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.

We love Parrot Key as it is by the bay and has a real Caribbean Vibe. It is tourist destination as it has a nice gift shop and on the dock slips for a nice walk after your meal. We enjoyed the fish and chips and they were great. Their coleslaw is very good and freshly made. I was a... read more

This was a great place to eat on our first night in Ft. Myers Beach! It was recommended by friends and for good reason. The atmosphere is very fun and colorful with (not real) parrots everywhere. We were not able to eat in the section next to the marina because it was full, but still thoroughly enjoyed the experience. While... More

The best place to relax with the best service to boot. The service is excellent and very friendly, no one is rushing you to finish eating so someone else can seat. We have been visiting this restaurant for many, many years and the service and food have always been excellent. The seafood, their specialty is very fresh and we enjoyed... More

Dined here with the family who all have different tastes in food. Avocado mango crab stack is delicious! Burgers and paninis great. Ahi tuna fresh, and grouper dinner is a huge portion of fresh, flaky, moist paradise for your taste buds. Austin was our server and he was witty, knowledgable of the menu and friendly.

One of the places I have gone to for years when going home to Fort Myers. Great outdoor casual atmosphere. Our server did a great job for us and the food is always excellent especially the grouper sandwich and the deserts are killer. Portions are large and decent selection of good beer.

Great seafood dinner! Mango Tango grouper perfectly cooked with mango salsa. Lots of food for the price. Garlic bread sticks a little disappointing. They were the same as I buy in the grocery store frozen & heat up. Rum runner was delicious & view is great. Pelican Poop dessert is to die for!
