We tried this restaurant for the first time today. Menu looked very promising with lots of varied choices. We tried a variety of fish tacos, fish enchiladas, Mexican plates. The refried beans and rice were unremarkable. The main dishes missed the mark especially since salsa...More

Stopped in because the name of this restaurant was awesome. We had the fish tacos, they were pretty good but didn't blow me away. It's kind of pricey, for what your getting. It's a typical tourist town, seafood restaurant.

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

They let a party of 7 people who were willing to order food and drinks and leave good tips walk out the door because this restaurant refuses to split a check. This is 2017! We were flabbergasted. Oh well. Their loss. I can't imagine why...More

Thank you for your review, it's been hot lately so we totally understand. We do have a wrap around patio deck so that if you move around the patio you will find a breeze, but on days like we have been experiencing lately, those seats...More

We came here by boat to have drinks and dinner on the patio, the sign on the door says swimsuits allowed on patio. We walk in and are denied service because of my girlfriend's bikini top, yet she's wearing shorts. I will never support this...More

We decided to have lunch here while we waited for the parasailing. The food was just OK. Oysters were very small and there was only 8 or 9 small oysters on our plates.
