A Parrot’s Story
When I opened the Parrot Bar and Grill in October 2010 I wanted to create a laid back atmosphere for locals and tourist alike. I could not compete with the five star eateries on 5th Ave and 3rd St, and I didn’t really want to. What I wanted was address the lack of options available for people who just wished to have a cold beer and a ½ lb juicy burger and still go home with some money left in their pockets. I wanted The Parrot to feel closer to Key West than Naples, with tourist in t-shirts and shorts sipping tropical drinks by the Marina, boaters just off their rides sharing time with the sandy and tanned just off the beach, bikers out for a ride and business people stopping in for their after work “vacations in a glass”. Tucked away, off the beaten path, a little worn and slightly weathered but clean and comfortable, The Parrot is open and inviting. I wanted it to be just like the place Toby Keith sings about.
Open 7 days a week, from 11am – 2am, The Parrot Bar is a family and pet-friendly business located on a marina near Tin City. We pride ourselves with a lunch menu that includes over 15 items under $8. Featuring: ½ pound burgers made fresh, never frozen, freshly made crab cakes, not pre-breaded or frozen, our chicken is grilled or blackened to perfection and when put on top of our Garden Salad makes for a hardy meal for the health conscious, our fish sandwich and platters taste as good as grouper but without the price. And don’t get me started on the wings. Our kitchen stays open nightly till 1:30am, so put that “Big smile on your face” and stop in.
