Our hotel recommended Parrot Eyes so we gave it a try. It looks like maybe a good place for water sports though we did not do that. Stopped in for late afternoon drinks and appetizers. Should have left after meeting the rude server, Gemini. The drinks were okay. Do not order the bacon wrapped shrimp! The bacon was undercooked to... More

We decided to try this place b/c it was close to our beach house. The service was fine with a couple exceptions, including one major exception. They didn't have any 32oz soveneir cups for the parrot paralyzer (a drink I ordered), so I asked if I'd receive two 16oz glasses instead. I was told that the bar tender made a... More

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
