The piece of fish was small and for $45 it was a bit underwhelming.

Everything was great! Only thing is be sure if you go during happy hour m-f from 3-6 make sure you sit at the bar or lounge area it’s the only way you get the happy hour prices and it had a different menu with amazaaaaing chowder fries!

All the food tasted great. The mango mojito was delicious. We got a spot by the window looking towards the bay. Their tables were arranged well, it didn't feel crowded.

This a wonderful place for lunch. The service was terrific and the food was soooo good. I had the special surf & turf (beef tips and seafood over pasta) and it was to die for. Melt in your mouth and packed with flavor.

For obvious reasons the ambiance at Parkers has changed a bit. The menu is getting better and closer to pre-pandemic choices. The service is always very good an the food - considering your somewhat limited choices - is very good as well. I trust as we move further into the summer this will, again, be an excellent choice when looking to eat on the waterfront.

Edward our server/waiter had many tables to take care of but provided us with excellent customer service. Always had a smile on his face and was very attentive. It also helped that he had help with other staff members bringing out the food and drinks. I’m so happy Parker’s lighthouse is open and survived the Pandemic. The food was excellent and drinks on point. I will definitely be coming back!!!!!
Thank you for such wonderful service from beginning to end

Mother’s Day lunch was very nice, the prices could be slightly more reasonable on some items or the portions a little bigger. The food was great and the atmosphere was lovely. Our service was wonderful. I will be looking forward to my next visit.

Unbeatable view and location eating out on the patio. Service was spectacular and on par with what I expected from Parker’s. Menu was a bit limited. Half of it was sushi. Ordered the Mother’s Day stroganoff that was creamy and cooked just right. Mixed grill had nice flavor but slightly over cooked. Overall I’d go back for a special occasion

Made reservations to coincide with enjoying the outdoors and the sunset. Our waiter, Mario, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Had several suggestions of items on the menu. We even traded off ideas on recipes! This restaurant needs to bring back the oysters Rockefeller and the bar needs to learn how to make rum runners! And if you’re coming to this restaurant on a Friday Saturday or Sunday, be prepared to park a long ways away in a public a lot because the lots near the restaurants and shops are jampacked!

Great place to eat by the water. Went for the Mother’s Day weekend and the staff was more than capable to handle the big crowd. Would highly recommend. Took my family of 4 and the kids loved it.

Outstanding service and good food. Wine list was comprehensive with some good wine and decent values. Our last minute Open Table reservation allowed us to get seated right away even though there was a line outside. Great window view of the harbor.

The wait staff was mostly attentive, but did seem a bit stretched thin. The food was extremely overpriced and too salty to enjoy. We had incredibly loud parties on either side of us on the patio, and the overhead fluorescent lights created anything but a romantic ambiance. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't romantic. And it certainly was not worth the price. $40 stroganoff and a $19 sushi roll that came to the table sitting in a pool of soy sauce. Very odd, and not in a positive way. We left feeling very disappointed.

The front of the house staff was unfriendly. Set the the tone for a rough night. They seemed bothered by my request for a new table and were not accommodating. A more welcoming atmosphere would have made for a better overall experience.

The lobster club sandwich was disappointing. Instead of a solid/shredded lobster tail, it is served with lobster salad (think tuna salad). I only ate half. The side of french fries that came with it was good.

We visited for lunch. We ordered Oysters and some sushi rolls. The Oysters were presented poorly. The food was ok. The one thing I will say is the inside is spotless.

Sat outside to enjoy the harbor view, very nice. But it was chilly and by the time they finally found a heater that had propane in it, we were done with our meal. The food was good, ample portion sizes, but got cold very fast being outside. Service was ok, very slow and didn’t check in with us to see if we needed anything after serving the food. But very nice, friendly servers. Clam chowder was excellent as were the drinks! 😁

The staff was helpful and provided excellent service even though I visited on a Sunday and they were super busy! We sat on the back patio and the tables were far apart (more so than many other restaurants) which made me feel very comfortable. Our server (Danny) was nice and polite and made great dish suggestions. The food was excellent! Overall eating here is a great experience. We will be back as often as possible!

Horrible service. Got the drink order wrong for my friend’s drink...then (after we all waited for a very long time for our meal, and waiter’s attention. He forgot one of our meals. Fortunately the rest of us ate while our food was hot, but we had to wait for her to eat when they finally finished making and brought out her meal. As the server was so disinterested in our comfort and enjoyment it took a while to bring this glaring error to his attention.
The waiter had given us a price for the fresh catch...when we (finally) got the bill we discovered the fish was $6.00 more than we were told. It took so long to get through the meal and pay for it and WAIT (yet again) for the waiter to bring back the receipt, we never even said anything to him. It was obvious he didn’t care anyway. We just wanted to get out of there. The waiter wasted quite a lot of our time (and our evening).

I enjoyed the new menu items like the lobster and shrimp taquitos. I would make a small suggestion on those to use a thinner corn tortilla so the flavor of the lobster and shrimp are the stars. Food is good!
