Awesome patio

Went there for a drink and a bite with friends. We enjoyed the view. Sangria ( white one) was good but light on fruits. We shared a spinach dip, it was delicious. Our waitress was very young im sure they have a lot of other very good waitresses !

The trashy Saturday nights here probably always end in fights. It's definitely a party spot for kids with a desire to binge drink, dance like idiots and stumble home. Inside a once classy place, it seems a shame to waste a patio like this on drunk kids. The bar staff over serve without question. My wife was grab-assed, and there's... More

Great restaurant on the water. Food was awesome and the music was great until the late night crowd came in and it turned into a dance club. Still a great time with friends.

The service was fine. This is a sports bar for people wanting to watch the games. They have large projectors and loads of room. The food is average and not too highly priced. Had the deep fried pickles. Quite good. Nachos were decent. Right next door to the Casino.

Six of us went to have lunch at the Barking Parrot on July 4th, 2015. It was 40 degrees and we asked if we could have two tables put together in the shade. The waitress told us to go ahead and do it ourselves. She offered no help. We sat down and the waitress asked if we wanted to order... More

This place always seems to have very poor service. You sit down and it takes FOREVER for anyone to come and serve you. When you do finally get served it takes another FOREVER for them to come back again! So frustrating...it's been this way for YEARS! Not sure why. Perhaps a change in management and/or staff may be in order??... More

This is the "cool" place to be, to some that's positive and others not so much. Food is good, view is great, lots of cool drink options, service ok. This place becomes very busy in the summertime, so just relax if things take a while.

So it took 15 minutes to get water to the table of 8. Then another 15 minutes to get first round of drinks. We all ordered our appetizers, now its been 45 minutes and still no food. They just introduced a new menu. Out of which they dont carry 4 or 5 items. You would think they will tell us... More
