Due to the current health situation, please know we will do our very best to accommodate your requests but cannot guarantee specific seating.

Come by after exploring the Aquarium of the Pacific, or join us for lunch in between meetings at the Long Beach Convention Center - we are within walking distance of both. Parkers’ Lighthouse is also only a short drive from other local attractions like The Queen Mary and Terrace Theater.

Whether you're in the mood for fresh sushi, our signature mesquite-grilled fresh fish or oysters on the half shell, our extensive menu highlights the many flavors that inspire Southern Californian cuisine.

Parker's Lighthouse in Long Beach offers stellar water views. The place is a 'date place' or impress your boss place. A little pricey. The Bento box had high quality items!

Thanksgiving Dinner November 25, 2021. At $72.00 per person, I got "Pressed Turkey" and my husband got steak loaded with "FAT". No "Punkin Pie" for dessert but Punkin Cheese Cake instead.

We've eaten at Parkers Lighthouse before and enjoyed our meal. But Thanksgiving was a complete "Disappointment".

All within 10 minutes of being seated: asked for flat and sparkling water. Not in stock. Fruit fly in husband's drink and bad milk given to my son. We spoke with the general manager who was defensive. Gave an excuse about supply chain issues as a reason for no bottled water (that problem is an easy fix. Get the water you can from another vendor or a market). At a restaurant that is suppose to be highend, not having bottled water is ridiculous. The general manager has horrible hospitality training. We left due to the general manager's bad customer service and overall attitude. My husband is a VP of a company and has a degree in Business Management and Marketing. We usually spend a lot of money when we dine there. This manager failed to keep us as customers.

Our anniversary dinner at Parker’s was lovely. Our server was Simon and he knew everything about the menu and was super personable and attentive. I know the restaurant industry is struggling with being under staffed, but at Parker’s, you would never know. It was a beautiful evening.

Nice restaurant with excellent food. The restaurant has very interesting architecture. We had a table next to the window which had an excellent view of Long Beach. Next time we will try for the Queen Mary view. The only disappointments were the shrimp cocktail only had 4 shrimps in it. And the $15 beers looked like they could fit into champagne glasses.

It was amazing, we had to move to the front patio for the happy hour prices but it was worth it. Our server (Danielle C. ) was spectacular and the food was terrific. But the standout was definitely Danielle, so attentive and made our dinner amazing. Thank you. We ordered the garlic cheesy bread, corn chowder, 1/2 oysters and fish and chips. Delicious.

Very loud noise from reconstruction work in the restaurant: buzz saws, pounding, hammering, etc. Service very very slow. People talking. Almost yelling above the workers' noise. .

Food, while expensive, is still good as is the dining service.

However, the restaurant is undergoing renovation in the bar area but is open while workers are running tile saws, hammering, etc. When we arrived at opening for lunch, we asked the hostess if the saws would keep running while folks are dining and she said yes…as punishment I guess for us inquiring about the construction noise inside the restaurant, she assigned us to a table next to the tile work (but we immediately requested to move to one of the many open tables away from the work). There are no curtains or partitions separating the work area from dining, so the dining area gets a little dusty. Servers were struggling a bit with the challenging working conditions but did their best.

Not sure why Parker’s chose to wait until after the lockdown to start renovations or why sawing and hammering work cannot be restricted to pre opening hours. Given the poor management decisions, we will not be returning until all of the renovation is completed.

Queen’s View upstairs appears to have tarps around many of the windows blocking the view, so that’s not really a great option either.

Disappointed that one of our favorite restaurants is in this state, but it will motivate us to find some new favorites.

The restaurant never fails to meet our expectations on the food and the view. Outstanding. And we typically have very good service. Our server for this lunch seemed to be relatively new as we were a little disappointed in the server's lack of comprehension on what was ordered and the relatively poor follow up.

But, we'll still be back. Really like this place.

Restaurant was under construction. This made an impact on our experience. We had a 5:30pm reservation and waited 15 minutes for our table. I’d think with an early reservation you pups have a table ready, but that wasn’t the case. Anyway, if I’m going to a restaurant that charges $45 for sea bass I want a nice table and nice ambiance. I probably won’t go back.
