Meh

Good view of the lake, big screens for watching NHL playoffs and cold beer. If you want to eat, go to the Hooded Merganser. I had wings which tasted like rubber, and the ranch dip was more of a Jello than a dip. The spinach dip was actually pretty good, but you can get the same one at the casinos... read more

Stopped here for lunch and was one of the few in the restaurant as it just opened. Ordered the spicy thai noodle bowl. It was really great and fresh. This is a recommend to order. Service was a bit slow even though there were so few people in the place but the lunch definitely made up for it. I would... More

I had a bunch of friends come from kamloops and I am totally embarrassed by this place. The service was horrible the bouncers were on a power trip and kicked out 2 of my friends even when they were quiet. I seen the oversized asian bounce with the bald head purposely spill a drink on a girl while we were... More

It's always a treat to go to the Barking Parrot in Penticton for lunch. They have good food, good service and the osprey nest outside has been taken over by a goose for the 2nd year and there are goslings in the nest.

We have been to this restaurant before during summer months and it didn't seem to be too bad but this last visit was really terrible. We waited at least a half hour for simple meals (4 of us)and the food was really bad. Frozen fries thrown on a plate. I ordered the spicy chicken burger and got a preciously frozen... More

Always a good view of the lake from sitting inside or outside. We have never had a bad meal there and the staff is very friendly.

One of the nicest locations and views in Penticton. Payed parking to go in and spend money? The worst service I've ever experienced. Waitresses standing around, texting, chatting very poor management. Bad food.

This place is old, dingy and has bad service. We went to happy hour on Sat & then back Sat night. Our daytime service was awful, the waitress just wanted to leave. We had to ask about the specials & she had to keep asking the other waitress for the answers. Food was out of a box and deep fried.... More

A friend and I go there often....the view is very inviting in all seasons...the staff friendly and service is very fast...we can sit and talk and never feel rushed....the only dish I have had there that wasn't so great was their calamari but all other dishes are very tasty. Prices are very reasonable.
