Management followed us out to our car to ask us what our problem was. Our only issue is as that he made his s of known and it made that staff uneasy. Bartender was amazing and the servers were great. The manager walked around and...didn’t do anything but make the staff on edge. Then when we went to leave the management followed us to our car and then walked away. Horrible customer service by management. Left a good tip for staff but I would highly recommend they consider a new manager before they lose great staff!More

Delicious food, live music, fantastic atmosphere, waterfront dining...what more do you need? Mahi, sole, and coconut shrimp with raspberry dipping sauce were all very good:) Highly recommend.

A group of us had a reservation and everything was handled very well. I only had a salad with balsamic vinegar, and wished I had ordered two - it was delicious! My husband's crab cakes were good, but not as much Crab as he had...hoped. His french fries were tasty!More

Visited here tonight for the first time with friends. Ample free parking about the restaurant. Conveniently located right next to the water with nice views of boats. Was not very crowded for a Saturday night at 7pm, not sure why?? Lots of TV’s around with...the games on. Our server Luke was very courteous and professional. Food was delivered quickly and was good. I had the Jamaican Jerk full slab of ribs, slightly spicy but not too extreme. Wife had the Mahi which she enjoyed. They had a nice gift shop and live music. Would visited again.More

100% best restaurant to go to for lunch or dinner next to the docks in the bay just off to the left of the causeway before entering Estero Island, great view, great vibes. We tried Calamari at just about every other place around and Parrot...Key is 100% the best in the area for Calamari (I recommend squirting the lemon juice all over before dipping in the sauce). Their drinks are amazing as well (Blue Macaw pictured). We've come here at least 3-4 times during our vacations for 2 years in a row, and it was the first place we went as soon as we landed in Florida this year. They have never disappointed and their service is fantastic, will definitely be a lifetime favorite!More

Booked reservations thru Open Table for lunch. Went with waiter recommendations to have the Beach Burger as my profile states my allergies to seafood and I had already told him I couldn’t have the fish tacos. I asked if they could make it chicken tacos...and he said no. To my surprise the Beach Burger was a fried chicken sandwich. Shortly after, I ate I began feeling I’ll. I asked if they use separate fat to fry items and he said they only have one frier. Needless to say that is not good practice. Waiter was nonchalant about it. Began to blame me for not letting him know of my allergy. I reminded him my profile on reservation as well as the taco conversation. He could care less, didn’t even notify management. My family had to rush eating so I could get to the nearest pharmacy to obtain some Benadryl as I was starting to get a very bad reaction. The food my family had was good. The way in which my situation was handled was very poor. Be mindful of fried items if allergic to anything.More

We (about 30 people) arrived by boat(s) around 11am for lunch. Dock master did a great job handling the boats and was greatly appreciated. The staff was very attentive, and service was swift and on spot. The food was very good all-around and all of...our Boat Club members enjoyed this outing. Thank you for your great service and food. We will be back in the future. Sincerely, Commodore EdMore

Beautiful view, excellent service, and delicious food. Our server Jill was terrific - friendly and attentive. The Mahi house specialty was to die for and my husband enjoyed the fried shrimp basket with house made chips.
