My wife and I had lunch here. The restaurant is on a marina by the water. Parrot Key is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike given its casual ambiance and waterfront location. We both had their fish of the day, which was Swordfish. It was very good and was an adequate portion. It came with two sides that... More

Food was good. Had the caprese salad and it was not quite what expected but the blackened shrimp was great!!!! cool to watch the boats and birds from your table. Hard to find unless you keep going back down a road through living area. Very cool!

We hadn't planned on going to Parrot Key this day, but since ended up crossing over the bridge to Ft Myers instead of Times Square... and the 3:30 storm was approaching. We decided to just head here for a drink and wait out the storm. Happy Hour Pina Colada or two was in order, to chase the clouds away. Unfortunately,... More

We stopped by here on a recommendation of a friend, and really wish we would have just opted otherwise. The view is very nice, looking out into the marina, seeing the lovely boats move about into the bay. The food though was blah to say the least. We started with the spinach artichoke dip which was typical for any restaurant... More

Had lunch today at Parrot Key with an out of town guest. We had stopped by here together last year and wanted to go back again. Our waiter was very friendly and personable. He pointed out that there were new menu items available and we decided to try them. As an appetizer we had the shrimp cocktail. Our waiter apologized... More

Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Servers very attentive and friendly. We sat close to the water and could see the catfish swimming by. Get a shirt - you know you deserve one!

Love eating lunch here on the weekends. We ate the crab dip and the blackened fish tacos, amazing food, delicious. Service was good. Only opportunity is that they could really use a detailed cleaning, the place is getting a little worn and old. We will go again, love sitting outside when it's not raining.

The food was a little pricey, but good. The atmosphere was a lot of fun & family friendly. The coconut shrimp was especially delicious!

We had 3 couples ranging from 48-61 years of age in our group. We had a blast laughing and dancing to the performer on a Friday night. He did an Elvis impersonation, the electric slide and many familiar songs. We make it a point to go there every time we go to Fort Myers.
