The Blue Parrot is kind of the locals bar in Sandy Bay. It's not on the beach, and in fact it is on the main road, but it's set off the road just enough that you don't really notice the cars going by. It's really more of a pub / bar and grill than a straight up restaurant, and many of the local ex-pats hang out here. The people are pretty friendly and welcoming, and it's a great place to get the "inside scoop" on the island. They've got a small staff, so if you're in a hurry, you probably shouldn't visit Roatan, er, I mean you might do better to choose somewhere else until you have a little more time.

The menu is a blend of Jamaican, Asian, American, and Seafood. We had dinner here a couple of nights and while nothing we had to eat stood out as particularly outstanding in terms of food, the meals were solid and the drinks are excellent (they definitely don't water them down nor skimp on size!). Of the food items, my recommendation is the coconut battered shrimp, which were cooked very nicely. If you are interested in trying a monkey lala (the Roatan signature drink), Carol makes one of, if not the best, on the island.

We enjoyed a very good dinner at the Blue Parrot recently.
The menu had nice variety - a little something for everyone. service was very quick and very pleasant. Seating was available inside and outside, and although it was close to the road, it didn't "feel" road-side-ish.
The drinks were great (we tried monkey la la's in several restaurants and this was my favourite one) and after dinner we had a game of pool beside the bar.

Blue Parrot is a friendly, "local pub" kind of place. Not too expensive, but with good food and drinks. It's definitely a great place to meet people and enjoy a drink, particularly is you are staying at Sundancer or in that area.

Blue Parrot
The Parrot is in Sandy Bay, right on the main road; right as you head toward West End. There is lovely open air seating and a menu that is all over the place. Everything from local rice and beans to jerk chicken. The bar is a lovely (and oftentimes lively) place for a cocktail and a chat. Carol the ex-pat (Great Britain) who mans the bar is not only a mean mixologist (try one of her famous (infamous?) monkey la la concoctions! She is also one of the loveliest women I have had the good fortune to meet. The Parrot is a perfect replacement for the now gone, much missed WetSpot (we miss you Michelle and Alex!

Ice cold beers in a great environment. Carol is super nice and everyone makes you feel at home. Would definitely go back for a shrimp quesadilla and Port Royal!
