With its huge grass-roofed patio, The Sandy Parrot looks as though it ought to have ocean waves lapping up against the surrounding sand. The echoes of the sea are even louder on the menu, which features a huge collection of grouper, crab, shrimp, tilapia, and mahi-mahi dishes rounded out by prime rib, sandwiches, and chicken. Preparations span the globe, drawing in such flavors as garlic teriyaki sauce, parmesan-laced lemon butter, and mango-papaya salsa. Live musicians take the restaurant's stage six nights a week, performing tributes to Motown and Elvis, hits from the '60s through the '90s, and sweeping arrangements of the dessert menu.
