I have been a patron of this place for years. It seems to me that the mark of an excellent restaurant is a harmony in the equation between the quality of the food one orders and the service which provides the food, as well as the dining experience in total. By this criterion alone, PPC must be rated not simply among, but head-and-shoulders above any restaurant of its caliber in the area. It's a gem of South MS, and stands adjacent to a number of other fine establishments--truly a place where, if one can't find the meal, the drink, and the service one desires, one must wonder why he ever endeavored the trip in the first place. My review make lack specifics in terms of dishes, waitstaff, or management. I hope my ebullience will suffice.

Took my wife and her sister
Took my wife and her sister there for her birthday. My wife is vegan and the staff not only accommodated her but went out of the way to find ways to make food she could eat and enjoy. While they did not have Muscato, her favorite wine, the manager introduced us to some new wines that we had never tried that she loved. It was a great experience.

BEST DINNING THE USA
We stumbled on the Purple Parrot one day at lunch thinking that we were entering a nice sandwich shop. To our surprise, we found a first class restaurant in Hattiesburg, MS. We now schedule our trips so that we have an evening in Hattiesburg and dinner at the Purple Parrot. They have an amazing wine list and some of the best seafood on the gulf. You can always depend on an inovative meal with impecable service.
We will be back.

The entire experience was great. The wait staff, the food, and the atmosphere was all excellent. I had the Maui Maui and lump crab meat and my girlfriend had the scallops. We also shared a half dozen chargrilled oysters. The only slight complaint was that the oysters veryied in size a little too much.

Hattiesburg, MS Areas Best
The service, food, and attention to detail are outstanding at this restaurant. While it is expensive, it is well worth visiting at least once. The only negative is that the menu's primary focus is seafood. So, the menu options are limited for those that do not want seafood.

The Purple Parrot was a pleasant surprise that I didn't expect to find in Hattiesburg. I had the sea scallops and my husband had the ribeye, accompanied by a bottle of pinot noir. Everything was fantastic, and the chocolate truffle layer cake was to die for. I would recommend this restaurant for date night or special occasions, but leave the kids with a sitter!
