This is NOT authentic Jamaican fare. Okay ""Coconut chicken strips""... The dish does suggest that you're getting an ""americanized"" version of something authentic, but when you list ""Jerk Chicken"" or ""Jerk Pork"" on your menu... Authentic jerk chicken is slow cooked in a 55 gal drum over wood coals. The bones are left in the meat and cooked with the meat. The same goes for jerk pork. The ""Jerk"" is sauce, and i... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

Seems like a decent enough place. Went there Friday night, we didn't get there until 8:30 and was told by the hostess there would be an hour and 15 minute wait. Looking around it didn't seem like it would take that long and it didn't. It took about 10 minutes. Waiter was good. We had the 1/2 order of nachos to snack on for the 4 of us (two couples) and there was plenty left over. My wife wasn't thrilled with he... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I just heard about the most unprofessional approach from management and the discrimination that my friends have experienced. I've always knew about the infamous tuesdays and thursdays. But...to be accused of not ""tipping"" first of all that is a choice....it means to insure prompt service. The customer is always right. These women were treated as though they were teenagers bailing out on a bill. Once this circulates... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
We have been going to the Painted Parrot since they first opened in their old location. When they moved, we followed.... we love the new location and their food. \r \r Their fish fry is one of the best I have ever eaten. The breading is light and very flavorful, but not overpowering as to take away from the fish. It is all you can eat and I think it is so cute that they serve it in a garbage can cover.\r \r I... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
My husband and I truly enjoyed our first meal at the Painted Parrot this evening. Even though it was busy (a Saturday night), we only waited 10 minutes for a table. The waitstaff was very professional, friendly, and genuinely polite. We had the curried pork and the jambalaya. The food was very spicy and flavorful. The atmosphere was fun and lively. We'll definitely go back to try some of their other dishes.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
This restaruants Friday fish fry is the ultimate best Ive tried in Milwaukee so far. i can't complain about price, product, or service! The fish melts in your mouth and the drinks are good with the meal. If you are a fish fry chaser then my number one would be painted parrot!Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
My husband and I were not impressed with this restaurant. The waitresses were lazy, and seemed like they didnt know how to seat people, the food was nothing to rave about. The lettuce they serve under the meat was brown and wilted. The meat servings were small. I ordered a mojito and when it came to the table the limes were brown and just looked spoiled. I have been to Jamaica 3 times and this food is far away... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
My friend was leaving the country and got all her friends together for her Going Away. She heard they had All You Can Eat Crab at Painted Parrot. She called for reservations for 14 of us. They told her there was another party of 24 so they couldn't guarantee crab for her whole party. She said that only a few of us would be eating it. They said it would be okay and made the reservation. When we got seated the party of... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
