Stopped in for an early dinner. Plenty of seats at the patio bar in the cleverly redesigned drive up area. Sam, Lawrence, and Jennifer were the bar team. All were knowledgeable and quick to offer recommendations from diverse menu. Beef on Weck and fish and chips were excellent. Draught beer was cold and promptly served. Refills were offered promptly and banter was fun. A bit loud leads to 4 stars. We will return when in the neighborhood!

Sadly, this was disappointing. Group--two tables of 6-- of us ate there on a Saturday for lunch. We had to shout to be heard. Not a whole lot of people inside so you would think our orders would arrive fast. Not so. The food was okay--nothing special. Although, the Gyro was very flavorful with very little sauce. Ask for more and was charged for extra sauce on my bill. Never has this happened. For the price of the wrap, this certainly should not have happened. No decorations inside--very sparse. Waitress was attentive and helpful with orders but----just another bar.

The Lazy Parrot has been open for about six weeks, after a long period of construction. The food however more than makes up for the long wait. It appears a rather Island based menu. My wife ordered the Shrimp and Grits. Though every restaurant puts their spin on this dish, this is different with the lemon butter and the bacon. It was still a tasty combination. I chose the Mahi Tacos, blackened with avocados, tomatoes, shredded cabbage and chipotle sauce. The house made chips were done very well. For the grand finale the dessert menu has some tempting selections. The carrot cake is six layers and a substantial piece, definitely for two spoons. All told the meal came to $24 per person including drinks and dessert. They have cheaper items as these were main entrees.
The biggest drawback, and the reason, the restaurant earned a very good instead of an excellent rating, is the poor acoustics inside. Sound carries badly and though we were there when it was only partially full, it would have been almost painful if the place was full. The patio is an option but we chose not to sit there due to the heat. A good idea is to visit on less than peak hours.

It is nice to have another option for a sports bar type place. The bar is large, both inside and out. The food is good and there is a decent selection of both bar food, sandwiches and dinner entrees. The food we chose was good and appropriately priced. There were a few things that need to be smoothed out: my red wine must have been 90 degrees (we sat outside and I assume it was almost air temperature); one of the patrons was falling down drunk as he left (he fell twice and couldn't get up --- why wasn't he flagged?); our server couldn't answer several basic questions about the menu items. We do like the idea of the restaurant and will give it another shot, but they had best get their act together quickly or they will not succeed.
