Parrot Key Caribbean Grill is a favorite of locals and visitors alike with its unique open-air setting on the waterfront edge of a working marina and a thriving wildlife aquatic preserve. Voted Best Waterfront Dining since 2004 by the News-Press Reader's Poll, Parrot Key is still the area's best-kept secret. The festive decor and casual ambiance evokes a feeling of various exotic tropical locales. Colorful and tasty frozen drinks are served alongside Caribbean inspired cuisine diverse enough to please all palates including local seafood and land based favorites. Open for lunch or dinner with entertainment, Parrot Key is located at Salty Sam's Marina and accessible by land or water.

Excellent food for a by the water place!

When we visited in early January the place wasn't crowded at all and we were seated next to the boardwalk with a view overlooking the water and the boats. Great view overall.

While flying into Ft Myers, a passenger (local) told us about Parrot Key. We met up with some friends that recently moved to Naples and had lunch there. We were very happy we did. The setting on the bay was great and the atmosphere was excellent. Food was very good and had that Carribean fair. We met a couple from... More

Salty Sam's Marina has several Great Loopers (by boat). This is a good restaurant to gather and get to know each other. We had drinks and appetizers around 5pm and had a good experience.

This is exactly what you want from a Marina eatery - right on the water by the boats, outdoor seating. Good drinks good food, good service. All good!

I'm not sure how this restaurant/bar rated 25th. It was mediocre at best. Colorful yes, service okay, food below par for the price. Save your money folks. There are better places to dine.

We weren't there at a busy time but this was still very nice! I really enjoyed our meal. I got coconut... More

Had a good meal here with friends on a Sunday afternoon. Friendly wait staff with a good selection on the menu. I had the Cuban Sandwich, which was excellent. We were enjoying good conversation until the football playoff was turned on, it was so loud in the place that we couldn't hear ourselves talk and promptly left! Too bad, I... More

Thank you for visiting and sharing your experience. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit up until the football game. We are a very popular spot to watch the football games (especially the packers), and because of that have the sound on for games. On a normal night we are a laid back and relaxed restaurant....

We stopped at Parrot Key on a whim when our first choice of restaurant was packed. Monday night, off season and about 7:00 at night and we only had a 10 minute wait. Sat at the bar to wait for our table and enjoyed a (very strong) Mai Tai. The bartender was fast and friendly. Our food was good (I... More

We loved the location at the marina! The waiter was pleasant but food was average. My fiancee's fries were under cooked but his cubano sandwich was better than average.
