We were given the name of this restaurant by the hotel we were staying at as it was just down the street. We drove right by at first because it is in a little strip mall which doesn't look like much. But get over it and walk inside! A very nice restaurant awaits you with a neat bar. We were... More

I've been to Parker's three times and have sat at the bar. It's a very cool, industrial like place. All of the food that I have ordered has been very good. The boneless chicken bites for an app are so perfectly cooked and coated with sauce. The fries are delicious. The burgers are great as well. My biggest disappointment is... More

Our dishes were worth the money. It was a bit dark in there. Service was good. I can't wait to go back to shock my taste buds again

My husband and I were invited to dinner at the Parker Eatery last Friday night with friends. We had a reservation, which really wasn't needed. The place was pretty empty at 8:00. The host was very friendly and the service was great. We were seated in a cozy booth in the corner. The atmosphere was casual/trendy. We ordered calamari and... More

Thought we would eat locally before a show... Entered and stood at front quite awhile before anyone noticed. Many people hanging at bar. Place is too dark and chairs are uncomfortable. Ordered salad and butternut squash ravioli. Salad was nothing special and ravioli seemed over cooked and was swimming in oil! Didn't stay for dessert. Too bad

First time . Ordered a 16oz prime rib. Tasteless!!!tough. Didnt even want to save it for steak and eggs in the morning. So disappointed as many patrons are from Oronoque village and advised me to try restaurant . I will go 1 more time but certainly not order steak.

This place has a great atmosphere with really friendly servers and a tasty menu. A mix of upscale pub grub/ apps and options such as filet, prime rib, huge pasta portions, and fish of the day. Cannot go wrong with the Parker burger, any of the wraps, or the roast beef sandwhich. Piled high on warm bread, this is sure... More

We had a "restrict" business meeting at this burger place. It was nice and quite place with great fillet steak and wide wine selection. Service is ok and price very convenient compare VIP steak house names .

Eclectic environment, good service, consistently good food, only one special per day. Fun to sit in bar area. Great appetizers such as lamp lollipops and fish tacos. Excellent butternut squash ravioli, salmon, chicken sausage pasta to name a few.
