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

A group of friends and I had a great lunch at the Barking Parrot last week. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. Beautiful location right on the water. We all enjoyed some very colourful cocktails. We were there mid afternoon so not crowded.

This was in the hotel, and because I didn't want to venture back out into the rain, served the meal purpose well. Beer is cold, and they seem to have lot's, but appetizers when ordered seem to be lacking in substance....I mean it's pub food so what do you want, you won't go wrong here to grab a beer and... More
