Great place to try local delicacies of clam chowder and cream pie!

Although the restaurant is rather formal, it is lively at lunchtime so a great place to drop in for clam chowder and where better than apparently the home of Boston cream pie to feast on this yummy delicacy!

During our meal we had to stop passing servers as they walked by to ask for drinks. There was someone refilling the coffee and... More

We wanted to see the place where the parker house roll and boston cream pie originated so we tried to go to Parker's at the Omni. I believe it is one of the oldest hotels in the country. We missed the lunch service so they sent us to Parker's Bar. They told us we could get anything on their menu... More

My family went to Parker's restaurant to celebrate my daughter's 13th birthday and my college graduation. (same day) I order the seafood paella and it was absolutely delicious! In fact, I'd love to have some of it right now! Of course, for dessert, we had the famous Boston Cream Pie! The service was excellent. It was expensive. I'm not used... More

Have the Boston cream pie! It's the real deal!! We enjoy the ambiance and the fact that it's really old school. It's the kind of place where the staff have been there for years and years!!

We wanted to have small plates and drinks at the Last Hurrah, but once seated we were told that there is no food on weekends :( So the waiter suggested the Parker's Bar, which is upstairs in the lobby of the Omni Parker House. You seat your self and there were plenty of seats on a Saturday night at 8:30pm.... More
