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.

Nice atmosphere at Salty Sam's Marina

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!

I had a very good experience with Parrot Key with some of my family members. The location on the water makes for a great ambiance for SWFL. The food I ordered was very good as well. The service was good but we ran into a problem with their use of iPads for submitting orders. Because they submit as they take... More

Always a great meal at Parrot Key. Their crab cakes are the best. Had the teriyaki chicken sandwich today and it is great.

The food and beverages are average. Service is excellent, as is the view of the water. It is a touristy place with touristy food. Nice average place to sit and enjoy the scenery while eating.

Went to Parrot Key for lunch. Had great service and delicious food. Open air seating. Had a bit of cloud cover, so very comfortable. The entrees were generous portions so did not partake of appetizers or desserts. Would go back again and would recommend to friends visiting the area. Also used Entertainment coupon (BOGO) and was processed with no problems.... More

Let's face it, a tourist attraction such as Parrot Key is not a place you go to propose and expect 5-star dining. You suspend disbelief and go with the open heart of one of our many visitors, and as such you will have a really fun time and leave happy. It's all about managing expectations people.
