    We started with a dozen oysters which were delicious. My sister had a huge shrimp cocktail, my brother had a nice selection of sashimi which he really enjoyed and my mother had a caeser salad with salmon that she reported to be very good. I loved the cioppino, amazing broth with lots of good stuff in it. It was a little noisy but fun. The service was very attentive but not intrusive and we had a great view of the Queen Mary. A perfect place for a family get together.

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We were a party of 6,with a reservation. They put us in the back room which has none of the ambiance of the restaurant. More importantly, there were 2 very large parties there (tables were put together and the large parties came after we were seated). This made the noise level terrible and the service poor. Regarding the food,one diner ordered the sashimi dinner (which he has ordered numerous times before). When it came it looked unappetizing and did not smell good. After waiting forever for the server, the dish was sent back and a salad ordered because it was quick and the rest of the group has finished eating. I did complain to the server and in the end was credited for a beer. Not asking for free food, just good quality and good service.

    Overall wonderful experience. Only negative was the parking. Had to park quite a ways away. It was the only parking not full. Metered parking. $6 for two hours. Not bad, however, dinner can some times be longer than 2 hours. So, we kept thinking throughout the dinner....what time is it? do we need to go put more money in the meter? Not really what we wanted to keep thinking about. Food was excellent. Garlic cheese bread is a must. Best surf and turf that I have had in a long time. Service was excellent. Great view.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    Parkers has been a destination eatery for our friends and family for many years, and it continues to deliver with consistently tasty food, extremely competent wait staff, and a brilliant view of the Queen Mary. The location in Shoreline Village makes you feel like you're on vacation -- just a half-hour from Los Angeles and a half-hour from much of the OC. We tried the seafood tacos this time -- shrimp, crab and salmon, each uniquely seasoned -- and they were delicious and filling. Bloody Marys are great, too.

    We got caught in holiday weekend traffic. I called to let them know, and they were completely accomodating by holding the table for an extra half hour. Once we arrived we were seated at a wonderful table when our guest informed us of his issue with air conditioning, so we asked to sit outside. They immediately set up a table for us outside. I haven't experienced his type of service recently, it was greatly appreciated and they definitely need to be commended for their over the top service. I had tried to make a reservation at my favorite restaurant by calling the manager and explainig the importance of my evening guest but was blown off by the manager Just as well as I know they would not have held the reservation.

    Dined on 8/26/2014
    We had a terrible experience at this venue. My boss and I were entertaining a client and the food was terrible -- her steak was overcooked, they brought me the wrong fish & had to take it back to the kitchen and they didn't cook my boss' fish enough. When they did bring out his new plate it appeared they had just thrown his original piece back on the grill - it even had bite marks from where he tried it. Our waitress let the manager know about the bad dishes and all he did was apologize - didn't take $1 off the bill. So we spent $230 for 3 dinners that were all terrible. I would not return and if i had not been in front of a guest i would have demanded our money back.

    Parker's Lighthouse is a landmark that does not disappoint. Overlooking the harbor at the edge of Shoreline Village, it is remarkably good for a restaurant that obviously attracts tourists and visitors to the Convention Center. I had a difficult time choosing from all the wonderful items on the menu. The crab-stuffed, pancetta-wrapped shrimp was absolutely delightful. We sat outside on a balmy Long Beach Friday night, and had a truly enjoyable evening.

    We have been going to Parker's Lighthouse for 25 years. It is a favorite. The food is always excellent, and they have a very good wine list (even if they have recently upped the prices a tad too much-- but they have a reasonable corkage fee). The view is spectacular, with all the boat traffic in and out of the harbor right outside. Service is always excellent. But watch out for the valet parking on weekends (they take up too much of the parking lot so it gets crowded) and the parking fee (restaurant validation is only for 2 hrs-- after that, you pay $1 every 10 minutes!!!!)

    My first visit was a weekday evening and got there 30 minutes prior to the reservation. We were very tired having come off a boat tour. The hostess was not that friendly and said if we wanted an outdoor seat she could not seat us earlier. We waited in the bar for the entire half hour while visibly seeing lots of outdoor seating - perhaps a staff shortage? As soon as we were seated, the service was acceptable and courteous but the winner was the view and great food. We sat looking out at the Queen Mary as the sun was setting. The food was really great starting with clam chowder served piping hot. The scallops were outstanding. My guest had a huge platter of seafood that was excellent as well. I would return and recommend to friends.

    The view was the only nice part of the meal! All three of us got lukewarm fish plates for dinner that we sent back and they asked us if we wanted to have it reheated. We asked for new plates and the second round was barely above lukewarm. The service was very slow and there was not even an offer of free dessert for making us wait almost an hour and a half to get our food that wasn't even good. At $35 a person, not including our wine, I expected a lot more from the food and the service. Ive had bad experiences at places before but usually they do something to try to make up for it. In this case, there was nothing. So not only won't I be back again, but I will be telling all of my friends about the poor service!
