Dined @4:30 on a Sunday PM after the brunch buffet was over. Hadn't been there for many years and found it to be a pleasant surprise especially since there were very customers @ such an early dinner hour. Food and service were both very good.

Excellent restaurant. Love the décor. Service was just a bit slow, but not a big deal. Usually it is not. Crab cake appetizers (not always on the main menu, usually as a special) are excellent and the filet mignon and prime rib always vie for the best on the menu.

We've been to Parker's several times in the past, but this was our first time back in a few years. Unfortunately, this trip did not live up to past experiences. From a large piece of fat/gristle in a filet, to special requests in orders being forgotten, the dinner was okay - but certainly not great for the premium price.

Unfortunately, this was an underwhelming experience. The service was awkward but efficient. The food was good but not great. Neither my wife or I particularly enjoyed our meals, the short rib and the ribeye. My risotto was still grainy and definitely not the creamy consistency that I would hope for. Parker's presents themselves as upscale casual dining but I think the overall experience is uninspired and blasé. The building itself is very nice. I would be happy to try again for their Sunday brunch, but I don't think I would recommend returning for dinner.

I have gone to Parkers many times in the past but was disappointed on Valentines Day when I sat down and saw it was a limited menu. And the limited menu was beef or sea food. No chicken entree to choose. I do not eat sea food and wasn't interested in the high price Filet. I was just surprised that something as widely eaten as Chicken and which would be a more affordable choice was not one of the offerings.

Will double check next time on a special day.

Our waitress (Peg?) was excellent. The beginning service was spot on...the main course was a bit slow. Obviously the kitchen was overwhelmed. The food was just as ordered and hot (or cold) as required. The western/horse racing theme wasn't what we expected, however it was tastefully decorated.

Prices are on the higher end so I would expect high quality food and service. Some of the food was great- some was cold. By the time the server checked back, (very long time) the rest of the meal was eaten. The offer was to replace the cold food which was fine but the server seemed annoyed to have to box it to take home since all the meals were already eaten prior. Won’t be high on our list to return to unfortunately. We were hoping we found a great new eating spot!

I had the Sunday Brunch and it was delicious. As a vegetarian, I was disappointed there were not enough vegetables to choose from. And mash potatoes were missing. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would come back.

Liked the décor. Server did a nice job. Food delivery forgot steak knife, butter and sour creme. Server immediately had it brought out. Nice job, took a few extra minutes to get drinks server apologized, said bartender was a little backed up. Overall, I will definitely recommend. Need to try Sunday.

My friend and I met for dinner! It was wonderful at Parker's! I will tell you that the waiter (and I so wish I remembered his name) was incredible! We sat in the back near the fireplace!
He let us talk for a long time, waited on us with unlimited ice tea and coffee throughout the evening (which was long for us as we talked forever)!
The food was outstanding! It always is there!
Would highly recommend Parker's!

Really nice Sunday brunch in a city where we are lucky to have lots of places to choose from! The seafood choices were nicely presented..the seafood mac and cheese was delish! Lots of traditional brunchy food as well! Yum!

It was a very quaint place as this was our first time there. We were put in a very small 2 person booth. Crowded tables in the restaurant, but cozy. The server was very good. The food, we both had prime rib, was very good.
It is a nice night out.

Unfortunately we went on this Saturday evening 7:00 reservation looking for rare, and medium rare prime rib. Only well done left. I suspect they did not want to split the next roast. They picked up the entrees but it really was disappointing. I doubt we get a make up invite.

Steak was cooked perfectly! and worked with very well with the salad. Bar area and cocktails could use a little updating. There is a lot going on in the cocktail world and the bar keep didn't discuss, ask, present or really engage with us about choices, variations, new ideas.

Very average overpriced food. Seats in booth very uncomfortable. Decor is dated and in serious need of both cleaning and upgrade. Service was adequate, not friendly not great. Server was distant and seemed like he couldn't care less if we enjoyed our meal. Refills for our drinks were never offered. We did not receive food quality, portion size or service value that justified the prices charged. Too bad. This was once a nice place to dine.

Parkers has had a great menu for years. The bar would be great if they expanded into the west dining room especially when they have music, as for a freezing January Friday night, the bar was wall-to-wall including the bar seats ! It's quite pricey for a fish fry at $18.99 , but I really like it. The atmosphere with the horse racing game theme is comfortable and relaxing.

Great ambiance. Nice fireplace. Romantic. Music may need some mellowing ie Sinatra, etc.
Turn down volume also/ Filet Mignon was very good but don't expect their specialty they are noted for (prime rib) any more except on Fri and Sat - a big dissapointment! The bar area looked crowded, but we did not try it on this occasion.
