Great food, service, and company. We enjoyed all our meals.
Great, we love to hear this. Thank you for letting us know and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
We always enjoy Parker's but were very disappointed that they don't offer their famous maple cotton candy right now. Also, their wines are very limited and pricey, but we bought a bottle anyway.
We appreciate the information and thank you for understanding as we are adjusting weekly. We hope to see it again soon as well.
Very good we thought the menu didn’t match website and wanted crab legs .
Hmmmm, we update the menu daily and we constantly upload the new menus for our most recent changes. We will for sure look into this. Thank you.
Thank you! So happy you enjoyed your dinner.
The food was delicious, fresh soft shell crabs! A lovely dining experience, it was a relaxing visit with a good friend!
Wonderful, so happy you were able to enjoy that most sought after special. We plan to offer it again in the near future.
Ok Will be coming back
Great, we look forward to seeing you soon.
Wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Great food!!
Wonderful, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your evening.
One of our favorite places to dine. Always great food. So glad they survived the past year!
We are too and so happy to be back and ready to enjoy the summer together.
We were very pleased with our meal. Our server was excellent and the food was great.
Thank you for the words and so happy to hear you enjoyed your dinner.
After delivering our 1st drink order we did not see anyone for more than 45 minutes. We asked for more bread 3x, never got it. Food was delicious.
Our overall experience was really great. Seated at our reserved time, good service and excellent food. If the noise volume could be turned down, it would be 100% great.
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your night out. We can always adjust the music volume if that was a contributor.
We went to Parker's for my birthday. Recently, we've been to Capital Grille & Gibson's. Parkers' was comparable for my buck. Kudos!
We are thrilled you celebrated your special day with us. Hope to see you back soon.
There for birthday... One our favorite places. Unfortunately, no live music due to Covid. Food,service and ambience all excellent. Could feature a few more fish choices on menu.
Live music on Friday and Saturday’s, we hope to add more soon. Keep an eye out on social media and our website.
Always a favorite of mine. Great staff, great food and oysters!
Thank you. We are so happy to be back!
Parker’s is one of my favorite restaurants. The quality and preparation of the food, especially the seafood is excellent. We enjoyed Mahi Mahi, Salmon, & Bouillabaisse. Parker’s maintains an extensive wine list.
Tables were well spaced. Servers wore masks. A separate printed paper menu was on our table to share.
My only disappointment was service was not up to its high standards. Our server & her assistant had many tables to care for, one being a table of 7. The deliciousness of our dinners made up for this.
Thank you so much for the feedback, we appreciate you noticing the efforts of our team. We always strive to improve every shift. So happy you enjoyed your meal.
I always enjoy eating at Parkers. Nice atmosphere & good food.
Thank you, it feels so good to be back and seeing familiar and happy guests.
We celebrated our 20th anniversary at Parkers (got engaged there too) and we had the most wonderful experience. From the staff who greeted us upon arrival, to our wonderful waitress and the most thoughtful surprise dessert, we felt so celebrated. Food was outstanding and we felt very safe with how the tables were set and the precautions the staff took. Can’t wait to go back.
It was so much fun hearing about your special day and exactly the spots it happened. Thank you for sharing with all of us. Oh, and we loved your surprise gift too. Congratulations you two!!
first time since the pandemic. covid protocol in place. felt very safe as tables spread out. food was excellent as always.
Our dinners were excellent - cedar-planked whitefish and scallops. Our waiter, Aaron, was the best. The noise level was a little high, but we felt comfortable that our conversation could not be overheard, so that was fine. It was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you, Parkers!
Date night...the restaurant was a little behind for our reservation, but the hostess kept us updated as to when our table would be ready. They cleared a bar table for us so we could sit and have a drink while we waited. It was hard to hear each other in the bar. Our waitress was great - friendly and efficient. We were able to sub preferred veggies with our meal, and the food was fantastic! Overall a great night out, so happy to dine at Parker’s again!
Great to see a great restaurant with tables full and a fun atmosphere. Food as always was great, whitefish was a hit with three of us.
Getting back to normal. The service was a bit slower than prior to pandemic, most likely because of the demand rising again so quickly before staffing could keep up.
Not quite up to previous standards. The lobster fettuccini was dry & not sure about the freshness of the lobster. The lamb chops were excellent, though.
I was concerned about the density of people in the lobby not much social distancing being practiced!
This is an excellent restaurant in every way. Great place for special occasions. Food is fantastic but is on the expensive side. Will continue to go there.
Impressive. The food was amazing. I’ll be back for the chowder, to go!!
Thank you for the message, and we are so happy you enjoyed your dinner. Call us anytime for a take out order.
We have always enjoyed dining at Parker's - the food and service is generally very good and we always recommend this place to others. We have noticed that the pricing versus the portions are a little out of whack. You are getting less for more money which is not uncommon during difficult times....unfortunately we won't be able to dine at Parker's as often as we used to. I wish them great success and glad they reopened.
Carmen Stokes on piano is a Downers Grove gem. Our favorite thing to do Friday or Saturday night is to sit in the bar with great food and cocktails with Carmen. Tim is also a top notch waiter!
We could not agree more, we are so fortunate to have Carmen on the weekends. It’s such a good feeling to have the familiar faces and sounds as guests return. See you Friday :)
Parkers is a wonderful restaurant and the fact that they do a great job of maintaining social distancing makes it even better. Try the butter cake for desert
We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit. We agree, the butter cake is amazing!
Food was excellent at Parker's Grill! The service was substandard. Appetizers delivered without plates to serve it. Waiting 30 minutes to receive bottle of wine. Seemed the server was either spread too thin or was very new. Either way, it definitely affected our experience.
We had a wonderful evening: we felt safe, tables were appropriately distanced, food was excellent and the service outstanding! There was a doubter in the group who became a convert!
Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us. Excellent, we have a new fan!
Excellent atmosphere fir special occasions. High quality service & food. Can’t wait to return!
Thank you so much, wonderful to hear. Looking forward to your next visit too.
After a long shut down due to covid,
Parkers is back. Oyster happy hour was excellent followed by dinner in the well spaced dining room. Menu was familiar and well prepared. Service was as expected. Great experience.
We are just as excited to have you back, thank you so much for spending your night with us.
Consistently great experience. Food, service and ambiance are all excellent.
My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at Parkers'. While waiting for our table to be made ready after our arrival (we arrived ahead of our reservation time), we had a drink in the bar where a pianist/soloist was performing. Her vocals and song selection were so impressive that we decided to remain in the bar for dinner. As usual, the food and service were outstanding. We highly recommend Parkers' for those interested in a quality dining experience.
Everything was awesome.
Marianna was very customer focused and provided a very nice experience. Food and ambiance always nice.
Birthday and get together.
Very nice Wednesday evening at Parker’s. Both couples have been there before and all 4 of us were happy with the food and the service. The menu was a bit limited to what I was used to prior to the pandemic. Missing was my favorite braised beef short rib.
The wine by the glass list was rather short also. But the atmosphere was great and it was wonderful to get back to dinning out again.
Great seafood and exceptional service!
Parker’s never fails to deliver. Great food, service and ambiance!
