Dining is an experience and that is what this was. The food was amazing. We were there for lunch. I will be taking this experience again. Next time will be dinner.

The food was delicious. Our drinks took 20 minutes to arrive but other than that everything was great.

One of my worst meals out in recent history. The bartender was simply rude, insanely slow, and overall seemed under qualified to be in her position. The host was also not welcoming. My food was not prepared properly, my poached egg was hard boiled and needed to be remade. Received the coffee I ordered when I sat down, at the end on my meal. I used to love this place, sad to see it has fallen so terribly. I would have had a better “brunch” from McDonalds today.

My date and I ordered the Crispy Brussel Spouts for an appetizer. We loved those. The amount just right. As an entree, we shared the Smokehouse Plate with two sides, asparagus, and mac-n cheese. The sides were delicious but the meats were not to my taste. The ribs had a nice seasoning but dry and tough. The brisket was super tender but lacked flavor.

The staff were all super. No complaints with the service.

I'd avoid being seated next to the garage doors if it is cold out. It is drafty on the backside.

Gouda grit fritters were good BUT, if they were a little spicier they would be awesome. Add some jalapeños.
Did not get gloves to peel my shrimp. Gumbo was very good, could have been spicier . Good experience overall.

My husband and I had dinner here for our anniversary. We enjoyed the food, ambience and service. Everyone from the front door to the bus boy was polite and helpful beyond. The service was impeccable. We will definitely be going back. So many great food choices. Delicious food served to us in record time. We were amazed.

We went for their valentines set 4 course menu and it was absolutely AMAZING. I have been here multiple times and every time they have great service and food. I love the atmosphere and decor it’s all very high end but at affordable dining prices! We always come here for any kind of special occasion or celebration

My boyfriend and I made a reservation for Valentine’s day. When we got there, they just now showed us the valentine’s day special menu. When making the reservation, they did not notify me of the limited menu that they would have on Valentine’s day. There were only a few options and the food was very scarce. We paid $55 for a four course meal, but the appetizer was one small cracker with avacado on it. The other option was ONE grits ball. Although delicious, it was small and not worth the price. The main entrees were disgusting and the service was terrible. My boyfriend and I were very very disappointed.

Worst Valentines dinner ever! We were looking forward to having a nice seafood dinner at Parkside district for the first time. When I made the reservations I was not informed there would be a Pre Fixed menu to choose from. We got our salads served to us with no dressing. We had to wait at least 10 minutes to finally see our waiter to get the dressing. That was the last time we saw him until we got the bill. We got one tea refill, because a bus boy refilled our drinks, and our teas came back with zero ice in them. I don’t know what our waiter was doing, it was not that busy. After we finished our meal we waited about 20 minutes with empty drinks until our 8 year old yelled at another busboy to get the check. I’m too polite for that normally, but I wasn’t mad at him, because it worked. For $55 a person for food I wouldn’t have chosen along with the worst service I have had in years it was a Valentine’s Day nightmare. We ordered a piece of Salmon for our son due to only having two kids choices and refusing to pay $55 for an 8 year old. They charged us $16.95, no sides, just a small kids piece of Salmon. $150 wasted on what was supposed to be a great night to splurge and enjoy the family.

The prefix menu for Valentines was disappointing and not up to standards from what we have come to expect from Parkside. Wish we had been told about the menu at the tiMe of our reservation not once we arrived at the restaurant. We look forward to coming back to enjoy the
Menu and level of experience we are used to

My wife and I had reservations for 2:45 and arrived on time. We place our food order shortly after arrive around 3pm but our food did not arrive at our table until after 4pm. When our food arrived my wife’s food was not cook completely through.

The food was great. The service was just ok. They gave our appetizers to the table next to us. Because of that, the rest of our meal was slow getting out. All in all, it’s a great place for adult dining and conversation-not a place to take kids.

Only my second visit and it wasn't anywhere close to the first impression they gave me. My food quality was not as good or fresh. Fish and shrimp seemed overcooked as if the cooking oil was not fresh, crab cake was smaller than the first time, mac 'n cheese had not flavor. The appetizers were the BEST thing we had!

My seak and Mac n cheese was delicous. Our calamari at the bar was a wonderful experience. The table service was awful, the server took our order and never returned until she delivered the check. We had to ask other servers for boxes and another dressing. My wife became ill all night from the seafood platter. I will return to hang out at the bar and for the mac n cheese. We will not go back to sit at a table. Worse table service ever!!

Very disappointed. My wife & I went for 33 year wedding anniversary. We’d heard last year that Parkside was good & made reservations a couple of days ahead of time & looked forward to a nice evening. We were seated at a nice table within 5 minutes of arrival. We waited at least 15 minutes before our server arrived & apologized, & said he wasn’t aware he was assigned our table. We understood & proceeded to order, still excited for a nice evening meal. Calamari appetizer was delicious but then it took forever for our meal to arrive. We noticed a family sitting in the booth beside us who came before us were still waiting as well. We finally received our meal & my “medium” NY strip was well done. Not wanting to complain, I cut the steak & ate it but turned it around so that our server could see the steak if he desired. He asked how it was & I said it was fine because I don’t send food back. I noticed that the family beside us didn’t receive their food for another 10 minutes. I noticed they sent the food back fairly quickly one received & asked for a manager. I observed the manager apologizing to them for the service & appeared to blame a large party in a private room at the front of the restaurant. The family continued to wait, it appeared they were more patient than I would have been & were still waiting for their food when I sent my 1/2 eaten well done steak back & asked for the check. My wife said her shrimp & grits were good but she could not enjoy knowing my steak was not enjoyable & the slow service we’d received. We felt it generous to leave a reasonable tip & not complain considering there would likely be a lot of complaints that evening. We will not recommend the restaurant to anyone nor will we be back. Very dissatisfied.

Very bad servers, me and my girlfriend were sitting down 10 minutes before anyone greeted us, then we had to ask who our server was. Once we got our food the server didn’t bring the proper utensils needed, the drinks and food came at the same time. Then when we left the establishment we go outside to see someone threw confetti and party favors all on our car and all the host could say was she didn’t see anything.

Service was good and food was good. BUT, I was accused of not showing up for my reservation so that did not sit well with me. In addition, the food score at this restaurant was 82. I would not have selected this restaurant had I known this ahead of time.
