Sitting on the porch at Parrot Eyes, you can see the jet skies and other boats come and go, watch a sunset and/or listen to the parrot. The food was good and portions were big. Service was good. We went there twice while staying on the island. Looks like it would be a busy place peak season or evenings.

The food is ok at best but the view of the boats and the live parrots were a hit for my grandchildren. The kids milk was sour and wait staff was slow. With all of at said the 2 1/2 year olds wanted to return to see if they could get the parrots to talk again

Some of the best fish tacos I have ever had. The staff was very sweet, but seemed like maybe they were new, or just really ditzy. Not sure.

Look at the nachos in this picture.......take out everything but the dry chicken, stale chips, and cheeze and there you have it. This was a takeout and I did not look at it until I got home. Manager hung up on me....told me he would have to see it to believe it. While I was waiting....a family of about 6-8... More

We went on a family fishing trip in SPI and, upon the advice of our guide, brought our catch to Parrot Eyes. Our waiter, Aaron, was super friendly and patient with our cluelessness about how this all worked. My husband and two teens said the fish was the best they've eaten. We ended up with some fried, some grilled and... More

I went with my family in hopes of trying fresh tasting seafood but instead ended up with average to terrible food. They brought out a hot beer and then the waitress told us that the bartender didn't want to take it off the tab. Eventually she got it fixed, but the way she did it was extremely unprofessional, fix the... More
