Unbelievable experience!
Wife and I met there 30 years ago, I was able to get a reservation on our anniversary day. The restaurant location is still strong in all possible ways. It showed us that in 3 decades it still has all the charm, beauty, and can provide the highest service level. Hats off to the chef, waiters, and all management as they shine now as they did 30 years ago.

Parkers' Lighthouse has always been our go-to for a special occasion dinner. The food is consistently tasty, the service always friendly and accommodating, and the ambiance vibrant but we are still able to maintain a conversation easily. Our server, Omar, was especially helpful with my plant-based request; while not on the menu, the restaurant can do a vegetable pasta, but Omar was able to provide me with a variety of delicious vegetables at my request. And we weren't charged a fortune for it like other restaurants have done. If you haven't been here yet, definitely give it a try. The views are worth it.

For a sat night this was pretty empty. It has got a great location. Perhaps needs some investment in making it more glitzy. Decor/Carpet pretty much everything within the restaurant looks dated.

A fabulous lunch with 2 friends. The oysters were fresh, the clam chowder was superb
and all the fish dishes were excellent. Danny the waiter was professional as well at the entire staff at Parker's Lighthouse. I will be back.

The location is excellent, the food was fantastic and the service was great, but there was a very loud party on the second floor that was way over the top that prevented the rest of us below to even hear ourselves think let alone hear anyone at the table talking to us. I think the manager should have either shut that part down or told them to keep the noise level down. That's my first and only complaint in coming to this location for the past 3 years.

The food was very good- no complaints. The service was also excellent. The biggest issue was that we were trying to catch up with some good friends of ours and the noise levels made that very hard to do.
I particularly was thrilled with the ribeye steak- delicious and full of flavor- as well as the Key Lime Pie. It was a nice restaurant with very good food- just a little hard to hear (especially for me since I wear hearing aids.)

Beautiful view, way too hot in their patio. The patio area was tented with a plastic tent and created a greenhouse effect. Was much hotter there without the nice sea breeze.

Perfect restaurant for a cousins reunion. Fantastic view, excellent service. My shrimp salad had way to much lettuce. French dip was salty. Everyone seemed to enjoy their lunch and we weren't rushed at all. Cannot remember our waiters name. He was young, terrific, very attentive and patient. Very good experience. Thank you Mr Parker!!

Parker's Lighthouse is a nice restaurant. A bit larger in size then I was expecting, which adds to the overall noise level. Ambiance was decent, but because of the shear size of the restaurant, you won't find it all that romantic. This is primarily a fish restaurant. If you want steak and chicken, go somewhere else. We ordered the Chilean Sea bass and Crispy skinned salmon. Both were prepared nicely and tasted great. The salmon topping was a little too forward flavored so scrapped most off. Sea Bass was wonderful, but thought the price was a little high. Overall, a nice experience, but expect to pay at least $200+ per couple for a bottle of wine, apps, and main course.

I know they recommend their sushi but it was not very good. I've had far better at many other restaurants. It's lively and fun but the food is average at best.

Our server was patient and went above and beyond to ensure my date got a great vegan meal. Great suggestion on the trip fruit sorbet too.
We were right by the window but we still enjoyed a great view. I had the grilled ahi while my date had the spinach ravioli. The food was smaller portions than we expected but very delicious.
We arrived early and enjoyed the shops in the village. Very beautiful and romantic.

I had a 7pm reservation for a window seat that was made a week in advance. I knew that being Valentines Day weekend that the special request may not be able to filled. We were seated about 15 minutes after the reservation time at an outdoor table. Although it was a chilly night, the heat lamps worked very well and we actually had a nice view of the Queen Mary across the waterway. Our server (Mike) was knowledgeable, friendly and made great food suggestions. The crispy skin salmon was very good as was the seafood linguine. The garlic cheese bread was also very good as a starter. If your desire is not to spend much money then choose another option because it's not cheap. With a starter, dinner for two , bottled water, one cocktail and one dessert the bill was $125.00. Parking validation is offered which lowers but doesn't totally eliminate the parking fee.

We had a reservation @ 6:30pm. Came in our 6:10pm and checked-in. We were told that we won’t be seated until close to our reserved time which was understandable. The lady I spoke to said they will text us once our table is ready. A little over 6:30pm already and I haven’t received any text yet. We were just waiting there @ the front and saw the other parties getting called that were checked-in after us. So I decided to ask the other lady at the front to follow-up and we were seated right away. I don’t know why they never called my name nor received any text. If I didn’t ask again we’ll just be standing there, waiting.

Excellent service, food and atmosphere! Price slightly high but its the area. Parking is awful so get there early if you have a reservation. Took us a half hour just to get through the parking. The opposite side of the street is for boat owners only but if you want to risk it on a busy day the locals told me you will only be fined and not towed.

We enjoyed a Valentines Day special on Feb 15. Which included one appettizer, two entrees and one dessert. The Calamari was outstanding, very crispy. Everything was so good that there was no need for a togo box. The cheesecake was so thick and delicious.

Made a reservation here for Valentine’s Day. I liked how they called me and reconfirm the reservation. This shows me they really care about their business. We ordered the oysters in the shell and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. Both were delicious! As an entrée my fiancé ordered the Chilean sea bass and I had the 11oz lobster tail. Again, both were delicious. For dessert I had the warm chocolate brownie custard a la mode and she had the butter cake a la mode. Both very good. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars across the board is because the appetizers were a little skimpy. We only got 3 oysters and 3 shrimp. I would think for a couple we would at the very least get 2 each. And it was $85 per person. Not a bad deal by any means. But again the appetizers were just a little skimpy. But everything was extremely flavorful, the view was great and the surrounding ambiance was perfect. We really want to come back when the full menu is available. Highly recommend this place.

When we first were seated we were informed there was only a Valentine's day menu. Why was this not on Parker's Lighthouse website to say this?! I looked on the website several times and not once did I see this advertised. I believe was intentional. However, if Crustaceans can give you the common courtesy to inform there was only a Valentine's Day menu, then Parker's could have. I ordered the filet mignon, medium well. The steak came back medium, if not closer to rare. I sent it back for it to come back still red. But, I said I would just take it home and microwave it. Lastly my mother ordered the butter cake, which was HARD, overcooked and cold! The ice cream refused to melt. The experience was not worth the $85! I understand the restaurant's view of having everything pre made because it's such a busy evening; however, if you're going to charge almost a $100 per plate no food should be cold! I normally never do surveys, but I was a little frustrated with this experience; partly because I was looking forward to a wonderful dining experience. The only reason I didn't give the overall experience a 1 was because our waiter was nice.
