Bar and restaurant options here with very good seafood offerings from shell fish to fresh fish. Served by a caring staff who will fix to order any choices. Good for parties and large dinners or smaller, intimate gatherings. Very good wine selection as well. High food quality and excellent seasonings

My wife and I were in Hattiesburg for a family event, and we someone recommended this restaurant to us. I'm glad they did. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I suppose the fare offered by the Purple Parrot could be categorized as seafood based, New Orleans-type Creole cuisine. But they also offer a good selection of steaks.... More

We loved everything about dinner here. Our waiter was helpful and attentive without being hovering. The kitchen was very good about accommodating my gluten issues. My char grilled oysters were fresh and nicely prepared. My husbands' crab bisque was delicious. His steak and my fish came out exactly as ordered. Even the side dishes, (maque choux and sweet potato hash)... More

IS this place for real? They hold themselves out to be a decent restaurant. My steak was so cold, the fat/butter/whatever that was on the plate alongside the steak was congealed. Gross. It was cold through and through. I suppose they cooked the steak first and then let it sit while they baked off the sweet potato, which was at... More

One of the best meals we've had in a LONG time. Quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Every bite of every part of the meal was to be savored. Rib eye was so very flavorful. Decadent chocolate mousse was one of best chocolate desserts we've ever had. Split for 2 easily. Pricey but worth it for a special dinner.

My first time to eat there and it was a wonderful treat. It had a menu that was similar to a creative New Orleans restaurant. The menu also reminded me of a John Curence restaurant in Oxford! It was nice to find a great restaurant for lunch on the way back from Destin.

Went to dinner for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. Had the Duck Rolls, Corn and Crab Bisque, and the Blackened Snapper. If that wasn't enough, we also had the chocolate decadence for dessert. Excellent meal. Absolutely no complaints. From the time we walked in till the time we left, we absolutely enjoyed everything. The waiter and manager went over... More

We had a party of 8 for dinner on Saturday evening 5/14 to celebrate an MBA college graduation. I wanted to go to the Purple Parrot because I had enjoyed it so much in the mid-1990s when I travelled to Hattiesburg on business several times. I had particularly enjoyed their fried green tomatoes (my first) and their ambiance (sophisticated, art-inspired,... More

What a lovely surprise this place was. The best of the best. The menu choices were all difficult to choose from. Unusual, but perfect, combinations. The fish was so amazingly fresh. The vegetables were so full of flavor. Really beautiful. I wish they would open a place like this in my home town. So great. The waitress was so sweet... More
