We stopped here as we were traveling along the coast checking out different beaches. This was a refreshing stop -- there were plenty of sports on the various TVs. We sat outside and enjoyed our food. We had the grueben (a combination of a reuben with grouper) and shrimp and vegetable skewers. Both meals were great and filling! There was... More

Nothing like showing up at 730 on a Tuesday to be rushed out...came out to enjoy some drinks and dinner with friends but it turned into a game of how quick the bartenders could rid of us so they could close early....ordered an appetizer and dinner in a rush because kitchen was "closing" at 8...got entire meal at same time...was...

on vacation with relatives who raved about this place. it was fine...atmosphere would have better if sitting at the outside bar..local band was really good and the food was fine....service sucked..the fastest service we got was when asking for the bill.

We were here last, 2015 and loved the place! This year we went back And found out they hired a consultant and discontinued their band music. Bad consultant!!! But they will be having live music again on Wednesday and Fridays again soon. Too bad we won't be here then.

We used to love Sandy Parrot. Now it Sucks much of the time. Tonight we were trying to decide between Sandy Parrot, Rusty's, Sneaky's, Castaways and Rythm House. We decided on Sandy Parrot, The band was 41 South. They played a half dozen songs and no one was on the dance floor except a mom and her little daughter. We... More

I live right around the corner. The new manager is British has no taste in beer or wine. They have all the standard selection Budweiser, Coors, Corona etc. no local (Lee County) brews. Wine selection they are now serving Chloe Chardonnay in place of Kendall Jackson and J Lohr. The food is still good but the menu is limited.

Four of us stopped in for lunch. Sandy Parrot has a $10 lunch menu which consists of about 6 or 7 food choices and includes a draft beer or soft drink. The shrimp sliders were considered the best. Quesadilla and burger were good. Fish and chips was a little greasy. Waitress was super.

Last year new owners took over and very quickly changed the happy hours from until six to just now over at five oclock. Too soon if you planned to stay for the entertainment and have dinner. The entertainment is not the usual as we did check March's listing and we found more modern bands compared to the shows that featured... More

I visited at the beginning of February 2016 at my sister's urging, she couldn't say enough about this great Tiki bar. Upon arrival I realized that there was going to be live music, which as a person with hearing difficulties makes this an evening from hell and zero conversation with my fellow diners. Seemed like a nice place at the... More
