Nice place, options for everyone

Reasonable prices and a decent selection. If you're a vegetarian, there are multiple options between the veggie burgers and salads and even a "build your own" salad menu. Food was good and waitress was pleasant.

Nice little quaint restaurant. We started with the salt and pepper calamari ($5.00 happy hour special), my husband had the soup of the day (beef and barley) which was amazing and finished with the Cajun Salmon. Everything was amazing and our server (Courtney) was awesome!

We have eaten at the Parker on a regular basis for several years, primarily for lunch. Why? The food is consistently good, with a variety of appetizers and entrees that are excellent. One of our favorites is the steak pizza (with extra hot peppers); it's a delicious thin crust pie, with excellent cheese and bits of steak tips. The boneless... More

I had an edamame dish that was really good. I group had an after work drinks and appetizers. Overall, the service was ok and pretty attentive. The food was good. I would go again. My coworkers enjoyed the drinks, especially the salted caramel martini.

The good places to eat in Stratford are few and far between. So what you need to know is that, for date night (after a trip to Two Roads of course!) we often hem and haw between Parker, The Bridge House (actually in Milford but just across the bridge), Parallel Post or a sushi option. Parker often wins out. Why?... More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is something I can count on every time. Most recently, I ordered the short rib grilled cheese which I can recall as if I had it yesterday. The staff is very pleasant and won't rush you. Small place, but very comfortable.

Parker is consistently good food at a fair price. Some unique menu items keep customers from getting bored. When in doubt the mix it up salad can't be beat.

Doesn't look like much from outside but upon entering it has a nice and intimate setting. The service is casual-fancy where you feel like it's fine dining, but the food portions are hardy and delicious! Fish Tacos are the best I've ever had. The French dip is a monster sandwich. Meatloaf is not your mothers meatloaf. We had an amazing... More

We only went to this restaurant because Dao Fusion nearby was closed. No one was disappointed in the choice. The food, casual American, was uniformly delicious. The salad to order was a clever idea.

Loud and uncomfortable; indifferent staff; uninspired food. It's pretty, and the folks at the bar looked to be having a great time.
