Great Sunday brunch. Excellent food selection and it was all prepared very well. Atmosphere was upscale yet casual and comfortable.

Sorry, but would not recommend. We went for our Anniversary, because we wanted to try something different. Service was awful. 15 minutes before the waitress even came to the table for drinks. Another 15+ after we were done waiting for waitress to come to get the check. Food was average at best, and therefore not worth the price. Do yourself a favor and give Firebirds in Mason a try, or Ruth Chris downtown. The food is far superior. Service always good, and they make a nice surprise for birthday’s and anniversaries with free personalized dessert.

Service and food were both excellent. Beer and wine prices were way too pricey. Fretboard Pilsner was $7.50 for pint. It is $6 for 22 oz at their brewery. I understand markup...but $5 for a Coors Light? Otherwise a great night with a fun atmosphere.

3 out of the 4 of us ordered the prime rib after being told it was a specialty of theirs. It was a very poor cut of beef and very fatty and tough. We told our waiter Gus who apologized and immediately went to speak to the manager. He came back to the table to let us know it was being taken off of our bill. We appreciated the way this was handled and will gladly give them another try. Gus was an excellent server.

We live Parker Grill and it is a convenient location. We had crab cakes at our last visit and were disappointed to not see them on the menu. They had large chunks of crab and were delicious. They may bring them back but only as a special. We would like to see them on the menu. The salmon and trout entrees were delicious and for an up charge anchovies are available on the Caesar salad. Our waiter was friendly helpful and efficient

Parkers generally has had good reviews. This occasion was less than we expected. The guests went to Parkers for an after-office-hours dinner with a couple of VIPs visiting from France. The service was not the upper class service we were expecting and the orders were brought to us in an untimely manner and with a couple of errors. I understand errors occur sometimes but it is a bit of a poor reflection on us when we are wanting to provide an experience to our guests that is remembered as an excellent one.

For a place that's packed at night, I was surprised it wasn't very busy. Most especially since Open Table said the earliest reservation I could make was 1:30. You could shoot a cannon through at 11:45 and not hit anyone. Most of the food was good. I enjoyed the shrimp the most. The cocktail sauce is nice and horseradishy.

Crab cakes were full of big pieces of crab and very tasty. The roast prime was a large piece and cooked rare just the way I love it. The chocolate flourless cake was a perfect sweet to share with my husband. He devoured his trout as well as half of my crab cake. The service was perfect.

Service was excellent from our servers to the gentleman that carved the prime rib. We were made to feel like valued guests and we all appreciated the service. My niece was here from D.C. and she pays close attention to detail. We were all very happy.

Went for a birthday, mainly for prime rib. Service was very slow because of a couple of big parties. Food finally came and prime rib was well done (had ordered medium rare). Accepted order of ribeye steak as they were out of edible prime rib. Too rare to eat when finally served. Total bust of a night at normally reliable Parkers. Good appy and dessert!
Manager talked us down off the ceiling. We'll be back, but it'll take awhile.

My husband and I tried Parker’s based on reviews and decided to make a reservation for Restaurant Week. We were seated right away and our server was spectacular. He was attentive without being too pushy. We tried the fixed menu of croquettes and crab cake as appetizers. Both were well seasoned and flavorful. My husband would have preferred the sauce on the side as many Europeans do. We ordered the prime rib special. Both were made to our specifications. I especially appreciated the specificity of how to order the meat: “blue” (seared); “Pittsburgh” (red), medium rare, medium (pink), well done. We both loved the creme brûlée cheesecake and the chocolate ganache cake. It was just enough to end a wonderful meal.

We will be returning!

Enjoyed going for lunch, and bar for many years. Brought my daughter recently for special outing and I was greatly disappointed in SUNDAY BRUNCH! Although the servers were attentive and friendly, the food was not good. Prime Rib was overcooked (tried twice)...not even pink on it, and chewy. ?? Other foods were pretty average and the Seafood Alfredo had bones in the salmon.
Thought this was going to be something special, but sadly...no.

Went for Sunday Brunch, lots of extremely tasty and fresh options! Was very impressed by the quality of the food, and the friendliness of the staff, who made sure to check on us often (we tried lots of different juices!). Great for brunch, but also super tasty dinners, just fyi.

It was kind of loud, but that was because they were packed because their food is great. This is picky but, this is the only place I can get a burger medium-rare and my wife can get her's well done. Their burgers are out-of-this-world. I also love their prime rib. I do like the music when we can eat in the bar when it's just us two.

Parker's food and service are always great. It's a beautiful place, with a horse-racing themed lodge atmosphere. They have a big bar with casual live music, but separate dining rooms that are pretty quiet.

It was a party of 6 to celebrate a birthday. Generally, the food was very good but seemed a bit overpriced. Portion sizes were a bit smaller than expected and one of the filets was significantly undercooked. Service was good and the menu offered many good options.

On a quiet Tuesday night we were seated next to a group of 10, loud and chatty, which made it difficult to hear our conversations. Once this party left, everything was good. Food good, a little pricey. Service was slow at the beginning, but then our server was great. Will definitely go back again
