My husband and I were so looking forward to this restaurant. We were sooo disappointed. We reserved a table but didn't get seated for 30 mins. The girls at check in were inundated and didn't seem to know if they were coming or going. The food was terrible, overcooked seafood and undercooked rice. Salad had old lettuce and too much dressing. No oysters Rockefeller, boo.... we don't mind spending money on a great dinner but $120 for what we got was terrible. We did tip our servers very well, over 20% because they were fabulous. Very attentive, super sweet, knowledgeable, on top of their game, and worked well with each other. I know It was a busy weekend, but food should have still been better. Price doesn't change for crowds, neither should quality.

Haven't been here in years and a bit disappointed this time. Food was okay - but my husband couldn't even eat his Fish & Chips (which he loves). My food was great. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary and I asked for a window table - although we got one it was very close to a long table full of loud talkers. Not the dinner I was hoping for. We may try again for lunch the next time.

this was my second experience at this restaurant. the service was very good... but unfortunately the food was again lackluster. when the manager checked in with our table, he was a little adversarial when we said the food was boring. I won't be back

This was a Long Beach favourite for us 18 months ago but not any more. Menu has been downgraded but poor quality of meals on offer was worse. Both steak and lobster were dry and tasteless. Crab cakes mushy and generic vegetables slopped on the plate. Immediately cancelled another upcoming reservation I had made. Off our go to list!

Don't be turned off by how you are greeted once you get beyond the hostess you will feel welcome. Oh and make sure you all arrive at the same time or she will banish your guests (who arrived slightly early) to outside or the bar to wait for you.

We went to Parkers' Lighthouse on our last night in Long Beach and it was festive. We overlooked the water with a view of the Queen Mary. We started with the cheese bread - don't miss it! Then we split two Parker's special appetizers for six people. Entrees were fine all around. The grilled shrimp was super good.

They were very accommodating when we wanted to move tables after we were already seated and had our drinks to a more shaded table on the patio. Food was delicious although too much olive oil in the seafood scampi.

Yes, she ate the whole lobster.

Missed "crab stuffed shrimp" on the menu, but fish and chips were great.
Thank you to staff for working Christmas Eve.

We enjoyed our time at Parker’s Lighthouse.
Food was good except our requests for no cucumber in the sushi wasn’t fulfilled. Also, one guest was down to her last bite and had a hair in a sushi roll.
Service was good but the wait staff seemed to be lacking a wait assistant as we were always asking our waiter for water refills.
Can’t beat the location with views of the Queen Mary and the shoreline of Long Beach.
Watch out for parking costs even with validation.

The food, as always, was excellent.

My family visits this restaurant often and we’ve never had a negative experience until recently. I scheduled a 3:30pm reservation for 4 on the patio for my grandparents joint birthday dinner. We arrived on time and were taken to a table off in the corner by the exit with no heater, no view and with plenty of empty tables around. We asked to move and were told the empty tables were reserved for 4pm reservations. Again we asked to be moved, they obliged. We enjoyed an hour long dinner, to our surprise, the surrounding tables remained empty for the entirety of our dinner and were still empty as we were leaving...

Our server, Edward, had excellent knowledge of the menu but was very rushed with our service. He gave barely enough time for my grandmother to browse the menu before returning again asking for her order a 3rd time.

As a celebratory dinner dedicated to my grandparents, I was very disappointed with the service we received. Treated as less than and rushed to leave. With a history in restaurant experience & dining, I expected better service because I would’ve have given better service.

The food at Parker's Lighthouse has been wonderful at every opportunity we've had to visit. Yesterday was no exception, but the occasion made it even more special. We were celebrating a double birthday - our 15 year old grandson and his #!% year old grandpa (my spouse). I mentioned the occasion when I made the reservation and the lunch could not have been more perfect. We sat outside overlooking the harbor (our grandson chose). The birthday boys had poke and fish and chips, and I had the fried shrimp (the best I've had in Southern California). The young man who served us was very attentive and pleasant. We had a wonderful, leisurely lunch. As we finished, we were presented with two birthday deserts, complete with candles for the birthday boys to blow out. Really the perfect end to a perfect afternoon. We all had a wonderful time and we will return - birthdays or not.

Second time I come here and the service is terrible. Angel was my server. He was terrible. Greg ended up replacing him. Greg was good. By the time Greg took over the damage was done. Waited forever for drinks, more bread and just to bring water to the table.

This was my second bad experience. I won't come back and I won't recommend you. In fact, I should write a review in Yelp so others don't have to have the same poor experience.

I don't know what happend with you guys. I've been coming here for years and suddenly you became terrible.
