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.

Our "go to place" in Fort Myers

Their seared tuna appetizer is delicious, we have never been disappointed with any thing we order. Great burgers, steaks, and... read more

Parrot Key Bistro is a MUST VISIT when on Ft Myers Beach. We have been coming to the beach for years, and never miss the chance to dine.

Just returned from a cruise on the pirate ship and decided to have lunch. Lucky me, Mom eats for 50% off her meal, which made it even better. So me and my wife had some delicious fish tacos and crab dip. This is a fantastic place for everyone to visit. You have to try the Pelican Poop ice cream dessert,... More

We got lost trying to find Doc Ford's, so glad we did!! My son had the crab stuffed grouper, AMAZING!! A few people in our party had the ribs, Very Good. Coconut shrimp awesome. However, the Key Lime Pie was THE BEST!! Drinks were also very good! Can't say anything was lacking!
