This is a great neighborhood dive bar to stop by when you want a cheap/chill night. They have free pool, darts and board games to play which is always fun! The food is okay, basically typical bar food. Nothing special. I typically go for the drink specials that they have because they are super cheap for the Lakeview/Wrigley area. Super friendly staff and just a chill place to spend or start the night. 


Our goals for the night were clear - eat greasy bar food and drink our fill without spending our whole check - Parrots is the perfect dive spot for both. Unpretentious, not too crowded, and casual - just the low key spot I was looking for!
