Went there for appetizers got the 2 for 1 between 2pm-5pm most days. The seating was very comfortable and staff was quick and attentive. Got some nice Chicken Strips and Yam fries were tasty with some spicy chipotle. Plus you can get free popcorn come for a drink and watch the hockey game.

Lakeside views and no walkway to cross. Good outdoor space in summer. Great burgers and drinks. Look for stage presentations that bring name musicians to this intimate bistro setting. A little loud when a game is on, though.

Food is good, prices are reasonable - service not so much. :( Won't stop us from coming back, but we know what we're in for when we step through the door.

Out on the town with a good friend from Vancouver. We had a look around and most the places we visited were just too beat up. So we decided to go to the Barking Parrot as we had heard about this place. It was a lot of fun. I was surprised by how big this place is. Walking in, you... More

All year round this local bar and eatery present well known talent to entertain seven days a week. Always great reviews in local paper and reasonably priced.

They have the view, and that's it. Don't waist a penny there. The drinks are like anywhere else but serve in a dirty glass. The menu is little and not creative at all. The taste of the food is terrible and not consistent....and usually serve slightly warm. The dishes and the glass are dirty. The patio is dirty, must ask... More

On a recent hot summer afternoon, we enjoyed a leisurely few hours under strategically placed protective sun umbrellas on the deck of the Barking Parrot, casually chatting with friends as we gazed out over tranquil Okanagan Lake. Busy bathers scurried to and fro, clearly enjoying the beach and occasionally engaging the services of the laconic power boat operators who towed... More

We ate there on Sunday, August 24th, 2014. We have been to this restaurant many times over the years and have noticed that the service has consistently been a little "off". The service was much better this time, but maybe we just picked a good day. Food and drinks were good. Enjoyed a relaxing bite and drink.

This place has an awesome patio, with a great view at sunset. A wonderful place to hang out. However, service is often slow - sometimes due to being busy, sometimes its just the people working. The food is good and reasonably priced. If your looking for a quieter place to go though, avoid this place on weekends, as it becomes... More
