Up for grabs just down the road from the Monaville General Store: family-friendly biker bar and pool hall The Thirsty Parrot Bar & Grill. A PR rep tells Swamplot that the owners are retiring from running the Waller County restaurant, which has been open since 2006. Concurrent listings on LoopNet and HAR (at 13200 and 13302 FM 359, respectively) are both running with a $1.6-million asking price, which includes the 14-ish-acre swath of land that the bar sits on, all kitchen equipment, and all of the other buildings on the property: that’s a 3-bedroom ranch house, a second guest house, a pavilion, a barn, and a stocked fishing pond, plus a few other hangers-on. Here’s a quick tour around the place, including a stop by the live parrot collection:

Hempstead Restaurateurs Flying the Coop

  • Way out there! When I lived in Katy, I used to have to drive to the Waller County Courthouse now and again as I was an Election Judge, and would pass by this place. I always wondered how they stayed in business, it was not always open, and only ever had a lot of people on two, or three nights per week. I remember when they opened up too, but I did not go for fear of getting pulled over by a DPS trooper who patrol those back roads just looking for offenders… riding dirty. HA!

  • Maybe the next owner will spend more than the current owner’s $300 decorating budget for the inside of the bar. It has potential, and that area is growing.

  • Montrose Resident,
    The Parrot is only closed on Mondays! The food is excellent, the Restaurant is always clean and packed on the weekends! We all love the place!
