Parkside is a locally owned and operated Downtown Raleigh Restaurant located at the entrance of the Warehouse District. Parkside is situated on the corner of West Martin and South Dawson streets across from historic Nash Square. It was this urban park, one of the four original parks in downtown that inspired the name Parkside.

Housed at street level and under the longest running neon restaurant sign in North Carolina you will find our doors, which have been the threshold to hospitality for this neighborhood for over one hundred years. Parkside believes in continuing this tradition in every way. From the warm red brick and reclaimed barn wood clad bar to the NC solid poplar tabletops, we want our guests to feel welcome. Whether you are sampling one of our 25+ beers on tap or enjoying our chef inspired locally sourced fare, your experience is our priority.

    I had the Prime Rib scramble. The steak was not fresh. It was old overcooked and tough. I was very disappointed. My hubby had the pork chop which was excellent.

    Went for Sunday brunch. I had the braised short rib Benedict and it was awesome. My husband had the breakfast burrito and really enjoyed that. I also had the mimosa flight. Service was a little slow (several other tables were waited on before our party of 4) but food tasted great.

    Was excited to try Parkside but after an hour of waiting it took 30 minutes ti get a drink order and after an hour of waiting to place our food order, decided to leave and have dinner at another restaurant. Lots of other really great options downtown that prioritize service.

    Parkside is our go-to; usually for brunch. But, dinner on Friday night didn't disappoint. Fish and chips, pomegranate gin/tonic, sirloin salad. Fresh, prompt, tasty. Had a great time and good food!

    For our anniversary lunch, my husband and I ordered the Parkside burger and the Prime Rib Burger. The flavor was fantastic. My husband’s tomato bisque was also good. I had a side of black-eyed peas that were uninteresting. Prices were average for 2024.

    We have visited this location at least 8 times, since relocating to North Carolina. The server was very unprofessional and uncaring about our food not coming hot. We were thankful to the Manager for accommodating us with a discount, but a little late.

    Our reservation was early, 4:30pm. We were basically in an empty restaurant when we sat down. Our server was attentive, explained the menu and we ordered. The meals came out lukewarm. Fries and potatoes were not hot, The Beef Stroganoff was not hot, and the green beans were crunchy and seemed uncooked on the entree salad. My 3 Star review is due to the food quality, and it not being hot. No real reason for this because the restaurant was almost empty. It was somewhat hard to find our server, and we didn't have time to send back our meals. Our second dining experience at Parkside with the same result. Who wants cold fries? Not me.

    We made reservations for lunch time and were seated promptly by the courteous hostess. Our server Emma was exceptional. She provided great menu selection guidance. The pork chop was the best we’ve had which was fried with a delicious batter. The Buffalo chicken Cobb salad was very good. Portions were very nice. Overall was a very good experience and will definitely be back

    It was so dark in the restaurant. It was hard to read the menu. The cocktails were good. We had the pomegranate, gin and tonics. We ordered the prime rib and the steak special. The meat was so tough you could not cut it without shaking the whole table and chewing it was difficult, I would not recommend this restaurant

    During my first visit to Parkside, the waiter recommended the fish and chips, which I ordered and loved. What stood out was that both the fish and chips were both excellent. Typically I find it’s great fish and so-so fries or vice-versa. So I ordered the same last night. I think they ran out of the fries and used frozen crinkle fires that weren’t even crispy as opposed to the crispy seasoned fries I had the first time. That was disappointing, but the fish was still great.

    Everything was just okay… the server was friendly, but not attentive. The menus were filthy and we were shown a table with no communication from our hostess when we sat down. The restaurant has a sports bar feel to it and can get loud at times. The food was just okay. Nothing great, but not terrible. Would I recommend Parkside? Maybe for lunch or brunch if you’re a twenty something. Not a dinner spot from my own personal stance.

    Food was seasoned perfectly. The prime rib was cooked perfectly to temperature as requested. The short rib stroganoff was also very good. Portion size for the stroganoff was large. Personally I would like to have a smaller portion and add a green vegetable for balance. The only negative was the temperature of the food. Needs to be upped a little so food doesn't get cold before finishing. Service was great!

    I have been wanting to come to this restaurant for years and finally got the opportunity! The atmosphere was amazing and the food was good. My only thing I did not like was that my biscuit was crunchy with the fried chicken bowl. It just needed to be a fluffier, otherwise it was delicious!
