Just went to the Parker Restaurant Bar to get some Boston Cream Pie from the place where it was invented!!! Good stop. It was around $9 and about the size of a baseball. Just go in the Omni Parker House Hotel and go to the bar, or restaurant for a quick treat.

My wife and I ate at the Parker's Restaurant with old friends. The place is very elegant and there was no problem getting a reservation on a Saturday night. Francisco (sp?) was our waiter and he did a great job--very informed about the food, he made great recommendations, and he was charming. We ordered one lobster meal, one scallop, and... More

We bought travelzoo voucher but we were NOT able to use, the restaurant claims you can only show up under reservation. Basically you cannot enter if you do not have reservations and reservations needs to be done 2-3 weeks in advance ( they claim to be always booked), we try to make a regular reservation and we have to wait...

Parker's is the restaurant in the Omni Parker House Hotel, allegedly the oldest hotel in America. The hotel is associated with a range of famous people including Charles Dickens, Ho Chi Minh and Malcolm X (both of whom worked here) and JFK. JFK is supposed to have proposed to Jackie over dinner in the restaurant. Despite its grand décor, I... More

This is the second time we have been to Parker's and it continues to be a great restaurant. They actually have fois gras (a generous portion) on the menu. The food is good, not trendy, just really good. The ambiance is completely lovely and the service is very attentive and professional. I had the lobster which was excellent, although the... More

This review is for Parker's Bar, a British-style pub with bar meals that overlooks the entry to Parker's Restaurant, inside the gorgeous and historic Omni Parker House Hotel. It's a perfect British pub in the middle of historic Boston, and it serves delicious, traditional foods that Boston is famous for, like amazingly rich and flavorful baked beans, fresh clam chowder,...
