Had a good burger and a few cold ones at the Parrot's Cay. Busy Place. Place looked a little worn, and could use some remolding. The booths were a little cramped. But most people there seemed to be having a good time. Was able to...More

If you haven't been to Parrot's Cay, you're definitely missing missing out! It's 21 and up. The food is fantastic and the service is the best I've seen around. Though I have tried numerous items on the menu, I'm kind of a creature of habit,...More

The wings were overcooked, extremely salty and the sauce had no flavour. My deep fried pickles were barely breaded and lacked any discernible flavour other than fried. The service was pretty good considering how busy it was.

I have tried to get a seat at the Parrot's Cay many times over the past year, and the wait was too long. I started going to this restaurant when it first opened, and the food is delicious. Seating, however, is greatly limited. The staff...More

This crack-in-the-wall college dive bar is the last thing you'd expect in the plaza that it's in. Crowded picnic tables with decades of history carved or sharpied into the planks and walls are everywhere. Great craft beer selection. All that was cool, until we found...More
