We have been visitors to St. George Island for 14 years and the Blue Parrot is always first on our list of restaurants to visit. I have to say that the last few years have proven more disappointing than rewarding. The most obvious pluses of going are the view and the outdoor dining. Who doesn't love sitting right on the beach overlooking the gulf and the waves? The food is really quite mediocre with most every option being fried. We typically order the crab claws basket appetizer and the grouper sandwiches, and I will say the sandwich size has gotten smaller over the years while the price has steadily increased. The service is adequate, but rarely do we get someone extremely overly joyful or even happy to be serving tables. Though I will admit we usually receive our food in a reasonable amount of time, unless the restaurant is really busy. All in all, we visit the Blue Parrot more out of tradition than for its food value...that and the amazing views.
Probably our favorite place to eat on the beach. There is not a ton of dining choices on the island unless you really like oysters. My family really likes this plave. The food is good for th price, the best thing about the place is the atmosphere. You are almost eating on the beach. Once you get your food you will want to slow down and enjoy your meal and the view. Get there early because a long wait can occur if you get there at the wrong time.
We visit St, George island several times a year.Had a lovely three day weekend there recently and ate at the Blue Parrot for the first time.Very friendly waitress,food was average(great cole slaw).The decor inside was a surprise,not a good one.They need to spend some of the money spent on the outside,on the inside.
Great seafood and a Great view with outdoor dining. We eat here every time we're on St. George Island. Best combination of food and atmosphere on the island. Writing this review just makes me wish I was there now!
My friends and I take an annual beach trip to Carrabelle over the Fourth, which always includes a trip to The Blue Parrot on St. George. We have dinner on the deck and then stay for the incredible fireworks display. It's a 4th of July tradition we look forward to each year. The food is really good; I highly recommend the crab-stuffed grouper. My friend lives for the oysters on the half-shell... along with his dinner.
