Food was amazing, great price for a 12 oz ribeye. The creme brulee was a little too charred in flavor. The drinks were good. The pork belly over kimchee was amazing!

I’ve eaten at the Purple Parrot on 4 occasions over the last two years. The first was good the second was better, the third was great. This last was awful. Entirely too expensive for what was prepared and served. Unless I hear it has gotten better, I won’t eat there again. Cost outstripped the quality of food and dining experience by making miles.

The definitive temple of Gulf seafood gastronomy. A charmed oasis in the midst of soulless commercial congestion.

Food was great, very slim crowd for a Saturday night. Only complaint was slow service. It took 30 mins from the time we sat down to get our first cocktail and remained slow. My last drink of the night, I had to get from the bar and bring back to the table. Beef short ribs, grilled fish and steaks were all good that night.

We came here for a New Year's Eve dinner date before heading to a movie and as always, I was not disappointed. There was a fixed menu this night as you chose from a selection of items from each course - all equally delicious. Of course, I love the look and feel of the restaurant itself with all the watercolor paintings by Wyatt Waters . This is the best fine dining restaurant in Hattiesburg and I highly recommend it.

Although I've enjoyed dining at Purple Parrot for many years, it seems to have slipped a notch. I was surprised that the bar waiter wore a tee shirt and jeans; also that the menu was printed on a small one-sided piece of heavy paper rather than a full-size menu that you'd expect in an up-scale restaurant. The menu is limited and there were no specials offered on this night. The service was average-to-slow and my steak was overdone.

I hope that this was just an off night for the Parrot.

We chose the Purple Parrot to celebrate our anniversary, and everything was PERFECT. Our waiter could not have been more attentive, and the food was divine! The seating and atmosphere were exquisite...quiet and romantic. The holiday decorations were beautiful as well. Overall, it was such a special evening, and the Purple Parrot made it all the more so. I absolutely recommend this restaurant for anyone celebrating a special occasion! Our dining experience was perfect!
