Another dog friendly place. They put us away from as many people as they could. I had the burger with blue cheese. It was awesome. My wife had shrimp tacos. Awesome

We limit the restaurants we visit to places which have comfortable, socially-distanced, outdoor seating. That is a shorter list than you might think. On a friend's recommendation, we ventured to Parrot Key Caribbean Grille for dinner tonight. We were very pleased with the food but...the lead story here is the awesome service that we got from Shawn. She had lots of tables, but she was all over it. She was friendly (naturally friendly, not it's-my-job friendly) and attentive to every table. And the service was very fast: we received out meals in less than 15 minutes from when we ordered, maybe 10, in the middle of dinner hour. Keep this in mind if you have some tired kids! And make sure you ask for Shawn. We will definitely make a return visit to Parrot Key and without a doubt, we will be sure to sit at one of Shawn's tables.More

Second time there. Had a “bowl” of clam chowder, which was a bread bowl. It was more like a bread cup...if there was 3/4 of a cup of soup, it was a lot. The soup was good and hot, but I think the bread bowl...is a waste of bread and does nor enhance the soup at all. They should lose the bread bowl and offer a true bowl of soup. Hubby ordered a margarita, said it was very sweet. He also had the coconut shrimp tacos. He liked them, but no taste or desire to eat the burnt chips. They should do something with those too, they just are not that good. Wait staff was pleasant and efficient. I think they could do a better, considering that they are not low oriced, but as we all know, you pay for the lovely setting of the restaurant. Nor sure if we will be going back...More

We were there with about 30 other people, and for a group that size they did a good job making sure that people got food and drinks The atmosphere is good and a lot of the tables are close to open air. My biggest problem...is that our waiter was wearing one of those stupid little plastic shields that offer zero protections for anyone. In case the management hasn’t gotten the memo, Florida set a new record for new cases for Covid yesterday. If I had my own transportation, I would have left.More

My husband and I went to parrot key for the first car show. Pros- Stephanie and Britt were very nice and never went without a drink. The food was fantastic and we enjoyed the live music and happy hour specials. Cons- the beer on top...was a little too warm for my liking and also the bar chairs are starting to break which made it uncomfortable. However, my biggest complaint is that a young man came behind the bar and started yelling at the bartender and putting his hands in her face in front of customers. It made us feel very uncomfortable and it was completely unprofessional and uncalled for in public viewing. I have forgotten his name but one of the other staff said he was the manager of the bar. Being a bar owner you should never talk to your employees that way especially out in front of all paying customers. Britt handled it very well and didn’t react. Only reason for staying after that. We will not be back if we see that young man there. -Amy and Ted from Wisconsin. 🧀More

The atmosphere was like being in the Caribbean! The service was great, even though there were 40 of us on this visit. I had a salad and it was really bland with no real tang to the dressing. Could have had some mango, raspberry, or...something that created a zing! Just a suggestion.More
