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.

I went for food and drinks with an old friend and the food we had was actually really really good, same went with our drinks! But the service we had was terrible and it wasn't even busy! Wasn't impressed with it but I'll definitely go back because the view is worth it and the food and drinks were great!

We ate here one night due to it's location on the water and the server was super annoyed she had to help us. Food service was slow and basic. Server had no knowledge of the specials or even what day it was! I won't be eating here again. Why bother, when there are far better places like Salty's!?

I left my credit card there a few weeks ago and one of your staff FRAUDED my card for a $380 cash advance. The FRAUD dept and Penticton RCMP should be in touch in the next while. Thanks thieves!!! ;)

This bar/restaurant is in the premiere Penticton location. Located within the Lakeside Resort/Casino right on the beach. There is a lovely outdoor patio, but it was pouring rain while we were there, so we were sitting inside with the view on one side and large screens and T.V.'s scattered around so the guys could watch the final game in the...

It's a place to gather and have a drink to look at the view or watch the game. It's a fantastic patio in the summer. It gets very busy. But this place is dirty. Their glass in witch they serve you beer are old, scratches and marked. Regular turn over of the staff and the bar tenders seems to have... More
