Our rule of thumb when traveling is to eat only at local restaurants, no chains. We came across this little gem when looking for Crab Cakes in the Chesapeake Bay area. The first thing we noticed when we walked in, was the cleanliness. Everything felt...fresh and clean. The server immediately waited on us and was super helpful in explaining all of the dishes. ....and the food! The servings were huge and the food was incredibly flavorful and delicious. It did not disappoint. If you're ever in that area and you're looking for some terrific atmosphere, service and food, you owe it to yourself to visit this place!!!More

While staying in a VRBO property nearby, walked over to pick up a take out food order. The food was delicious and arrived so swiftly, I hadn't finished my beer which was ordered for the wait. Will be back.

Myself and a few friends went here yesterday to day drink and have lunch we were the only black people there .....our food was great as was our service and we spent over 200$ together just having drinks that were also great. We were in...a booth to ourselves we might have been a little loud but no one not even our server ever asked us to keep it down....as we walked out to our cars a young lady ran out after us and yelled “and you mfs don’t bring your asses back “......I won’t take away from how good everything was but that last 5 minutes when that happened made me say I would never go back here and I am telling every person I know about this experienceMore

We had the crab cake dinner and the pasta with mussels, both were tasty. There were $3 wells and $2.50 beers, good deals. They were doing doing social distancing well, spraying down tables and seats in between customers.

We ordered from Green Parrot while staying in the Chic's Beach area. The burgers were huge, fresh & delicious. The shrimp & grits were so mouthwatering -- not over cooked or under-seasoned. A large order was enough for dinner & breakfast the next day.

Visited Green Parrot for the first time and we really enjoyed the food. I got the fish tacos which were really good. My daughter got the crab cake sandwich and she absolutely loved it. Will definitely go back next time we are staying at Chics...Beach.More

Stopped in because I was in the neighborhood and it had good reviews. Absolutely did not live up to its reviews. I had the mahi-mahi special and there was nothing special about it - just a very bland piece of mahi-mahi. The mashed potatoes portion...was small and the garlic green beans were a bit tough with little flavor going for them. The she-crab soup to begin the meal had an acceptable amount of crab meat, but the soup was otherwise a bit weak/watery. The bar area (half the restaurant) was busy (with a few loud patrons). I love good local dives/spots and really had hoped to find a hidden, local gem based on the reviews, but, unfortunately, this just wasn't it and I don't plan to come back - too many other better options for seafood in Virginia Beach.More

We had visited other restaurants on Lookout Road, so we decided to try the Green Parrot Grill. It's a good local bar and grill. My wife had the shrimp tacos and I had a shrimp dinner. The food was excellent as was the service. The...restaurant is relatively quiet, so you can carry on a conversation.More

This was an interesting place located on a back bay of Virginia Beach. I didn't expect much going in there, and it was obvious that we were perhaps the only "non-local" patrons in the place. But we were treated in a friendly manner and got...a good lunch with good service. I had a bowl of soup with a small Caesar salad, both of which were very tasty. My friend enjoyed his lunch, but had an interesting observation about his drink; he said it was "very alcoholic," although people don't usually raise a fuss about that. The bathrooms are VERY tiny, and may be a problem for someone who is handicapped. But overall, this was a good lunch place and I would go back.More

I thought I had reviewed this place a couple of years ago, but I guess I didn't. I had lived in VB & Norfolk for several years & circumstances had me moving back to my home town. I met with 4 other girls on a...late Friday afternoon. None of us had been there before and we absolutely loved it! The waitresses were great and the food was excellent. One of us had a tilapia sandwich and another tried the meatloaf. Both were really good and served with a smile. We had so much fun with the locals! They were buying us drinks left & right, anything we wanted! Everyone was in a party mood and we totally had a ball!!More

The place has no atmosphere, terrible service, awful food, a bathroom smaller than one would find on a dingy and the drinks are expensive. However, there's a bright side! You could choose to enjoy the drunken waitress who hates you because she has to work...the restaurant instead of hanging in the bar! You can choose not to use the bathroom and get a UTI...giving you the opportunity to catch up with your PCP! You can choose to learn what types of roadkill the table adjacent to you eats! What an experience! DON'T EVER GO HERE!!!!!!!! THROW YOUR CLOTHES AWAY AFTERWARDS, THEY SMELL OF GREASE & DESPAIR!More

We’ve been going to the Green Parrot for lunch a lot over the last couple of years, particularly when it starts getting cold. The food is tasty with lots of selections and daily specials; the atmosphere is very casual; they have a solid assortment of...beers, including a couple of Virginia craft brews; the staff is friendly and efficient; and the prices are reasonable. We’ve had the hot crab dip (cheesy good), the lumpia (bite size and crispy), the crab balls (plump and moist), the Parrot chili (beefy and filling), the Cuban (love the Black Forest ham), and a sausage sub special (spicy), If you’re looking for what you might call a local watering hole with good food to spend a bit of time watching “the game” and talking with friends, then the Green Parrot’s the place.More

We hear good things about the Green Parrot, so we went with a small group. My wife and I both ordered a shrimp dinner and the dinner came to the table very dark brown color. Shrimp very tough. Cooked too long or too high oil...temp. Service was lacking. This is one grill I will avoid in the future.More
