This place has the best view on the Island! The drinks are awesome and food is good! We always go here to eat the crab! We sit outside and the kids can play on the beach were we can see them, have a few drinks and enjoy the view until food comes! We literally spend a couple of hours here each time!

Large restaurant, on the beach, with in and outdoor dining available.
Fast, polite service and a good choice of food.

With few places to eat on the island, this would be my suggestion for: food quality, service, and beachfront view. This is the only restaurant beachside. Dinning inside and outside in the sun or shade.
Pull up a chair and have a cold beer or drink with raw oysters and other items as you enjoy friends, children, and especially the view!

Ate here 5/27/14. Good food, good service, great view! We stay at the Buccaneer Inn so its right next door. When I asked about the oysters, our waiter told us they were from Va. I appreciated the honesty. We usually eat here at least one time when visiting the island.

We had good memories of The Blue Parrot and it was our first stop when we got to the Island. On our first visit the restaurant was busy and our server appeared harried and unfriendly, however he was quickly replaced by a pleasant blonde waitress (sorry, I forgot her name!). Crab claws, fish sandwiches, snow crab legs, shrimp Po Boy were all good. I did not care for my fish tacos due to the tomato salsa normally served with beef tacos. The fries were all pretty limp as well. We returned later in the week and got the bum's rush because we unwittingly arrived a half hour before closing time. Hey, we were vacationing, and not watching the clock. The hostess showing us to our table turned her back and as she walked away said " Pager! Place the pager on the podium, please." We had the same waitress and she was pleasant as before. However, staff was cleaning the restaurant as we ate our meal, and in overhearing us discuss friends who had planned to join us we were informed, rather curtly by an eavesdropping staff member that "We close at 10, you know." The Blue Parrot will continue to thrive due to the marvelous location right on the beach and those yummy crab claws, but staff could use some work!
