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 fish and chips!

We had friends pick us up by boat and stopped here for a drink and lunch. All six of us were seated immediately and the service was very good! We plan to return at our next trip to FMB.

My husband and I have gone here several times for lunch and/or just for a drink. This visit, however, was with two other couples for dinner and the Frank Torino show. What an entertainer he is! The show was fantastic, the service was great and the food was delicious. We all had a great evening out. Can't wait to do... More

We went to Parrot Key last Sunday night for dinner. We had hoped to attend the Gatlin performance but sadly they were not there. The schedule for the performances did not match the on-line information which was quite disappointing as we had heard from our friends that their show is lots of fun. We stayed for dinner and were seated... More

I Love the atmosphere here but the food items are pricey and on my last visit the beer I had was warm. The waitress brought me a stainless steel salad bar container full of ice. I put my beer in it and drank out of it till I spilled cold water all over me. Customers deserve cold drinks when one... More

We werent sure what we were going to find because of the section the restaurant is in, but once we parked and walked in, we knew it would be awesome. The staff was knowledgable and very nice, the food was excellent, the view from our table was phenomenal. We watched the sun go down over the marina and best of... More

Our party of 11 (7 kids!) was not sure how this was going to go since the hostess was less than welcoming even though they were practically empty on an early Sunday afternoon. Our waitress was very patient with the kids and helpful ready with extra plates and napkins. The food was very good also. Being our first day in... More

We ate here in April 2015 and had a really good experience with service, food, drinks, and entertainment. We went on a Saturday night at 7 and were seated by the water immediately. We were given a choice between being seated near the entertainment or water and we chose the water. I had the flank steak which was on the... More
