The Green Parrot on Panama City Beach

Our first day in Panama City Beach, I watched AdventureMan’s head swivel 120° to the left as we drove down the main drag.

“Did you see that?” he exclaimed! “A ‘Mediterranean’ restaurant!! Woooo HOOOOOOO!”

We’ve come to learn that ‘Mediterranean’ is code for comfort food. It is not Mediterranean-Italian, or Mediterranean-Greek, it is Mediterranean like Lebanon or Syria or Palestine . . . it is comfort food.

Sigh. Or close enough. There is no machboos, and sometimes the felafel aren’t home made. Still, we know we’ll give it a try.

On our last night in town, it is the perfect night to go. 00GreenParrottExterior

The owner is a delightful Lebanese import named Hani, and he is a word-of-mouth phenomenon on Panama City Beach. He has many fanatically loyal customers, and people recommend him all the time. We can see why. He loves what he is doing, and it shows.

Everything tasted so good. We can understand how he is developing such a following – his food is really good.
