Diner Reviews
  • "My out if town guests who travel extensively in Europe and in the US where impressed with the wine selection and the prime rib. Neighborhood atmosphere with world class food!"

  • "We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Our daughter contacted the manager and made arrangements through him for our daughter and family and our son and family to have dinner and drinks on them. He also was kind enough to purchase the greeting card. We also appreciated the complimentary, delicious Creme Brûlée Cheesecake. Thank you again for making our anniversary very memorable!"

  • "Being from Chicago you have a pretty high standard of flavor and quality in the foods you order from a restaurant. I ordered the half slab of ribs and while the meat was well cooked the BBQ sauce was very bland and no seasoning at all. Definitely would not recommend this place for dinner."

  • "I love Parker's for lunch or dinner. Always high quality food and excellent service. This was a business lunch and we both had the club sandwich. So simple and so good!"

  • "First time to this restaurant. Great selection of local beers. Our meals were delicious. Our waiter was attentive, prompt, and friendly. We will be back."

  • "They have a huge sign out front that happy hour is every day from 3:30 to 7:00. However, you have to be sitting in the bar to get the specials. I heard 2 other tables by us ask for the happy hour specials, too. We would have asked to sit in the bar if we had known. They should serve happy hour prices throughout the restaurant. Silly rules make for unhappy customers. Waitress was super slow. Food was pretty bland. For such a pricy place, we expected top notch and didn't get it."

  • "The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. This is one of the top restaurants that we ate at."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Terrible service. Waited over one hour and fifteen minutes. One waitress to serve 8 tables is not going to cut it. When told about the lack of service it was apparently ignored. They need to get their act together or we will never go there again."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Our food was very good. Our server was very attentive. We would return to Parkers again. We were there for an Anniversary. Wouldn't necessarily say it was a romantic place, but the food is very good. The service was very good and our server paid very good attention."

  • "Added to good food and drinks was the special service of our waitress, Hannah, who became a "friend" and gave great personal service without being pushy. Hostesses were great about opening doors for us, as one of us has a walker."

  • "My wife and I love going to different restaurants on Sundays for brunch, this one was worth the drive from Dayton."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The steaks were very bland and had no real flavor. The service was horrible. When we ordered I changed a couple things on the salad and she (older lady) gave me attitude about it. When we were finished with our meal we waited almost 15-20 minutes for her to come back around to give us our checks. The buser asked her twice to please come to our table with our check. If you are going to spend over $100.00 on dinner I definitely wouldn't recommend this place."

  • "I dined at your restaurant last Sunday for brunch. I am typically a customer four or five times a year. This past Sunday, your food was up to your normal high standards. Your service, however was not. My guest and I were promptly seated when we arrived. After that we were, by and large, ignored. After a wait that got uncomfortable, I had to flag down an employee and have them explain how your brunch worked, (it was my first time at your Sunday brunch) and then had to do the same "flagging down" anytime we needed something. The wait for any request by your staff "if we needed anything" was just too long. Unfortunately this was the birthday celebration of my guest, and your poor service, was certainly untimely."

  • "What a great way to celebrate 47 years together - enjoying a cocktail while complimented by the finest calamari and then following with an excellent cut of prime rib and a superb twist on mac & cheese... Our evening could not have been better."

  • "Six of us celebrated an 83rd birthday of our dear friend. Our food and service at Parker's was outstanding!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We always have had a great time at Parkers but this time the buffet was very low on selection and the prime rib was VERY raw! I have to say that the manager was right on it and took great care of us!"

  • "Well set up - easy to move around - shrimp was great! Lots of favorite - highly recommend!"

  • "quick service, friendly server with good suggestions…our entire evening was wonderful. food was worth the $"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We usually have a nice time at Parker's. This time was flawed due to a server who just did not seem to care. I asked a few questions that were greeted with unhelpful comments. For example, I asked if I could substitute a vegetable for mashed potatoes and was told: you can always order a vegetable extra. That really did not answer my question. I also asked if the pot de crème had peanut butter in it (the menu indicated it was served with peanut butter but did not really state that peanut butter was in the dish). The response was "I think so". Not helpful at all. A good server would have asked the chef and, by then, I was too unhappy to ask her to ask the chef. Not acceptable for a check in excess of $100. Hope this was a one-time thing."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "This was my first visit for dinner having only previously been to Parker's for lunch. My expectations were easily met as has become the norm for Parker's. Dynamite Sticks are a must starter and the calamari was as good as I've had anywhere else in town. The chopped salad was very tasty and the special of the evening - Florida grouper - was cooked to perfection. I've always been extremely happy with my visits to Parker's and all without a single incident. Thank you, Parker's!"

  • "We had brunch here and the food was excellent, didn't mind the complementary bloody mary either. Great place for groups, outdoor dining, and has a great Derby theme. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I have been to Parker's many times. I love their special buffets for holidays and the decor is so warm and inviting. This last visit was for my daughter's 25th birthday and i even made special note of that in the reservation and they DIDN'T EVEN MENTION IT TO HER! I asked not to be seated near this family with noisy children and they put us 2 tables away...i should have walked out then. They waitress gave us very little attention regarding our refills or requests. The tast of the food was fine but my potatoes were cold, since the others in the party were ok i just didn't rock the boat. i left there thinking that it had REALLY GONE DOWN some how."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Our server seemed to be in a tremendous hurry to get us in and out. Our server rushed us for an order, then our main entrée came out before our salads were complete. They came to clear dishes before we were finished eating. Also, in a bad luck seating, we had a table of four next to us that were so loud that we could hardly converse."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I was looking for a place convenient for my friends that had a good atmosphere, allowed us to chat and review with each other what was happening in our lives. We had a quiet table with an excellent server and the food was well-prepared and tasty. I would highly recommend this place for a small gathering of friends. "

    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Great place to go for a very upscale brunch at a reasonable cost. Prime rib, ham, house smoked salmon are great finds along with the rest of a normal brunch menu and omelet station. Wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive and saw to our every need. Buffet staff were great also and gave you what you asked for and were very pleasant to talk with."

  • "We were a party of 8 and each one of us were treated as if there were just 2 at the table. I had the chicken pot pie. The puff pastry was light and airy and the filling was full of chicken and vegetables. Nice place for a friends get togehter"

  • "Great variety options. Lamb burger very tasty. Sat in bar section which was more room, but had terrible service."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "I was looking for a new place to celebrate our anniversary with a good Sunday Brunch. I was hoping to find a reasonably-priced place with really good food that offered a buffet. This place did not disappoint. They had a good mix between breakfast items and lunch items, including excellent prime rib, good fresh shrimp & salmon, a make-your-own-omelet station, and waffles. The ambience was really nice: the buffet was in its own room so you didn't feel like the dining area was overcrowded with people trying to get food. The service there was very friendly and helpful. I can't speak to anything beyond Sunday Brunch, but I would recommend this place for that."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We love coming here for brunch. The omelet bar is fantastic! The prime rib is so tender and juicy and it tastes wonderful with the horseradish sauce. "

  • "The food and service are the main reasons why I am a repeat customer. Great Place for a date or company dinner/lunch. Quiet and reserve atmosphere. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The place didn't seem clean and was way overbooked. Service was fair at best. Our table was in a corner blocked to any clear path to come and go to the buffet by three long tables and several customers and staff. We had to stand over people with our plates of food waiting to squeeze through the tables. The food was just ok- nothing special and certainly not worth the trouble of weaving through everyone. The whole buffet area was untidy with food dropped and spilled everywhere and staff standing around not doing anything to take care of it. The whole experience was a huge disappointment. "

  • "I had dinner at Parkers about a month ago with a group of neighborhood ladies, it was great!! I got the Shrimp & Prime Rib. It was delicious! My husband has been wanting some good Prime Rib with au jus that is Gluten Free so I told him how good the Prime Rib w/au jus is at Parkers and it is Gluten Free! So we went back together. The Prime Rib was again delicious but the shrimp just weren't what they were when i went the month before. They were fishy and had tomatoes with them which they did not have the last time i visited. So needless to say the shrimp were not up to par so I sent them back. We will return and hopefully the shrimp will be better like the previous visit, otherwise I will just skip the shrimp from now on. "
