After our first UVA football our host took us to the Lazy Parrot as they had eaten there before and enjoyed it. Not the case on this day. Restaurant was not crowded but extremely noisy. We ordered a "starter" of potato skins. The worst. Who hides BBQ sauce under the cheese on a potato skin. Gross! After the skins were... More

We arrived on a Saturday night, around 6 pm, and while the restaurant was busy, it wasn't packed. Waitress didn't take our orders until 6:15. It was at least 7 pm by the time our food arrived. I got the French dip sandwich, which was decent, if unremarkable. A friend got the fish platter, which he liked. My husband got... More

Great little restaurant! Has booths, tables, and hightop tables. Has a pool table and a covered outdoor patio. Food was great and the prices were on the cheap side. Nice atmosphere, okay service.

had lunch there with friends. Food was average. Atmosphere not my style. My friends didn't care for food or environment. Probably won't return.

Food was ok, portions small, had the beef brisket platter. We also ordered the pulled chicken platter, but the didn't have any left. End up with the chicken taco dish. Decent portions (you get 4), but the looked like the forgot to add liquid to the taco seasoning. It is basically a sports bar, and there were several very obnoxious... More

Whenever I'm in Charlottesville, I usually go to the Lazy Parrot at least once. Their BBQ is very good and they have about 8 different choices for BBQ sauce. I also had a craft beer on tap. Happy hour drinks for craft beers are only $2.50 so definitely a good bargain. On this particular visit, I had a different waitress... More

My hubby, daughter and I went here for lunch for the first time today. It turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Our waitress was adorable and gave a great recommendation for the sweet spicy wings! They were great- meaty and wonderful mustard, spicy sauce. Our daughter had the bacon, ham and cheese on a pretzel roll and loved... More

This is basically a poolroom-bar serving food and it's noisy. There is outdoor seating. I understand that some people adore BBQ but I'm not one. On the entire, extensive menu, the only option for a vegetarian was the house salad featuring iceburg lettuce. Oh, well. I ordered a Corona, but the lime was so aged that it would not pop... More
