About the Owners

Jeff & Melanie Gambino | Proprietors

Jeff and Melanie Gambino are originally from Fredonia, NY.   They have two sons, Jona (14) and Evan (12).  

The Gambino purchased an old bank building on the corner of Beneva and Webber which they extensively renovated and converted to a restaurant in a casual, tropical setting.   In May 2018, The Parrot Patio Bar & Grill  opened.  

In June of 2019, the  management at The Parrot Patio Bar and Grill announced that they were expanding to Bradenton!  The Parrot Patio Bar & Grill - Bradenton will open after it undergoes a brief period of renovation.  Stay tuned for Facebook updates on the grand opening date!

With a popular location already in Sarasota, on the corner of Beneva and Webber, The Parrot Patio Bar & Grill owners, Jeffrey and Melanie Gambino will bring their passion for great food and creative cocktails to Bradenton, FL.  The Parrot-Bradenton will provide an extensive menu, two full bars (inside & outdoor patio), live music and excellent service that you’ve come to expect when dining at The Parrot!
