got take out from the Barking Parrot during our stay. Ordering was quick and easy, and the food was pretty good. But nothing exceptional. We got a bunch of appies for dinner, most of which were done very well. Our nachos weren't done very well, we had toppings as the bottom layer instead of chips.
