    very nice place.. went on a Sunday night.. (slow night for servers) you would think service would be exceptional. We sat in an empty station for 20 minutes before we were greeted. The waiter was the poster child for "surfer dude" no professionalism, whatsoever. I ordered the king crab legs (high ticket item). He stopped by once (when I hadnt even tasted the meal) to "check in". The crab legs were dry, rubbery and cold. When he FINALLY came to deliver a check he asked, "how was it? my response "it was awful, but no one checked in so i ate it". he said "i dont have much to do with that" and didnt even send a manager to the table. Bottom line: you charge $60 a plate.. it better be at least decent.. it wasnt and no one seemed to care... AWFUL

    How can I write a review of something so predictably perfect. Whenever I've gone to this restaurant, I have always been met with above expectations for any item you can name, e.g., food, service, view, etc. A review of this establishment is like reviewing if the sun came up this morning; of course it did; just as expected. Was your visit to Parker's Lighthouse great; for the answer please review the pervious sentence!

    i was very happy to celebrate my anniversary at PARKER'S LIGHTHOUSE. I've always loved their ambiance and scenic views of the marina. Food quality was great, and so were the entrees. A little bit on the pricey side, but then again I don't go there every weekend, so well worth it. The Cadillac Margarita was a bit lacking this time... too bad as I always get at least 2 each visit, but not this time as a result. Not to worry though, as the full order of STEAMERS clams was EXCELLENT!!! The broth was very tasty, clams were fresh tasting and not fishy in the least bit. I almost ordered a second dish they were so DEELISH. Parker's Lighthouse always brings an enjoyable evening for us. I'm sure to recommend to others without hesitation.

    I had high hopes but sadly the service was poor, little attention to detail including leaving used silverware and napkins on table etc throughout the meal. The seafood platter tasted as if it had been frozen and defrosted. The Seabass was excellent which was the only saving grace

    Been here a number of times. The place, as they say in old school, is just peachy-neat-o-keen. The atmosphere inside is warm and inviting. The views of the channel with boats in transit all around is just sweet refreshing for City dwellers. Order the cheese bread. Wonderful balance between melted cheese and fresh warm bread. Yum. Tried the grilled swordfish. Awesome, fresh, moist and minimally but adequately seasoned. Yum, yum. Grilled veggies equally good. The toll house dessert was a bit dry this time around. Gosh darn. Even so, still a wonderful dessert if you like toll house cookies, ice cream or chocolate. lol Great place always feels special and delivers a great dining experience!

    We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday, we have been there before. The restaurant and views are beautiful. The food was very good, my husband ordered something that they were out of and the waitress recommended something else that I think was the best dish of the evening. Wait staff very helpful and friendly. My daughter can't wait to go back and to get what my husband had for dinner.

    Food was no better than a steak you might make at home. I had the filet. It was some what tender but lacked taste. And the sides looked thrown together. I wouldn't return. And since when do they put A1 on your table. Fleming's, Ruth Chris, Houston's... You name it. I've never been given steak sauce. But then again they all had very good steak. Maybe Parkers knows their steaks need it.

You all have this nailed, great food service and a view to die for. Thank you for making this enjoyable and affordable. Jeremy, thank you for stopping on your way out to discuss our Orin Swift.

    The restaurant had great views from most tables and the service was very good. The food was good but not great. The Risotto with Scallops was so rich that I couldn't really eat it. The Sashimi however was fresh and quite tasty. The wine list was good and they had alot of options based on price. I would go again if only for the ambiance.

We even got a free coupon for an appetizer. The waiter also turned on the heaters for us, because as you can guess we are used to the warmth. So great!! It will be on our permanent list of things to do in Southern California. Thank you so much!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
