Nice spot, ready to handle a lively crowd but the meals we ordered (jerk chicken, fish tacos) were just average. Highlight of the meal was the cocktails. Good place for an open air harbor side drink but not sure about the kitchen's offerings. This is a favorite local spot so we'll try it again some time. Right now, my sense... More

You feel like you are in the Caribbean here. Wait staff are in brightly colored shirts, reggae music is playing in the background (they also have live music but we missed it), decorated with the Caribbean theme and lots of parrots hanging from the ceiling. View is great of the marina and food is just fantastic. This is one of... More

This restaurant is located on the inland waterway between Ft. Myers Beach and Ft. Myers. The waterfront view is beautiful and ambiance is great. They have specialty drinks you should not miss. Fish and seafood are fresh and menu has lots of options to choose from. We have eaten there several times over the past 4-5 years and it has... More

My family and I have visited the Parrot Key each time we have come to Ft Myers. It is by far my family's favorite restaurant. Great price for the food, could probably get away with sharing a meal because you get so much. The atmosphere is awesome and the service is great.

touted as "best seafood restaurant" in the area. What a joke! ordered shrimp scampi for $28.00 and received 5 nickel sized shrimp atop mushy, slimy pasta..completely flavorless. No garlic,lemon or white wine in this mess. Our pina coladas contained not a hint of rum. Hot, open-air seating with industrial-strength fans blowing directly at the tables. The seafood nacho appetizer contained... More

Quality poor compared to price. Staff ignore single women, and if there are guys around and you are a couple, forget being waited on.

Our waitress was Lisa. My usually polite, well mannered daughter was sleep deprived and being a tired 9 year old and Lisa was ridiculously patient with her. She also helped me pick a drink that was delicious (mango margarita!!!) and tasted very fresh. The food arrived quickly and was cooked properly. The adults in our party had the grouper and... More
