Dive with great food!

The Cay is best known for it's wings but has many other dishes. Ordered the Mardi Gra pasta. You can order 1/2 or full orders. It was ver tasty and you can select your level of spice. Food is served on paper plates with plastic silverware. Don't expect high class. The prices are reasonable.

If you want the best wings of your life (shark sauce level 7) you need to go to the Cay! I've never heard a single person that did not like the Shark Sauce here. Also, Captain BBQ is amazing. Combine your wings with a Pot-o-Gold (cheese curds) or a Phat guy Burger or a Po' Boy, you will be as... More

I live in Grand Forks and my husband and I go there almost once a week for the shark wings level 10. They are amazing! I enjoy the original wings too, level 10, but I always go back to the shark wings. We share the wings and a basket of cajun fries and drink a little beer. Fills us up.... More

We went to the Parrot's Cay as we had heard that their wings and Shark sauce were great. The seating was very limited and uncomfortable with large tables resembling picnic benches. We sat with people that we didn't know as there was nothing else available and it looked to be a long wait for an open table. Service was slow,... More

Parrot's Cay is a hidden gem in my hometown of Grand Forks, ND. They're best known for the hot wings, but the entire menu is awesome-lavosh, jambalaya, Cajun pasta, and my favorite the blackened chicken dinner!

Great service and excellent food. Make sure you head out early or else you will be standing for awhile. Bar really some for the number of people it attacks.

Stopped in on a Friday night, shared a big round table with some nice folks as the place was packed. Our group ordered wings, friend pickles, and hushpuppies. I have listed them in the order of quality: wings were amazing, pickles pretty good, hushpuppies not so great. If you are wondering what hushpuppies are, you are not alone. They are... More

This is one of the places I take people who are visiting or new to Grand Forks. It looks a little like a dive from the outside, but it has a great tap and bottled beer selection (they also serve wine and malt beverages in a bottle, but no hard liquor) and great food. Be sure to try something with... More

Best Wings Here! The wing special on Wednesday and Thursdays is great. Love the cajun fries and hush puppies. Great dive bar to just drink and have some wings with friends.
