I was very pleased with Parker's. I have heard mixed reviews on the service there, but I think it was just fine. I did find it a little weird that throughout our time there, we were assisted by 3 different waitresses. I'm not sure if that's normally their system (one for drinks, one for orders, and... read more

It's kind of noisy. Service is hit or miss. Food has gotten expensive and is hit or miss too. The attention to details both in service and food has gone down down down.

Pleasent enough place. Very nice waitstaff that was patient with and attentive to special dietary needs in my party. Extensive menu - all the classics. Very good beer list as well.

We sat inside & had a nice quiet lunch - although it was almost 3:00 PM. The food was good, service was good & we'd recommend it to seniors during the day. I'm sure it gets busy & a little loud the later it gets, but for us at this time of day, it was perfect! The Beef on Weck... More

Parker's has a typical bar menu which features mostly chicken, burgers and steaks. Prices are moderate to low. The food was acceptable, but nothing spectacular. Parker's is frequented by many locals which is always a good sign. Beer is reasonably priced particularly during happy hour (4 to 6) where they had several beer priced at $2 per mug or bottle....

Our server spent most of her time helping the bartender. She would occasionally stop at the table and apologize for not being there because she was helping the bartender. There were a lot of drunks in the place with the majorpalooza going on out on the street. It was hot and stuffy in the restaurant and the waitresses do not... More

Was in Auburn on business and stopped in one night to get food to go, went back the next night to eat in. Both were "slow" nights (Sunday and Monday), but still had a steady stream of people. Spoke with some of the locals and determined it is a favorite local place. Friendly staff, good food. Had an appetizer and... More

We probably eat at Parkers at least once a month, sometimes do take-out, but I don't believe I ever reviewed it before. Parkers has a fairly substantial menu; items are always well prepared and offered in large portions. This visit was three of us (2 adults & a granddaughter). DW had a buffalo chicken salad (enough left over for another... More

I stopped at Parker's while in Auburn on business. This is undoubtedly a popular place with a tavern feel. The staff seemed very busy even though the restaurant was not full. My party was seated by one person, order taken by another, food served by a third and bill collected yet by another. I prefer being served by one server... More

The "Best" Bloody Mary. No doubt! If you want to go to a place with an extensive bar menu and specials every night an a great atmosphere, this is the place.
