Menu was not very exciting. They were out of Jack Daniels and TX Whiskey. I’ve never been to a place that had no Jack Daniels.
The waiter, Cole, tried hard and was very apologetic. Maybe it was just an off night...
Ask the server for drink recommendations. The wines and cocktails were the perfect accompaniment to the always delicious meals at Purple Parrot. Don’t miss the seafood gumbo and fresh fish.
The food was delicious, and the servings were generous. The fried green tomato appetizer was a meal in itself. Great gumbo, too. I will return if I am in Hattiesburg.
Awesome experience for dinner. Who knew that they manage the noise level by managing the number of people dining at any one time? Dont miss this one.
Outstanding service and food! Don’t miss the opportunity to dine here!!
Always a great meal and great environment. My wife is a celiac and they take great care to serve her special needs.
I am always satisfied with the staff and quality of the food at Purple Parrot, no exceptions.
Absolutely incredible experience. I had the opportunity of proposing to my girlfriend here, and the experience was picture-perfect. The staff was incredibly welcoming and accommodating, and the food was worth writing home about. Fantastic experience!
The crab cakes, grilled group club and salmon were all delicious and the whole dining experience was perfect!
Celebrating a friend’s 93rd birthday! Food and service was WONDERFUL! We will definitely come again.
Our waiter Bryce was amazing and helped to make the evening even more enjoyable.
Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Food was excellent and overall ambience was lovely.
Outstanding service and the brunch is always wonderful.
Sorry Robert St.John..We try the PP every year at least once in hopes that we are wowed but its just the same disappointment each time. The place has such a great atmosphere but the service is generally just very average to bad, and not well prepared. The entrees are lacking but we did have a really good scallop appetizer . I so want it to be good but it is not. I had to laugh at one of the servers as he pick up a plate at the table next to us and the person at the table complimented the steak and he stopped and looked back at her and said "do you think I would lie" rather than thank you!! anyway I think I'm done with the PP. just very average.
Very nice place with great food from appetizer to main course. Service was impeccable, and the ambiance was excellent.
Exceptional from beginning to end. Purple Parrot is truly a gem of the Hattiesburg area.
The steak was ordered rare and cooked well plus. The potatoes were under cooked. The menu on line is nothing like the actual menu. Once food came no one ever came back to check on us until we asked for the check.
Valentines supper with wife
Fantastic service and higher end food
Very much enjoyed taking a daughter and her Mom for their birthday celebrations. Thanks for enhancing the experience.
This is definitely the best dining experience I have had in Hattiesburg. The server was attentive to our needs, the room was quiet (no annoying rock music), and the food was excellent.
The drum was cooked to perfection, both mine and my wife's. It rivaled any we have ever had - even in the Cajun mecca of New Orleans! Our waiter was superb, professional and attentive. We rate the evening our favorite of our entire trip.
My dining experience was outstanding! The food was delicious and presentation was superb. My server Jess was courteous and solicitous but far from obtrusive- just perfect.
My college friends and I have been meeting for lunch at the Purple Parrot for years. It's a two hour drive for us so you know we really enjoy the attentive service, ambiance, and of course, the delicious food . I have also recommended this restaurant to all my friends. We plan to continue this tradition for many years to come.
Jazz Brunch was Amazing!
Sunday before Christmas brunch. I was expecting a more lavish brunch selection from the advertising Hoping for the prime rib at the carving station. Champagne was included but if it was a mimosa cost was $10 ? For a splash OJ? Omelets and crab cake was good. Maybe we’ll try again.
Pretentious and overpriced menu that doesn’t live up to its reputation.
Our server MADE our experience. It was my boyfriend’s 31st birthday and she was fantastic. Always ask for Christine.
We came in from out of town and it appeared this was the best restaurant in town from reviews. We were really pleased with the food, ambiance and service. The drinks were really good. Would try it again if we are in town again. Our waiter was really nice and friendly.
The steak was amazing ! It melted like butter in my mouth. Excellent service and good wine selection
Very pretty, waiter was very attentive as we were the only ones dining. Food was subpar, bland, no flavor. Not a place I would recommend or go back.
Much better than last experience. Speckled trout was well cooked . I should have asked for lemon to enhance the flavor.
Excellent food, service, and venue. Will certainly return. I ate the blackened trout and it was absolutely delicious. Also, I had a Sazerac and was very pleased.
My aunt use to take me to the purple parrot often many years ago. I came back to Hattiesburg and wanted to try it again for a special occasion. Still very good food and our waiter was wonderful.
We very much enjoyed our experience at Purple Parrot.
We enjoyed our pre-show meal at the Purple Parrot. The crabmeat beignets were wonderful - light and crispy on the outside, flavorful on the inside. The cocktails were all very well thought out. The wine recommendations were spot on and the steaks were cooked to our liking. We especially enjoyed the quiet and intimate atmosphere for our date night. We will be back!
Jessica was the best waitress ever! So attentive and nice! Food was amazing!
I have enjoyed fine dining in several nations. This was the as good as any place I have eaten around the world. The steak was the best I have eaten anywhere in the United States.
We had a great meal and wine. Chris the waiter was top notch. Very pleasant atmosphere and upscale. We had great Stags Leap wine and very good steaks
