Parrot Eyes Restaurant and Bar in South Padre Island Texas


Parrot Eyes Restaurant & Bar is a great place to spend your evening! They have tons of stuff to do, no matter how you like to have fun :)  Here is what Parrot Eyes has to say...
Parrot Eyes first opened in 1982 as a fruit smoothie and fajita taco stand at the "Jetties", now known as Isla Blanca Park, on the south end of South Padre Island. Later relocating to the north end of the Island on the bayside in 1988, we offered watersport rentals, outdoor dining, a full service bar, and Beautiful sunsets. Parrot Eyes made lifelong friends at the location for almost 20 years. In March 2009 we opened at our new home at 5801 Padre Blvd. We are happy to continue with some of the old traditions, and eager to begin new ones.
 The Parrot Eyes night life is truly amazing they have even made their own drink names, and they stay open until 2am! This is the ultimate party spot in South Padre Island! It is 2 stories and up stairs they have live music on some days, and Karaoke! Have fun at Parrot Eyes!
