This is a good place for families with a great menu. We ate dinner outside and watched the sunset. We ordered chips and salsa which was so good. The blackened fish tacos were excellent and perfectly cooked. A great choice.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. There is a policy against splitting the check between diners, but our waiter accommodated us by splitting the check. Food was so so, but we have had worse.

We took our freshly caught fish to Parrot Eyes and they prepared it blackened, grilled, as fish tacos, and fish enchiladas. I can't say enough about how good their food is. Everyone recommended the enchiladas and we regret not getting more!

Came away feeling just ehh....Three of us got the fried fish basket and it was very bland. My fish seemed slightly over cooked as it was kind of chewy. Fries were good and my boys chicken tenders were actually pretty good as I ate the...More
