Their food is very good. Reasonably priced, family priced. You can eat in or out on the porch. They have good fish, fries, shrimp, etc. In the cages on the porch they have parrots, big ones. The kids like to feed french fries to the parrots. You are right at the bay waters and can watch the boats come in... More

My son and I went here after horseback riding and it was the perfect lunch. All staff was super friendly, the food was good and hot, and I loved their gift shop!

Went fishing with Capt. Mark. Returned to have our fish prepared at the restaurant . Amazing. Had an incredible spread of food and every entree was fabulous.

We enjoyed eating here at Parrot Eyes. My hubby really enjoyed his blackened fish tacos. My beef enchiladas were just average. The service was amazing - we really enjoyed talking with Ludidina (not sure if I got that right). We would definitely return to eat here again.

Friendly staff, fun talking parrots, foosball and pool - great food (shrimp nachos, fish enchiladas especially). If you're going for fresh and healthy like a mixed green salad, this may not be the spot for you, BUT they will cook any fish you catch and they do a fantastic job with it no matter how you order it (we tried...

Your typical tourist restaurant location. Good view of the bay. Staff is average and more inclined to chat with other staff. Food prices are in the higher range and if not in large groups probably not a place to hangout. Good décor and lots of TVS if you want to watch a game.

Trying to find a good bar for a few cocktails. This isn't it. Closes at 8 pm, bar is brightly lit and TVs are placed for neck strain. Staff friendly b/c they were trying to close up and wanted us out!

This was our first visit - my husband was hesitant because "it sounds like bar food." I can't resist word play though so we stopped in. So glad we did! We sat on the balcony overlooking the water. The blackened fish tacos & chicken fajitas were great. Portions were ample & price was reasonable ($32 for 2 dinners & mixed... More
