We stopped here because Emeril had this on the food network recently. He said this was one of the first places he worked and highly recommended a stop for BCP if in Boston. When we were on the trolley, they pointed out the OMNI hotel, so we jumped off and rushed to find the restaurant closed. One of the employees... More

I made my reservation through Open table for Sunday Brunch. I really enjoyed the experience as i was traveling and it was my first Boston experience. We ended up trying Belgian waffle, fruit plate, lobster cake, an omlette and of course finished with the delicious Boston cream by which is worth a try no matter how full you are. The... More

The service from the wait staff is amazing. they even gave us tips on where the good seats are at the red socks game! Got the pre-theater menu. Clam chowder is amazing. The entree wasn't that impressive. Dessert (boston cream pie) was AMAZING. It is a very good deal.

Great breakfast, but I would recommend passing on the overpriced Boston Creme Pie.....I know that it originated here, however, I'm not comparing the taste, but the freshness...ours had a taste of day old refrigeration....and it costs $9 each!

We stepped into the Parker House late in the afternoon, wondering if we might buy some rolls in the hotel gift shop. But an employee we met in the lobby suggested we head up the stairs to the bar, where we could not only sample the famous hot rolls, but also their world-famous Boston Cream Pie. Were we glad we...

My husband and I had the opportunity to go for a leisurely lunch while the kids were busy doing something else. I wanted a really nice restaurant to get dressed up and enjoy a few precious moments alone with my hubby. After looking at a few other places, I settled on the Parker House for the ambience - knowing that... More

This is a historical restaurant--home of Parker House rolls and Boston Cream Pie. Yes, we ate both of their famous dishes and of course, they were delicious! I had Baked Scrod and my husband had scallops. Both were delectable!

I had Sunday brunch at the Parker's restaurant on 8/3/14. I had a cup of clam chowder (delicious) and two signature dishes: Boston scrod and Boston Cream pie. The Parker rolls were warm - add butter, it was a heavenly experience. The service was outstanding and the food was awesome. I cannot wait to return to Boston I will definitely... More

Breakfast buffet was delicious, but pricey. JFK proposed to Jackie in this restaurant. Malcolm X was a bus boy there during Pearl Harbor invasion. The history emanates from the ornate decorations. A must stop for lovers of history. Be sure to be prepared for the price tag,
