Diner Reviews
  • "Disappointment... I will never come back to this place. Very commercial and the food is not high quality. ??????????"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "On their web site I typed in that I would be with two birthday girls. No need to put anything in because the don't read them. My wives vegetables had way to much pepper. My steak was like chewing gum. I hope it's gets better. It use to be great. Probably will not be back"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We had the king crab and scallops and it's some of the best in SoCal. Greg is a terrific waiter. This restaurant is a keeper."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "A very nice place to take someone for a special occasion. The service and food were great. Called prior to arriving to inform restaurant it was a birthday celebration and a special desert came out with a candle after our meal. We appreciated them remembering."

  • "Amateurish service for this level restaurant, food not better than decent."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I took my wife to Parker ' s Lighthouse for date night.The service was excellent. They were very professional. We also enjoyed the bar on the 3rd floor which also featured some live music. To top it off the food was amazing. This is a "must do again" experience."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "There aren't too many spots along the shore in LA County that offer a great menu, tasty dishes, attentive service, and a pleasant atmosphere with beautiful coastal views. My girlfriend and I had a delicious dinner there prior to a wonderful ride in the bay. Dined there on many occasions; highly recommend Parkers' Lighthouse."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Decent food... Probably overpriced. Hair in the butter, wrong food arrived at the table, gave me a cup of clam chowder while I waited. Waiter seemed harried, but was a nice guy. I don't think I will return."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I felt welcome and was well taken care of. We sat outside on the water. I had the clam chowder, which was excellent, and bbq pulled pork sandwich. It the greatest meal I've ever had, but wasn't bad either. Just ok."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "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!!!!)"

  • "Food was great, service was excellent.would highly recommend this Resteraunt to everyone."

  • "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."

    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Calamari was undercooked. Waitress was delayed and slow."

  • "Nice effient waiter ,nice view of the Queenmary and food was excellent. Will try to do dinner ther sometime."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "This Restaurant has great seafood and fresh fish you can't find at other places. It is so nice to have dinner at sunset right on the water. The food is delicious but poor selection of desserts. Overall my wife and I liked the restaurant a lot BUT: with regards to customer service, it is ok to suggest gratuity on the bill but doesn't look nice to highlight the amount on the bill, and then highlight it AGAIN after swiping the credit card on the receipt's signature. In the end we tipped 25% but not due to the highlighting."

  • "Love to take out-of-towners to Parker's light House and sit outside on the deck. The food is always very good. The service can be hit or miss. This service was OK. But did have to ask for cocktail forks for oysters and mussel dishes when they should have come with the dishes. Overall it was a lovely early evening dining experience. My spicy shrimp and grits were great. The oysters and mussel dishes were great. When the weather is good, there is no better place for a scenic dining experience."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Had a lovely experience out with my family, which includes a 13-year old young man. He found several items on the adult menu worth considering and was very happy with his choice, as the rest of the adults were. We had an indoor table and the view was lovely. Our waiter, Doug was very friendly and helpful and made the dinner fun. Also, while the title of my review is "Fun family dinner," I can definitely see how this venue would serve itself well for a romantic evening (possibly a bit later in the evening), or also a nice group dinner (I noticed a private area that would work really well for groups)."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "My wife and I will never return to the Lighthouse. This is the 2nd time dining there and twice we have ordered the lobster only to get this"broiled" dish undercooked and "mealy"."

  • "Had a very enjoyable time food was excellent would recommend to friends"

    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I specifically ask three times if the salmon was pacific or atlantic. The server told me it was pacific, I mean who in the heck would eat atlantic salmon on the west coast. Of course, it gets there and it's crappy atlantic salmon that is so dry, I needed to chase it with water. I know, you're thinking why didn't I send it back. Well, the short answer is that I was with a very big client of mine and I didn't want to make him feel uncomfortable or have him eat his dinner alone whilst I waited for a replacement. So, I ate part of it. I'm pretty annoyed by the whole deal. If (as a server) you don't know whether it is pacific or Atlantic, then go ask. If you who are wondering what the difference is, pacific is wild, Atlantic is farm raised."

  • "Parker's has always been my "Ace in the hole" restaurant. I know that they will always come through with great food, great service, and perfect ambience. I am starting to biring more clients here even though I'd like to keep it as my private dining oasis, but I also want to make sure that this restaurant will stay in business for as long as I can dine there. The food is always prepared perfectly and you cannot beat the beautiful Long Beach scenery. Best deal in all of LA for what is offered. Fish is always fresh and the options are plentiful."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We were here once in winter and were not impressed. My husband does not like fish, so his review would be different. My experience this time was excellent. The sea bass was delicious as were the veggies that came with it. The service was great. We probably won't go back, though, because of the lack of choices for my non fish eating husband."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We chose to have dinner here on our 40th anniversary and was very disappointed. I notified them of the occasion when I reserved on line and they didn't do anything, not even a congratulations. The food wasn't great. My husband ordered calamari and it was very chewy. Our meal was rushed through and then we were out the door.Would not recommend especially for a special occasion."

  • "We had a party of 5 for a 75th Birthday celebration, the ambience was fantastic. Relaxed quiet atmosphere. Waiters were very prompt in waiting/serving our group. Servers are cordial. The Chilean Sea Bass was excellent(our favorite) we come for lunch and request the Chilean Sea Bass. Appetizers are excellent ..good variety of choices. This is a beautiful place to bring guest from out of town to experience the view whether you are inside near the window or outside on a beautiful day. Everyone can relax and have a great conversation without interruptions of noise."

  • "I am 66 and have never experienced the rudeness and sarcasm of a Manager as my party of 4 went through on Sunday evening. We were prepared for a great evening celebrating the birthday of my lady and her 57th birthday. Since this was not our first time here and we have taken several of our friends to dinner at this restaurant we used to think of Parkers as one of our favorites. No longer as this Manager made sure we understood they are only about the profits and not customer satisfaction. He should be fired. Needless to say we left without eating our dinner and had dinner around the corner at a restaurant who liked having our business."

  • "I have been all over Long Beach to almost every restaurant. Parker's Lighthouse has it ALL. A beautiful view, friendly staff, huge wine list, and most of all, the best food I have had in Long Beach. We brought a party of 11 including a 2 year old. Even though we had made a reservation for 8, I was able to call and easily change it to 11. They accommodated our request of being outside and were so helpful and friendly even when we had to push our reservation because we were running late. So happy that we chose this spot for our fun day with friends in Long Beach."

  • "Very nice menu. Great views with sheltered outdoor seating and very good service. However I made the mistake of thinking this was a lighthouse that had been converted into a restaurant, and it is a restaurant that has been custom built as a lighthouse - more gimmick than authentic. Nonetheless it is a very nice restaurant"

  • "One of my favorite spots for lunch! The food is spectacular and the service is beyond amazing. Food is perfectly priced and always cooked to perfection. I made my coworkers commit to going a week prior to the visit so I could get excited. Lol if you're in the area, its a must try. The view is breathtaking! Hands down 5 stars."
