What You'll Get
According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Cajun meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic New Orleans cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Cajun fare and drinks at Blue Parrot Bar and Grille in Wilmington. Today's deal is not valid for happy hour or lunch specials.
Blue and orange walls bedecked with New Orleans portraiture and knickknacks create a comfy, lighthearted vibe at Blue Parrot Bar and Grille, setting the stage for its menu’s Mardi Gras parade of fresh, colorful Cajun fare. Occupy twiddling and/or fire-starting fingers with appetizers such as the fiery voodoo shrimp ($9.95) or the savory chicken and andouille quesadilla ($10.95) before deep-sea diving into marine munchables such as the blackened redfish ($18.95) and blackened tuna sandwich ($9.50). Poultry fraternities will prefer to fill their digestive reservoirs with the delta chicken ($19.95), whereas traditionalists can savor the jambalaya’s authentic blend of chicken, andouille sausage, kielbasa, and shrimp ($18.95). Cap your foodie festivities with a Deep South dessert of pecan pie ($6.95) or the rum-drenched bananas Foster ($8.95).
Weekly live music and frequent events kick-start the lively environment within the Blue Parrot's friendly neighborhood confines. Conversationalists can get comfortable on Blue Parrot's outdoor patio, where they're free to sip cocktails such as the Cuban mojito ($7) alongside the restaurant’s centerpiece fountain and animatronic tree people.
This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
Zagat rated Blue Parrot Bar and Grille "good to very good." Although reviewers are mixed on the food and service, they praise the lively atmosphere and performers. Nine TripAdvisors give Blue Parrot an average of three stars.
- It’s “Mardi Gras every day” at “one of Wilmington’s best-kept secrets”, this “funky”, “low-key” Cajun that gets “three cheers” from fans for “divine” nachos, “outstanding” drinks and servers with “a sense of humor”, plus “live music” that “never disappoints” – Zagat
- …this is definitely the best N'Awlins cuisine I've have since leaving New Orleans 20 years ago! And the ambience definitely is pretty authentic! – TripAdvisor reviewer on 10/09/2008

About Blue Parrot Bar & Grille
From the strains of live blues resonating through its walls to the spicy kick of its habañero Voodoo shrimp, Blue Parrot Bar & Grille recreates the freewheeling, vivacious vibe of a New Orleans nightclub. Guests sip colorful mojitos and hurricanes as they dig into Creole and Cajun specialties, including étouffée, red beans and rice, gumbo, and jambalaya. Live bands primarily capture the gazes of diners, although the restaurant’s decor is interesting on its own. Murals, carnival masks, and posters evoke lively Bourbon Street scenes and Mardi Gras celebrations; outside, a brick patio surrounds guests with fountains, canna plants, and a large mural of a French Quarter–style inn.
