Only plus is the view

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.... read 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.

going out with friends for a weekly night out we often pick the Barking Parrot, the service and food are both very good. The only complaint is sometimes they are so full we can't get a table.

I was dancing with my friends when two security guards came up and told me I needed to leave. I asked why as I was drunk but hadn't done anything wrong and they provided me with no reason. They wouldn't let me grab my jacket and they kicked me out in the middle of winter wearing only a t-shirt. I'm... More

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.
