Nice location, good drinks menu but better places to go in Penticton

The location is very nice and if you can get outside you can get a lovely view of the lake. However unless you are heavily into sports I would probably give this place a miss. It is very dark inside and is most definitely set up for the young adults. We found the service was good but received far... read more

food was good, drinks were decent, the view on the patio is unbeatable. At night this bar gets packed and it's a good time

The setting and location are great. I was surprised that their wines weren't very good. You'd think that a bar in wine country would serve better wine.

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

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 !

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
