The place to visit for the original Boston Creme Pie

My wife and I had dinner at Parker's Bar, at the Omni Parker House, solely because we had to have Boston Creme Pies at the place where they were invented. That said, our dinner was outstanding.

The food was very good and the service exceptional. It was set up as a fine dining experience, but breakfast was served buffet style. For the price of breakfast, and it being a buffet, the options were not what you would expect. What we did have was very good, however, you can walk down the street to Quincy Market and... More

I dined at Parker's with my boss and his family, including a 3 year-old, after a retirement cocktail party. We were a little concerned about the toddler, but could not have been treated more warmly by the staff. They provided high chair, backpack full of activities and children's menu - although he was much more interested in the Parker House... More

We were in Boston for a music performance and stayed at the Omni Parker House hotel. As a matter of ease, we decided to do the pre-theatre dinner at the hotel's Parker's Restaurant. The value was very good, the portions were reasonable and the service was appropriate and attentive. To top it off, we both had the establishments Boston Cream... More

Our server was very attentive, but professional during a business discussion and did not insist that we order quickly. The french onion soup was really thick and flavorful, and the crab cake was crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. The aioli was just right.

We just went here for Irish coffees and the original Boston cream pie. A little on the pricier side and the dessert didn't blow my socks off, but still cool to say we were there and tried the original.

We had breakfast here Christmas Eve before heading out to be with family. The staff was very kind and happy (not really what I would expect from people having to work Christmas!). Breakfast was delicious. I would go back for dinner.

My wife and I popped into Parker's on a Friday night after work. It was very busy and seemed to lack servers but our server was nice, very apologetic about our wait for our food and picked up a round of drinks for us as an apology. The food was good and it is always nice to be in the... More

good food, choice of amount in wine pours, great for post theatre. The restaurant was crowded but food service was great. Sandwiches were large, served with fries. Good food for a reasonable charge.
