Great Food, Great Ambiance

Popular with the locals, Parkway is a must dinner experience if visiting Bethany Beach. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. The Bar is always hopping, and the food and personal attention of the owner makes this a must stop in the beach area. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Bethany and we always try to make time to come to this restaurant for dinner. The service is excellent, the ambiance cozy, and the food is great. We don't eat meat or shellfish, but Parkway always has a choice of fish entrees. We are picky about our fish, but these guys know... More

We have decided that among all the great restaurants here, The Parkway is our favorite. Service is impeccable, Dana (the owner) is lovely, the food is always great, and they have lamb specials in the winter!

We visited this restaurant for dinner during our stay in Bethany. We enjoyed the the fresh catch of the day. I was very impressed with the staff. The chef even paid a personal visit to our table to insure she understood the food allergies one of us had. We will definitely be back for more visits.

Parkway restaurant was a last minute decision but an awesome one. We had the beef carpaccio and crab stack. Both were fabulous. Drinks were generous - enough so we ordered another round at the bar. Mike, the bartender, was very friendly and a skilled "tender". I would definitely recommend and revisit Parkway!

While the service was good, the food was awful and very over-priced. We ordered the lobster tail special, a fish special, and a children's chicken meal. The fish came to the table cold, yet over cooked and dry. We sent it back and ordered a crab-cake instead, which tasted fair at best. The lobster tail was overcooked as well, and... More

My first time inside this restaurant after many, many years of passing by the front entrance on the main strip of Bethany Beach. They do take reservations, so I reserved a table for 2, and my husband and I arrived early, planning on having a martini at the bar before being seated. I was surprised to see the long bar... More

Hello, thanks for taking time to write a review and dining at The Parkway. Creme Brûlée has been on my menu since 1997. I have never been out of it as I make it every other day. It is printed on the dessert menu. Not sure how you missed it or didn't ask server sbout it. It's delicious. Come back... More

For years I had heard about the Parkway Restraunt as a must place to dine. I kept putting off mostly because of its location in the hub of Bethany's Garfield Pkwy. Wow! Sorry it took so long. It was quite wonderful! The staff was extremely friendly on a very busy Friday evening. It was quite crowded so it limited any... More

The Parkway has fresh, delicious food. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. I sat in the back room which is lovely and quiet.

Always dine at parkway when visiting Bethany Beach. The food is high end with great service and atmosphere. Had the soft shell crabs special, which was outstanding. Highly recommend dining at Parkway.
